Lease On Love
by Falon Ballard (Goodreads Author) 4.18 · Rating details · 244 ratings · 183 reviewsBeach Read meets The Flatshare in this warmly funny and delightfully sharp debut rom-com about a down-on-her-luck young woman who turns an innocent mix-up between a dating app and a roommate app into a new chance at love.
After getting passed over for an overdue—and much needed—promotion, Sadie Green is in desperate need of three things: a stiff drink, a new place to live, and a one-night-stand. When one drink turns into one too many, Sadie mixes up a long-ignored dating app for a roommate-finding app and finds herself on the doorstep of Jack Thomas’s gorgeous Brooklyn brownstone. Too bad she’s more attracted to his impressive real estate than she is to the man himself.
Jack, still grieving the unexpected death of his parents, has learned to find comfort in video games and movie marathons instead of friends. So while he doesn’t know just what to make of the vivaciously verbose Sadie, he’s willing to offer her his spare bedroom while she gets back on her feet. And with the rent unbeatably low, Sadie can finally pursue her floristry side hustle full-time. The two are polar opposites, but as Sadie’s presence begins to turn the brownstone into a home, they both start to realize they may have just made the deal of a lifetime.
I absolutely adored Lease on Love by Falon Ballard. It was a true diamond in the rough. It had The Flatshare by Beth O’ Leary vibes which I was totally here for.
I loved how the roommate situation totally happened by accident. I loved the friendships between everybody and how welcoming everybody was of Jack. I had sort of guessed he had a secret that he was keeping from everybody though I am not sharing what it is.
Lease on Love is definitely a five star rating and it already is my second favorite book of the year so far. There wasn’t anything I didn’t like about the book except that it ended.
Thank you Netgalley and publishers for allowing me the chance to read and review. My thoughts and opinions are my own.
A/N: Sorry this was posted twice. I took it down right away first time because I was attempting to schedule it.
