Ella used to be a rule-breaker with fiery attitude who wore her heart on her sleeve. But she left everything behind when she went to college and transformed into someone that follows the rules, keeps everything together, and hides all her problems. But now it’s summer break and she has nowhere else to go but home.
Ella fears everything she worked so hard to bury might resurface, especially with Micha living right next door. If Micha tries to tempt the old her back, she knows that it will be hard to resist.
Micha is sexy, smart, confident, and can get under Ella’s skin like no one else can. He knows everything about her, including her darkest secrets. And he’s determined to bring his best friend, and the girl he loves back, no matter what it takes.
The Good: Ella and Micha have a great chemistry straight from the get go. I love that their relationship stems from a deep history. The depth of their feelings for one another can be felt through the pages. The romance is built on a solid foundation and reads at a quick pace.
The Bad: The relationship between Ella and her mother could’ve been expanded upon. This would’ve given Ella even more depth as a character.
Recommendation: Fans of Beautiful Disaster by Jamie McGuire or Easy by Tamara Webber will enjoy Ella and Micha’s story.
