Ride by JC Emery Blog Tour and Giveaway

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.

As a child, JC was fascinated by things that went bump in the night. As they say, some things never change. Now, as an adult, she divides her time between the sexy law men, mythical creatures, and kick-ass heroines that live inside her head and pursuing her bachelor's degree in English. JC is a San Francisco Bay Area native, but has also called both Texas and Louisiana home. These days she rocks her flip flops year round in Northern California and can't imagine a climate more beautiful.

JC writes adult, new adult, and young adult fiction. She dabbles in many different genres including science fiction, horror, chick lit, and murder mysteries, yet she is most enthralled by supernatural stories-- and everything has at least a splash of romance.

My 4.5 STAR Review
I was drawn to this book because of it's mob and biker gang story-line.  The two combined were intriguing.  I was curious on how this story would go.  A mob boss's daughter... defecting to a motorcycle gang to stay safe from her own family.
First, I was enthralled with the plot... The Alex's family was interesting.  Her relationship with them was perfect for this story-line.  She loved her family, but being the girl of the family, she was always more in the shadows than the forefront.  Her father is an old-fashioned Italian mob man.  Alex wants to be a modern day girl.  She wants to get out and live.  She wants to fall in love.  However, that is not the life she is afforded.  Her dad has other plans for her.  Marrying into the mob, officially, is what he plans for her life.  His belief is a woman is to know her place.  Alex, well, knows her place, but doesn't know it one bit.
Things go awry.  Trust is broken between Alex and her family... well her dad, brother and cousin.  Alex is now forced into hiding from her own family.  She is scared and confused.  She thought she made the right decision.  That decision, instead of helping her family, has put her life on the line... she now fears her own family may want her life.
Alex felt like an outcast in her own home.  Now she is thrust into a new world, where she feels just as out of place.  She slowly starts to learn that embracing a life you didn't know could exist can free your inner soul.
Enter Ryan.  These two are drawn together, but know the rules.  They are off-limits to one another.  This makes them want each other even more.  They both struggle, for the same and different reason, to stay away.  As they slowly form a bond, things start to get intense.  Their newly found friendship could cost them both important things.  It could also cost them both their lives.
This story is an emotional roller coaster.  I was so glad to be on this ride.  J.C. did a fantastic job in going from one scenario to the next.  Her ability to portray the characters' feelings and actions is remarkable.  Their interactions are very convincing and realistic.  The twists and turns in the plot can someone been foreseen, if paying enough attention, but shocking nonetheless.  As things start to really come to a head, many life changing secrets have been revealed, and Alex's family has come for her.... And, that folks, is where the book ends... 
I am highly recommending this book to anyone who likes to read... no matter what you like to read.  This is a wonderful book.  I cannot wait to read the next book.  I need to know what happens next.... I have a feeling I may need a tissue or two!!!
