Walk The Edge by Katie McGarry
(Website, Blog, Twitter, Facebook, Goodreads)
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.
That’s all it takes to change your life.
What happens when your entire future is on the line because of one reckless moment? This is what Breanna Miller and Thomas “Razor” Turner have to face in Katie McGarry’s WALK THE EDGE. Blackmail, family secrets, future plans on the verge of collapsing, two people who aren’t supposed to be together fall in love, and the power of social media in defining who you are when you’re not even sure who that person is yet…Join the Club and and immerse yourself in the world of the Reign of Terror. Pick up WALK THE EDGE today!
Why do you do this to me, Katie McGarry? I could not put this book down. Nowhere But Here was the first book of hers that I read, and I fell in love with Oz and Emily, watching their love story unfold, and most importantly I fell in love with the Reign of Terror. It kind of sounds contradictory considering their name, but I’ve never considered, read, or heard of a motorcycle club the way McGarry presented them in the first book. Suffice to say, when the cover was revealed for Walk the Edge, I rejoiced. When a snippet was released to the world, you better believe I took a few precious moments to swoon over Razor and learn a little about Breanna Miller. I love these books—which is why I’ve already preordered my copy.
Thomas Turner, where were you when I needed help in physics? Though, let’s be honest, if Razor had been tutoring me, I would have had an even more tenuous grasp on spring constants and the formula for acceleration and how friction is added into the mix than I already did—and don’t even ask me to try an remember any of that stuff now. (I pushed it out of my mind and wrote it off as the worst decision ever.) Razor, though, kept on surprising me throughout this book. I met him in Nowhere But Here,and he had a certain je ne sais quoi that digs into your soul and makes you beg for more. I’ve always had a thing for blondes—the amount of book boyfriends that I have that are blonde is overwhelming—and I would like to know where I can find one of the Razor variety that’s not fictitious. Seriously, you guys—if Katie McGarry is basing these guys in her books off a real people, where are they at? Her male leads give me hope. Hope for an ultimate love, for someone that makes you want to be better, and that person that lets you be you because, as Dr. Seuss said, there isn’t anyone more youer than you. Hope, I think, is what got me about Razor, what made me love him so much. He had such potential and such sincerity in everything that he did. Breanna brought out a side to him that was hidden behind his icy blue eyes—and oh, those icy blues. If Razor doesn’t take a piece of your heart by the end of this book, reread it.
Breanna Miller had a humongous family. Number five of nine, right smack dab in the middle of all the craziness attached to a big family. I don’t have a big family, but I did understand Breanna because family was all she had. She had friends, but because her family did enter double digits, in order to make it out alive they had to work together and depend on each other. The familial aspect of the book added so much to her development. Not only was she the middle child, her brain separated her from those that shared her DNA. She remembered random stuff, and since preschool, her parents used her as an entertainment piece at parties. It created interesting tension between siblings, and added even more to how she fit in the small town of Snowflake. Two halves to a whole that no one would ever had imagined would fit—Breanna and Razor. Reputation is everything in a small town—good and bad. How the two were brought together kept my attention from the beginning. Because they were such a seemingly incongruous couple, I enjoyed watching them defeat the odds.
I’m ruined. The Reign of Terror has a special place in my heart. I can’t wait to read more of this series. There’s a reason I told almost everyone I saw at ApollyCon in the bookstore that they just had to buy a Katie McGarry book. Walk the Edge is a wild ride. It’s deep and captivating—prepare yourself for multiple twists and turns, with a little forbidden love to make it all the better.
