*Blog Tour/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.

This book was pure LOVE at first “smell”  for me *snickers*.  I absolutely flat out adored Caleb and all his British charm from the get go.  There was no having to make me fall in love with character, it happened effortlessly and instantly.

I loved Caleb and Teagan’s friends to lovers romance.   Just One Year had me laughing out loud and also tugged at my heart strings while being completely swoon worthy in true Penelope Ward fashion.

Both of these characters have troubled pasts and I loved reading how they help each other work through them and watching their story unfold.   This book was fast paced and kept me interested the entire time.  I read this beauty in one sitting which this author seems to have a knack for making me do with just about every single one of her books.  I never want to stop till the very last word!

I can’t wait to see what she gives us next.  Ms. Ward has always and will continue to be a go-to one-click author for me as I am sure to love whatever story she gives us!
