One moment of recklessness will change their worldsMY REVIEW:
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.
If you read book one, Nowhere But Here, which was a 5 star read for me in 2015, then trust me when I say you're gonna love Razor's story!
If you're new to this series, it follows a biker gang of guys called Reign of Terror. Sounds ominous right? There's definitely some bite to their bark, but I love this world of bad biker dudes. They actually have strong moral compasses when it comes to the value of life and family. They abide by the laws of the land but yet have their own way of handling things - none of which require killing others. That's very different from your stereotypical biker club. These guys have big hearts and are loyal to their core.
One of the themes of this series that I've loved so far is that the girl doesn't give up everything for the guy she falls in love with. She still has dreams and goals and a life outside of the relationship with the biker boy. The guys encourage the girls to not give up on what their dreams are because they want what is best for her. Their relationships prove that distance doesn't have to be a problem when you know that's the person for you, no matter where they have to live. This creates strong heroines that every girl will want to be.
It kept me engaged and made me feel lots of emotions - a good bit of tightening of the throat and burny eyes. Ooh man, at about 90% through there's a scene that nearly devastated my happily-ever-after endings that I look for in stories. My heart definitely dropped for a beat.
If you're a fan of McGarry's or just contemporary romances in general, especially those about bad boy's, then you MUST check out this series!
Top Favorite Quotes:
...Razor's teaching me there's more to me than logic - there's also a ton of passion.
"Don't let your fears create walls or define you."
"Home is supposed to be safe. Home is supposed to be the one place you can go and know that the horrible things people say to you won't be said to you there. It should be that place that forms a protective shield and it's okay to be quirky and messed up and...and accepted."
