What if your roommate is your soul mate? A joyful, quirky romantic comedy, Beth O'Leary'sThe Flatshareis a feel-good novel about finding love in the most unexpected of ways. Tiffy and Leon share an apartment. Tiffy and Leon have never met. After a bad breakup, Tiffy Moore needs a place to live. Fast. And cheap. But the apartments in her budget have her wondering if astonishingly colored mold on the walls counts as art. Desperation makes her open minded, so she answers an ad for a flatshare. Leon, a night shift worker, will take the apartment during the day, and Tiffy can have it nights and weekends. He'll only ever be there when she's at the office. In fact, they'll never even have to meet. Tiffy and Leon start writing each other notes - first about what day is garbage day, and politely establishing what leftovers are up for grabs, and the evergreen question of whether the toilet seat should stay up or down. Even though they are opposites, they soon become friends. And then maybe more. But falling in love with your roommate is probably a terrible idea...especially if you've never met.… (més)

A fantastic read that's not overly trope-y! ( )

‌This is my favorite adult romance read so far. I always get so bored with adult romance as opposed to YA romance just for a general lack of warmth in the former. But with this book I think I now understand why.

(General thematic spoilers ahead, no plot spoilers)
The main characters in adult romance books are already set in their ways (not conclusive statement cause I've only read 2 of them before this one tbh), the plot mostly just involves how the romance blooms. There's no individual character development but rather development as a couple. Contrast this with YA romance where the leads usually discover themselves, in the process of discovering each other.

The Flatshare is that, but with adult characters. They feel realistic, because they each have their own (workable) issues, like every single adult I know irl. Moreover, love is not treated as the thing that will heal you, but rather as one of the tools you can use in the journey, which you have to make mostly alone. Several supporting characters also had arcs of their own, making them seem more life-like and not just written to push the two leads to each other.

Four stars because there are still some cringey over-the-top scenes. I guess that can't be helped when reading a romance book, but one can hope. x

P.S. Anyone looking for a flatmate hmu ( )

Read a 2nd time! This was a fun book to read. The romance and the plot is simple and cute. I liked main characters and how they interacted, however all this "flatsharing" idea is kinda weird and a little unrealistic! BUT it was still a fun read.

In almost half of the book, nothing has happened. I don't like the main characters and don't understand their interactions. Unfortunately not for me... ( )

The book follows the story of Tiffy and Leon, who due to their different work schedules are able to share a bed without ever seeing each other. We get to know the characters and see their friendship flourish through their communication via post-it as well as thorough their POV chapters.

It was an entertaining and quick read, and I ended up enjoying it more than expected. The book also addresses deeper themes such as domestic violence, showing other type of abuse besides physical violence, which I consider crucial to educate about what it is normal and should not be accepted in relationships.

Tiffy has to find a new and cheap place to live as her ex-boyfriend wants her out of his apartment. Leon works nights as a hospice nurse, needs money, and comes up with a unique idea for a flatshare. The other person can live there during the day and weekends (Leon spends them with his girlfriend) and he'll sleep there during the day when the new roommate is presumably at work. It's perfect for Tiffy, and thus starts a very strange relationship.
The two of them don't meet for a long time, but communicate through post-it notes and texts. Tiffy is a free spirit, still trying to get over her breakup, while Leon is kind but somewhat conservative, not liking change. He has a lot to deal with but over time gets used to Tiffy and her lava lamp, etc.
It's a unique premise, and I'll be honest; I wasn't sure I was going to like it. However, this is just a terrific story, so well done and very romantic. Tiffy and Leon are great together, warts and all, and I loved both their character arcs.
This is necessarily a slow-burn romance and just delightful. I've been mostly a miss with the contemporary romances I've read lately, but this book is a wonderful read. I highly recommend it. ( )
