Shacking Up 

Shacking Up by Helena Hunting 


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.


5 out of 5 stars

This was so freaking entertaining and had the best sexual innuendos, I can't tell you how many times I laughed. It was just so fun and had a fantastic build. I loved it!


I loved Bancroft and Ruby and how they met. It was so priceless! Then how everything unfolds after with Ruby, it was like a series of unfortunate events. Them meeting again was great and I loved how sweet and genuine Bancroft was in wanting to help her. I thought this had the best build. I loved them really getting to know each other in this very interesting situation. They had great chemistry and I loved their banter. So fun and flirty and hello sexual innuendos (I highlighted the heck out of my Kindle because there were some awesome one-liners throughout the story). That good natured ribbing and sparing between the two was fantastic.They just has this amazing connection that had me smiling big time.


The writing was so great. The storyline was awesome. I loved the characters and adored the fact that this is told from dual POV’s. I really loved Ruby and her determination to do things on her own. I just liked how strong she was, a total spitfire. I also loved that she was just herself, putting it all out there, with no filter some times. It made her really endearing to me. She was just spunky and fun and full of life. And Bancroft. Oh my. So sweet. So sexy. And what a mouth (in a dirty talking way that made me melt). And the build - I know I said it already - was perfect. The story was like foreplay leading up to that combustible moment when they connect. And it was aaawsooome! There was a bit of drama mixed in and at just the right time, loved the bit of awkward tension that was in there too. It just had so many great elements mixed in and I loved it all.


So this gets five big ol’ stars from me because it was everything I wanted and more. It was just so high on the scale in entertainment value. I was definitely cracking up for Shacking Up. A must read for sure!
