We Met in December by Rosie Curtis
What if you couldn’t get away from the one who got away?
This December, unlucky-in-love Jess is following her dream and moving to Notting Hill. On the first night in her new house-share she meets Alex, the guy in the room next door. They don’t kiss under the mistletoe, but there’s still a spark that leaves Jess imagining how they might spend the year together – never mind the house rule against dating…
But when Jess returns from her Christmas holiday, she finds Alex has started seeing Emma, who lives on the floor above them. Now Jess faces a year of bumping into the man of her dreams – and, apparently, the woman of his.
Jess is determined to move on and spend the year falling in love with London, not Alex – but what if her heart has other ideas?
This is a sweet slow burning romance with a modern feel. Many chick lits have for their backdrops the premise of moving away from a city and into the gentler less harried and hurried world of the countryside. This book is a reversal.of that, and reading it almost made me feel like a student again, with house shares and crazy schedules and impromptu drinking sessions. But the romance is there in spades and the underlying message is to follow your heart.
