Slow burny in the best way and packed with UST
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I wanted to thump Parker a lot of the time in this book, but I also wanted to give him a fluffy blanket and tell him it would be okay 🤣
Road to You is a well written second chance romance coupled with a best friend’s brother and childhood friends trope.
It relies perhaps a tiny bit too much on using flashbacks to give insights into Parker and Jason’s past lives but it’s a difficult path to travel narratively if the reader doesn’t have this information in some way or another.
That said, there aren’t hundreds of them and what there is, are used to highlight a specific memory or give a particular insight into why Parker behaves as he does.
Jason was a more sympathetic character from the off because the reader knows he’s sorry and regretting the single mistake he made at a critical time in their past.
He’s seeking forgiveness from the start and doing all he can to get Parker to see how much he regrets what he did.
There’s no other drama, every tension point comes from Parker’s vulnerability and the plot moves along at a reasonable pace.
This book overlaps into the same timeframe as the last two in the series, but only by a small amount.
It’s a slow burn, but has some wonderfully intimate moments once Parker admits he’s still in love and willing to risk his heart again.
