Review: Where the Road Takes Me by Jay McLean


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.

Okay, so I was really excited about this book because I love the More Than Series, but it just didn’t give me the same kind of feels. 

Chloe and Blake meet when they literally bump into each other. They spend the rest of the night hanging out and just talking. There was a kiss at the end of the night, but not a promise of more to come. That was Chloe’s decision mind you, not Blake’s. 

I loved Blake. He was so patient, understanding, and loving. Sometimes I just could not understand why he was still chasing after Chloe. That girl was just too much sometimes. He had a lot of things going on in his life too, but he wasn’t as difficult as Chloe was. 

I just could not connect with Chloe. I know that she’s had a hard life, but there were a lot of people that cared about her. It’s like she wanted to be miserable. I was just really frustrated with her. 

There were times when she showed that she was a nice person. An annoying one, but nice. 

Josh was a great character. He was a great guy and an awesome friend. I would read a book about him!
