Cypher Lawrence worked for RFS Development and her job was to secure the farm land owned by Jacinto Blakemore. Jacinto lived off his land and absolutely refused to sell which did not please Cypher’s boss Gerard Flowers. To show Cypher why he refused to sell, Jacinto invited her to spend the day at his farm just so she could see the beauty of it.
Her boss couldn’t understand why she would agree, but Cypher looked at it like a challenge and wanted to see for herself.
I have read a few stories by this author and have enjoyed them, my favorite being ‘Hot for Teacher’. She has an ease of writing that draws you into her characters and their lives and makes you feel at home. Milk and Honey was one of those stories, the characters were likeable and the story was a good one. That being said, when reading this story it was at times slow moving in some areas and even though there was attraction between the characters I didn’t feel like there was any real chemistry.
As I said, I liked both characters and I liked them with each other, but something was missing, that something that makes you want to continue reading even after the last page has been read. Milk and Honey is a pleasant story and I would recommend it as a book you should put on your reading list. I just wanted a little bit more of a connection between the two characters.
