Move over Harry and Sally, sit down Ross and Rachel, there’s a new will-they-won’t-they romance in town! Enter Nic and Ruby: perfect for each other, but crossed by the stars even as they meet under them for the very first time...

It’s his first night in London. And her last...

Ruby’s leaving London. She’s not running away from her ex per se, but an exciting opportunity in a new city has landed at the perfect time.

Nic is moving to London. After a bad break-up, he’s excited to see where big-city life could take him.

When a chance meeting throws the pair of them together for just one night, it’s clear that this could be the start of something special. But there’s one problem: she’s leaving, and he’s just arriving. So, after tonight, they’ll never see each other again . . . will they?

From the international bestseller comes a story of two strangers, two cities, and one night that changes everything.

‘Sexy, fun and full of heart.’ Beth O’Leary, author of The Flatshare

One Night With You by Laura Jane Williams is a delightful story about friendship, romance, and being true to yourself.  

Ruby lives in a flat in London with her best friends, Jackson and Candice.  After a recent breakup, Ruby decides to move to Manchester to attend a prestigious film school to pursue her dream of making documentaries.  On her last night in London, she meets Nic, who came over to buy her couch, and they are immediately attracted to each other.  They spend her last night in London, and his first night in London together.  

Ruby has decided to dedicate her year at film school to be the Year of Ruby, where she totally dedicates her time to being the best version of herself.  She has vowed to avoid relationships, and focus on herself.  She enjoys living in Manchester and the film school and her film school friends.  She runs into Nic a few times as he befriended her roommates back in London.  They develop a friendship and their attraction to each other doesn’t go away.  

I enjoyed Ruby’s friendship with Jackson and Candice, as they have a good solid bond at the beginning of the book.  I enjoyed the chemistry between Ruby and Nic, and enjoyed following them as they each explored their new cities.  I will say I thought the book bogged down a bit in the middle, there was a bit too much of will they, won’t they and it seemed like forever before they could get together.  

I recommend this book to anyone who loves a good romcom.  I received a complimentary copy of this book.  The opinions expressed in this review are completely my own.

    This one does sound great, I do love rom coms & I keep seeing this one 💕

  3. Eeek! This is one of my favorite romances of the year so far. To me, Laura can do no wrong. She’s one of my favorite authors and I just have a blast every time I read one of her books. This one unexpectedly made me cry a few times too! I enjoyed every moment of it. I’m glad you liked it as well 🙂

    Oh yes all that ‘will they, won they?’ can get a bit boring when we all know it will be a HEA.

  5. Her last night in London and his first night in London… figures!😂 Wonderful review Wendy. I don’t think I have this one and now I want to read it!🤗💜📚
