The Honey Don't List, Christina Lauren

Story Blurb

Carey Duncan 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.

Unfortunately, neither of them is in any position to quit. Carey needs health insurance, and James has been promised the role of a lifetime if he can just keep the couple on track for a few more weeks. While road-tripping with the Tripps up the West Coast, Carey and James vow to work together to keep their bosses’ secrets hidden, and their own jobs secure. But if they stop playing along—and start playing for keeps—they may have the chance to build something beautiful together…

My Thoughts/Opinion

The dynamic duo of Christina Lauren is fantastic at witty banter and off-the-wall plots, and this story is no exception. I loved the backstory of both main characters, and their chemistry was exceptional. I especially appreciated how James handled Carey's medical condition. Very sweet. My only issue with the story was that the main conflict between the two could have been easily resolved and the resolution, when it did happen, felt a bit like an afterthought. But either way, I was happy their got their HEA. Overall a cute, fun read.
