FEVER - Ella & Cole's story...

Singing in the shower takes on a whole new meaning in Melissa Pearl's first New Adult Contemporary Romance.

Ella Simmons does not want to move across the country. But she is, because her boyfriend has persuaded her to join him at UChicago to finish out her college education. Never able to tell him no, she hops on a plane and makes the trek from LA expecting to adjust to life like she's often forced to, but things are not that simple when she hears a luscious voice singing over her shower wall. His deep, sexy tenor makes her weak in the knees, spreading fire through her limbs and making her question everything about her life and relationship.

Can one voice really have that much of an impact?

Cole Reynolds is on his way out. In his final year at UChicago, the only thing he wants to do is finish school and get on with his life. But the sweet voice that interrupts his morning shower turns his world upside down. Compelled to find his shower songbird, he begins a search across campus. The only thing to distract him from this goal is his roommate's gorgeous girlfriend who's just arrived from LA - Ella Simmons.

Relationships are put to the ultimate test as future dreams are questioned and friendships are thrown on the line for love.

I have to confess, I don't usually read NA books however, this sounded interesting and I gave it a go. I really enjoyed it, it was a beautiful read. I just had to see how Ella and Cole were going to resolve their issues to have their HEA.

The author has done a wonderful job in creating complex backstories for her characters, so they're interesting and the book is character driven. And I loved that there were lots of jazz references throughout the book.

Thanks Melissa Pearl for a wonderful read, I look forward to more of your books.

5.0 out of 5 stars Swoon worthy! 21 May 2016
By Voracious Reviews - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
What an awesome love story! The tension, the drama, the all kept it pretty real and angsty, just the way I love romantic stories to be. I loved the music mentioned, the singing, and especially, the chemistry between Ella and Cole, even though there were so many complications in that relationship. The realities of college life, dating, and finding oneself really are felt in this story. I loved all the characters, even the side characters of Morgan, Jody, Nina, and Malachi kept the mood light even when things kept going wrong. They felt like they would rock as friends in real life.

I especially loved the shower scenes. So incredibly swoon worthy!

I totally wanted to see the happy ending and even though it went a little unexpectedly from what I thought was going to happen, I absolutely loved how it all ended. I enjoy Ms. Pearl's writing style, this is my fourth book I've read by her and I will continue to love her stories and I can't wait for more from this series.

4.0 out of 5 stars It was meant to be! 6 March 2016
By Jennifer Ellis (BarBelles and Book Nerds) - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Ella is on her way to Chicago to attend college with her best friend Morgan and her boyfriend David. They have convinced her that it is the best thing for her, but she’s not so sure. After the death of her parents when she was younger, Ella like to keep thing simple, easy, and safe. That’s why she loves David, because he’s safe and he protects her. He has the future mapped out for them and that’s just how they both like it……or does Ella? After a singing incident in the shower, she falls in love with the voice of a man that she has never seen before.

Cole is in his senior year at the University of Chicago. He grew up with his foster parents, after both his parents died, and has learned the ropes of running a successful pub from them. His dream is to open up his own pub across town to cater to the college crowd after graduation. He doesn’t have time for a relationship nor does he want one. That’s why he’s taken by surprise with his reaction to the girls voice in the shower. He has to find her.

When Ella and Cole meet, sparks fly. But there is a mountain of obstacles between them, and neither is wanting to act on the attraction that is growing between them.

This book is well written. I’m not always a fan of first person writing because it can sometimes come off like a diary entry, but that’s not so with this book. It is written from both Ella and Coles point of view and there is a clear transition between the two. The flow is great.

There were times that I just wanted to reach into the book and shake some sense into them both. I get that you don’t want to hurt people. I get that safe is easy. But there has to come a point where you stop living other peoples lives and start living your own. I was questioning if Ella was ever going to figure that out. Cole knew what he wanted there was a part in the book where he told her that she was more important to him then anything, including his best friend who just happens to be David, her boyfriend. I applaud him even as he tries to find comfort in other women. David, All I can say about him is OBTUSE. He was so self absorbent that he really couldn’t see that he was losing the thing that was “supposedly” the most important thing to him.

I really did like this book and look forward to reading more from Melissa. You should definitely grab a copy.

2.0 out of 5 stars Characters were a major turn-off 11 September 2015
By morehumanthanhuman - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This novel features Cole and Ella. Honestly, they were a couple that I found it difficult to pull for. Cole is a playboy focused on his dream of opening a bar. Ella is a college student who has recently moved to Chicago to join her long-term boyfriend at school. She’s so spineless it doesn’t even seem like it occurs to her to have desires until Cole ignites discontent in her (which is pretty nasty, considering he is the supposed best friend of David, her boyfriend). The conceit of the book is that Cole is twice-over in love with Ella – he gets a crush on her when he meets her and he’s also hung up on the mystery woman he hears singing in the dorm showers (who is, of course, Ella). Ella, in turn, falls twice-over for Cole. This twice-over love, I guess, makes the once-over screwing they give David more acceptable.

Maybe as a story of personal growth this story would go down better. But the thing is, Ella doesn’t really change. At the end of the book, she still seems like she has as much direction as a piece of dandelion fluff. She’s just attached herself to a different man’s dream.

I think we’re supposed to blame David for the betrayal he is dealt at the hands of his long-term girlfriend and his best friend. Why? Because he didn’t make sure that every place they ate had gluten-free options? Ella had a million chances to speak up about it. If she acts like it doesn’t matter, David should second-guess her? There’s a profound lack of agency in how the author approaches Ella’s life – like a man’s job is to intuit what a woman wants, despite what she might say otherwise. I can’t blame David for thinking that Ella shared his dreams after she told him over and over that she did. I was hoping that the next book might be about him and his chance at love, but it looks like he’s an abandoned character. In this world, failing to intuit the desires a woman has determined to hide means one is unworthy of love – or even loyalty from a friend.
4.0 out of 5 stars Good Intro... 27 December 2015
By Nhya - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I liked this one. Alot. It certainly put me out of my "3Star" reading book funk lately. And that's always a welcome thing :)

This was a romantic, sexy read. Some hard truths here but I felt the outcomes were portrayed in a very realistic manner for all parties involved. No fluff, but no overt cruelty either. It was real. And sometimes real isn't always sweet. But that doesn't mean that good things can't come from the bittersweet.

Though I think this was a really good intro to this series, I have no desire to continue on with the other characters' stories. While they were great reading about them here, they didn't really inspire me to read about their own individual stories.

So I would recommend this read. If you read only one book in this series, start here. At the beginning.

Happy Reading :)
5.0 out of 5 stars ... was told about the Songbird series and it sounded like something I just had to read 13 April 2017

I was told about the Songbird series and it sounded like something I just had to read. SO I borrowed them from Amazon. Ella has move to Chicago to go to college with a friend and her boyfriend. She has a lot of worries and wanted to just stay back him and go to community college. Cole came from humble beginnings. All he wants is to finish school and go for his dreams and that is to run his own bar. But he is looking for the songbird that sang her way into his life. There is a lot going on in this book. SO will there be a happy ending?
