Dropping out of school, she returns to her hometown and begins to settle in. Getting the only job she could as a bartender she spends her days caring for her son and nights serving the Hellions Motorcycle Club and their affiliates.  Tired of waiting for Rex to grow up, she’s faced with the bane existence of her life until one night changes everything. In the darkest hour of her merciless ride through life, she’s saved by a quiet, laid back Hellion.  Andy ‘Shooter’ Jenkins has always been around. Too wrapped in Rex she has never really noticed him before. He has never been loud or known to have the girls hanging all over him. He is a mystery. A chance encounter brings him to her rescue not once but twice.  The Desert Ghosts Motorcycle Club are in town and bring their own brand of chaos right to Tessie’s door. Forced into her day to day life, Shooter is doing everything he can to shelter and protect her as lines are crossed and a war between two clubs begins.  Secrets revealed putting two brothers in the Hellions Motorcycle Club at a serious crossroads in their lives.  This is not a ride for pleasure. This is not a ride for safety.

Merciless Ride by Chelsea Camaron

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Not only was this a great MC book about two people who’ve been through hell who end up being each other’s saving grace but it also ties in many other series from other authors. Two of those series I follow and it’s a treat see some of those characters show up here.

I think many women can relate to at one time being a man’s booty call. Knowing that was all he was really looking for but yet we allowed it due to the familiarity and the convenience. This was the case between Tesse Harlow and Rex Crews, a member of the Hellions MC. At the start of this book Tesse has decided she’s had enough and cuts things off with him. And when something unimaginable happens to her its another Hellion that turns out to be her savior – Andy “Shooter” Jenkins.

Shooter has never like the casual way Rex treated Tesse, always flaunting and doing other women in front of her but it wasn’t his business to say anything. Now that she has broken free and comes to need help, he is there for her and her son and her mother who has MS. But Shooter has a few demons from his past that make him think he will never be good enough to be someone’s significant other, but when the horrible thing happens to Tesse he waste no time in claiming her has his ol’ lady so she can get the protection of the club she needs. This is where the healing process for both of them starts.

There is a big secret that Tesse been keeping from everyone that is brought out in the open which causes conflict at first but also helps one person see the wrongs he has done and starts him on a better path. The tie in to the other series was great to see especially since I had just finished reading
Stripping Her Defenses by Jessie Lane which also introduced the characters that are going to be in a new series both written by Jessie and Chelsea.
