Meet Blake & Chloe in Where the Road Takes Me

in this new coming of age novel by Jay McLean


Where the Road Takes Me
by
Jay McLean

Release Date: February 10th, 2015





*** Synopsis ***


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.

*** Excerpt ***


Chloe lifted her gaze and locked it with mine. She shook her head again and groaned, "Fine." Then she took off her shirt.

My jaw dropped.

My hands had touched her bare skin, the curve of her hips, and her tiny waist, but I'd seen her body only once, when she was in a bikini, and that had been for only a minute. But that was nothing compared to seeing her like this. Up close. So close her sports bra–covered breasts were just under my nose.

"Blake?" she whispered.

I struggled to take my eyes off her chest, but I finally made it to her face. She had her hair tied up in a messy knot on top of her head, like she often did. But a few strands were stuck on her neck and on her face... and a little sheen of sweat covered her arms and her stomach, her chest, her breasts...

"Blake," she repeated, and I trailed my eyes back to hers again.

She pouted before she said, "Give me the ball?"

I shook my head and hid the ball behind my back.

She pouted again. "Please?" she whispered. Then a hint of a smile broke through.

"Are you trying to seduce me into giving you my ball?"



"Because over the years of building walls and living my life one day at a time, I'd learned to accept my fate and never hope for more than what I had. I'd never questioned the way I thought about my life. But Blake — he made me question it. He made me want to change it. To change my outlook. And to change myself. But I couldn't. And I wouldn't. Because one day, sooner rather than later, I'd be gone. And I'd leave them all behind."

*** Excerpt ***


I look over at Glenn, who has flagged down a taxi and is waiting for me with the door open. He's good looking. Hot as fuck, actually, and it is exactly what I’m looking for. Something to take my mind off Tate. Something to take my mind off how awkward things have become between us.

"Coming, sexy?" Glenn drawls.

Giving him a tight smile, I head towards the taxi. As I'm bending to get in a hard slap comes down on my butt. I yelp in surprise and a little pain as I glance behind me at Glenn. He has a sinful smile on his face as he slowly lifts his hand to his lips, placing his index finger and middle finger on each side of his mouth and darting his tongue through them.

My face scrunches up in disgust and he chuckles at my reaction before slapping my ass one more time to send me flying into the taxi.

I scramble to the far seat and fight with the seatbelt to try to get it buckled. Glenn seats himself beside me, much too close, as he gives the driver his address. Thank goodness it's not too far.

Before I can buckle my belt, Glenn is ripping it out of my hands and throwing it back over my shoulder as he attacks my face. I say attack because it is exactly what he does.

I cannot keep up as he devours my face, licking all around my mouth and slobbering all over my chin. I'm struggling to breathe as he pushes me back against the window and I suddenly feel like a small animal, captured by its predator.

I panic as he blocks my nasal passage while thrusting his tongue in and around my mouth, and my body instantly shuts the situation down. By which, I mean I clamp my teeth shut around his tongue and bite hard.

"Fuck," he screams, pulling away from my face.

I'm breathing heavy as I take my first full breath in almost a minute. His face falls to my heaving chest, which is covered in a light sheen of sweat.

"Fuck, baby likes it rough."

I gag at his sleazy tone and words, but before I can respond, Glenn is all over me again. His mouth is nothing compared to his hands as they roam all over my body. Roam is probably too tame a word. He is groping me from head to toe, pulling my hair, roughly squeezing my breasts. Hey Glenn, here's a clue; they're fucking attached.

He continues on, grabbing and rubbing at my crotch like a horny teenage virgin.

Thankfully, it's not long before the taxi driver clears his throat, and we are stopped in front of an apartment building.

Glenn throws some money at the driver before stepping out of the taxi, and I consider just giving the driver my address and leaving Glenn curbside.

She hops on a plane headed home to Canada, only to decide to give herself one more chance to make it before hers becomes a life of "I told you so's."

And while she juggles writing a popular blog, locating a missing male model, and a sexy new boss who reminds her a little too much of home, Paige is about to learn that “making it” has nothing to do with where you end up, but everything to do with how you get there.
