Plot- 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.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…
“I want to make her life better by being the best thing in it.”
Well !! I am very new to Christina Lauren’s books . I recently read UnHoneymooners and I had immensely loved it and wanted to give this book a chance . The Honey Don’t List is a romance about two personal assistants who find love while trying to keep their bosses marriage from imploding. Enter the personal assistants! Carey Douglas has been with team Melly and Rusty since they were a humble local storefront. The only job she has ever had! James McCann is an engineer by training but due to a scandal with his previous employer, this is the only job he could get.That’s gotta’ hurt! A title of Engineer, but at the end of the day…Rustys’ errand boy. Together, James and Carey have their hands full and must work together to keep their employers in line long enough to complete the tour. A delightful, quick rom-com that I devoured so quickly I was shocked when reached the end! This may have lacked some of the previous biting, snarkiness, but was sweet, engaging and back to the clever humor that we’ve grown to love from this pair of writers. Joy! Even though I did not enjoy certain elements of the book but still I saw a character development of Carey . That is one of the key aspects of the books . A cheesy Netflix movie/dramatic soap opera turned into a book.
