Review: 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.
This book was a nice read but it didn’t captivate and enthrall me like Nowhere But Here (Book 1 of the Thunder Road Series) did. I liked the story but I found my hatred for Breanna’s family really out-shadowed my love of the story. They are just terrible, selfish, *ss holes, all 10 of them! By page 54, I loathed them and even though they attempted to be better people toward the end of the book, I still felt they all deserved a swift punch in the face…especially her parents.
Moving on, lets talk about Breanna and Razor, I sorta loved their dynamic relationship. Their banter was adorable as were their moments of secret kisses. There was just a little too much drama in this book and not enough motorcycling. I wanted more bike rides and club action but what I got was Razor going through a journey of self-discovery and Breanna having an identity crisis. It wasn’t bad but just not what I wanted.
This book is filled with family drama, bullying, blackmail, and mental health issues. For me, personally, I didn’t particularly care for these things. I wanted more of the club life and the club atmosphere. I wanted stolen kisses on motorcycle rides. While I enjoyed the read, I was also feeling like their was just a little too much going on and that for me really took away from the relationship forming between Breanna and Razor…
