Sophia has seven days left in Tokyo before she moves back to the States. Seven days to say good-bye to the electric city, her wild best friend, and the boy she’s harbored a semi-secret crush on for years. Seven perfect days…until Jamie Foster-Collins moves back to Japan and ruins everything.
Jamie and Sophia have a history of heartbreak, and the last thing Sophia wants is for him to steal her leaving thunder with his stupid arriving thunder. Yet as the week counts down, the relationships she thought were stable begin to explode around her. And Jamie is the one who helps her pick up the pieces. Sophia is forced to admit she may have misjudged Jamie, but can their seven short days of Tokyo adventures end in anything but good-bye?
Disclaimer: I received a physical ARC of this book from Novl in exchange for an honest review!
First of all, I’d like to say that I absolutely adored this book! I’ve always loved the Japanese culture so it was interesting to learn about their culture through the eyes of a girl who had originally lived there, moved to the United States, and then moved back. Despite being born there, Sophia wasn’t fluent in the Japanese language and attended a school that spoke English.
There was a nice slow build for the relationship between her and Jamie, as well, despite the book only lasting seven days. I loved the fact that Cecilia started each chapter with how many days, hours, minutes, and seconds Sofa, David and Mika’s nickname for Sophia, had. It surprisingly didn’t feel rushed at all – which was not what I had been expecting considering, yet again, the book took place in seven days. There were some flashbacks so that you could get more of a backstory which was quite nice.
I also loved Cecilia’s writing, there were a few editing mistakes here and there but that’s to be expected in an ARC and there were surprisingly not enough in there that it would have driven me nuts (I’m rather big on making sure that books I read don’t have mistakes in them or I sit there and stare at whatever word was messed up…. my friends actually let me correct the mistakes in their books…) I’m definitely looking forward to seeing what else she may come up with, maybe a sequel to Seven Days of You?
The book is released on March 9, 2017! If you like contemporary romances, I highly recommend that you check this one out!!!
