Romance author Staci Hart brings readers back to Lindenbach, Texas with the second book in her Blum’s Bees Series. On the Honey Side, which comes out on February 24th, follows the eldest Blum Sister and she navigates her second chance at love.
No one can ever have Keaton Meyer. Least of all Daisy Blum. 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 their small town. Until tragedy struck. And then he disappeared completely. Now he’s resurfaced, and Daisy can’t keep her eyes off him. He’s an island surrounded by lava, bound by a desert and guarded by dragons. She doesn’t stand a sunshine’s chance in a hail storm. But their siblings disagree and are out to prove it, nudging Daisy and Keaton into each other in the hopes they’ll fall. But with their town in tumult and the two of them firmly in the middle, nothing between them is easy. And when Keaton is faced with an impossible decision, Daisy learns the truth of what she already knew: No one can have Keaton Meyer. And she has the broken heart to prove it.
As with the rest of Staci Hart’s books, this romcom was fun, fast-paced, and just a joy to read! The small town setting of Lindenbach, Texas is endearing to read about, even if you haven’t read For Love and Honey, but seeing cameos of some past protagonists is really fun and just adds more depth to the story.
Daisy and Keaton’s love story is one that is stemmed in tragedy, but to see the two of them both give themselves a second chance at love is so wholesome and satisfying (and a little bit steamy)! Thrown in some town drama, charity work, and a cute match-making niece and you have a wonderful love story! Plus, meddling siblings are always funny to read about in my opinion so having them thrown in there made this book that much sweeter!
Like the rest of Hart’s books, this story is endearing, charming, and a little steamy! I cannot wait for the next Blum’s Bees book to come out!
