I loved it! I really-really loved it!
That was my last coherent thought before drifting off to sleep after finishing reading it, late into the night. And I really recommend this story from the bottom of my heart!



Beautiful. Heartwarming. Funny. Romantic. Crazily cute. Emotional. Perfect. That’s all He+She is… and more.

Why is it that, you ask?
Because of the quality of the writing. The fleshed-out, full of life characters. The open and funny conversations. The freshness of the plot even. The cuten

4 stars! This book was so fun!! I felt like I was there with them ! It's has funny moments, sweet moment, HOT moments and sad moments .. Both of them were on a journey to heal, and together they find in each other their missing piece. The twists were really shocking! To be honest? I did not saw it coming! The author did a really good job with that! I loved how it ends, finding out their names and all that, but still .. I wanted more closure .. More ENDING lol .. Overall, a really good book!

I'm going to keep my preliminary review relatively short, as I try to wrap my mind around the last 30% of this novel.

The novel He + She is really quite good! It kept me guessing, which is rare in the New Adult-Contemporary Genre. I would venture to say that 90% of the themes & plots in this genre are "overused & abused." However, He + She is fresh & fun... and as you can probably tell, it totally knocked me on my a$$. I am gobsmacked!!!

Would I recommend this novel? Absolutely!!! If

Quirky, fun, heartfelt and sexy--this book knocked my socks off. This is Warren's first New Adult Contemporary Romance...and I sincerely hope it won't be her last! One of my favorites of 2014!!

WOW! that was complete not at all what i expected and I absolutely loved it.

I went into this book with very little information and practically zero expectations. No one I knew had really read it and it's a super under the radar but i decided to take the chance and boy did it pay off. Expecting an average boy meets girl, they fall in love, insecurities and/or other issues lead to breakup but all is well in the end when they realize how stupid they were and how mu

While I didn’t really like insta-love component in the plot line , I still think this novel was a solid NA read. The theory I had about the twist was the reason why I was able to hang onto the story. Hew was a great hero, the highlight in this book for me.

Like:
Hew, San Francisco, Palace of Fine Arts, Forgiveness

Meh:
The serious issues they faced in the last 30% were resolved rather quickly.
The pace of storyline is uneven.

I guess if you like the twist in Unravel, you may like He+She

Oh wow. Just wow. This book deserves all the freaking stars in the universe! Warmed my heart, tugged my heartstrings, pulled so many smiles in my face and jerked some tears from my eyes. It's so beautiful it hurts. This is a must read!

This book is brilliant! There were so many twists and turns that I did not see coming. I am totally blown away by how good this book is! I loved Hew and Shea. The way that their relationship develops is beautiful - I loved their banter and their friendship. This book was so well written that I could not put it down from when I started. My only complaint is that I wish there was an epilogue. I love this book, it's one of the top books I've read this year and it will stay with me for a long time. ...more

WOW, I didn't see this one coming -- neither how good this book was nor the complete surprise that occurred during it (I usually pride myself on figuring out a plot before it is officially revealed, but I sure didn't figure this one out). Unfortunately, I can't give too much of a "review" because it would probably give away some of this remarkable story. Just read the blurb and you will get the gist.

Destiny might be a bitch, but she's also forgiving, loving, healing and beautiful.

*****5 HUGE STARS***- READ this book!!! What an awesome surprise this book was! Very unique story line. Both characters lovable in their own right! I cannot describe this story and do it justice without ruining the surprise of it. Go in blind. Best advice I can give. You won't regret this book. VERY WELL DONE> one of my new favorites.

Holy plot twist Batman! I did not see that coming!

If you want a change from the usual romance books, then this is the book for you. It's fresh and vibrant, and it blindsided me completely.

I loved Hew & Shea, they just 'got' each other, and they didn't push for more than the other was willing to give. I loved how they chose to let fate decide the path their relationship should take, and their willingness to accept each other at face value. What you see is what you get. They knew nothing about

Review by Allison

He+She is a great story with so many twists and turns I never knew what was going to happen next. It reminded me a little of Ten Tiny Breaths somewhat. It was very well written, so it always kept me guessing.

Shea has total optimism throughout the whole story and it gave me such hope for her when sometimes she seemed sad.

Hew- the hero, was much the same way, although I just knew something was going on with him as well. A pain in his past that clouded what wa

He+She had a good concept. With better execution it would have been like Unravel by Calia Reed (in short awesome). But there were many thing working against this. For one was the insta love. Yes we all have read that particular concept before many times but this time it simply annoyed me. In other books I somehow overlooked it. But it was impossible to do so for this one with it being flashed all the time like a neon sign.

The twist in the end though not all that predictable (atleast fo

updated 5-26: Michelle Warren is one of the most generous and genuine people I know. She is also an extremely gifted writer. Her Wanderdust time travel trilogy is totally unique as is He + She.

Oh em gee. Mind = blown. Just wow wow wowie wow.

I HARDLY ever get surprised by books. I can see the twist coming from a mile away, but oh my goodness I never saw it coming. That's all I'll say about that because I'm afraid of spoiling something.

However, funny thing about talking about being in someone's vacation photos. I literally said the same thing to my husband ON the cable cars IN San Francisco like two weeks ago.

I LOVED this book. I"m a fan of Michelle's writing and this most definitely didn't disappoint me. In fact, if anything i became more of a fan after reading He + She! I read it in a few days unable to put it down. I liked the carefree feeling it gave me too. I connected with the main characters and would love to read more about them. A very smooth, effortless, enjoyable read all the way through!

Wow, this book took me by surprise and a good surprise at that. Shea is a character that you can't help but like and enjoy while questioning her sanity. Hew is a broken and lovable. Together they fix each other and love each other until reality kicks in. This story is beautifully written and I would recommend.

Now THAT'S a kick ass plot. No words. Just read it. Would have loved an epilogue. Still recovering from the whiplash plot twist. So well done and unique.

He + She by Michelle Warren
4 stars!!

“He treats me with respect; he opens doors for me, makes me laugh, and comforts me when I cry. He owes me nothing, yet gives me everything in return.”

This is one of those books that once you start you don’t want to stop. I made the school girl error of starting this late at night and this lead to a late night/early morning reading marathon. This is a totally captivating story from start to finish, a beautiful story about two people, escaping their pasts, their

Kennt ihr das? Ihr beendet ein Buch und wünscht euch im selben Augenblick, ihr könntet die Zeit zurückdrehen, um es noch einmal das erste Mal zu lesen?
So ist es mir bei „He + She“ gegangen *seufz* Als ich das Buch, das aus seiner und ihrer Sicht erzählt wird, begonnen habe, war ich der Meinung, dass mich eine leichte Sommerromanze mit einem kleinen Touch Drama erwartet.
