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.
There is a reason M. Robinson is known as the queen of angst. The raw emotions she instills in her readers while reading her books draw you in and never let you go. Her books stay with you for a long time. They are not just a love story, but stories about life. They are never easy, but worth every tear and laugh it draws out of you.
Creed Jameson is a broken man. My heart broke for him over and over. He is definitely not your typical hero, but one you will root for. He was born into a life he never asked for and lives with expectations and burdens that at times are too much to carry. The choices he makes hurt himself and those he loves. Fighting for his family, for his MC brothers, for his country, for her, he has seen things no man should have to bear.
I just loved Mia Ryder! She was something else. The daughter of Good ‘Ol Boy Lucas and Alex, she has some of the best and worse qualities from her extended family. Feisty, strong-minded and with some mouth on her, she always speaks her mind and follows her heart. Her heart leads to Creed.
Creed meets nine-year old Mia at eighteen. The little girl makes quite the impression and they form a very unlikely friendship through the years with their sporadic contact. Mia provides Creed something he never had before, someone who truly cares about him.
Throughout the story, we see how the life Creed leads takes it tolls on him. He does not believe he deserves anything good out of life. On the other hand, Mia is growing up, but struggling with very overprotective parents. She has a good life, but feels something is missing. All she wants is to be a normal girl for once.
We see how two people leading very different lives find a connection. One they may not understand at first, but know there is something there. Even as we see them living these separate lives, they find each other when they least expect it.
But in true M. style, their journey is not an easy one. Tragedy, loss and unexpected circumstances will stand in their way. I loved this book, even as it destroyed me. M. can do no wrong. I could not put this book down. That ending blew me away. So unexpected. Cannot wait for the next book.
I give Road To Nowhere by M. Robinson 5+ angst-filled stars!
