Chloe has one plan for the future, and one plan only: the road. She’s made a promise to herself: don’t let anyone in, and don’t let anyone love her. She’s learned the hard way what happens if she breaks her rules. So she’s focused on being invisible and waiting until she can set out on the road—her dream of freedom, at least for a little while.
Blake Hunter is a basketball star who has it all—everything about him looks perfect to those on the other side of his protective walls. He can’t let anyone see the shattered pieces behind the flawless facade or else all his hopes and dreams will disappear.
One dark night throws Chloe and Blake together, changing everything for Blake. For Chloe, nothing changes: she has the road, and she’s focused on it. But when the so-called perfect boy starts to notice the invisible girl, they discover that sometimes with love, no one knows where the road may lead.
Where the Road Takes Me is one of the most beautiful and creative stories I have ever read!!!
It is truly and absolutely beautiful!
Only one word comes to mind. Beautiful.
Chloe has been through so much in her young life. She has literally survived through hell. She is truly a remarkable woman and I admire that strength. Her strong views never faded away, but they just gave some space to Blake and love. She is an incredible role model, whose loyalty, kindness, sweetness and affectionate ways were never destroyed, despite the hell she survived.
Despite everything, Chloe came out the other side victorious. She lost everything, but she gained everything again later.
Blake is such a great guy who was scared and confused about who he was, what he wanted to do and how he would do that. He was alone, except his friend, Josh. Those two have an amazing chemistry and their friendship was truly admirable. Again, it falls under loyalty. And Blake is that. Loyal to the core.
He found someone, when he had almost no one. And that someone found his true self and let it shine.
You can go on and on about this book, praising the characters and the writing and the story and its message and so on.. And they do deserve it, because they are flawless.
But, I believe that’s not necessary.
Jay McLean delivered perfection and there’s no other way to put it.
Where The Road Takes Me is one of the best reads of the year and quite possibly, one of the best reads in my Read shelf.
This masterpiece receives 5 Amazing Stars, just like any other perfection does.
This is a Must Read!
Chloe lifted her gaze and locked it with mine. She shook her head again and groaned, “Fine.” Then she took off her shirt.
My jaw dropped.
My hands had touched her bare skin, the curve of her hips, and her tiny waist, but I’d seen her body only once, when she was in a bikini, and that had been for only a minute. But that was nothing compared to seeing her like this. Up close. So close her sports bra–covered breasts were just under my nose.
“Blake?” she whispered.
I struggled to take my eyes off her chest, but I finally made it to her face. She had her hair tied up in a messy knot on top of her head, like she often did. But a few strands were stuck on her neck and on her face . . . and a little sheen of sweat covered her arms and her stomach, her chest, her breasts . . .
“Blake,” she repeated, and I trailed my eyes back to hers again.
She pouted before she said, “Give me the ball?”
I shook my head and hid the ball behind my back.
She pouted again. “Please?” she whispered. Then a hint of a smile broke through.
“Are you trying to seduce me into giving you my ball?”
"Because over the years of building walls and living my life one day at a time, I’d learned to accept my fate and never hope for more than what I had. I’d never questioned the way I thought about my life. But Blake—he made me question it. He made me want to change it. To change my outlook. And to change myself. But I couldn’t. And I wouldn’t. Because one day, sooner rather than later, I’d be gone. And I’d leave them all behind.”
