I really loved this book! It is one of those books that you race through to continually get to the next chapter. As I was reading, I was constantly wondering about what would happen next and my mind was alive with questions...What happened to make Ella leave? What are her thoughts about coming back? Will she be pleased to see Micha? What will happen now she's returning home?
In The Secret Of Ella and Micha, the book is written from two different points of view - there are Ella's chapters, and there are Micha's chapters. Personally I really liked his as sometimes the same scene would be written how Ella sees it, then it would switch to Micha's part and I could see how Micha interpreted the scenario and what was going on before him. I think this helped me to warm to the characters easier as I could read about their individual thoughts and feelings, and as I could see what they were both feeling about the same thing, I felt as though I was sharing a a secret as I had the full picture of what was happening.
Jessica Sorenson has done a fantastic job of creating real, true-to-life characters. Ella and Micha aren't perfect, they have their secrets, they have their flaws, and they have their downsides, but that is what makes them such compelling characters to read about! They are real, they face true issues that other teenagers out there may also be going through and they are entirely relateable. The book was so realistic that I genuinely cared about them throughout the book and so always wanted to read on to know what was going to happen to them next.
The Secret Of Ella and Micha is a gripping, addictive read full of passion, desire, secrets, friendship, family, guilt, and love. It is a story that will be constantly on your mind when you are away from it, and will have you itching to get back to the next part. I am ever so excited for Jessica's future releases!
The book's prologue hooks you in straight away - you are left wondering what on earth is going on to make Ella act in such a way, and you can also feel Micha's love for her. After that short prologue, the book suddenly jumps 8 months into the present day where we pick up the story and stay with it for the rest of the book. The book is told through two first person narratives, Ella's and then Micha's, and it continues this way up until the end, and I really enjoyed this. It allowed me to get really into the story of both of these people, and we're given different perspectives of what happens as well. Despite Ella's initial hesitance at getting close to Micha, you can tell she has deep feelings for him however she might appear, and I was left just waiting for her to finally give in to Micha and to her feelings. Ella was quite a closed book, and things are slowly revealed about her past which allow us to make sense of why she's such a introverted person and wanting to hide who she used to be.
Micha is a fabulous male lead, and he's everything you want to read about in a hot male lead! He sounds rather attractive, with his pierced lip, he's a musician (of course), and likes to drive cars - fast. He is deeply in love with Ella and wants her more than anything, and is hating the fact she is turning him down. Yes, he's a bad boy but he's so much more than that too, and Ella really brings out a different side of him. Micha has a bit of a back story with his family too, and I felt more sympathetic to him as the book went on. I especially liked his scenes when he's driving his fast cars - Sorensen writes the action and the excitement so well that you feel like you're in there with them, feeling the adrenaline pumping as Ella does. Sorensen writes the sexual tension between Ella and Micha so well, you can really feel it as you're reading, and I was left wanting them just to get on with it because you can see how much they want each other, no matter how much Ella might try and deny it, and Micha's way of wooing her is pretty great lol, however did she resist?!
I was only around a 1/4 of the way through the book when I began reading it Sunday night, and I ended up staying awake until gone 2am to finish it, because I became so absorbed with their story that I couldn't put it down. I loved everything about this story, from the way Sorensen builds up the tension and the story between Ella and Micha, and also how she weaves in their pasts, especially Ella's to fully round off their tales. I liked the inclusion of Ella's college roommate Lila who is there to show us how different the Ella of now is compared to the one she was pretending to be at college, and I loved her shocked reactions to some of the things Ella does. It's a real love story that will draw you in and have you turning the pages until you reach the final one because you're desperately craving a happy ending for Ella and Micha. I'm thrilled to see that there is another book with Ella and Micha coming later this summer, and I can't wait to catch up with these two once again. Jessica Sorensen took me by complete surprise with this book, and I can't recommend it highly enough. Now where can I find me my own Micha?!
