The Honey Don't List, Christina Lauren

From the New York Times bestselling author behind the “joyful, warm, touching” (Jasmine Guillory, New York Times bestselling 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 sixteen, 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.

Que saudade eu estava dos personagens fofos da dupla Christina Lauren. Carey e James tem muita química juntos e formam um casal maravilhoso com bastante entrosamento. Eles acabam se aproximando graças a seus complicados patrões, o casal famoso Melissa e Rusty.

Carey trabalha para eles há muito tempo e não consegue mais ter sua própria vida de volta. Tendo perdido seus sonhos e identidade, ela vive para satisfazer Melissa que não a valoriza na mesma medida. 

Com a tensão cada vez mais crecente entre o casal por causa de um Book tour e um programa de Tv, Carey encontra o apoio que precisa em James que tem a mesma tarefa que ela de cuidar para que o casal famoso não se mate antes do início da próxima temporada do programa.

Amei demais carey e me vi na pele dela várias vezes, incrível como eu consegui me identificar tanto com um personagem, mas juro que esperei uma atitude mais forte da parte dela com relação a Melissa que a oprimiu por muitos anos.

O livro alterna o pov dos protagonistas com depoimentos na delegacia de polícia e fofocas nas mídias sociais.

OMG! How I missed the cute characters of Christina Lauren! 

Carey and James have a lot of chemistry together and make a wonderful couple with a lot of interaction. They end up getting closer thanks to their complicated bosses, the famous couple Melissa and Rusty.

Carey has worked for them for a long time and can no longer get her own life back. Having lost her dreams and identity, she lives to satisfy Melissa who doesn't value her to the same extent.

With the growing tension between the couple over a Book tour and a TV show, Carey finds the support she needs in James who has the same task as her: make the famous couple doesn't kill themselves before the start of the next season of the show.

I loved Carey too much and found myself in her shoes several times, incredible how I managed to identify myself so much with a character, but I swear I expected a stronger attitude on her part at the end towards Melissa that oppressed her for many years.

The book alternates the protagonists' pov, with testimonies at the police station and gossip on social media.

I loved it!
