Handle With Care is the 5th book in the Shacking Up Series, yet it can be read and enjoyed as a stand-alone novel. Handle With Care is a sexy and humorous office place romance. Lincoln & Wren’s story took me by surprise in the best possible way and I found myself unable to put their story down…
When we first meet up with Lincoln and Wren, I for one couldn’t wait to read more. Their chemistry was instant and just oozed off of the pages. I had a feeling the dynamic between these two would be complicated and they did not disappoint. You see, when Lincoln’s father passes away, the last place Lincoln wants to be is in New York running his father’s company. As if that wasn’t enough to frustrate him, he finds out that he’s been assigned a handler; someone to clean up his image and get him CEO ready. Lincoln, however, was no way prepared for Wren. Wren takes her job very seriously. She’s bossy and doesn’t take anything from anyone. Not only is she smart, but beautiful too and completely off-limits….
Overall, I thought this book was a really fun read. It has a bit of a different vibe from the other books in this series and I found that to be totally refreshing. Handle With Care has the humor that we have come to know and love from this author, but it isn’t over the top. It’s well placed, and I feel like this story had a bit more of a serious vibe to it. It had a great office place romance vibe to it. I loved the tension and banter between Lincoln and Wren. They totally butted heads in the beginning, but that led to the most delicious passion. These two characters just clicked and left me begging for more. I couldn’t think of a better match for Lincoln than someone who could take what he dished out and boss him right back around.
Handle With Care is fun, sexy and smartly written. It had sexy good times, fun characters and an air of mystery about it. There was some angst and drama, but like I said, nothing over the top. And of course, I can’t forget the fun twists at the end.
Handle With Care is a terrific addition to the Shacking Up Series and I had a terrific time getting swept up in Lincoln & Wren’s story.
