The Road Series

Where the Road Takes Me

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.

The Road, Book 1

Kick, Push

There’s a single defining moment within every skater.
It lasts only a second. Two if you're good. 
Three if you’re really good. 
It’s the moment you’re in the air, your board somewhere 
beneath you, and nothing but wind surrounds you. 
It’s the feeling of being airborne.

The sixteen-year-old version of me would’ve said it was the 
greatest feeling in the world. 
Then at seventeen, I had my son. 
And every single second became a defining moment. Even the ones that consisted of heartbreak when his mother left us.

Seventeen. Single. Dad. 
That’s what my life became. 
Yet, every day, I managed to find that feeling of being 
airborne.
Or at least I convinced myself I did. 
But I lied—to myself and to everyone around me. 
Until she showed up; Tanned skin, raven dark hair, and eyes the color of emeralds.

You know what sucks about being in the air? 
Coming down from the high. 
Sometimes you land on the board and nail the trick. 
Then kick, push, and coast away. 
Other times you fall. 
You fall hard. 
And those are the times when it’s not as easy to get back up, dust off your pads and try again.
Especially when the girl with the emerald eyes becomes your drug...
And you become her poison.

The Road, Book 2

Coast

***Please note: Coast is the sequel to Kick Push and must be read in order***

One life-changing summer. 
One boy.
The boy.
The boy who offered me safe touches and heart-stopping smiles - smiles he shared with his son.
We filled our days with porch-step kisses, 
filled our ears with laughter, 
filled our hearts with love. 
Deep, soul-aching, desperate love.

But love is misleading.
It’s an invisible, fleeting moment.
Somewhere between false adoration and pure hatred comes an emotion, a vulnerable need, a single desire.
It lives within the ones who miss it, who crave it, 
who know better than to expect it.
Love is relentless.
Even when that love turns to hate, turns to loathing, 
turns to pain. 

Love should heal you. 
But it can also break you. 
Believe me, I know…
Because I'm Becca Owens - a broken girl…
…And he's Josh Warden - the boy who broke me.
