Surviving The Rachel by Aven Ellis


 Bree Logan is ready to start her post-college life, but when she’s dumped by The One, unable to land a professional job, and has to move back in with her parents, she doesn’t think things can get worse until she ends up with her hair chopped into The Rachel, the infamous haircut made famous by the show Friends. Which is not good since it’s no longer 1994. But sometimes you have to go through challenges to get what you really need, and for Bree, could that include a different career and a romance with Jack Chelten, the boy-next-door?


I've received this book from the author.

Bree thought her life was going to be perfect after graduating, but now that she has a degree she doesn't feel that confident any longer. Her boyfriend has dumped her, she can't find a job and she's moved back in with her parents, because she didn't have enough money to rent something on her own. To cheer herself up she spends all the money she has left on an expensive haircut at an exclusive salon. Unfortunately the modern version of The Rachel, named after Rachel in friends, isn't a very good style for her. She's feeling so bad about herself, but then she meets Jack. He's living next door, so being back with her parents has also got some advantages. Bree likes him straight away, but is she ready for new love and is Jack? He's been single for a while after a bad relationship. Is it too soon for either of them or will they be able to make it work?

Bree is a bright and sweet girl. She knows she's got what it takes to be great at any job in her field, but she doesn't get the chance to go to an interview. Her confidence is slowly disappearing until she meets Jack. Jack is a very sweet guy and they get along so well. Both of them are sensitive people and they make each other happy. Jack helps Bree with her job search and Bree helps Jack to heal. I loved that. Of course there are obstacles as well and they both have to be strong to survive them.

Aven Ellis's books are sweet, she writes feel-good stories that put a smile on my face the entire time I'm reading. Bree and Jack are such a cute couple and that's what made this book so enjoyable. They do the right thing, they are friendly and kind and I wanted them to be happy so much. They deserved it. That's the magic of any book written by this author. I really like reading about great people who have so much love to give, which makes her stories absolutely wonderful, it works every time.


  1. This title caught my attention because I was wondering what it meant. When I read that it actually meant that 90's haircut I wasn't sure whether to laugh it off or read more. Sounds like a cute, fun, happy read!!
