Review - The Secret of Ella and Micha by Jessica Sorensen

 *** This book contains mature content.  Strongly recommended for 17 and over

Ella and Micha have been best friends since they were kids. But one tragic night shatters their friendship and their lives forever.

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. 

My Summary

Ella and Micha have been friends since childhood. They have shared many moments and have secrets no one else knows. When Ella's mother commits suicide Ella is destroyed and the guilt is nearly driving her crazy. One night as she was sulking in remorse and the concern that she might be manic depressive just like her mother she does something really stupid. 

At that precise moment Micha comes to save her just as he always does but they cross that friendship line that has save them from regret. Scared Ella leaves her town leaving everyone wondering where she went. She didn't tell her father, brother or even Micha.

Eight months later Ella comes back to town with her new roommate. She has been away at college but no one knows this except for new best friend who also has no idea of her past. Ella has been hiding from her past but not for long as a school break pushes her back into the arms of her scary past.

My Summary

I absolutely love stories that pull me in right away and that amazing cover is beautiful.  I was sucked into the story after the first page wanting to know what Ella's secret was and this boy that had been her life Micha.   When Ella returns to town their first encounter is filled with sexual tension and angst it was like waiting for an explosion to happen.  Phew! I was so invested in this story it was crazy.

Micha is dark and intriguing a bad boy with a secret. Who doesn't like bad boys. What I loved about this story is who it kept me guessing what had happened in the past that had pushed our Ella to hide and changes so drastically

The characters introduction was perfect you get to know everyone in the story and what has happened to them they all are key instruments in our story. It has a lot of elements that made it a page turner and of course I read it in one day could not put it down.

I give this story 5 hearts
