Seventeen-year-old Violet has always been expected to sit back and let the boys do all the saving.

It’s the code her father, a member of the Reign of Terror motorcycle club, raised her to live by. Yet when her dad is killed carrying out Terror business, Violet knows it’s up to her to do the saving. To protect herself, and her vulnerable younger brother, she needs to cut all ties with the club—including Chevy, the boy she’s known and loved her whole life.

But when a rival club comes after Violet, exposing old secrets and making new threats, she’s forced to question what she thought she knew about her father, the Reign of Terror, and what she thinks she wants. Which means re-evaluating everything: love, family, friends . . . and forgiveness.

Caught in the crosshairs between loyalty and freedom, Violet must decide whether old friends can be trusted—and if she’s strong enough to be the one person to save them all.
I've been excited for Violet and Chevy's story since book one of the Thunder Road series and their role as side characters. I think I got suckered in to requesting this Netgalley ARC thinking it was the full book....only to be accepted and then realize it was just a brief sampler. Due to that, I put it off for several  (five) months before beginning to read it.

Violet is the daughter of a Reign of Terror motorcycle club member who was killed. Ever since his death she has been convinced that the club is the reason he died and she wants nothing to do with it, or with her now ex-boyfriend, Chevy, who at 18 will become a prospect and eventually patch in to the club as well. It's not a life she wants for herself, her mom or her brother. She does everything she can to avoid the Reign of Terror, even though her heart still loves Chevy.

One night her car breaks down and she and her brother are stranded alone to figure out who to call to help them. None other than Chevy drives up on his motorcycle. Before Chevy can do much to help her, a rival club called The Riot, come driving up, and through force, kidnap both Chevy and Violet. The Riot is involved in illegal activity and don't have any morals when it comes to the treatment of them. Locked in a dark room with no way out, Violet only has Chevy to depend on for safety...however their safety is an illusion because she knows, even though he promises he will do what he can to protect her, that they are in a very dangerous situation.

63 pages is so short....but the purpose of the sampler or teaser is to get the reader excited about the book and it's release date so that they will purchase it to read more. In this aspect this sampler hits a home run! It made me anxious and nervous for what's to come! Especially with the killer cliffhanger of a gun going off. Thankfully I had access to the full book to dive right in to.
