Once again Sam Cheever presents her readers with a fascinating hero completely worthy of worship. I am a huge fan of the Honeybun clan and just when I think no one can win me over more than the last leading man along comes a new one. Peyton Honeybun is delicious! He is take charge without being all Neanderthal. I loved watching his reaction to all the hostages and how genuine his character was. Willa Sloan is the perfect counterpart for our Honeybun hero and I love that another strong woman has won the heart of one of these fantastic men. I loved how authentic the setting is, even in such an unrealistic situation. I also loved the fact that I got to visit with a few characters I’ve met before, even though if this is your first encounter with the Honeybuns you’ll not be lost in past references. This story had it all as far as I was concerned, action, humor, sizzling sexual tension and emotions a plenty. This is solid proof as to why Sam Cheever is on my must-read list.
Peyton Honeybun just wants to get a six pack of cold beer and watch football. But, he doesn’t quite make it to that la-z-boy with his six pack. When four gunmen enter a small country grocery store and take the employees hostage, Peyton and the store’s beautiful owner just barely avoid being discovered and taken hostage with the others.
Willa Sloan doesn’t know what’s happening when she emerges from the backroom and gets a big, warm, Honeybun hand slapped over her mouth as she’s dragged backward into hiding. But when she learns her store has been infiltrated and her people taken hostage, the last thing she intends is to hide in a dark corner whimpering.
Together, they discover two things through that long and terrifying night. First, a country grocery store is a great place to run a stealth operation if you’re enterprising enough. And second, love can happen at the strangest times!
