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.

To short. Why did this have to be this short? These are the thoughts that are running through my head as soon as I turned the last page. Gayle Forman has ripped my heart from my chest so many times and she did it again with this. Yes I do realize when she said that this was going to be the last chapter but I was hoping she was teasing. Just a little.

I fell in love with Allyson and Willem from the beginning. They have gone on an adventure to find each other. I wondered how Forman could just end it like she did in Just One Year and I knew deep down inside that she was going to come out with something to and end the series correctly.

Allyson and Willem will have my heart for years to come. Allyson went through so much to find him as well as Willem. Their love for one another is just amazing that I cannot seem to think how I could ever forget about them. They have grown so much and their adventures have made their love for one another so much stronger. I hate to see them go but I know I will remember them always.

There is so much that I could talk about but I would rather have you read the last chapter and see for yourselves. Gayle Forman writes a compelling ending that will leave you wanting more but overall satisfied. I wonder whose love story she will write next.

I give this book 5 bites!

    I’ve got to read this. Like a bunch of people, I found the end of Just One Year a little abrupt and wanted more. So glad you liked this, even though you still wanted even more!

    My only complaint about the first two books was that I needed a little more to see how things turned out, so I preordered this and read it the moment it landed in my kindle and was 100% satisfied! I finally got the conclusion I needed!
