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.

Editorial Reviews

VOYA, June 2016 (Vol. 39, No. 2) - Geri Diorio
The bad boy with a heart of gold meets the good girl with a secret side—while McGarry may be treading familiar romance waters, she invests enough individuality into her characters to keep things interesting. Thomas (or Razor) loves his motorcycle club family, but he is angry and questioning its involvement in his mother’s death eight years ago. He is also loyal and very smart when it comes to math and computers. Breanna is the middle child in a family of nine. She is quiet, responsible, and after years of feeling invisible, determined to be noticed. A (semi) wild night of dancing leads to a misleading photo of her with Razor that is used to cyberbully her. Razor and Breanna team up to stop her bully and figure out what happened to Razor’s mom. Sparks fly, and romance ensues. McGarry’s descriptions of people, places, and emotions are in-depth. This can slow down the story’s pace, but it does allow for great immersion into the tale. At the same time, some of the descriptions of Razor’s computer hacking read as not fully researched, and Breanna’s tremendous intelligence is described as “freak of nature brain activity”—not the kindest or most correct way of describing someone with different intelligence. Fans of McGarry’s previous Thunder Road novel Nowhere But Here (Harlequin Teen, 2015) will enjoy characters from that book making appearances here, and romance fans will find a lot to swoon over. Reviewer: Geri Diorio; Ages 15 to 18.

Gr 9 Up—Breanna is the smart, quiet, and weird girl. Her daily goal is to remain invisible. With a large family who sees her more as an annoying parent than a sibling, and classmates who view her as a freak, Breanna just wants to get out of this town and start a new life. She is propositioned by Kyle, a cool jock at her high school, to write his papers in exchange for popularity, but she just wants to be left alone. Razor, a member of the ominous Reign of Terror motorcycle club, cannot let go of the questions he has about his family's past. Why will no one tell him what they know about his mother's death? Razor must trust the club. But how can he trust them if they are keeping important information from him? When Breanna first meets Razor, she knows speaking to him is wrong. But maybe he can help her with Kyle. And maybe she can help Razor uncover what really happened to his mom. Can a good girl and a bad boy work together to solve each other's problems? In this stand-alone second installment of the "Thunder Road" series, McGarry develops a daring love story filled with blackmail, revenge, and unexpected trust. VERDICT McGarry once again creates an incredible story with two dynamic protagonists. YA romance fans will be thrilled by her latest.—Jessica Strefling, US Court of Appeals, Federal Circuit Library

Ridiculously amazing. I was so skeptical to read Razor's story, because he does not seem like the kind of guy you want to get to know in Nowhere But Here, but boy was I wrong. Him and Bre's story is absolutely amazing and I wish there was more. If you're on the fence about continuing this series, get down, because this series only gets better! I highly recommend you start this series immediately, and begin counting down the days with me until we can finally read Violet's story in book three.

