A Beautiful Kind of Love

A Beautiful Kind of Love
by Ellie Wade
Genre: Contemporary Romance

Every choice has a consequence.

I believe in soul mates. Why? Because I have one and his name is Jax Porter.

I have known Jax my whole life and I have loved him with every breath I’ve ever taken. The fact that we were born a mere month apart to mothers that are best friends has made us inseparable since birth.

What we have is so rare, one would think our story would be written, our fate sealed. But, unfortunately that’s not how life works. Life offers us many choices that can turn destiny into chance.

I now find myself heading toward a destination that I could have never imagined and I have to figure out where to go from here. 

Will the choices that have been made change our path forever or will fate find its way?

Ellie Wade resides in southwest Michigan with her husband, three young children, and two dogs. She has a Master’s degree in education from Eastern Michigan University and is a huge University of Michigan sports fan. She loves the beauty of her home state, especially the lakes and the gorgeous autumn weather. When she is not writing, you will find her reading, snuggled up with her kiddos, or spending time with family and friends. She loves traveling and exploring new places with her family.

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

*I received this book free in exchange for an honest review*
I couldn't really get into enjoying this book. I felt it dragged on so much, that it ruined it for me. The timeline details were off. We start the story when the kids are 12, and Katy Perry Roar is the top song? But then the story goes 5 years later? It's not a "futuristic" story, so to me, the time line facts just didn't work, and I felt more annoyed by it than anything.

We spend a lot of time focusing on being 12 and 17. I understand we're setting up a pattern for a great love story, but for me, it dragged and dragged. I hated some of the choices these two made, and felt the story could have gone so much better than it did. As the book moves on, it definitely picks up and is a little easier to get through. I just wasn't very into this story as much as I had hoped I would be after reading the blurb.

I wanted to love this, I just couldn't. It's not that it's an awful book. I saw no editing errors, it was almost well planned and thought out, just some timeline issues. It's just striking me as someone for a younger crowd.
