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.

“Sometimes the wrong path can lead us to the right road. And toward the greatest thing that will ever happen to us.”
When I started this book, just like any other, I had no idea what I was stepping into. I don’t read synopsis, I don’t read reviews. I admit, I pick most of my books based on covers…and I’m not ashamed of that in the least. I also go by authors I’ve taken a chance on and fell in love with their work; if I was impressed with your first story, you’ve got me for life. I will forever read your work…Jay McLean is one of those authors.
Where the Road Takes Me did not disappoint. Not only is the cover beautiful but in true McLean fashion, I felt her words. My soul ached and soared. I fell in love with two people destined to find each other from the very first page. I watched an entire lifetime unfold in just a few short hours of my own existence. I experienced every emotion from the deepest part of my heart. I can’t explain it any better than that…and yet, I’ve said nothing about the actual book.
I can’t. I can’t describe in words that could possibly do this story justice. All I know is that in the face of tragedy, or even just life itself, whether it be good or bad, can be boiled down to two things.
Black-Letter Days for when everything just sucks and you can’t imagine life getting any worse.
Red-Letter Days for when you find something phenomenally exceptional.
“You can run, you can hide, you can choose not to see, but where the road takes you will always lead to me.”
Read this book. Feel this book. And go forth to make your own Red-Letter Days. Because life is too short for anything but.
“Today will live forever in the memory of tomorrow.”

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?”
