Even though I am in the middle of three other books, as soon as The Forever of Ella and Micha by: Jessica Sorensen was delivered at midnight last night, I had to start reading it. I was looking forward to it that much. If you haven’t read The Secret of Ella and Micha yet, check out my review here, and read it first then pick up this one. You won’t be disappointed.
Here is the description of The Forever of Ella and Micha from Goodreads:
Ella and Micha have survived tragedy and heartbreak. When they’re together, anything seems possible. But now they are thousands of miles apart, and managing their long distance relationship will put their love to the test.
Ella is back at school, trying hard not worry so much about her future. But with her father in and out of rehab, she’s having a hard time making it through the days. All she wants is Micha by her side, but she refuses to let her problems get in the way of his dreams.
Micha spends his days touring the country with his band, but deep down he knows something is missing. Being away from Ella is harder than he thought it would be. He wants her closer to him-needs her with him. But he won’t ask her to leave college, just to be with him.
The few moments they do spend together are intense and passionate, but it only makes it more difficult when they have to part. They know they want to be together, but is wanting something enough to get them to their forever?
This was one of my most anticipated books of the summer, and let me tell you, it did not disappoint.
This book starts with Micha on the road with his band and Ella missing him like crazy. She is going to school and seeing a therapist to try to work through her problems, and Micha is trying to live his dream.
Even though Ella and Micha got together in the first book, they still have a lot of issues to work out. That is what this book was about. They learned to trust each other and others, and they dealt with their demons.
Ella and Micha really are perfect together. Ella is not the typical story heroine. She is kind of punk, likes cars, and can definitely take care of herself. At the same time, she is totally believable. In a lot of stories, authors will try to make their characters fit a certain mold, and it doesn’t really work. That’s not the case with Ella. She has learned who she is and isn’t afraid to be that person. Then there’s Micha. He is perfect for Ella. He is rocker and has his own demons, but he is innately a caring person which is exactly the right fit for Ella. I guess what I’m saying is that Ms. Sorensen paired up two people who made sense together in this book. It wasn’t some unrealistic story about some perfect princess getting with some larger than life bad boy who is actually sensitive and perfect and who could never exist in real life. Ella and Micha are REAL and I think that’s what makes this story so strong.
Lila and Ethan are around. They need to quit circling each other and make a move. The tension there is killing me. I will definitely be reading their book.
The only thing I would have added to this book would be another epilogue. I would like to get a glimpse of Ella and Micha in like five or ten years. There was a 6-months-later epilogue, but I would like to get an idea of where they end up in the long run.
Anyway, get it, read it, love it. I did.
