If you can’t tell by now, rom-coms are my jam. They can be silly, over-the-top, happily ever after overload, sugary sweet, delicious, delectable…oh wait, I think I may be talking about dessert now ha!
Writing duo Christina Lauren’s new one The Honey-Don’t List did not disappoint. True to form, it included witty banter, page-turning character chemistry, and a leading man that you will want to be your book boyfriend. They really do know how to write a male lead.
Carey and James are assistant’s for each of the Tripp’s – TV’s favorite home & design couple Melissa and Rusty – think Flip or Flop Tarek and Christina El Moussa (we all know how that relationship turned out). They both need their jobs and cannot afford to quit, so when the job now includes them babysitting the “Can’t Stand Each Other” Tripp’s on their upcoming book tour…well let’s just say there will be a lot of flipping and flopping. Ha!
– Melissa is a real trip
– Rusty is flippant
– Carey needs a backbone: she has the power to have one and won’t let herself believe it
– James is charming AF: he sees Carey for what she is but can she?
Will Carey and James be able to keep Melissa and Rusty in line? What’s really in it for them to stick the job out?
Enjoy this cute little number. It’s a light read that can offer a nice distraction from shelter in place restrictions. Any of their books are pleasant diversions from the goings-on of the world:
