'You can never go wrong with Christina Lauren!' Paige Toon
From the New York Times bestselling author of The Unhoneymooners comes a laugh-out-loud love story about two assistants tasked with keeping their bosses' relationship on the rails, who start to feel sparks of their own . . .
For the last decade, Carey has poured her heart into working for the Tripps. Now, with a new show, a book about to launch and a brand built on their marriage, the couple are on the verge of superstardom. There's only one problem: they can't stand each other.
With disaster looming, the Tripps embark on their book tour and Carey is given the impossible task of keeping the quarrelling couple in line. Only this time she has a companion: James, engineering whiz, know-it-all and enticing new addition to the team.
While on the road, Carey and James vow to work together to keep their bosses' secrets hidden. But if they stop playing along - and start playing for keeps - they may actually have the chance to build something beautiful together . . .

Lauren (The Unhoneymooners) delivers a breezy, tongue-in-cheek rom-com featuring the beleaguered assistants to a pair of unhappily married reality-television stars. Carey Duncan has worked for Melissa and Russell Tripp since she was 16 and they were just starting out as the hosts of a home-improvement show. Ten long years later, Carey could likely have any design job she wanted, but loyalty to the Tripps (whom she sees as parental figures), fear of retribution, and the medical insurance that covers treatments for her muscle disease keep her in place. James McCann has only been Russell's assistant for a short time. An engineer by trade, James is ill-suited to managing the Tripps' meltdowns, but scandal drove him from his last job, and he'll take what he can get. Melissa and Russell's feuding gives rise to a series of ridiculous situations that endanger their brand, leading Carey and James to bond as they work together to keep America's favorite couple's fights under wraps. Playfully poking fun at the world of DIY TV, Lauren's romance is as insightful as it is irreverent. Readers will laugh out loud.
