I would highly recommend The Reason is You to fans of romantic women's fiction."-Novel Reflections

Andie Fremont's boyfriend has just proposed in front on all their friends and his co-workers. What does Andie do? She vomits. It was hilarious.

Andie is ready for marriage. She isn't even sure how they ended up getting so serious. Even if she was ready to take the next step, she didn't want to do it front of a crowd. She tries to explain this to her boyfriend, but he thinks she is just nervous. So, he tells her to take 24 hours to get her head straight.

So, Andie hits the road. She thinks some time away may help her make the right decision. She ends up stopping for waffles and finds herself in Jesse Montgomery restaurant.

Jessie and Andie had known each other when they were just teens. They fell into love/lust one day at the beach. But, Jessie left. Leaving Andie with a broken heart.

I bet you think you know what happens next. Well, you are wrong! I was so surprised by the turn of the book that I had to read parts of it twice. It goes from being a romantic novella to being some sort of para-normal thing. (Don't worry. No vampires, demons, or shape shifters here.)

Then they discover their lives are linked in the most unbelievable way, and Jessie believes that Andie is trying to set him up. At that point, I actually rolled my eyes a bit. Yes, I am crazy. Only a crazy person would roll their eyes at a book, Right?

Even with the silliness, I still liked this novella. Well, I did up until the very end. What kind of ending was that? It was like it stopped right in the middle of the story. I would say it was a cliffhanger, but I could not find another book that finished their story. Believe me I tried. I hope this author writes them an HEA these two and ending. They need one.

My Review:
There is so much to this little novella. It's a little astounding because it really does only cover one day, but it's truly so much more.

Andie's been dating Brad for two years. She's 43, has a daughter in college, and a divorce under her belt. By all appearances she's pretty settled in life...until Brad pops the question and she panics. He's fine with that even though she threw up when he asked her in front of 60 of his closest friends...so he gives her 24 hours to think it over. She takes off driving and ends up at a roadside diner...where something magical happens.

This is my third Sharla Lovelace read and I absolutely am a HUGE fan. Romance is magical and she always adds that tiny, paranormal, magical touch to her books that I just love. This one is all about...FATE!

happy sigh.

It's a great little novella. There's amazing action in it...did not see that coming. And a set of coincidences that leaves no doubt that fate is real. Andie and Jessie had a single 24 hours, 22 years ago. They have a second chance in this book and it's so good....so sweet....so romantic. I loved it! The little ties that bind them together all through the story....LOVED. It's a book about second chances and having things happen when they should. It was a great story and I loved every single moment of reading it.

"Brad Marcus had spared nothing to celebrate our two-year anniversary, with sixty of our closest friends, of which I kind of knew four."

In this story we meet Andie who is 44 years old and in a two year relationship. Her boyfriend proposes to her and she just isn't sure and needs time. He gives her 24 hours for her to sort it out and expects an answer. Brad seems like a typical type A personality. Andie feels like she should know after 2 years, but does she truly love Brad?

"The little white box squeaked open, the crowd gasped in unison, as if on cue. The oddest thought zipped by as I wondered if that was staged, but that could have just been the lack of oxygen to my brain."

A lot of circumstances bring her into running into her old flame (well kind of, you need to read it to understand that part lol) right before a huge storm sets in which forces her to give up her precious 24 hours being stuck with him. Jesse has had his own rough past and as she learns more about him, the more she questions what her answer to Brad will be.

"Maybe I wanted to see what day two with you looks like."

My overall thoughts on the book are good. I really enjoyed the story. It was a lighter story but with some deep things thrown in. I could really connect with Andie being as she is closer to age in me than the heroines in most of the books I read. Even though Brad is made out to be "the bad guy" I felt for him. I am sure he has had some things in his past that have made him the way he is. I also feel like I know people just like him in real life. Ahhhh and Jesse. I love that man. He is PERFECT. Maybe it is his age, or maturity, but I just fell hard for him. The book is very short (approximately 100 pages?

Note: some minor spoilers contained in this review.

After I read Don't Let Go I was excited to check out some of the author's other work. When I saw Just One Day out on Amazon I quickly gobbled it up, but now I really don't know why I bothered.

Sharla Lovelace wrote her other book with a fair amount of spark and chemistry. Her characters were honest, caring, a little messed up yet willing to throw themselves back into their problems to try and find a little peace so they could move on. I loved and admired their feistiness, their courage and their stubbornness. They had passion and zest and were truly lovable characters. When I started this, I kept that in mind and expected something similar. Somewhere along the way Sharla Lovelace went very wrong though...

Just One Day's characters were truly frightful. I couldn't stand a single one of them; they continually justified their rather blatant mistakes to make themselves feel better, one of them was cheating on her boyfriend (is that the right word?) but said it was because "fate" meant it to happen and all this other nonsense.

Also some events were blown completely out of proportion. She had sex with one guy just after a enormous storm/flood hit his house. By "just after", I mean literally the time it took to crawl out of the pantry she had been hiding in and jump him as he came down the stairs. The whole time they did it on the floor, the roof was collapsing around them and waters were sweeping so strongly around them that her car was carried off. I really don't think that is the most appropriate time to be doing that! Safety first surely...?

The characters weren't even likable as people, disregarding their actions.
