Release Blitz & Review - The Evolution of Us - D. Kelly

Title: The Evolution of Us
Author: D. Kelly
Genre: New Adult
Release Date: October 11, 2017


They say
most people meet the person they will marry while in high school. Balancing one
another perfectly, Holly Ryan and Declan James were together through most of
college—until their relationship blew up, leaving Declan with more questions
than answers.

For the
past two years, Declan has tried everything he can think of to earn Holly’s
forgiveness, but even if he manages to help her let go of the past and give
them another chance at happiness, she still has a secret. Not to mention, she
can’t get over the revolving door of women he seems to have coming in and out
of his apartment.

Declan is
desperate to prove to Holly she’s the one for him and isn’t above using his
celebrity status or enlisting the help of their friends to win her back. All’s
fair in love and war, right?

The Evolution of Us by D. Kelly is a heartfelt story between friends, lovers and family. I liked how the author writes this story in the past and present through-out the book. This story had secrets, made you think about life lessons whether good or bad. 

Declan and Holly are the main characters. They dated while they were teenagers and now in college will they be able to get a second chance. The other characters in this book, Baxter who is Declan’s friend and Sage who is Holly’s friend, play an important role in this story as well. The banter between all the characters was amazing. 

I liked how Declan would do whatever he had to do, to win her over and how he talks about her on his channel. Holly is a straightforward girl. She helps her author friend and wants to be a writer herself. She is hesitant and doesn’t think she is good enough for him. She has secrets and is afraid of losing him, I guessed what that was right away. 

This book was well written, easy to read, and kept me interested in the plot. The title is a great one for this book! To me this one was more of a romantic comedy. 

This is the first book I read by D. Kelly and it won’t be the last! Maybe we will find out about what happens to Baxter and Sage in books to come.    
Parts of the story I liked:

“Looks aren’t as important as how someone treats you. Inner beauty is much more attractive than outer beauty.”
“True love grows and strengthens each day. And when you find the right person to share and reciprocate love, it will be timeless. “

Star Ratings:
Plot- 4/5
