Just the Way You Are by Lexi Ryan is another well-written story about love and second chances. This is the second installment in the Decadence Series. It is followed by Just One Night (Decadence Creek). Although, this is the second of the series, I believe this can be a stand alone read. However, Stacey and Harrison were featured in Just One Night as well, so I would recommend reading that one first just to get a better grip of this series. This second addition to the series did not disappoint. We were briefly introduced to Stacey and Harrison in book one, which was their wedding that everyone was attending. This is their story and goes into depth about why they both agreed to a temporary marriage. Stacey and Harrison also have a past together as well. After many years apart, they're reunited again in marriage to save Stacey's mom's beloved house. Despite many years of separation, sparks still fly between these two and keeping their hands off each other proves a lot harder than they think. I highly enjoyed Just One Night (Decadence Creek) and this one was no different. Packed into this novella were surprisingly high amounts of emotions- heartache, sorrow, pain of loss. Stacey and Harrison were a great couple and I loved Harrison for his sweet & caring ways towards Stacey. Stacey never had it easy growing up & it was great to see someone love her for all that she is. This story was quite different in that the author switches between past and present to tell of Stacey and Harrison's past to the reader which I really enjoyed. The glimpses into their past added more to the story, making this read that much more enjoyable for me. In all, Just The Way You Are was a wonderful read. Despite its shortness, this story did not lack in character or plot development. It was well-written & packed in a lot in just 63 pages. Novellas usually leave me without much satisfaction because they're harder to deliver, but Ms. Ryan executed this one beautifully. I highly enjoyed reading every minute of this story & would highly recommend it.

Talk about, "I did NOT see that coming". This book is amazing. I wish it were longer... Like an extra 500 pages longer.

Words can't express my anger! This story was 60 pages!!! Please BN, respect the $ of the poor. This was a short story- a essay. To add insult to injury, this story was poorly edited. It was rushed therefore scenes were not properly developed. Overall, i would not recommend this book and i would caution readers about any ratings above one star? Im soooo angry that BN continue to steal money from me and others

Just the Way You Are has the makings of every first love story with complicated twists and heart aches that all real women know. Romance, true love, sorrow, regret and a painful past are the ingredients of this wonderful short novella. A must read for anyone who remembers their first love...
