Walk the Edge by Katie McGarry
Book 2 of Thunder Road series
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: 29th March, 2016
Smart. Responsible. That’s seventeen-year-old Breanna’s role in her large family, and heaven forbid she put a toe out of line. Until one night of shockingly un-Breanna-like behavior puts her into a vicious cyber-bully’s line of fire—and brings fellow senior Thomas “Razor” Turner into her life.
Razor lives for the Reign of Terror motorcycle club, and good girls like Breanna just don’t belong. But when he learns she’s being blackmailed over a compromising picture of the two of them—a picture that turns one unexpected and beautiful moment into ugliness—he knows it’s time to step outside the rules.
And so they make a pact: he’ll help her track down her blackmailer, and in return she’ll help him seek answers to the mystery that’s haunted him—one that not even his club brothers have been willing to discuss. But the more time they spend together, the more their feelings grow. And suddenly they’re both walking the edge of discovering who they really are, what they want, and where they’re going from here.
I enjoyed Walk the Edge. I loved Razor and Breanna. They were Perfect from the very first chapters. Beanna is a high school student who has the gift or curse of remembering the most insignificant information. Like girls her age, she wants to fit into this high school world. She also is the 5th between nine children which makes her also invisible at home. Her parents’ attention is never to her unless they wanted her to take care of things. I felt really sad and heart broken for her. What saddened me more was how that d-bag Kyle was blackmailing her to write his paper. Man, that effort you put in harassing her can be put in your paper instead, he pissed me off. Breanna, seeing as her parents are never there for her, decides to confide in Razor.
Razor, aka Thomas Turner, is a broken guy after he lost his mom in a car accident. To make matters worse, a detective comes telling him his mom was murdered and it was no accident. Razor started to get suspicious of his dad and as a result he shuts off his people in the Reign of Terror club. One night he meets Breanna and asks for her help.
Both of the MCs struggles was brilliantly written. Each helped form the new versions of them. Their growth was so good to see happening. Also the slow build of romance helped a lot. No crucial moment felt rushed or out of character. It was perfect. However, I did feel it get too intense, especially where Razor’s starts to lose his cool and starts shouting, yeah I wasn’t a fan of that. I also think they both could have dealt with this Kyle problem sooner, but that’s me being practical.