Having really enjoyed Nowhere But Here, I was really excited to get my hands on Razor's book. I got even more excited after hearing Katie McGarry talk about how she wrote this book for her daughter because of a social media incident that happened when she was younger. Breanna is definitely a character that I think a lot of girls will be able to connect to, as who doesn't want to fit in high school? No one wants to be teased or ridiculed and with social media being the way it is, it's so easy to ruin reputations and twist innocent things to look bad. My heart ached for Breanna. She is such a sweetheart and I hated how she was brushed aside by her family. She is shy and super smart, but what she wants most of all is to be noticed. She has gone for so long feeling ignored by her own family and sliding under the radar at school. However, making waves isn't her thing and while she wants change, she doesn't want it in a drastic manner. Being around Razor will definitely make waves and give her attention, but it's the negative kind, as everyone thinks they know all about the Reign of Terror MC. However, Razor ends up being the one person who truly sees Breanna for who she is and he accepts all of her. That boy made me swoon like crazy and I love how he and Breanna end up being just what the other needs. Razor is a good guy, but he has been having some issues with the club and his father lately. He may be patched in, but the club doesn't trust him and he doesn't trust the club, which is a huge problem. The club is a family. They are a brotherhood and would sacrifice their life for another. The tension between Razor and the club is high due to a mystery Razor can't let go of. He enlists Breanna's help in deciphering a code he found that will lead to answers and in turn he offers her his protection. I absolutely could not stand Breanna's family. I understand that they have a lot of kids but she was never made a priority and that wasn't fair. She tried talking to her mom about what was happening with Kyle blackmailing her and her mom pushed her aside to deal with her older sister's drama. The whole situation just rubbed me the wrong way and I don't really feel it was resolved in the end. Her parents went from one extreme to the other and it bothered me that they only saw what they wanted instead of what their daughter was trying to tell them. Razor's relationship with his father is strained as well, but mostly because Razor feels his father is betraying his mother's memory. I don't agree with the way Razor's dad handled everything, but that doesn't change the fact that he is human and makes mistakes. These two just needed to open the lines of communication instead of letting it fester and turn into a blowout. It was nice to see Emily and Oz again, as well as Chevy and Violet. I am super excited for Violet's book, even though I know it's going to kill my heart. This girl has been through hell and back and I love how strong she is. However, she's not without her breaking point and we saw a glimpse of that here. I am really looking forward to seeing how McGarry handles her story. Overall, I am totally invested in this series and the MC and can't wait for more!

***Review posted on The Eater of Books! blog*** Walk the Edge by Katie McGarry Book Two of the Thunder Road series Publisher: Harlequin TEEN Publication Date: March 29, 2016 Rating: 4 stars Source: eARC from NetGalley Summary (from Goodreads): 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. What I Liked: I've read Pushing the Limits, Dare You To, Crash Into You, Take Me On, Nowhere But Here, and now Walk the Edge, and while Pushing the Limits holds the only five-star rating from me, I think Walk the Edge is probably my favorite of McGarry's full-length novels. I remember being utterly blown away by McGarry's debut, but I think this book is better, even if my ratings of the books wouldn't make it seem so. I didn't like Nowhere But Here as much as I'd hoped, but that was for reasons that were pretty specific to that book. I knew I'd want to continue with the Thunder Road series, and I am very glad that I did! This book focuses on Razor and Breanna. Razor (legal name Thomas Turner) is the only patched-in member of the Reign of Terror motorcycle club that attends the high school (he's eighteen, which is the minimum age). He is a man of few words, and everyone is terrified of him. Everyone including Breanna Miller, fifth of nine children, and relative genius of the high school. Breanna has never felt like she belonged, not at school, or in her own family. Razor chivalrously helps her out at the school one day, and the pair can't stop thinking about each other. When a photo is taken of them and Breanna is threatened and blackmailed, Razor and Breanna are determined to make sure that the photo never surfaces, because it's not just Breanna's reputation at stake. I got sucked right into this book, which actually surprised me a little. These books of McGarry's are really long, and often start off pretty slowly. This story has a beautiful cadence to it. It starts a few days before senior year is going to start for Breanna (and Razor). The first scene does not involve them meeting. We see Razor exactly as who he is and how everyone sees him - cold, silent, dangerous, a lit fuse slowly burning. We see Breanna as she is - swamped with familial responsibilities, constantly giving up what she wants, to help her parents with their other eight children.

