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?
Is it possible to love someone so much that you would hold on even if they are letting go?
Micha is finding out the answer to this question in this book. I was getting increasingly frustrated with Ella because in my eyes Micha is perfect. He is caring, compassionate, patient and loves Ella unconditionally. What more could anyone ask for?
While I understood what Ella means, and I applaud her for wanting to "fix" herself, I was like can you do that while letting this wonderful man that he is everything to you? It is hard to look at yourself and see that you in fact broken and need mending. To look at your flaws and know that without help it will in the long run ruin you and those you love. I think I just felt like Micha was there and Ella should have held on to that as well. Lila and Ethan are the quintessential BFF's and I adore them. So glad they got their own book.
Love/relationships is never an easy thing, there are many ups and downs. When I read this, that is what I thought. I love the way Jessica writes because it pulls all of my feelings and tugs at them. Making me see things even within myself that I can change for the better.
Jessica Sorenson creates worlds that are so true to life that I feel as though I can jump into her book and become friends with these characters and live in this world.
I gave this book 4/5 hearts
