The Map to You by Lindy Zart

They both had secrets that could drive people apart—or bring them together forever . . .
Keeping his inner demons at bay means Blake Malone has more than enough trouble on his plate. He doesn’t need any extra complications. But that’s exactly what he gets when, on his way to North Dakota, he leaves his truck unattended—and returns to find a beautiful woman sleeping in the front seat.
Opal Allen seems to have a knack for attracting trouble. Which is why she isn’t about to tell her new road trip companion the real reason she needs to hightail it out of town. But Blake has a way of seeing right through her, which is both terrifying and exhilarating. Now her biggest problem is figuring out how to resist their undeniable attraction. Because once this road trip is over, she plans on never seeing Blake again.
But the best adventures don’t go according to plan.

Lindy Zart always writes beautiful stories with a lot of heart. Her novels progress at a nice steady pace giving the reader just what we need for the storyline to develop. Her books give you tears as well as laughter. The Map To You follows the pattern perfectly. The main characters, Blake and Opal, happen on an unlikely road trip. It turns into quite the adventure where both try to find themselves and overcome their demons. They are both on this unconventional journey to find their "home" or rightful place in the vast world. As feelings flare, what will happen when they must part ways? This is the much anticipated Roomies spin off. The Map To You can completely stand alone. But for those already familiar with Blake and his history, you will not want to miss this one. I would recommend reading Roomies first just because I loved that book as well but you do not need to in order to read this one. Overall, another great novel from Lindy Zart tackling some tough topics with tact and tenacity.

When Blake leaves his truck unattended for just a little bit. Who would've thought once he opens the front door why is there a young woman in the front seat sleeping. Of course Blake has no intentions of being around whomever this woman is. Though he opens his heart since he saw the look on her face that says HELP. He takes Opal on a little adventure. One thing Blake wants to do is get rid of his inner demons. First he wants to figure out who this woman is. i fell in love with Opal. She is spontaneous,quirky, AND LOVES FOOD! She is the right person for Blake to help him fight the inner demons that he's been wanting to unleash. When Blake gets to know her she opens his heart in so many ways. He has an attraction towards her like he's never had before. He doesn't know if it's a good thing, but he's able to find out by just being there with her on the journey that lies ahead of the two of them. Opal loves what Blake has, because she falls In love with this house he has and just wishes that she can stay there forever. House she wants to stay the peacefulness that's surrounding her. She knows that forever wouldn't workout. She has to do what her number one goal was to see Paisley make sure she's safe. Who knows if the trip really gets them together ? It took me so long to find a book to read. Being picky reader this was definitely the one. I bought it at 10pm-and didn't realize I finished it at 2am ! Thank you this book is just what I need!

When Blake leaves his truck unattended for just a short while the last thing he expects is finding someone inside when he gets back. However, there's a young woman asleep in the front seat. Blake doesn't want any company, but she looks like she needs his help, so he offers her a ride. Blake has his own demons to fight and he knows Opal will be trouble. He can't leave her behind though and takes her on a journey, will this be a good decision? Opal is running from something and she doesn't have much money. She is exhausted when she meets Blake and she can't tell him why she's in his truck. She also can't lie to him, because Blake seems to know exactly what she's thinking. Opal likes Blake, but she isn't ready to be involved with someone. What will they do once they reach their destination? Will Opal eventually be safe or does she have an uncertain future ahead of her and what about Blake, is it fair to include him in her plans? The Map to You is a wonderful romantic story. I immediately loved Opal. She's quirky, spontaneous and she has the great capacity to completely be herself. She's endearing and sweet and it's hard for Blake to resist her charms. Blake is a good guy struggling with depression, he's trying to fight the demons of his past and he's unsure about his future. Lindy Zart describes his problems in a beautiful realistic way. Blake could use some lightness in his life and Opal is exactly what he needs. He offers Opal safety and stability in return, which makes their relationship interesting from the start. They meet in an unusual way, they have plenty of sparks, their banter is fantastic and their connection is original, which is something I absolutely loved. Lindy Zart has written a creative love story with many fascinating twists and turns. I often had a smile on my face when I read about Opal, she's funny and gives the story a terrific feelgood factor. I liked that it's being combined with two deep emotional histories. Both Opal and Blake had a complicated childhood, something that moved me and made me feel like I could get close to them through understanding everything about them. I love it when an author achieves that. The Map to You is a versatile enchanting story with plenty of charm and character.

10+++ stars! Blake & Opal's story is full of heart and humor, and also some heartache. All of it is wonderfully told and an absolute joy to read! I was sucked in from the beginning & didn't want to put it down. I had some trouble getting into & connecting w/ Kennedy & Graham in Roomies, and wasn't such a big Blake fan in that story, either. But something about him tugged at my heart, and I was SUPER excited that he was getting his own story! He's broody on the outside, but a big ol' softie on the inside, and Opal is absolutely perfect for him. She makes him smile, and laugh, and cracks open the heart he thinks he doesn't have. She is feisty & spunky & sassy & I adore her! This story has found it's way to my top reads of the year!! : )

The Map To You is a least likely romance. Blake and Opal have both had very hard lives. Blake's made a lot of devastating mistakes in his life and he struggles with depression and addiction. Opal is on the run from her past with no place to run to. From the moment they meet there is a deep connection. Their souls recognize the broken pieces in each other. I found myself completely consumed by these two characters. They touched my heart and soul. I laughed and I cried a lot. Most importantly, I could not stop reading this book! This story touches on some very important subjects that need to be brought into the light and talked about more often .

The map to you is a very interesting story between two very broken people. They both have a lot of baggage from past. But the difference is that Black is still caught up in the dark when Opal is a ray of sunshine and although her life was and still is hard she can find something good in all the bad. Black and Opal meet in very strange unusual circumstance and although their first interaction can be their last they end up traveling together. On the road, they start to reveal a little bit of their true self and past and in the way is liberating especially for Black. I liked both of them they were unique in their way. All the past and previous decision had led them to who they are today and what I see is two good persons with a caring heart. Unusual but a great read. I volunteered to review an ARC of this book for Netgelly

This was such a good story so full of emotion, heartbreak and love. I really enjoyed it! For one seemingly so flawed, Blake is just so lovable. I couldn't help but just want and hope for the very best for him to finally find happiness and contentment. Opal has the ability to be/do that for him. Even though she has baggage of her own she shines like the sun and brings that to her relationship with Blake. He needs her light. I love them together! They get along so well and have incredible chemistry. This is my first Lindy Zart book and it won't be my last. She is such a gifted storyteller.
