It was the weekend before Christmas
and the whole world was on countdown.
Except for me.
Last Christmas, I met a boy.
Last Christmas, we made a pact.
Christmas would never be the same.
Life would never be the same…
The Gift is another wonderful story from Karli Perrin. Although it was a brief story I didn’t feel I was shafted when it came to character development. The banter and rapport between Blake and Imogen is on point. I found myself laughing out loud on several occasions, especially the Santa and Mrs. Claus scene (you’ll have to read it to find out what I’m refering to). I actually don’t read many holiday stories, I don’t know why but they’ve never really been my style but The Gift was the perfect story to get me started!
Karli Perrin does a wonderful job creating character chemistry without the prototypical story-lines. Her writing style is refreshing and her characters seem to really come to life, Blake and Imogen being no exception. Additionally, despite its brevity The Gift is full of action and there is quite a climatic ending!
If you’re in the mood for a short, sweet, fun, and flirty holiday story The Gift will be a perfect addition to your December reading pile! (In fact, it’s really good for any time of the year but ’tis the season!) Plus, everyone should have a Blake under their tree…or mistletoe.
*I received an eCopy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
Karli Perrin is a 25 year old English Language & Linguistics graduate from Manchester, England. She has always been a big lover of books and is the author of the ‘April’ series.
She is a big believer of fate and is a sucker for a happy ending. She honestly believes that there is a reason why you are reading this right now (apart from the fact that you are awesome!)
Her ultimate goal in life is to live in a house made entirely out of books with her best friend, who also happens to be her fiancé.
…Hogwarts is plan B.
