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.
So What Did I Think of Cinder & Ella by Kelly Oram?
I have to say that this was definitely my type of book! Such an amazingly sweet romance that I completely fell for.
The drama was multiple, complex and intense and I really cared about what would happen between Cinder and Ella.
I really saw their friendship and the blossoming of the friendship to something more. They were so sweet together and the emotion and chemistry between them was really strong.
Ella was such a great strong character, I really felt all of the pain and heartache that she was going through. I really liked that she was a blogger, something I could totally relate to!
Cinder was so caring, funny, sweet and snarky towards Ella. He had my heart melting so many times throughout the story. He was really amazing and even though he had craziness in his life he never let it blindside his feelings for Ella.
I loved the seriousness of the issues that Ella and Cinder had to face. Loved the different levels of emotions in the story, the sweetness of Ella and Cinder’s friendship, the craziness of Cinder’s hidden life and the harshness of Ella’s.
I loved how they were both crazy fans of a popular book series, which I could totally relate to as well. I was really happy that after all the sadness and craziness that they got through it stronger and better and closer and the ending just melted my heart and overall I loved reading Cinder & Ella by Kelly Oram.