My love for Katie McGarry and her novels is no secret. I've been obsessed with her writing since Pushing The Limits and I fell even more head over heels in love with her after reading the first Thunder Road book, Nowhere But Here. I have been eagerly awaiting Walk The Edge, and by eagerly I mean salivating and chomping at the bit. Walk The Edge brings us right back into the crazy world of the Reign of Terror Motorcycle Club, and boy am I glad to be back. Much like with the first book, Walk The Edge focuses on two people coming together and realizing the meaning of family, acceptance, and love. Unlike the first book, though, both of our main characters look at the Reign of Terror with skepticism. While Razor is a member, he also knows the club is keeping secrets - and that doesn't sit well with him. Not at all. Breanna, on the other hand, is pretty much petrified of the club because she grew up in Snowflake and has heard all those nasty rumors that seem to circulate anything and everything that is different. I honestly cannot tell you if I liked this book more than the first, or visa versa. Both are self contained - you technically don't have to read Nowhere But Here to understand Walk The Edge, but I do recommend it. On their own, each book is wonderful, swoon-worthy, and action packed - though, in Walk The Edge we get to see more of the action firsthand. I am in love with both. I adore Oz and Emily and Razor and Breanna, I couldn't pick between the two if you asked. Overall, Walk The Edge has definitely earned a place on my shelf of fame. It was perfect. It was the perfect balance between loyalty and self discovery. It was a carefully crafted masterpiece full of twists and turns and moments that will turn you into a sobbing puddle of fangirl - or boy. It is a must read, it is a book that will last generations and appeal to a variation of audiences. Walk The Edge is the type of book that you will struggle to put down. It is the type of book that will suck you in completely and you won't even know you are lost until it is too late. Katie McGarry is the queen of contemporary and she keeps on feeding my addiction. We're going to need a Thunder Road Support Group.

As a huge fan of the Pushing the Limits series, I was super excited that McGarry was making another contemporary romance series. I loved the first book Nowhere But Here, so I just KNEW I needed to get my hands on this one! Razor is part of the club that everyone fears. Breanna is the smart girl who's brain that everyone fears. The two of them together should be scary, but they equal more of a team. And they begin to once someone begins to blackmail Breanna over a compromising picture that involves Razor. With Razor already being in a position to disobey the club, he follows Breanna to make sure she stays ok. Until the inevitable happens... His past comes back to haunt him and Breanna's future approaches faster than she thought. I loved Razor. I thought he was badass but still such a freaking sweetheart. And to top it off, he was not what everyone put him out to be. I hate stereotypes and I love when people break them down. It made me happy that he didn't try to conform to what everyone made him to be. Through it all, he was still his own person. Tortured, but still his own person. And then there was Breanna. I had a bit of a problem with her. Reason being... She had so much to say about rumors and yet she LIVED by them. I rolled my eyes so many times because she kept saying what other people were saying and I was done with it. She was a walking example of how people were saying things that weren't true about people. It was like she didn't learn anything. I also felt really bad for her. She wanted to fit in so bad, where as my mantra has always been to be your own person and screw who doesn't like it. Butttt I know that wasn't how she felt. It hurt to see that she cared so much about everyone else. The only real problem I had with this book was the length. Don't get me wrong, it was good, but it seemed fluff filled. Looking at my actual book, my sticky tabs don't even start until page 200 something. I just think the first hundred or so pages could've been thinned out. I do love fluff and details, but sometimes, too much is too much. Especially in a contemp romance, it just seemed like this was a bit too long. As for the romance, I really liked seeing them together. They had a lot of things in common even though they didn't want to admit it. And as far as the ending, I can honestly say it was a realistic ending. it wasn't what I was expecting, but I can definitely see that happening in real life. I really love McGarry's writing style and I can't wait to see what else comes up in this series. I did my best to not read the chapter from the next book, but I saw who it was about and it made me fall for it even more. I can't wait until McGarry's next book!

