Blurb (as on Goodreads):
Tiffy Moore and Leon Twomey each have a problem and need a quick fix.
Tiffy’s been dumped by her cheating boyfriend and urgently needs a new flat. But earning minimum wage at a quirky publishing house means that her choices are limited in London.
Leon, a palliative care nurse, is more concerned with other people’s welfare than his own. Along with working night shifts looking after the terminally ill, his sole focus is on raising money to fight his brother’s unfair imprisonment.
Leon has a flat that he only uses 9 to 5. Tiffy works 9 to 5 and needs a place to sleep. The solution to their problems? To share a bed of course…
As Leon and Tiffy’s unusual arrangement becomes a reality, they start to connect through Post-It notes left for each other around the flat.
Can true love blossom even in the unlikeliest of situations?
Can true love blossom even if you never see one another?
Or does true love blossom when you are least expecting it?
A good romance always makes my knees go weak and fills my stomach with butterflies. And let me scream this out loud, THIS BOOK IS THE REAL DEAL.
Leon and Tiffy share a flat and a bed but have never met. They talk via post its/sticky notes. That’s how they get to know each other and that’s how they feel that even with fewer words between them, they are extremely comfortable with each other.
There are a lot of reasons this book has become my favorite read of 2019.
- This is not just a love story. Its a story celebrating friendships, sharing each other’s grief and being the best version of oneself.
- Leon and Tiffy are absolute goals. They are polar opposites and the writing style supports it very strongly. Leon is adorable at times and I might have giggled a lot throughout the book. Tiffy is a darling with her use of more words than necessary in a conversation and her ability to bring out the best in people.
- The story also talks about a subtle, but a common form of abuse in a relationship (don’t worry, there’s nothing violent about it, or I would have been the first one to abandon the book)
- The writing is bliss. It is entertaining and hilarious, but it also talks about feelings and emotions in a way that the reader can relate. This book feels real in all possible ways and that is probably, the most beautiful aspect about it.
One of the main reasons I enjoyed this book so much is because of the story and the mindblowing narration. Tiffy and Leon are characters taken from real life, who have basic, everyday problems and handle it in the most normal manner. A wonderful romance, that made me love all these characters and pray for a happily ever after whenever anything went wrong.
