We Met in December by Rosie Curtis #Romance #BookReview #NetGalley


Following a year in the life of a twenty-something British woman who falls hard for her London flat mate, this clever, fun, and unforgettable romantic comedy is the perfect feel-good holiday read.

Two people. One house. A year that changes everything.  

Twenty-nine-year-old Jess is following her dream and moving to London. It’s December, and she’s taking a room in a crumbling, but grand, Notting Hill house-share with four virtual strangers. On her first night, Jess meets Alex, the guy sharing her floor, at a Christmas dinner hosted by her landlord. They don’t kiss, but as far as Jess is concerned the connection is clear. She starts planning how they will knock down the wall between them to spend more time together.

But when Jess returns from a two-week Christmas holiday, she finds Alex has started dating someone else—beautiful Emma, who lives on the floor above them. Now Jess faces a year of bumping into (hell, sharing a bathroom with) the man of her dreams…and the woman of his.

My Review

A feel good romance!

At the urging of her grandmother, Jess travels to London with the dream of starting a new phase of her life. When a college friend offers a flat in a grand old mansion in Notting Hill, she jumps at the chance and soon becomes enamored with roommate Alex.

Unfortunately, he’s interested in the girl living on the next floor and now Jess’s dream has turned into a nightmare.

This story started out slow for me, but it had some sweet moments that kept me turning the pages. The standout for me came with the author’s quaint, quirky descriptions of London. It made me want to go there for a visit!

I give We Met in December 4 lovely kisses- Not bad!

    Perfect example of if you snooze, you lose, lol. But I bet she didn’t in the end.
