Description -
After spending one life-changing day in Paris with laid-back Dutch actor Willem De Ruiter, sheltered American good girl Allyson “Lulu” Healey discovered her new lover had disappeared without a trace. Just One Day followed Allyson’s quest to reunite with Willem; Just One Year chronicled the pair’s year apart from Willem’s perspective. Now, back together at last, this delectable e-novella reveals the couple’s final chapter.

My Rating: 5 stars

So I wasn't going to review this because I don't normally review novellas but I thought I would put together a sentence or two on this book. My problem is that I was completely fine with the way Just One Year ended, shocking right? I think I might have been the only one! Having said that this book was written for the fans who were disappointed by it. It was fun to quickly immerge myself back into this world and it was a fun quick thirty minute read but essentially it was pointless. Fun and enjoyable? Yes. Necessary? For me, no. I do really like that a lot of it was about all the people that helped them get to this moment and find each other. And again this book was everything it was meant to be but for someone like me for loved the ending of Just One Year it was slightly pointless. I'm confident that the fans who have been waiting for forever for this will be more than happy with it but in the end I was fine with the way it was originally tended to end with Just One Year. I don't regret reading it, I still gave it five stars cause it was fun and everything you really could have hoped for, and it was nice the immerse myself in the world once more.

Would I Recommend This? Yes
Who To? People who were unhappy with the ending of Just One Year
Will I read more from this author(or series)? Of course!
