Publisher's Summary

Following a year in the life of a 20-something British woman who falls hard for her London flat mate, this clever, fun, and unforgettable romantic comedy is the perfect feel-good holiday listen.

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.

No Chemistry, no atmosphere

Dnf halfway through.

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.

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.

"What do you want a cookie?"

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.

Sweet but boring

All of the fluff of a Sophie Kinsella novel but none of the humor that makes them great.

A cute romance!

I’ve been drawn to quite a few books lately that take place in London. This is a cute story of Jess and Alex who meet when they each rent a room from a mutual friend in Notting Hill. Jess is new to London so Alex shows her around and they become good friends while walking and talking their way through London. They start to have feelings for one another, but one of the rules of the house is no romances between roommates. Well you may guess what happens, but there are some bumps along the way. A great escape in the car and a pleasant listen!

LOVED IT

This was a wonderful book. 🙂 The friendship between Jess and Alex was wonderful to watch develop. If you like a slow burn story, you will enjoy this book.

Such a good book!!

I really enjoyed this book. I love a good old Rom/Com or Chic/lit. Which ever you prefer to call them.
Especially if they are British.
While all along you know what is going to happen, the ride there is so much fun. Witty and clever. So good. I will absolutely be looking for more from this author!!

The narrators are perfect! I highly recommend this book.

BORING

This was terrible. Returning it because there was no plot. Worst 10 hours I've ever listened to.

Nice easy listen

The story was pretty easy to listen to, the characters are charming, and it's a nice read when you want something light. I wasn't on the edge of my seat so it took me some time to listen to it but great to listen to while doing chores or running errands.
