    Contemporary romance

    Man Candy by Jessica Lemmon Real Love #3 Great characters Good story Fun Read When I began reading my first thought was – “Oh no – first person” – but as I read a bit further the flow and story took over and it didn’t bother me at all knowing what Becca and Dax were thinking and feeling as they narrated in present tense. I am still not sure why Becca was so insecure in some ways and yet so very secure in others BUT perhaps that is part of what made her so special and also so attractive to Dax. Now Dax…what a hunk and a half he was! Talk about a book boyfriend that was worth every line he appeared on and the ones that had me thinking about him while he was not explicitly in the picture! Man Candy indeed! I have not read any other books by this author but after reading this one am more than a little interested in finding out what happened in books one and two of this series and will keep my eyes open for other titles she has written or will write in the future. Thank you to NetGalley and Random House-Loveswept for the ARC – This is my honest review. 4.5 Stars

    Loved it!

    Loved this one. Sexy, fun, lighthearted. This one doesn't pile on the angst. Just one guy looking for a little time to decompress and one woman trying to do her best and figure out her life. Sometimes though a girl just needs to have a little fun and who better to have fun with than a short timer who will be outta here in two weeks. What was suppose to be one night turns into a passionate weekend thanks to a crazy storm then the weekend turns into two fun filled weeks. That should have been the end of it but sometimes plans don't work out quite like they are suppose to. I highly recommend this one.

    Loved it!

    I enjoy Jessica Lemmon's books. She has a knack for writing relationships and scenarios that are believable and have you invested in them from start to finish. Man Candy is a great example of that. It's hot, steamy and was fun to read. I got Becca right from the start. I liked her. She was fun and someone I could see myself hanging out with and someone I would support and go to bat for. I loved her reaction to Dax, that immediate pull. I was rooting for her throughout the book. Dax wasn't someone new to me as I've read the other books in this series. However, if you haven't read Jessica Lemmon before (why haven't you??) this is a great book to start with. What I loved most about Dax was how he pushed Becca and his confidence in her. It was really a side to him I didn't fully expect. These two have sparks flying from the start. It was fun to watch how they progressed together. The sex was hot and steamy, but there was more to them and they certainly weren't expecting that from each other. I loved the growth of their relationship-and the ending was sweet. Jessica Lemmon's writing just flows. The pacing works and the story is spun so that it seems new and fresh. I believed how this story played out. Again, this is the third book in this series bu tit can absolutely be enjoyed as a standalone. I read this book in one sitting simply because I didn't want to put it down. I enjoyed this book and highly recommend it.

    Yummy

    4.5 Stars Forced proximity books are fun. The idea that 2 people who would not have been attracted to one another (or who would have been possibly attracted but not acted on it) are put into a situation where they are not able to ignore one another, well, this appeals to me. Dax and Becca are attracted to one another. He is a guest at the wilderness retreat hotel where Becca works. He is supposed to be in one of the cabins that is far away, and is planning to be camping...so they should not have any time with one another. But, life (and nature) intervene and we get a really hot romance. I love the characters Jessica Lemmon writes. How real and compelling they are, and how much they seem like the kind of people you would want to know. This makes them easy to read about, and makes them characters it is easy to invest in. And, how fun this is. The romance is hot, the sex is steamy, the characters are at time funny and charming. Becca's brother is frustrating, her family bond interesting, her relationship with her coworkers adds depth without overshadowing the Dax and Becca romance. This book is a part of the "Real Love" series...and that is how it feels. You think they will be ok, that they will work out in the long run. And, this is hard. You need tension and conflict in order for the story to be interesting. Too much tension and you doubt that you are reading about a couple who is in it for the long haul...not enough, and you feel like you are reading about 2 characters who are not invested in the relationship. The balance in this title is excellent and the story is enjoyable. I recommend this book.

    dissapointed

    When Dax was mentioned in the previous book I must say I was intrigued to see what will happen to him and was expected some great story. Anddd I was completely disappointed. All there is to the story is sex (which BTW is hot and well written), some cooking and talking between Dax and Becca. In all the conversations they have we discover just glimpse of Becca a lot of question remained unanswered and a little bit more than a glimpse of Dax. I miss the quality of the story and something that blows me away while reading and this book did not deliver. Where is the humor side in this book I don't remember that I smiled, not even once. I volunteered to review an ARC of this book for Netgelly
