What if your roommate is your soul mate? A joyful, quirky romantic comedy, Beth O'Leary's The Flatshare is a feel-good novel about finding love in the most unexpected of ways. Tiffy and Leon share an apartment. Tiffy and Leon have never met. After a bad breakup, Tiffy Moore needs a place to live. Fast. And cheap. But the apartments in her budget have her wondering if astonishingly colored mold on the walls counts as art. Desperation makes her open minded, so she answers an ad for a flatshare. Leon, a night shift worker, will take the apartment during the day, and Tiffy can have it nights and weekends. He'll only ever be there when she's at the office. In fact, they'll never even have to meet. Tiffy and Leon start writing each other notes - first about what day is garbage day, and politely establishing what leftovers are up for grabs, and the evergreen question of whether the toilet seat should stay up or down. Even though they are opposites, they soon become friends. And then maybe more. But falling in love with your roommate is probably a terrible idea...especially if you've never met.… (mais)

Tiffy has broken up with her boyfriend for the last time and is in desperate need of a cheap place to live in London. Leon is a night nurse in need of extra cash. And so Tiffy and Leon end up living together without ever meeting. Tiffy gets the flat from 6 p.m. to 9 a.m. on weekdays and the whole weekend. Leon lives there during the day. But even with never seeing each other, Leon and Tiffy begin to connect and find they have more than just their shared flat in common.

A really charming romance that doesn't shy away from heavier issues. Both Tiffy and Leon have serious things going on in their lives but their friendship and later romance is fantastically sweet. O'Leary does a great job of giving them distinct narrative voices in their alternating chapters and the novel has a bit of an epistolary flavour as Tiffy and Leon communicate largely through notes for the first chunk of the book. If you have not yet picked up this novel and you enjoy a good romance, add it to your want to read list. ( )

I really liked the premise of this book.

I liked the tone very much and the characters were entertaining. It feels very adaptable to the movies or tv.

I felt like towards the end I got frustrated with the characters. I don't like when plot is dragged out via easy to clear up misunderstandings. Other than that - it was fun. ( )

I love this book! I read from 10 pm to 2 am and then more as soon as I got up.

In some ways, it's a tropey rom-com. She works days, he works nights. She needs a new place after a breakup; he needs some extra income. So they start splitting his flat on a time basis -- they're never there at the same time, and in fact have not met face to face. They start communicating via notes and become closer over time. Other tropes come into play as well, including multiple instances of Only One Bed.

But there's also more going on. There are layers and echoes, there is some true to life personal and relationship psychology, there are struggles in their lives. It's not just fluff, is what I'm saying. There's depth, texture, and structure.

Also a happy ending.

Highly recommended.

But -- if you have issues from past relationships and might get triggered, do a web search for "the flatshare content warnings". I'm not going to go into more detail because I want to avoid spoilers -- there are things that only become clear over time that I think are done well and I don't want to undercut that. But on the other hand, there's stuff that I know would be upsetting for some people to read. ( )

Really enjoyed this light hearted feel good book. A great take on a rom com- Bridget Jones diary vibes ( )

{Stand-alone. Chicklit, romance} (2019)

When Tiffy's controlling, rich ex-boyfriend wants her to leave the flat he rarely uses or pay the rent, she has to look for another place that she can afford in Central London and the only decent offer is an ad from someone whom she may never meet as they work the nightshift and will be away on weekends.

Leon is a palliative care nurse at a hospice. His brother, Richie, is in jail for a crime he didn't commit and the only ways Leon can afford the fees for an appeal are to do nightshifts, which pay more, and sublet his flat for the times when he's not there.

We see a little bit behind the scenes at Tiffy's and Leon's jobs and the people they make friends with there. We also see a lot about the emotional abuse that her ex boyfriend put her through without her being aware of it at the time although her friends could see it.

Although they never meet (for the first few months), Tiffy and Leon build up a friendship through the notes and the food that they leave in the flat for each other so that when they do meet, they feel like they already know each other. Tiffy has a huge, bubbly personality whereas Leon is more thoughtful and quiet and it comes through in their notes, too.

The story is told in the present tense from a first person point of view and through their notes of both Tiffy and Leon in alternating chapters. Leon's chapters were written in a sort of note form which irked me a bit (I'm always going on at my kids to use their conjunctions and verbs properly) though I do see that O'Leary was trying to differentiate his chapters from Tiffy's and, for the most part, it worked.

Fun, feel-good and everyone gets their HEA. (I'm pretty sure that that's not a spoiler.) The bedroom scenes are hot but not heavy, as in they take you as far as the bedroom and leave the rest to your imagination.

3-3.5 stars ( )
