We Met in December
Books | Fiction / Romance / Romantic Comedy
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.

"Dnf halfway through.<br/><br/>Well I'm 5 for 9 on dnf-ing Christmas/winter books this year. And to be upfront when I read holiday inspired books I expect atmosphere, festivities, and just overall joy. I'm about 1 for 9 on that subject but one must soldier on.<br/><br/>First off I didn't sense any chemistry between the main characters. It felt more like two people who didn't have anyone else to talk to or nothing to do so they hung out with each other. And I honestly wasn't fond of either of them to start with.They seemed a little too perfect both giving up stable jobs for their dreams of making the world a better place.<br/><br/>"What do you want a cookie?"<br/><br/>Jess seems quite shallow to me only remarking on Alex's looks. And Alex wasn't much better having a one night stand twice and saying this isn't me. Mm-hmm ok. I just felt nothing while reading this. Honestly the story was too repetitive and I started day dreaming while listening to the audiobook. This Christmas story romance need more heart."
