    1. Honestly, I just can't do it. I cannot finish this book novel story great big cliche.I tried so hard. I'm the kind of person that's prone to bouts of wanderlust so the blurb made me think myself and the female MC might have a lot in common. Mix in a bit of summer romance and sexy times and I expected to feel like July had come early. It didn't take more than a page for the disappointments to start rolling in.I'm not joking when I say this book is one irritating cliche after another. On the very [...]

    2. 4 stars! Where the Road Takes Me is a story about two teenagers named Blake and Chloe. One night, they ‘meet’. Blake is jogging and sees a distressed Chloe. He’s the type of guy that needs to help her and make sure she’s okay. Blake is taken with Chloe from the very start. You can tell Chloe has some sort of feeling for Blake, but she won’t let herself feel. Won’t let her self get too close to anyone. I knew my future. I knew my fate. And I knew that I had absolutely no control of an [...]

    4. 3.5 starsI don't even know who I am anymore. Most of my friends didn't care for this book. Umm. I liked it.I'm supposed to be that hateful bitch that one stars everything. Dammit. I might have gotten slipped some of the kool-aid when I wasn't looking.This book is chock full of some cliches. You got some insta-love, terminal illness and all kinds of stuff going on.

    5. So NOT Unexpectedly Phenomenal.I swear I took this story on its own merit. I kept an open mind this whole read and I never compared this story to any of the author’s previous works. Sadly this story had a lot that simply just didn’t’ work. It was like a countdown of stars the further I read 5, 4, 3, 2.It felt like tiny chunks of information were removed here and there that would have helped me form any connection to the two main characters and this story. I kept thinking am I missing somet [...]

    9. I've been a fan of JayMac's More Than series with More Than Forever being my favorite. Going into this, I wasn't expecting another More Than This/Her/Forever, but I was expecting fluid story telling, flawed yet relatable characters and engaging writing. Sadly, WtRTM failed to meet all of those things. The StoryThe plot has great potential. Chloe is a young girl who has felt invisible all her life. One night, she meets Blake, a popular jock at her school and they have this instantaneous connectio [...]

    11. **2 Black Letter Stars** First of all, I don't know why they changed the previous cover because it was so beautiful! Blake is a high school -basketball star, who seems like he has the perfect life, but he knows that this isn't true. Chloe is an invisible girl, who wants to stay this way for her own personal reasons. What happens when she meets Blake and suddenly she's not invisible to him anymore? What happens when her only plan in her life is to leave after graduation on an eternal road trip, l [...]

    12. DNF @ 45%I'm not going to write a rage review. I have no energy for it. So, instead, I'm going to put in some quotes, so you can see for yourself what an utter, utter, stinking mess this book is.Or you can read any other NA book out there, and the plot is practically the same.@ 1% in: Chloe: You know how sometimes you can tell that something is about to happen, even though there are no physical signs?

    13. 3 Unexpected Stars. Chloe knows for sure how her life is going to end, so instead of being sad for that she has everything planned out: finish high school, do a road trip with no time limit and just enjoy life with no strings. What she hadn’t planned was Blake, but when one event throws hem together, life has a funny way of throwing them together constantly after that. They both have feelings for each other, but not only they come from different realities but Chloe is decided not to let anyone [...]

    14. Where the Road Takes me was my first book by Jay McLean. I know that she has a great following and is admired by her fans so it gives me no pleasure to say that this book just didn't work for me in any way.Why? Well, I don't wish to write chapter and verse or spend hours critiquing a book that wasn't for me so I'll keep it brief The hero's actions, with regard to his girlfriend made him seem week, juvenile and lacking in integrity. The transitions felt disjointed, the execution of the book didn' [...]

Title:Where the Road Takes Me Series:Standalone Author:Jay McLeanRelease date: March 3 , 2015Rating:3 starsCliffhanger:No HEA(view spoiler)[yes (hide spoiler)]When I saw the synopsis for this, I was thoroughly intrigued by the idea of a girl who's plan to escape on the road eclipses everything and everyone around her. My first impression of what the basis of the book was going to be wasn't quite what I had thought-there's a lot more to it than a free-spirited girl who wants to escape and explore [...]

