Road to Nowhere is a spin-off from the fabulous Good Ol’Boys series. You do not need to have read these books or indeed El Diablo which is the previous book in this spin-off series, however I recommend you do. All these books have been 5 Crown reads for me, and you will be invested in the characters immediately if you have read them all.

Creed Jameson’s life has been mapped out for him whether he likes it or not. Born into an MC, his father is the President of the Devil’s Rejects and expects all 3 of his sons to fall into line. The darkness he has experienced is not what he wants for his life, or for the lives of his 2 younger brothers. He watches his mother suffer at the hands of his philandering father and tries to protect them by exposing himself to the life he hates even more. The Fog of his life continues to get denser as one tragedy after another follows him. But one little girl always make the sun shine through.

Mia is the youngest of 3 siblings and the only girl. Even at 9 years old she feels suffocated by her overbearing and protective father and envious of the freedoms her older brothers Bo and Mason get. When she meets one of her oldest brother’s best friends, he fascinates her. She is drawn to the sadness that drips off him. Everyone says she has the ability to be everyone’s friend and she is determined to be Creed’s.

And so begins an innocent friendship that continues for years. Until one day things change for them both.

So I have literally been on tender hooks for this book since the brief introduction to Creed and Mia in the latter part of El Diablo. I am not going to say anything about that, however if you have taken my advice and read the previous books you will know exactly what I mean. This book goes way back to the beginning of their relationship. This is very much Creed’s story with snippets of a young, innocent, frustrated girl who is mature beyond her age and who harbours a crush on the much older man. Don’t be getting your panties in a twist, it is a very innocent and sweet friendship. Creed doesn’t look at Mia in any other way than a cute little girl who understands him way more than she should.

So anyone that has read Monica’s books will know we can always look forward to a full backstory to the characters and that they tend to be told over several or many years. So major things happen along the way that have massive impacts on Creed’s life and how he deals with his MC as well as the issues with his family. I loved him. He is a total bad boy, but one that would so love to be good. He feels he will never be good enough for anyone and he is very destructive with the choices he makes. But he is also a good man at heart, if only someone can pull that out of him. As for Mia, well it was lovely to see her grow into a young woman on the cusp of becoming an adult. The crush she has on Creed never dies, even though sometimes it can be years between seeing him. But it is not until she reaches 15 that she decides that she needs to open up to him, even if it may result in breaking her heart.

Bit of a warning. As I got closer and closer to the end I had a funny feeling in my gut. The book was either going to be rushed at the end to conclude their story or it was going to end on a cliffhanger. Now anyone that loves M. Robinson’s books as much as I do will know that there is no way she could rush a storyline, it just isn’t her style. So alas, it does mean you get the dreaded “To Be Continued….” Arghhh!!!!

There are so many twists and turns in this beautifully written book and lots of questions I need answers to. Monica assures readers we won’t be left hanging for too long and I believe her. This is one author who never lets me down with her stories, and I may be hating her a little bit now, but in the best possible way. Her stories kick arse, and Mia and Creed’s story isn’t one that could be kept to one book.

 

Another great story from this very talented writer. If you haven’t already, you MUST read her books.

El Diablo is book 1 in a spin-off series of the brilliant Good Ol’ Boys. You do not need to have read that series, however I personally feel it is essential to at least read Crave Me, as Martinez is introduced and plays an integral part in that book.

They call him the Devil and indeed he believes himself to be exactly that. But are people born bad? Or is it our environment that determines the paths our lives will take? This is Alejandro Martinez’s story. From his innocent teenage years, we follow him as he meets the destiny his Mob father has set for him. He rules with an iron fist, is feared and hated as much as he is respected in the underworld he presides over. But it is one woman who will be his biggest challenge. So the question is how can he love an angel when he belongs in hell.

Lexi has had a dismal life thus far. She dreams of becoming a ballerina, but the journey has been a sad and unhappy one. When she meets the older, handsome and enigmatic Martinez, she embarks on a relationship that will span many years. She is well aware of the danger that surrounds him, but she only see’s the light. He becomes her saviour, but also her worst nightmare.

And that is where I leave my overview. I could write and write on. This is such a twisting and turning story which throws up surprises, but will also answers questions we had about Martinez from Crave Me. So all I will say is that there are always 2 sides to a story. We got Brigg’s version of her Uncle, now we get his side and man is it bloody good!

So I must admit that I was unsure whether I would enjoy this book. Not because I don’t LOVE M. Robinson’s work, because believe me after reading the original Good Ol’ Boys series she has become a favourite author of mine. No, my concern was the main protagonist. As I have already said, he plays a major part in Austin and Brigg’s story in Crave Me and I came out of that book laying a lot of blame for the problems they had to battle at his feet. I was unsure if he would be redeemable, if he deserved his HEA. But M. Robinson plays this story like a concert pianist plays his Steinway grand piano. You will love him and hate him over and over again. In Lexi he has found the chink in his proverbial armour. She challenges him, doesn’t fear him and sees him for the good and the really bad. But will his need to protect her end up breaking both their hearts? Well I will leave that for you to find out.

Happily I can tell you that we also get to see the Good Ol’ Boys and the way their lives have moved on. I am guessing we will be seeing a little more of them in November when Creed the next book in this spin-off series is released.

To M. Robinson, Your stories are masterpieces. I love how your minds works, but more than that I love the way it keeps one step ahead of the readers. You lady are a twisted genius and I can’t wait for the next instalment.

 

To my fellow book lovers. If you are yet to read any stories by M. Robinson, get 1-clicking or you really are missing out.
