Sweet as Honey: The Honeybee Sisters #1 by Jennifer Beckstrand $1.99
Sweet as Honey - Jennifer Beckstrand

Smart, kind, and good-hearted, the three Christner girls are affectionately known as The Honeybee Sisters in the beloved Wisconsin Amish community where, under the care of their aunt, they've grown into skilled beekeepers--and lovely, sought-after young women. . .

Though she has blossomed into a beauty, Lily Christner doesn't really believe it. Deep down, she still feels like a lonely, gawky teenager. Maybe that's why she's all but promised herself to Paul Glick, the one boy who never teased her in her awkward girlhood--unlike Dan Kanagy, whose creative name-calling left her in tears many a time. Now he's back in town after two years away--and being surprisingly sweet, suspiciously attentive--and making Lily unsettlingly yet deliciously nervous. It seems Dan wants Lily's forgiveness--and her heart. But can he convince her--not to mention her protective schwesters and aendi--that despite the past, her future lies with him?...

The Billionaire's Secret Heart (A 'Scandals of the Bad Boy Billionaires' Romance)
The Billionaire's Secret Heart (A 'Scandals of the Bad Boy Billionaires' Romance) - Ivy Layne,Alexa Wilder,Jacqueline Sweet,Valorie Clifton Is it possible to find an alpha male with a hidden sensitive side? If so sign me up. Ivy Layne created the perfect guy. Holden is a charmer that never takes no for an answer. Josephine shows him what it means to be sensitive and like a modern day Cinderella runs away with his heart. The Billionaire's Secret Heart maybe short but does not forget to deliver the sweet or the heat.

Stubborn as a Mule (The Sex and Sweet Te... Stubborn as a Mule (The Sex and Sweet Tea Series Book 2) - Juliette Poe

I am just loving these fun, sweet stories from Juliette Poe (Sawyer Bennett).  This fun and lively Mancinkus family just keeps on providing such great entertainment!

We met Lowe Mancinkus in Trixie's story.  Lowe is not happy the family's Mainer House has been sold to some "Yankee" who buys and flips homes and he wants to make life as hard as possible for this woman.  Lowe has already boarded up the doors and windows and then sat on her porch with a gun, but now he has painted all the trim work in neon pink!  This last act has landed him in front of Judge Winston Edward Bowe again because "the woman", Melinda Rothschild has pressed charges.  After Lowe is ordered to fix what he has done, to the agreement of Melinda "Mely", all hell breaks loose.  Mely isn't happy to have to deal with Lowe and by the time they leave the courtroom, Lowe has to spend 250 hours doing work on Mely's house!

Oh, it is obvious from day 1 that these two are made for each other.  They both have that fighting streak in them.  I just adored the things these two did to piss each other off.  Of course, this ended up such great chemistry!  As Lowe and Mely spend more time together, they start to realize that they both jumped to wrong conclusions about the other and they both start developing feelings for each other.

I really enjoyed how this story was told through town gossip.  It made for some funny scenes.  And I just LOVED Morri!  He was too funny for words.  The pranks that Lowe and Morri played on each other were priceless.  

Slowly over time, Lowe and Mely started to fall hard.  Lowe was such a sweet, southern gentleman and you couldn't help but fall for him.  I just adored the way Mely felt about Lowe's family....it was something she really seemed to long for in her life.

I must admit that I was pleasantly surprised with what happened with those two and how they go to their happy ending.  Never even saw that coming!

Overall, this was a wonderful story, with such great characters.

Read, Write, Love at Seaside (Sweet with Heat: Seaside Summers Book 1) - Addison Cole


I never read the steamier version of this title. However, when I heard Melissa Foster’s alter ego would release the cleaner version I was intrigued and jumped at the chance to read a copy.


What the story is about.

Kurt Remington is a best-selling thriller author, who takes his writing seriously. This dedication led to him living a reclusive life. His family was eager to see him move beyond the world he created in his books and embrace what real life had to offer. Currently, that was not on his list of things to do, however, when Leanna Bray literally swam into his life, he would come to realise that there is someone more captivating than the characters in his fictional world.


Leanna Bray’s focus is on getting her jam-making business off the ground and bring organisation to her life. As such, a relationship is not on her list of priorities. However, when Kurt came to her rescue, she may need to reorganise her list if only she can maintain some order in her life.


My Perspective


The story

Read, Write, Love was classified as a clean read and this was true to some extent. The author alluded to intimate encounters between the main characters, but there were no graphic descriptions. In addition, the language was clean, which I found refreshing.

There is no mistaking that this is the work of Melissa Foster, which is evident by the writing style. The story was sweet and emotional. This book is evidence that the author can write not only steamy romances but also ones where the bedroom door is closed. The story was engaging and perfectly paced, with fun, sweet and emotional moments.


The Characters

One of the things I associate with the author is good character development. I have never had a problem connecting with any of her characters and this was no different.

Kurt is a man that thrives on order in every aspect of his life. He is a perfect gentleman. What I enjoyed most about him were his patience and kindness. He was not keen on being disturbed, when in his writing zone, but the fact he willingly came out of the zone to rescue Leann and her dog demonstrated his caring nature. Leann is a free spirit, who is disorganised in every aspect of their lives. She takes each day has it comes and does not follow a specific plan. Kurt and Leanna were as different as night is from the day, but in spite of the differences, they made a great couple. They complemented each other well.

Kurt learnt the importance of having a balanced life while Leann discovered the importance of being organised especially in her business life.


The romance.

Their summer romance was sweet, passionate and flirty. This was not a love at first sight scenario. Their connection was established from their initial meeting, but their romance developed throughout the summer. I enjoyed how they related to each other throughout the story.


Recommendation:

If you are looking for a clean, but passionate romance story, if you want a story that has depth and filled with emotion then look no further. Read, Write, Love at Seaside has it all.
