Thrash (Bayonet Scars, #2) by JC Emery (Guest Post/Giveaway)

We have author JC Emery joining us now with her Bayonet Scars series. I enjoyed the first book, Ride, and am looking forward to the new release in the series, Thrash!

Ten Things I Bet You Didn’t Know about the Bayonet Scars series

1. The history of the club: The Forsaken Motorcycle Club was founded in late 1946 after the end of World War II when US soldiers returned home and found themselves unable to deal with the normality of their world. A group of six soldiers retreated to the wilds of Nevada where they eventually formed the club a few months later. By 1950, Forsaken had four charters and thirty-two members across three states: Nevada, California, and Arizona.
The “mother charter” as it’s called is now the home of most of the “retired” club members who are too old to do much of anything but bitch, including Rage—Ryan’s grandfather and Jim’s father. Forsaken now operates in the following states: Nevada, California, Arizona, New Mexico, Oregon, Illinois, Michigan, Pennsylvania, Mississippi, Georgia, and Florida.
Forsaken is the largest grower, distributor, and transporter of marijuana on the west coast with distribution to four states with the Fort Bragg charter being in charge of the primary growth and overseeing the distribution of the goods.
Rage, Ryan’s grandfather, was the second president of the Fort Bragg charter until his “retirement” to Nevada. He was also the 31st member of the club, having patched in in 1949.

2. Ryan’s favorite cartoon is Wyle E. Coyote and the Roadrunner. He once shot a TV because he wanted to catch the roadrunner just once.

3. Duke doesn’t know who his dad is, but Ruby and Jim do. He’s a member of the Mississippi Forsaken. If either thought the man would be any good for Duke, they’d tell him.

4. Rage may be old and mean, and Jim and Ryan may both be a pain in the ass, but the only actual person any of the members fear is Ian.

5. Duke’s real name is Joshua Wilcox. In high school, he ended up with the nickname “Josh Will Suck Cocks”.

6. Jeremy (Nic’s brother) visits the clubhouse about once a week—and Nic has no idea.

7. Diesel once won a gaming competition when he was in high school.

8. Grady knows all of the words to every song in Tangled (his daughter’s favorite movie).

9. Nic’s full name is Nicole Robin Whelan

10. Chief’s daughter, Elle, rides a Harley and will make a strong impression on our dear Grady in the near future

(Bayonet Scars #2)
by J.C. Emery 
Loneliness suffocates the heart. Acceptance breaks down walls.
As a Lost Girl to the Forsaken Motorcycle Club, Nicole Whelan knows how to party. She’s not cut-out for relationships and her life is way too complicated for anything more than casual encounters. But one night when she falls into Duke’s bed at the clubhouse, he sees something in her that he can’t let go of—no matter how many times she tries to run.
Having been left to raise her teenage brother, Jeremy, she’s already got her hands full and isn’t looking for anymore complications. But Duke’s just watched his best friend fall for the only girl he couldn't have, and then lose her so shortly after, shaking him to his core. Faced with his own loneliness, he’s more determined than ever to break down Nic’s walls and show her that he can be good for her; but he’s got a bad track record and she’s got a bad temper. Changing his ways isn’t easy when he’s not sure what he’s even changing for.
The violence and turmoil are at an all-time high, and Forsaken is in a vulnerable place when a twist of fate breathes new life into the club. It’s a much-needed beacon of hope for the embattled biker family, even if everyone’s not exactly on board. With Duke and Nic’s relationship already on shaky ground, and something even more important at stake, the Forsaken Motorcycle Club will fight like hell to keep their family together and whole.
Love is never more precious than when it’s new.

JC Emery Bio:
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.
