Publisher's Summary

The New York Times best-selling author of Shacking Up and I Flipping Love You, Helena Hunting, mixes humor and heart in this scandal-filled romantic comedy, Handle With Care.  

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.

Great read

I loved the characters old and new. I really liked the way the two main characters communicated. Refreshing! I had a smile on my face listening to this one. Perfect narrators brought the characters to life. A great read!

Great story, great narration

I'm a big Helena Hunting fan, and Handle With Care is a great addition to the Shacking Up series.

Story review: Grumpy Lincoln has a lot of baggage with his dysfunctional family (that created his brother, Armstrong, the villain in the Shacking Up series that everyone loves to hate). His grumpiness is like his superpower. Good thing for him Wren is a fixer, and she's got more than enough determination to handle his growling every day.
Handle With Care is well-written, witty, funny, full of heart and heat. It's a fun read with strong lead characters and well-developed side characters. If you are looking for a great rom com, you need to pick up this book.

Narration review: Andi Arndt and Jacob Morgan always deliver great performances as far as I'm concerned. I am always pleased with their delivery. They have great voices, rich tones and subtleties in inflection, and they delivery performances that convey emotion rather than sound flat. Jacob Morgan was especially a great choice for grumpy Linc, and his voice shifted to a different timbre as Linc lost his grumpy and found his happy.

Definitely a new favorite!

I love Lincoln & Wren’s story so much. There is so much to these two that they need to learn about themselves past and present. I love their banter and friendship and the slow burn which turns scorching hot!!!! Jacob Morgan is my favorite and does another amazing job! Andi gives Wren all the spark & feels. Loved it!

Audible gold!

You cannot go wrong with Andi Arndt and Jacob Morgan, especially with Helena Hunting. I have enjoyed all the books in this series! While the series is centered around a few affluent families, the characters are very complex and nothing alike. Each book is very different from the last one. You cannot assume anything based on the prior, other than the story will be good, you will fall in love with the characters and with them falling in love with each other, and you will enjoy some seriously hot scenes when they come together. Andi and Jacob are spot-on-awesome, as they always are. They are some of my absolute favorite narrators, and on my auto-buy list for sure.

I definitely recommend this book. It's not all sunshine and roses, but it will not tear you apart with angst and suspense. Just a good love story with characters you actually like to love. <3

Better with every book

Helena creates such a vivid world that you fall into the lives of these characters. With each book in this series I love it even more, and the narrators do a phenomenal job. A must read/listen.

Perfection!

This is definitely one of my favorites of the year! This book is SO good! I absolutely fell in love with Lincoln and Wren! The storyline and characters are awesome and you will want to kill Lincoln’s family but that’s what makes a good story right? 😊 the narration is perfect perfect perfect!

Best book yet!

I say yet, because I know more books are coming and I am always surprised how Helena comes up with fresh new stories, and characters that I would love to hang out and have dinner with...or just get to know better!
Xoxo to Helena for sharing her talent with the world!!

Enjoyed every single minute

I purchased the audiobook and loved it so much! It is narrated by two of my favorites, Andi Arndt and Jacob Morgan. They did a fantastic job! Wren and Lincoln's romance was so swoony, and fun and flirty. G-mom was a hoot! This drama-free romance was perfection and I enjoyed every single minute.

Not worth a credit

I can't believe I wasted a credit on this book. I'm not even 3 hours in and I think I'm going to stop here...maybe I'm being a little bit harsh in my review but I honestly can't like either of the main characters. In the description she was described as a tough, no nonsense PR guru capable of dealing with any disaster. I think the author went way too far in trying to portray that and instead she comes across as a creepy domineering know it all: not only is she supposedly in charge of Lincoln's public image and public engagements, she's also managing his schedule, meetings and barges in on his private time whenever she feels like...sorry but no employee would ever have that kind of authority over any CEO regardless of her position and frankly that just makes him look like a complete door mat. Not only that but her uninvited intrusions into his apartment and bedroom and all that manhandling without his permision make her look like a complete creep...she just can't keep her hands to herself and behave professionally. Honestly if the male character behaved like that instead, most female reviewers here would say he's a weirdo sexually harassing his employee...I mean seriously, touching his back side under the guise of checking his trousers fit? I'm sorry but no, that's just poor writing and insulting to every professional woman. And the male character is no better, he's supposed to be a rebel, with a better moral fiber than most of his family: instead he comes across as weak, immature and completely led around by his penis. I can't believe this book has such good reviews, I would return it if I could.
