The Secret of Ella & Micha begins with a Prologue that totally blows you and your heart away. We find Ella Daniels, as high as a kite, contemplating whether she can fly as she is standing on the ledge of a bridge. Ella’s best friend and soul mate, as she describes him, comes to her rescue and you recognize that you are meeting two people who are completely connected to each other. As Micha begins to confess his love Ella silences him with a kiss and then walks away disappearing from his life, and hers, for the next eight months.
Micha has been trying to track Ella down for eight months and is finally surprised to see her pull up into her driveway one day with her college roommate, Lila, on her summer break from school. Taking back up where he left off Micha is on a quest to reconnect with Ella as not only her best friend but he is also trying to prove to her that they are meant to be more. Ella comes home basically because she has to and finds herself fighting a losing battle to maintain the facade she had built up about her perfect new life. Her roommate Lila doesn’t even know about Micha, Ella's drunk father or her dead mother.
The Secret of Ella & Micha is such a compelling story of overcoming painful pasts and maintaining beautiful friendships.
Character Descriptions:: Ella- The girl who used to be bad. She loved having fun and pushing the limits but due to her mothers death, and what she feels is her part in it, she has become scared of herself and has been running from her old life.
Micha- He makes a lip ring seem so super sexy! Even with his own sad upbringing he is the rock that tried to keep Ella steady. He loves Ella fiercely and will do anything to prove it to her. He’s a wanna be rock star and drag racing fool :)
Lila- College roommate of Ella’s who drives her home for the summer and stays on for a few days. Lila is completely in the dark about Ella’s past. She is a somewhat stuck up rich girl with a sweet heart.
Ethan- Micha’s wingman. Ethan has tired of Micha’s preoccupation with trying to find Ella. He seems to hold a secret from the past and is possibly becoming smitten with Lila.
Final Thoughts: This is a must read New Adult Contemp Romance! I was hooked from the first page wanting to see Ella and Micha hook up and wanting to get all the details behind “The Secret” of Ella and Micha. My favorite part of the story was the friendship between Ella and Micha. Micha was the kind of friend that you want when you’re growing up and going through all of the trials and tribulation of youth.
Jessica has written an amazing story and I am looking forward to continuing the story in ‘The Forever of Ella and Micha’
