The Bunk Up - Book Review


*Recommended for readers 18+ due to adult content 

Daisy Harlow discovers her long-term boyfriend isn’t contemplating a proposal but rather how to get his mistress out of the house before she gets home. As if things can’t get any worse, broken-hearted Daisy gets fired from her job at the Post Office. 
Stuck living with her best friend and tormented by three children under the age of five, Daisy needs a fresh start and she needs it fast. Enter her least favourite customer Mrs Haversham. Daisy finds herself offered a few weeks away in Mrs H’s country cottage in Norfolk. Time to recharge her batteries and think of her future. Thank goodness Mrs H’s son is married though, she can do without her matchmaking efforts. 
So who’s the dark haired hottie currently occupying a bedroom of the cottage? He says he’s Mrs H’s other son. One Daisy knows nothing about. 
It all leads to a Bunk-Up, a sharing of the cottage and each other. 
It’s not like either of them is looking for anything serious. Is it?

Daisy is having one hell of a week.  She's just lost her job at the Post Office and then came home to find her boyfriend of many years shagging another girl.  Great right?  Yeah, fantastic!  

The one woman who Daisy dislikes the most, offers her an option.  Get away for awhile, relax, think things thru, then come back and break some shit!  Off Daisy goes to a tiny cottage, to be alone, relax, and think of what lies ahead for her.  

It at the cottage that she meets Mrs. H's other lesser known son, Frazer.  Together they explore and come up with an agreement - bunk up.  Which in American slang means - Friends with Benefits.  Seems okay at first.  But neither wants to admit they want more. 

Daisy for her age, seemed rather immature and annoying at some points in the book.  Frazer, he was immature too.  They were like college kids who didn't have a clue.  She knew he'd hurt her, but she jumped in with both feet.  Frazer knew she'd fall for him, he didn't care, he wanted his knob waxed.  

I will say, there were funny parts, sad parts, and all around good story.  There is a part where I wanted to slap both of them for being dumb.  The host of characters in Beydon really help make this book magical and create a sense of community for Frazer and Daisy.  This is a great pool side read.
