Just One Night (Just One Day #2.5) by Gayle Forman

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.

I have liked this series and was so thrilled to have this novella as an epilogue of sorts for Allyson and Willem. My main complaints about the first two books in the series have been with the endings.   Just One Day (read my review here) ended on such a cliffhanger, and Just One Year (read my review here) ended at the same point in time that Just One Day did.  I was not happy about that----I was expecting more of the happily ever after, not just the journey there.  

I am so happy to say that Forman completely and utterly redeemed her blunders with the endings of books one and two with Just One Night.  NOW I feel like this series is finished.  Now I feel like I can move on with my life.  Now that I know Allyson and Willem are happy, I can go back and appreciate the first two books for the great pieces of writing that they are.  

Just One Night is the perfect conclusion to Allyson and Willem's story.  It was just long enough to satisfy my every desire for their relationship---declarations and plans for the future were made---yay!  I loved seeing them together at last and really reveling in each other.  

Just One Night has a finality to it that really pulls the books in the series together.  I so wish I'd read the three books back to back because I think I would have enjoyed the first two books so much more that way.  There's not anything I would have wanted to change about this book and I highly recommend it!
