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.

After reading the first book in this series, I knew it was going to be a series that I wanted to continue. I enjoyed the introduction to the world and the characters and I was excited to read Razor’s book to understand why he was so closed off and quick-tempered.

Breanna was from a large family, she is the fifth child out of nine, and has always been the smart reliable one. When I first met her I could see that she wanted to be challenged by attending a new school, but her parents weren’t ready for her to go. She doesn’t push the issue and is resigned to how her life turns out to be. But I could see that she was unhappy and was often forgotten about or teased by her siblings. Her story really broke my heart, because she didn’t fit in at home or at school, she had a couple of close friends and just wanted to stand out for all the good reasons, but soon she found herself twisted up in an evil game with another student.

Razor is a prospect in the Reign of Terror motorcycle club, and still attending school. He is quite the serious character but often acts on his own before thinking things through. This spontaneity is why he’s not a full patched brother and why they don’t trust him. When he crosses paths with Breanna, he starts to have feelings that he hasn’t felt since the death of his mother, and all those unresolved issues resurface again.

Razor and Breanna’s relationship developed gradually. Razor saw past the smart girl to the struggling and sad girl underneath. Razor slowly opened up to Breanna and faced his demons. He was reckless to begin with but over time started to think things through. I liked that he wanted to help Breanna and his feelings grew for her, even though she was from a different world. Breanna learned to open up to someone and saw past the mask that Razor hid behind.

I enjoyed how the story unfolded and felt the turmoil that both characters were dealing with. I was glad to see Razor was able to grow and become a better person for himself, Breanna and his club. The relationship with his father was strained and all he wanted was answers. Breanna’s family often annoyed me as she was always pushed aside. I wanted to be there for her and give her the support she needed. I was glad that they found one another. Walk the Edge was a great follow up book in the Thunder Road series, the romance was sweet, with a gripping storyline, and a touch of suspense that made it hard to put the book down. I’m looking forward to continuing the series!!

Breanna just broke my heart... I had to share this to show you how meeting Razor changed how she felt about life and herself.

“I’ve hated Snowflake for so long,” she says. “But then I met you. And you’re the person this entire town has trashed, a person belonging to the group I’ve been raised to believe is evil, and you’re the only person who is able to make me feel as if every part of me is beautiful.”
