Long Way Home (Thunder Road #3) by Katie McGarry Review
Long Way Home - Katie McGarry

Goodreads Synopsis: Seventeen-year-old Violet has always been expected to sit back and let the boys do all the saving.

It’s the code her father, a member of the Reign of Terror motorcycle club, raised her to live by. Yet when her dad is killed carrying out Terror business, Violet knows it’s up to her to do the saving. To protect herself, and her vulnerable younger brother, she needs to cut all ties with the club—including Chevy, the boy she’s known and loved her whole life.

But when a rival club comes after Violet, exposing old secrets and making new threats, she’s forced to question what she thought she knew about her father, the Reign of Terror, and what she thinks she wants. Which means re-evaluating everything: love, family, friends . . . and forgiveness.

Caught in the crosshairs between loyalty and freedom, Violet must decide whether old friends can be trusted—and if she’s strong enough to be the one person to save them all.

 

 

Review:

 

This wasn’t quite the story I was expecting. Long Way Home started with a bang and kept me captivated all the way through! There are also some twists in there that I was not expecting!

 

I loved that in the first book we got to see Oz’s total devotion to the club, then we got to see a different side to the club and question their actions through Razors story. Now through Chevy and Violets we got to yet again see that no matter what the club only tries to do right by their family, and although they might take it a bit far at times they are only motivated by their loyalty to those they love.

 

Violet is such a strong female character! She is completely devoted to her little brother and to those she loves but she is not a damsel in distress who needs rescuing and is willing to speak her mind no matter what. Girl power! And of course Chevy is not only swoon worthy but, like McGarry’s many other male leads, he would risk his life for his family and is fiercely protective. I really liked that Chevy could choose a different path and still be accepted by the club.

 

And then there’s Isaiah! I was so excited when they even just mentioned his name! We didn’t get to see a lot of him or his interactions with his family which it would have been nice to see his reaction to the club and how he fit into their dynamic. I would have also liked to see Isaiah and Chevy get to know each other and how their relationship would have turned out.

 

I can’t believe this is the last book in the Thunder Road Series, I’m gonna miss all the gang. I would love a story on Addison and the “new member” that has taken a liking to her ;) All in all this was a great conclusion to the series as everything was summed up really well and I can’t wait to see what McGarry has in store for us next!

Walk The Edge (Thunder Road #2) by Katie McGarry Review
Walk the Edge (Thunder Road) - Katie McGarry

Goodreads Synopsis: 

 

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

 

 

 

Review:

 

Again another fantastic read by Katie McGarry!

 

I think I liked this book slightly better than the first one as there was more drama and tension which made for an entertaining read.

 

In the first book we were introduced to The Reign of Terror Motorcycle Club but in this book we saw a different side to them. In book 1 we were taught to trust them completely because Oz did, but in this we actually doubted them. There were grey areas to the club that we didn’t get to see previously which I don’t know how I feel about. Yes they are a family and would do anything for each other but they have a lot of rules that can be a bit much to take sometimes like when something is labelled “club business” even when it involves those outside the club. 

 

I loved Breanna and Razor together, although they are completely different they were drawn to qualities mirrored in each other. I also loved that we got to see a lot of Oz, Chevy and Emily in this book :D I did miss Olivia as she was one of my favourite characters from the first book. It would have been nice to see what she thought of Breanna and her relationship with Razor.

 

I liked the addition of the social media site ‘Bragger’ and how it affected Breanna as today everything is online and blackmailing people with pictures etc is sadly a part of our society. I wasn’t expecting things with Kyle to turn out the way they did but was happy with the turn of events.

 

I love listening to the playlist after I finish Katie’s books and reliving the feelings and emotions of particular scenes. ‘Blank Space’ was also the perfect song to represent Razor.

 

I’m so excited to read the next book as I’ve been dying to read Violet and Chevy’s story since ‘Nowhere But Here’!! It’s going to be a long wait until 2017 though :(
