Guillory,New York Times Bestselling AuthorThe 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 okay.so this isn t quite like any CL book that I ve picked up insert hands up emoji here I ve come to expect either extremely sweet touching story or something with humor at it s finest The Honey Don t List was a huge disappointment for me and is missing the special CL touch I love 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 Carey accompany the Tripps on their upcoming tour They re supposed to keep everything running smoothly along with trying to keep the Tripp s marriage from crumbling in the spotlight To tell you the truth the Tripp s were an absolute nightmare Their relationship was dysfunctional Now, the romance I felt this was lacking completely in this novel I found myself not rooting for James and Carey because there was zero buildup or hardly any chemistry with them IT was like CL randomly put in a scene with James and Carey beside all the drama surrounding the Tripps and their rich money rich problems business I felt like The Honey Don t List was all over the place I m not even sure what genre to call this There was police interviews throughout the novel that reminded me of a mystery thriller aspect and was expecting someone to die Yeah I m sad to say but this is the first book that I haven t really enjoyed by this dynamic duo I STIll am a huge fan of this talented duo and will read anything by them I appreciate their willingness to write, write, and write.3 stars for this one I m sad about this three stars believe me Huge thank you to Gallery Scout Press and Netgalley for the arc in exchange for an honest review.Publication date 3 24 20Published to GR 1 10 20 Oh yesssss I got one of my favorite romance duo s books and celebrating with happy dance I made a change and forced my mother in law and husband dance for me this time which was pathetic experience They don t know what the meaning of rhythm is but well, I got a little disappointed from my read This is definitely not what I was invested for.FACTS ABOUT THE BOOK You want to send friend requests to those beautiful characters and wear BFF bracelets Lately I read Twice in a Blue Moon and I think so far that was the worst book of the duo I couldn t believe that was the work of this incredible couple Thankfully this book is not a big disappointment like that one because we have likable hero and heroine and their back stories are perfectly developed It s impossible not to feel for Carey, a small town girl, started to work for couple when she was only 16, they slowly replace the place of her family They became partly her mother and father, uncle and aunt, close friends etc So she formed an emotional bound with them She has her own insecurities, secrets and she needs this job so bad because of her personal reasons but after 10 years, the relationship balances changed between her and the couple They turned into spoiled kids meet dictatorial narcissistic maniacs and she is trapped with the couple who hate each other passionately And James nerd hottie engineer of your dreams is also trapped in this job he wasn t even hired for engineering skills, they wanted him to babysit Rusty flirty, adventurous, childish man who needs to be controlled 24 7 because the previous company he worked for got involved into a scandal so he didn t have too much job choices He just dived into this one and made the mistake of his life So many resemblances with Netflix s Set it up movie At Set it up two corporate executive assistants suffered from their exploiter, workaholic, selfish bosses never ending demands and they decide matchmaking them to get their lives back In this story, those selfish assholes are already married and two young assistants are stuck with their childish, illogical demands, doing their best to make them not choke each other for the sake of their work I think if Jen Aniston and Brad Pitt would stay married, they could turn into real versions of Rusty and Melissa Their character development matched so good with them Romance parts are failed for me because they were haphazard, sudden They never attracted each other but after spending only few days, they were smitten and I couldn t process how they fell in love and of course something James did I m not gonna spill the beans wasn t so forgivable for me We wasted so much time about their work environments and this asshole couple s non stop spoiled brat acting When we finish the first half of the book, we barely see the attraction of James and Carey.OVERALL I gave 3.25 stars so it is solid 3 stars read for me The resemblances of the Netflix movie I m sorry to say but movie was better rom com, at least asshole bosses are likable Oh, please We re talking about Lucy Liu and charming Taye Diggs , lack of hot chemistry and emotional parts shaped my decision about this quick read As a humorous fiction, this book worked for me with its satisfyingly fair ending but romance parts failed for me I love this duo so so so so much If I have a time, I still want to reread some of their works including Josh and Hazel s Guide to Not Dating but this is not as good as their previous works and I expected and Special thanks to NetGalley and Galley Books to share one of my favorite duo s book s ARC COPY in exchange my honest review. The Middle is Good The Honey Don t List is a romance about two personal assistants who find love while trying to keep their bosses marriage from imploding Carey has been working for Melissa Melly and Rusty Tripp since she was 16 Now Carey is 26 years old and works as Tripp s assistant Carey has watched the Tripp s rise to fame for their home improvement ideas The couple has their own HGTV shows, written best selling books, and have a new show about to launch on Netflix The only thing is their perfect marriage has turned into one giant sham Carey takes care of all the work behind the scenes, including helping Melly and Rusty keep up the pretense of having the perfect marriage When James joins the staff as an engineer, he finds that his job is looking after Rusty than doing the work he desires Carey and James relationship is prickly, but when the two accompany the Tripp s on a book signing tour, the two find themselves becoming allies and then something Will their newly developing relationship survive the trip or will the demands of the Tripp s ruin their relationship before it even gets off the ground I enjoyed The Honey Don t List, but I didn t love it It s a light and fluffy easy read, but the focus on The Tripp s and rushed romance between Carey and James annoyed me The beginning was a little grueling, as it focuses mostly on the Tripp s The ending was rushed and it didn t feel like Carey and James relationship ever had a chance to properly develop They spend two weeks together, fall in love, and then after a brief blip, it s HEA I loved the middle part of the book when Carey and James begin their romantic relationship, but there just wasn t enough time spent on them to make me root for them in the end The Honey Don t List is a little different than previous CL novels, which was nice, but it s also missing the spark seen in their other books It s not full of snark or wit like in Josh and Hazel s Guide to Not Dating, nor is it filled with an intensity that is shown in Love and Other Words I liked Carey s character a lot and Jame s character is decent, but he is underdeveloped Overall, I wish there had been time spent on James and Carey s budding relationship vs the awful people they work for While not a favorite, it served its purpose as an enjoyable escape readI received an ARC of this book from NetGalley and the publisher in exchange for an honest review. Part of the reason I had a difficult time connecting with this novel isn t because it is poorly written or flawed, but because my expectations were in a completely different place than the direction that this book chose to take This clearly isn t the fault of the authors, simply a missed connection on my side Like many other readers, I m a bonafide fan of the classic Christina Lauren rom com, and feel that no one can deliver a belly busting laugh quite like this lovable duo That said, I think the team is starting to take their books in of a women s contemporary fiction direction, with lighter romance and a serious tone I applaud them for staying true to what they want to write, and while this new style isn t my particular go to, I hope that readers who thoroughly enjoy the genre will find these books and devour them heartily If you enjoy a read that is lighter on the romance, but still features a love story worth cheering for, please give this one a try for yourselfMany thanks to the publisher for providing my review copy.
