An unforgettable new series from acclaimed author Katie McGarry about taking risks, opening your heart and ending up in a place you never imagined possible.
Seventeen-year-old Emily likes her life the way it is: doting parents, good friends, good school in a safe neighborhood. Sure, she's curious about her biological father—the one who chose life in a motorcycle club, the Reign of Terror, over being a parent—but that doesn't mean she wants to be a part of his world. But when a reluctant visit turns to an extended summer vacation among relatives she never knew she had, one thing becomes clear: nothing is what it seems. Not the club, not her secret-keeping father and not Oz, a guy with suck-me-in blue eyes who can help her understand them both.
Oz wants one thing: to join the Reign of Terror. They're the good guys. They protect people. They're…family. And while Emily—the gorgeous and sheltered daughter of the club's most respected member—is in town, he's gonna prove it to her. So when her father asks him to keep her safe from a rival club with a score to settle, Oz knows it's his shot at his dream. What he doesn't count on is that Emily just might turn that dream upside down.
No one wants them to be together. But sometimes the right person is the one you least expect, and the road you fear the most is the one that leads you home.
This book surprised me. I liked it a lot more than I thought I would!
I’m glad I took a chance. When I read the description for this book, and saw Motorcycle gangs, I was like – eh, no thanks. Then I saw forbidden romance, and I was like – heck yeah, let’s do this.
Bad Lauren. I’m ashamed to say that this is my first McGarry book. But believe me, it’s not going to be my last. Now I know why so many readers love this author.
Real characters. All the characters in this book were complicated and felt so real. They all had their own issues to work through, and I enjoyed following them on their personal journeys.
The MCs had great chemistry. I immediately loved Emily and Oz because of the zingers they shot back-and-forth. From the moment they met, there was a lot of sexual tension, and it was agonizing waiting for them to acknowledge their strong attraction.
I’m a hungry reader. This is yet again, another book I started listening to, and then switched to reading, because I wanted to devour it quicker than the narrator allowed me to.
I plan on reading the rest of the books in this series eventually, I just don’t know when, because my TBR is huuuge. I’m sure my fellow bloggers can relate. #thestruggleisreal
