When Ian left for college. Mercy begged to go with him, so she could escape her life of probably-fatal-small-town-boredom. He refused. Mercy found her own way out. More than a decade later, it will take her best friend’s wedding to bring her back to town for more than a layover. Mercy’s here for Liz. That won’t stop Mercy from teasing, tempting, and pushing Ian’s limits… When Ian left for college. Mercy begged to go with him, so she could escape her life of probably-fatal-small-town-boredom. He refused. Mercy found her own way out. More than a decade later, it will take her best friend’s wedding to bring her back to town for more than a layover. Mercy’s here for Liz. That won’t stop Mercy from teasing, tempting, and pushing Ian’s limits… Mostly to show him what he left behind. Only partly because he looks like a god in his tux. The moment Ian sees Mercy—confident, stunning, and definitely all grown up—he wants a taste before she vanishes back to the big city. Then Liz discovers her fiancé is already married to someone else. Ian won’t add more heartbreak to his sister’s life by hitting on her best friend. Besides, Mercy’s advertising firm is competing with Ian’s for the same make-or-break-me contract. Mercy and Ian are determined to go their separate ways, but fate has other plans. As they’re thrown together again and again, the temptation of forbidden fruit proves impossible to resist… but giving in could send their worlds, and the lives of those they care about most, spiraling out of control.

    Mercy is fantastic. She is a strong, sexy and so accomplished because she learned early to trust herself. She may have lost her first love Ian when he went away to college but in doing so she found herself. When reunited with Ian for her best friend, Liz’s wedding it is Ian who becomes addictive to the fabulous all grown up Mercy. The push and pull of their new relationship had me cheering for Mercy and waiting for Ian to catch up.

    Great story, angsty arousing and romantic I don’t like to give spoilers on the books that I read. I believe the blurb on the back is enough for you to decide if you will read the book or not. If you choose to read, enjoy!

    Five minutes ago, I finished reading Allyson Lindt's newest title Selling Seduction (Your Ad Here Book #1). I pre-ordered the title last night when I remembered it was dropping today, since it's my day off and I wanted to enjoy a fun romance. (Full disclosure: Allyson & I have been friends for a number of years, but my review is totally separate from personal regards) I'm still grinning over this book.

I pre-ordered the title last night when I remembered it was dropping today, since it's my day off and I wanted to enjoy a fun romance. (Full disclosure: Allyson & I have been friends for a number of years, but my review is totally separate from personal regards) I'm still grinning over this book. Admittedly, one of my biggest weaknesses in the romance genre is the Best Friend's Big Brother Trope. It doesn't always work well, but Allyson pulled this off beautifully. Right off the bat, you know what's going on, who all the players are, and what kind of issues Mercy and Ian are facing. There are a few little twists and turns plot-wise that were so perfectly done that I had to stop and gape at my computer screen. I'm at a coffee shop, so I couldn't scream at the computer the loud "WHAT" that I wanted to, but I did immediately send a tweet to Allyson, shouting because I had not expected the plot twist that happened. The emotions in this book were so vivid and realistic, the obstacles that the heroes were up against felt just as valid as if they were real people. I felt like the dialogue was on point--and I particularly liked the way that Mercy would call Ian out when he would shove his foot down his throat. Something I realized about halfway through the book was that Mercy is an amazing example of how to do female characters correctly. She's not perfect. She has insecurities, a past that still affects her to this day, she's faking it til she makes it, and she's not any extreme of one thing or another. She capable of being the strong businesswoman without sacrificing who she is for it. She sticks to her guns, even if it hurts. She's complex and real and I love her. I am so looking forward to reading the next book, featuring Liz Thompson (Ian's little sister and Mercy's best friend). LEASING LOVE is supposed to be out later this year, and as soon as it's up on Amazon, I will be pre-ordering it.

