Book Review: Nowhere But Here by Katie McGarry

Summary: Seventeen-year-old Emily likes her life but 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 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. And while Emily—the gorgeous and sheltered daughter of the club’s most respected member—is in town, he’s going to 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.

Thoughts: I would never have bought this book if it wasn’t given to me. That’s how big of an idiot I am! I got it for free as I was leaving Dymocks in Sydney two years ago, because they were just giving out free books. Just. Giving. Out. Free. Books! And it’s been sitting on my bookshelf gathering dust all that time until I recently picked it up and ended up finishing it in one day. I would have finished it in one sitting if I could’ve. The book was very fast paced for a romance novel, which is one of the things I loved about it. Emily is a good girl from out of town who falls in love with Oz, who is a bad boy, but also isn’t because he’s a softie at heart. I loved all the family secrets and how they all came to be revealed. I wasn’t expecting the secrets to be what they were, but they didn’t come as a big surprise either. There were some cliches and a few scenes that made me roll my eyes but still, I enjoyed reading this book and I am officially committed to the Thunder Road series. I feel like there’s lots of potential for further character development and I can’t wait to see where it goes.

Stars: 4/5
