'This was a BEAUTIFUL love story. If you enjoyed The Flatshare, you will love Lease on Love!' reader review'I don't think I have ever been in love with a book more than I am in love with Lease on Love' reader reviewA fun, heart-warming light heated read.

Highly enjoyable, and I can't wait to see what the talented Falon comes up with next' reader reviewBeach Read meets The Flatshare in this warmly funny and delightfully sharp rom-com about a down-on-her-luck young woman who turns an innocent mix-up between a dating app and a roommate app into a new chance at love. ............................................................................. ... She wasn't looking for love until it landed on her doorstep. Sadie's looking for a fresh start. After missing out on an overdue promotion, she drunkenly re-opens a long-ignored dating app and, two days later, finds herself on a date with Jack.

Except it isn't a date. Realizing that she mistakenly matched with Jack on a roommate-finding app, Sadie prepares to make a hasty exit, only to finally notice the gorgeous Brooklyn brownstone that Jack is advertising . . . and the unbelievably cheap rent. Introverted Jack doesn't know what to make of the talkative whirlwind in front of him.

But he offers Sadie his spare bedroom while she gets back on her feet, and Sadie, recognizing that her dreams of starting her own florist business might now finally be possible, accepts. As Sadie's presence starts to turn the brownstone into a real home, and Jack learns to come out of his shell, they both begin to wonder if this accidental roommate arrangement is the best deal they ever made. ............................................................................. ... Warm praise for Lease on Love:'A hopeful, heartwarming debut.

With a relatable disaster of a protagonist and an adorably nerdy hero, this opposites-attract, roommates-to-lovers romance is a true delight' Rachel Lynn Solomon, author of The Ex Talk'Lease on Love warmly and wittily underscores that none of us are perfect, but we are all worthy, we are all enough: we all deserve to be loved, not just by others, but by ourselves too' Sarah Hogle, author of Twice Shy and You Deserve Each Other'Lease on Love was a delight on every level.
