JUST ONE YEAR BY PENELOPE WARD

CLICK ON IMAGE FOR FULL REVIEW






BOOK DESCRIPTION
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.
So frustrating.
And…
Sometimes incredibly funny and endearingly sweet.
And hot.

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.

MY REVIEW

Penelope does it again with Just One Year. This story was angsty and emotional, heartfelt and hot as hell! I don't typically reach for college-age stories as much as I used to but I really feel like this one had it all. I felt classic Ward (think Stepbrother Dearest or Jake Undone) in this one which I absolutely LOVED!

"I'd always felt close to Teagan, but now she'd infiltrated my soul in a way tht felt irreversible."

Teagan is a loner. She keeps to herself in her family, dresses as to not stand out, and keeps up with her studies. She looks for relationships that won't be complicated, lacking love and attraction. Caleb enters her life at a time when she least expects it.

Their relationship starts off rocky to say the least. Not really friendly, just coexisting. After things progress, they realize their mutual feelings can't be ignored. Their romance is a whirlwind as Caleb's time in the US is limited. Their relationship is basically doomed from the start as they didn't want to get involved since they're on a time limit. Decisions are made, hearts are broken, but in the end we're left with a super sweet HEA for the ages!
