What if your roommate is your soul mate? A joyful, quirky romantic comedy, Beth O'Leary'sThe Flatshareis 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.… (more)

Molto carino, simpatico e divertente, una lettura piacevole e distensiva con il giusto tocco di dolcezza e romanticismo che non guasta.
Tiffy deve lasciare la casa dove ha vissuto col suo ex fidanzato e trovare quanto prima una nuova abitazione. L’unica soluzione possibile per le sue finanze si rivela la condivisione dell’appartamento e dell’unico letto disponibile con Leon, un infermiere che lavora di notte.
È la convivenza perfetta, i due non si incontrano mai, Leon occupa la casa di giorno e Tiffy di notte, e il loro mezzo di comunicazione è costituito unicamente dai tanti bigliettini che si lasciano sul frigo.
Alcuni bei personaggi che mi fanno pensare che questo potrebbe essere il primo libro di una serie, ognuno ben caratterizzato a cominciare proprio da Leon che ho apprezzato moltissimo.

Tiffy Moore necesita un piso barato, y con urgencia. Leon Twomey trabaja de noche y anda escaso de dinero. Sus amigos piensan que están locos pero es la solución ideal: Leon usa la cama mientras Tiffy está en la oficina durante el día y ella dispone del apartamento el resto del tiempo. Y su modo de comunicarse mediante notas es divertido y parece funcionar de maravilla para resolver las vitales cuestiones de quién se ha acabado la mantequilla y si la tapa del váter debería estar subida o bajada.

Claro que si a eso se añaden exnovios obsesivos, clientes exigentes, hermanos encarcelados por error y, lo más importante, el hecho de que aún no se conocen, Tiffy y Leon están a punto de descubrir que lograr la convivencia perfecta no es fácil. Y que convertirse en amigos puede ser solo el principio...

I haven't had a book hangover in a while, but this book definitely has given me one. I was in the mood for a romance book, and honestly, I picked the best one. Tiffy and Leon were adorable, but I loved even more was that the author wrote a healthy relationship. It made me so happy. Their relationship in the book is everything I want in real life. But I recommend this book if you're looking for a feel good read. It definitely helped brighten my days. ( )

Beth O’Leary - The Flatshare: Other than the terrifying (potential trigger warning) ex, this was utterly delightful. #cursorybookreviews #cursoryreviews ( )

Super cute and sweet. I'd like to give it 3.5 stars because it's way better than an average 3 star book. But not quite a fantastic 4 star book if that makes sense. ( )
