Review - Walk The Edge

Review reposted after previous post was accidentally lost...!

Walk The Edge
by Katie McGarry


Walk the Edge - cover


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 cyberbully'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.

And don’t miss the first book in the Thunder Road Series,

NOWHERE BUT HERE!

 

I received a copy in exchange for an honest review!


What I say: It's no secret that I'm a big fan of biker/MC books but what I particularly like about this series is how Katie McGarry manages to combine biker life with YA fiction. I was a fan of Nowhere But Here (the first book in the Thunder Road series) and have been impatiently waiting for Walk the Edge

In this instalment we're treated to Razor's and Breanna's stories (a non-spoilery reminder) Razor is the recently 'patched' biker friend of Oz from book one, whilst Breanna is the shy girl who goes to school with him. 

As a young member of the Reign of Terror MC, Razor is the big hearted and often misjudged bad boy who parents are desperate to keep their daughters away from. He's extremely protective, determined and totally awesome! The story follows him as he's confronted by the possibility of having been betrayed by those closest to him. 

Breanna is sweet, extremely clever and devoted to her often difficult and ungrateful family. I really liked her and was desperate for her to stand up for herself and take control of her life regarding the incident and her future plans. I wasn't the biggest fan of certain members of her family but I appreciated their struggle.

Their story does heavily feature the MC and biker life, but it's central focus is really a coming of age story. It's about two very different characters as they find their place in the world. The book showcases a fab group of secondary characters (both new and old) who really help enrich the plot and set up the next story... 

4 Stars in my Sky!
