About The Elle Project
True Love should never be put to a family vote.
All I wanted was a nice, relaxing Christmas vacation at home with my family. But no, the lot of them had to ruin it by inviting my childhood crush, Oliver Moore, and throwing us together at every possible moment. Heaven, help me.
Now, instead of sipping hot cocoa by the fire, I’m dodging matchmaking attempts and trying to pretend I’m not attracted to Oliver’s adorably perfect smile. I will not become another one of my family’s projects.
I mean, am I upset Elle’s family swindled us into this Christmas vacation together? No. Will I ever admit that aloud? Also, no. I’ve long ago come to terms with the friend zone Elle placed me in back around ninth grade.
But there’s something different about her this week. Something that’s bringing up feelings I really should ignore.
Too bad ignoring has never been my strong suit.
I love a good novella. The good ones are short enough to read in an afternoon. And they don’t leave huge unanswered questions about the characters or the plot. This is one of the great ones! It kept my attention and I did not want to put it down. I loved that the whole thing felt complete. Summer Dowell did a fabulous job on it!
Elle…I loved her! How could I not. She’s a bit of a nerd, an accountant working in Denver. She’s getting ready to go home for Christmas when she finds out that Noah, one of her neighbors, will be there. Normally this isn’t a huge deal right? But the way their families are interconnected, that means that Elle will be seeing Noah all the time. And her family has been pushing the two of them together for years! Elle wants nothing to do with this. So she makes up a boyfriend. So stinking funny! Especially when she can’t remember what his name is supposed to be.
Noah is a great guy. He’s had feelings for Elle for forever. And he loves her family. I loved how he went out of his way to help Elle. And just the swoony moments between the two. They were so great!
This is such a great story! I laughed out loud several times. Can’t wait for more by this author!
I was sent an e-copy of The Elle Project as a gift from the author. All opinions are my own.
