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.
I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.
Walk the Edge is a poignant, delightful and thrilling novel that will grab the readers attention right from the start.
Breanna is a very responsible, down-to-earth girl who starts getting blackmailed and she has no idea how to stop this without facing the consequences. Bre’s life at home is already hell and now add to that a blackmail that she cannot handle. My only issue with this story was Bre’s family. Her family’s exasperating! They would neglect her except for when they needed something and even then, they wouldn’t ask nicely! I debated lowering the rating I gave this book because of this irritating family. They got on my nerves and they riled me up. Their treatment for their daughter/sibling was horrendous. I mean, the parents should be the responsible ones and yet they dump everything on Breanna and don’t even help her or defend her against her siblings. I know it’s wrong but if I could kill all of that family, I would in a heartbeat.
Everyone says the same thing: Breanna’s smart, she’s quiet. On the inside, I’m not at all quiet. Most of the time, I’m screaming.
Razor is one of the members of the Terror motorcycle club. He’s a very reserved person and only really talks when needed. For Razor to help out Breanna is a huge step for him and he’s even surprised he offered. In return for Razor’s kindness, Breanna sets out to find out what really happened to a family member of his because not even the club he belongs to has talked about it. They find solace in one another and together they go on a journey to figure out what to do with this whole mess.
There’s an edginess inside me. something stirring like a cold front on the verge of colliding with warm air. Too many demons are hovering near me and the one thing that can release the pressure is a good fight.
Nowhere But Here was my first Katie McGarry’s novel and it was a huge success. I was left wanting to know about Razor and I was surprised to have gotten access to this second book in the series. I enjoyed it so much. Razor and Breanna were so charming and kind of hilarious at times, especially when they met. We have Breanna who’s prejudiced by who Razor is and Razor doesn’t know if he should open up to Breanna or not. As the story goes on, both characters start to rely on each other and slowly start to form a relationship, which was slow and sweet.
Breanna transports me to all sorts of new places. It’s not her physical proximity getting to me, it’s the fact that she makes me feel.
The plot had me on edge! My heart was racing as I kept reading and I had no idea what would happen to Breanna and Razor. The blackmail reached a new level and I was gripping my kindle wanting to know where the story would go and if it would be satisfying at the end. Let me tell you it totally was! My heart broke for a few minutes and I was about to start yelling when the story took a different turn and it made me happy. The ending was ultimately gratifying and the author ended the story very nicely.
The boy everyone sees but nobody knows is with the girl who everybody knows but nobody sees.
