    Hot and sexy!

    Hooked from page 1!! Kandi and Huxley have chemistry but Kandi is fighting it after her world was torn apart. She’s not in the mood to get involved again. This isn’t an easy relationship , one with twists and turns and you’re so invested! Keeps you turning the pages for sure!

    Not as sweet as candy but as compelling!

    I don't often let a cover sway me but I really like this cover and then after reading the story summary I was instantly intrigued. The title alone reminded me of a board game and to a degree this is true of this book: characters, properties, community, money, losers and winners. Having five years with the one you love is a fantastic achievement, not enough time but then you don't always get a say. For Kandi Leo she basically has no alternative but to move on until she ends up at a town called Candy where she decides to settle. Huxley Cross owns most of the businesses and is intrigued by her from the start. As Kandi says herself Huxley consumes her and he does but I have to admit he annoyed me so many times and I really enjoyed when Kandi basically told him to take a hike! Both lead characters tell the story, giving their points of view and readers some insight into the what makes them tick as Huxley is quite the mysterious man. This is a fast paced story and very easy to read, the plot is substantial and has some turns that keep readers on their toes. There are some emotional highs and lows, as you would expect, but truly this author really knows how to take this to the next level. The one thing I can say to really sum this book up is that I couldn't wait to read each new sentence, almost like a craving.

    A luxurious read

    TL Smith’s characters don’t live in the mainstream. They’re found in the margins, in the shadows and in little niche pockets of oddity all over the place. Kandi and Huxley are two such characters. Kandi is a wanderer, travelling with her husband Jarod initially, and now on her own after his untimely exit. She ends up at a town bearing a similar name, a town called Candy. Huxley owns Candy. Owns most of the businesses, the properties and employs most of its residents. He’s impossible to avoid. It’s inevitable that Kandi ends up working for him. But what she didn’t anticipate was feeling something for the first time since Jarod. What Huxley didn’t anticipate was feeling something for the first time, ever. The two of them are inexorably drawn to each other; despite their best efforts. As is inevitable in TL Smith’s universe, twists and turns bombard the pair as they struggle to put a name to their relationship. Is it sex? Is it love? Can they last? This book is a luxurious read, something to be savoured and enjoyed. The characters are perfectly imperfect, the storyline gripping and the whole thing will have you in it’s thrall. I didn’t feel the same edginess that I did when reading her other books. I don’t know whether that means that she’s getting lighter or, in fact, I’m getting darker. I suspect it may be the latter. And I’m good with that.

    loved it

    He doesn't do relationship and surely isn't interested in love. Never gonna happen no way no how then oh yeah then he got a taste of Kandi. She's recovering from a broken heart, a widow looking for a new lace to be. A place she and her husband had agreed would be their next place. She has no idea what she's walked into. She had no idea who he was. She had no idea. Lies, deceit, what's real and what's not is all twisted up around him. But he doesn't do love. She's screwed. Not all insta love is bad and this is the proof in the pudding. They are hot and passionate, scarred and broken. It can't work. It has no chance. They are doomed. She is everything he never knew he wanted and this story proves it. This author takes you in and draws you into their story and makes you apart of it, You can't escape

    From the prologue I was invested in Kandi...

    4.5 Kandi-coated Stars Review by Amy W. Late Night Reviewer Up All Night w/ Books Blog "My Huxley jar's going to need a lot of money" Kandi isn't the only one with a Huxley jar after reading Kandiland. I recently discovered and fell in love with T.L. Smith with her last few releases. While Kandiland isn't dark, there are a few twists and Huxley is every bit the broken bad boy. "Don't fall for me, Kandiland. I'll only break you." In the small town of Candy, Huxley is King. He gets what he wants and when Kandi moves to town he sets his sights on her. Too bad for him Kandi had a tragic past and doesn't want or need a man in her life. "What's a lie, really? One's version of the truth. Or another's." Lies, lies, lies. This whole story revolves around lies. From the prologue I was invested in Kandi and her story. I mean that was a pretty intense way to start off, but I expect nothing less from Ms. Smith. This was not as dark as her previous few, but it had some of those elements that I love, just in a lighter tone. I figured out one bit of the story pretty earlier on, but there was a certain thing that happens that I totally wasn't prepared for. I thought for sure that it wouldn't actually. And usually I love being wrong, but not this time. I love that it was the catalyst for the HEA but man, I wasn't ready for it. I truly loved this story and I wish that it had taken that darker path that was so easily within reach. Even without being dark and extremely twisty, this lighter story is just as captivating.
