Book

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.

1) Best Part of this Book?

I was excited to read a new series by McGarry, I loved all of the characters in Pushing the Limits and I couldn’t wait to see new characters and see what could be done with them. The best part of this book was the new world, it was a community and I see exactly where McGarry can pick up all kinds of new characters for this series. This is such a wonderful world and I want to see it developed down the road.

2) Favorite character?

I really adored and loved Olivia. She was such a wonderful character that was so beautifully fleshed out. It was also a side character that really stuck out to me. I loved so many of the side characters in this series and that makes me so excited to go forward with it.

3) Worst part of this book?

I feel like this book was so fleshed out. That it was so well developed that nothing really stuck out to me as bad. I enjoyed the fact the club is legal, and how that is dealt with both within and without the club. Especially Emily’s Dad.

4) Favorite Quote?

Emily hops up on a stool and props her elbows on the bar. “You wear the crazy crown. For real, who carries a knife and, seriously? Who walks in with a bra on and is okay leaving without one? Those things are expensive.”

5) Was it what’s expected?

Not exactly. I expected this to be an illegal club, I’m glad that it wasn’t, I liked how it worked within the world and the story. Overall I was just really happy with this book. I can’t wait to dig into the next one because Razor seems like such an interesting character.

I do also want to go off topic just a bit, but as someone who has an adopted sister, I loved the way that Emily’s adoption with her Dad was handled, it was handled so well and I’ve seen adoption go badly in books. This was so great and I thank McGarry for it.

 

Pickup

 

If you aren’t sure about starting with McGarry’s books since there’s four in the other series you can absolutely start here, it doesn’t go off her old books at all and it’s really fresh and different.
