Book Review: The Flatshare by Beth O’Leary-3 Stars

When I saw everyone on bookstagram raving about this I decided to try it. I started it in July and finished it in December if that gives you an idea of how much I liked it or not…

The premise seems weird right off the bat but I’m a sucker for romances so I still plowed on. Tiffy needs a place to live, and Leon needs money, so he leases his flat to her.

Leon works nights as a hospice nurse and Tiffy works during the day, so neither should ever be in the apartment at the same time. They share the same bed, but at different times, and each on their side at night. They eventually start communicating with Post It notes left throughout the house before accidentally meeting in person.

The redeeming quality of this book was Leon’s brother, Richie’s story and ultimately Tiffy’s newfound strength and courage she comes to find in herself again. I was wholly invested in finding out how things work out for Richie, more so than I really cared about the romance between Tiffy and Leon. Besides Richie, there’s a few other side stories going on including one with one of Leon’s patients that I was interested in seeing how it played out.

I guess I’m more a fan of insta-love romances because this one took forever to really peak my interest which was unfortunate given how hyped up I noticed it was.
