Promises of Mercy (Montana Promises #1) by Vella Day

Promises of Mercy (Montana Promises, #1) 

From Goodreads

GENRE: Medical Romance, Contemporary Western Romance, Erotica ménage romance, (MFM), Cowboy cop

Killing is wrong. The reason doesn’t matter.

When oncology nurse, Amber Delacroix, learns her reckless brother has been in a paralyzing motorcycle accident, sorrow fills her soul. He’s murdered a few days later, and now she’s utterly devastated. Adding to life’s cruelty, the cowboy cop assigned to her brother’s case brings her in for questioning.

Stone Benson, the paramedic who brought Amber’s brother into the hospital, stays by her side throughout the tragedy. He treats her with kindness and compassion—something she hasn’t experienced much in her life. Amber yearns for more than his comforting words, and they embark on a tremulous journey. Just when she feels that their relationship is at a turning point, he reveals that he likes to share his women with his good friend and roommate, Cade. That turns out to be a huge problem, because Cade is the cop who believes she’s guilty of killing her brother.

As chance would have it, another murder occurs when both Cade and Amber are in the same location. Realizing she’s not the mercy killer, Cade offers a heartfelt apology—one that includes dinner and a sharing of souls. When things heat up between them, she succumbs to his passionate ways. The big question that plagues her now is where does Stone fit in?

Stone knows exactly where Amber needs to be. Right between him and his best friend, Cade. He'll do whatever is necessary to convince her that she has finally met two men she can trust and build a life with.

Too bad the killer has other ideas. When he goes after Amber, what will the men need to do to save her in time to pursue a loving ménage relationship?

PUBLISHER’S NOTE: This adult contemporary romance contains explicit sexual content, graphic language, and situations that some readers may find objectionable (double penetration, ménage, violence). Not intended for those under the age of 18. 
CAVEAT: But if you love medical erotica with a contemporary western setting, this book is for you.

My thoughts

This book is definitely for the OVER 18's. As the erotic passages that it contains are quite explicit at times.

This is the first book that I've read  by this Author.  It's the first in the Montana Promises series.  I had high hopes for this book, as I quite enjoy an erotic read occasionally. This fell a little short for me if I'm honest. The reader is quite a way into the story before there is any action. Now don't get me wrong I don't expect it to be all wham bam thank you Mam from the start, but I found this a little lacking. I felt that the Author had decided to write an erotic story, but had got a little engrossed in the storyline surrounding Amber and her two romeos, which formed the backbone of the story and then threw in the erotic passages as an afterthought.

Based on having read this one, I won't be reading any of the others in the series. Please don't let this put you off though, as you might enjoy it more than I did.

I got this story as a freebie some time ago. In my opinion it's worthy of a 2.5/3 stars or 5/6 out of 10.
