❤❤SHACKING UP by Helena Hunting Release Blitz + 4 star review ❤❤

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

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.

Well this one had some little characters I didn't expect, and they surely added a quirky little funny twist to this story. I mean where the little ferret likes to snuggle, I never would have expected it. but I love how okay she was with it, how much she just loved on the animals while he was gone. I loved how these two animals were the connection that ultimately brought these two closer together, as un-ordinary as they may have been.

not only the animals, but I love how the time apart made their connection even stronger. this books was a testament to the old adage​ distance makes the heart grow stronger. despite the distance it was like the more they chatted or talked, the more you could feel the pull between them.

I love how Helena writes such great love stories but always manages to add so much humor to them, with just the right balance of sexiness. I think what I liked most of all was that Ruby set out to show her dad, and herself, she could do this on her own. she could make it outside of his world, and make it on her own. and when he offered, when it came down to it, she couldn't give in. she was determined to do so, and she did it. she didn't give up. she didn't let herself become her mother. and she showed her dad how good she really was. how can you not love that.
