     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.
     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.  

          This book was so good. I love Oz. I love EVERY character tbh. I love how brotherhood and family is really important in this book. It's great that the book promotes blood does not define family. It really doesn't.
          The writing took some getting used to. I was pretty bored during the first part of this book. Nothing was really happening and all the characters seemed rude, weird, stuck-up, and/or obnoxious. But, they got better.
          McGarry crafts her story with such care. Readers are left wondering and left in the dark. No one knows what really happened. Readers don't know and even some of the characters. It was pretty cool that readers and characters find out things together.
          I love the setting of this book. I LOVE MOTORCYCLES! When I saw the cover with a biker guy....drools....it's bad that I'm attracted to the bad boys. But, not all bikers are terrible people. This book really conveyed that.
          These bikers are legit-as the author puts it, not exactly happy with the phrasing. They may ride motorcycles. They may drink. They may be what people in society consider scum. But, they're actually really great people.
          They don't have bar fights with each other. The sole purpose of the whole motor cycle gang was for protection and security. I really liked that. The author really changes out perspective on bikers.
