Life is full of choices- of chances- of moments. Chances we regret not taking. Choices we wish we could change. And then there are the moments that define us.

Kam was my choice…The one who stole my heart instantly.

Kane was my chance…The one who set me ablaze with just one look.

They were my moment… Two brothers that both owned a part of me. Two brothers that I loved in different ways for different reasons.

One brother shattered my heart.The other put it back together.Both changed me forever.

The Road to You is a standalone contemporary romance.

 “I let the wind carry my cries and the rain wash away my tears. I let it all go, knowing with complete certainty that nothing will ever be the same again.” 

 

Review~

I have not read any of Melissa’s previous books so going into this one she is a new to me author. I took this one as review request to squeeze in between some of the other ARC I had going on because the blurb caught my attention. Elara’s journey in this story is one of pain to peace. The story is fast paced and very sweet and heartfelt. There is some mild angst for those that like that.

I did have a few issues and that lead to the rating I gave it. First of all ,for me the blurb kinda did not make sense and is a bit misleading. That’s a pet peeve of mine, I feel like they should match what story you get. Second, I never really connected to the characters or felt invested in what happened. I need to connect or care about the characters and for me that never happened.

I think Melissa has talent and is a good writer but this one is a case of “It’s not you it’s me” and I can see why it has the ratings it does. This will not stop me from checking her stuff out or reading her in the future.

 

 

 

 

 

“Kam was my beginning, my middle, and my end. Without him I’m lost. Without him, I don’t even know who I am.”
