Tiffy’s been dumped by her cheating boyfriend and urgently needs a new flat. But earning minimum wage at a quirky publishing house means that her choices are limited in London.

Leon, a palliative care nurse, is more concerned with other people’s welfare than his own. Along with working night shifts looking after the terminally ill, his sole focus is on raising money to fight his brother’s unfair imprisonment.

Leon has a flat that he only uses 9 to 5. Tiffy works 9 to 5 and needs a place to sleep. The solution to their problems? To share a bed of course…

As Leon and Tiffy’s unusual arrangement becomes a reality, they start to connect through Post-It notes left for each other around the flat.

Can true love blossom even in the unlikeliest of situations?
Can true love blossom even if you never see one another?
Or does true love blossom when you are least expecting it?

My review

The Flatshare was my second five star read of the year, but it was the first adult romance book I read this year and it started the trend for me to continue on with other awesome romance books.

This type of romance is soooooooooooo much better than Fifty Shades of Gray.

I loved the pacing of the whole book and the fact that the point of views were told by Leon and Tiff. I loved Leon so much, I could just hug him even though that would be super awkward. I loved how awkward he was and bashful he was at times. And then other times he would just show how loyal he was to people.

I liked Tiff’s character too, especially when she started becoming friends with Leon’s brother just by talking to him on the phone.

The plot was also really unique. I liked the fact that they shared the same flat but they didn’t meet each other until we were well into the book. I thought everything was well developed.

I also liked all of the friendships between Tiff and her friends. Chick literature books actually has some of the best friends portrayal ever.

I would recommend this book to others and may even buy it sometime because this was a library ebook. It was just a fun, relaxing read.