Katy McGarry does it again! She manages to deliver a wonderful book with strong characters with heartbreaking stories that make your heart swell with happiness at the end. In this book we are back in Snowflake and with the Reign of Terror but this time we focus on Razor and Bre, since I read Nowhere but Here and Razor kept being mentioned I knew he's book was going to be one of my top reads of 2016. Razor is living with so much pain, so many doubts about his mother's death, what really happened that day and why nobody would tell him the entire story. So he takes matters into his own hands, going against his club and sometimes against his family and friends. Bre is also living with pain, she pretends to be someone she is not and when she tries to act the way she wants to something happens that makes her retract into herself once more. I was so invested in these characters, I hurt for them, I wanted to protect them, to show them love and to tell them that thing would get better, Bre really spoke to me, there are no similarities in our lives but even so, I could see how hard it was for her to belong to her family, to have to hide who she was in order to protect those she loved and to know that even doing that she still got harassed by those she was protecting. Razor is so unique, he became my favorite Katy McGarry character within the first chapters, I got so angry at the people around him, those who weren't letting him have peace, those who wouldn't answer his questions, those who underestimated him and didn't see him for who he really is. As I said the book has amazing characters, a fast paced story with family, love, heartache and happiness.

Reviewed by Annie and posted at Under The Covers Book Blog In book two of the Thunder Road series by Katie McGarry, seventeen year old Breanna and Reign of Terror MC member, Razor get their happily ever after. Although marketed as a Young Adult novel, I feel like McGarry borrows some themes from the Contemporary Romance genre and utilizes it here. It gives the book a more mature feel to it that I can appreciate. Breanna is smart and responsible, someone who you don’t really think will be involved with a boy in a motorcycle club. Although I didn’t hate Breanna, I also didn’t connect with her very much. To me, she just didn’t capture my interest as much as Razor did. From the very beginning of the book, I found myself more interested in Razor and his mother than Breanna so whenever the book switched POVs, I noticed that I was interested in one storyline more than the other, creating an imbalance in the story. However, that is not to say that the romance worked. McGarry delivers a very sweet romance for these two. If you’re a fan of the way bad boy/good girl trope then you’ll enjoy this story. But I can’t help but mention the Reign of Terror before this review is over. The club is very much a motorcycle club but I feel like McGarry has a different twist in it. In fiction you usually see bikers are the bad boys, if a little bit shady and rough around the edges. But McGarry’s, while on the troublesome side, they aren’t dabbling in drugs or prostitution or anything like that. It could be that she’s writing to the YA crowd but they do seem a little more waterdowned than what I am used to. Nevertheless, I am looking forward to Chevy’s book!

As always there are never enough words to describe the supreme brilliance of Katie McGarry's writing, and Walk The Edge lives up to every one of my expectations. I could wax poetic about the loveable, complicated characters. Or maybe swoon about the romance that is so captivating and potent it had my heart trying to leave home. Or would you rather hear about the way you are dragged into the story, a participant in every low and high the characters experience, so much so that I read the majority of this book even when I had a pounding headache and through squinted eyes, all so I didn't have to put it down. And if that's not enough to convince you to read this book, and if you're not swayed by mysteries and thrills that wind you in knots, then all I can say is this is a story of choosing your family, learning to find that place you belong, standing up for what's right, being brave and falling in love. There are kisses so electric my hair stood on end, heartbreak and second chances. If you've read a book by Katie McGarry, you know all this already and if you haven't, then what are you waiting for? This is the second book in the Thunder Road series, and while each book contains its own story arc, it would make more sense to read them in series order. I can't wait to read Katie's next book, but for now I can very highly recommend this one (and then go back and read it again.) Want romance, danger, hot guys on motorcycles and a strong, intelligent female lead, then try Walk The Edge - you just might get more than you expected. The publishers provided a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

