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.

Liezel’s Thoughts:

I was completely hooked from the moment I read Ruby and Bancroft’s scorching chance encounter. You will too once you see just how Helena Hunting depicts the remarkable sexual chemistry between these two.

Shacking Up is about a  professionally trained performer named Ruby Scott who is struggling to make ends meet. Money was never an issue for her up until her very own father cut her off. About to become homeless, she and her best friend Amie come up with this elaborate plan to find short term housing.

Bancroft is a retired soccer player who is learning the ropes in the family hotel business. Having to travel overseas for a long period of time he is in a bind too and Ruby is the perfect person to solve his problems.

Their arrangement was supposed to be temporary but as it comes to an end both gravitate towards something more. At first, it was difficult to see how these two would fit but as the story progressed I realized that they had so much more in common that I originally thought.

I couldn’t have asked for a better pairing between these two – in or out of the bedroom. Helena Hunting never fails to entertain with her fun and playful stories! Shacking Up had me laughing out loud one minute and swooning the next.

Don’t hesitate… one-click this book and fall in love with this great couple.
