The Flatshare by Beth O’Leary: #bookreview


My Two Cents….

I started off reading this book and was quite frankly bored because I wasn’t connecting with the characters and felt it was a typical RomCom plot I had figured out from the beginning.

WOW! What a difference! The narrators were superb and the characters came alive. The audio also eliminated the weird formatting of Leon’s chapters.

The humor was hit or miss for me, but the depth of the story and the issues it covered that went deeper than an flat-mate to lovers story made it an overall cute, engaging book.


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 me
