New Release Review: Just One Year by Penelope Ward


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. 
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: 5 stars!

I read Just One Year in one sitting- it so was fantastic I couldn't put it down! My son sat down to read with me (poor kid was having to read for an English class assignment and I was so glad my read was for pleasure and much more enjoyable than his) and long after he got up, I just kept reading. Just One Year was emotional and angsty and full of fantastic banter, hilarious moments and so much steam. I always have a soft spot for quirky heroines, being a bit quirky myself, and I'll never turn down a British hero. I count Penelope Ward as one of my favorite authors who never disappoints.
