For most of my life, Ella Blue had been by my side. My best friend. My whole world. Then she vanished. Without a trace. I didn’t know how to move on without her, but I knew in my heart I’d never let her go—I’d wait for her forever.

Ella Blue

For me, no time has passed. I have no clue what happened to the last eight years of my life.
I have no memories of a life without

I love second chance romance stories but excessive family interference always seems to lose my interest. An enjoyable read but it wasn't really my bag. I do seem to judge a book by it's cover. ...more

Ella Blue & Leo Matson have loved each other for a long time. Sadly, on her seventeenth birthday her dad decided to be a huge dick and send her packing because he didn’t like Leo for her.

Fast forward 8 years and she’s back in town. Leo is completely unaware of her arrival and utterly shocked to see her. But then she disappears again and this time when she comes back she’s got no recollection of her time apart from him.

While he’s trying to help her get her memories back they (mainly him) are ca

Leo and Ella Blue, two teenagers in love and eight years of circumstances.

My Blue by Emery Jacobs is a wonderful romance novel that takes the reader through a series of emotions from the time you meet Leo's Blue on her 17th birthday until you read the epilogue. Leo and Ella's relationship is marred by parents, best friends and circumstances out of their control. Emery kept me hooked on this storyline as I tried to figure out who did what and why and how it was all going to play out.

My Blue is a super sweet second chance romance that’s packed with mystery and suspense. I was flying through the pages trying to unravel the mystery of exactly what happened all while enjoying how sweet Leo and Ella Blue were together. While I really did overall enjoy their story there were some things that held me back from really falling in love.
Mostly that boils down to it felt like most of it was rushed. Things move at a lightning fast pace and there were moments because of it that

Second chance romance that was good but to me still needed more. Ella Blue and Leo were childhood sweethearts and from different family backgrounds. They were inseparable until things happened and they were separated. Fast forward 8 years when they see each other again but things are different. At times it seemed liked Leo didn’t want to completely reconnect and poor Ella and her issue it was prolonged to long. Not bad but it could’ve been better.

Intense emotional broken heart stopping love story
Thanks to the author for this book.

I can't remember the last time I finished a book almost in one day nor such a sweet love story. This was sort of a YA book (started when Leo & Ella Blue were 17 & 18) when they when they were wrenched apart due to Ella's parent sending her away. I loved that he called her by her middle name Blue.

Here it is 8 years later, in their 20s, Ella is back in TX, singing with a band and Leo finds her again. All of a sudden Ella loses all those years of memories due to

Ella Blue & Leo have a love that is as old as time, a perpetual love that cannot be stopped no matter who or what gets in the way. But soon their love will be put to the test and hopefully they come out on top. But Can Leo step back into the same role and find the love they once had after 8 years apart? Will Ella Blue still want Leo like she did not so long ago? Love will find a way where there seems to be none.

This book is definitely different from what Emery has written in the past but it’s so good! It’s a second chance with a little suspense and puzzle pieces to put together kinda book, which I love! Plus we get a little bit more Beau which never hurt anyone lol

I also love the fact that you get excited about other characters and the possibility of spin-offs!

Another fantastic story well crafted (not to mention well written!) by Emery. I cannot wait to see what she has for us next!

Second chance small town romance
Best friend to lover
Bit suspence and mystery

I'll say My Blue have good premise for plot. But I think the author didn't put enough kick in it to make it amazing.

I like the little mystery surrounding Blue accident. And then to what happened to Leo eight years ago that separated them at first place. I wish the author explain more about why the father hate them together so much more.

This second chance romance from Emery Jacobs was a wonderful read from start to finish. My Blue is the story of Ella Blue and Leo and how they find their way back to each other through circumstances that play out during the book. Not only do we have the struggle between them but there is an element of suspense since there are unanswered questions that play a part in how everything happens. Clear? Just go and read this wonderfully written story to see a love that lasts!

This book had me within the first chapter. Blue is head over heels in love with Wes and vice versa. They truly are soulmates and on her 17th birthday, just as she thinks he is about to propose Wes gets arrested. That same night when she gets home her horrible father sends her away.

Once Wes gets out of jail he goes straight to Blue's house where he confronts her father and he's told she chose to leave

Emery Jacobs' has such a way with words. My Blue is really unlike any other book that she has written. This has an intense mystery feel to it that I loved. It made it so that My Blue was really a compulsive like read. I really loved the emotional and seriously full of feelings that just radiates from the page. Jacobs certainly makes Ella and Leo work for their HEA. I thought Miss Jacobs was really creative in the development of this story. The way she portrays Ella and the way Ella remembers onl ...more

Emery grew up in Southern Arkansas and has lived most of her adult life in Northern Louisiana. She spends her days working as a Nurse Practitioner in rural health and her nights reading, writing, and occasionally sleeping.

She loves real life romance…lots of angst and heartbreak, but always a happy ending.
