The Gift by Karli Perrin

20131112-070246 AM.jpg 

Please note that this is a short story, not a full length novel. It is a standalone and is intended to be a quick, fun and flirty read.

Genre: New Adult Contemporary Romance

What they say: 

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…

What I say:

I was sent this short story by the author Karli Perrin in exchange for a fair and honest review. 

It's a wonderful short story of how Imogen met Blake, they say never judge a book by its cover but the cover is perfect and fits perfectly with how I imagined Imogen and Blake to look.

It was a nice easy read around Christmas, I also like the Mad Friday reference and not sure if this is a Northern thing as we have Mad Friday in the town where I live and can defiantly say they are very drunken affairs having been out in a few Mad Friday's, I appreciate how Imogen is feeling the morning after. 

This is a story of how it feels to meet and fall in love.  The story was fast paced enough to keep you reading with plenty going on, right to the end to where it keeps you wondering what happens with Imogen and Blake.  

I have Karli's other book on my kindle which I am now looking forward to reading. 

5 out of 5 stars.
