Nowhere But Here by Katie McGarry
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Emily has a good life. Her parents are there for her; she has good friends and attends a safe school. The only weird thing about her life is the secret about her biological father. When he found out that Emily’s mother was pregnant, he chose his motorcycle club over them … or at least that is what she has been told for the past 17 years. After an impromptu visit to her grandmother’s wake turns into an unexpected summer vacation, she learns more about her biological family than she thought was possible.
Oz wants nothing more than to join the Reign of Terror motorcycle club. He has grown up in the wings of the club and knows about all of the good they do for each other and the community. His chance to join is derailed when Emily walks into his life. Now he must re-earn the trust of the club members and hopefully get his chance to earn his patch.
Nowhere But Here is the first book in the Thunder Road series. Readers who have enjoyed McGarry’s good girl/bad boy love stories will not be disappointed in this storyline. I can safely assume that most readers do not know about the inner workings of a motorcycle club, but even if you are the exception to that rule … this book is still great. The story is told in the alternating voices of Emily and Oz. Although it takes some practice to pay attention to the character shift, it isn’t distracting in the least. I will be looking for the next book, Walk the Edge, to add to my TBR list.
