Well, if that wasn’t just the best 99 cents I’ve spent in a long time!
Just One Night is an eBook that picks up where Just One Year leaves off. It’s just 40 pages, but oh is it worth it.
I’ll be honest: I wasn’t 100% sure if we needed this novella. I usually hate when books leave us hanging or wanting a little bit at the end of the series, but given how much of Allyson & Willem’s story was about yearning and waiting … it made sense for them for Just One Year to end where it did.
I’m glad this quick little read exists because it was so lovely. Just like a dollop of whip cream & a cherry on top of a sundae. Necessary? No. But delicious? Oh, heck yeah.
If you haven’t started this series, get on it. Who else has read all the way through? Gayle Forman continues to solidify her spot in my Top Authors of All Time list.*
*Which I should totally write out and post sometime, huh?
