The Honey Don’t List by Christina Lauren
Carey Douglas has been working for home remodeling and design gurus since the age of 16. Of course at the age of 16 Carey was simply a clerk doing everything in their start-up home design store. Back then the owners Melissa and Rusty Tripp let Carey do the window designing which drew the customers in and before you knew it the Tripps empire grew. Soon the television show was into its third season and they were ready to launch another book and an another New Show. The Tripps were on their way to superstardom except for one small bump in the road - the loving couple they portrayed was a fairy tale - the Tripps couldn’t send one another. And Carey on top of all her other duties, needed to help keep them from imploding in public.
James McCann, MIT graduate and engineering genius, was hired as a structural engineer, but the job wasn’t what he thought. James was regulated to assisting Rusty 1) to stay sober and 2) to help keep the squabbling pair out of the spotlight when their tempers got the best of them! Plus they kept all the engineering out of his hands!
Unfortunately, neither of Carey or James were in any kind of 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. As the miles rolled by on their bus tour promoting the Tripps newest book, James and Carey finally began to realize that neither has a dream job, and everything to lose - if the real secret behind the Tripps success were to be revealed.
What you do receive though are lots of laughs and a whole lot of sensualness and stolen moments which ultimately lead to revelations of true genius. However, on top of discovering the genius behind the Tripps empire also leads to uncovering a bit of betrayal that can blow up everyone's world.
Wonderful story and dynamite scenarios. An absolute sweetheart of a story I highly recommend.
