Jessica Lemmon wrote a true romantic comedy with Eye Candy. Sweet and Sexy, fun and witty. A true Summer Read … grab it, go sit by the pool and prepare to be amused. ~ Kitty, Guilty Pleasures
Jacqueline: As an adult woman–and the vice president of a marketing firm–I shouldn’t be waiting by my office window to ogle the mystery man who jogs by every morning at 11:45. Sure, he’s a gorgeous, perfect specimen of the human race, but I can’t bring myself to hit on a total stranger. However, my best friend-slash-colleague Vince Carson thinks I should do more than talk to the guy. In fact, he’s borderline obsessive about “getting me laid.” (His words.) But the more time we spend together, the more it’s clear: The one I’m falling for is Vince.
Vince: Jackie Butler’s got it bad for some pompous, over-pumped A-hole who struts his stuff past her window. That doesn’t bother me. I know she deserves nice things. What does bother me is that she friend-zoned me big-time last year, so I can’t ask her out myself. But what if I set her up with Mr. Steroids? Then, when he breaks her heart, I can swoop in and save her like the nice guy I am. Everything’s going according to plan . . . until we share a ridiculously epic kiss. And suddenly anything is possible.

The banter between Jacqueline and Vince just sets this book apart from other romance novels. It was hysterical watching Vince convince Jacqueline to go after J.T. and get back on the dating band wagon. It was excruciating watching Vince drown his sorrows. But, once bitten, twice shy Jacqueline finally takes Vince’s advice and ends up running right into his arms … just like he planned … when things so south. One hot kiss and his best friend doesn’t know how to now doesn’t know what to think, how to act or what to do with these unexplained feelings. It’s time to reevaluate the plan and set another one into motion. What better way to get Jacqueline back on the horse then telling her that he will practice with her so that she knows what to do when the time comes for her and J.T. to hit the sheets. PERFECT. PLAN. Until it back-fires.
Two divorcees, unrequited love, friends-to-lovers, an office romance and a hot stud. What more can you ask for from a summer romance? How about some hot sex, great repartee, and a cast of characters that will have you laughing, smiling and just enjoying yourself. Jessica Lemmon really knows how to write rom-com. I honestly, truly loved this book and am looking forward to Arm Candy. There was someone named Davis that needs to find his one true love and let go of the past and a woman named Bethany that needs to stop her one-night stands. I am just hoping that Arm Candy or Man Candy brings one or both of them to their own happily ever after.
