‘Joyful, warm, touching’ Jasmine Guillory, New York Times bestselling author

Full of well-placed reminders that everything will be okBookPage

Set It Up meets The Proposal in this brand new love story from the bestselling author of The Unhoneymooners . . .

From the New York Times bestselling author Christina Lauren comes a delightfully charming love story about what happens when two assistants tasked with keeping a rocky relationship on the rails start to feel sparks of their own.

Carey Douglas has worked for design gurus Melissa and Rusty Tripp for nearly a decade, 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 favourite couple can’t stand each other.

James McCann, 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 can 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, Carey and James vow to work together to keep their bosses’ secrets hidden. But if they stop playing along – and start playing for keeps – they may have the chance to build something beautiful together . . .
