It is a captivating and thoroughly enjoyable read that will have readers who dont already know running to Wikipedia to find out what happens next. In Revolutionary America, there was little time and opportunity for romance. Marriages were practical, meant to strengthen alliances, join together two families, pass along wealth in exchange for title, rid a household of the burden of providing for their of age daughters. But when Alex met Eliza, he couldnt help but fall for her beauty, her wit, her more unassuming and practical nature. And although he knew that he didnt have a name or wealth to offer her, he hoped she might see past that to the man he was and would be. Eliza didnt want to like the handsome, charming and chivalrous aide-de-camp to Washington. Not when it was Alex who delivered the news of her fathers court-martial and went on to prosecute him for dereliction of duty. But his appreciation for her assistance with the troops and his affection for her that was unwavering for the more than two years since their first meeting, made it impossible for her not to return those feelings. But without letting his intentions be known to her and her family, they couldnt have a proper courtship. And with her familys insistence on marrying off their daughters posthaste and preferably to suitors of means, there was no time for Alex to prove himself worthy of courting Eliza. Which meant that if her family decided on a more suitable match for their daughter, any future they had hoped for together would be gone, and they would both remain forever heartbroken. Melissa de la Cruz adds in just the right amounts of history to make her story feel authentic and yet still keep it entertaining. She brings in humor to keep things light. And she keeps the focus on the subtle flirtations, the witty banter, the stolen moments that make up the romance between Alex and Eliza. For those readers who are just being introduced to Alexander Hamilton and Elizabeth Schuyler, ALEX & ELIZA promises to be a wonderful, sweet, and hopeful love story. Those who know a bit more about the two may find it a touch more bittersweet. But all who read this bewitching and irresistible romance will fall in love with Alex and Eliza’s love story and wish for it to be true. Check it out!
