Jacinto and Cypher are an unlikely couple. When the company Cypher works for set its eyes on Jacinto land it is Cypher’s job to get Jacinto to sell. Jacinto flat out refuses but he does invite Cypher out to see his prairie so that she can see for herself why he won’t sell. Cypher almost immediately understands and a connection between Jacinto and Cypher spark. But Cypher’s boss is not a man to give up just because Cypher tells him to. When Jacinto finds out that the company is still in hot pursuit and his land may be taken he blows up at Cypher. It must be a set up, Cypher is the best at the company…there’s no way she wouldn’t know about the land! Can this tear completely rip apart a new relationship?
The beginning of the book had some repetitive portions where things were not only talked about again, but also altered. An example being at one point it said she put her boots on and laced them up. It said pages later he had. And later referred to that as the moment when they connected. Initially it wasn’t stated this way. These moments happened a couple times during the book. Nonetheless, let me say that I am a reader who when reading will double back if I feel conflicted about something or forgot a part of the book. So if you are not into details as much you may not even notice this. This did not occur later on in the book.
The connection between Jacinto and Cypher was quick and passionate. I enjoyed the book. I really loved Helga the goat as well. I recommend Milk & Honey to those who like romance.
For those of you who enjoyed Buttercream, here’s another delicious story about the “flower children” of the Blakemore clan.
When a massive land development deal brings together high-powered dealmaker Cypher Lawrence and latter day hippie goat herder Jacinto Blakemore the last thing either expects is an explosive attraction that leaves them desperate for more. Cypher has been assigned to broker a contract with Jacinto for the sale of his farm. Despite his laid-back demeanor Jacinto has a will of iron and is determined to hold on to his land against Cypher’s corporation.
Business considerations take a back seat as they discover a love that transcends their differences, and Jacinto’s beloved moonlit prairie is just the balm Cypher’s overextended spirit needs. They fall into a serendipitous relationship, but when corporate intrigue threatens to tear them apart there might not be enough similarities and trust to sustain their love.
