We Met in December by Rosie Curtis

Thank you to @tlcbooktours and @williammorrowbooks for the gifted book! ⁣⁣

Do plan on reading any holiday books this season?

I do, but I decided to start with this one which is more “seasonal” than holiday… but still just as fun!

“Curtis has a gift for capturing complex emotion and both romantic and platonic intimacy. The witty dialogue, loyal friendships, and endearing romance are sure to capture readers’ hearts.” (Publishers Weekly (starred review))

This one actually spans an entire year – starting in December and ends the following year in, yep, you guessed it, December!

It’s your classic – right place, wrong time romance, and – will they or won’t they storyline. And I thought it was adorable!

When Jess starts crushing on her London flatmate, she’s sure Alex is the man of her dreams. But the house rules are clear – no dating roommates.

So when she goes away for the holidays and returns to find him secretly dating another girl living in the house, Jess is crushed. Not only does she decide to keep their relationship a secret, but she has to bury her feelings all year long – all while living under the same roof.

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

Worst nightmare ever right?!

I thought this one was really cute. A really fun group of characters and a budding friendship that you wish the whole way through will turn out to be true love. You’ll totally feel all the classic frustrations: “Just tell her how you feel already!” and “Kiss him why don’tcha!” all while rooting for the eventual hookup and demise of the “other girl” relationship.

All the fun feelings, for all the right reasons – and a perfect read to start the holiday season. It’s a light and feel-good rom-com that is great if you like sweet romances without the steam.

I hope you’ll check this one out – it’s on sale now!

About the Book:

We Met in December coverFollowing 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.
