"Adoring Addie," by Leslie Gould

"Adoring Addie," by Leslie Gould
Not Since Romeo and Juliet Has a Couple Faced Odds This Long

The Cramers and Mosiers have been angry with each other for as long as anyone can remember. Things had cooled to a simmer...until Addie Cramer and Jonathan Mosier fell head over heels for each other. Now old tensions are renewed, and Addie's parents insist she marry stolid and uninspiring Phillip Eicher.

Distraught at a future apart, the two decide their best hope is to reconcile the two families...but that means digging into the past to see what tore them apart. Will their love be enough to keep them together or will long-held secrets ruin their chance at happiness?


One of the things I loved about this book, was that Leslie made the family so real, warts and all.  Very few families are perfect and the ones portrayed in the book were no exception.  That in itself made the book more relate able; at least to me.  Addie falling in love with the "enemy" not only makes things worse, but brings old feelings and feuds to a head.

Addie and Johnathan were made for one another and you want to knock their parents heads together to make them see sense in all of this.

Stars out of 5 : 5 I loved this book, it was interesting and very "real." It was an easy book to read and the story sucked you in right from the start.  You also get reacquainted to some of the characters from the first book in the series "Courting Cate."
