RIDE (Bayonet Scars, No. 1)
by JC Emery
Death comes in Armani. Salvation comes in leather.
Principessa to the Mancuso crime family, Alexandra knows a thing or two about living outside the bounds of the law. Suffocated by the future her father has laid out for her, she makes a choice she can’t take back, changing the entire trajectory of her life.
Thrust into the dark and dangerous world of the Forsaken Motorcycle Club for her own protection, Alex finds herself faced with the last thing she needs right now: the man of her dreams. He’s sex in leather, the devil incarnate, and one hell of a kisser. But he’s also off-limits. Ryan Stone can be her friend, but he’s forbidden to be her lover.
Third-generation Forsaken, Ryan knows nothing other than life on two wheels, and he wouldn’t have it any other way. He enjoys the many privileges that come with the patch, and the only laws he recognizes are the ones set-forth by his club. That is, until who he wants more than anything isn’t allowed on the back of his bike —or in his bed. Balancing his desire for her body, and need to keep her safe, Ryan tries to keep Alex at a distance. Finally having made a choice for herself, she’s done hearing the word “no” and will push boundaries even Ryan himself doesn’t dare cross.
Love is never more tempting than when it’s forbidden.
So, I wasn’t going to do this. It feels kind of weird being like, “Look at me!” But hey, this might never happen again. So for now, I’m going to revel in the fact that Ride is doing so well in such a short time. When I woke up this morning, Ryan & Alex’s story was just outside of the Top 500 on Amazon. By 10am, it cracked the Top 500, and then just as we neared the 24-hour mark since publication, it was at #140. And I burst into tears. I haven’t stopped crying/flailing yet.
No matter where we go from here, I won’t forget this moment. It’s beyond what I expected and hoped for. But damn if I don’t feel like the luckiest person alive. HUGE thank you to every single person who helped drive this book. Because OMFG look what you did! ❤ THANK YOU!!!
