    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'm in complete awe with how Katie McGarry continues to write stories that touch my heart. Her books are some of my favorites, and I don't think you can have too many favorite books and I'm happy to add Walk The Edge to that ever-growing list. 

What I liked about Walk the Edge:
  • Defining the meaning of family - sometimes you have to seek out your family and sometimes they find you
  •  The importance of relying on other people, depending on other people. You can't solve your problems all on you own and it's ok to take a chance and trust that there are others who are on your side. There is strength in that.
  • The love and openness between Razor and Breanna - all of their feelings were new and overwhelming and exciting and they didn't shy away from it. It was a joy to experience them falling in love with eachother
  • How McGarry explores a complicated relationship Breanna has with her sister, Clara. It is more that just sibling rivalry. 

Memorable Quotes:

"I'll tell you what," he continues. "If you want wild -- if you want a kiss that breaks the rules, I'll give you one, but not here, not now." - Razor is smooth. And oh, the promise of what's to come!

"No, I'm saying that I'm not okay with hurting people even if they've hurt me." - Breanna knows pain and knows that inflicting it on others isn't going to make her feel better. This is just one of the many reason to love her.

"The pressure of her delicate fingers us heavier than most weights I've lifted. It's like holding on to a promise and it causes me to be nervous." - Razor's connection to Breanna and here you can tell that she's someone who is important to him.

As easy it is to fall for Razor and Oz with their heart-stopping, swoon-worthiness, it's just as easy to fall for and admire the girls. They are fierce and filled with strength and courage and compassion. And passion. I've loved getting to know Breanna and am so glad that Emily from Nowhere But Here made a reappearance. And Violet - I'm just itching to get to know her story. 

I loved Walk the Edge. I'm invested in the characters and their stories and want more. Always more.
