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. Their interactions with each other are some of the sweetest I've ever had the pleasure to read about.
The plot of this story I felt was lacking. I enjoyed the idea of where the author was going, but I feel like there was something missing. I didn't feel fully satisfied with the way the story was developed. This is my only real complaint though. I liked the book otherwise.
Overall, this was a wonderful book. I really like Micaela's stories and I love that she decided to show the next generation. This book was both humorous and philosophical. Some of the best quotes I will now think of comes from, this book. I would recommend this book to others.
"People expected greatness from me. I just wanted to graduate college without slitting my wrists." Willow, The Road That Led to Us
I clucked my tongue. “You got her the wrong chocolate for Valentine’s day, didn’t you?”
He laughed fully at that. “Probably. We just weren’t a good match. She kept trying to hide my Pokémon cards and that wasn’t cool.” Willow and Dean, The Road That Led to Us
“Don’t you see, Willow, getting lost is all part of the fun. Sometimes you have to get lost in order to be found.” Dean, The Road That Led to Us
“It’s there for a reason so you can discover something great! Without the unknown life would be a stale cheese goldfish cracker!” Willow, The Road That Led to Us
Writing style: 5/5

*Reviewed for SBR Blogs*
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.
A truly epic, hilarious, romantic adventure.
Willow Wade, (daughter of Emma & Maddox Wade, drummer of willow creek.) home from college, is looking for an adventure in the form of a road trip. When her friends flake on her, she turns to her best friend, Dean Wentworth, (son of Olivia & Trace Wentworth) in hopes of cheering her up. But he's got a idea. A road trip. Just the two of them. Excited to spend sometime with her best friend again, Willow jumps at the chance. And they embark on one hell of a fun ride.
This book has so much that I fell in love with! Willow wade is an amazing, funny, full of life young women, looking for her place in the big crazy world. She wants wild adventures, and she discovers some of that with Dean and the open road. Dean Wentworth, sexy, nerdy, Dean. He's happy with his life, with his job, and his family. But one thing he didn't know he was missing, is something he finds with Willow. After reading and falling completely in love with this book, I want a wild adventure. To go on a road trip with no exact destination in mind. Willow and Dean's story is full of family, friendship, and love. But it's also about finding yourself, breaking out of your comfort zone, living life and going a little crazy.
I laughed so much through this book. Willow is every bit as funny as her dad. (Maddox once again made me laugh with his crazy ways) She is such a fun, new take on a book heroine. Sigh... Dean! Do i love this man, (not as much as Trace, he's still my number one guy) he is so dorky & loving. Plus he plays the guitar ;) His instinct is to protect Willow, to make her happy. He shows her that he will always believe in her. He is defiantly a swoon worthy guy. Willow pushes Dean to let loose and do something spontaneous or crazy. She makes him see things in a new way.
Some things that will always remind of this amazing story & make me laugh or smile,
Micalea I am so excited to read whatever you write next. The Road That Leads To Us will be a classic. Something that I will come back to read again and again when I'm craving a little adventure.