I wanted to read Walk the Edge because I adore Katie McGarry, and even though motorcycle clubs haven't been my thing in the past, she certainly opened me up to it. They are legal in her books, and they are so tight, its a family and they really look out for one another. Of course, Razor, we met in the first book, and he is young, still in high school, but already in the MC. His mom passed away, and a detective is prowling around and asking him questions about what happened, and making Razor question what he thought he knew. The official story is an accident, but some think that it was suicide and Razor can't help but wonder about that, but the detective suggests it might be murder. I like Breanna, she is smart and she has a lot of responsibility with her family. She wants to go to a private school because she is already finished the hardest high school courses, but her family needs her at home. The family dynamics on both sides are pretty turbulent. Breanna has a large family and she feels left out with the siblings. She feels like they don't like her, and she is in the middle of the group of older siblings and being the sitter/caretaker sibling for the younger ones. They pick on her for her superb memory and call her a freak. As far as Razor, his dad had promised no other woman would spend the night and when that is violated, their trust is further fractured. I loved the chemistry and the inclusion of some of the characters that we met in the first book. The MC and trust is a big plot arch for Razor, and feeling included in her own family and understanding her place is Breanna's. The place of social media, the image of individuals, being who you are, and also the element of blackmail all showed the characters things about themselves and others. Breanna was put in a very precarious position, and I felt for her big time having to deal with that as well as her morals. Trying to understand and navigate the MC and their unique rules, exceptions and wrestling with how legal/different the reign of terror is. They have a rough reputation around town, some warranted and others not at all. And the women and girls that date or hang around them get a whole different rep. Overall, I loved the book and everything that kept it moving. Bottom Line: The characters, romance and everything I have come to expect from McGarry.

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. I *loved* this book. Romance at its best. Fresh, new love, learning to trust, and having that special person to lean on. Spectacular! As soon as I finished it, I was sad that it was over. Razor & Bre were amazing. I've loved all of Katie's books. She's my #1 fave author. Also, after finishing Walk The Edge, I'm especially anxious to read about Violet & Chevy. I know it's going to be just as amazing!

I really liked book one of this series, even though I often had issues with the characters' behavior in it. But this one? This one I loved from page one. Breanna and Razor/Thomas are fantastic characters. At first glance it appears they couldn't be more different, but as the story continues we begin to see that they actually have a heck of a lot more in common than anyone thinks. Both are used to being talked about--Breanna because of the quirky way her brain works, and Razor because of how his mother died (not to mention he's already a full-fledged member of the Reign of Terror). Razor's been unable to fully trust his family (the club); even his dad has been on the can't-get-too-close-to list since his mother's death. Breanna's the middle of nine kids, and has never felt like she belongs--the older kids shut her out while the younger ones see her as another parent, mostly because her parents are constantly dumping the care of them on her while they're elsewhere. Even when she essentially begs her mother to listen to the problem she's having, her mother brushes her off because her older sister Clara "needs her more" right then. And then there's the secret pain that they're both holding deep inside them and have been for years...so, yeah, they've got a whole heck of a lot in common. Their relationship grows slowly, which is exactly as it should be. For all that the good girl/bad boy troupe is seemingly everywhere these days, somehow this story makes it feel fresh and new. I loved watching them grow closer together--first as friends, then as more--and how each of them made the other one stronger. I especially loved how they eventually resolved Breanna's big problem--it wasn't one or the other of them "fixing" it, but they each did their own part to make things better. Plus, Breanna's way had me in tears. Actually, the whole last quarter of the book turned me into waterworks. But I digress... Usually MC books aren't my "thing", and as much as I loved Ms. McGarry's first series (Pushing the Limits) I would have never believed I'd say this, but Thunder Road just might actually be my favorite series of hers...especially if Violet and Chevy's book lives up to the hype I've built up for it in my head. (It's next! YES!!! And she only made us sit through two other books to get to it...but what fantastic books they were :)) And Goodreads says there's going to be a fourth book after that? YES. Rating: 4 1/2 stars / A I received a complimentary copy in exchange for an honest review.

