Happily Ever After
Happily ‚ÄčEver After - Kelly Oram

Cinder & Ella, Book 2

I Picked Up This Book Because: Continue the series.

The Characters:

Ellamara Rodriguez:
Brian Oliver:
Juliette, Ana, Mr Coleman (Ella’s Dad), Vivian

The Story:

This book picks up a week after the first book ends. Now that Brian and Ella have found each other they have to learn to navigate the world of fame together with Ella being wildly unprepared. It’s super cute, very thoughtful and ends with the all important Happily Ever After.

This seems to be written to be a duet however I’d love to see some spinoff stories about other characters. The twins or Vivian’s parents in particular and of course with cameos from Brian and Ella.

The Random Thoughts:

I love how the narrator effortlessly snuck in Ella’s Boston accent.

Cinder & Ella
Cinder & Ella - Kelly Oram

Cinder & Ella , Book 1

I Picked Up This Book Because: Random library find

The Characters:

Ellamara Rodriguez:
Brian “Cinder” Oliver:
Juliette, Vivian, Anastasia, Rob, Mr & Mrs Coleman

The Story:

I smiled throughout most of this book, with breaks for outrage and tears. I love Brian and Ella’s relationship, even before they met. I love their banter and how much they care for each other. I enjoyed the growth of the sisterhood between Juliette and Ella, that was a hard won battle. Elle’s like if almost all hard one battles and she has her ups and downs.

I enjoyed this book very much, if I had the next book I’d pick it up right now.


The Random Thoughts:

I’m quite disappointed that my library does not have the next installment. :-(

Cinder458: Your blogaversary is coming up, right?
EllaTheRealHero: Do all those Hollywood friends of yours know you use words like blogaversary?
Cinder458: Of course not. I need your address. Got you a blogaversary present.


Cinder got me a gift? 
My heart flipped. 
Not that I was in love with my Internet best friend or anything. That would be utterly ridiculous. The boy was cocky and stubborn and argued with everything I said just to be infuriating. He also had lots of money, dated models—which meant he had to be hot—and was a closet book nerd. 
Funny, rich, hot, confident, book lover. Definitely not my type. Nope. Not at all. 



It’s been almost a year since eighteen-year-old Ella Rodriguez was in a car accident that left her crippled, scarred, and without a mother. After a very difficult recovery, she’s been uprooted across the country and forced into the custody of a father that abandoned her when she was a young child. If Ella wants to escape her father’s home and her awful new stepfamily, she must convince her doctors that she’s capable, both physically and emotionally, of living on her own. The problem is, she’s not ready yet. The only way she can think of to start healing is by reconnecting with the one person left in the world who’s ever meant anything to her—her anonymous Internet best friend, Cinder.

Hollywood sensation Brian Oliver has a reputation for being trouble. There’s major buzz around his performance in his upcoming film The Druid Prince, but his management team says he won’t make the transition from teen heartthrob to serious A-list actor unless he can prove he’s left his wild days behind and become a mature adult. In order to douse the flames on Brian’s bad-boy reputation, his management stages a fake engagement for him to his co-star Kaylee. Brian isn’t thrilled with the arrangement—or his fake fiancée—but decides he’ll suffer through it if it means he’ll get an Oscar nomination. Then a surprise email from an old Internet friend changes everything.

Review

 

So, I love internet connection romances. I like romance that deal with fame. I like fairy tale retellings. This book sounded good to me.

 

It opened fine with the heroine. The hero ... not someone I would even like.

 

Then, every character gets oversimplified at first. This aspect of the book changes but I had to wait too long for the heroine to grow.

 

I never settled into this book and didn't enjoy being in the heads of the leads through the first person point of view.

Remember Jamie Baker
Remember Jamie Baker - Kelly Oram Finished the Jamie Baker trilogy. Thoroughly enjoyed this third book, concluding the trilogy of books. The way book 2 ended, I wasn't sure how Oram was gonna finish up the series, but it was great!
