Title: Ride
Series: Bayonet Scars, #1
Author: J.C. Emery
Rating: 2 Shooting Stars

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.

Ride begins with us getting know a little bit about Alex's life with her father. He is the mob boss, and she his is daughter. She has to do everything she's told including marrying the man her father chooses to take over the business. But when she ends up witnessing something she shouldn't and telling someone something she shouldn't things go from bad to worse for her. Now she's on the run from her so called family. She gets thrown into a whole new world that isn't much different from the last. Except these bikers actually care about her. Now she's trying to start over, and enjoy a new life. But there is still a problem of she wants to be with Ryan who wants nothing to do with her. 

 I'm not really impressed with this book. I thought it was interesting at first but then I felt like the characters didn't really change much. I couldn't connect with any of them. And I really hated Ryan. To me the things he did to Alex were unforgivable. I couldn't believe that crap he pulled. And then I felt like the ending didn't really explain enough. I mean nothing was really answered at all. So now I'm a little frustrated with that. I don't think I will be continuing the series.
