I was surprised how much I loved this book. In the back of my head I had Rex and Tessie together, but at the start of this book I was rooting for Shooter. I don’t remember seeing him in the other books, but I feel effortlessly in love with him!
Tessie, it’s hard to describe her. I really enjoyed being in her head and getting to know her of another level. She was smart, beautiful, and had a backbone that we love from this authors characters.
Shooter was the sweetest thing at times. From the start he was on the tender side, but when it came to protection, to his feelings he was on biker level. His past really affected the future and the man he is today.
I loved seeing Tessie helping battle his demons. Moving forward together. He helped her just as much battle her demons. This book had more heart to it, more drama you could say. The author hits on a few subjects that could be controversial, but she did an amazing job.
Overall this book fills you with sadness, tears and heartbreak. The author gutted me, just to put my heart back together and fall in love with a new hero. My list of book boyfriends is getting longer with every book I read in this series! 5 stars. #2OCCJD
