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. 

Let the record show that I tried to be the logical one for five seconds here, and you had zero interest in listening to reason.


I was super excited when I found out that Lincoln was getting a book. If you have read any of the previous Shaking Up series books there was mention of him throughout, but he was always a bit of a mystery. I mean, who wouldn’t be curious about Armstrong’s brother?

I loved loved loved Wren. How can you not love a woman who is willing to put Armstrong in his place. She is a genius when it comes to PR. So when Lincoln returns to town and has to take over as CEO for Moorehead Media she is hired to help his image and help him with the PR side of things, as Lincoln likes to call her, his babysister. Lincoln was a mystery but the more and more we got to know about him the more I LOVED him. He is selfless, he is the complete opposite of anyone in his family. I loved the relationship he has with Griffin. Despite being cousins, they are more brothers.

I loved the banter and chemistry between Lincoln and Wren. It was instant and truly got better throughout the story.  I loved how caring Lincoln could be and possessive, especially when it came to keeping Armstrong away from Wren. The pop ups from all the previous characters was great and I’d love to have seen a girls night with Ruby, Amalie and Wren. Armstrong, he is a man I love to hate. Compared to the other books, we got the most of him in this one. The man is a complete train wreck. Am I the only one hoping that Helena writes him a book?!

For any fans of the Shaking Up series this a MUST READ or really anyone looking for a laugh out loud romance.
