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.

Once again Katie knocks it out of the park. I loved book 1 of the Thunder Road series and was anxious to pick up WALK THE EDGE. There weren’t as many twists as book one but this one still had a plot that kept me reading and wondering what was going on.

WALK THE EDGE has the same set-up as all of Katie’s books where it is told in duel POV of a male and female. Katie always creates unique voices for each of her characters. I love this part of her books because we can get inside both characters heads but we can also see how each character can stand on his or her own.

As great as these characters are on their own, I absolutely loved Breanna and Razor together. I always start one of Katie’s book a bit curious how the couple will meet because she usually pairs together two people who run in different social circles. Quiet Breanna ends up softening Razor to where he can be more open where as Razor pushes Breanna to be just a bit tougher in a few places. Together they create a good balance.

One of my favorite things about Katie’s writing is the pacing! Everything is fast paced where you find yourself not wanting to put the book down. I would sit down to read a chapter or two and find myself still reading 100 pages later. Her stories grab you quickly and don’t let up until the last page.

I highly, highly recommend picking this one up! I think this one would appeal more to people who didn’t find book 1 as enjoyable as Katie’s other series because it isn’t as focused on the motorcycle club and it’s hierarchy/rules as book 1 (but both are still important to the plot of this book but not as in your face as book 1).
