Product Description

From Publishers Weekly

Phillips's new novel, a psychology-driven tale of tortured yet shallow characters, can't touch her earlier, delightful Hot Shot. Honey Jane Moon is only 16 but has been her family's commanding force for years when she decides to drive her pretty cousin Chantal Booker from South Carolina to California to audition for TV's Dash Coogan Show. Dash, "the last of America's movie cowboy heroes" is indeed impressed--but by Honey, whom he picks to play his daughter. Although suddenly tossed into life's fast lane, Honey still wants just what she always wanted: a close-knit family and some affection. Her South Carolina kin live with her, but their closeness resembles the adhesion of leeches. Dash, who learned about relationships from his ex-wives, turns a cold shoulder to Honey, who desperately needs him to be a real-life father figure, while Eric Dillon, Honey's "dark, sullen, and gorgeous" co-star, stomps on the puppy love she has to offer. Yet it is only through their complicated relationships that Honey, Dash and Eric can finally exorcise their personal demons.

Product Description

Honey Jane Moon is a scrappy little know-it all—brave, smart, but ill-prepared to become the most famous child star in America, even though she's not quite as young as everyone believes. It won't take her long to drive the men in her life crazy. There's Eric Dillion, a smoldering bad boy and one of Hollywood's most gifted actors. And Dash Coogan, the last of the cowboy heroes, a man trapped on a screen too small to contain a legend. When Honey falls in love, she'll do it the only way she knows how—with all her heart.

Even though Honey Moon is one of my most favourite books it is not Susan's usual uplifting, humorous romantic reads. It's about broken people finding their way. The book is very heart wrenching. It evokes a lot of different emotions and I think that is what makes it such a great book. You really feel when reading it. I was riveted from the beginning and became a champion for Honey right from the start. You want her so badly to succeed and have a better life. She is NOT perfect, nor are the other main characters and that's what makes it real and more interesting to read than your average romance novels.

4.0 out of 5 stars Intense but good March 29 2004
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
If you've never read a Susan Phillips book and you enjoy light, fun romance (as I do), DO NOT let this be your first SEP novel! This book is intense with a lot of emotionally difficult things going on. Instead I recommend Breathing Room, Heaven Texas, It Had To Be You, First Lady or Lady Be Good. I do not normally enjoy novels like Honey Moon. The characters here are mostly emotional messes who are still being heavily influenced by the bad things that happened to them when they were young. But, as always SEP does a fantastic job showing their growth and healing. I did think that Honey and Eric's falling in love with each other was way too abrupt. I really would have liked to see them become gradual friends who helped each other heal over a longer period of time before they became lovers. I was also a bit disturbed by the relationship between Honey and Dash. Not the fact that their relationship turned to a rather co-dependent love (stuff like that happens) but that while Honey was allowed to grow and form a healthy, mature relationship with Eric, Dash was not. He was killed off while still a washed up actor with very little respect. I felt SEP did his character a diservice and it was frustrating for the book to spend so much time with him and he ends up as he does. I almost gave the book three stars for that point alone. But, overall I thought the book was very good and I recommend it if you are looking for a romance with intensity and darkness. Oh, and I have to say one more thing. I appreciate so much that all the characters actions in this book make sense. There are no stupid misunderstandings and all the characters stay in character. Thank you Ms. Phillips!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Tender and Sweet Romance (In a non-icky setting) June 18 2002
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Susan Elizabeth Phillips is my very favorite author, and while this is one of her older books, this is also one of her best. Honey Moon, the title character, is struggling to escape her poor Southern roots, so she enters her pretty cousin Chantal in the Miss Paxawatchie beauty contest, where the first prize is an audition in the new Dash Coogan Show. Honey and Chantal have to drive an old beatup pickup truck to Hollywood, and they meet up with Chatal's future husband Gordon, needless to say, Chantal is no longer interested in Hollywood or the Dash Coogan Show. Honey, in her desire to escape, becomes the one that gets the role on the show. As the show progresses, Honey meets some of the most influential people in her life. These people are Liz, the diva of the show who Honey hates to begin with, and she then turns into one of Honey's best friends. Dash, whom Honey looks to as almost a father, but then becomes a tender lover. However, the person that Honey most feels the desire to love and be loved by is Eric. Eric is one of the sexiest characters that Ms. Phillips has ever written. Eric is very loving towards children, and he re-enters Honey's life at her lowest point. The story between Honey and Eric is one that should not be missed. Personally, I think that Eric is very sexy and he reminds me of Lorenzo Gage in Breathing Room. This is a novel that should not be overlooked because the story is both tender and romantic.

5.0 out of 5 stars Mature Readers, Read This . . . . April 7 2001
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This is a literature filled with deep human emotions and psychology. The depth and knowledge of her writing, characters, plot, dialogue, etc., were just amazing. The characters were very real, and I guess I'll just confess that I'm drooling and lusting over Eric Dillon. OMG! What a man!
The different characters he played around Honey, namely Dev, Patches, big-shot movie star and the real Eric, were just incredible. It takes a truly gifted writer to even begin to pull something like this off. Eric's different characters were extremely touching and entertaining.
I just wish there were more smooth transition and development b/w Eric and Honey when they met at the park as adults. It seemed a bit abrupt that he found her attractive all of a sudden after all those years of ignoring, avoiding and just plain not thinking about her. The sudden interest on his part, with no explanation for the attraction other than her pointy mouth, made the relationship seem shaky and a bit unbelievable for me for a long time.
However, there were so many great things about this book, and one of them was the healing through the roller coaster. We as human beings build or fix things all the time as a way of fixing a part of our soul. SEP really understands human psychology, children, the movie industry, the South, etc. Speaking of human psychology, how the characters, even the subsidiary ones like Gordon and Chantal, changed over time was very moving. Look at Gordon! He was able to create good art when he stood on his own. There's something about doing physical work in order to get to the mental things.
In short, it was a treat to read such a moving and deep piece of literature, and I sincerely hope that there were more of them. Books like this raise the standard of the romance genre.
