Sum It Up! I so wanted to love this book but couldn't.

To love is to burn….
Having been set on fire once, Zan is unwilling to repeat the experience. Personal attachment goes against his code of looking out for number one. The universe’s oldest rebel, Zan has turned his back on the pampered life of luxury and made his own way aboard a living ship he and his pirate crew use to take from the privileged and sustain themselves. It’s a good, dishonest life, but he’s gone far too long without the feel of a woman’s embrace.

Alone on an alien world, Gia longs for physical satiation, something none of the empaths can give her without a more lasting connection. Zan is the only man willing to see to her needs and though it shames her, her body responds to his on a level she has never experienced before, an intimate connection that reaches beyond sex and into the ashes of her withered heart. Bliss, until her health guard fails at a critical moment, exposing her to Zan’s memories. Now she’s saddled with a space pirate who won’t take no for an answer.

When the universe is out to get you, paranoia is just smart thinking. (Goodreads)

I so wanted to love this book but couldn't. I like science fiction and that was what enabled me to give No Mercy a 3. The science fiction aspect of the book was great and a definite plus. Zan was very sexy and the sex scenes were hot and super steamy, but his character was a bit lacking. Zan needed to be more alpha and less submissive in his role. 

I am not opposed to a storyline where women are treated less than worthy, but this one seemed a bit much. I also didn't understand why Gia was allowed this awe inspiring space ship after being branded a traitor and no one wanted to come after her and retrieve it. I think it would be best to read No Limits first and build more of a liking for Gia and you would understand her character better. Overall, it was a decent read and had a great science fiction aspect!
