Audience: New Adult - Contemporary Romance

Fever is Melissa Pearl’s latest book. It is a NA contemporary romance and great fun to read!

The book begins with Ella moving from Los Angeles to Chicago to attend college with her boyfriend, David. She is very reluctant to embark on this new adventure, but David insists she needs to attend college with him at UChicago. Right from the beginning, we see how timid Ella is and how much she lets David control their relationship.  Add to this relationship David’s best friend and roommate, Cole, and you’ve got a recipe for disaster. Cole is everything David is not. He sees Ella for the woman she truly is and wants to encourage that part of Ella to emerge.

It was wonderful seeing Ella’s character grow and evolve throughout the book. Her two best friends, Morgan and Jody, try to help her see the differences between Cole and David. But it takes David completely botching a marriage proposal for Ella to see how far she let things go.

Is Ella able to put her life back together? And which man does she decide is truly right for her? Get Melissa Pearl’s book Fever and find out!

Just a note - since this book is NA, there is some mild sexual content.

Singing in the shower takes on a whole new meaning in Melissa Pearl's first New Adult Contemporary Romance. 

Ella Simmons does not want to move across the country. But she is, because her boyfriend has persuaded her to join him at UChicago to finish out her college education. Never able to tell him no, she hops on a plane and makes the trek from LA expecting to adjust to life like she's often forced to, but things are not that simple when she hears a luscious voice singing over her shower wall. His deep, sexy tenor makes her weak in the knees, spreading fire through her limbs and making her question everything about her life and relationship. 

Can one voice really have that much of an impact? 

Cole Reynolds is on his way out. In his final year at UChicago, the only thing he wants to do is finish school and get on with his life. But the sweet voice that interrupts his morning shower turns his world upside down. Compelled to find his shower songbird, he begins a search across campus. The only thing to distract him from this goal is his roommate's gorgeous girlfriend who's just arrived from LA - Ella Simmons. 

Relationships are put to the ultimate test as future dreams are questioned and friendships are thrown on the line for love.
