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.

the book was okay, just not quite what I thought it would be. Maybe because this is the first book i've read by this author i just haven't picked up on her way of writing.

I have not read all of SEP's books, but Honey Moon is my favourite so far. In fact, I think that it just might be my favourite romance book ever...and I've read a lot of them!
The main attraction is the characters. They are wounded, flawed and inescapably human. I found them utterly believable- even if their situations were anything but! My family has foster kids, and trust me, SEP characterizations of adults dealing with childhood abandonment issues is dead on. And while Romance is a genre synononmous with escapism, I think this book effectively combines both real life problems, with the fairytale quality that SEP is known for. It's not enough for these characters to find love. They need redemption too.
Boy, do we have to work hard for that happy ending...but I found it all the sweeter for the effort.

4.0 out of 5 stars Out of the Ordinary July 7 2004

If you've read too many formulatic romance novels, this is a wonderful example of a writer who is not limited by genre. The characters are well written, and it displays life as true to form: messy sometimes, unpredicatable and occasionally devestating. Most women will be able to sympathize with Honey's acting out and teenage confusion. I would recommend this book to anyone tired of your typical bodice-ripping romance.

3.0 out of 5 stars A mixed review April 24 2004
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I give the first half of the book, Honey and Dash's story, 4 stars. It is very well written, and we get a great deal of insight on the characters. SEP makes it easy to see why these two people fall in love despite their age differences, and I was happy for them. The second half of the book, Honey and Eric's story, gets only 2 stars from me because it is so rushed and feels forced. SEP has to quickly get two people together who didn't get along years before and have been out of each others' lives for a long time. While the lust they first feel is believeable (and their first sex scene short but hot) the "true love" that quickly follows is not. It feels like the author took the shortest route to a happy ending, but I was left feeling unhappy for this pair. Their foundation doesn't seem firm enough for a lasting relationship. I'll stick to the "Chicago Stars" books from now on. Better to re-read a classic.

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!!

1.0 out of 5 stars Not sure what SEP was thinking March 8 2004
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I did not like this book one bit! It was very depressing. There was a pedophile, Honey Moon's father figure (like 20 years her senior) married her and then eventually died, the other hero lost an eye, honey believed that walt disney was god and there was a "magical" roller coaster that was the most important thing in her life.At the end the pedophile, the one eyed hero and honey lived happily ever after thanks to the magical powers of the roller coaster.
Don't waste your money on it. Buy the Chicago Star series or Lady be good instead!