Katie McGarry is one of my go to Authors. I was hesitant to read this series since I’m really not interested in Motorcycle Clubs. So, I cautiously read the first book and really really liked what she did with it. I am a succor for family stories and this definitely fit it. I was still hesitant to read the second book; surely I can’t get two books from MC books that I would like. Silly me, I shouldn’t have worried and just trusted that she would bring it again and she did. I loved it!! Ms. McGarry has a way of writing that pulls you in and makes you think and feel and try to see all sides. I loved the characters and the story line. I can’t wait for Violet’s story. Being a parent of a few teens, I know how parents want to protect their kids. That thought really made me want to smack myself because I was rooting for the teenagers in the book. Gah! I should be on the parents’ side! If you’re sad because you’re in trouble,” Elsie says, “then don’t be. I get in trouble all the time, and sometimes after I cry, those are the times Mommy hugs me the hardest and you look like you need a hard hug.” And she does it. Elsie hugs me hard, throwing her entire being, soul and all, into loving me. I hug her back and try to fight the lump hardening in my throat. I love how Ms. McGarry puts things so they come back to full circle in the end. That’s when the real aha moment comes. “Bridges are meant to connect. They’re meant to defy drops and distances, but occasionally we lose our way…we fall off, we drive off, we consider jumping.” Razor (Thomas Turner) is 18 and still in high school. He has been patched into his MC. He is a little volatile and has a reputation. People are afraid of him. His own MC keeps secrets from him because they can’t trust him. He goes out and does things on his own instead of asking his MC family for help. Breanna is smart. When she sees a puzzle or something that needs to be solved and she can’t get it out of her head until it’s solved. She feels like a freak. She has been quiet and not outgoing because she had been embarrassed over the way her mind works. Breanna has a large family with 9 kids with her in the middle. Her family expects help from her. They expect more from her since she is the responsible child. She just wants to be a little more outgoing. Her family forgets to pick her up one day after school and they start texting about how she is overdramatizing when she is at school alone with the kids from the Reign of Terror MC looking over Razor’s motorcycle. She is scared. She is especially afraid to be alone with them. But she thinks that Thomas looks very nice. He comes up and tells her that he can’t leave her there alone and says he will be her bodyguard. She is both afraid and intrigued by that. She’s heard rumors. They might kill her after all. But still, he is kind. The next day at class, Razor sits behind her and watches her solve the code that the teacher put on the board and would give extra credit to if solved by the end of class. He notices that she doesn’t say she solved it. Now he’s intrigued. Breanna is determined to break out of her shell this year. So she goes to a club. Razor is there too and he rescues her at a bad moment. When he puts her down on the tailgate of a truck, it looks like a compromising position. Kyle notices that and takes a picture. Kyle wants Breanna to write her papers this year so he can get better grades for football college entrance. Kyle blackmails Breanna with the pi

I have never read a book by Katie McGarry that I didn’t absolutely love. And McGarry’s Thunder Road series is fast becoming one of my favorite Mature YA/NA series. I knew after reading the first book Nowhere But Here, and getting a glance at Razor’s character, that this broody, gorgeous, biker bad boy was going to break my heart, and I was so right. Razor doesn’t know the hidden truth behind the death of his mother, and that has deeply affected his life, burdening him with guilt. It all comes down to two choices for Razor: whether to believe his father's version of the truth or the town's. Razor chose his father's and the Reign of Terror MC's version. It was a choice based on his survival, but his heart and mind still holds on to the pain and doubt about his mom's death. And when a man with a badge shows up at Razor's door wanting to talk to him about his mother's death, the pain that has been festering in Razor all these years explodes, and he has to finally find and know what the truth for himself. Bre (Breanna) has always known that you steer clear of the Reign of Terror MC, and she knew to stay far away from the dangerous, sexy, beautiful bad boy biker, Razor. But when Bre is blackmailed, she finds herself under Razor’s protection, and Razor finds himself needing Bre's help to find the truth about his mom. Bre starts to see the other sweet and beautiful side of Razor, the side that other people don’t, and she’s falling hard for the beautiful bad/good boy biker. Razor is also seeing different sides to Bre---goodie two shoes girl, and the girl that wants to be a little bit of a bad girl. Bre is the only person that has made Razor feel alive, who has brought a smile to his face since his mother died. I also loved that Olivia, who took on the role of being a grandmother to the trouble MC biker teenagers—even though she passed away in the first book—is still touching their lives. She’s still guiding them and making sure they discover the truth for their lives and obtaining their true loves. Razor and Bre are both walking on a dangerous edge. But the edge is where Razor and Bre will find each other and it will lead them to the road of a forever love and their healing. I highly recommend Walk the Edge as an awesome must read.

