*Many thanks to the publisher for providing my review copy.
On the one hand I loved the topic. I’m a big fan of remodeling shows, and I can spend hours on Pinterest going through interior design boards. And I definitely love the assistant co-worker trope. Usually it comes with forced proximity, which makes for fun times.
But I must admit, this book will be the one CL book that I didn’t connect with at all. I would also say, that if ...more
This book was really sweet, light and funny. The characters were so cute and hillarious that it was imposible not to fall in love in love with them or at least like them.
When I started this book, I thought that it was gonna similar to the movie called ‘set it up’ but the only thing that they have in common is that the main characters are assistant.
Overall, this a good book. I really enjoyed it and I can’t wait to read more books by these women ...more
I’ve read a ton of Christina Lauren books and my ratings have gone steadily down with each new release, however, this is my first official DNF. I just couldn’t do it. This one rubbed me the wrong way right from the beginning with how similar the plot was to Chip and Joanna Gaines and their home improvement show, Fixer Upper. In The Honey-Don’t List, they’re Rusty and Melissa, with their home improvement show and their perfect life… except it’s all a lie. I don’t know, for me, it felt ...more
This was a solid romance with a solid storyline and solid characters. That being said, I didn’t LOVE it. I am SO bummed out to be saying that and it’s another reason why I wanted to put this review off until later. The last few Christina Lauren books have not left me obsessed and it breaks my heart. I feel like their actual writing is so solid and still has me laughing and shivering with all the ~feels~ so often but there’s just something missing that I can’t quite put my finger on.

The book alternates between two first person narrators: Carey (female- 26) and James (studied to be an engineer).
The book has two interesting narrators. But much of the story is focused on another couple: Melissa/Melly and Rusty Tripp. They are the co-owners of a home decor store/brand Comb + ...more
The Honey Don't List is more of a contemporary romance than a romantic comedy, it has heart, ...more
What do you say about the dynamic duo that hasn’t already been said? Seriously what?
I loved The Honey Don’t-List. When I need a vehicle to dive out of my life and into another...CL is always the way. Their characters become real people to me. I loved that this time with THD-L...we were introduced to some truly unlikeable characters.
This book brings us a different format all together. The assistants of the most famous DIY reality tv couples ...more
This sounds kinda like a reverse Set It Up (not that I've watched the movie yet) so all here for it! (Also, I just love that Gallery Books bought three titles from the duo because auto approved on Edelweiss, eeee)
Carey (a long-term employee) and James (MIT graduate and engineering genius) are both working for Melissa and Rusty Tripp. They have been working hard to help the bosses launch a new relationship book and a TV show. Carey and James are overworked, tired and at the end of their rope. Just when Carey and James thought they have a little break once the bosses get on the road, they were told they needed to accompany them. Let the roller coaster trip begins … ...more
The Honey-Don’t List is quirky and compelling with an exceptional writing style. Starting in the present with a police interview alternating between the two narrators of the book, James and Carey, it moves on to past history that brought me to the present. James and Carey work for a ...more
Carey has worked for Melissa and Rusty Tripp for 10 years, frequently having her design and remodeling work go uncredited by her employer. James is a newly hire that is an engineer who is supposed to help ...more
This story is unique to the contemporary/romance genre and the world they've created is wonderful! The Chip and Joanna nods will make this book an easy recommendation for friends and a definite preorder!
I loved that this story was focused around the people, around their relationship with others and that the backbone wasn't just about the physical. It made you take a deeper look at the ...more
"I want to make her life better by being the best thing in it."
I’ve read every single adult romance release from Christina Lauren, and this is the first time I’ve disliked one since Beautiful Bastard (which is understandable since it was fanfiction and their first book). I probably won’t even be able to articulate why I didn’t enjoy this, but it’s fundamentally not a book meant for me.
Carey has worked for Melissa and Rusty Tripp for ten years, often having her design and ...more

So it now has a cover... I’m not the biggest fan BUT don’t judge a book by its cover.
7 October 2019
so this book does not have a cover currently. It has a release date actually, 24 March 2020. It also has an description which caught my attention. I really like Christina Lauren’s books. I REALLY liked The Honeymooners. That book was both cute and funny. I love Ethan.
This was a very cute meet cute story of co-worker to lovers along with a healthy amount of TV show drama and some light sex.
I wanted it to end in revenge or murder, but alas it's too cute for that.
