Publisher's Summary

When I rode my bike into Aster Valley, it was supposed to be temporary. A quick, relaxing visit with friends. No entanglements. Zero drama.

But then I saw the bumblebee being harassed on the side of the highway.

More specifically, I saw Truman Sweet, Aster Valley’s resident botanist, spice merchant, and bee-costume enthusiast, being harassed. And the second I got involved, all my plans for a quick departure scattered like pollen on the breeze.

It turns out that Truman - adorkably shy, relentlessly sunshiny, hot as all heck, reluctantly-still-a-virgin Truman - has secrets. Secrets someone in this charming small town doesn’t want brought to light. Secrets that rouse every one of my protective instincts just as surely as his kisses rouse...other parts of me.

LOVE SO MUCH

So awesome!!! Love so much. Didn't think any book could rival Wilde Love on my favourites list, but this one comes so close. The friendships were my favourite part. This book got so many strong emotions out of me. I laughed so much. I wanted to hug so many of the awesome characters. I wanted to strangle Barnie so bad I punched my pillow!! You know it's a good book if it gets that kind of emotional reaction. LOVE

I can't wait for the next one in this amazing series!!!

Lucy Lennox Gold

I was sucked in from the very beginning. The first scene when Truman and Sam meet melted my heart and cry with laughter. I could see the bee suit in my head. I loved getting Truman's story and Sam was a teddy bear with scruff.

I loved the conclusion to Truman's trouble even if I did predict who done it about half way through.

June can't come fast enough I need more aster valley after that epilogue. Hot as Heller is going to laugh of loud amazing if that first confrontation is anything to go by.

Another hit

This is another great story with a great narration. It is one of those books that you want to hurry up and get to the end while also not wanting it to end. I love the characters, the story and the town.

So sweet, so steamy! So worth the listen!!

If you weren't already in love with Water Valley and its lovable citizens you will be after this listen. Lucy has an amazing ability to write characters that you just wish were real so you could be there best friends. Then on top of that she adds in extra steamy scenes that make you drool while daydreaming of having that hotness in your own life. Michael dean as always makes these characters come even more alive with the perfect voices for each character adding another level to how adorable this story Is. I cannot wait for the next book in the series because I am already attached to all the citizens of Aster Valley.

Eh.....

I get it’s fiction - but it seems like it is supposed be a real world - modern times kind of setting. As such, Truman as a character and the whole situation was wholly unbelievable. A 5 year old living in a 24 year old body was how he was portrayed. I’m not a fan of age play romances and would have avoided this had it been described as such. I don’t think it actually is age play but Truman’s character behaved as close to a “little” as you can get without officially going down that path - and that’s just not for me.

Oh so good

I made the mistake of starting this book late at night, because I finished it as the sun came up. It was so good and had so much going on in it that I couldn't put it down. As with all of Lucy's work I highly recommend this book to everyone. Little Truman will steal your heart when you first meet him in his little bumblebee costume and hot hunky Sam will knock down all thoughts about not finishing this book. These two are just adorable together ❤.

Aster Vally is awesome!

Truman is such a sweet man if not a puss over in the beginning. But you keep cheering him on and he finds his way eventually! Sam is so good for him and doesn’t baby him like others want to do. It is a great 2nd book and I can’t wait for more!!!

The narration was wonderful, the story was eh

I'm disappointed with how passive the mcs were in this story. Truman for being a doormat and Sam for going along. The sex scenes were great though. And this is the second time we get an ending that is the beginning of the next book and not an epilogue of the story we just read. Why is this being done? It's annoying and really doesn't make me want to read the next one.

The narrator was the only reason why I listened to the end of the book.

Fun and exciting!

After enjoying Right as Raine, I was excited to give this book a listen. I actually ended up enjoying it even more. Again, the narration was very well done, and the mix of mystery into the story made it that much more exciting. Though I spent much time groaning over the portrayal of certain characters, all was righted on that front in the end. Looking forward to the next in the series!

I’m so in love

I didn’t think I could love another book in this series as much as I did the last one but I was wrong.

Hands down Truman is my favorite MM character ever. If you don’t instantly fall in love with him I’ll eat my shoe.

After all the books that this author has written it still amazes me how she can suck me in with a story but she does every time.

Michael Dean does phenomenal again in narration. Can’t imagine him not narrating a Lucy Lennox book at this point!

Well Done Lucy Lennox!👏


Another great instalment in the Aster Valley Series.

Truman, Sam and Pym have to be my favourite characters so far in this series, although, I have a feeling the new sheriff may wheedle his way in if the ending is anything to go by 😉😉

Really looking forward to hearing the next audiobook in the series 😁

Michael Dean doesn’t disappoint as usual with that gorgeous voice of his ❤️❤️🥰😁

5⭐️’s all the way!!
