Nowhere But Here (Thunder Road #1) by Katie McGarry: Respect the Rules Tour


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.

7. No violence is tolerated between Club members.

Razor’s eyes glaze over and he’s a bull seeing red. His arm swings back with a ready-made fist. Not noticing how Razor just lost his shit, Chevy slips between us. I grab Chevy and toss him to the side and yell, “Chevy said touchdown.”

Razor blinks, and the horror mirrored there as he realizes he was two seconds from pile driving me and Chevy causes me to ache for my longtime friend. ~ Oz, NOWHERE BUT HERE

One of the first things I learned when I spent time with a local motorcycle club while researching NOWHERE BUT HERE was that the club is a brotherhood. It’s comprised of men who love and respect one another. One of the rules I respected the most is that members weren’t allowed to hurt other members. It shows truly that this club looks upon itself as family.

In the Reign of Terror, the fictional motorcycle club main character Oz wants to join in NOWHERE BUT HERE, violence amongst each other isn’t tolerated and it is highly discouraged outside the club as well. That’s why Oz keeps a close eye on his good friend Razor, a club member who’s battling demons due to his past and who often loses his way. Oz loves Razor as a brother and is always there to try to pull him back from falling over the edge. One of those things he pulls him back from is breaking the rule of hurting a fellow club member.
