A little slow to start and did not love the ending; read in one sitting though ( )

The Honey Don’t List was published a little over two weeks ago and I can’t stop thinking about it. Usually that’s a good thing. Unfortunately that wasn’t the case for this one. After really being disappointed in Twice in a Blue Moon, I had high hopes that this book would turn it all around. Nope.

I long for the days of old Christina Lauren. Think Sweet Filthy Boy era CL. In Honey Don’t, our main characters are Carey and James. They work for America’s sweetheart designing duo as assistants and are forced to go on a book tour with their employers. Did I mention their employers hate each other? Rusty is an alcoholic serial cheater and Mellie is just the biggest bully and I wanted to throw my Kindle every time she was on page.

So now we have forced proximity, opposites attract falling in love while their employers’ marriage implodes. Oh and there’s a disability sub-plot that gets thrown in there as well. Then James screws over Carey while knowing how awful Mellie is and she just takes it. This was the problem in Blue Moon as well.

I am so tired of women just rolling over and taking whatever bullshit the male love interest does and just explains it away. It’s not what I want in a romance novel. Give me the female main character who calls him on his BS and walks away. I’d rather be alone than be with someone who screws me over to save themselves. It’s not attractive and if Christina Lauren’s books keep up this trend, I’ll be done and that makes me 100% sad as they used to be a favorite and I looked forward to each book.

My thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for an advance copy of this book. ( )

Carey has worked for Melissa and Rusty Tripp since she was 16. During that time the couple has gone from running a home design and furniture store in Wyoming to becoming America's favourite home redesign couple. As Melissa and Rusty prepare to go on a promotional tour for their new book on marriage, Carey and Rusty's new assistant James get pulled into coming along to help keep a secret no one wants getting out, the supposedly happily married couple are anything but. While Carey and James try to keep their bosses in line, they also discover that there may just be a spark worth pursuing between the two of them.

Another solid contemporary romance from Christina Lauren. I love how the co-authors create these characters who feel real, who have believable issues, and while the final conflict between the two leads is due to miscommunication (as it almost always is) - it's not one of those scenarios where you want to shout, "Just talk to each other!" at the book. Recommended for fans of contemporary romance. ( )

I was first introduced to the Christina Lauren writing duo when I devoured their 2018 novel Love and Other Words. It was one of those books that will stay with me always and also left the bar very high as far as contemporary fiction novels go.

While I have certainly enjoyed many of their novels since Love and Other Words, none have really affected me the same way. They definitely have found a formula that works since then, I just don't know if it works for me.

The Honey-Don't List had all the elements of a romantic comedy but lacked depth and chemistry with the characters. I struggled to engage with the plotline overall and found many parts of it cringe-worthy and sometimes uncomfortable to read. It just felt over the top and didn't work for me as the reader. I still have high hopes for their next release but I am also wondering if maybe their more recent writing is just not for me.

Thank you to NetGalley and Gallery Books for an advanced copy. All opinions are my own. ( )

More on Chill and read

“The Honey-Don’t List” is a contemporary slow burn romance about two young colleagues that find each other and love while at the same time they try to maintain peace between their employers.

Melissa (Melly) and Rusty Tripp is a happily married couple. They have started as a small local office with beautiful decoration proposals and own made furniture. They have grown as a company and they have become very famous all over the country. They even got a Netflix show on renovation. Melissa is doing all the design and decoration and Tripp is building all the furniture and the two of them are very successful. And since they have been happily married for so many years, they even wrote a book on how to have a happy married life.

Carey has been working with the Tripps since she was 16. Ten years later, she is still will them, she hasn’t studied or went to college but she has learned so many things working with the Tripps. She has been with them all along, going from the small local store owners to the famous couple they now are. She is Melly’s assistant which means that she is taking care of everything business wide but also personal wide. She is the one that always has to keep the balance in Melly’s and Rasty’s marriage.

James has just recently joined the company as an engineer. As it turns out, his work is mostly that of Rusty’s assistant instead of an engineer. He doesn’t like this whole situation. He needs to be working as an engineer to add to his resume. His previous working experience has ended abruptly and he is looking for a more normal way of working. Unfortunately, what he get’s is a trip with the Tripps!

Carey and James get to accompany the Tripps on their book tour. All four of them on a tour bus for the next few weeks. Their job is to keep Melly and Tripp from killing each other and damaging the company’s image to the public. But as the weeks go by, their job becomes more and more difficult and they have no way out. James is promised the role he always wanted and Carey need health insurance, so they both have to stick with the Tripps.

The story unfolds bit by bit and the relationship between Carey and James goes from colleagues to friends to something more. The time the spent together in the tour bus allows them to learn more about each other and to bond. The start to trust each other and open up until they share more and more personal information. But it really takes time to get to that kind of bonding.

In the first part of the book it’s all about the Tripps. They cannot stand each other and they take advantage of the people working for them. I really didn’t like Rusty, who is a big cheater and doesn’t care about anything else than himself. And I certainly don’t like Melissa. She is such a calculating person that would easily blackmail an innocent girl like Carey, the person who knows all their secrets and who is one of their bigger secret, just to get her own way.

I wasn’t overwhelmed by the romance either. It felt a little flat for me to be honest. Okay, James has a beautiful body and he is handsome, so I can tell why Carey fells for him. I didn’t see how this worked on James side for Carey though. And then, after a few days on the past, he is in love with her. This was supposed to be a slow burn romance!

I cannot really see the hype behind this book. It’s an easy read, but not something extraordinary per se. ( )
