I’m not a huge fan of cisgender heterosexual romance novels. Not because I think they are a lower form of writing or any elitism, just I have enough heteros cis stuff in my life as is. As Sweet As Honey is an exception to that, one cause I adore Anna, but also because I love this plot line. I love enemies to lovers and romance budding from bargains.
Chelsea Lambert is an unhappy receptionist, working for Honey, a glitzy dating website that she thinks is more than a bit sleazy. But she’s got bills to pay, especially if she wants to avoid her manipulative aunt’s clutches. She didn’t plan on spilling her views on Honey to the handsome stranger who rescued her from being late for work – and she certainly didn’t plan on him being the gold-plated sleazebag she was mocking – yet here she was, ready for the earth to swallow her up.As Sweet As Honey Synopsis
Neil O’Connell, a Californian businessman, thought New Zealand would be an idyllic escape. The perfect place to get some space, avoid his past and definitely to avoid complicated attachments. When he is the unwitting target of Chelsea’s vitriolic diatribe, he unexpectedly finds himself having complicated feelings, the exact kind he needs to avoid.
When Chelsea’s aunt puts pressure on her to find a rich husband for her cousin, Chelsea sees an opportunity. She proposes a deal to Neil: three dates with her glamorous cousin, who is the perfect match for him. And three date with her. Three dates to show she can’t be dazzled with dollars. Three dates they don’t belong together.
It’s just three dates. What could go wrong?
I mean doesn’t that sound adorable and cute! I might also be interested in it because Chelsea sounds a lot like me. Furthermore, I’m always keen on supporting Kiwi authors and books taking place in New Zealand.
