Beg for Mercy: A High School Bully Romance (Mercy Academy Book 1) by L.A. Hart

A Bookworm Review by Ana

Beg For Mercy

NA Romance

I give this book 5 stars!

Sometimes you need to see the bigger picture and become the bigger person…

Have a look at the blurb:

Aric Prince is an All-American high school football star with a body built like a Greek god and hair so beautiful he could sell shampoo by the boatloads.

The only problem is that Aric’s also a rich, arrogant, and gigantic prick. Nothing but filth and insults come out of his smirking mouth, constantly reminding me that poor, trailer park trash girls like myself don’t belong in his pretentious academy.

Aric and his best friends all think they’re untouchable.

But the cocky bastard is finally going down this year.

I’ve hit the motherload of blackmail on the jerk, pun intended, and I can’t wait to give him exactly what he deserves.

Aric Prince’s reign at the academy is coming to an end.

Before I’m done with him, he’ll be on his knees, begging for mercy.





It’s amazing what a book can do to you. I mean, it can put you into tears, a fit of rage or smile like a lunatic. It’s amazing how our mind works.
And all of this is thanks to our amazing authors.
L.A. Hart, aka Lane Hart, started a new series and I know that you’ll love it.
I’ve been reading her books for a while now and I can’t get enough.
Her writing is sweet and beautiful, intense and emotional, hot and so much more in between.
Just tell her what you like and she’ll make it happen.
Beg For Mercy is her first release under this new name and it’s the first book from the Mercy Academy series.
This new book explores the lives of Aric and Maddie.
Aric is a high school star, cocky that doesn’t have a care in the world. He’s rich, arrogant and a jerk.
Maddie is fed up with being treated the way she is. She’s poor but she needs to take care of her brothers. She works hard and just wants to graduate. But when some pricks, mainly Aric, start mentality abusing her she realized that she had to do something.
Oh my goodness… This book nailed it… Jesus…
Superb plot, very well written, super engaging and intense. It was a pleasure to read it and I want more.
Once I started this book I simply couldn’t put it down.
It was one thing after the other and I just wanted to keep reading to find out what would happen.
This book presented us with betrayal, abuse, drama, secrets as well as sacrifice, love, loyalty and unconditional love.
Here we have a huge example of what someone can submit himself to provide for the ones you love
It was an amazing experience that made me see a few things in a new way.
And… We have some freaking awesome hot stuff. Just have a look at it.
L A. Hart, you nailed it. This book was the most perfect to start what I know will be a huge success.
Please don’t let me wait too long to read Blake’s story…

A Few Teasers:



“Hello, boys,” Maddie drawls. And when I’m finally able to lift my eyes to her face, I find her smirking.

Right. At. Me.

There’s some type of seismic activity taking place underneath the school’s foundation. Hell must be freezing over or something because Maddie looks…happy. She’s never happy or smiling, always glowering.

“What are you up to?” I finally ask.

“You and I need to have a talk,” she says.

“You and…you want to talk to Aric?” Blake questions, sounding just as surprised as I am.

Without breaking my gaze to respond to him directly, she asks, “Mind running off your minions for a few minutes? We have some private business to discuss.”

“No, we don’t,” I reply without hesitation. Who the fuck does she think she is, coming in here, sitting on our table, demanding shit of me? “Why don’t you find your way on over to the rejects table with Hannah like a good little bitch and sit your ass down where it belongs?” I ask.

Aric,” Blake warns me when I try to run her off. Not that it works. She doesn’t move an inch.

Finally turning her upper body around enough to look at my best friend, she asks, “Mommy get a new ride, Blake? A spiffy new SUV?”

“Yeah,” he responds with an audible gulp and his brow furrowing. “Why?”

“No reason,” Maddie responds with a shrug of her shoulders. “Just saw her sitting in it at the grocery store yesterday. Looked like it had a roomy interior. Very roomy.” Her dark, army green eyes peek at me from underneath her long lashes for a second before returning to him.

