SHACKING UP by Helena Hunting
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.

It all started with germinis (yes I had to look up the Latin cause I am fancy!!!)
Ruby is at her friends engagement party, a cough in the face ensures she gets sick and et voila, a hilariously fluffed up audition. Goodbye rent money, food money and just money in general.
Ruby needs money quick, and a place to live. So why not pet sit? A ferret and a tarantula? And the owner of the pets? The germ spreader!
What ensues is probably one of the most hilarious books I have read, I mean, come on….
‘That man could revive a corpse with his hotness.’
‘On a scale of one to smokin’, he’s on fire.’
‘I may actually start a new religion. The Church of Bane Cock.’
This was a slow burner that made me want to shout at my kindle in frustration (the sexual variety!) and proves that this author is totally amazing as usual.
