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.

Amazing isn’t a big enough word for this book! This is my third novel by Kandi Steiner and it is by far my favorite. All of her books are stellar, with poetic phrases and words that meld into one another so beautifully. But this was different. This took me to that special place reserved for a rare few, those stories that take hold of my body and turn me inside out with emotion. I can never pinpoint why a book moves me so much, all I can do is accept it and love all over it for making me feel such a way. On The Way To You hit me hard and lifted me up in ways I can’t explain, it was special and I will always remember the feeling I had while reading it. Definitely in my top five of 2017!
I felt like I was exploring all of these beautiful places and meeting these interesting characters along the way. Like I was right there on the road with Cooper and Emery. I smelled the smells and saw the sights and it really was perfect and kind of surreal reading about them traveling during the Fall while it was actually Fall outside! That odd little similarity really added to my personal reading experience.
I loved everything about this book. First kisses, dog kisses, nicknames, the angst, the bad days, the good days, the secrets, the inner demons. ALL of it. One specific moment that Cooper had moved me so much. It was just a moment that she had with herself, but it was so relatable and I don’t know why but I just lost it, and I fell into that moment with her. She wasn’t even speaking any words, and it was really powerful. I love when a character can move me with their inner dialogue. The writing is just brilliant. Devastating and wonderful all at once.
This is a must read, and I can’t rave about it enough. I cried all the tears for so many different reasons and when I came out on the other end I felt exhausted and satisfied and I was talking to myself A LOT. I do that whenever I finish a great book, that’s how I know how it was great. And then I just sat there and sobbed for what seemed like forever, and then I read the authors note and cried some more. But they were good tears. Healthy tears. Tears that didn’t have a home until I finished this book. Kandi, thank you for writing this story. It changed me, and I didn’t know I needed it until it was in my hands making me feel all sorts of ways. Next time I’m on the road with the windows down this will be the first thing I think of. Your words are beautiful and I just want everyone to READ THIS BOOK!
About the Author:Kandi Steiner is a Creative Writing and Advertising/Public Relations graduate from the University of Central Florida living in Tampa. Kandi works full time as a social media specialist, but also works part time as a Zumba fitness instructor and blackjack dealer. Kandi started writing back in the 4th grade after reading the first Harry Potter installment. In 6th grade, she wrote and edited her own newspaper and distributed to her classmates. Eventually, the principal caught on and the newspaper was quickly halted, though Kandi tried fighting for her “freedom of press.” She took particular interest in writing romance after college, as she has always been a die hard hopeless romantic (like most girls brought up on Disney movies). When Kandi isn’t working or writing, you can find her reading books of all kinds, talking with her extremely vocal cat, and spending time with her friends and family. She enjoys beach days, movie marathons, live music, craft beer and sweet wine – not necessarily in that order.
