Man Candy (Jessica Lemmon)

Dax: After spending the summer buried up to my eyeballs in my family’s affairs, I’m ready for a break. The kind of break where I can spend two solid weeks camping and fishing in the company of absolutely no one. Then I find myself directly in the path of a drop-dead gorgeous tornado by the name of Becca Stone. Who can resist a night with a damsel in distress? Especially when she happens to be a leggy blonde? The last thing I expect is for Becca to show up on my cabin doorstep the next night, shivering in the rain and ready for seconds.

Becca: One minute I’m admiring the rock-hard jaw of the Magic Mike lookalike who walks into my bar, and the next I’m getting fired by my own brother. Loudly. In front of everyone. Luckily Dax Vaughn is a gentleman who aims his white-hot smile at me. Oh, it’s on. Wham, bam, thank you ma’am. Then a torrential storm washes out the main road and causes a massive power outage, giving us two whole weeks to enjoy each other’s company. At which point Dax will go back home, leaving “us” in the rearview mirror. That’s the plan. Or it was . . . until I started falling for him.


I kind of liked the first book on this series, Eye Candy, and I really really liked the second, Arm Candy, but this one? This one I loved.

THE POSITIVE:

 The writing. This was my favorite in terms of writing too. I loved Dax and Becca’s voices. The book is told in dual POV, and their voices complement each other amazingly.

 I loved both Becca and Dax. They’re such great characters. I loved that Becca was kind of lost, and so was Dax, but they had amazing chemistry, and they accepted each other completely. I loved it.

 The plot (and the romance) and the pace. The pace was fast, in terms of writing, and the romance too, but somehow it didn’t feel rushed to me. The two take their time, and I really enjoyed the personal development, as well as the development of their relationship.

THE NEGATIVE:

 I wanted to see a bit more of the gang.

 I wish the epilogue had been a little further away in time. Just because… (talk to me if you’ve read it).
