As the only daughter of the Knights MC President, Grace Jackson was raised in the life. Her pop would keep her in a protective bubble if he had his way, and her job is less than a dream, but she loves her life and the small town of Hawthorne where she was raised.
The moment Ruston King, president of the Royal Bloods, sets eyes on Grace, he’s determined to make the club princess his queen. But first, he’ll need to convince her that he’s worth giving up everything for.
When danger strikes, Ruston will need to prove he can protect more than just her heart.
This is the story of Ruston and Grace, the fifth installment in the Ride Series Second Generation.

Fans of Megan O'Brien have been eagerly awaiting Grace's book ever since the Ride Series, 2nd generation books began. And I can definitely say that she was worth the wait. Grace, the 5th book in the 2nd generation series, brings to an end books about the Knights MC and that is very bittersweet. I am not ready to say goodbye to this family. But what's great about this book is that it crosses over to a new MC family, that of Ruston King's. We are left with the enticing promise of more books to come, in a new town - so I think I can be satisfied with that. But it is definitely hard to say goodbye.
In Grace, we pick up where we left off in the last book, where Grace and Ruston meet in that swoonworthy let-me-buy-a-cup-of-Ruston way. It's basically love at first sight for both characters, even though Grace doesn't really understand it. And when Ruston is injured and ends up in the hospital, it is Grace who spends her nights in a chair by his bed, even though he is a relative stranger. This does not go unnoticed by Ruston, or his family. Grace has basically signed her fate - she is Ruston's. Now he just has to convince her to give up everything she knows and start over in a new town, with him.
Seeing Grace find love was so great. There was never a more deserving character. And Ruston is perfect for her and loves her just the way she is. Not once does he complain about her being a tiny bit high maintenance (only in the requiring a huge closet kind of way). Grace also comes into her own. She is meant to be a queen, not merely an MC princess. While I was sad not to see more of past couples from the series, I really thought this book was a great way to transition to the new series and the new group of people we are sure to fall in love with. I loved Grace's book and I love this entire series and I know I will love what is coming next from Ms. O'Brien. I can't wait - it is sure to be a wild ride.
I received a free copy of this book from Give Me Books PR and am voluntarily leaving an honest review.
