Book: Max Colton’s Road to Wonderland
Author: H.A. Robinson
Genre: New Adult
Growing up with certain expectations and your entire life mapped out for you is never easy, but when the bar is set impossibly high, most would give up.
Not Max Colton.
Even as a child, his father is unrelenting. Discipline, rules and rigid control are all he knows. Nothing Max does is good enough, and no matter how hard he works, approval and recognition are always just out of reach.
From boarding school to university, Max gets a glimpse of the freedom he’s always been denied, and learns unexpected things about himself along the way. When he somehow finds himself thrust back under his father’s iron rod of control, that freedom proves harder to let go of than he anticipated and he finds himself caught in a balancing act between his lifelong battle for his father’s approval and living out his own hopes and dreams.
With loves found and lost and his friends at his side, Max has to navigate through the world one step at a time. People aren’t always as they seem, and every stone unturned reveals a new challenge, bringing him closer to a future that has always seemed elusive and uncertain.
A future that holds success, freedom and love he never expected to have.
A future that will offer loyal friends and a home that isn’t confined to a building.
A future that leads him to Wonderland.
I cannot say enough how much I love this entire series. Each book and each character is written so well that it feels like you are reading your favorite binge worthy series on Netflix. Max Colton is just the newest installment of what has become one of my favorite series of all time.
Max Colton is the type of character you love from the first page to the last. From his struggles as an awkward child with a stutter in boarding school, to the successful adult that always tried to break free from his overbearing father, there wasn’t a moment that I didn’t want to reach through my kindle and hug him. He becomes a part of you.
Throughout the entire story you really get a sense that something is missing from Max’s life. His childhood shaped him and while he can be satisfied for a time, there is still something missing. Does he want normalcy? I think he wants it a bit more than he lets on. I think more than anything, he wants the chance to be Max Colton. He really taps in to that feeling of parental guilt as well. You know what I mean, the one where you are guilted in to things even though you really want to stand up and shout NO! He tries so hard to forge his own path, and I think in a lot of ways he succeeds.
I never wanted Max’s story to end and I hope we see him again in future installments of this series. The only negative thing I can honestly say is that I wanted more. This book could have been as long as War and Peace and still not been enough, that’s how much I love Max Colton.
This book gets 5 kisses from me and comes very highly recommended from yours truly
H. A. Robinson is a jet-setting billionaire with a home on each continent, who spends her free time saving kittens from trees and babies from burning buildings. A graduate of Hogwarts and a frequent visitor to Narnia, she drinks coffee in Central Perk and tames dragons in Westeros.
In her dreams…
In reality, she’s a support worker living in a small town in Cheshire, who would almost always choose fantasy over reality. She’s been an obsessive reader from the moment she picked up her first Enid Blyton book, more years ago than she cares to admit, and enjoys nothing more than getting lost in new worlds and adventures from the minds of all the amazing authors out there.
She’s had the voices of characters in her head for as long as she can remember, and puts them down on paper in order to convince herself and the men in white coats that she isn’t crazy.
