From the New York Times best-selling author of The Secret of Ella and Micha comes a new story of hope, heartbreak, and the power of young love.
Ella is back at school, trying to focus on her future and forget the darkness of her past. Still, her ongoing family drama is making it harder and harder to get through the days. All she really wants is Micha, but no way will she let her problems get in the way of his dreams.
Micha is busy touring the country with his band, seemingly getting everything he's ever wanted. But deep down he knows something is missing. Being away from Ella is harder than he expected. And while he longs to have her with him, he won't ask her to leave college just to be at his side.
When Ella and Micha are together, anything seems possible...but lately those shared moments aren't so easy to find. When a new tragedy shakes their already fragile world, one of them will make a dramatic choice that could break them apart forever....

I'm proud to be a bookaholic...addicted, obsessed, passionate!!! My favorite way to relax & escape reality....
This book continues right were The Secret of Ella and Micha leaves off. Micha goes on tour with his band and Ella back at school in Las Vegas with Lila. They are struggling with being apart from each other. The separation begins to create insecurities, fear, and anxiety for their future happiness. These two have come a long way since the events in the first book, but unfortunately for Ella, she still has deep issues and isn’t sure she worthy enough for Micha. Ella starts seeing a therapist and wants to work out her problems. She's dealing with issues that stem from her mother’s suicide, her alcoholic father and distant older brother who happens to be getting married. Micha is always there for Ella, through it all, he's always been her steady rock. Unfortunately, in this story there's a whole lot of Ella pushing Micha away which is so frustrating! I do understand why Ella felt the way she did but I also firmly believe when you got something good don't ruin it. I get that both Ella and Micha have a lot of baggage, but some of their arguments were tedious and began to really irritate me. I realize sometimes people tend to hurt the ones they love the most. So, Ella tries her best to Micha at arm's length, but Micha refused while trying to prove that he can help her heal. Meanwhile, some situations & outside influences cause unneeded tension within Ella and Micha’s relationship such as jealously, mostly from Alpha Caveman Micha due to some male attention Ella receives at college. On top of the fact that they both have different lifestyles that could develop more walls between them. However Micha doesn't plan to ever give up on Ella, because Ella is Micha's forever. Ella and Micha have been best friends since they were kids, they know each other inside and out, and they make each other whole. Micha was determined to prove to Ella that it’s better for them to be together than apart. Overall, I was envious of the strong connection between this couple. There was many ups & downs but they pulled through it. I found Micha to be respectful and show a lot of patience. He was swoon worthy pure perfection. OTW....the SMEXY scenes in this book are much HOTTER than the first!!! I'm looking forward to the next installment!
