Ruby is a bit of a spitfire and has the well-known Hunting Heroine sass that matches Bane's sarcasm and makes for some entertaining scenes. Not to mention these two seem to find themselves in sexually tense situation more often than not.
Of course they've got to blur the line between business and pleasure to find out if that tension is worth cutting. Bane doesn't want to overstep Ruby's bounds but he can't resist. Ruby knew that the stranger that kissed her and started this whole debacle would be memorable but she didn't plan on life-altering.
So excited to be back in the Hunting world and am so hoping for more in this steamy new series. Plus...rugby players...i mean they're just the European version of sexy hockey players right?!
Shacking Up is Helena Hunting’s newest romcom venture outside of her beloved and much adored Pucked universe. (Beloved and adored by me, at any rate!) If you’re a fan of that series like I am, you’ll be happy to know that this book will not disappoint, not even a little bit. Filled with her trademark humor, wit, and banter, and of course sexiness, Shacking Up is the hilarious and touching story of Ruby and Bancroft. And when I say there’s a new hero to love, I am not kidding. Bancroft, or Bane as he’s come to be known, will knock you off your feet. And I dare say you’ll fall in love with Ruby as well, before you flip to the last page.
After a steamy, but slightly awkward, first encounter, Bane and Ruby find themselves relying on each other for help. While they are both part of the “upper crust”, Ruby’s hit a bit of a rough patch in her life and is struggling. After losing out on a job, and losing her apartment, Ruby’s in a bit of a pickle. Unwilling to crawl back to her father, like he expects, she’s determined to make it on her own. With a little help from her best friend, all her troubles seem to disappear, at least for awhile, in the form of guilt-ridden Bane. With a job offer and a place to live, Bane seems to be the answer to all her prayers.
This is the point where I’m just going to start gushing over how much I adored this book! Ruby and Bane are so fun, so sweet, so filled with sexual tension that I thought I might combust from it. Bane is that perfect combination of understated alpha and adorable sweetheart...he’s just an all around good guy. He’s so caring and darling, with a touch of dominance that will seriously have you swooning.
"Hasn’t anyone told you it’s not polite to ogle?” His gaze lifts to mine and he leans in close, voice dropping to a whisper as if he’s about to tell me a secret. "I’m not always polite.”
Ruby is strong and feisty, with a quirkiness that keeps Bane on his toes. Even though these two, on paper, would seem to be cut from the same cloth- monied upbringings, part of the same social class, they are so completely different you wouldn’t expect them to work...but they fit together like the 2 most perfect puzzle pieces.
I loved that Bane and Ruby developed a friendship at first, after that one unexpected kiss, as it led to some serious chemistry building between the two that was really quite delicious- the anticipation was palpable and I could not wait for the payoff! Every word, every page of Shacking Up was so delightful to read. Ruby and Bane are totally charming and absolutely endearing- they've moved up to the top spot of my favorite Hunting couple, right up there with Randy and his luscious Lily.

I need to know what happens with Ruby's best friend Amalie and her fiancé. I hope Helen's next book is about them.
