Handle With Care is the love story between Wren the handler/babysitter and Lincoln Moorehead, the acting CEO. I wanted this story to be so much more. I wanted more push and pull between Wren and Lincoln. Wren is a PR consultant hired to repaired the image of the scandal ridden organization of Moorehead Media mainly because of its current CEO, Armstrong Moorehead. She hopes the assignment will open doors to pursue future endeavors in funding her own passion projects.
When the prodigal son, Lincoln returns home for the funeral he is not a happy camper. He has managed to distance himself from his family and only endure enough until he can return to his life away from Moorehead Media. Suddenly he finds himself the acting CEO and dealing with Wren.
Wren transforms Lincoln from a bearded mountain man to Mr. Madison Avenue CEO. Their attraction grows as they spend time together ultimately in a secret affair. Lincoln’s mom and brother is very much against it. Gwendolyn and Armstrong are desperately trying to retain control of the family business, money and status. This is the angst of the story. As family secrets are revealed, Lincoln has to focus on reconciling his past relationship with his father.
As you read, you may ask yourself where is the drama, action, and romance. Don’t get me wrong, the first meeting between Wren and Lincoln was priceless. However, all the chemistry was slowly lacking until the second half of the story.
For fans of Hunting, the witty dialogue and sexy scenes do not disappoint. For a slow burn love story, Lincoln is very yummy in a geeky kind of way. It was a delight to see Wren being a sexy confident single woman who is not afraid to express what she likes and wants in the bedroom. The heat between them are enough to singe the eyebrows.
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.
