Book Review: Handle With Care (Shacking Up #5) by Helena Hunting

Handle With Care was everything I could have wanted. Lincoln and Wren were awesome and I loved getting to know the man behind all that gruffiness. Fantastic story!

Release Date: August 27, 2019


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.

5 out of 5 stars

Loved this so much! Handle With Care was such a fantastic story filled with humor and love, heat, and so much emotion. It's one of those stories I couldn't put down because I was so in love with the characters and couldn't wait for them to get to their HEA. It was a fantastic ride!

Wren and Lincoln were awesome. From their very first meeting, I was all in. The antagonism between the two was so fun and there’s a great attraction happening. It was so entertaining, sexy and playful. I loved learning who they were and discovering their histories as the story evolved. I had so many questions about their secrets and all the drama and I loved finding out all the details and the build to get there. I also loved the bits of angst, their chemistry, and the serious sexual tension between the two. When that tension explodes, total hotness!

This was just exciting for me to read. I loved Wren and her tenacity and how she didn't put up with anything. I loved that she was tough and could really hold her own. Now Lincoln, he was this gruff guy with a serious chip on his shoulder and I felt so bad for him, I could feel that pain. He was in a tough situation but all those moments to get him to the other side were great. I loved how other characters from previous stories are brought in and mentioned as well. Armstrong made me crazy but somehow, he's this outrageous misogynistic character I love to hate since his behavior is so over the top.

I thought the writing was great. There is a nice flow and I loved the humor. I adore the fact that this was dual POV, I loved their voices and perspectives. This was just fantastic. It was filled with humor yes, which was awesome. But I really loved all the emotion that happened and healing. From start to finish this was awesome. Loved it!
