Publisher's Summary

Honey Pieretti is sick and tired of being so nice. After she's taken advantage of on her favorite baking-themed TV show, Honey and her lifelong best friend, Carter, decide to cast aside their trusting personalities by starting a competition to toughen up.

It's all fun and games until Honey realizes she's falling in love with her best friend. Convinced he doesn't feel the same way, she must decide if she can live without his friendship or hide her feelings forever. But as the competition heats up and Honey's given a chance at TV redemption, she finds that more than just love could ruin their friendship.

Can she prove to the boy next door that she's still the girl he knows?

Sweet Romance

The story was sweet and funny. The characters were interesting and well developed. Honey and her best friend Carter are too nice and decide to toughen up. The way they try to go about it is funny & silly at times. Feelings start to develop and Honey doesn't know what to do and how Carter feels about her.

The narration was well done and brought the story to life.

The story is heartwarming and has a HEA conclusion. It is part of a series but you can read it as a standalone.

Lighthearted Fun

Honey Pieretti and her platonic best friend Carter are tired of being door mats. After Honey is taken advantage of on a TV baking competition, Honey and Cater vow to turn over a new leaf and stop being so gullible.

I love Eryn Scott’s writing! She has the magic touch of mixing humor and heartache and it’s such an enjoyable ride. Her stories are so engaging and I’m always sad when they end. Her books are all over with much too soon.

The Sweetness of Honey Pie is read by Allyson Voller. She does an awesome job in this fully voiced production. I will definitely be on the lookout for more from this talented narrator!

This audiobook was given to me at no cost in exchange for an unbiased review, thanks, Audiobook Boom!

A cute, sweet story of two best friends

The Sweetness of Honey Pie written by Eryn Scott is a cute listen that revolves around Honey and Carter, two best friends, and their emerging feelings for each other. In addition, Honey owns a bakery, appeared on a game show and made a fool of herself. Both Carter and Honey are kind of pushovers and they decide to become badasses. Their plan backfires and that's all I'll say as to not ruin the story.

Allyson Voller did a good job with the narration, and I felt that her voice was perfect for what I would imagine Honey to sound like. The story itself was cute and both Honest and Carter make mistakes that lead to some awkward situations and assumptions in their lives. It comes complete with a HEA, so don't worry that you won't get one!

Sweet

I got this ARC via audiobook boom. This is my voluntary review. Honey and Carter have been friends since age 4 and in love with each other forever without either of them realizing it until they begin a challenge to change themselves from people who walk all over them to strong people who stand up for themselves do they start looking at each other through different eyes. This is a sweet HEA. The narrator's voice was sweet as honey as well. A little too sweet for me but she fit the story. There were other plot twists that kept the story going as well.

Great Book!

Any additional comments?

This is a great book with a wonderful story and well developed characters. The story flowed very well and was very enjoyable. This book will keep you reading long into the night and you will not want to put this book down until you finish. This was such a great read and full of surprises.

The narrator did a wonderful job with this book. She did a great job with the different voices of each character in this book. It was very easy to listen to and I didn’t want to stop listening until the end.

If you are looking for a great book with well-developed characters then you need to listen to this book. I am looking forward to listening to the next book by this author and narrator.

Sweet Story...when friendship becomes love

I very much enjoyed this sweet romance. The journey was poignant, sweet, and frequently funny, but it was always heart-warming as Honey learns that being tough isn't easy. Carter is a sweetheart, always in her corner, and looking out for what is best for her, even when she resorts to playing dirty. Jealousy and misunderstanding almost derail their friendship, as Honey has to decide what is most important to her. The narration was superb and you really felt Honey's genuine sweetness and her angst over trying to be bad to break even.

"Cute and Sweet Read! "


If you could sum up The Sweetness of Honey Pie in three words, what would they be?
Cute, Sweet and Quirky!

What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?
I really liked the bakery aspect of the story and all the work that goes on behind the scenes. Honey finding herself throughout the story was another part of the story I enjoyed as well.

Have you listened to any of Allyson Voller’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
No, I haven't but after listening to this performance I will be sure to check her other works out. She really brought the characters to life in this book! Well done!

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
When Honey has her "aha" moment and realizes it's ok to put yourself and happiness first. To stand up for yourself and not let others walk all over you.

Any additional comments?
This was a cute feel good story that will leave you smiling. Perfect read for a summer day.

Sweet like Honey

I received this audiobook free for an honest review. I enjoyed the wholesomeness of this story. The characters were cute. I could see myself in Honey most of the time. However, some her crazy antics were hilarious. The narrator did a great job with the characters and bringing them to life. Really enjoyed this light, cute romance.

Eryn Scott has done it again!

Another romantic comedy with a quirky female lead.

Honey Pie is seen as a pushover, strangers have a tendency to walk all over her and she can't seem to find a way to get them to leave her alone. That is, until her friend Rainy convinces her to act tougher due to a contestant using Honey's recipe to win a baking competition aired on live television. Honey's childhood best friend, Carter, has the same problem of being too soft and can't seem to get what he wants out of his career, as a result.

They pair up on this project, this endeavour to become badasses... But, will it mean the loss of their endearing personalities? Will their friendship survive all the changes?

This book is, like all of Eryn Scott's, absolutely adorable and instantly relatable. I'm often wary of people taking advantage of my tendency to give in when plans change or some problem arises that they require help for. I am stronger at refusing or not accepting excuses but there are times, especially with someone you aren't that close to, that you can't say no. I've always chalked it up to British politeness but that doesn't mean you should stop being too careful. After all, with a stranger or a distant friend you don't want to set the precedent that you can be walked all over. But then, you hardly want to be regarded as hostile or dismissive- there's a fine balance. This is what Honey Pie soon discovers, and I know others have this same problem.

I have favourited this book. You can always count on Eryn to deliver a fresh new love story that will garner hearty chuckles. I fell in love with Carter and Honey's friendship- it was so sweet, they were soul-mates. You'll have to read it to understand it!

I have become such a huge fan of Eryn's work- especially after reading this one because I appreciate how she writes of everyday women with eccentric personalities and their own quiet strength and determination.

I listened to the audio book version, narrated by Allyson Voller. Her narration was excellent and she brought the story to life.

I received this book from the author for review consideration.
