Review – A Life Less Beautiful by Elle Brooks

A Life Less Beautiful by Elle Brooks 

“True love stories never have endings.” 
Yet, the ending of this book was heart breaking and heartwarming. Those two things meshed together in the most beautiful way resulting in a truly stunning end. From around the 2% mark Elle held my heart in her hand, she stole my breath and held onto it tight. I straight up devoured this book whole and I loved every breathtaking second.

Elle has penned this novel with a seamlessly, perfect fluidity. Each and every word was flawless. Past and present beautifully came together and told a story of first love, heartache, pain and second chances. The angst lover in me fell deep at the push and pull that is played out over the pages. The angst lover in me loved the the intense connection that you cannot help but feel from these characters as they battle with their hearts & minds. The angst lover in me adored that passion that Elle poured into her words that just screamed with emotion and deep feeling. If you’re not an angst lover but love to truly feel and connect with a story, then this is the book for you!

Harlow and Ellis are a sensational pairing. Elle wrote them in such a honest, yet raw way. She played their emotions and feelings out so clearly that as a reader I felt EVERY SINGLE THING. 

From beginning to end I loved this soulful, sensational read. Packed with love, intensity and emotion. 5 breathtaking beautiful stars.

Ellis Hughes has loved the girl next door since he was ten-years-old. She was his sun, moon, and every visible star in a clear night sky. She was also his biggest regret. 

When a terrible accident rips Ellis and Harlow apart, it shatters both their hearts beyond repair. More than a decade later, Ellis has paid his penance, but his regret still lingers, and the love he once harbored for his childhood sweetheart has never faded. 

What Ellis believes has been destroyed forever, slowly comes back to life, only for a cruel twist of fate to intervene. Knowing he cannot live his life without Harlow in it, he faces the ultimate test of selflessness. 

He must sacrifice his own heart to mend hers.
