Publisher's Summary

Tiffy and Leon share a flat
Tiffy and Leon share a bed
Tiffy 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 rule book out the window....

 This audiobook contains an exclusive interview with author Beth O'Leary and narrator Carrie Hope Fletcher.

Didn't want it to end!

Loved it! Not an extremely intricate plot but nevertheless is still an intriguing story. Would make a great chick flick/drama!!! Am a bit bias on the narration performance as I love Carrie Hope Fletcher to death, her voice is so calming and I easily envisioned her as Tiffy, however I had never listened to an audible with Kwaku before but will definitely be keeping an eye out for more as his voice is so calming and relaxing too. Great Book! Would definitely listen again!!

Enjoyable

Loved this story. It a nice story and even though you knew from the start what was going to happen. I couldn't wait to see what happen.

Loved it!

I was expecting a light, funny, heartwarming read (which it is), but I wasn't expecting the book to tackle some very big issues (you'll need to read to find out - no spoilers here!). The characters are charming and lovable with a cute and original story, topped with excellent narration, this is well worth a read.

Lovely book!

Lovely, pleasant story - light, well-paced story, read by narrators that supported (rather than intruded into) the story.

Funny and life affirming

I don’t usually read contemporary romance comedies but as this was recommended to me I gave it a go. It is fabulous. Humorous but natural dialogue and monologue with relationships forming the tension, but with serious issues giving a solid backbone. Well worth a listen as the narrators are top rate.

Loved it!!!

I needed a lovely story to brighten my life. This was it. Absolutely perfect. Beautiful narration, just perfect as Tiffy and Leon. I usually send my read books to the cloud, but this is staying. I will listen again and again. Can't wait to hear another from Beth.

Really great!

I really enjoyed this book. It is such a nice concept for a book with the way the characters don't meet for the first half. The narrators were wonderful too, which is quite rare. I looked forward to listening to it whenever I could!

Unique, feel good love story!

This book is amazing! I pre-order it after reading about it and it did not disappoint. I loved the premise of the story and seeing it develop was amazing. It’s engaging, with a lot of depth and still has that feel good love story in it despite the dark themes at times.
I would recommend this book to anyone looking for a interesting London love story which has character, humour and the grit of London living.
Will definitely listen to this audiobook again!

Loved it.

Lots of sexual tension, but sweet moments and tackling real issues. Unrealistic nurses's shift pattern though!
