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 Iâm not only talking about the military. Iâm talking about the life that led me on the road to nowhere.
I fought for my brothers.
I fought for my family.
I fought for my country.
And I fought for herâ¦
Never realizing I might die for them too.
4.5 Star Review by Ashley
I swore I was ready for another M. Robinson book, that I could take it. I was wrong. Robinson can tear my heart out and stitch it back together like she never broke me- but this book left me reeling! From the cover to the adictive writing, everything about this book pulled me inMia and Creed's story is rough. It's gritty and raw, ugly and painful but also laced with moments of blinding hope. It's the hope that makes the angst bearable.
The intensity is there right away. I mean heart pulled out of my chest, stomped on and only partly given back. I can't even begin to put into words what Creed must've felt but it was brutal. Then there is Mia. I really loved her. With a big heart and even bigger personality. She loves with all that she is and gave all she had to all she did. Even when her parents were being overbearing she didn't lose her spark (her parents are (Alex & Lucas from the Good Ol' Boys series- not necessary to read but gives you some insight into their personalities).
Their lives are magically tangled together through Creed's friendship with Mia's older brother- Mason. The little moments in time that Mia spends with Creed, especially when she is younger shone the brightest- I could feel the innocence and the pureness in them. Creed could too despite all the mayhem swirling around him. He needed her sweetness. It was the balm to his tortured and troubled soul.
When that day comes that changes everything- for everyone I was waiting with baited breath to see what would happen next. I knew something major was coming- I could feel it. I wasn't expecting that twist- no one was. And what a chain of events it sets off.
Family. Fate. Fury. Friends. Fear. Road to Nowhere had it all that and about two hundred other things thrown into the mix. I want to commend M. Robinson for the way she handled many of the events covered in this book. They were grave but they were treated with the dignity and class that they deserved. When my heart wasn't breaking it was racing. I was absolutely glued to my kindle. And that ending was just what?!? I was stunned speechless. All I can say is hurry up and bring me more!!
