ROAD TO NOWHERE

COVER MODEL: MARSHALLPERRIN
COVER DESIGN: THE FINAL WRAP
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.
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.
I have been following this story since M. Robinson told us this was her next book. I had this idea of how the story would go only to find out that I was wrong. She took this story to a different level and I loved/hated it. Hated it because I don't think I will ever get enough Creed.
Creed has had a hard life, one that has been set in stone since the day he was born. His MC group is his life. He goes from a know it all teenager to a slightly jaded man. The losses he's had define and shape him, leading him down a road he never thought about before. The one bright light in his life has always been and will always be Mia.
Mia comes to us as a little girl and we watch her struggle for independence as a teenager. Needless to say Daddy is a little over protective. The thing I love about her the most is she knows what she wants and goes for it. The one thing she's always wanted is Creed, no matter how crazy it is.
Creed and Mia have an uphill battle to fight to get what they both want, each other. Will Mia’s family and baby daddy be accepting to the idea of Mia and Creed? Will Mia’s life always be in danger because of the feud between MC groups?
Buckle up if you dive in. You'll run the emotional gauntlet. On a positive note we get a little dose here and there of some of our favorite men and women. Finding out if the Good Ol Boys are up to the same things is worth the buy alone.
Here are a couple quotes I liked;
“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.”
“Death leaves a heartache no one can heal. Love leaves a memory no one can steal”
“To hell with those little shits who won’t stand up for you. You’ll meet a man one day who’ll love ya and show ya. Takin’ names for whoever steps in his fuckin’ way. And he’ll be one lucky bastard to have you as his woman by his side.”
“I knew we were from opposite sides of the tracks, always had been. Probably always would be. But I also knew right then and there, I wanted him to be that man in my life. The one he just described with so much sincerity and love in his voice.”
“There were no words that could describe what I felt holding a piece of Mia, a piece of my fucking heart in my hand at that moment.”
Writing style- 5/5
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.
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.
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.
