    Entertaining, but Not My Favorite

    This was an entertaining enemies to lovers and forced proximity romance. I enjoyed Carey, James, and the crazy shenanigans by the Tripps, but unfortunately, I didn't love it. It took a bit for me to feel invested in the story and characters, and by the time I really felt anything, the book was more than halfway over. Part of that is due to the way the book is formatted. The tweets, police transcripts/interviews, and book excerpts really took me out of the story at times as I tried to piece everything together. Those parts of the book ended up confusing me more than anything. The chemistry between James and Carey also left me wanting. I didn't feel much build up between them and that playful banter and ribbing was missing. Things seemed to change so abruptly between them that I was afraid I missed a chapter. I did love them together though and wish more of the book had been spent about their budding relationship, instead of the implosion of Melly and Rusty's marriage. I really liked how attentive and sweet James was. He seemed to really see Carey for who she was and I think that's why the miscommunication drama later on didn't work for me. The book wrapped up quickly, but I liked the steps that Carey took to really stand on her own. I also appreciated the care that Christina Lauren took in discussing and highlighting dystonia. It was refreshing to read about a heroine with this condition and also very informative. Overall, this was an entertaining story, but I didn't love it as much as I hoped. *I voluntarily read an advance review copy of this book*

    Like watching a behind the scenes HGTV show

    This is one of those books that wasn't really what I was expecting. In fact, I wasn't sure if I was going to like the direction this was taking, until the next thing I know, my nose is buried in my kindle cause the drama became very fascinating. What I wasn't expecting, was for this book to feel more about Melissa and Russel's drama, and less about Carey and James romance. Melissa and Russel were like a train wreck that you just can't stop watching and I gotta say, I was riveted to it all. While Carey and James didn't really feel like a romance until almost the end, the authors still had me swooning all over them when it was all said and done. So all in all, I enjoyed it. It may not have been what I thought it was going to be, but the writing was fantastic and this author duo really knows how to capture your attention.

    A Fun Read

    This is my first book by Christina Lauren and will not be my last. Thoroughly enjoyed this light rom-com, many laugh out moments but still on the serious side of marriage and the budding romance of Carey and James. Loved the dual point of view. If you love HG TV, this is the perfect read for you.

    Honey, DO read this book!

    I'm a huge fan of Christina Lauren and I was very excited to get my hands on this book. There's something about this duo that always keeps me coming back for more. This book put me through the gauntlet, emotionally. It definitely left me smiling and satisfied. I really enjoyed meeting Carey and James through this book. I loved the way they danced around each other, the banter that they had. I loved that Melissa and Rusty actually brought them closer together instead of pushing them apart. I believed in Carey and James; I liked them individually as well as a couple. Their behaviors just seemed so genuine. These two are in a unique situation and I really loved watching it unfold. I love the depth Christina Lauren's writing. When I read their books I literally fall into the story. The pacing of this book was great, the story really flowed for me. I enjoyed the supporting characters here-and I personally was amused to see my name used in a book (a first for me!). This is a book I can easily see being turned into a movie! I didn't want to put this book down, and actually read it in one sitting. I didn't want it to end, but I love the way that it did. It felt authentic. I loved this story, from start to finish, and would absolutely recommend it.

    Just ok . Didn't rock my book world.

    Content Rating: 18+ Genre: Contemporary Romance, Adult Published: March 24, 2020, by Gallery Books The Honey-Don't List hit one of my favorite topics; the home remodeling shows- I watch them all, that is when I am not reading. This book was cute, and somewhat entertaining but unfortunately not memorable. There was a little bit of falling in love and a lot of the falling out of love. For me, the balance was off. I wanted more of the falling in love between the two main characters. The Honey-Don't List is about two personal assistants, Carey and James, who are thrown together for the sole purpose of accomplishing the impossible. It's their job to prevent their bosses from a disastrous implosion of their marriage and, consequently, their business. Together with the help of Carey, they have built a successful home remodeling and design brand from the ground up. Melissa and Rusty Tripp were once head over heels in love. However, along the way, they have lost sight of themselves and their relationship. "There's only one problem: America's favorite couple can't stand each other.” Carey has had no life for the last ten years except for being Melissa Tripp's assistant. But Carey is so much more than Melissa's assistant. She has spent the last ten years being an integral asset, building the Tripp's home improvement brand, Comb + Honey, into a multimillion-dollar company. Their relationship started well; however, slowly over the ten years, Melissa changed and took advantage of Carey. I kept waiting and hoping that Carey would finally grow a backbone. After Melissa dismisses yet another one of her husband's assistant, she hires James the cute nerdy engineer who knows nothing about home remodeling or being a personal assistant. James needs this job and will do anything to keep it- even babysit Rusty. And possibly along the way, he may make one of the worse decisions of his life. "' You didn't tell me,' she says again, and the simplicity of that betrayal feels totally gutting.'" The romance part of this book was a bit typical, boy and girl meet, they don't particularly like each other, and then they do. Then they don't, and then, well, you can probably figure it out from there. I liked Carey and James and would have liked to see more romance between the two of them. While Carey's character was well developed, James' character fell a bit short for me. There was too much of the ridiculous narcissistic, selfish behavior from Melissa and Rusty and it dominated this book. These two were over the top. The Honey-Don't List is a well written cute read, but it just didn't rock my book world. I wanted a lot more of the sexy romantic elements that these two authors usually have in their books. It lacked in direction, trying to be too much, but in reality, not enough. *Please note the quotes in my review are subject to change once the book is published* **I kindly received this galley by way of NetGalley/publisher/author.