There are two people she wants to avoid - Ian, her best friends brother / teenage crush and her father, the man she left town to get away from all those years ago. This had all the components of a good story, there’s a bit of drama, there’s angst, there’s romance and deception but it somehow fell short. Mercy still holds a grunge against Ian for refusing to take her with him when he left for college but the fact is 1) they weren’t in a relationship. She had a crush on him, not the other way round and 2) she was 15! Why would a guy heading off to college take a young girl with him?! Her grudge is irrational. On top of that, she protests too much (but not for long) and does it badly. I was also a bit confused about why she wanted to get away from her father so badly in the first place. Anyway, there’s some shocking surprises in store for Liz on her wedding day. As a result, Mercy hangs around a bit longer to support her friend. I was a bit shocked at Liz’s behaviour. I had a little ‘WTF?’ Moment when she makes her little erm ‘confession’ to Mercy. She clearly isn’t thinking properly. Seriously, where did that come from? - so random! As expected, Mercy and Ian can’t keep their hands off each other despite her weak protestation but for me, the sex lost it’s intensity because she ran so hot and cold with him. Her mouth keeps telling him it’s temporary but her body says otherwise, whereas Ian makes it clear that he wants more. For once, it’s the man who comes across as a nice guy and the girl grates on your nerves. It has a happy ending and Mercy finally gets her act together. I suspect the next instalment will be about Liz, goodness knows, there’s plenty to say about her though.

    I am giving this book a 2.5 star rating. I've read other books by Allyson Lindt that I have enjoyed so I was expecting the same from this book. From the book blurb, it should have all the elements of a good story. The sex scenes are hot and steamy, but I just could not engage with these characters. The premise of the book is that after 12 years away, Mercy comes back to her hometown for her best friend's wedding. My problems with the storyline started in Chapter 1 and continued from there.

I might believe that Liz, the best friend, didn't know about her fiancee already being married if she didn't come from an "old money" family. But, especially these days, I'm sure they would have had background checks done on him and discovered that fact long before the day of the wedding. For me, the best elements were when Mercy and Ian (Liz's brother and object of Mercy's teenage crush) were discussing their advertising businesses. Selling Seduction is the first book in the Your Ad Here series and can be read as a standalone. I will read the next book in the series and hope I enjoy it more than I did this one. I received an ARC from the author in exchange for an honest review.

    Coming home! This read was romantic with a tinge of wtf moment towards the end. Enjoyed this story about Mercy and Ian finding their way back to each other. It definitely had all the feels. Starting out with a dramatic moment, and ends with a nice sexual undertone that followed them through the whole book. I enjoyed the sex scenes that drew a lot to the imagination with just the right amount of details. In some ways I can see how this couple can second guess themselves and fumble it up.

    Sweet 5 stars This other flat so much to these characters that I was floored several times I was angry but I thoroughly enjoyed this journey of this couple that only did this author bring a Man whore basically together with a one night from a childhood friend. The sex was hot but at times missed the mark. The happily ever after and the combination of these two characters brought a sense of longing that we all would love to have in our childhood to adult hood. Happy reading

    Selling Seduction is a story of finally getting your teenage crush to notice you when you're all grown up. I really enjoy the author's idea of getting our H/h back in the same zip code at a wedding that goes all wrong. Ian and Mercy were flirty and fun, there conversations and easy banter were fun to read. I wasn't a fan of one part of the story involving Mercy and her BFF's relationship. I'm interested in the remaining books to come and ready to read other books by this author. Selling Seduction is a story of finally getting your teenage crush to notice you when you're all grown up.

    Awww, what a sexy-sweet new series that will suck you in and not let go. I liked that the characters were strong but still have real flaws like someone you would personally know. The friendship that the story is centered around is really good and I could see some of the things they did happening in realy life with me and my BFF..lol Lost love coming back together and trying to make it work always has a special place in my heart.

    Reviewing for Book Boyfriend Heaven Selling Seduction by Allyson Lindt was a good read it was cute and flirty with just the right amount of sexy thrown in it. I loved how Ian and Mercy were the same in attitude and in way of thinking of how relationships worked. It was also good seeing how they have affected each other and helped each other grow and become complete people. I can’t wait to see what this author will do next with these characters.
