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.
Review - 5 Stars
Oh Jay! Geez you get me every time. The funny thing is, for the last two weeks I've been listening to Taylor Swifts Red album. Then while reading they mention the color Red. It was totally destined for me to read this now. I've had it on my TBR list but I've had so many reviews going on, I had put it off my list for awhile. But I had to read something that I wanted to read. So I made the decision to do it now :).
Jay does this thing, she creates these amazing characters and these amazing stories. Chloe is lost and has lost so much in her life. She was ready to just take the road and forget everything. But that's until she meets Blake. Someone who had never noticed her, till the night she needed it.
I feel like they both saved each other. Chloe needed to be saved, no she's not a damsel in distress. She needed to know there was someone out there, that would love her and think of her even when she's not there. You can't runaway from the things that scare you. You have to embrace them and move forward. You have to experience life and live.
Things that happened in this book are very relatable. I lost an aunt to Cancer and I miss her every day.
This is one of the best books I've read. Jay knows how to tell a story, how to pull at your heart strings. A place where you feel comfort, even when you've haven't had a good day. Though it makes you cry, it was great. I can't count how many times I laughed in this story. Absolutely, perfect.
