This is the story of Ella, a character who loves Jazz but has absolutely no backbone to speak of. She is a people pleaser as she is afraid of them leaving her. Now, normally, a character like Ella would have me screaming at my Kindle to "grow a spine!" However, something about Ella drew me in. Perhaps it was the occasional glimpses of who she could be, given the right circumstances and encouragement.
Cole starts off as a bit of a player but soon falls for his 'shower girl'. The two of them not knowing who they were but in constant contact was amusing. Cole changes his mind from being a player to having an unknown girl be 'the one' for him but that is the only thing that is rushed. It progresses slowly and naturally between Cole and Ella.
David I felt sorry for. He's really not the right guy for Ella but he was there when she needed him so he's not really the bad guy of the show either. He doesn't see Ella or consider her wants but then she doesn't open her mouth either so it's not all his fault.
This was a very well-written contemporary romance between two college students as they learn who they are, what they want and how to go about getting it. I loved the ending with Ella (no spoilers) - I thought it absolutely perfect and was so happy to see it happen.
If you have read any other of Melissa Pearl's books, then you already know you are in for a treat. If you haven't - and you like new adult contemporary romance - then I can recommend you start with this one.
Another point I thought was you have no real feelings, either good or bad, about David. Seeing as he is Ella's main reason she isn't pursuing a relationship with Cole, he doesn't appear that much. I think this is deliberate by the author to hammer home how he is so focussed on his 'plan' and doesn't make the time for Ella, I feel like because of this, you don't really believe that their relationship is any sort of factor at all. Reading Ella's thoughts and feelings about David, doesn't make you feel any sympathy for the fact his girlfriend is in love with his best friend, and I didn't really care when Ella left him. Again, I feel like this could have played a bigger part in the story as a whole, and that would have had a bigger impact on me had this been expanded more.
Overall, it isn't a bad novel. It is engaging enough to keep you reading and to want a happy ending but there are aspects that could have been expanded more to make for an even more engaging plot. Also, the constant mention of Ella Fitzgerald and Louis Armstrong is just completely pointless in places. We get the idea, Melissa Pearl you love them but stop the name dropping!
No it wont!
I really enjoyed Fever, it is a gorgeous tale of love and music, Ella Simmons is our leading lady, the book starts with her upping sticks and moving all the way from LA to Chicago to join her long term boyfriend at University.
Ella is not very good at saying no to people and not wanting to disappoint her boyfriend David she starts her university courses finding it very different to what she is used to. But she owes a lot to David having lost her parents, he has been along with her two best friends an amazing rock to her. She thinks she wants to be part of his grand plan, career, marriage and children, but does her heart really want to follow his path.
Her relationship is pushed to the limits when she meets David's room mate Cole an extremely handsome charismatic young man and also when she has a in shower experience with a secret singer who joins her singing some of her favourite songs in the showers.
Singing is one of her great loves but she has never told David of her love, he hates music and dancing and as she gets closer to Cole she starts to question her relationship with David but also will she find out who the secret singer is?
Fever is an enjoyable novel with great characters and the musical element is great, The ending was brilliant too but you will just have to read it!!
Fever is awarded 4 of of 5
