    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.

I feel like I am among the 1% of Americans (probably 1% of humans) who does not like Sons of Anarchy. I know this show is responsible for a lot of the motorcycle club books that have come out recently. I have strategically avoided them up until know, but there was just something about Katie McGarry's Young Adult MC books that drew me in. I started with Nowhere But Here and found it to be quite enjoyable. I was immediately invested in the lives of the secondary characters and so was greatly excited to see that this next book was about Razor.

Since the synopsis is right above here, I'll attempt to review while avoiding summarizing. I want to start by saying that Katie writes with an incredible depth of emotion. She captures the intensity of young love, the desperation and passion that accompany the "life-or-death" feelings that are intimately joined with the young. The Thunder Road series carries an extra element of bad boys and real physical danger to lure readers along on this adventure.

Razor and Breanna seem to be extreme opposites at first, but as we see them interact we notice that they are not that different after all. The bring out the best in each other and fill in where the other is lacking.

Breanna sees something in Razor that even his closest friends, his "brothers" cannot. She believes in him and trusts him in ways that his family never has.

Razor is awed by Breanna and her intelligence. Where others see her as some sort of freak, Razor is humbled by her whit and ability. The way these two compliment each other is exactly as love should be.

Throughout the series, there are real threats and dangers that hound our heroes and their friends. Each book is fraught with action and and suspense, a delicious balance to the romance and friendship and overall sense of family. A truly great read.

5 out of 5 Stars
