The Flatshare by Beth O’Leary

Romance/Contemporary, 336 pages, published in 2019

After a breakup, Tiffy needs a place to live, so she agrees to share a flat with Leon, a hospice nurse. The thing is, the flat only has one bed, but Leon works at night so they agree that Tiffy gets the flat at night and Leon gets it during the day. They have never met.

Spoiler Free Review:


I was a little hesitant about this book, but then two of my friends loved it, so I gave it a shot and I ADORED this book! It is so soft and charming and I loved every second of it.

There are alternating chapters from Tiffy and Leon’s points of view. At first, I found Leon’s a little hard to get used to because he has a unique voice, but once I got used to it, I was charmed. I love dual perspective books like this!

What I love a lot about this book is that both Tiffy and Leon are going through big life troubles in this book. Tiffy has just gotten out of a relationship with a man who emotionally abused her, and she has to deal with her trauma from that, as well as the fact that this man keeps showing up in her life. Leon’s brother unjustly got sent to jail for armed robbery, so Leon is doing whatever he can, including working the night shift and having a stranger live in his flat, to make enough money to hire a lawyer for an appeal. Not only did this give such a good look into who Tiffy and Leon are when faced with adversity, but it also showed how they helped each other through these difficult times.

Another aspect I loved about this was that Tiffy and Leon get to know each other by leaving notes around the flat. The notes were absolutely adorable! Leon had such a cool exterior, but he really was a big softie and I love him!

I also loved all the small things in their lives, like the neighbor with mysterious banana boxes and the bricklayer guy that Leon said he wanted to marry. There were just so many details that made this book even better.

I can’t wait to reread this book, I loved it that much. There is nothing I didn’t like about this book! I highly recommend it!
