Meet Blake & Chloe in Where the Road Takes Me
in this new coming of age novel 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.



I was excited to read this book!!!The synopsis is very alluring and made me want to read this book upon it's arrival.Also if you are a fan of Jay McLean I'm sure you will dying to read it! For me it's the first book from this author and I was very happy when I got my arc.Blake was definitely the highlight of this book for me.He kept my interest till the end.I liked how the book start with Chloe and Blake bump into each other when they didn't expected and start a friendship..Blake is amazing!!I loved him so much!!!He is cute,sweet and patient!!He wants Chloe a lot!!

" "You look nice."

"You already said that."

"I did?" "Maybe you deserve to be told more than once."


Chloe...ugh I really tried to like her but I couldn't.She irritates me so much!!I couldn't understand her..I feel like she was miserable all the time..Ok she has a difficult life but there wre so many people who care for her and she had to understand it...This is the reason why I rated 3-3,5 stars..If the heroine was stronger and captivate,I think it could be a 5 stars for me. Josh was an interesting character too!!I liked him a lot and I would like to see in the future a book for him!!!

As I said before this is my first book from Jay McLean and I loved her writing style so I will definitely check her other books!!This story is sweet,funny and sad.

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?”

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 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.”
