Honeysuckle Dreams by Denise Hunter ~ Review

Lucie's Review:

Brady Collins becomes a full-time single dad when his ex-wife die in  car accident, he loves his son, Sam, and wants to do everything he can to give him a good life. Brady is shocked when Sam's maternal grandparents sue for custody and require a paternity test.

Hope Daniels has been helping to watch Sam during the difficult transition, and is there when Brady's lawyer gives him the bad news. The lawyer assumes that Brady and Hope are engaged, and says that it will help their case in the custody battle. Hope agrees to the engagement, but the lawyer keeps pushing for them to get married before the court date.

Will their ruse be worth it?

I like that Brady and Hope talk about what marriage would mean for them, no matter how the case goes. Brady feels trapped, but feels like getting married would be insane. While Hope has been hurt in the past, but would like to have children.

Brady realizes that he needs to courts his fiance, and later his wife. He is very supportive of her work and dreams. They both use humor to lighten tense situations, and communicate well. I liked them together, and Brady is such a good man. Brady is committed to making their marriage work, even if it wasn't the way that he thought he would find love again, and he never gives up.

Hope is used to solving her own problems and has trouble confiding in Brady and letting him share her burdens.

This book had a good premise, and a great ending, but there was a lot of "head talk" with psychological undertones. I liked the characters, especially Brady. The romance was more PG-13, and there were parts that I wasn't completely sure what to do with, but it did get resolved by the end. Not quite my cup of tea, but good premise, and great characters.
