Book –The Flatshare by Beth O’Leary is one of my new favorite romance novels and an endearing love story! For fans of cutesy, sweet and awkward romances, this is the book for you! Tiffy is reeling from a bad breakup and has no where else to turn. She needs somewhere to stay, anywhere, cheap and fast! Against her best friends’ judgement, she responds to an ad to share a flat with a stranger she’s never met–a guy named Leon. With completely opposite work schedules, it seemed likely they’d never meet face to face. So, sharing the same bed would never be an issue, or so they think. Then a passive aggressive post it note on cleanliness soon develops into a budding friendship.
This is a unique love story with more twists and turns than I anticipated. Tiffy is a bright ball of energy, while Leon is more cold and distant. It’s a slow romance with plenty of awkward encounters and hilarity ensuing around every corner. I enjoyed learning about each of the main characters and past lives, woven throughout the story. Their hardships served to bring them closer together. A heartwarming story of opposites attract, Tiffy and Leon come together as friends and eventually something more.
