“HONEY GIRL is an emotional, heartfelt, charming debut, and I loved every moment of it.”
— Jasmine Guillory, New York Times bestselling author of The Proposal

When becoming an adult means learning to love yourself first.

With her newly completed PhD in astronomy in hand, twenty-eight-year-old Grace Porter goes on a girls’ trip to Vegas to celebrate. She’s a straight A, work-through-the-summer certified high achiever. She is not the kind of person who goes to Vegas and gets drunkenly married to a woman whose name she doesn’t know…until she does exactly that.

This one moment of departure from her stern ex-military father’s plans for her life has Grace wondering why she doesn’t feel more fulfilled from completing her degree. Staggering under the weight of her parent’s expectations, a struggling job market and feelings of burnout, Grace flees her home in Portland for a summer in New York with the wife she barely knows.

In New York, she’s able to ignore all the constant questions about her future plans and falls hard for her creative and beautiful wife, Yuki Yamamoto. But when reality comes crashing in, Grace must face what she’s been running from all along—the fears that make us human, the family scars that need to heal and the longing for connection, especially when navigating the messiness of adulthood.

Slightly Smiling Face“I really enjoyed reading this book. The characters are very believable and struggle with very day to day things which makes you connect to them. It’s not the typical romance novel and I absolutely loved the book for it! It’s about complicated family constellations and being a good friend. It’s about being honest and true to yourself as well as being kind and thoughtful of others. This book gave me all the feels I need from a good book. Can definitely recommend!”

Thumbs Up“I really enjoyed this month’s read. I loved that Grace began a journey of healing and forgiveness. I wish we would have seen what unfolded when Grace met with Colonel for lunch. But overall, I really enjoyed this book!”

Loudly Crying Face“The romance wasn’t the focus but I’m okay with that. I like my romance complex. This was a coming of age for adults . Realizing that your best is the best and being happy should be a factor in that. Allowing yourself to let go of everyone’s expectations of what you should do and what you can be and just doing it. The writing was beautiful and what we saw of the romance was as well. I loved this book!”