4.5 stars I liked, but didn't love the first book in this series, but because it's Katie, I knew I would continue reading. I loved Breanna and Razor right from the beginning. They're so different, yet so alike, and I loved seeing Breanna grow stronger and Razor soften up a bit. Not to mention some very sweet and deliciously swoony parts. Oh, and Breanna's entire family deserves a junk punch. Seriously. They're all hateful people. The motorcycle club aspect was definitely a part of the story, but it didn't seem as overwhelming this time. I really enjoyed seeing the club fight to bring Razor into the fold. Okay, maybe it was a bit dramatic at times, yet overall, completely enjoyable. **Huge thanks to Harlequin Teen for sending me an arc**

Katie McGarry's book boys are like chocolate chip cookies; crunchy on the outside, warm and goey on the inside. I liked Razor and Breanna as a couple and as individuals. Their tension was heart-racing, their kissing scenes swoon-worthy. It's always nice to see teen characters actually talking to each other, attempting to work through their relationship like the young adults they are. I wasn't crazy about Breanna's family dynamic. So many siblings made it difficult to keep track of everyone and at times, I got her siblings mixed up with her friends and vice versa. Her parents were selfish and annoying, the expectations and pressures they put on her and her older siblings was unfair. I'm all for families working together to love and support one other, but older kids are not surrogate parents for their siblings. Treating them as such can create a lifetime of resentment. The motorcycle club has it's issues, but I enjoy the brotherhood forged, especially between Razor, Oz, and Chevy. I'm really looking forward to Violet's story, I have a feeling that will end up being my favorite.

I love Katie McGarry's books and if you've never read anything by her, then that's something you'll definitely want to rectify. I fell in love with Echo and Noah in Pushing the Limits, and haven't read a book McGarry's written since then that I didn't love. Walk the Edge is the second book in McGarry's Thunder Road Series, which centers around an MC Club called Reign of Terror, It is something all you MC Club novel fans will love, with the added bonus of having a hero and heroine that are teenagers. This is a huge treat for YA fans, as most MC club novels aren't appropriate for that age group. That said, Walk the Edge is also written in a way that older readers will enjoy and devour as well. We first met Thomas "Razor" Turner in the first book in this series, Nowhere But Here. He comes across as somewhat of a loose cannon, a dare-devil, unpredictable, filled with angst and his own brand of "terror," while being a totally hot badass at the same time. Girls fear him and secretly want to be the object of his focus, if only for a moment. No one, however, knows the real Thomas "Razor: Tucker...not even his closest friends, who've had has back since they were kids. Granted they know him better than anyone else, but it isn't until he meets Breanna Miller, that someone sees inside him and gets to know what hidden's beneath all that hotness and all that goes along with it, including all the pain he's experienced. Breanna Miller is the 5th child in a family of 9, and has been "unseen" by her family and picked on by kids at school since she was small. She has a special gift, which many don't understand and therefore make fun of, but something that Razor finds he loves about her. Their's is a love story that is beautiful and heartbreaking, one that as a reader, will cause you to cheer for this couple from the get go, while sitting on the edge of your seat at times, smiling at other times, and flipping the pages because you can't wait to see what will happen next. The romance is wonderfully written and I just loved Breanna and Razor's story. It has just the right amount of steam that isn't to much for the younger reader, yet enough to satisfy those who are older and like a little more sizzle in their romances. Overall, Walk the Edge is an outstanding second installment in this awesome series by Katie McGarry. You'll definitely want to check it out. I know I can't wait to read what she has in store for us next.
