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.

Book Review: 5 Stars


Shacking Up is the sexy and hilarious story of Ruby and Bancroft <3 

Ruby’s dream is to be on Broadway and she pursued her dream no matter whether her father supported her or not. Despite her talent, she’s had a rough time in her career and now she’s about to be homeless, but her best friend came to the rescue by getting her a pet-sitting job with her fiancé’s cousin, who happened to be the sexy stranger who gave her the most sensual kiss in the world the night before.

Bancroft is a former rugby player—drooling all over my kindle while reading, gimme now—who is now working in his family business. It was supposed to be a simple kinda job, which wouldn’t include to travel…much. But now he’s forced to leave his exotic pets in hands of a stranger to take care of them for a long month. But…. she wasn’t a stranger, not completely. They met the night before when he kissed her by mistake. But Oh. Boy. What a mistake!

I loved everything in this book. The pets, firstly. LOVE LOVE LOVE Francesca! I want a ferret!! OMG Super cute!!! I also loved how their relationship transformed from an employer-employee one to a friendship and then to something more, I loved how supportive they went to each other about their jobs… well kinda… there was a little drama about this subject, but it was great too, and of course I loved the ending. It was amazing.

Helena Hunting always writes the best books!! 🙂 She can create the best stories, best characters, best hilarious scenarios ever and I can’t get enough of it. <3

Shacking Up is a 100% recommended read for all the romantic comedy readers.


Enjoyed my first game with the Wild Knights on the weekend. Back in Ota to learn more Japanese and prepare for the next one. 📷:@hiroworld17