Son of a bitch!

She knows! She must have seen us.

Goddammit! Collette and I should’ve known better. Just because no one we know shops in the rundown, poor part of town, doesn’t mean no one would see us. I should’ve turned her down, but she was hot and horny and her husband, Blake’s dad, was actually home for once, so we couldn’t fuck in their house.

“Ah, well, I could probably borrow it if you want to hang out,” Blake tells her, completely misunderstanding her point for bringing up his mom’s vehicle.

Maddie taps her index finger to her delectable lips as if considering his offer and then says, “Let me think about that. No. I don’t date rich boys. But I do need to pass on an important message to Aric. Right now. Unless he would rather me share it with the entire school?”

“Give me a minute,” I turn to the guys and tell them while my forehead breaks out in a nervous sweat. “I’ll meet you outside in a few.”

“Later fellas,” Maddie says with a flutter of her fingers.

“Are you serious?” Blake asks me.

“Go,” I tell him and look to Royal to help me out.

“Come on, man,” Royal says to Blake when he gets to his feet. “Nothing she has to say is worth hearing anyway.”

Finally, Blake stands up and walks off, casting one last look over his shoulder before him and Royal push open the double doors that lead outside.

“Talk fast,” I tell her, crossing my arms over my chest and acting as unaffected as possible by what she’s about to say.

Sliding Blake’s tray out of the way, Maddie spins around so that her feet are now planted in Blake’s empty seat next to me.


“I can see up your skirt,” I tell her when I do a double take at her red, satin panties that match her bra.

“So?” she asks without flinching, gripping the edge of the table on either side of her.

“So, why don’t you spread your legs a little wider and I’ll eat you for lunch,” I say while staring at her pussy.

With an exasperated huff, she crosses her legs at the knee. “Is that better? Can your tiny little jock brain focus on the words coming out of my mouth instead of my cunt now? It’s sort of important, and I’m facing you because I’m pretty sure you don’t want anyone reading my lips.”

“Now I’m just thinking of what I can put between your lips to shut you up,” I tell her honestly. “Less than a year to go before I win our bet and get to unload in your mouth every fucking day.”

“Oh, please. Keep your dirty dick in your pants, you nasty motherfucker.”

And there it is.

“What do you want?” I ask through gritted teeth.

Picking up her cell phone and thumbing through it, she says, “You mean what do I want from you to keep my mouth shut about these photos and video of you and Blake’s mother?”

I snatch the device right out of her hand to see for myself.

And there I am, kissing Collette in public like an idiot while her hand cups my cock like she owns it.

“Fuck,” I mutter.

“They’re all saved to the cloud, so don’t even bother trying to delete them,” Maddie says when she jerks the phone away from me.

“So? What’s it going to take to keep you quiet?” I ask because no one can find out about this, especially not Blake.

Label Me Proud by Stephie Walls

A Bookworm Review by Ana

Label Me Proud

NA/Contemporary Romance

I give this book 5 stars!

The line that separates friendship from love is super thin so you can’t keep ignoring it… Take a chance…

Have a look at the blurb:

We’ve been best friends since we were five: Masyn and me.
But nothing’s as simple as it seems.
Relationships change and so do people.
Especially now.
When innuendos and hints aren’t enough, it’s time to confess.
I’m in love with my best friend.
…And I think I’m too late.



