Title: The Secret of Ella & Micha
Author: Jessica Sorensen
Genre: New Adult Contemporary
Publication Date: October 4, 2012

Blurb:

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.
Author Note: *Mature Content** Recommended for ages 17+ due to sexual situations and language


It's only been a couple of weeks ago that I reviewed my first Jessica Sorensen book, Ember. I loved it so much when the tour invite for The Secret of Ella & Micha showed up in my inbox, I checked yes immediately. The synopsis pulled me in, but that cover...HOT!

This book is raw, edgy, and emotional. I flew through it in one sitting because I had to know Ella and Micha's secret. Jessica did a phenomenal job of building the intensity throughout the book and throwing just enough information out there to force those pages to keep turning. Micha is swoon-worthy in his almost reformed bad boy ways, and Ella really sucks at keeping her perfect girl facade in place anytime Micha glances her way. Honestly, I like the say-it-like-it-is, cause a little trouble, outspoken, and broken Ella much better than the pretentious, control freak Ella. Let this be said...you should never be someone you're not! It won't only eat at you, but nobody ever buys that crap anyway. :-)

Ella and Micha grew up as neighbors and bonded over juice boxes then beer and car races. Ella never minded diving under a hood and getting a little grease under her nails, as long as there was fun to be had. Now, I'm going to tell you, this story reminded me a little of my own teenagerhood. (Yes, I make up words because I can.) Small town, nothing to do, neighbor who liked to work on cars and always had a beer or two, and a stretch of road perfect for racing cars...just ask my sister. Hehe. But, that's where the similarities end.

Ella's home life leaped several borders straight into the land of just plain jacked up. Finally, a single event pushed her over the edge and she ran from home, from all her friends, her family, but mostly as far away from Micha as she could manage. She got hurt and she hurt a lot of people, but Micha never gave up hope. He hunted for her everyday for eight months until she unexpectedly pulled up at her parents house. Now, he had only one mission, to win her heart.

I love edgy, dark stories revolving around broken girls and semi-bad boys. The Secret of Ella & Micha pulled at my heart. Jessica's storytelling skills are amazing. She pulled me right into all the wrong in Ella's life, then gave me a glimpse into the hope of Micha's life. I'm a sucker for dual POVs and Jessica mastered this one. I will warn you, this isn't a fun and light-hearted read. Both Ella and Micha have some very real family issues. Life wasn't easy for either, but they're headed in the right direction and both show a great amount of growth and maturity during the story. 

As noted above, this is for mature readers. Contains underage drinking, language, and sexual situations.

*I obtained a free copy of The Secret of Ella & Micha from the author in exchange for my honest and unbiased review. I have never met, formally or informally, with Jessica Sorensen.
