"Are you sure you wanna do this?" He asks, his hazel eyes grazing over my tear streaked face illuminated by the moonlight.
"I've never been so sure of anything in my entire life."
"Carter, this is a big decision. Once you're in, you can never get back out."
I wipe my face deliberately as he waits for my answer. No more pain, no more bullying. Maybe this is what I need. A new beginning. A chance to start over. "I want this, Nathan. I want in." I say.
He takes me by the wrist and leads me over to his dark motorcycle. Putting his helmet on my head and strapping it under my chin, he stares into my large, brown eyes. "Everything's gonna be fine. I promise." He nods with reassurance as he tucks a curl behind my ear. Another tear escapes my eye and he quickly wipes it away. This is the most sincere Nathan has ever been with me and I feel nervous, but excited.
He takes my hands and wraps them around his toned abs before we both sputter off into the moonlight. The applewood California breeze whips my face as we speed down the motorway.
This is it.
Carter Wyatt has just been moved to sunny Pasadena, California with her single dad. After her mother's passing and her older brother's death, things just weren't the same. Starting at a new school with new friends wasn't what she would worry most about. It would be The Bikers---a school gang that just won't stay out of her way. With a handsome and dangerous gang leader and a jealous blonde Biker always on her case, school becomes a tale of sacrifice and endurance, and maybe a little romance if she's lucky. When given the opportunity of a lifetime, will she give in and become a member of one of the most feared gangs in the west or will she stay true to herself and keep out of trouble?
