On the Honey Side by Staci Hart
No one can ever have Keaton Meyer.
Least of all me.
The brooding construction manager is a man of myth and legend, rarely seen in the wild. Once upon a time, he was the star quarterback, the smiling homecoming king, royalty in our small town. Until tragedy struck. And then he disappeared completely.
Now he’s resurfaced, and I can’t keep my eyes off him.
He’s an island surrounded by lava, bound by a desert and guarded by dragons. I don’t stand a sunshine’s chance in a hail storm.
Our siblings disagree and are out to prove it, nudging us into each other in the hopes we’ll fall. But with our town in tumult and the two of us firmly in the middle, nothing between us is easy. And when he’s faced with an impossible decision, I learn the truth of what I already knew.
No one can have Keaton Meyer.
And I have the broken heart to prove it.
4 Heart Review by Ashley
In true Staci Hart fashion, On the Honey Side is a rom-com with heat, humor and heart in equal measures. I loved that this book took an honest look at some very real and current issues facing so many communities today in a way that was realistic and relatable. I digress...the opening was a punch to the chest that left me longing for some happy.
I adored both of the leading characters. Daisy was so strong and stubborn. Steady and glue that held so much together for her family. And Keaton...ah...this man. He was so growly and broody but also just such a good man. He stood up for what he believed and what was right, even when it wasn't the easy thing to do.
A shared mission brought these two into each other's orbit. Sure they'd 'known' each other for years but always at a distance. Keaton didn't let anyone close and Daisy had her own heartbreak (and the Curse). It didn't take long for their friendship to blossom into more.
Small-town antics and meddling siblings were enough to keep everyone on their toes. Especially when not so subtle ultimatums were tossed out. More than once I wished I could've crawled inside the pages and hugged Keaton and Daisy. For their pain, the needless pressure they put on themselves, the sacrifices they made...But goodness did I love seeing these two broken and reserved souls find solace, comfort, peace...home in one another. And that ending oh my heart (and misty eyes)...filled to bursting.
