    You don't want to mess with this Candy!

    Look out everyone, Candy Seaborne is back in town and she's shaking things up! I've experienced Debra Doxer's writing before and so I know she can write a great story. However, I wasn't expecting it to be so mysterious and suspenseful. I loved the mix of young adult and adult themes. It makes sense there'd be a mix because Candy is eighteen and on the cusp of being an adult. I think what makes this book really work is that in essence, there are two different stories set in this one book. You've got Candy trying to re-assimilate with her childhood peers and stay on top of all the mean girls and then you've got Candy's life at home with her father and the secrets he is hiding. Both of them are written really well and when the two parts of Candy's lives collide it really gets interesting. I liked Candy. I understood her fascination and attraction to Jonah. I even understood her need to get revenge on those who did her and those around her wrong. I may have even chuckled at her pranks. I wasn't so sure why she wanted to be like her father given his interesting occupation, but I have a feeling I'll find out more about that in the second book. I think besides the pranks, which I thought were simple but perfect, I liked Candy because I could relate to her. I understood her desire to be close to her father. I understood her need to fit in. I got the fact she was unsettled by her feelings for Jonah especially considering her recent experiences with males in her life. I really appreciated how Debra Doxer included CREST, an auto immune disorder. It's something important to her as she suffers from it, and I really liked how it was addressed and used in the story. From start to end I was caught up in the story. I would've loved for it to be longer, but since this one ended quite abruptly I can't wait to read the next book and see what happens. You've been warned people, there's a doozy of a cliffhanger to match an equally awesome story.

    Revenge is sweet, just like candy...

    “I wish I was the first guy you fell for. Then maybe the shadows in your eyes wouldn’t be there, and when I told you how beautiful you are you’d believe me. You make me want to erase those shadows and chase away the memories that put them there, because every day that you don’t realize how amazing you are is a tragedy in my book.” Review This book made me swoon, tear up, laugh, giggle, snort, frown, gasp, hmm, curse, blink, wonder, think, suspect, tense up, nod, argh, etc. It was one of the loveliest books I came across that Netgalley had the kindness of bestowing me. It certainly wasn't what the blurb implied; some teenage girl in training from her father who is an assassin/spy/secret-agent, who falls for a guy and likes to take serious revenge on people for wronging her but then discovering there is more to life than just being an assassin/spy/secret-agent. No. It's about a fairly normal girl, Candace Seaborne, who takes revenge every now and then for fun. She is smart, funny, ruthless yet loving. She is a girl who knows what she wants; and that is to become like her father (who vehemently protests this notion) and finally have a normal family and home...without any romantic attachments (her ex-cheated on her). This book just kept getting better and better. It starts pretty slow, but rises in tension and drama until...CLIFFHANGER!!! I know, I should have expected this since it is clearly said in the blurb that this is part one or a two part story but JEEZ! Why such a cliffhanger, Ms Doxer? Candy's relationships are very real with her fellow characters...especially Jonah Bryson. There was lots of emotion flowing between the two and everything seemed distinctly real. There was no telling like some authors do, but lots of showing instead. I believe this is part of what made this book so good. I saw no grammar mistakes and maybe one typo - which I can no longer remember where it was. The sentences were fairly simple and easily to read but properly structured so everything flowed smoothly. It was a genuine pleasure to read. Congratulations to Debra Doxer on another wonderful book that makes you want to re-read it as soon as you put it down! Can't wait for Sweet Liar! Rating Plan 1 star : Strongly did not like the book, writing and plot was bad. Idea of the book was against my liking. 2 star : Didn't like it, didn't find it interesting or gripping. Seemed to drag on to me. 3 star : An average book. Wasn't bad or good. Everything else was well done. Original idea. 4 star : Like a 3 star but has potential to it as a series or the book grew on me as it progressed and certain scenes captured me. I Enjoyed it and read it in one sitting. 5 star : I LOVED IT! I stayed up late until 3 am. Author is a genius, characters, plot, idea, development, EVERYTHING was EXCELLENT. Nothing else can possibly be said except that its 5 STAR!
