Hearing Love – Book Tour

Date Published: April 16, 2014
In the spirit of the love in the book I will say to Katie Lee I love her! What a great book. I laughed at Ella our main character, I got mad at Ella, I cried about Ella and I loved the book. The plot was great because it applies to relevant issues of our current society. The cupcake war started to make cupcakes as a business popular. Well I dont know if popular is the correct word but as Ella shows cupcakes are a trend. She is such a well rounded character. She is hearing impaired, like myself, and she doesnt let it get her down. I have never read a book about a character that was hearing impaired so I applaud the author for her uniqueness. That part of the story was like a refreshing breeze on a hot day.
Back to the characters, Ella was great. The concept of Coopers Treats was the backdrop but it plays a major role. When this merger comes up Ella meets Alex Shepard and I think she was smitten. He was totally smitten with her so begins the love story. Well they have ups and downs. Not giving away the plot but Ella is the one who is tied to her ex Chase Kramer. So for me this is another refreshing aspect of the book, the main character a woman is not sure about the man. He (Alex) seems ready to commit and Ella is holding onto the past.
There is a healthy dose of Alex and his background, another bravo! Parts where Alex almost loses his mentor were heart breaking but really good. As the merger deadline approaches, Ella is covering for Chase and his poor work ethic. I know Steven Covey means people like Alex when he talks of Highly Successful People and surely he means Chase when he refers to slackers! This part hurt me and made me cry! I was a babbling idiot so kudos to Katie Lee again for the proper amount of angst.
I was admittedly emotional over Ella’s turmoil. Her reaction to her best friend Nicole was where I lost it. Nicole totally dishes the tough love piece of pie and runs with it. That was great! I know the author has another book so I am thrilled I bought it and I cant wait to read it. For this one it was the perfect length for me with the great characters, plot and romance!
