OMG! I loved Shooter and Tessie!! I'm not sure why I went into this thinking that somehow it would be Rex and Tessie in the end but I'm so glad it didn't work out that way. Chelsea Camaron gave these characters so much freaking heart. Although I didn't condone the secret Tessie kept, I kinda understood it. Even with Rex's POV, you could tell that he still had a lot of growing up to do. However, Shooter more than made up for everything. That man! He was sweet, considerate, honest, honorable, prot ...more
Best book of the series I think so far.

Oh, Wow! Oh, Wow! Oh, Wow! You have to read this book! Merciless Ride is the third book of The Hellions series by the master of MC hotties Chelsea Camaron and the best by far!

Tessie Harlow has been Rex's booty call for far too long. Rex was her girl crush, then college hook-up and now a convenient piece whenever he's at the bar that Tessie bartends at. She is so over that and has made it clear that she is no longer one of his many, many chicks that are just w

Shooter and Tessie where do I began . Tessie was the enigma, not much was know but she was a presence in the first two books. There was a good reason why and this book explodes because of the secret that Tessie has been keeping .

Life hasn’t been easy for Tessie, but she doesn’t complain. Her mother is disabled and she has a adorable rambunctious boy she tries to bring up the best on her ow

Merciless Ride Review
It’s no secret that I love Miss. Camaron’s writing. So, when I got Merciless Ride, I squeaked in delight.
With each prior book on this series, Miss. Camaron took me on a roller coaster ride, full of tight turns and steep slopes. This book was no different.
First, we have Tessie: Strong, hard worker, and one hell of a good mother. I love when I can relate to the characters I read. Anyone who has struggled in life will sympathize with Tessie.
Then we have Shooter, *sighting*.

LOVED!!! We knew about the strange and confusing relationship between Rex and Tessie from prior books but this book gives us the whole story. Tessie knows it's time to move on and live her own life and this is her story. After the knocks life has dealt her over the years it is so wonderful to see how everything works out so great for her. You don't want to miss this story! We all need a Shooter in our lives. I highly recommend it.

Favorite of the series Chelsea Camaron knows how to take you on a ride. Mercy is no friend to Tessie or Shooter. I loved the chemistry. Rex gah I wanted to smack him but I still have a soft spot for him.

Chelsea Camaron has hit this one out of the park. I absolutely loved One Ride and Forever Ride, yet this book takes it to a whole new level. The character development, the story line... it was just absolutely fantastic! You don't actually have to read book one and two to enjoy this story so there should be no reason on why you haven't already purchased or are purchasing this book. SO GO ONE CLICK THIS ONE NOW

Life as a single mother is a hardship that Tessie Harlow knows all too well. A struggle to raise her son and help care for her ailing mother. There never seems to be enough hours in the day or money on hand for bills. Tessie spends time with her son during the day, and works as a bartender at night. The bar that Tessie works at is frequented by the members of the Hellions Ride Motor Cycle Club.

Two people with demons find their way to each other. Tessie has been burned and Shooter has dealt with too much loss in his time. One dreadful night brings these two together, maybe forever.

Shooter, Shooter, Shooter... I'm in love. When he says baby...swoon! Shooter has a demon that haunts him every day, can he find the strength to let it go? This man is loving, caring, sexy, and understanding. He brings the calm to the storm building up inside Tessie.

I think this was my favorite in the series so far.

I loved the maturity level the author set in this read. That alone set an excellent tone to an already good story.

Shooter was an awesome H. He was strong for the h. He protected her and helped her before and after he SAVED her.

***The graphic-ness used for what our h went through was brutal. The act alone was brutal enough, but the details made it a definite trigger scene for those that can't handle rape of the h.

These two were kind of a surpris

Shooter that boy is so caring, "baby, I don't know if he's alive. I shot him twice in the legs. I didn't want to risk you, so I only injured him enough to get you outta there." He's not stupid, "I know you're awake, baby," Shooter says without moving under me. His arms are still casually slung over me like we sleep together all the time." Sometimes the boy has to calm it down but it's hard to do around Tessie, "eff, I can't think like this. Calming my chub from becoming a tent in my jeans, I try ...more

Merciless Ride was so much more to the MC genre. Chelsea Camaron still kept with the tradition of bring a character driven story while give an MC romance fan like me all the drama and suspense that their world encompasses. Merciless was different from he previous books. It had all the action I missed from the previous two AND kept all the good stuff I loved about them.

Shooter is stealth. Shooter is the man in the shadows. He is the mystery that keeps you needing more.

Book 3 in the Hellions Novel series, this book could be read as a standalone however I do recommend reading books 1 and 2 to give you a little more of the character's back stories.

I am going to cut to the chase before I go any further into this review. This is NOT Rex's story. To fellow fans of the Hellions series I am sure this will disappoint you as much as it did me. Let me assure you though that this story does feature our Crew's cousins quite heavily as we are back at the Catawba Ch

Tessie and Rex share history. They've had a long standing relationship of sex only, but things are changing. Tessie has waited years for Rex to grow up and make her something more than a convenient piece. When he fails to help her and Shooter is sent instead it shows her that she could have something more, maybe something real. Tessie has secrets though that the brotherhood can't find out, if they do she may not be the only one to suffer.

Tessie is an amazing character. She cares for everyone in

4/5 stars

Tessie Harlow has worked at the bar Ruthless which is the main bar that the Catawba chapter of the Hellions hang out in. We saw her in book 1, One Ride, where she is just a fall-back hookup for Tripp’s (Doll’s old man) cousin Rex. But she knows that Rex isn’t into commitment and that the only thing he’ll ever actually give her is sexual pleasure.

I have read a lot of MC books but this one takes the cake! It was written so well that even if you aren't a fan of MC books, it is worth the read. It deals with the same kinds of dark issues, but it is done so tastefully and perfectly! I loved it!! And it felt so much more REAL than any others I have read. This is how I imagine it sh

EEEEP!!! Shooter is a tall drink of water. Tessie is the such resilient character sooo how can you not love them. So this book was about two minor side characters and TBH it may be one of my favorites. I mean Tessie has HAD IT with Rex and his man-whoring ways so she never SAW Andy aka Shooter.

Merciless Ride is Tessie and Shooter’s story and is my favourite of the Series so far!

Tessie has been around since the first book and we know her as the bartender that works at Ruthless where the Catawba Hellions Chapter frequent. We also know that she has been hooking up with Rex on or off for years however, she swears off of him at the start of this book.

“Be men to be proud of. Actions speak louder than words, boys. When you do wrong, and believe me, you will do more wrong than right some days, you own up to it. Completely. You can’t take back the stone once it’s thrown. The reality is, you can never really right the wrong once it’s done. It will live on forever in one’s memory. You can atone for it. You can work hard to assure you never make the same mistake twice. But there is a time for freedoms and a time for life responsibilities. Be the man to handle his responsibilities. Be the man to take responsibility for his shortcomings and failures. Take pride in being humble enough to admit when you are wrong and when you have failed....“People will think many things of you. Some true, some complete lies. Their opinions don’t matter. The half-truths, the lies, the many things people will think of you throughout this life should never hold weight. It is what you see in the mirror looking back at you that should tell you the character and the man in which you are. Look in the mirror, boys, and be men to be proud of.”
