Review: On Ellicott Street by Davee Jones

As Cassie approaches fifty; she believes she missed her opportunity for love. Raising her youngest son, Joshua, alone, she faces challenges that overshadow her personal needs. Over the years, she lost touch with her essence, vibrancy, and femininity. Long ago, she accepted monotony and loneliness as her destiny. Fate intervenes in the form of a program to help Joshua adjust to his own young adulthood, where she meets Ellicott, or Eli. However, Eli, an intellectual old soul disguised as a beautiful younger man also realizes Cassie’s needs as they discuss some of the most personal details of her life. Cassie fascinates Eli and she arouses him mentally and physically. For them, age makes no difference; it makes her more beautiful to him, as Eli renews Cassie’s faith in romance. As their connection deepens, they stimulate each other’s minds, as well as their physical desires, to a smoldering level of passion.

Davee Jones entertains in her charming, lighthearted novella, On Ellicott Street.

After her divorce, Cassie Stewart, a woman in her late forties, focuses on raising her teenage son, Joshua, and sacrifices her personal life in the process. After Joshua acts out in school, Cassie meets Ellicott Street, who runs the program to which Joshua has been referred. Even though Cassie is many years older than Ellicott, she is attracted to the very handsome program coordinator. Quite believably, Jones offers Cassie’s assessment of her own physical attributes and her worries about what a man might think of her curves, sagging skin, and stretch marks.  Since I’m of similar age, I could really relate to Cassie as a woman and a mom. At their first meeting, Ellicott sees Cassie as a beautiful and intelligent woman. Therefore, the age difference isn’t important to him. For Ellicott, getting to know Cassie and discovering what makes her happy is of supreme importance, which makes him the best kind of leading man. Ellicott and Cassie are a couple to cheer for because they fit each other, intellectually and physically.

Those who love realistically portrayed characters and a beautiful love story will find On Ellicott Street the perfect book to curl up with.
