The Thing About Love

img_8759Finally finished this one graciously sent to me for review by @jmrteam and @jmraphaelle. Romance is not my usual genre but I did enjoy this book and I am a very slow reader because of time constraints, but towards the end I couldn’t put it down. I have already told y’all I am not much of a romance reader but there’s a twist- kind of mystery to it as well. Ellie is heartbroken- her guy Mike ( AKA jerk- and that’s being kind) left her without a word. Not so much as an ‘It’s not you – it’s me’.. she has spent 5 months mourning this loss and grieving and wondering what the H happened and WHY?!?! “I thought time healed all wounds. I’m still waiting…”. Then there’s Jack. He is amazing! AND one of Mike’s best friends. Can Ellie find true and lasting love after all that’s happened? Of course there are some twists and turns along the way – it wouldn’t be interesting if there weren’t- but you do find the characters appealing and the overall plot is one where you feel you HAVE to know what happened. Ellie stands in her own way a lot and at one point she even says” I let my fears of getting hurt again get the best of me.” No spoilers here, but the ending is satisfying. Ellie is totally relatable and you just yearn for her to be happy, but is SHE, one of her friends puts it “…in her own way.” I so totally get it. I will say this is not what I would consider a YA book -for teens anyway. There is some adult language and situations in the book that are very explicit. Not that the reader would mind, very mild compared to the 50 Shades series. All in all- give the book ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ I believe if you enjoy this genre, you’d really like this book. I know I did😊
