Summary, etc.:
A love story about what happens when two assistants tasked with keeping a rocky relationship from explosion start to feel sparks of their own. 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...

    Lauren's (Twice in a Blue Moon, 2019) latest focuses on the personal assistants to the Tripps, a married celebrity couple whose home design and renovation empire threatens to take over their employees' lives. James, who cannot afford to lose his job, resents being relegated to working as the husband's assistant despite having been hired as an engineer. Carey, whose education stopped after high school, delights in the fact that she and James perform essentially the same role. Their already high-stakes positions soon become even more stressful as they are tasked with trying to preserve the fiction of their bosses' blissful marriage. Their initially chilly relationship thaws as they bond over their new responsibilities, leaving them free to acknowledge and act upon their mutual attraction. The novel's events are recounted from the near future through alternating points of view, with interview transcripts, book excerpts, and social media posts all adding to the sense of dread stoked by the Tripps' rapidly deteriorating relationship. This absorbing romance may make readers think twice about the human cost of crafting and maintaining a celebrity couple's perfect image. Copyright 2020 Booklist Reviews.
