Merciless Ride by Chelsea Camaron part of the Sheer Strength Collection
The third book in the Hellion’s Ride MC series by Chelsea Camaron it is released with other authors to create the Sheer Strength Collection. I chose to read this book since I have read one of other of Ms. Camaron’s books and I wanted more. What a great book! It says the stories can be stand alones, but I went back and read the first one to get a general idea of who the characters would be. It helped. You got to know Tessie, the bartender at Ruthless and a bit of her story. Her story continues in Merciless Ride and brings us Shooter, another member of the Hellions. He comes to the rescue of Tessie and mans up when no one else will. Namely Rex. What he didn’t expect to happen was to fall in love with her and learn her secret that she has tried so hard to keep.
The series is definitely worth the read. The characters are good and if you love a good MC bad boy, then they will do it for you. I will definitely go back and order the other books in this series. I need my fill of this MC and I’m keeping my eye on Rex. If you have read farther than me, don’t tell me anything!! Thanks Chelsea Camaron!!

Secret Maneuvers by Jessie Lane
Some mistakes from the past haunt us forever… unless fate steps in with a second chance.
One ‘Dear John’ letter haunted Bobby Baker’s every living moment. It was the letter he’d stupidly written to his high school sweetheart, Belle, right after he had left to join the Army. The letter in which he’d told her that he wasn’t so sure they were ready for forever yet. Before he could let her know that the letter, and his second thoughts, were nothing more than a mistake, she disappeared from the small Georgia town they had both been raised in.
Fifteen years after the letter, Belle unknowingly walked back into Bobby’s life when her job as an ATF Agent forced her to work with a group of men secretly headed by the CIA to help her track down whoever was involved in funneling black market weapons to a drug cartel in Mexico.
Bobby planned to use this mission to try to soothe Belle’s hurt feelings while proving to her that their love was meant to be forever. He would use every dirty trick he’d learned since he had joined the Army to maneuver her back into his life for the long haul. Belle was not making it easy, though, as she continued to keep him at arm’s length in the hopes that mistakes of her own would never come to light.
