    Slow Build

    Shacking up is a slow build with much of the story being a lot of flirting and sexual innuendo via calls and texts. Bane and Ruby's conversations are witty and often quite funny, which keeps the story from lagging too much. Fortunately, once things do begin to really heat up, the story moves along at a faster pace and was an enjoyable read. Overall, the book is well-written and amusing, and the MCs are good together. The only drawback is that I feel like I would've enjoyed it more if the build-up had been a bit faster.

    The Church of Bane Cock

    This was the perfect lighthearted and hilarious book that I needed! I switched back and forth between the ebook and audiobook (yay for whispersync!) and enjoyed both immensely. I absolutely loved Bane and Ruby and couldn't get enough of their crazy innuendo and banter. This is the first full length book by Helena Hunting that I have read, but it certainly won't be my last! I was introduced to Ruby and Bane in her novella Getting Down, which is part of the Eye Candy anthology. I fell so in love with them, that I knew I had to find out how it all started in Shacking Up. I was laughing so hard while reading/listening to this book! Ruby's inner dialogue is especially hysterical! Everything from the unconventional meeting with Bane, to her adventures while following her dream (I was dying from her initial audition while she was sick!) was fresh and hilarious! I loved all the build up and will they/won't they between Bane and Ruby. Yes, they flirted and skirted the line between friendship and something more while he was away, but it only made their relationship feel more real and honest. It gave them the time to truly get to know each other and allowed the chemistry to get to explosive levels. And explode it did! Of course, the icing on the cake was the delicious narration of Bane by Jacob Morgan! I would have loved more Bane chapters just to hear more of his voice! I'm glad Hooking Up is releasing soon, because I can't wait to read Amie's story next!

    It was alright

    This is my first read by this author and it took me a bit to finish it. It took them forever to finally get together. I mean an accidental sick kiss and I say sick kiss because the hero Bancroft was sick while attending his cousin and her best friend's engagement party. He mistakes her for someone else while sick, tipsy and on cough meds and kisses her. Ruby ends up really sick the next morning and bombs her audition. After this point they do encounter each other again and Bane feels so bad that he asks her to pet sit for him while he is away for 5 weeks. During these 5 weeks there is so much flirtation and sexual innuendo between the two and that's it for a total of almost 5 weeks. Even when he gets back they are still awkward around each other. Finally after watching her perform at a burlesque show they get together around 3/4's of the book later. Then another misunderstanding occurs and she ends up leaving him. Eventually the misunderstanding is cleared up but it was just too much for me. I give it 3 stars for the funny banter and laugh out loud moments. The sex scenes were hot once they finally got around to it.

    ... one of the most unforgettable meetings ...

    Ms. Hunting has dreamed up one of the most hilarious and memorable meetings in romance history. Ruby and Bane's first kiss is uniquely irresistible. Shacking Up extends a good time to all. Senses remain on full alert throughout. Ranging from frustration, temptation, seduction, humor and heart, the possibilities are endless but the feelings are overwhelming. It's hard for a person to follow their dreams, when what should be the biggest supporters are on the sidelines judging. Bane and Ruby have experienced that first hand. Bane is trying to do what is expected of him. Ruby is willing to sacrifice her privileged life for her cherished dream. Will either find happiness with the choices?
