Handle With Care (Shacking Up #5) by Helena Hunting [arc review]
Helena Hunting never ceases to amaze me. Handle With Care was yet another fabulous book by this fabulous writer!
HE WANTS TO LOSE CONTROL.
Between his parents’ messed up marriage and his narcissistic younger brother, Lincoln Moorehead has spent the majority of his life avoiding his family. After the death of his father, Lincoln finds himself in the middle of the drama. To top it all off, he’s been named CEO of Moorehead Media, much to his brother’s chagrin. But Lincoln’s bad attitude softens when he meets the no-nonsense, gorgeous woman who has been given the task of transforming him from the gruff, wilderness guy to a suave businessman
SHE’S TRYING TO HOLD IT TOGETHER.
Wren Sterling has been working double time to keep the indiscretions at Moorehead Media at bay, so when she’s presented with a new contract, with new responsibilities and additional incentives, she agrees. Working with the reclusive oldest son of a ridiculously entitled family is worth the hassle if it means she’s that much closer to pursuing her own dreams. What Wren doesn’t expect is to find herself attracted to him, or for it to be mutual. And she certainly doesn’t expect to fall for Lincoln. But when a shocking new Moorehead scandal comes to light, she’s forced to choose between her own family and the broody, cynical CEO.
The Review: 5 Stars
I think the blurb for this one already tells you all you need to know about the story. Lincoln is pushed into a corner: stay and help the company or leave into his brother's hands and let the family company slowly die.
Wren's job has always been to keep Lincoln's brother's activities somewhat hidden from the media and to control him to best of her abilities. Now it is to make sure Lincoln look like he belongs.
Lincoln was not the kind of man Wren expected. He is kind, loyal, hardworking... the exact opposite of the brother she has to deal with on a daily basis. And although Lincoln never wanted to stay in the big city, Wren makes him consider it. She is all he didn't know he needed or wanted.
Those two were perfect for each other. Their romance felt easy, meant to be. They had struggles, his family is not easy, but there was never any doubt in my mind that they would conquer it all. Fabulous story!
