Publisher's Summary

From the New York Times best-selling author behind the “joyful, warm, touching” (Jasmine Guillory, New York Times best-selling author) The Unhoneymooners comes a delightfully charming love story about what happens when two assistants tasked with keeping a rocky relationship from explosion start to feel sparks of their own.

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 16, 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. 

From the “hilariously zany and heartfelt” (Booklist) Christina Lauren comes a romantic comedy that proves if it’s broke, you might as well fix it.

Another PG-13 wannabe Hollywood Rom-com

Look - I love Christina Lauren books. I look through Audible's coming soon list and add them to my wishlist months in advance...so far in fact that usually the book cover art hasn't been released.

This writing duo hooked me with their beautiful series. So much witty banter, such clever plot lines, and of course always some great steamy interludes.

With that said, I have to voice my disappointment with the books that have followed since the end of the wild series.

It began with Roomies. This is the book that is destined for the silver screen and I feel that since then the steamy scenes have been sanitized out of their books so that they fit this ideal of what a Hollywood rom-com should be.

I will continue to listen to Christina Lauren books because at the end of the day, this team tells a great story. The Honey-Don't List is no exception. I just wish they hadn't veered so far away from the books that made them successful.

As for the narration, both narrators were new to me and gave a solid 4 star performance. My only gripe was the slightly tin-y sound present in all of Jon's segments.

Under developed slow book

This was an incredibly slow book, where you’re hoping the build up will be worth it. Unfortunately, it led to no where. There wasn’t a connecting or interesting side story that kept this book going. Basically, it was a short story on rewind. I would think if you submitted this story to your professor in college you would receive a C- for lack of character development and a storyline that went no where. It was like ‘Groundhogs Day’, every chapter was the same.

2 stars for audiobook quality

I won’t rate the content yet since I couldn’t finish to the incongruent narration. I will comment on the audio, though. There are two narrators, a male and female, but they were recorded in two entirely different studios with inconsistent quality. While the female narration is done quite well in a sound-proof room, the male narration is not. There is a tin-like echo to his narration as if it was recorded in a tunnel or in a bare room with hardwood floors. The switch between the two narrations is quite jarring and unenjoyable. I stopped listening part-way into the first male POV chapter and will exchange for a better quality audiobook.

Loved every minute.

Remarkable story and narration. Each novel of Christina Lauren’s gets better and more complex. Yet delightful.
