So, it’s Spring Time here in Pennsylvania (where I live) but it’s still been a bit chilly ,for some people. I thought I would write down some of my favorite books that are great reads for Spring!
Nowhere but Here – Katie McGarry
I know I talk about this book a lot, but it is just so good! I have a review for it here. All of her books are great for this time of year, but this one is my all time favorite!

So Emily goes to Kentucky to see Eli and pay her respects. While at the funeral home she meets Oz. Oz is a charming eighteen year old who wants to be apart of Eli’s motorcycle club- the Reign Of Terror- not everyone gets to be apart of this group,only the ones who become prospects or are part of the family up until they are eighteen when they choose whether they want to be apart of the club. Eli gets to spend more time with his daughter. Oz also gets to spend time with Emily also, he’s put as her guard dog to make sure no one harms her. As they spend more time together, they shift from more than friends.
