The Honey- Don't List by Christina Lauren


From the Publisher: "Carey Douglas has worked for home remodeling and design gurus Melissa and Rusty Tripp for nearly a decade. A country girl at heart, Carey started in their first store at sixteen, and—more than anyone would suspect—has helped them build an empire. With a new show and a book about to launch, the Tripps are on the verge of superstardom. There’s only one problem: America’s favorite couple can’t stand each other.
James McCann, MIT graduate and engineering genius, was originally hired as a structural engineer, but the job isn’t all he thought it’d be. The last straw? Both he and Carey must go on book tour with the Tripps and keep the wheels from falling off the proverbial bus..."


My thoughts: I’ve been a fan of the Christina Lauren duo’s writing for many years and looked forward to reading their latest joint venture. It did not disappoint.

Carey is the assistant to Melissa, part of the celebrity home decorating couple who has risen to fame over the decade that Carey has worked for them. The job is not easy, particularly since Melissa’s fame has gone to her head. But the job is important to Carey for its health benefits - something she very much needs. James is an engineer who lost his previous job due to scandal. When he is hired to work with Rusty, the other member of the famous couple, he soon sees that his job isn’t what he felt it would be. He also sees how badly Carey is being treated. Carey and James begin working together to try and control the couple from publicity disaster, and develop a relationship along the way.

I enjoyed this book, and the moments of humour found in the authors’ work. Their writing style is always easy to read with great flow and character development. It simply is a joy to read. The book is perfect for those that love humour and romance.

Thanks to Netgalley and Simon & Schuster Canada for the ARC of this book in exchange for the honest review provided here.

My rating: ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️/5.
