Description

What if your roommate is your soul mate? A joyful, quirky romantic comedy, Beth O'Leary's The Flatshare is a feel-good audiobook 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.

    An awesome, somehow believable love story. I truly enjoyed it from beginning to end and was saddened to say goodbye to Leon and Tiffany. Searching for more books related to their story. The background to Mo and Gertrude. What happened with the brother? Rachel? Even the mother and the man in the apartment upstairs! MORE please ??

    Witty, engaging, unique, and wonderfully written. New favorite for sure.

    I really enjoyed this book. It was well written with a great plot!
  • (3/5)
    Cute premise about Leon and Tiffy sharing a flat without actually seeing each other. I liked all the post-its left for each other and would have loved more of those. I felt without the interaction of Justin and Richie, it would have been a very boring story, but those two sidelines added to the story. However, I could also see that if those weren't focused on, then we may have got more characterful from Tiffy and Leon. Overall, I liked the story and the unusual way the two met.

    Cute story, but very predictable! Awesome audio book to listen to though, the reading was spectacular!

    A lovely story that was perfect for taking my mind off other things. I appreciate authors who can bring both heart and humor to life in their stories. I doubt it's part of her plan, but if Ms. O'Leary wrote a follow-up I'd definitely love to read it.
