Book Review: Lease on Love {Falon Ballard}

I had seen so many book bloggers love this one and I couldn’t wait to get my hands on a copy! I was very excited to start reading and my expectations based on the reviews that I was seeing were incredibly high.

First impression: How CUTE is this cover??

Goodreads Synopsis of Lease on Love {Falon Ballard}:

After getting passed over for an overdue—and much needed—promotion, Sadie Green is in desperate need of three things: a stiff drink, a new place to live, and a one-night-stand. When one drink turns into one too many, Sadie mixes up a long-ignored dating app for a roommate-finding app and finds herself on the doorstep of Jack Thomas’s gorgeous Brooklyn brownstone. Too bad she’s more attracted to his impressive real estate than she is to the man himself.

Jack, still grieving the unexpected death of his parents, has learned to find comfort in video games and movie marathons instead of friends. So while he doesn’t know just what to make of the vivaciously verbose Sadie, he’s willing to offer her his spare bedroom while she gets back on her feet. And with the rent unbeatably low, Sadie can finally pursue her floristry side hustle full-time. The two are polar opposites, but as Sadie’s presence begins to turn the brownstone into a home, they both start to realize they may have just made the deal of a lifetime.

My Review of Lease on Love {Falon Ballard}:

I liked this book…I truly did! The story was lovely and I LOVED the author’s writing style. The banter between the friends was AMAZING and I loved reading so much of this story through text messages. Super creative and the style of this entire book was downright adorable. Did I LOVE this book like so many other people do? I did not…

This book takes “slow burn” to a WHOLE new level. This was the slowest burn that has ever been written in the history of slow burns. Frustratingly so. HOWEVER….and this is a gigantic HOWEVER…once that slow burn led to actual sex scenes? WORTH. THE. WAIT.

I loved all of the characters except for…the main character! I would have liked this book so much more had I even slightly enjoyed the main character. Sadie was SO selfish and took advantage of her friends (and Jack) repeatedly throughout the book. It was frustrating to read. How many times can people bring her coffee? Or dinner? Or stop their own lives to drop everything and work endless hours for her for FREE? Combine that with her annoying attitude, non witty jokes, and overall persona and I just didn’t see what Jack saw in her.

However, even coupled with the things I didn’t love about this one, I do think that overall this is a great book. It would be a PERFECT beach read!

Bottom Line:

I definitely do recommend this one although it did have it’s flaws…
