No Ordinary Love is an excellent book by Elaine Allen. The book will keep you reading and loving it until the end.
Love is a wonderful thing if found with the right person. Casey, Briannah, and Catrina all have grown up together. As friends they have endured heartaches, pain, loss, grief and happy times together.
No Ordinary Love covers it all, relationships riddled by misunderstandings and an overall lack of communication. This was an easy read that addressed real life issues of infidelity, miscarriage, abortion, and drugs.
The story captured me from the beginning. I anticipated every chapter. I enjoyed all of the ups and downs, break ups, make ups, the whole nine yards of the couple’s relationships. The story was very easy to follow and flowed very well. In this novel you will discover friendships riddled by sex, lies, and love in this coming of age drama. As you read you think you are watching a Lifetime movie.
Casey and Catrina grow up running the streets of North Philadelphia, chasing their childhood dreams and their childhood men. Casey has loved Daemon since she was a teen and is dead set on making him hers. Daemon sees her as nothing more than his best friend’s niece but Casey is determined to make him see her as more.
Catrina has been in and out of love with David for as long as she’s been dating, and can’t get a handle on her heart or on him. Could be because while he’s claiming one love, in her mind there’s always the possibility that he’s still searching for it somewhere else.
The editing could have been better. There were missing words and punctuation, and it did distract somewhat when I was reading, but I so enjoyed the book. Through all the pains and heartaches that they encountered, love conquered all at the end. Great read and I recommend this book to all. It’s a wonderful storyline. The characters are very well built.
