Tessa is the barmaid that everyone sees, but doesn't really know. Everyone except for Shooter. He sees her. She has had something with Rex for years, but he has never claimed her or taken care of her. She has been on her own taking care of her son and her mother. One night in the supply closet everything changes. Shooter is there for her in his quiet yet strong way. When she is struggling with what happened, he is there to hold her and love on her and she loves him right back. When he discovers the secret she has been keeping, it forces him to make a choice that will put him in a bad position. He loves her enough to make that choice letting her know that she is his always.
Shooter is my favorite and I so loved that Tessa was his forever. He deserved a happily ever after just as much as she did. I loved his interactions with her son. So sweet. Her son fell in love right along with them.
I give Merciless Ride 5 hearts!
