Blog Tour / Book Musings - Eye Candy by Jessica Lemmon


Welcome to the blog tour of Eye Candy by Jessica Lemmon. I am reviewing it today on my blog.

Eye Candy
Real Love #1
By: Jessica Lemmon
Releasing July 25, 2017


Don’t trust lust at first sight. One woman chooses reality over fantasy in this friends-to-lovers romance.

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.

My Musings :

Okay Okay I am shallow! There I admitted it. When I read the blurb I was totally intrigued by the mysterious runner concept and the friends-to-lovers theme was just a passing interest. Gasp! Those who know me know that I adore that theme. So colour me surprised that Vince made me change my mind fast!

The book cover is obviously Vince. Seriously, no was is that JT. After getting to know JT, I was not impressed. But Vince totally stole my heart. He is obviously heart stealing handsome with his tattoos. I personally like tattoos! And the way he deals with Jackie melted my heart. But, yeah there is a but in there, I didn't like his vacillating between being serious or casual about Jackie. That was a big off for me. As for Jackie, she is such a sweet lady. She is shy and sexy in turns. She is the perfect pair for Vince. They complement each other perfectly!

The romance was hot, hot as in my fanning my face and sweet in certain places making me going "awww" which I really hate. Seriously I am not such a girly person but this pair warranted it, no question asked! The book was a fast read and I had fun with their foray into lovership from friendship. The way they deal with each other and the past had me interested till the end. Thank heavens there is no too much angst about their past. This is a first for me, the case being both the protagonists being divorced. I like the theme so I might check out others in this line.

I am looking forward to Davis' story now. I believe that will be a top tale! For people who like happy endings with a heat factor, this is for you! Join me in the family of this book lovers!

I received a copy for reviewing purposes which doesn't impact my thoughts on the book in any way.

My one line review : A sweet and hot romance with a second chance at love.

My rating : 4/5

My reread factor : 3/5
