JUST ONE YEAR IS LIVE!
From New York Times bestselling author Penelope Ward, comes a new standalone novel.
The beginning of my sophomore year in college was off to a rough start.
On the first day of orientation, I had an altercation with an infuriating British dude in a campus bathroom.
(The ladies’ room was out of order. So, I used the men’s room. Don’t judge.)
I got home later that night and realized that the foreign student we were expecting to rent a room in my parents’ house was allergic to our cat.
So, the spare room went to someone else: Caleb—the British guy from the men’s room.
And so it began…my love-hate story with Caleb Yates. Or was it hate-love in that order?
The guy knew how to push every one of my buttons.
Sometimes I’d email him to express my aggravation and disdain.
He’d actually rewrite my own words and send them back to me.
That was the type of infuriating person Caleb was.
Sometimes incredibly funny and endearingly sweet.
He eventually grew on me, and Caleb soon became one of my best friends that year.
too bad he was headed back to England soon, so nothing could happen between us—for so many reasons.
I definitely couldn’t fall in love with him, especially since all we had was just one year.
|Reading my first Book by Penelope Ward – which was “Stepbrother Dearest” is not something that is easily forgotten. Even if it has been years since I read it some of the moments still stay with me. And ever since I finished reading it I was hoping to read something of a similar plotline and intensity from her again.
Well now I have … and you can guess it … it was “Just one Year” – while the End of “Stepbrother Dearest” will forever be burned in my Heart – Just one Year just took a close second because I love her books with leads that are in the YA area.
(of her single written books – because her books with writing partner Vi Keeland are a whole different subject)
It was only the End that I somehow could not bring as close to my heart as I would have wished. Because while I might have understood that is was written because Ms. Ward listened to what the characters needed for their story – I as a reader didn’t need that specific string to love the book.
Still, this book is a straight 5 Star that pulled at my heartstrings and had me shedding some small tears (it seems the full-blown ugly cry number one will forever be cocky bastard #shruggs and I can live with that)
This book gives the devoted romance reader (like ME) everything you could wish for. I loved the banter from the first page on. The characters Ms. Ward writes might be not perfect but they are beautifully imperfect for each other and that is where the real magic is hidden.
And with every one of these plotlines – no matter if they are the co or alone written books this author always hides this little tidbit that will remain with the reader and whenever you notice in your everyday life it will remind you of these books.
This book is no different and I love that so while you should go and order this book – I will go and try to find that damn s’more “thingy”
