Genre: New Adult, Romance, Contemporary
Blurb: 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 liked the book, even though there were things that bothered me a bit.
I really liked Blake, how patient and caring he was for his age and also Josh and Blake’s mom. I liked the emotional impact and also the idea of red and black ink/days. It’s unique and really fit into the book. I didn’t like Chloe in the beginning, the decisions she made and how distant she was, although the reason was understandable. There were a few moments in the book that weren’t very believable for me, but if we leave these few aspects aside, it was a solid read and sweet contemporary romance.
Chloe had her life planned, but from the moment she met Blake, everything started to change bit by bit. She wanted to be invisible and didn’t want to let people in, and she was successful at it before Blake. Chloe went for her dream, which was the road, but she didn’t go alone, that decision changed their both lives forever. There’s also something to remember-love conquers any hurdle and makes everything worthwhile.
