The Honey-Don’t List by Christina Lauren

From the writing duo Christina Hobbs and Lauren Billings, Christina Lauren‘s latest romance The Honey-Don’t List is a romcom with a home and garden twist. The book follows Carey Douglas, assistant to America’s favorite remodeling and design super couple: Melissa and Rusty Tripp.

Carey has worked for the Tripps since she was sixteen years old. She’s seen them transform their first shop into an empire they’ve built brick by brick. With a new show and a book launch on the way, everyone expects the Tripps to be on cloud nine, but they’re actually at each other’s throats.

The only person Carey can commiserate with is James McCann, the Tripps’ structural engineer. James is an MIT graduate and engineering genius who is putting his hard-earned degree to use by helping Carey keep the Tripps from alerting the world to the dysfunction at the heart of their relationship.

If the pair can smoke and mirrors their way through making sure The Tripps look like a happy couple, Carey can keep her much needed health insurance and James can step into the role of a lifetime. All they have to do is keep the charade up for a few weeks as they travel up the West Coast for the book tour. But with an unhappy couple to corral anything could go wrong.

Some things, however, could go right. Maybe not for the Tripps, but Carey and James may find it’s not just their jobs they get to keep by the end of the trip; it could also be each other.

The Honey-Don’t List is available March 24 in print, audio, and e-format.
