I needed a palate cleanser after my last read, so I opted for a rom com and picked up Lease on Love, by Falon Ballard. Good gravy, I’m SO glad I did!
In Lease on Love, Sadie has recently been fired from her job and needs a new place to live. After accidentally accepting what she thought was a “date” on a roommate finding app, Sadie finds herself with a new home (gorgeous brownstone!) and roommate, Jack. While Sadie and Jack and two very different people, they find themselves forming a great friendship….and eventually romance 🙂
If you enjoy a predictable roommate to lovers trope with lots of f bombs and tons of humor, I think you’ll love this one. I’ve seen a lot of criticism written about the main characters, Sadie and Jack, but I personally LOVED them. Yes..Sadie is selfish and brash…but the way she was written made her character so interesting & fun to read! And while Jack might have been a little one-dimensional, I personally thought he was endearing. And together?!?! Well, ALLLLLL the chemistry!!!
I found myself laughing out loud through the entire story and loved the banter and dialogue between all the characters. Sure…it was a bit sophomoric and immature at times, but (IMO) very realistic! I love when a story (especially the dialogue) feels real. The romance was definitely a slow burn, but once the fire was lit things got pretty spicy.
I love a feel-good, probably-would-never-happen-but-would-be-dreamy-if-it-did, kind of story and Lease on Love fit the bill and then some. A multi-layered, quick, and enjoyable read that I’d recommend to anyone who loves your entertainment to be served with a side of romance. Goodness, this one was a winner!
