5.0 out of 5 starsBook Boyfriend Alert!
Reviewed in the United States on May 6, 2018
Denise Hunter has created one of the most memorable characters in Honeysuckle Dreams. Brady Collins, the hero, is such a good guy with the most loving and selfless heart. Swoon worthy in every way! The heroine, Hope Daniels, has a generous heart and is willing to go the extra mile to help Brady keep his son when the evil grandparents sue Brady for custody. The love story Brady and Hope share is believable and so very sweet. Of course there is a crisis situation that threatens to ruin Brady’s and Hope’s relationship, but if Brady doesn’t melt your heart as he fights for Hope, nothing can. Honeysuckle Dreams is the second book in the Blue Ridge Romance series, but, even though characters from the first book make appearances, Hunter does a good job of giving you just enough details so you won’t be lost. It's sweet, clean, and re-readable.
5.0 out of 5 starsA testimony to loyalty and dedication

In Denise Hunter's latest novel, Honeysuckle Dreams, Brady Collins is the handsome, loving, and attentive single father of baby Sam. Hope Daniels is the best friend you'd love to have. Loyal and true, and always looking for a way to help someone in need.
When Brady's custody of Sam is called into question, he and Hope work as a team to give baby Sam the best possible family. What could be better than two best friends forming a lifelong commitment to raise this sweet child? Maybe the offer of Hope's dream job in a big city?
This story has everything that I love about a contemporary Christian romance novel. Survival after tragedy, conflict of desires, relatable characters, and of course, romance. There were several faith conversations and dedication to Christian ideals also.
Overall, I loved this story and highly recommend it! I will give this story a 5 out of 5! This is one of Denise Hunter's best and I can't wait for the final book in the series (about handsome Pastor Jack!!!) to come out in November!

5 things from Honeysuckle Dreams by Denise Hunter
1) Brady and Hope arrange a marriage of convenience to get custody of Brady's son, who, turns out, isn't his son at all. 2)Panic Attacks 3) A radio jock, A fancy car mechanic, a court case, and volatile grandparents 4)Hope wants a family but not love, and Brady wants someone for once to choose him. 5) Coping Skills. What a joke. This didn't feel like coping. It felt as though [Hope] was fighting for her life and losing. And she was already dreading the next attack. There'd be another one coming, she knew.
This is my favorite book by Denise Hunter. I love a good marriage of convenience story! Denise handles mental health issues with grace and understanding.
This was such a beautiful story of love and sacrifice! I've always loved Denise Hunter, but this is probably my favorite book she's ever written. All of the characters felt very real, like people you could enjoy a coffee with. Brady was completely swoon-worthy and loveable. Who doesn't love a man with a baby though? Hope was my favorite though, not because she was perfect or always likable, but because I could relate to her. She struggled with anxiety throughout the book and at times it affected her choices. I've struggled with anxiety for years and never have I seen such a realistic portrayal of mental illness in a Christian fiction book. Thank you Denise Hunter for this beautiful story!
Brady, Brady, Brady. It’s fair to say I’ve never met a fictional character with this man’s loyalty, honor, honesty, and responsible nature. I was curious after reading the previous book, as to where Denise Hunter would take us with Brady and Hope’s story, and she didn’t disappoint. Both characters faced the same issue with getting beyond past relationships, but each was cleverly twisted to be different from the other in a way that reached to my heart. I’m super excited for the next book in this series!
Ahhh, what a wonderful love story! This is a modern day “marriage of convenience” book. Hope and Brady both have heart breaking pasts, but they’ve been close friends for years. When Brady learns the upsetting news about his infant son, Hope steps in to help. Can they make this work without romantic love? Will Hope conquer her fears? Will Brady and Hope let God work in their lives? This is a sweet love story that I’d recommend to anyone!
In Denise Hunter's latest novel "Honeysuckle Dreams," she tells the heartwarming story of single father Brady Collins (who is raising his baby son after the death of his ex-wife) and local radio host Hope Daniels. Hope agrees to play the part of Brady's loving fiancee in order to help him fight for custody of his son after it is determined that Brady is not the biological father. Sparks soon fly between the two longtime friends as they navigate the difficulties in their new life together.
Another wonderful book by Denise Hunter. A well written contemporary story filled with romance, emotion, and very relatable characters. I definitely would recommend this book!
Hope and Brady were great friends with nothing more on the horizon until circumstances changed. While a marriage of convenience is not a new storyline, this time the expectations were a bit different. There was the expected awkwardness of going from friends to married partners and all that is implied but even that was handled with a long range goal of staying married. Hope and Brady were committed to the marriage no matter the outcome of the conflict. So what makes this story compelling? It was the fear versus faith factor. Both main characters knew what it meant to fear being left behind. How they found healing was beautiful.
