The story is not especially original or creative, but it is just soo sweet and cosy and really really nice to follow Jess and Alex through London. The whole book felt kinda "London-ish", in a good kind of way. My only real complaint is that the ending was way too short. After a year-long build-up, only a few sentences and a short epilogue was definitely a let-down. I also would have liked to get to know more about Jess' work at a publishing house. She doesn't tell a thing about it. From Alex we get at least glimpses of his work, but mostly it's only that he is totally knackered after yet another night-shift. Instead the author really focuses on their relationship with each other, and also with other people. Which is also fine with me. I felt comfortable in their company!
We Met in December
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.
