I'm really not sure how to rate this one. I'd probably give it 3 stars because of that, but I was engrossed and it's Amy Lane, so I'm giving it the benefit of the doubt and bumping it to 4.I felt bad for Chase, and understood how his past made him who he was. But. But I also felt so bad for Mercy, and it made it difficult at times to remain sympathetic to Chase when he was screwing her over so badly. I felt bad about what he was doing to Tommy, too, but at least Tommy knew what was going on and could make an informed choice.As I think more about it, I think the Mercy situation was my biggest gripe. If not for that, I probably would have loved this book. I loved all the secondary characters (well, the supporting ones, not the jerks like Chase's dad) and look forward to seeing more of them. I might even have been fine if the book ended with more resolution for Mercy and their relationship. I get that her giving him the baby is supposed to demonstrate that she forgives him, or something, but I'd feel better to actually see her do well and them to really make peace (and friends) with each other again.
