Tiffy and Leon share a flatTiffy and Leon share a bedTiffy and Leon have never met…

Tiffy Moore needs a cheap flat, and fast. Leon Twomey works nights and needs cash. Their friends think they’re crazy, but it’s the perfect solution: Leon occupies the one-bed flat while Tiffy’s at work in the day, and she has the run of the place the rest of the time.

But with obsessive ex-boyfriends, demanding clients at work, wrongly imprisoned brothers and, of course, the fact that they still haven’t met yet, they’re about to discover that if you want the perfect home you need to throw the rulebook out the window…


This was such an adorable romance book with some heavy AF topics throughout. There is issues with a past relationship that was emotionally abusive and there is also some heavy family drama as well. I found this book super relatable, and it definitely made me reevaluate a relationship I used to be in and realize that it was also emotionally abusive.

I really am starting to love this genre and it’s really nice having characters that are closer to my age than most of the books I read which are YA fantasy. (Don’t get me wrong I LOVE YA.) But I really wish we could get fantasy books with 23 year olds.

Anyways back to the book, I loved Tiffy (hated her name though) her dress, and personality are so unique that I really had moments where I felt like I was reading a out a real person, it was very easy to fall into this book and forget everything around me for a while.



Verdict: I really enjoyed this book and would definitely be interested in checking out other works by this author. I gave it 4/5 stars.
