BOOK REVIEW: The Secret of Ella and Micha by Jessica Sorensen (The Secret #1)

Publication Date: October 4, 2012
Synopsis (Goodreads):
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. 


The Secret of Ella and Micha is one of those books which didn't give me a hard time from reading it. I just read through the book without even realizing it's almost over.

I love everything about it! I can't help but fall in love with each character. It was fun, hot, sexy and heart-warming.

Ella went through a lot so she decided to change her image and run away from her past. Even when that means leaving the people she cares about. But when she came back to her hometown after 8 months, she reconnects to her past. Will she be able to put up with the mask she's wearing? Or will she go back to being the girl she left behind?

Ella is someone you'll learn to love. You can really understand where she's coming from as the author unravels her story. Micha is your typical bad boy. I love how he can be so real, loyal and sweet. He's got a bad boy vibe but the truth is, he's genuinely a good guy and son. He's so vulnerable in terms of Ella which makes me love him even more. I love how he can be so patient and caring. Ahh...I'm in love!

I have to commend how the author narrated the lives of Ella and Micha, from the past and present without changing the pace of the story. And how can I forget to mention the cover? Hmmm-mmm! 

The Secret of Ella and Micha is a fast-paced read which made me laugh, sad, cry and overwhelmed with emotions. If you're into Contemporary Romance, you most definitely should read this one! 


Memorable Quote:

“Just because it's broken doesn't mean it loses its importance. And i figured i'd give it to you one day when you realized it was okay to make mistakes.”
