Description-

  • 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 into 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.

    Look for Katie McGarry's latest poignant and thrilling title in her Thunder Road series, Walk the Edge.

Excerpts-

  • From the book

    Emily

    TOP THREE AWFUL MOMENTS OF MY LIFE:

    Meeting my biological father at ten Breaking my arm in three spots at nine Falling into a hole and being trapped there overnight with a dead body at eight Other than that, I love my life. While some of my friends are all, "Woe is me, no one understands my traumatized soul," I'm pretty happy. I like happy. I like simple. I like predictable and I hate surprises.

    With that said, I'm not particularly thrilled when my father tries to hand me a piece of paper that causes my mother to choke up and excuse herself from the kitchen.

    Dad and I continue to stare at one another as we listen to Mom race up the stairs then close the door to their bedroom. Life is out of whack and it's easy to tell. Dirty dishes are piled in the sink. A stack of unopened mail is tossed across the island. A pile of balled tissues creates a mountain on the wooden oval table. The yellow kitchen that seemed cheery this morning is darkened with emotional storm clouds.

    The awkward silence between me and Dad has officially stretched into painful. I shift under the strain and my foot nudges my backpack on the floor.

    "You should go after her," I say to break the stillness and to ignore the fact I haven't accepted what Dad is offering. Plus, Dad always knows how to pull Mom out of her drama pit. It's one of the million things I love about him.

    "I will." His lips lift a little, a strong indication he's planning to mess with me. "How do you want to handle this? Straightforward, gradual introduction, or head in the sand?"

    I brighten. "Head in the sand works well for me."

    "Good try, but pick another option."

    Fine. "Gradual."

    "How does it feel to be a senior?"

    Despite the impending knowledge that my life is about to suck, I smile. I'd walked into the kitchen after my last day of school expecting to gush to Mom about how Trisha and I were invited to Blake Harris's party tonight.

    What I didn't expect? Dad home, Mom in tears and a note that possibly brings tidings from hell. "It feels awesome. It'll feel even better if you put that piece of paper in the garbage disposal."

    "Please read it," Dad presses. "It was hard for your mom to make the decision to let you see this and we should respect her wishes."

    My stomach aches as if I'd been elbowed. This debilitating reaction from my mother means one thing: contact from her childhood home in Kentucky.

    Kentucky is a painful subject for her and there's nothing I wouldn't do to ease her suffering because, until Dad came into the picture and adopted me when I was five, Mom raised me on her own. That deserves some major respect.

    Out of the corner of my eye I take in the collage of framed photos on the wall. The middle picture is my favorite. It's an eight by ten of the day Mom and Dad married. Mom's in a white wedding gown. Slender. Graceful. Her sleek blond hair falling around her shoulders as she beams down at me. Dad crouches beside me. His sun-kissed hair strikingly gold compared to his black tux.

    He tucks a rose into my dark brown hair. I'm five and focused on him like he's Superman. That's because he is. My own personal superhero. He adopted me mere days before he married my mom.

    Dad clears his throat and I snatch the paper from his hands with just the right amount of ticked off. I'll wander down this dark tunnel of insanity for a few minutes...for him and my mom.

    It's an e-mail and it's short and to the point and it's from my biological father.

    Jeff, Please tell Emily. Eli Underneath the message are an...

Reviews-

  • Publisher's Weekly

    April 27, 2015
    Launching the Thunder Road series, McGarry (Breaking the Rules) takes her signature brand of dramatic YA romances to the edgy world of motorcycle clubs. Seventeen-year-old Emily barely knows her biological father until circumstances force her to spend the summer with him in the small town of Snowflake, Ky. There, she becomes immersed in biker culture—her father is a high-ranking member of the Reign of Terror, a club that claims to emphasize family and legitimacy over crime and violence. As things heat up with a rival group, Emily is assigned protection: Oz, a sexy guy who has long dreamed of joining the Reign. If he keeps Emily out of trouble, he's in. Opposites attract, and steamy chemistry overrides common sense, leading to an illicit romance that won't end well if their parents find out. The core relationship sizzles and sparks with every glance and touch, and the underlying plot is solid. However, much of the story revolves around the deliberate and frustrating withholding of vital information from a clueless Emily, instead of straightforward answers. Ages 14–up. Agent: Kevan Lyon, Marsal Lyon Literary Agency.

    Gr 9 Up-Emily's world is just the way she thinks she wants it to be...calm, normal, and filled with the love of her mother and stepfather. She denies an interest in Eli's world, her biological father, who is an important member of the Reign of Terror motorcycle gang. While she does seem to have some questions about Eli, Emily doesn't want to explore her dad's world in any depth. When her parents tell her she will be attending Eli's mother's wake, she is not thrilled, but agrees to go. There, she is thrown into a world of feuding motorcycle gangs, family secrets, and complicated feelings for a young man named Oz. One quick visit turns into an extended trip as the teen tries to unravel the mysteries of her parents' pasts, learning her place in two communities, and investigating her growing feelings for Oz. Emily starts to discover there may be more to life than her protected version. McGarry adeptly splits the narrative between the two protagonists and creates a story that readers will not want to put down. VERDICT This novel will be enjoyed by teens looking for a romantic and thrilling escape.-Jessica Strefling, Pepperdine School of Law Library, CA
