My Review :: Handle with Care by Helena Hunting


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.


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 push my drink toward him, hoping he doesn’t send me packing like he did the other women who approached him earlier.

He narrows his eyes at my glass, suspicious, maybe. “What is that?”

“Cranberry and soda.”

“No booze?”

“No booze. Go ahead. You’ll thank me in the morning.”

He picks up the glass and pauses when it’s an inch from his mouth. His eyes crinkle, telling me he’s smiling under that beard. “Does that mean Imma wake up with you beside me?”

I cock a brow. “Are you propositioning me?”

“Shit, sorry.” He chugs the contents of my glass. “I was joking. Besides, I’m so wasted, I can barely remember my name. Pretty sure I’d be useless in bed tonight.”

Handle With Care (Shacking Up, #5)

Handle With Care by Helena Hunting
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Although is the fifth of a series it can be read as a standalone. Since it was my first of this series I’m glad I don’t have to know much back story.


Wren Starling has been hired by Moorehead Media to handle repercussions of scandals associated with Fredrick’s younger son.

Old Fredrick passes away and Lincoln, his older son, comes back for the funeral and he’s asked to help with the company for a few months.

Lincoln has no interest in living in the city, only a few months and he’s going back to his own projects. Will it be?

So now Wren’s job as a PR includes getting both brothers out of trouble. Plus getting a better relation with her own mother.

Armstrong the younger selfish sex addict son will make you wonder about how Lincoln is so different. Would love to read more about Armstrong though.

Maybe mother Gwendolyn Moorhead should answer our question. Not a very good person, although I could learn why she is this way behind her story.

Wren who knows how to stand up for herself, little by little does win Lincoln’s heart. Lincoln after learning how Wren ticks, they are good for each other and feel good together 🙂

Not trying to spoil so, very easy to read book, with a little comedy and romance fun, excellent for the summer.
