Y'all. This book as riot. It was not at all what I thought it was going to be. I spent half the book thinking I had it all figured out and by the time we got to the end I was so completely wrong. I loved every page of it. I hope this duo never stops writing books.
This book felt like reading a book about a book being written about a behind the scenes show about an HGTV show. I know. That sounds hella confusing, but it isn't. It was the best thing ever and I loved it.
These ladies took 4 characters that you aren't sure how you feel about and give you their stories page by page until you get to the end and FINALLY get the entire picture.
Dive in. Make your guesses, and then sit back and watch the show unfold. Because this book is absolutely a show to watch. You forget you are reading while you read, and get completely lost in this world. I would love more from this world!
Carey Douglas has worked for home remodeling and design gurus Melissa and Rusty Tripp for nearly a decade. A country girl at heart, Carey started in their first store at sixteen, and—more than anyone would suspect—has helped them build an empire. With a new show and a book about to launch, the Tripps are on the verge of superstardom. There’s only one problem: America’s favorite couple can’t stand each other.
James McCann, MIT graduate and engineering genius, was originally hired as a structural engineer, but the job isn’t all he thought it’d be. The last straw? Both he and Carey must go on book tour with the Tripps and keep the wheels from falling off the proverbial bus.
Unfortunately, neither of them is in any position to quit. Carey needs health insurance, and James has been promised the role of a lifetime if he can just keep the couple on track for a few more weeks. While road-tripping with the Tripps up the West Coast, Carey and James vow to work together to keep their bosses’ secrets hidden, and their own jobs secure. But if they stop playing along—and start playing for keeps—they may have the chance to build something beautiful together…
