Prepare to fall head over heels. This is the perfect book for fans of Josie Silver, Richard Curtis and anyone who ever fell in love with the wrong person.
What if you couldn't get away from the one who got away?
Unlucky in love Jess is following her dream and moving to London. It's December, and she's taking a room in a crumbling Notting Hill house-share with four strangers. On her first night Jess meets Alex, the guy sharing her floor. They don't kiss under the mistletoe, but as far as Jess is concerned, the connection is instant. She lets herself imagine how their relationship will grow over the following year.
But when Jess returns from a 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.
Jess is determined to move on and survive the next 12 months...but love has a way of hampering even the best laid plans....
Set over the course of one life-changing year, this is the most uplifting and moving love story of 2019.
The story is cute and romantic. Events take place over the course of a year so it is quite a slow romance in terms of them getting together but it's so worth the wait. You get a good sense of how it's all going to play out so just relax, sit back and enjoy the journey.
The two protagonists begin the year with an instant attraction but they muck it up and end up dating other people. They spend the rest of the year being best friends and sight seeing around London together in their spare time. I loved those heart warming scenes where they spent a lot of time together and chatted.
I was pulled along with them, eagerly waiting for the eureka moment when they would finally get together.
I loved the dual narration in this book. Both narrators were excellent and the story was made that bit more dramatic by having the two.
If this came out as a Christmas movie I would definitely go see it. For a squeezy dose of feel good feelings this book is it!
I'm almost sorry I didn't save this one for Christmas Day. It's lovely.
