When the devil comes to town, you have to meet him head on.

Which is exactly what I did when Grant Stone rolled into our small Texas town, driving a sports car I could fit in the bed of my truck, wearing a suit as black as his soul. He’s here to acquire mineral rights to half a dozen farms in town.

And there’s no way he’s getting mine.

I don’t make deals with the devil.

So when he challenges me to show him the small town ropes, my motivation is the prospect of seeing him make a fool of himself. He might have an angle, but if he thinks he can finagle me into endangering my bee farm, he’s got another thing coming.

Until the line in the sand is washed away.

My farm in danger. A town in upheaval. A man who will stop at nothing to get what he wants.

And me in the middle.

When the devil comes to town, you have to meet him head on.

And when he sneaks into your heart, he’ll only break it.


4.5 ‘I’ll be your somebody’ Stars!

ARC provided by the author in exchange for an honest review.

Staci Hart hit the jackpot when she started writing small-town romance! I fell in love with her style years ago and it just keeps getting me more addicted every single time I read one of her creations. Actually, the early reviews for this book were making me even more excited and, as a consequence, I had crazy high expectations for it. Well, of course, Staci did not disappoint. She did a brilliant job with this love story and the continuation of the development for these characters we already met in previous books. Get ready because you’ll fall in love all over again!

So, For Love or Honey is Staci’s newest standalone novel but it’s very much connected to her two last releases (Bet the Farm and Friends with Benedicts). This is the love story between Jo Blum and Grant Stone, two mortal enemies who find themselves fighting against a very powerful connection as soon as they meet. Jo, her mother and her sisters live in a small town in Texas, taking care of each other and their bee farm. Enter Grant. He is a powerful (but lost) man determined to acquire the rights to various farms in town, including the Blum’s. But it’s not easy when you have to deal with strong minded women and also an explosive chemistry you weren’t expecting. What will be the result of that? What is more important, business or love?

It was a rare thing to want someone’s trust, to crave it. At some undetermined point, I’d stopped wanting hers for the contract. I wanted it for my own. I wanted her for my own.

I don’t know why I am still surprised every time I read anything by Staci, because I already know it will be amazing, but she always manages to make me feel giddy about everything happening. In For Love or Honey I have everything I love about family / small town interactions and a good enemies to lovers romance. Staci’s books feel light and emotional at the same time. She has time to give us a bit of everything and I love that. I love to really get to know the characters, to see their true selves and to see them falling in love. Jo and Grant were so great. Jo is strong, sassy and very in love with her family. Grant is focused, a bit lost and a whole lot of deliciousness. Mix that together and what do you get? An unexpected but wonderful couple. And trust me, you don’t want to miss seeing how this relationship develops and how Grant and Jo finally discover what it is to really love another person.

Having him for mine and being his was all I wanted, and I’d never known. Not until him.

Therefore, I am rating For Love or Honey with 4.5 STARS because it had every aspect that I love about a small-town romance: a great crew of characters, a lot of family interactions, a whole lot of banter, hate that isn’t really hate and a burning chemistry between the main characters. I adored Jo and Grant together. They were so surprising but as soon as they got together it was clear they were made for each other! I loved seeing how they fall in love and I cannot wait to read more about these characters, especially the other Blum sisters. Be sure to check this one out, guys!
