Shacking Up by Helena Hunting 4 Stars!
Ruby Scott is months behind on rent and can’t seem to land a steady job. She has one chance to turn things around with a big audition. But instead of getting her big break, she gets sick as a dog and completely bombs it in the most humiliating fashion. All thanks to a mysterious, gorgeous guy who kissed—and then coughed on—her at a party the night before.
Luckily, her best friend might have found the perfect opportunity; a job staying at the lavish penthouse apartment of hotel magnate Bancroft Mills while he’s out of town, taking care of his exotic pets. But when the newly-evicted Ruby arrives to meet her new employer, it turns out Bane is the same guy who got her sick.
Seeing his role in Ruby’s dilemma, Bane offers her a permanent job as his live-in pet sitter until she can get back on her feet. Filled with hilariously awkward encounters and enough sexual tension to heat a New York City block, Shacking Up, from NYT and USA Today bestselling author Helena Hunting, is sure to keep you laughing and swooning all night long.
This romance made me smile.
It isn’t complicated but its fun. There are a lot of things that could have been more developed but it remains a feel good romance with dirty talk, banter and a couple that really likes each other.
I really like them too and the pets. Oh, I love the pets.
I don’t care for many of the side characters even the heroine’s best friends who is closed off to a good smack in the head for being in an icky relationship.
The heroine is charming and hero is a good guy if built on over the top sexy scale.
A great way to spend an afternoon.
I was given this book for my honest review. So there you have it!
