Road to Nowhere
The Good Ol' Boys Spin-Off by M. Robinson Release Date: December 6th, 2016 Add to Goodreads Cover Model: Marshall Perrin Cover Design: The Final Wrap Source: Author eARC received in exchange for honest review Synopsis: I once read that every warrior hoped an honorable death would find him. I always went looking for mine, but not even the Reaper wanted me. I was trained to kill. I was trained to not ask why. To take orders and just march in line. Hooah motherfucker. Life or death. Ride or die. And I’m not only talking about the military. I’m talking about the life that led me on the road to nowhere. My life. I fought for my brothers. I fought for my family. I fought for my country. And I fought for her… Never realizing I might die for them too.
In 2016, one of my reading goals was to read a book by an author that has been on my TBR for a good amount of time. All my bookworm sisters have been telling me to read a book by M. Robinson. I finally did and I can’t wait to read all the other titles that she has published. Her writing style is captivating and her characters fascinating. If you have not read the Good Ol’ Boys Series, have no fear. You can absolutely read Road to Nowhere if you have not read that series.
In Road to Nowhere, we follow Mia Ryder and Creed Jensen. The cute and passionate social butterfly meets the sexy and intriguing bad boy. In a life filled with tragedy and loss, Creed never expected to meet a girl who would steal his heart. Mia might be nine years younger than him, but she’s like a breath of fresh air in his world of darkness. From the moment they meet, they have an instant connection that turns into a beautiful friendship. Mia is a ray of sunshine that appears in the most difficult of days. Her friendship means the world to Creed. As time goes by, Mia and Creed’s feelings toward each other turn into an intense love. Creed has never felt anything like it. He would do anything to protect Mia. Their love story is a chaotic hurricane of emotions. Will they find their HEA down the road?
There are many things I loved about this story. I loved that it was written in a dual POV. Both Mia and Creed’s POV brought so much to this story. Mia and Creed are extremely intoxicating together. They are a mix of passion and fire that will have your heart beating from beginning to end! Their chemistry is intense and their love for each other all-consuming. Mia and Creed’s friendship turned into love and it was important for me to know how they both felt about their connection. What I also loved is how all the events that happened in Creed’s life have shaped him in the man that he is today. He’s perfectly imperfect and that is the kind of hero that I love to cheer for.
We got heartbreaking moments in this story, but tender and passionate ones as well. It was easy to escape into this story and follow these two characters. The author did a fantastic job with this book and I can’t wait to see what will happen next. This book ends with a cliffhanger, which left me wanting more! April can’t come soon enough! I can’t wait to embark on my next M. Robinson reading escape!
I give, Road to Nowhere, by M. Robinson, 4 passionate, page-turning, intense stars!
Mia Ryder. Mia fuckin’ Ryder. I sat at the train tracks. Desperately trying not to think about her, but it was easier said than done. She came into my life like a fucking hurricane, destroying everything in her path. A girl from the right side of the tracks, which for some reason I couldn’t ever fucking fathom. Falling for a man like me. I had made mistakes, too many to fucking count, but life didn’t give you a do-over. All that was left for me to do was to accept them, even fucking embrace them. They became a part of me, as much as every tattoo that covered my body. Every one of them meant something to me. They were my battle scars. Far worse than the ones I got in war. In the eyes of others, they were just colorful, intricate art. But to me... They were my solace and my pain. Nothing had changed since the last time I fucking lived in this godforsaken town. No welcome home party from family or friends, no thanks or parades from the town residents for serving our country. Nothing. Not one fucking thing. Everything I had done, I had done for my family, for the MC, for her… I fought for my fucking brothers. I fought for my goddamn country. I fought for my girl. Never realizing… I might fucking die for them too. Ashes to ashes, dust to dust, and all that fucking shit. I once read that every warrior hoped a good death would find him. I always went looking for mine, but not even the Reaper wanted me. I thought fighting for something I believed in would make me a good man. In the end, it never mattered. I would always be on the wrong side of the tracks, and they would always lead me to the wrong station. Changing my people, places, and things throughout the years didn’t help change the outcome of the choices I’d made. Of the things I’d done. At the end of the day… I was already nailed to the cross. I was fucking born on it.
