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.
