About the Author
Ella Medler is a U.K. author and free-lance editor. She writes fiction in more than one genre, in a seemingly vain attempt to slow down her overactive brain enough to write non-fiction on subjects she knows a thing or two about. She also does not believe in the starchy use of English, and ignores the type of rule that doesn’t allow for a sentence to be finished in a preposition. Her books are action-driven, and well-developed characters are her forte. Loves: freedom. Hates: her inner censor.

The characters in Trial Run were well thought out and easily believable. It is sometimes so hard to do a review without being a spoiler. So I will do my best.
First this is about Amelie and her need to be self sufficient and independent, however despite her good intentions sometimes things just don't work out the way she planned. Her brother Jason has been her guardian since their parents tragically died. He's also in charge of the money left to them and her inheritance doesn't come to her until she is 25. So she has been trying to find ways to make her brother give up the money early....
Now he decides to plan something of his own, to teach her a lesson and convinces his long time friend (who just happens to be back in town) to help him out.....
Well, sometimes the best made plans do not work out and this is one of those times. Rob and Amelie find themselves in a crazy situation... (I REALLY DO NOT WANT TO BE A SPOILER)
Needless so say the time they spend together reignites the feelings she thought she no longer had and she also realizes that maybe having a man in your life may not be so bad or could it be the worse mistake ever?
Ella writes with descriptions that put you in the scene, enough to make you be able to see and smell the area. You will also fall in love with the characters..... At times I wanted to shake each one of them and even slap her brother. Another time I was in tears worrying about Rob....
The story flowed seamlessly and I didn't want to put it down!
I would love to see these characters again and will be reading more of the books Ella writes in the Addicted To Love series.
Enter Rob, the knight in shining armor. I loved the banter back and forth between them and the writer took careful steps, I suppose to keep the reader wondering just when the sparks would ignite and ...well you know, when they would consummate the darn relationship. When they did, I jumped for joy! The book has a fun tempo, lots of romance and you'll find yourself rooting for Amelie to grow up and make those good decisions.
This was my first Ella Medler book to read, and I can tell you - it won't be my last! Kudos Ms. Medler...I'm a fan!
Rob had three states of being: being annoyed by "princess Amelie" and how she was a helpless female, constantly wanting to have sex with Amelie, and thinking Amelie was amazing. How very contradictory of him. He redeemed himself in the end, which Amelie's brother Jason never did (in my opinion, anyway).
There are funny moments in this book and some touching parts as well. I found that the second half of the book was more enjoyable than the first half, and the epilogue was cute.
I've been a little busy lately. I was so busy I kept putting off reading Trial Run because I just didn't have time to sit down with it. But this last weekend, I crashed. I needed some serious down time, so I hung out with this book and a nice cup of hot tea. I needed to get lost for awhile, and Trial Run didn't disappoint. I'm not big on giving spoilers, so I won't. I'll tell you that it's the story of Amelie and Rob, who have known each other for forever. She's had a crush on him since high school, and he was her older brother's best friend, who has come to spend some holiday time catching up. Needless to say, Rob and Amelie manage to get into a little trouble on their path to finding love.
I adored this book. It took me a few pages to get into it, but once I did, man, I'm really glad I did. I definitely give this one 5 stars! I'm pretty sure fans of contemporary romance will love it too!
