"You and I, good or bad, belong together. We make each other whole."
Ella and Micha found the love they have always been missing in each other in The Secret of Ella and Micha (review here) and their story continues in The Forever of Ella and Micha.
Ella and Micha's relationship is put to the test as Ella returns to school and Micha hits the road with his band. Distance, long absences, and Ella's fears threaten to ruin their chances at a happy ending. Ella and Micha love each other, but that might not be enough to build a future.
"Most people go into this blind. They don't know the bad side of the person they are with. But we know each other's flaws and cracks - we know what we're getting into and that makes us stronger."
This is another great one from Jessica Sorensen! What I love about this story is the way Ella and Micha love each other. Soulmates is the only way that I can think to describe them. They know each other so well and accept each other, flaws and all, unconditionally. Micha is my hero in this book. Even though he has his own issues, he is so strong for Ella, so unwavering in his love. He is her rock. Ella, despite what she thinks, is perfect for Micha too. She calls him on his BS and know what he is thinking and feeling even when he's trying to hide it.
They are not perfect people and the each have a world of issues to overcome, but their love makes them stronger and better. This is what makes Ella and Micha's love story the perfect example of what true love should be. It's accepting, unconditional, unwavering, and something that doesn't force you to change, but inspires you to be a better version of yourself.
While there is no clifhanger at the end of the book, it is certainly open enough that there could be more. I know that I would love to know what the next chapter holds for Ella and Micha, but don't know if Jessica is planning on writing more. If not, I think that this book provides a satisfying conclusion to the story. I am really hoping that there will be more to come for Ella and Micha.
Coming soon is The Temptation of Lila and Ethan, a spin off novel to Ella and Micha's story. According to Goodreads, we should expect it in October, 2013, and I'm looking forward to this one! Check out the blurb below:
Ella's best friend Lila has always been a good girl who likes pretty clothes and preppy boys. But ever since the first day she met Micha's best friend Ethan, she hasn't been able to stop thinking about him. Girls have always flocked to Ethan--but never princesses like Lila. And until Lila came into his life he never wanted them to. From the outside the two couldn't seem more different, but somehow they have a connection deeper and more intense than anyone could have imagined. Can two people from such dramatically different worlds really have a love that lasts?
