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.
I was provided a review copy by St. Martin's Press; this did not influence my opinion of the book.
What a delightful addition to the Shacking Up Series!
After his father dies, Lincoln Moorehead’s grandmother talks him into becoming head of Moorehead Media. Lincoln has never wanted anything to do with his family (other than his grandmother) nor the family business. If it wasn’t for his grandmother’s asking, he would have gladly continued building homes and helping communities in developing countries.
Wren wants to move on from Moorehead media at the end of her contract and begin doing the charity work she has always dreamed. Only, Lincoln’s mother holds all the cards. She initially hired Wren to be Lincoln’s brother, Armstrong’s handler. Armstrong was a PR nightmare for the company and it was Wren’s job to do damage control. Now with Lincoln coming home, Lincoln’s mom insists that he needs help with not only his wardrobe but in learning how to behave like a proper businessman. If Wren agrees to overhaul his public image, Lincoln’s mother has agreed to give Wren a shining referral.
The only bright side to working the family business was having a handler. And Lincoln wants nothing more than for Wren to handle him.
“God, she pisses me off and makes me hot at the same time. I’ve never encountered a woman who I simultaneously want to screw and tell to screw off.”
These characters were great! They shared amazing chemistry and hilarious banter.
HANDLE WITH CARE was an entertaining, quick read, that left a huge grin on my face!
