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 roadher dream of freedom, at least for a little while.

Blake Hunter is a basketball star who has it alleverything 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.

Teaser Quote
"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 Blakehe 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."


My Review

Write the words.

Erase the words.

Bang your head against the keyboard because there are no words to describe the way you feel at this very moment.

Re-read the book because a book like this can't be read just once.

Try to type more words for a review that will just be gibberish.
Receive life altering news that rocks you to your core. Read the book again because the tears are already flowing, why not add more.
I can't stop the tears from streaming down my face. I can't stop the emotions inside my body. I can't stop the feels. I WANT THE FEELS TO STOP.
Don't be such a WHORE, Chelcie. Get your act together and write this fucking review. YOU HAVE TO MAKE IT THROUGH THIS REVIEW. (slaps face)
Where the Road takes me is a story that will forever be embedded in my soul. I have been rendered speechless. I never thought a book could touch me the way this book did. Sometimes a book is written and you read it and you love it. But then life takes a turn and you feel so lost and you think that life won't ever be the same. You are in a dark world and you see no way out of it. You then read this book  again and it gives you hope. It makes you have faith. This book did that for me.
THIS BOOK TURNED MY WORLD RED at the exact moment I needed it too.

I have never doubted Jay McLean's ability to write Magic. I have never doubted her brilliance. But after this book, I am left in AWWWWW of her ability to bring me to my knees. I am not worthy to live in a world with her books.

The way the words flow together, it's like they wrap around each other like they were always meant to be next to each other. They become one and you wish they would last forever.

She takes you on this journey that you never want to see the end of. It's beautiful, it's pain, it's sorrow, it's pure MAGIC.
I love that she can write a book so full of the feels, but at the same time, she gives you so many laugh out loud moments. It's witty and fresh. THIS BOOK IS EVERYTHING.
This will be a book that I save and have my girls read when they are old enough. The way she wrote Chloe, makes me want to go back in time and start over. Change the way I see the world and do it all differently.

I want a Blake Hunter in my life. Jay McLean writes THE MOST SWOONWORTHY leading men ever. I want all boys to look at all the girls in the world the way Blake looked at Chloe. He saw her worth. He saw her just as she needed to be seen.
The words Jay McLean writes are not just words. They are pieces of her soul that she allows us to take and absorb into us. I will never get over this book.

  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 bracovered 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?"