This lady is the bomb creating romantic and breathtaking stories that will capture you heart in a sec. Each and every book has the ability to hook me up, to make me cry, to make me laugh, to make me blush and so much more.
You can think that the stories can become repetitive but you’re so wrong. Each book is unique in their own way and you will fall in love with the characters.
Stephie Walls is the goddess that I was talking about. Her writing is simple yet powerful, super detailed and engaging with a touch of feelings and hot stuff.
Label Me Proud is her latest release and tells the stories of Lee, Masyn and Beau.
They share a friendship stronger that steel and they will protect each other no matter what.
Lee has a thing for Masyn but he can’t come forward and jeopardize her friendship. He keeps blaming him for not stood up for her back in highschool and that keep haunting him. Years passed and his feelings continue but can he go for it?
Masyn had a normal life until the day her so called boyfriend humiliated her. After that day she refuses to enter into a relationship afraid of being hurt again.
She’s a mechanic at an auto shop. Pretty cool right? She’s doing what she likes and had proved that girls can do it better than guys.
Jesus…. What a book…. What a ride…
I knew that this author would provide me with a breathtaking story. Oh boy!!
The plot is superb, very well written, super engaging and intense.
The interation between the characters is beautiful, super sweet and the complicity they share is so strong…
The story progressed smoothly and quickly and there were parts that I wanted to get into the book and shake them and bring them to life… Let’s talk about two stubborn people…
This book will present you with love, loyalty, friendship, as well as desire and sexiness.
Oh Stephie… You rock girl. Your words do things to me…
Please tell me that Beau will have his own book…
Can’t wait for more books from you.

Mad Love (Guns & Ink Book 1) by Shana Vanterpool

A Bookworm Review by Ana

Mad Love

NA Romance

I give this book 5 stars!

Scars can make you tremble but love can glue it all together but for that to happen you need to let go.

Have a look at the blurb:

She was a disruption he never wanted.

He was everything she distrusted.

Klayton Caldwell owns a tattoo shop in Denver, Colorado, and has seen just about everything and met just about every kind of person. And they all have one thing in common. Ink.

He isn’t complicated. What you see is what you get. Sex? Always. Relationships? Never. Pleasantries? He doesn’t do that either. Those who can’t handle his mouth get inked elsewhere. Klayton holds everyone at a distance, even his friends. He doesn’t do “close.”

Until Madison ends up in his tattoo parlor, broken, afraid and alone. There’s something about her, and almost immediately, Klayton’s guard drops. Now, everything he knows about himself changes as his life begins to unravel.

Twenty-year-old Madison Hart’s future was taken from her the moment she was abducted from her college campus and held captive by a sick f^#%ker. After escaping, she flees, running into a stranger. A stranger who shares a similar past. Someone who might be able to help her heal. If she’ll let him.

Madi comes into Klayton’s life like a storm. She’s beautiful. Pitiful. Dangerous. Her pain runs deep enough that she may never be able to talk about what she’s experienced. Her refusal to talk takes a level of patience Klayton’s not sure he has.

He must navigate her broken pieces by changing everything he is. Who he’s been all these years won’t work anymore. But Madi fights him, she fights herself. She fights the madness.

She refuses to talk. He can’t control his mouth. She doesn’t want to be touched. He can’t help himself. They don’t want love. Inside this storm, is a love so mad it might destroy them both.

That’s it… It’s official… I’m insane.. Insanely crazy and obsess with books. I just can’t put them down nor do I want to do so.
Shana Vanterpool had started a new series and I’m so happy for it because I love new authors.
Her writing is intense, beautiful and raw.
Mad Love is the first book from the Guns & Inked series and I can’t imagine what’s next…
This book tells the stories of Klayton and Madison.
Klayton had suffered a lot in his life and wants to to be left alone doing his craft. He just wants peace and ink people. One day his best friend brings a girl that needs help and let’s just say that it was a bumpy road to do.
Madison had a ruff life after being abducted from her campus. She was kept by an insane guy and was abused in every way you can imagine. When she’s able to get away she seeks help knocking on Klayton’s door.
This was a story about two broken souls that had suffered so much and just want to find a happy place. The plot is amazing, intense and sad sometimes. I wad so into the story that I didn’t wanted to put the book down. I simply could do so and that made me a prisoner of this plot.
Shana you nailed it. I was anxious, sad, mad, furious sometimes and I’m so glad for the chance to know your work. But I’m scared. Lol. Scared for what’s about to come.
