You have a story about a girl who thinks she’s going crazy and has a guy who’s completely in love with her and THIS is all you could come up with?

Dear Ella,

When you have a guy like Micha who’s gorgeous, loyal, and completely DEVOTED to you… and you can’t make up your mind as to whether you want to be with him, so you keep having sex with him and then keep telling him that you and he are just strictly friends… and then confess that you love him the next day… and

Frustratingly Fascinating!!

I can tell you nearly every star is for the most patient, forgiving man on the planet, named Micha. Not to mention sexy as all get out and every girl’s dream boyfriend!

I truly grew to love Ella in the novella and the first book of this series, but this girl just gave me pure whiplash and a major headache. I mean ... for crying out loud ... make up your mind already!

Just when Micha and Ella finally seem to get on the same page on where their relationship is heading, Ell

Ella and Micha have been through a lot. Both individually and together. Neither one has had an easy life, but they’ve always had each other. After all they have over come, they are finally together. Not just friends, but actually with one another. Things should be great for them, easy, they deserve it. But distance makes things difficult for these two.

I'm not going to waste my time writing a review for a book that I did NOT like! I will say that this sequel is a good example of authors not knowing when to leave a good thing alone!
Luckily, the author somewhat made up for this mess of a story with book three, which reads more like an extended epilogue.

"That's All" Ash summed up my feeling perfectly in her review of this book.

MICHA SCOTT Look at those eyes, that lip ring...Oh Micha ❤❤❤❤singer, song-writer, guitar player .... Swoon ❤

I don't even want to explain how it hurts my book heart to not give this book 5 stars. Although, Ella in most parts of this book was an EPIC FAIL to me......Micha ❤definitely delivered. It cut me deep to see less than magnanimous reviews of this book about their FOREVER as I loved "The Secret of Ella and Micha" with all my heart. Seriously all of it.

“You left me, ripped out my heart, and then came back acting like a robot, and you know what? We made it through. You and I, good or bad, belong together. We make each other whole.”

I love the way this book is written in alternate POV’s. The only reason why I couldn’t give this 5 stars was because of the Ending. I needed more.. it felt rushed and unfinished somehow…

This Book picks up from The Secret of Ella and Micha, where Ella is back at school and Micha is touring the country with his band.

Cannot wait!!

The Forever of Ella and Micha is the 2nd book in The Secret trilogy, and to be honest i'm a little disappointed with it since i thought the first book was really good, and this one didn't exactly reach my expectations. So yeah, i was let down.

When Ella and Micha are together everything seems possible, but now they are miles apart.

Ella has be through a lot and is still trying to overcome her past for a chance of a better future. Will she succeed?

Don't have much to say besides the fact that this one was just "eh" for me. (view spoiler). It makes me sad that I didn't love it. I was really looking forward to it. 2.5 stars rounded up to 3 solely because of Micha.

In this second book Ella and Micha are trying to get past their problems while trying to make a long-distance-relationship work.
Micha is having some family issues, he always on the road with the band, misses Ella like crazy and somehow alcohol seems a pretty good way to deal with the problems.
Ella is taking the distance pretty bad and her depressions is worst again, so she’s slowing falling again to the dark place that made her run the first time.

This book….*sigh* I think I have been rendered speechless. I’ve read quite a lot of books, but I don’t think I’ve ever felt an emotional connection to characters as much as I have with Ella and Micha. If you loved book one, THE FOREVER OF ELLA AND MICHA will blow you away. It’s more angsty, darker, sexier, bigger and better! Sorensen gives it her all and it’s such a magical thing!

The would have been a 5 star read for me if it wasn't for the ending. I love Micha and Ella. LOVE. Ella is not an annoying heroin. She's the most giving one. Ella has always had the brunt of her families issues to carry. She was responsible for watching over her mom. Making sure she took her meds. When her mom died, she was blamed. At 17 years old. How wrong is that? Her dad and her brother made her feel like it was her fault. Then she was responsible for her drunk dad, paying the bills, keeping ...more

Well heck, happy birthday to me! And what a birthday it will be with the release of more Micha! Woohoo!

Finally! Got my hands on this puppy, read it, and loved it.
The Secret of Ella and Micha is where this story all started. Ella and Micha have known each other since...forever.

Ella is the girl next door whose mother committed suicide and whose father is an alcoholic. Ella went off to college and comes home looking completely different. Gone is the wild child and in her place is a girl Micha doesn't recognize. She is preppy and she is a rule follower. The Ellie Mae Micha knows is rebel, a fighter and a racer.

If you were a fan of The Secret of Ella and Micha, you’ll find yourself in love with the sequel, The Forever of Ella and Micha. There’s a powerhouse of emotion on every page with these two incredible characters that Jessica Sorensen has created with Ella and Micha. When the reading community at large talks about the best books in New Adult, right away these two books come to mind. Jessica has a great knack for writing very dimensional and “real” characters and situations.

I was SO excited for this sequel... And then...


The Secret of Ella and Micha was angst-ridden, highly emotional, and red-HOT-spicy. The sequel... not so much. Yeah, there was an abundance of "sexy" scenes littered throughout the book - no complaints there - BUT, it just lacked substance. (pleasedontshootme?)

Not to mention... Ella and Micha's issues this time around, started getting BEYOND repetitive; I found myself skimming through A LOT. And, I usually NEVER just skim through stuff. So yeah. No

When I found out I was approved by Netgalley for this book I think I literally squealed, because it had been a long and torturous wait for more of the beautiful characters I fell in love with in the first book of this series! I adore both Ella and Micha, and I was so anxious to see them find the forever happiness that they had more than earned.

I wasn't sure what to expect with this book, since I felt like Ella and Micha's story came to a good conclusion in the first book. But Jessica Sorensen gave us an insight into their relationship and solidified what I already knew about the two of them...they were meant to be together.

At the end of The Secret of Ella and Micha, Ella was back in Las Vegas at school and Micha was out touring with the band. They were trying to make the long distance "thing" work while they both worked through issues

God, why does my head have to be broken?

In this continuation of Ella and Micha's story, it gets deep into Ella's problems and her mental issues. It really sad at times. But mental illness is sad and just sucks. It's an emotional story where Ella finally starts to come to terms with her past and trying to move on with her future.

Then there's Micha who steals your heart and has you swooning all over again....

I need me some more Micha Scott!!

I was so excited to read this book that I actually put my current book aside to start this the day it was released. I have to say I was slightly disappointed in the book. I can't really pin point the exact reason why, it just wasn't what I thought it would be like. Ella really kind of drove me crazy in this book. I understand she had some serious mental issues but she was inside her head way to much in this book. I was glad she was seeing someone (therapist) for the long run I think it ...more

Not exactly the "forever" I had imagined in my head for Ella and Micha. Still loving both the characters and wanted so much for this sequel to grab me as powerfully as did the first book. However, I felt a great deal of letdown when the story line was so weak and flimsy. It just didn't live up to the emotional ramp I felt they deserved. Yes, Ella and Micha agree on a forever and most likely get that happily ever after but I wanted to see it, feel it, and know it without a doubt. Too rushed and u ...more

I really liked this sequel. Ella was a little back and forth, but Micha was always there to pull her back. I LOVED that Ella was in therapy so much (of course, the psychology professor in me would love that :)).

I loved the writing, the characters, the story.

I cannot freakin' wait to read Lila and Ethan's story!
