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.
Shacking Up by Helena Hunting is the perfect book to begin the summer. This delightful and downright hilarious romance is guaranteed to have the readers laughing out loud.
Ruby Scott is turning her back on her socialite upbringing. Rather than buckling under and giving into to her father’s demands, she’s determined to make it on her own in New York City. As an aspiring actress, she knows it’s a hard road ahead of her. Jobs aren’t steady, parts are hard to come by, and there’s no guarantee the show will be a success. Ruby has accepted this and is highly motivated to pursue her dreams. She may still need financial help from her father but she’s putting forth earnest efforts to become independent. She’s about to audition for a big role and has a great feeling this is her big break. The big break she envisioned didn’t go quite as planned. One accidental misguided kiss with a hot guy at her best friend’s engagement party the night before has turned her into Linda Blair from the exorcist and literally left her homeless. Daddy dearest has cut her off at the worst possible time. What’s a girl to do? Look for a new career and live in the streets? When the opportunity arises to pet sit for five weeks arises, she knows this will buy her the time she needs to find a job and a new apartment. She’s always loved animals. This job is going to be a piece of cake.
What happens when the pet daddy is the evil hot guy who kissed her into resembling Linda Blair from the Exorcism? The hot guy with luscious lips and deadly germs that is begging for redemption with a fantastic penthouse apartment, an adorable ferret , a kind of cute tarantula, and a collection of take out menus. A hot guy with lips made for kissing and a body made to sin is icing on the cake. What’s a girl to do? Say yes to Shacking Up!
Shacking Up is not as easy as Ruby thought it was going to be. Bane Mills is more than a suit with luscious lips. He’s beyond the perfect roommate with adorable critters. He’s her big break!
