About this ebook

See what happens before the night that changes everything in this prequel novella to My One Night by NYT Bestselling Author Carrie Ann Ryan.

After mistakes and false starts, I thought I’d finally worked my life out. It took eighteen years before I found my brothers, the ones pushing me into this direction. Now I’m faced with another decision, a new school, and a set of roommates I didn’t know I needed.

Only after one glance at her, I know everything might change yet again.

I love Dillion Connolly and I am eagerly, not so patiently waiting for On My Own to release. He is swoon worthy, sweet and hot! The small introduction to Elise has me intrigued to see her adventure with Dillon unravel. This was the perfect taste to the new characters to have me addicted to read more.

I love prequels because we get glimpses of our characters before ‘the story’ begins. This was perfect for that! We meet our main character that is the link, Dillon, and even if we didn’t know him, we understand that there are things to know about him that will be in his story. Same for his new roommates, little glimpses of who they are, how they are, where they come from, and where they are, in life. And while we don’t get our meet cute, we get a glance, and the promise of that meet cute coming up 😊

O...M...G!! I have been waiting forever for Dillon's story and this was all we get? What a tease!! :P If I wasn't excited for his story before, I sure am now. I have to wait a month for the rest???? Aw man this is going to be the slowest month ever. If the full story is as good as this prequel, we are in for an amazing ride!! I can't wait!
