The Boyfriend Bookmark: ★★★★
After five years of marriage, Ella couldn’t be happier. Her job is great. Her marriage is amazing. But when she receives some surprising news, her world is turned upside down.
Micha loves being a musician, but being on the road, and away from Ella, is difficult. When the industry begins to put pressure on him to change his image, he makes a choice; one he fears is going to drastically change Ella’s and his future forever. That is until he learns Ella has a secret, one that makes his career choice seem hugely insignificant.
They have been married for five years now and Micha is still on tour. It was great at first because Ella would travel along with him. They are truly a match made in heaven and everything they have worked so hard to achieve is finally upon them. But there is always more for them to want.
Ella wants Micha home more. She misses him so much. But she can’t travel with him with the gallery open and she doesn’t get to see him as much as she would like. She also knows that there is nothing she is willing to do about it. She is not going to ask him to give up on his dream. He loves what he does, but the toll it takes on the two of them is heavy at times. She misses him.
Micha misses Ella just as much and when his manager suggests an image overhaul, Micha is done. He doesn’t want to reinvent himself. He wants to be with his wife. He wants a family, though he knows that Ella is no where near ready for that. He wants more. He wants to spend more time with Ella and he wants to be with her a lot more.
Ella visits Micha two months before his tour ends and the two of them make incredible music together, on a piano… and it pushes them both into directions they never thought they would even contend with so soon. Micha needs to be with Ella. He knows they both need it.
But what you don’t expect is what happens when Ella returns home from that quick trip to see Micha. Yes, she misses him. Yes, she wants him home. But nothing could prepare her for what happens when she returns home. She can’t do it. She doesn’t know how. Her parents didn’t give her a lot to work with and now she is faced with her biggest fear yet. But with Micha by her side, the world will be righted and set spinning in the right direction once again.
I loved this novella. It is a final glimpse into a happily ever after for Ella and Micha and a glimpse of what the future truly will hold for them. It is the next step on a roadmap to happiness and I love that through everything, the things we expect to happen least in life are sometimes the things that will bring us full circle into the relationship that we were always meant to have.
Ella and Micha captured my heart from the beginning and I am so glad I have shared in this journey with them!
