Review: Where the road takes me

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.

My thoughts:

This book is so lovely. It’s a good read, love story and has characters who can only love. For some people it might be too cheesy and I don’t blame them, but I really liked it and cried a little.
The story is really good and it’s a romance you can get lost into. It is so sad and heartbreakingly beautiful that you wish to be Chloe and a guy like Hunter to be your lover. I really like that Chloe brings out the best in Hunter and that he can start believing again that he has a chance to be with someone who likes him the way he is and not because of his good basketball skills. They get each other out of their emotional hole and they complete each other without even realising it. It’s like they have just been waiting for each other their whole lives.
The characters are chosen really well, because on one side you have  Chloe who is this really self-confident, but at the same time shy girl who doesn’t want to be noticed because she doesn’t want to hurt anyone. Then you have Hunter on the other side who is a basketball pro, very popular at school, has a girlfriend who is only his girlfriend because he is hot and popular. You get to know Hunter’s and Chloe’s friends and family who are so different it’s almost funny, because Chloe only has people in her life that care about her and love her just the way she is and Hunter’s friend’s are the opposite, they don’t really care about him and don’t even know the real Hunter.
But when Hunter meets Chloe both their lives change drastically and a fight about love begins which seems impossible to win in the beginning, but after time and as their journey together continues they start realizing that it doesn’t hurt them to be together but makes them stronger.
What I also really liked about this book is that the author wrote an actual ending, not an open ending, but an actual, “they-are-together-and-their-lives-continue-and-let’s-see-what-the-future-brings”.
The ending of the book is the best part about is because it is so great and it teared me up.
