Ruby Scott is months behind on rent and can’t seem to land a steady job. She has one chance to turn things around with a big audition. But instead of getting her big break, she gets sick as a dog and completely bombs it in the most humiliating fashion. All thanks to a mysterious, gorgeous guy who kissed—and then coughed on—her at a party the night before.

Luckily, her best friend might have found the perfect opportunity; a job staying at the lavish penthouse apartment of hotel magnate Bancroft Mills while he’s out of town, taking care of his exotic pets. But when the newly-evicted Ruby arrives to meet her new employer, it turns out Bane is the same guy who got her sick.

Seeing his role in Ruby’s dilemma, Bane offers her a permanent job as his live-in pet sitter until she can get back on her feet. Filled with hilariously awkward encounters and enough sexual tension to heat a New York City block, Shacking Up, from NYT and USA Today bestselling author Helena Hunting, is sure to keep you laughing and swooning all night long.

Maria’s Review

➦Late to the party, can’t read them all and all that… So, in preparation for Hooking Up I have grabbed this book on audio and got this month’s healthy dose of Zach Webber. I can’t help it, I love his voice. 

➦No lengthy review here, just will say that it was a quick, sexy and funny read with a roommates trope. I loooove roommates trope and it will never get old. It was also rather slow burn – another thing I enjoy if done right. And it was, it really was. 

➦Oh, and ferrets. Gotta be a fan of them. And if you’re not you very well might be by the time you finish this book.
