At the Other End:
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.

KATIE MCGARRY was a teenager during the age of grunge and boy bands and remembers those years as the best and worst of her life. She is a lover of music, happy endings, and reality television, and is a secret University of Kentucky basketball fan.

A heart pounding and twisting new story from Katie McGarry that will leave you swooning over and over again for Oz, and desperately trying to find out the truth with Emily. Prepare yourself, this one is steamy.

I cannot say enough how much I loved this book! It was absolutely fantastic, and Katie is definitely one of my go-to authors. This book packed the heat, and showed you the other side of Motorbike Gangs/Clubs. It basically screams, don’t judge a book on its cover (ok, I’m definitely judging because just LOOK at Oz on the cover *drools*). Nowhere But Here left mean emotional mess, practically the last half of the book made me want to cry because of the things that were happening, but, I stayed strong and made it through without crying. 

I’m going to get this out of the way. The only reason why I was let down is because I kind of predicted the truth about Meg, Eli and Jeff. Sure, it still shocked me when it all unfolded (especially some things that happened with Eli), but I wasn’t as shocked as I could have been. Oh, and I didn’t like Meg. We don’t get to see much of her, and when we do, she is overreacting and you can always tell that she is hiding something. I feel like she made Emily worse, but I do hope that we get to see more of her in the next books so that I might be able to change my mind. I still craved every word on every page, no matter that I could see it coming since the start of the book. Nowhere But Here is completely addictive like a new kind of drug. I swear, Katie must put some sort of hypnosis or some freaky shit in all her books because they are all so mucking addictive (yes, I purposely said mucking, thanks Emily). 

Oz is definitely one of my new book boyfriends. I loved every second and I really did fall for this guy as soon as he started his first chapter. No one can beat Chaol and Bran/Johnny, but... well.... Oz is up there. He is everything you would want in a book boyfriend and so much more to Emily. I adore their ship until the very end, it will sail FOREVER!!! All the sexual tension build up throughout this book left me craving for these two to finally get together. When it happened, it was explosive, when it didn’t, I was frustrated!  I’m definitely intrigued about what happens next for these two. I’ve got a feeling that they will be my fave couple in the Thunder Road series.

Alright, so next is Razor’s story. Let me just say this one thing, I NEED a story on Chevy and Violet. PLEEEASEEE!!!! Let us all beg like we begged for an Abby story in the Pushing the Limits series :D 

Everyone needs to pick up this book, it has everything in it for everyone, and shows you the real truth behind what it means to be a family. It will tear you apart and bring you soaring, but you will always find yourself coming back for more. I know I definitely will.
