Description: Don’t trust lust at first sight. One woman chooses reality over fantasy in this friends-to-lovers romance, a steamy standalone by “an author to keep your eye on” (Katee Robert).
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.
I actually loved Eye Candy!!! I went into this one thinking it would be come kind of trite insta-love, tug-of-war situation, but I was pleasantly surprised to see that it was anything but. Friends-to-romance is one of my favorite tropes … and this was no exception! Jackie and Vince were a fun duo who knew how to have fun together and bolster each other in the best kind of ways.
As ever, Loveswept, an imprint of Random House Publishing, continues to stand strong, not as a curator of overdone and tripe love affairs, but of light-hearted and fun romances that will certainly keep you entertained, and help you forget that stack of bills – if only for a few hours.
This is the kind of novel you devour while sun bathing. On a lake, in the sand, hammock-ing, or sitting in a chair in the middle of your backyard – this book will keep you occupied, warm and is certainly one I would recommend you one-click immediately.
