    Story
    "Quick read, bones but no meat"

    This is a really interesting read, it has the bones of the story but lacks meat. I love shifters, especially bears, so this was right up my alley.

    Many things in the story are vague and left hanging. I was unsure what time period this was, it did not feel fully modern and there was mention of carriage travel, but it was never stated. There is a mention of other paranormals but the world is never fleshed out, perhaps the next book will give more detail.

    The romance of John and Crystal is very quick and while it held warmth, it was missing passion. Not a steamy hot read but there is a little open door bedroom action. I felt a connection between the two but it either needed more time to build or it should have been combustible all consuming heat.

    I listened to the audiobook narrated by Vanessa Hart. She has a great smoky voice that lends itself beautifully to the read. The voices are distinct and it is always clear who is speaking. I really liked the tone of John's voice. There were times when the dialogue felt stiff, partly because of the read and partly due to the writing. The speed could have been a touch faster, it was nice and steady throughout.

    Overall this was a really nice little read. I loved the narrative style, we had both leads POV's alternating. This really helps the reader engaging with the characters. This is a very minimal story and I would love to see it expanded. It has a great concept that has so much to explore, I really hope the next book gives up a better picture of the world Ms Allie is creating.

    This is my first read from Geraldine Allie, she is a fairly new voice in writing. She has great potential and I hope to see much more of her work! Especially yummy bear shifters!!!

    Disclosure - I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. All thoughts, opinions ad ratings are my own.

    Story
    "Fantastic"
    If you could sum up Sweeter than Honey in three words, what would they be?

    Passionate, Romantic, Entertaining


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Sweeter than Honey?

    When she first discovers his "secret"


    What does Vanessa Hart bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    For me it was like watching a movie she brought the characters to life.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Their first night "together"


    Any additional comments?

    I really enjoyed this book and cannot wait to read more by this author.

    Story
    "People are not what they seem ..."
    If you could sum up Sweeter than Honey in three words, what would they be?

    Engaging, fun and short (only because it was a novella vs. a novel)


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    As there were only 2 main characters in this story I like both John and Crystal. I thought that they worked well together personality wise and I would love to read more about them.


    Which character – as performed by Vanessa Hart – was your favorite?

    Again, as this was a story about 2 people (John and Crystal) I liked both of them equally. I thought Ms. Hart did portrayed them well.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes, I would because it was only an hour long. I would call this a novella vs. a novel.


    Any additional comments?

    I would love to hear more about this couple and this series.

    Story
    "Sweet & intriguing!"

    Set perhaps in the late 1800s USA, Crysta is a single woman, and doing quite well on her own in private business. John is a business man in his own right, and his biggest business is honey. Once he sees Crystal, his inner beast takes over and he knows that he must convince her that he is the man for her.

    So I am totally guessing on the era this is set in. There are no phones or locomotives, but the USA is somewhat settled and Crystal is able to hold her own in the world of business. This is set in the southeastern US, perhaps Georgia or New Orleans. Honestly, I forgot because all the fun stuff happens out in the woods in a little cabin by the stream. ;)

    John basically maneuvers Crystal into a bet. She has to spend time with him out at the cabin, chatting about how beneficial it would be to combine forces in the business world via a marriage. However John has this secret that he worries will drive Crystal away. As you can guess from the title and the name of the series, John is a shifter.

    While it was predictable that all would work out, it was still sweet to see it come to fruition. There is one brief sex scene that I wish had been longer. The author left it in a good place for the next in the series to build upon.

    The Narration: Vanessa Hart was a good choice. Her sultry southern voice for Crystal was honey on the ears. She also had a good voice for John, being very straight forward and a little gruff when needed.

    Story
    "Shape shifting romance in an hour."
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    I would have liked more backstory for both characters. What makes them tick?


    What does Vanessa Hart bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Vanessa Hart has a great deep husky voice that is ideal for romance.


    What would have made this romance irresistible?

    There was no connection with the characters. Why did we want this couple to get together? I like the premise and even how his secret is revealed to her, but there is no character development at all.

    Story
    "Full of possibilities but …"
    Would you try another book written by Geraldine Allie or narrated by Vanessa Hart?

    No I wouldn't try another book written by this author.
    But I did like the narrator, so I would try another book narrated by Vanessa Hart.


    Any additional comments?

    This is a story that I bought based on the reviews and was disappointed.

    The story has a great start and really shows a promising development.

    But I don’t know if it is matter of short inspiration, or shortage of paper, it then jumps forward a lot of chapters.

    If it was a book I would check and check if any pages were missing or it was a printer problem. Since it was an audiobook, it is a fact that the writer missed something.

    So I was very disappointed with the development of otherwise a promising good story.
