Honey Bee by Heather Shere

#FREE with #KindleUnlimited!!
Fun read and the writing flowed making it an easy read. The lead male character, Bo, is flawed which is a nice break from the perfect romantic leading male. I was right with Sophia as she calls him an ass and a dick – he truly was acting like one. Even though he was those things, he was still a charming character that you root for. This is a “real-life” type of read, meaning not a fantasy romance that very rarely happens, but reads as how relationships really are. Sophia is a strong female who didn’t put up with Bo’s crap, called it as it is, and has a great outlook on life. Stealing the show is Sophia’s wonderful dog, Triton, who annoys and torments the hell out of Bo, but also helps bring him back to life. Told in alternating views of the two main characters which I loved. The author writes so that you feel the electric charge between the characters. A wonderful debut novel. I look forward to reading more from this author.

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.
