    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.

BBReview:
Ugh! What an amazing second book in the series! I absolutely loved Emily and Oz's story and was really hoping that their story would continue in book two. Sadly, book two is all about Razor and Bre. When I first found this out, I was not really looking forward to reading it, but I knew it was probably going to be amazing like all of Katie McGarry's other books. The only reason I wasn't looking forward to Razor's story is because in Nowhere But Here, he didn't really seem like the type of guy I would want to know. He seems super unstable and all of his "friend"/brothers are pretty much counting down the days that he kills someone and asks for their help to bury the body. But, I decided to go ahead and start it, and then BAM! Sucked in again. Just like the first book, Walk the Edge only took me a day to read it. How in the world could someone so awesome and sweet as Razor come off so badly in book one? His friends obviously don't know him very well, which we do learn in Walk the Edge that it's because he doesn't trust his brothers, let alone anyone, very much.

I was seriously so happy that I decided to go ahead and give Razor's story a chance, because it was absolutely amazing. What was super funny is that we got a peek of Emily and Oz in this book and they didn't seem super interesting from Razor's point of view either. How crazy is that?

What I absolutely loved is that this book is all about building trust. Bre feels like she absolutely alone in the world. Nobody understands her, nobody knows the real Bre, and nobody probably ever will until she finally leaves Snowflake for good. That's until Razor walks into her life. Razor trust noone. Not his dad, not his brothers, and sometimes not even himself. When Bre gives him a shot and puts some trust into him, it completely changes him for the better. Again, I could not get enough of their story and I was rooting for them the entire time. Razor is such a sweet boy and I hope that his friends get to know the real Razor soon.

If you've read book one, loved it, and are a little skeptical of reading book two since it's Razor's story, don't be. It's absolutely amazing and you will love it. Now, I cannot wait for book three. Too bad it doesn't come out for a whole nother year. The next book is Violet and Chevy's story, and again I was super bummed. That was until I read the excerpt at the end of Walk the Edge. I am so ready to be sucked in again.

Overall:
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.

Rating: ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ 5/5

Excerpt:
“I’m here about your mother.” The asshole knows he has me when my eyes snap to his. 
“She’s dead.” Like the other times I say the words, a part of me dies along with her. 
This guy has green eyes and they soften like he’s apologetic. “I know. I’m sorry. I’ve received some new evidence that may help us discover what caused her death.”
Anger curls within my muscles and my jaw twitches. This overwhelming sense of insanity is what I fight daily. For years, I’ve heard the whispers from the gossips in town, felt the stares of the kids in class, and I’ve sensed the pity of the men in the Reign of Terror I claim as brothers. It’s all accumulated to a black, hissing doubt in my soul. 
Suicide.
It’s what everyone in town says happened. It’s in every hushed conversation people have the moment I turn my back. It’s not just from the people I couldn’t give two shits about, but the people who I consider family. 
I shove away those thoughts and focus on what my father and the club have told me—what I have chosen to believe. “My mother’s death was an accident.”
He’s shaking his head and I’m fresh out of patience. I’m not doing this. Not with him. Not with anyone. “I’m not interested.”
I push off the railing and I did out the keys to my motorcycle as I bound down the steps. The detective’s behind me. He has a slow steady stride and it irritates me that he follows across the yard and doesn’t stop coming as I swing my leg over my bike. 
“What if I told you I don’t think it was an accident,” he says. 
Odds are it wasn’t. Odds are every whispered taunt in my direction is true. That my father and the club drove Mom crazy, and I wasn’t enough of a reason for her to choose life. 
To drown him out, I start the engine. This guy must be as suicidal as people say Mom was because he eases in front of my bike assuming I won’t run him down.
“Thomas,” he says. 
I twist the handle to rev the engine in warning. He raises his chin like he’s finally pissed and his eyes narrow on me. “Razor.”
I let the bike idle. If he’s going to respect me by using my road name, I’ll respect him for a few seconds. “Leave me the fuck alone.”
Damn if the man doesn’t possess balls the size of Montana. He steps closer to me and drops a bomb. “I have reason to believe your mom was murdered.”
