Ellie Ashburn has come a long way from her poor, rural upbringing: She has an upwardly mobile career, great friends and access to culture and consumerism denied to her in her youth. Although she loves the fast-paced life of Los Angeles, she can’t stand the fast-paced men. Just when she’s about to throw in the towel on dating, she meets environmental activist Jake Tillerman. Although the attraction between them is sizzling, their lifestyles could not be more different. As they get to know each other, a series of events unfold that range from comedic and frustrating to passionate and eye opening in this romantic story of opposites attract. As Ellie embarks into his eco-friendly world, she begins to question the very things she holds dear. When presented with a seemingly irresolvable conflict in their beliefs, both Jake and Ellie must decide if it will tear them apart or transform their budding romance into a lifelong love.

Right from hearing about the concept of an "eco-romance" I was interested in reading about how a modern consumer/city girl and the founder of an environmental not for profit organisation could make their relationship work! The author didn't let me down, with likeable and believable characters and topical storyline that links neatly back to the "real world". Well worth a read.

Green, the novel

Great writing. The author kept you engaged just by her choice of words,dialogue, and content. At times the story was predictable but again the writing kept you interested.
