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.

Respect the Rules. Respect the Club. 

4. There’s no disrupting Church. 

Church, for the club, is a reverent room. It doesn’t contain pictures of dead saints or candles in red glasses, and there’s no cross nailed to an altar. What is hammered into the wall is a huge black banner with a skull in the dead center, fire dripping from the sky and flames blazing out of the eyes. The white words Reign of Terror race across the top. ~ Oz’s Point of View from NOWHERE BUT HERE 

Church, for motorcycle clubs, is the equivalent of an executive board room in the corporate world. It’s where the board of the club meets to discuss club business and vote on matters that involves their chapter. It’s a reverent place. Not a room that people enter into without permission and, if the board is in church (meaning they are in session), then nobody interrupts. 

Unfortunately, Oz makes a mistake on his first assignment with the board and is called in to church to face the consequences for his actions...and it’s there that he gets his first taste of just how emotionally heavy church can be.
