Five Days Until You by Monica Murphy

Five Days Until You by Monica Murphy

Unsure. That's how I'm feeling about my entire life. Just when everything's good and I have it all under control, my girl Chelsea decides she's going to leave me for the summer. Despite my disappointment, I have to support her. It's what she wants, an opportunity she can't say no to and no way will I be the one to stop her. I love her too much to hold her back. 

Opportunities are happening for me too, though. A big one that my brother-in-law Drew says I can't pass up. I'm working extra hard. So is Chelsea. It's like we don't have any time to get together. We keep making the same promise--only five more days until we see each other again. But we keep breaking that promise. Is our relationship strong enough to survive all of these changes?


     I have been following this series since the very first book and each one just makes me love these characters even more. Chelsea and Owen are my one of my favorite book couples so I was very excited when I found out this novella was continuing their story.

     Five Days Until You is a novella continuing Chelsea and Owen's story not long afterFour Years Later. Sort of knowing how the book is going to end, the story is a relatively light and enjoyable read even through the more dramatic scenes. The relationship between Chelsea and Owen was just as sweet and romantic as it was in Four Years Later and I loved that it stayed consistent. The only reason this book isn't rated higher is because it wasn't that original and it wasn't a novella that will stick in my head, which I understand. I just felt that it was kind of just an add on story that would have worked at the end of Four Years Later and maybe didn't need a whole book to itself. 

     In conclusion, if you are a huge fan of this series or want a little bit more of the characters, then buy they novella and enjoy it. Otherwise, I personally don't think there is anything too important that you need to know to continue the series. But it is a great addition to this series, and I do recommend reading it if you have the chance.
