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.
Eye Candy was my first read from Jessica Lemmon and I had such a fun time. Before I even get into the actual story, I just have to say that Lemmon made herself a new fan the second she referenced Hart of Dixie. I was already enjoying the book but I was sold at that point!
The banter between Vince and Jacqueline was fun, flirty and down right delicious. Add that to their building sexual tension and I was hooked from the start. Even if you didn’t read the blurb and went in completely blind, you can tell that it would end up with these two in love from the start.
Eye Candy is told in a dual POV that provides us with a lot of color on both of their feeling towards each other. Which I think added a lot to the overall storyline. We get to see where Jacqueline is looking at Vince a bit more and we get to see just how much Vince has been looking at Jacqueline. From the start, I wanted these two together. Sure, this book starts off with Jacqueline ogling that smoking hot man who runs past her window but it involves into so much more.
This is a fun friends to lovers romance that will suck you in from the start and having you laughing, your heart aching for love and you body tingling. It also sets up the next book really well. From the moment we meet Davis, I wanted more. I can’t wait to get my hands on his story.
I’m so glad I got to read this book and I think I’ve found a new author that will keep me coming back for more and more!
