WALK THE EDGE is the second book in the reader favorite
series by Katie McGarry. This book is all about Razor, a
member of the Reign
of Terror motorcycle club. McGarry opens up the book with a
grabbing scene between Razor and a cop. In that one scene
is able to lay down the foundation of the book while also
and intrigue. Razor's character easily became my favorite
thing about this
book. I loved his character and his backstory, and I
especially loved his
involvement with the club. If you haven't read McGarry's
then you might be in for a surprise because her clubs don't
dabble in drugs
or prostitution. They have their own set of problems that
they would rather
deal with. So I think it fits in with the Young Adult crowd
that McGarry writes
For me, the weakest part of the story is the heroine,
Breanna. At seventeen
years old, she has a lot of responsibility on her shoulders.
She is very
straight-laced and intelligent and it seemed to be a such a
direct contrast to
Razor's characters that I wondered how this romance was
going to work.
McGarry does it, however, building the chemistry until it is
a slow burn. The
problem for me was that Breanna's POVs just didn't quite
hold my attention
as much as Razor's did. I found that I would lose interest
quicker when in her
mind and I do believe that created an imbalance in the story.
Nevertheless, there is plenty more to keep you interested in
the rest of the
story. If you're a Young Adult fan and enjoy a sweet romance
with a touch of
darkness, then you'll love WALK THE EDGE.
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
