On the Way to You
Kandi Steiner
November 16, 2016

From the bestselling author of Weightless, A Love Letter to Whiskey, and Revelry 

What makes you happy?

That was the question Emery Reed asked me the day we met, and I couldn’t give him a single answer. I could have said my dog, or my books, or yoga — but I just stared.

And then, I got in his car.

It was crazy to take a road trip with a stranger, but after years of standing still, he was my one-way ticket to a new life, and I wasn’t going to miss it.

We shared the same space, the same car, the same hotel room — and still, we were strangers. One day we’d be laughing, the next, we wouldn’t speak. Emery was surrounded by impenetrable walls, but I wanted in.

Discovering his journal changed everything.

I read his thoughts, words not meant for anyone’s eyes, and the more I learned about him, the harder I fell. It turned out nothing made Emery Reed happy, and I wanted to change that.

I earned his trust by violating his privacy, and as wrong as it was, it worked — until one entry revealed a darkness I never knew existed, a timer I never knew was ticking.

Suddenly, what made me happy was saving Emery from himself. I just didn’t know if I could.

I always feel like I try to brace myself before starting a Kandi Steiner book. To prepare for the heartache that I am sure to feel. Nothing in the world could’ve prepared me for Emery and Cooper’s story. I was intrigued from the first chapter ( I rarely read blurbs so I didn’t know what the story was about). Their meeting and initial connection was unconventional to say the least. Cooper obviously had a rough life, and I was anticipating getting to the root of her story. What I was not expecting was Emery’s story. With each layer of his secrets slowly and carefully revealed, I found my heart physically hurting for him. His story is so prevalent in today’s world, yet is still something that people don’t like to discuss. It’s an important topic and Steiner handles it perfectly with grace and realism in her writing.

I really liked that it was a slow burn between the two of them, and that everyday brought about the unknown. Their journey (literally and figuratively ) had me reading at a furious pace. I was desperate to know how their story would end, but when it did I was dying for more. This is by far one of my top reads for 2017! If you like angst, or heartbreak, or healing, or books or words in general I can’t reccomend this book enough! 5 stars and Heartbreak to drink with this one! Enjoy!
