Book Description

Discover friendships riddled by sex, lies, and love in this coming of age drama...

We think that when one door closes another one opens. What if love had a revolving door?

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 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 possibly that he's still searching for it somewhere else…….

With the help of each other, their friend Briannah, and time they learn that Love is anything other than Ordinary

I actually got this book for free strolling for books and almost passed up the read only because lately I've been disappointed with most books but I'm glad I Did not. Most would probably think of it as a fairy tale read but to me it was nice it had a lil bit of drama the men in this book did their thing young but was smart enough to invest early it wasn't so hardcore the women were independent and smart. It kept my attention. so yes I would recommend this book

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.

Love can be a wonderful thing if found with the right person. In this novel, Casey, Briannah, and Catrina all have basically grown up together. As lifelong friends they have endured heartaches, pains, loss, grief and a lot of very happy times together.

I so love a romantic love story and this novel, "No Ordinary Love," captured me from the beginning. I anticipated every chapter, enjoyed all of the ups and downs, break ups, make ups, the whole nine yards of the couples' relationships. The story was very easy to follow and flowed very well. I would love to read more about these couples and I'm happy to see that the author will be writing more about some of the characters in the book, yet did not leave us hanging with a non-ending like I see so often these days.

My only complaint is the editing could have been a lot better. There were missing words and punctuation. It did distract somewhat when I was reading but I so enjoyed the book that I will just ask that in the future there should be a greater emphasis on proper punctuation and proofing. If not for that, this would really be a 5-star novel. Unfortunately, because I felt the lack of proper editing took away from the story I am giving the novel a 4.5-star rating.

Elaine L. Allen has another couple of novels and e-books coming out this summer; I will be awaiting them and have found another author that I will definitely continue to read.

I wasn't sure how well I would like this book because I'm not into love stories, however, I really enjoyed it. It had just the right amount of drama to keep me interested. It made me smile, laugh, and wasn't overly mushy. I would read more books by this author.

3.5 stars. Upon reading the story I became aggravated with Catrina for her back and forth; neither forgiving nor forgetting David's transgressions. You can love anyone you choose all day long but if there's no trust you're wasting your time as well as theirs.

With that being said...I had to reflect back and view the story from the younger me. Before the wisdom of life, love, and womanhood. Once I did that a different picture emerged and it showed me that this was the story of an imperfect couple who had to go through the things they went thru until each was able to forgive themselves for creating the situations that kept them apart

This story was very refreshing! No best friends sleeping with each other boyfriend, or etc. Overall, I really did enjoy the storyline and the transition was very smooth from characters (and years in between) I love all of the main characters! There are no complaints from me and that is why I have to give it five stars. I am a sucker for happy endings and “No Ordinary Love” gave me that, kudos to the Author! A great story and I do recommend to others!

I enjoyed this book just did not like the ending quite a few loose ends left. I hope this means a second part will be written to tie up all the loose ends.
