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.
Due to a tragic event her life is turned upside down, we follow their journey as Ella struggles to be in control of the new person she created.The romance between Ella and Micha was sweet and steamy. I loved how Micha kept trying to bring his best friend back, one of my favourite situations in the book is that there was no insta-love, they've known each other forever and the feelings between them grew at normal speed.
The story is told from dual POV's. I liked Micha's POV, it portrayed his strong personality and with their difficult backgrounds made me realise that even if they talk more about love what makes this story enjoyable is the friendship that developed between all of them. The secondary characters Lila and Ethan were charming in their own way and I'm actually looking forward to know more about Lila's story.
The Secret of Ella and Micha is the first book I've read by Jessica Sorensen It held my interest enough to finish but there was no big reveal and that's the main reason I didn't gave this book more stars I expected more conflict. Overall I enjoyed the interaction between the main characters.
