Release Week Blitz: "Nowhere But Here" by Katie McGarry

Buongiorno, cari lettori! ^^
Oggi vi porto a fare un giretto sulla moto di Oz! Chi è Oz? Beh, ma che domande sono? Oz è il protagonista maschile del nuovo romanzo di Katie McGarry, autrice della serie young adult Pushing the Limits (che io adoro follemente). Oggi è il giorno dell'uscita americana del primo libro della nuova serie Thunder Road e ho l'immenso onore di partecipare al Release Week Blitz del romanzo! *batte le manine eccitata*
Devo dire che ho atteso con impazienza questa uscita, non solo perché si tratta del libro di una delle mie autrici preferite, ma anche perché la trama è davvero accattivante e mi ricorda, in modo vago, la serie Fast & Furious, per quanto riguarda il rispetto che vige all'interno del club Il Regno del Terrore, un po' come quello tra i membri della grande famiglia di Dominic Toretto, insomma :P
 Katie McGarry è, per me, una garanzia, adoro le sue storie, sono così vere e talmente profonde che non potrei rinunciarvi per nulla al mondo.

In questo romanzo la protagonista è la diciassettenne Emily che ha una vita serena e non ha nulla di cui lamentarsi, ma è curiosa di conoscere il padre biologico, un uomo che ha scelto la vita del club motociclistico. Si ritroverà a dover trascorrere con lui un'intera estate e scoprirà come questo mondo sia totalmente lontano dal suo ma anche imprevedibile, un mondo dove nulla è ciò che sembra. Qui farà anche la conoscenza di Oz, che vuole entrare a far parte del club. Sono tutti bravi ragazzi, si proteggono, sono una famiglia. Quando il padre chiede a Oz di proteggerla da un club rivale con cui ha un conto in sospeso, per lui sarà l'occasione di arrivare a raggiungere il suo sogno. Eppure, proprio quel sogno potrebbe capovolgersi per colpa di Emily... Nessuno vuole che stiano insieme, ma a volte la persona giusta è quella che meno di aspetti!

 Una storia mozzafiato e indimenticabile quella che ci racconta Katie McGarry, vi consiglio di non lasciarvi scappare questo libro. Io non lo farò di certo!

Il Blitz è fantastico e prevede, oltre la presentazione del romanzo, anche il bellissimo booktrailer, un estratto, due teaser-card e un Giveaway (US/Canada Only) con in palio 2 copie autografate di Nowhere But Here e 2 T-shirt!! 
Ringrazio InkSlingerPR e Harlequin Teen per l'opportunità di partecipare a questo meraviglioso evento. E un grazie anche a Katie McGarry che in questi giorni mi ha inviato un segnalibro di Nowhere But Here e qualche autografo *-* You're the best!

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.

BOOKTRAILER



EXCERPT

From Oz's Point of View. Set up: Emily has been separated from her parents and after a long night of worrying, her emotions and exhaustion catch up to her and it causes Oz to have his first fluttering of emotion for Emily. 

WIND BLOWS IN FROM THE NORTH AND A FEW pieces of Emily’s dark hair sweep across her face. One min­ute Emily’s a bright flame, then a gust snuffs out her light. Her body sways like a top at the tail end of a spin and I lunge forward.
Emily’s knees give out and her eyes roll back into her head. I catch her inches before she crashes onto the porch. She’s light as I swing her into my arms and her head circles onto my shoulder, reminding me of one of those rag dolls Violet used to play with when we were kids.
“Emily!” Eli’s on top of me, attempting to yank her out of my arms. “Open your eyes.”
Her eyelids flutter, but remain closed as her hand limply clutches my shirt. Eli rams his arms underneath mine and he makes Emily a rope in a tug-of-war. I should let her go. I should want to let her go, but then Emily goes and screws it up for me. “Oz.” 
It was a damn whisper, but I heard my name on her lips and so did Eli. His eyes flash to mine and Cyrus’s words repeat in my mind. That girl trusts you. And screw us both for that.
“She’s exhausted,” I say. “Hasn’t slept at all tonight.”
Eli’s expression hardens as he glares at me. I’ve seen Eli throw a coma-inducing punch for less defiance and I readjust the sleeping girl in my arms. A reminder if he decks me now, he’ll be putting his daughter at risk.
Temporarily surrendering, Eli cups Emily’s face in his hands and angles her toward him. “Emily, please open your eyes.”
She does. It’s barely a crack and they’re completely glazed.
“Everything’s going to be okay,” Eli affirms.
“I want my mom and dad,” she mumbles.
“You’ll see them tomorrow.” Eli pushes a strand of hair from her cheek. “You’re safe here. I promise.”
She rejects Eli by curling into me. Her head fits perfectly in the crook of my neck and I loathe the wave of protective­ness that rumbles through my body. Emily’s fingers tighten their grip near my shoulders and the impulse is to shield her from the guys gawking at this intimate scene. Yeah, this is club business, but Emily never asked for any of this.
