Review of Here by Ella James
Here by Ella James

Milo Mitchell's life used to be charmed, but that was before her family dissolved, she went a little crazy, and her best friends started acting more like strangers. Spending Saturday morning in a treehouse with a stun gun for company and a herd of deer for friends is the only exciting thing in her life...until she shoots a fawn and finds her dart stuck in a guy.

Her gorgeous victim is dressed in a Brioni tux and armed with a hanky. He has no idea who or where he is. Afraid her dart caused his amnesia, Milo takes him in, names him Nick, and vows to help him solve his mystery. Soon the pair find Nick's face in a newspaper obituary, and Nick beings to have strange, ethereal memories of Milo--who is sure she's never met him. Suddenly Nick knows things he shouldn't know and is doing things he shouldn't do. When the Department of Defense shows up, Nick and Milo run--toward a shocking conclusion that could destroy both their worlds.

Just like any other paranormal romance novel, this one is is full of surprises. The novel has its own sense of personality, and the plot is something truly original. There is not the ordinary, simple, overrated plot of two young teenagers who have fallen in love and are being secretive about their relationship. It's not the same plot read over and over. When you read one paranormal romance, you have read them all. Vampires? Werewolves? Zombies? All essentially have the same background.

What I particularly enjoyed about this is that there was always something UNEXPECTED. The very beginning was not something I was expecting. Shooting a deer and having a young man in a Brioni tuxedo appear out of what appears to be nowhere? All the events occurring seem to revolve specifically around "Nick," but what is the CAUSE? The REASON?

A truly high, fast-paced novel, this is one I would highly recommend. I fell in love after the first chapter.

My Rating:

Ella James is a Colorado author who writes teen and adult romance. She is happily married to a man who knows how to wield a red pen, and together they are raising a feisty two-year-old who will probably grow up believing everyone's parents go to war over the placement of a comma.

Ella's books have been listed on numerous Amazon bestseller lists, including the Movers & Shakers list and the Amazon Top 100; two were listed among Amazon's Top 100 Young Adult Ebooks of 2012.
