I'm Rowena and I blog at Book Binge. I read lots of romance, YA and lately, NA. You'll find a lot of those on my shelves.
Ella & Micha are getting married.
Micha has loved Ella for as long as he can remember and he’s giddy with the thought of having her by his side for the rest of his life. It’s all he’s ever wanted and things are finally looking up for him because she has agreed to become his wife.
Ella wants to marry Micha, she wants it more than she thought she would. Being with Micha feels right to her but they have to do things the right way. They can’t get married hundreds of miles away from their home, from their family. So Ella does what no normal person does, she doesn’t show up for the wedding and nearly breaks the love of her life’s heart by…not communicating with him. Instead of calling him and telling him what she’s thinking, she just sits on the bed and scares the crap out of Micha…again.
All throughout this book, I was frustrated with Ella. I lost count of how many times I wanted to punch her in the throat because it’s the third book that her and Micha are featured in. She should have her shit together by now. She has already put Micha through the wringer in the previous two books, she has broken his heart more times than is probably normal and yet, it’s Book 3 and she’s STILL doing it. It drove me nuts. She drives me nuts.
And I hated how Micha treated her with baby gloves. When they weren’t having sex, that is. She was all woman when he was banging her in the bathroom, on the kitchen counter or whatever but when they’ve got their clothes on? Its all about protecting Ella..from herself. That got real old (and it was old in the last book), real fast. Micha needed to put Ella in her place, smack some damn sense into her.
I sincerely hope that this is the last book in this series. I don’t think I could handle another book featuring Micha & Ella. I first met them in The Secret of Ella & Micha and I adored the hell out of them. My heart broke for them over and over again in that book and I didn’t want to leave them behind….but now I kind of wish that I had stopped with that book because then I wouldn’t be nearly as annoyed with them as I was while reading this book.
It’s a testament to Jessica Sorensen’s writing that even when I’m annoyed to high heaven with her characters, I’m still captivated by their story. I still have to read the entire thing and fall into their world. I ate this book up and am looking forward to reading the other Ethan & Lila book but I hope to high heaven that their story ends in that one. I don’t want these characters dragged through the mud longer than they need to.
