Forever Ride (Hellions Ride, #2)
I was given book for honest review. So glad Tessie got her own story. Her little boy is adorable calling the adults out all the time - funny. To die for Shooter knows how to treat a women - correctly called on the chocolate. Really looking forward to more of this series Rex needs his own.

Walking in, I round the corner to the kitchen and stop in my tracks. Tessie is at the table with Axel. She has those little chocolate morsels lined up in front of her and her son, a pan of raw cookies on the other side.
“Okay, Axel, if you have four chocolate chips and you add two more, how many chocolate chips total will we be putting on the top of the cookie?” Tessie asks her son.
“One, two, three, four… I eat one” —which he proceeds to do before continuing— “five, six. We have six chocolate chips on top of that one, Momma.”
I smile at the sight before me.
“You didn’t share with me,” Tessie jokes.
“Momma, you ate like half the bag mixing the cookie dough. You gotta save some for Gigi,” Axel defends.
“Axel, a woman can never have too much chocolate,” Tessie informs her son.
“Always remember that, Axel,” I add, making my way farther into the room. “It applies to all women, and it may get your ass—I mean, butt, outta trouble one day.”
When Tessie laughs, my heart skips a beat. It is the most beautiful sound my ears have ever heard. I’ve never, in all the years at the bar, heard her laugh. Watching her with her son, the light in her eyes, I want nothing more than to protect what the two of them share.
“You’re like the smartest dude ever, mister,” Axel greets me, laughing alongside his mom.
“Nah, just observant. Learn early, chocolate is man’s best friend, not a damn dog.”
“Momma says damn is a yucky word. I’m not allowed to say it. She says it a lot when she stubs her toe and stuff.”
