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.
5 Reasons to read Where the Road Takes Me
Many of you know I’m going to devour every book by authors I love. It took me a while, but I finally read Where the Road Takes Me. And I was not disappointed. Here are some of my reasons why you need to read this book!
- I love how Chloe and Blake meet. It’s fun but also a tad serious.
- These two can’t fight how the feel for each other no matter how hard they try.
- This book will break your fucking heart! I’m not even going to lie. There are times when you will bawl like a baby and you won’t even be sorry about it.
- But it will also give you hope. I love that McLean makes you feel every damn emotion imaginable. She may destroy you, but she’ll slowly piece you back together.
- I also love how friendships and family is so relevant in this story. And it’s not always blood that makes you family. It’s love, devotion, and knowing a person will be there for you no matter what. And that when a person makes a mistake…there is always a chance to mend that bridge.
Overall, I have massive love for this book. I suggest you all grab your favorite drink, get in your comfy reading place, and soak up this story.
