Just a year is too much time to spend apart from the man you love, but Seth has a carefully crafted plan for how to make it work. Taking an internship four hours away from Maddox may not have been the smartest choice Seth has ever made, but he is determined to make it work. Until life throws a wrench in his plans and turns his and Maddox’s world upside down.

It’s time for Seth to graduate and take on an internship which is a bit farther away than Maddox expected. Seth goes ahead with his plan telling himself it’s just a year. They managed before so this should work too. However Seth feel doubts, even with his boyfriend’s support and then it’s the looming worry over his father who seems different.

Here Seth battles the worry and uncertainty his choices give him. The way he wants to avoid the uncomfortable by sticking his head in the sand feels so close to home. The whole long-distance also puts strain on his relationship. Just as well written as the first book of this series and I enjoy how Jena Wade writes, making me see and feel the characters’ emotions. The characters grow and changes with the story and pulls me along. The ending is somewhat open but leaving it off at a good point, although I can predict many wanting to read more about these characters.
It is possible to read this book as a stand-alone but I recommend you read both as you will get the full experience.

Advanced Review Copy

Galley copy of Just A Year provided by the author in exchange of an honest review.

Well written story with realistic characters if you want something good but a bit shorter.


  • Uh…this book sounds intriguing, but “Just A #2” seems like a very unfortunate title. I mean, not a good visual. Just sayin’.

    • Since the first book of the series is called Just A Week and the second book is Just A Year and the titles are very fitting, I guess Just A series follows.

Reading, to me, is as close to an addiction as one can come without crossing the line... completely. I read a lot, and many different genres. I'd love to hear if my reviews helped you, so feel free to comment :)
