Title: Honey Bee
Author: Heather Shere
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: January 23, 2017
Love can be as sweet as honey, or it can sting like a bee.
Bo Smith knows that if you go looking for honey, you get stung, so he has his life just how he wants it. No hassles, no complications, and no heartache. As the handsome high school athletics coach, he would be the pick of the small town he grew up in…if he was into commitment or dating…or even calling back. But he has sworn off anything resembling a future and his mind isn’t going to change.
Then his eyes lock on the new girl in town…She’s beautiful, intelligent, and full of surprises. Just the kind of complication he has been avoiding.
Sophia Brown is looking for the sweet simple life. She has it all planned out. Getting used to life alone isn’t easy, but she has her garden, her bees, and her dog Triton to tend to. It’s the fresh start she’s been dreaming of, surrounded by nothing but open fields to stare at all day.
Nothing at all…unless you count the high school football team and their distractingly handsome coach, practicing right across the street.
But when sparks fly, Bo must choose between the sting of his past or the sweetness of the future.
He may just find that honey tastes good on everything.
This book had a shaky start, but I decided to continue on because I thought it had a lot of potential.
I wasn’t disappointed.
This was a quick, cute read.
I really liked Sophie’s character.
She was kind, smart, and had a really good heart.
There was a lot of chemistry between the H/h and at times it was kinda frustrating the read them circle one another.
The problem with their relationship was that the lead male character (Bo) was very immature in the regards to having a “real” relationship.
Around the 50% mark of the book, he finally gets his head out of his ass and starts to grow up, and the end result is worth the read.
I think this is a good debut novel, and I look forward to reading more of this author’s work.
