The Road That Led to Us is a start of a new series, but also a new generation. It is the first book in the Us series, but the characters in the book are the children on the characters in the Willow Creek and the Trace + Olivia series. So this series is good for those who want an update on their favorite characters, while falling in love with a whole new set.

The Road That Led to Us follows Willow and Dean. Willow is the daughter of Maddox, the famous drummer from the band Willow Creek. She has had a hard time being in the spotlight as she is a free spirit at heart. Dean is a Wentworth. The Wentworth is a name that is well known as well, but Dean lives his life as a mechanic, which is what he loves to do. Dean and Willow have been best friends their entire lives. Willow, itching for an adventure, goes to Dean and they end up deciding to go on a cross country road trip. What ensues is a wonderfully sweet story of two friends exploring more than the country.

Dean is the first character I really see starting to change. I think this is because he has a calm and accepting personality. This is a nice contrast to Willow's spunky and spontaneous personality. Willow really brings out the adventurous side to Dean, which is a role reversal for most books you read. Willow has some evolving to do as well. She is nineteen and has no clue what she wants to do with her life. I really enjoy her story because most nineteen year old's have similar thoughts about their lives and not wanting to disappoint.

This story is more sweet, but does have some heat. As the road trip progresses, these two best friends learn more about each other and bond after sharing experiences together. This evolves fairly quickly, which I thought was a bit quick, but enjoyed nevertheless.

This book was a fun read for me from beginning to end. From getting to know the very interesting personality of Willow, to the protective Dean who likes to do things for her. From learning how to read a map, drive, sitting atop dragons and more things that they do on their driving adventure this story is full of a blossoming romance that neither is sure they're ready to admit to, even though they start to realize just days into the journey that they have feelings for the other. I couldn't help but to giggle at many of the antics of Willow, and grinned at Dean and his "I'm going to stick with her no matter what" attitude when she got overly silly. Micalea Smeltzer did a great job bringing to us the first of the children from her other two series. I hope you find lots of humor in this book, especially with Willow's dad and his text messages like I did. It is really neat to watch things unfold and bring together these kids. Enjoy the book, I cannot wait for more to come out!

This book was closer to 3.5 stars for me. After starting this book, there were lots of references to other characters, so I looked up the author and see that this is a spin-off of a series. This book is about some of the kids of the previous series, so if you like to look back and see how old friends are doing, this would be a great way to do it. I, however, haven't read the first series, so I didn't care.

This is a New Adult romance, and it was slightly different than the books I usually read in that it was more "sweet" than my usual read. I didn't like the heroine, Willow, and I think it's more "It's me, not you" because she was so young and immature and reminded me of the high school students I teach than an adult that is ready for a real relationship.

During summer break from college, Willow wants to go on a road trip across the country to visit her cousin, and no one will go with her. She returns home to spend time with her family and friends, and her friend Dean agrees to go with her. Road trip back on! Dean and Willow use an old-fashioned map instead of GPS and find new experiences and adventures along the way. And sugar. And maybe love.

This book is the first in a new series, and there is build-up to lead to the second book, but this could be a standalone novel.

Writing Style (POV): dual POV
Sexual Content: Some making out/kissing/touching. There was some "closed door" sex.
Level of Violence: None.

Will I Recommend This Book? It was fine. Not great, and if you had read the first series, it would be great to check in on the new and old characters.

The Road That Leads To Us is a fantastic first novel for Micalea Smeltzer’s new Us Series! This book epitomizes the New Adult genre, full of growing pains, new adventures, uncertainty, self-discovery and falling in love. Dean and Willow’s road trip was so much fun. These two have an entertaining friendship that embraced their nerdy and bizarre personalities, allowing both of them to be exactly who they are. I loved how genuine their friendship felt, made unshakeable by their total acceptance of one another. This open and honest foundation laid the groundwork for a chemistry that was simply inevitable. The second Micalea began to let the sparks fly between Dean and Willow, their feelings ignited into something epic. They balanced each other and pushed each other to grow and live and laugh and love, resulting in an adventure that was full of feels and important life lessons. Micalea Smeltzer’s writing felt absolutely effortless, allowing me to lose myself completely in her sweet story and vibrant characters.

These characters make my heart melt! I fell hard for Dean in no time. I loved how down to earth, humble, kind, and perfectly weird he was. He won me over with his well-timed wisdom, limitless patience, and unwavering support of Willow. He made me laugh and swoon, wishing I could give him a giant hug. Micalea Smeltzer wrote this character to be truly one-of-a-kind and he has certainly made a lasting impression. Willow did so much growing over the course of this novel and her personal journey really resonated with me. Her struggle to figure out the future and find what makes her happy is something we can all relate to and Micalea Smeltzer wasn’t afraid to let us glimpse her moments of vulnerability.
