Julia Kaye spends her days decorating cakes and daydreaming about finding Mr. Right.  She’s tried it all—fix ups, speed dating, online profiles and even a popular phone app, all with no success.  She’s sure her dream man is out there, but she’s done trying to find him herself.  She figure's when it’s meant to be; fate will find a way.

Ryan Walters is a workaholic who’s not looking for Mrs. Right.  He’s not even looking for Mrs. Right Now.  Instead, he spends his days focused on what he cares about most— amassing a fortune.  Aside from his sister and her children, Ryan has no time for entanglements of any kind.

What happens when one confirmed bachelor meets the sweetest girl in the world?

Happily ever after, of course!

    My stomach was full of butterflies as he opened the car door and helped me into the passenger seat. I grinned after he closed the door and I watched him walk around to the driver’s side. I’d been on thirty-seven horrible dates during my fruitless search for Mr. Right, and never once had any of the men opened the car door for me.
I breathed in deep as he slid into his seat and closed the door. The scent of him was just as sensual as I’d thought it was the night before. Being so close together in the car felt intimate, especially when he turned toward me so he could lay the box of chocolates down on the back seat. His gaze held mine as he did it, the air thick with tension as we stared at each other.
Arousal pulsed hot in my veins as countless seconds passed. I sighed when he cupped his hands on either side of my face and held me in place as he leaned into me. When his lips covered mine, everything suddenly made sense. I knew everything in my life up until that moment had been leading me to Ryan.
   He expelled a guttural sound when my lips parted and our tongues touched for the first time. I leaned across the console toward him, anxious to be closer. Never in my life had I been so affected by a kiss. I was a romantic at heart and my dreams were big, but kissing Ryan was more than I’d ever hoped for, mostly because I hadn’t known anything like it was possible. It was too much while also being not nearly enough. His tongue caressed mine slowly as he explored me passionately. He tasted like rice crispy treats, cake, and something else indefinable that was just him.

   The console between us jabbed into my side as I slid my arms around his back and held on as the kiss continued. Kissing Ryan was the equivalent of finding an oasis in the desert. It was everything that was right in the world and I never wanted to stop. It was addictive, and I loved it. The entire time we kissed, Ryan cupped my face in a way that made me feel desired and treasured all at the same time. We kept up like that until there was a knock on the window.

   When we pulled apart, I turned and found Gina standing next to the car. I giggled nervously as I pressed the control to roll down the window.     

   “Did I forget something?” I squeaked.

   She laughed and shook her head. “No, I just needed to break it up before your audience came back.”

My Review:

In this day of over-the-top Fantasies and Alpha boardroom billionaires, it was such a breath of sweet, sweet air to take a little time and read Evie Harrison’s SWEET LIKE CANDY. 

Hello insta-love when an uber busy businessman drops by a bakery to pick up a cake and discovers something he’d like that’s sweet but sure not made of sugar and flour.  And once Ryan and Julia have met, the real fun begins.  Together they were a pair that was oh so sexy and I loved that I didn’t have to try and discern if they had any ulterior motives or there was some underlying story or anything.  It was just straightforward smutty fun!

Now I wouldn’t want all my books to be like this but there is absolutely a niche for yummy books like Evie’s.  Think of it as a palate cleanser for your book lovin’ mind. So if you can handle a sickeningly sweet, light hearted smutty read, SWEET LIKE CANDY dishes up a big ol’ serving that’s just right.

*****5 Stars*****
