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 distractedly handsome coach, practicing right across the street.

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.

My thoughts…  **spoilers**

Sophia is a sweet, happy woman who has just moved to the small town her mom grew up in. She meets Bo when her dog, Triton, is sick and she can’t lift him into the car.  Sophia's home faces the practice field of the local school, which Bo is the teams coach. Bo sends a group of players over to help with her dog and Triton wants no part of it. Bo steps up to help Sophia lift Triton into her car.

Sophia thinks the coach is hot but with his running hot and cold towards her, she’s not sure what to think of him. Bo isn't into relationships, no matter how tempting the new girl to town is. When Sophia becomes friends with Bo’s sister, Judy, Triton's veterinarian, circumstances force them to spend a little time together, over and over, it seems they form a friendship.

Triton loves Bo and Bo has a strong dislike for animals because of a tragic accident that happened many years ago, with his sister Judy. Judy was pregnant, Bo and Judy’s husband Dave were arguing which turned physical, Judy was upset and left in the car along with the family pet. Judy was in a car accident which resulted in her losing the baby and their dog. Judy would never be able to conceive children again.  After the incident, Bo believes he is the cause of it all and he doesn’t form any long-term attachments. Until Sophia.

Honey Bee is a quick read with virtually no angst. If you are looking for a feel-good novel, with a lovable dog and everything that comes with small town life, this book is for you.  

Happy reading ~ Jovi
