I’ve got to say, grumpy bear heroes are quickly becoming my favorites to read about. As far as favorites go in the Shacking Up series, Lincoln takes all the cake!
I loved that he didn’t exactly fit the mold of a swanky CEO with his dedication to humanitarian projects, you can’t help but just admire him almost instantly. And once he’s thrown into his new role that he wants nothing to do with, we’re quickly shown how loyal he is to his family. Well at least the ones that truly matter to him.
And then we throw Wren into the mix and she slowly hacks away Lincoln’s grumpy bear tendencies. She’s not his babysitter, therefore a handler is the proper term. These two have the banter down because well who wants to put up with a bad attitude 24/7. But the more they’re around each other, something starts to develop between them.
I loved that Wren can handle her own and literally take a man down when necessary. Lincoln can be a bit tough to come around to because he doesn’t hold back on anything. And he’s not afraid to say exactly what’s on his mind. When it comes to Wren he knows how to wear her down and just swoon her pants off. There’s no second guessing when it comes to Lincoln.
I’ve got to say, this series has been a little all over the place for me. So I’m happy that things picked up because I truly loved this one. I’m kind of hoping that the series ends here, but I’m not entirely sure that it will.
Handle With Care takes over this series and I definitely recommend it!
