Review- The Secret of Ella and Micha by Jessica Sorensen


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. 


I had read a lot of great reviews about The Secret of Ella and Micha so I was really looking forward to reading it. Its a new adult contemporary romance which falls under my favorite genre. It was a book which turned out better than what I expected it to be. It was a good book.

Ella and Micha have been friends since they were kids. They are neighbours and have always been there for each other through the up and downs. Their friendship was the only thing they could hold on to and trust and rely on in difficult times. But one tragic night shatters it all.

Ella used to be a rule breaking goth who didn't care what people thought of her. With her outspoken attitude and openness she wasn't afraid to say what was on her mind. Micha had always been a player flirting and hooking up with girls as they came. But Ella was the only one who held his heart. She was the only one who could always see through him.But after that one night Ella leaves everything behind and goes to college.

 Now she's back because its summer and she has nowhere else to go. But she's transformed into a completely different person now. When she left, she left behind the outspoken Ella with her fiery attitude too. She's a girl transformed. Micha has been searching for Ella since the past eight months when she left everything including him behind. He's been pining after her. When Ella returns to town Micha is determined to bring down her facade and get his old Ella back.

Micha is the only one who could get under Ella's skin and try as she may she can't help opening up to Micha. The romance between them was sweet. Ella and Micha had chemistry and you could see how they were made for each other. We also get to meet Lila and Ethan who together make for a great cast of characters. The ending was nice but not completely satisfying. I am looking forward to The Forever of Ella and Micha where I hope they get their happily ever after.

  1. Some of my friends on Goodreads have read this book and they say it's good. I though I wouldn't like it so I didn't read it. But I like the sounds of it now and I think Ella and Micha are great characters! :) Great review Janhvi! :)

  2. I loved this book, Ella & Micha are the sweetest couple ever. I agree with the ending, I needed more. The Forever of E&M needs to come out sooner.
    Wonderful review =)

  3. I read the Coincidence of Callie and Kayden and loved it. So I'm definitely looking forward to this one.
