Rating: 5 Stars

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.

Review

I would like to thank the publisher for providing me with an advance copy for an honest review.

I had been waiting for Razor’s story ever since I read an advance copy of Nowhere But Here. I wanted to know more about why he was so withdrawn. I was so excited when I found out that Walk the Edge was his story, and that the other POV was an equally dynamic Breanna. I loved Walk the Edge and this DUO was everything I wanted them to be. Razor was tough on the outside but it is just a shell to protect his fragile heart. Bre is smart and everyone seems to take advantage of her and not see more than her intellect. She wants people to know the real her. I was sucked right in by the chemistry, the dynamics of human resilience, the whole gang being back (Razor would say not gang but club or family) and the bigger mystery needing to be solved.

Razor and Bre, both have been misunderstood and find it hard to share who they really are with just anyone. They soon realize that they have a connect with each other and have more in common then they ever could have imagined. This mismatched pair that everyone thinks are wrong for one another or will hurt each other go through so many struggles in deciding what is right for them.

Razor’s mom died and he needs Bre’s help in solving what happened. Bre is being threatened by Kyle at school to help him cheat.

Can Razor solve what happened to his mom before he looses the last family he has left? Will Bre figure out a way to stop Kyle before he destroys her future? Can Razor and Breanna make it work with so many things working against them? What danger are they putting themselves in? You have to read this amazing book to find out!

Walk the Edge is an amazing addition to the Thunder Road series. This book can be read as a standalone if you have not read the first but I love both and recommend reading them both!!! Katie is such an amazing writer and has a fantastic way of capturing the human spirit.  I can’t wait to read Chevy and Violet’s story, it has been threading throughout the 2 books and making us want to see where they would end up. I am definitely giving it 5 out of 5 stars and would recommend it.

 

And don’t miss the first book in the Thunder Road Series,

NOWHERE BUT HERE!

 

Walk the Edge - Tour Teaser 1

Excerpt:

School starts in a few days and tonight is senior orientation. My parents are currently in a meeting with my guidance counselor while I’m being propositioned.

Propositioned. My lips tilt up sarcastically.

My goal for this evening was to be noticed. Guess I succeeded. I was noticed, but not for my new choices in clothing, hair style, or because I dumped my glasses for contacts. Nope, I was hunted for my brain. All exciting and swoon worthy romance novels start off this way, right?

Kyle misreads my body language and his dark eyes brighten. “So you’ll write my English papers for the year?”

Fifty dollars per paper-that’s his offer. Standing in my sister’s second generation hand-me-downs of a sleeveless blue blouse, shorter-than-I’ve-ever-worn jean skirt and platform sandals causes me to consider his proposal if only for the course of a heartbeat. I’m the middle of nine children and, I’ll admit, new and shiny gains my attention, but this…this is wrong.

“Do you know this is the first time you’ve spoken to me?” I say.

He laughs like I told a joke, but I’m not kidding. Snowflake, Kentucky is a small town and everyone tends to know everyone else, but just because we breathe the same air doesn’t mean we communicate, or act like everyone else exists.

“That’s not true,” he retorts. “We sat at the same table in fourth grade.”

I incline my head to the side in a mock why-didn’t-I-remember-that-bonding-moment? “My, how time flies.”

He chuckles then scratches the back of his head causing his styled hair to curl out to the side. “You’re funny. I didn’t know that. Look, it’s not my fault you’re quiet.”

Kyle’s right. It isn’t his fault I became socially withdrawn. That blame falls solely on me. It’s a decision I made in seventh grade when I was publicly crucified.

Blending into paint for the past couple of years has kept me safe, but it creates the sensation of suffocation. Everyone says the same thing: Breanna’s smart, she’s quiet. On the inside, I’m not at all quiet. Most of the time, I’m screaming. “I’m not writing your papers.”

Kyle’s smile that had suggested he had a done deal morphs into a frown and acid sloshes in my stomach. Denying Kyle isn’t what bothers me as much as it worries me what he’ll mention to his friends. They’re the reason why I went voluntarily mute in seventh grade.

Heat races up my neck as the repercussions of refusing sets in, but I don’t even consider agreeing. Cheating is not my style.

Kyle surveys the hallway and, it it’s privacy he’s searching for, he’ll be sorely disappointed. He slides closer and a strange edginess causes me to step back, but Kyle follows. “Fine. One hundred dollars per paper.”

“No.”

“You don’t understand. My grades have to improve.” Easygoing Kyle disappears and desperation is hardly attractive.

I steal a peek into the school’s main office, hoping my guidance counselor will beckon me in. Half of me hopes she’ll have life altering news for me, the other half hopes to end this insane conversation. “What you’re asking for is crazy.”

“No, it’s not.”

In an answer to the one million prayers being chanted in my head, my guidance counselor opens her door. “Breanna.”

Kyle leans into me. “This conversation isn’t over.”

  1. Awesome! I would have to say that I need one of the generators to create my street name…I mean nothing creative comes to mind, so I will go with my social name which is ‘artichoke’ 🙂
