Title: The Road That Leads To Us
Series: Us Series (standalone)
Author: Micalea Smeltzer
Release Date: October 27, 2015
Things are about to get rocky for Dean Wentworth and Willow Wade.
Willow Wade is used to living in the spotlight, with her father a famous drummer in the band Willow Creek—her namesake—it’s been a lot to live up to and oftentimes she doesn’t feel she’s enough. But there has always been one person she could turn to.
Dean Wentworth knows a thing or two about how crippling a name can be. His family is worth billions after all. But Dean’s always been content to do his own thing. Play his guitar. Work on cars. And geek out to his various “nerdoms”.
But when Willow turns up unexpectedly, he realizes maybe there is more in life he wants.
One trip will change their lives forever.
The Road That Leads to Us.....what more can I say to that? Can I just say that Micalea Smeltzer is now one of my must read authors. I love reading her works. She creates unique and lovable characters that may have something in common with readers, and it might not necessarily be the same thing. Each reader might find something else that connects them to Willow and Dean. But they're unique, not like any other characters around.
Not to mention Micalea's writing makes the time seem to fly by as you flip page after page.
The plot was intriguing and we were introduced to some new characters as well as some old friends. And may I just say that it was awesome but at the same time weird seeing the Willow Creek crew all grown up with adult children. It certainly felt odd but it also felt good to see how well the crew have done since each couple got married and had kids. They also haven't changed as much. Maddox is certainly still his man-child, hedgehog loving self and Emma still is the adorable person who has learned to accept his differences and laugh with them. And they certainly haven't lost any of their passion *cough cough* awkward for the children.
I enjoyed this spin-off and I cannot wait for Liam's book! I certainly want to know what is going through his head!
Those bitches were gonna die.
That was a horrible thing to say about my so-called ‘friends’—and I used the word friends loosely, because true friends wouldn’t ditch you the day of your scheduled road trip because they’d rather be sunbathing in the Hamptons.
The fucking Hamptons.
I mean, how clichéd could you get.
This was why I hated rich people.
It also sucked that I was one of those rich people.
Well, I wasn’t, but my dad was.
So by extension so was I.
When you grew up with a rock star for a dad, cameras and eyes followed you everywhere. It was exhausting.
I couldn’t just be Willow.
I was Willow Wade.
The daughter of the famous drummer Maddox Wade.
People expected greatness from me.
I just wanted to graduate college without slitting my wrists.
