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.

Handle with Care is a decent romance with mediocre chemistry. 

Handle with Care is a workplace romance where the main character, Wren, is hired to handle Moorehead Media’s public profile after Lincoln’s many debaucheries. Wren is then hired to help acclimate Lincoln’s older brother as the new CEO after years of being away from the family and the company.

This could have been a great workplace romance, but the main characters lacked sizzling palpable chemistry. There were moments when the sexual tension was thick, but they were rare.

Overall, Handle with Care is a quick read that is sure to please but is nowhere near my favourite of the series.
