Mercy is no friend of mine. Karma, she has yet to show kindness to me.
The hits just keep on coming for Tessie Marie Harlow. She has never had an easy life. Her mom disabled, her dad long gone, and a single mom raising a rambunctious little boy, that’s Tessie’s world.
Her childhood aspirations to be a nurse long since disappeared after a college spring fling both blessed and burdened her with a baby boy. 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. This is not a ride for love. This is a ride for endurance. Mercy has never once shined her grace down for these two, but in the midst of the danger and lies can they learn to rely on one another and ride it out together?
okay, so we know Tessie from previous books, but we don’t really know her. THIS is her story through and through. That’s the best way for me to say it. This is not only her story, but also her awakening and the awakening of things that maybe needed to stay asleep … criptic much you say LOL you have to experience this blind.
From the outside, Tessie and Shooter seem harmless really. I would even go as far as calling them wallflowers of sorts in this world. Yeah, no, that doesn’t last long! You see, Tessie has been what you would call available to Rex for sex whenever it pleases him for quite sometime and him being a brother, Shooter has had to stand on the sidelines and just let it happen … until he doesn’t 🙂
It takes a lot for a story to creep into my heart and just settle there and reading this book once again from last year’s binge has brought out all the emotional warmth that put this story at the top of my list in 2015. It’s one of the main reasons I stopped binging after the next book lol I didn’t want the love I had for Tessie’s story to be replaced …
The warning that you see in the blurb is not to be taken lightly. But what happens isn’t dragged out in the book. It happens and it changes the tone of the story and the path of three people and a motorcycle club itself but its dealt with and we move forward. The real story is the journey of Tessie
I’ve said it before but I’ll mention it again … The Hellions are not to be missed if you like to read MC romance fiction. They are the top for me in this trope!
