The Forever of Ella and Micha by Jessica Sorensen
Ella is back at school, trying to focus on her future and forget the darkness of her past. Still, her ongoing family drama is making it harder and harder to get through the days. All she really wants is Micha, but no way will she let her problems get in the way of his dreams.
Micha is busy touring the country with his band, seemingly getting everything he's ever wanted. But deep down he knows something is missing. Being away from Ella is harder than he expected. And while he longs to have her with him, he won't ask her to leave college just to be at his side.
When Ella and Micha are together, anything seems possible . . . but lately those shared moments aren't so easy to find. When a new tragedy shakes their already fragile world, one of them will make a dramatic choice that could break them apart forever . . .
** This is the sequel to The Secret of Ella and Micha so if you haven't read it and don't want any spoilers to the first book please stop reading. You can check out my review of The Secret of Ella and Micha by clicking HERE. **
Some readers are extremely patient when it comes to waiting for sequels or more of a series... I am NOT one of those people so I have to say when The Forever of Ella and Micha got pushed back I had mixed feelings.... I was THRILLED for Jessica Sorensen because the reason on why the release was pushed back is AWESOME... but I was bummed because I was so anxious to see what was next for Ella and Micha AND I was more anxious for more of Jessica Sorensen's work because she's another author who sucks me in emotionally!
We watched Ella begin to come back to herself in The Secret of Ella and Micha. She had a lot of emotional struggles and was forced to grow up entirely too fast. She grew in book one but by no means was she fixed. In all honesty I was expecting to read some light, fluffy, sweet romantic book about how perfect Ella and Micha's lives were now that they are together.... but that is NOT what I read. There was still a lot that Ella needed to do for herself emotionally and unfortunately because she had years of holding her emotions in and needed to find a safe healthy way to let them out. She gets that in this book. Don't get me wrong, she more than made me mad a few times and I had to remind myself of how damaged emotionally she really is... but when she finally lets go... it's like she's this beautiful flower that you just can't help but notice how truly beautiful she is.
I fell in absolute LOVE with Micha in The Secret of Ella and Micha and if it's even possible I feel even more in love with him in The Forever of Ella and Micha. He is exactly what Ella needs and she is exactly what he needs. He's got his fair share of problems and when he's forced to actually face the main reason behind the problems he's got he numbs the pain.
These two are so undeniably perfect for each other and they have that once in a lifetime love that you just know, no matter what, they will make it through anything. And they will... but that doesn't mean that things are easy and there isn't a ton of heartbreak along the road.
Fan's of The Secret series definitely need to check out The Forever of Ella and Micha! She takes you on this roller coaster ride of emotions that at times takes your breath away but she also shows the real side of depression and how it not only affects you but how much it affects those around you. Jessica Sorensen has this crazy awesome talent that she more than proved in The Forever of Ella and Micha!
