The Christmas Cadeau- K.D. Elizabeth
What’s the hardest thing I’ve ever done? Proposing to my girlfriend. And I haven’t even done it yet. I can nail a boardroom presentation, no problem. But proposing to the woman I love is a high-stakes, emotionally-charged situation. You better believe I’m not going to do anything to mess this up.
Maybe it’s the Québecois in my French Canadian self, but I want Laure to have a perfect proposal. And that means proposing in front of her family during their famous Christmas party.
But I’m an introvert.
Laying my soul bare in front of a room full of people? Essentially my worst nightmare.
I would have proposed already, but Laure loves the grand gesture. She loves her family, so she’ll definitely want her loved ones in attendance. I have to wait.
But my girlfriend isn’t stupid. She knows something’s up.
And if Laure asks me yet again about my growing jitters, I’m not sure I can keep my secret any longer...
I met my soulmate in the bathroom. A men’s bathroom. One overly spicy lunch an hour before an important meeting quite literally changed my life forever.
Were there any available stalls in the women’s restroom? No. So yeah, I ducked into the men’s. No one’s ever in there. I'd be in and out before anyone could notice.
Except someone walked in.
And, oh, he was so gorgeous.
Four months later we moved in together. Two years later I can’t imagine living without him. He’s the love of my life. So why are we breaking up?
Maxime has grown so silent and distant. We’ve stopped having sex. We barely talk. Whenever I ask what’s wrong, I just get a bunch of half-baked excuses. I know he wants to end it.
But if Max breaks up with me before Christmas, will I be able to hold it together for my family’s party?
Short and sweet! I wanted to read more about them as a couple. Short books always keep me wanting for more. The way they met was hilarious, I would definitely be embarrassed if I met someone like that.
I really liked how Maxime was the introvert and not Laure because in most of the books they portray the girl as the introvert. I got to see a different view and I absolutely loved it. Max definitely LOVES Laure, this man is gold.
I received this arc in exchange for my honest review.