    16. 3.5 starsMy first book by Jay McLean. Expectations? Sweet love story. Roadtrip. (I love roadtrips.) Probably predictable. Reality?I got scared after I saw few not so positive reviews, but I still read it. I was right - it was predictable and full of cliches. I liked it despite that. Yes, it is melodramatic. Yes, some things were over the top. But if you liked, for example, Slammed by Colleen Hoover, I am sure that you will like this book as well. What I liked?Where The Road Takes Me is an emotio [...]

    19. DNF @52Unfortunately I am not enjoying this one at all. The writing feels choppy going from one scene to the next without good transition. The heroine's attitude is not endearing me to her all, and I feel like she is being completely selfish - I understand she has a 50% chance of getting a genetic illness but I just don't understand her way of dealing with it. It doesn't make a good story to me. I'm sorry to say that I can't carry on. ARC gratefully received from the author in exchange for an ho [...]

    20. “Sometimes the wrong path can lead us to the right road. And toward the greatest thing that will ever happen to us.”2.5 sadly underwhelming stars.I’m a big fan of Jay McLean’s More Than series, and was so excited to dive into this book. Sadly, as much as I wanted to connect, I just didn’t feel it! I’m probably going to be in the minority with this one but the choppy writing, questionable character behaviour and overly intense teen romance just didn’t work for me. And yes, it hurts [...]

    21. I love road trips and I love books about them, so I was really looking forward to reading this one. I've only read More Than This by this author and it was an okay read for me.Chloe and Blake are both senior in high school, but they have two different lives. Blake is the star basketball player, he's handsome, has a lot of friends and a beautiful girlfriend. Chloe, instead, wants to be invisible and tries to keep everyone at her arm's length. Chloe has a plan: after graduation, she'll leave on a [...]

Write the words.Erase the words.Bang your head against the keyboard because there are no words to describe the way you feel at this very moment.Re-read the book because a book like this can't be read just once.Try to type more words for a review that will just be gibberish.Receive life altering news that rocks you to your core.

    24. This was my first Jay McLean read and I have no idea what to expect.I was disappointed, though.I found myself wanting to DNFed this book most of the time because the main characters are seriously annoying. Chloe. Her mom and aunt died of of a certain illness so she was afraid she would, too. So, she spent her life pushing everyone away and fading in the background. Well, maybe I was freaking selfish but I think relationships are the strength you need to go on. Why on Earth would she push people [...]

    25. 1 - "I just wanted one night" Star.DNF @23%I put this book on the back burner a while ago after seeing many, many less than positive reviews for it from my peers around its release. Teen angst and drama are things I get pissed off with really quickly if they are overplayed, or added for erroneous reasons, without any reasonable explanations to them.But after finishing Kick, Push (it’s successor) in a day earlier this week, I thought I’d put on my big girl panties and give it a go as Chloe a [...]

    26. I was provided an ARC via NetGalley in exhange of an honest review.*Tiny spoilers ahead*First of all, I was under the impression this was New Adult.I don't even know how I made that mistake. I distinctly remember reading this under the NA section in NetGalley. So you tricked me NG! So why am I whining about this, you ask? Cause I hate abstract sex scenes. It's not like I'm into reading erotica or anything but you gotta give me some kind of detail. It's all in the details!SecondThis story is abou [...]

    27. 2 StarsSo I know that a lot of my GR buds follow Jay McLean faithfully. And that's awesome! BUT - with this being my first book by McLean, I'm not sold. This isn't going to keep me from reading any other books by McLean, however. She must have a good following for a reason right? This onejust wasn't the one for me.Chloe has a 50% chance at having cancer. Oh, she also has a 50% chance at NOT having cancer. She lives her life like she has cancer. But what that means for her is to keep everybody at [...]
