Blog Tour/Author Playlist/Giveaway : Walk The Edge by Katie McGarry
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.
KATIE MCGARRY’S PLAYLIST:
I love music! I am highly inspired by it and one of my favorite things after finishing a book is to create a playlist. Walk the Edge was no exception.
“Rewind” by Rascal Flatts and “Night Train” by Jason Aldean—Both of these songs were highly influential when I wrote the scene where Razor and Breanna cross the old train trestle (scene from the cover of the book) and eventually kiss.
“T-R-O-U-B-L-E” by Travis Tritt—I danced to this song when I was much, much younger with an army boy at a bar that was much like the one I described in Walk the Edge. For one moment, Breanna lets go, dances, has some fun and the moment her eyes lock with Razor’s at the bar they are both headed for trouble.
“Blank Space” by I Prevail—The first time I heard this song was from Taylor Swift and I immediately thought of Razor. “Blank Space” describes him perfectly, but then I heard the harder edged version by I Prevail and I fell completely in love. Not only does this version have the rough feeling of Razor, I also think that the main singer sounds like Razor as well.
“Reflection” by Christina Aguilera—Breanna says in Walk the Edge, “The boy everyone sees, but nobody knows is with the girl who everybody knows, but nobody sees.” This song describes this feeling.
“Ghost” by Ella Henderson—There is a secret that Razor’s father and the motorcycle club is hiding from Razor and it’s a secret that involves his mother’s death. His mother is like a ghost in the story, riding Razor hard, and he can’t find peace until he discovers the truth.
KATIE MCGARRY was a teenager during the age of grunge and boy bands and remembers those years as the best and worst of her life. She is a lover of music, happy endings, and reality television, and is a secret University of Kentucky basketball fan.
