Review ~ Walk the Edge (Thunder Road, #2) by Katie McGarry

Walk The Edge (Thunder Road #2)
eARC received via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review

Release Date: March 10th 2016

Publisher: MIRA Ink (Harlequin UK)

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.

My Opinion

I was hesitant to request this. While I enjoyed book 1, I did struggle with a few things and I wondered if these problems would carry over to Walk The Edge. However, I enjoyed Razor's story a lot more and found Walk The Edge hard to put down.

This book did have a slow build for me, but once Breanna and Razor started interacting it became more interesting. I liked how Razor was the rebel of the club. It meant there weren't so many rules or club business sections. Sure, they were always there but Razor was fighting them and so it made for more interesting viewing.

I also liked how he treated Breanna. Deep down he was a good guy who'd had a hard childhood. I thought his growth was believable and that he developed and accepted his past well. Similarly, I could empathise with Breanna's fears of standing out and not wanting to be made fun of. She was a likeable character who slowly found her strength and I'm glad she did.

The only slightly downside is I did feel the ending left a little to be desired for. Although things work out, it's not in the way I hoped and for me it wasn't completely satisfying. It was enough, but there could have been more.

Overall, I'm glad I took a chance on this book and I'm intrigued to see Violet's story.
