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 the men’s room. Don’t ask.)
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.

One thing I’ve learned in the many Penelope Ward books that I’ve read is that the author makes her characters work for the outcome they want, and in doing so, they demonstrate their strength and their ability to persevere even with all of the obstacles put in their path.
With a title like Just One Year, I knew going in that it would serve as a definitive time frame, an end date of sorts for any kind of relationship/friendship between the hero and heroine, and as I progressed in Teagan Carroll and Caleb Yates’ story, I found that my inference was on point, but what it inevitably meant for these two was so much more than either me or them anticipated.
Even though Teagan and Caleb’s initial meeting doesn’t leave a good impression with either one of them, slowly but surely, they form a friendship, an undeniable connection and then something so much more that they both seem to want so desperately but are afraid to get any further involved due to the fact that Caleb is headed back to England.
For their ages and everything they’re dealing with,Teagan and Caleb are far more mature than most college students, and while I enjoyed their rational decision making, I did want their emotions to be more of a factor…I wanted more of the angst that I usually find in Ward’s romances. In some of Ward’s other stories, I truly didn’t know how the hero and heroine would work things out so that they would ultimately end up together at the end, but in Just One Year, it wasn’t so much IF but WHEN, as long as all of the details and options were examined and rationally considered.
Like Teagan, I definitely couldn’t resist this hot Brit – he’s charming, swoonworthy, and real, which means that his flaws make him who he is and these two together are about as perfectly imperfect as they can be and deserve to find a way to be together for more than 365 days.
