One moment of recklessness will change their worlds.
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.
Walk the Edge is a book that I was looking forward to ever since I fell in love with Nowhere But Here last year. It’s no secret that McGarry is among my favorite authors and she will always be an auto buy author for me since I can pretty much guarantee that I love anything she ever writes so I can’t say I was surprised by how much I loved this book. But, I think with every book I read by McGarry, I fall in love a little more. Her writing just draws me in, and her characters make me fall in love with them within moments of meeting them. With every new book I always say that it’s my new favorite McGarry book, so without further ado, WALK THE EDGE IS MY NEW FAVORITE. At least until the next one comes out HAHA.
Razor and Breanna’s story both broke my heart in different ways. Breanna is super smart and she comes from a big family. She’s right in the middle so everything seems to fall on her shoulders. I loved how she was with her younger siblings, but I absolutely HATED how her older siblings treated her. While I loved Breanna as an overall character, it broke my heart how she was afraid to be herself and how she wouldn’t stand up for herself. Enter Razor. As bad as everyone thinks he is just because he’s part of an MC, they are so completely wrong. I loved getting to know the guy under the cut, and he surprised me with how amazingly caring he was. Razor is the type that tough around the edges, but he has this huge heart underneath all the leather and it was such a great experience to see that.
I’m sure to the outside world, Razor and Breanna seem like an unlikely couple, but to see them together and to witness their relationship grow? Perfection. They really bring out the best in each other and I loved watching their relationship go from attraction to something meaningful.
Of course with this being a book about a motorcycle club, there was a ton of action, suspense, betrayal and puzzles to piece together. Add all of those things in with the slow burning romance and characters you can’t help but to love, that makes it one HELL of a book. The Thunder Road series is among my favorites and I can’t wait to see what’s next for the Reign of Terror.
