After Brady Collins’ ex-wife dies, he receives devastating news—his nine-month-old son Sam isn’t his son at all. And Sam’s wealthy maternal grandparents want custody of the child. Brady knows he’s in for the fight of his life. But regardless of what any blood test says, Sam is his son, and Brady will go to any lengths to keep him.
Brady’s attorney tips him off that one major life change would virtually assure him of winning guardianship of baby Sam at the final hearing: an impending marriage. And his friend Hope is willing to step in as the loving and devoted fiance.
Local radio celebrity Hope Daniels has been driven by a solitary goal her entire life, and after a happy accident she’s finally offered her dream job. But if the truth comes out about her arrangement with Brady, she may miss the chance of a lifetime and stand in the way of a dear friend’s dreams.
As Brady and Hope make sacrifices to help each other in their times of need, they risk uncovering a truth neither of them expects to find.

I am always excited to read a new book by Denise Hunter. She's been a favorite author of mine for years. As always, I enjoyed the plot of Honeysuckle Dreams. In my opinion, she is one of the best authors at fully delving into a male POV. Hope and Brady are both characters you cheer on, from the beginning of the book. It had more of a friendship feel in the beginning that soon turned into romantic tension, which is so true to life. It's how my own relationship with my husband began.
Brady's fight to keep custody of his son, at times, seems impossible--especially in light of the twist that Sam isn't his biological son. I loved that Brady still fought, and didn't walk away. That said so much about the man himself.
I enjoyed this book. I was given a complimentary copy of this book. No review was required. All opinions are my own.
