Blurb:
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?


Reese's Reviews:
Ella and Micha are trying to live their dreams, but it isn’t everything they thought it would be. Ella is dealing with hard family matters and dealing with her mental state of self-worth and depression. Micha is trying to help Ella while being far away with his band. Nothing seems to be working and when Ella hits a really low point in her life she decides she can’t be with Micha anymore until she can get herself together without him. That’s when Micha and Ella begin their relationship over and try to be friends, but they’re nothing without each other and they both want their forever.

Ella was not as likeable a character in this story to me as she was in the first book. I felt like she regressed a lot in this story since she seemed to be dealing a lot better in the first book than in the second. While I understand depression in depth I don’t think the book explained it well enough. Ella deals a lot with her depression and her family issues and her feelings for Micha and herself in this story. She has really low self-esteem and doesn’t feel like anyone should want to be with her since she has depression. I do like how that aspect of the book is so realistic and her relationship with Micha is as hot and romantic as ever. I think my favorite aspect about Ella in this story was the whole “finding herself” she did throughout the book that lead her to being with Micha and being alright with herself in the end.

Micha has always known what he wanted and that’s to play music and be with Ella. Both of those things become harder for Micha throughout the book and he has to re-evaluate how he deals with things and exactly what he wants.

If you read the first book you’ll want to read this book. However, this sequel is not even as close to as good as the first book so that’s a bummer. I enjoyed the story somewhat, but I felt the story wasn’t as well developed in some places; like Ella’s spiral down into depression.

Overall, The Forever of Ella and Micha was enjoyable. I laughed and overall enjoyed how and where the characters ended up.
