HE is trying to piece together his broken life.
SHE is running away from her wedding day.
THEY meet in San Francisco.
From the beginning they agree not to exchange anything truthful about their lives, not even their real names. Instead, as they embark on an unplanned tour of California, they construct the perfect lives they wish they led. As they hide behind grandiose stories, witty banter, and suggestive winks, their romance blooms. But when their dark pasts finally catch up, will they have the courage be who they really are and find a future together?
He + She is a free-spirited romance about soul-awakening second changes, heartbreak, and hopeful beginnings.

Holy plot twist Batman! I did not see that coming!
If you want a change from the usual romance books, then this is the book for you. It’s fresh and vibrant, and it blindsided me completely.
I loved Hew & Shea, they just ‘got’ each other, and they didn’t push for more than the other was willing to give. I loved how they chose to let fate decide the path their relationship should take, and their willingness to accept each other at face value. What you see is what you get. They knew nothing about the other, even their names were made up. But for a few short days they had fun and were able to try and put their pasts behind them. As their connection grows, the walls they have built start to come down little by little until it culminates in a jaw dropping moment that had me exclaiming out loud, distracting my husband from the football on TV (which takes a lot of doing believe me!)
The fall out from that point onwards was utterly heart-breaking, as the full extent of past events were revealed. I hoped that they would both overcome the binds that had enveloped them for so long, and allow Hew and Shea to truly move on.
I could gush on and on about the writing style of Michelle Warren, how she weaves a beautiful story then leaves you open mouthed with shock, but I don’t want to spoil what is a truly unique book.
