Man Candy, A Real Love Novel, Jessica Lemmon
Genre: Humour, romance
A quick fun read this, packed with some terrific humour.
I adored Dax, a real Gentleman in every sense. He was incredibly patient with Becca, when she was so changeable it was hard to keep up. I loved the way he ran his businesses, trusted his friends, made his life and lifestyle sync seamlessly. He’s on a short break, and the weather is – well, frankly, just dire. Does he moan, complain, whinge about how unfair it is? Nope, just gets on with what he can in his own steady way.
Becca annoyed me a bit, well, quite a lot actually.
We first meet her when she’s late for work. Work at a job her brother has given her, the same brother that’s letting her life with his family as she has nowhere else. You’d think she’d make the effort to at least be on time, but it seems lateness and Becca run hand in hand. So yes, she did get the work done, she was good at what she did but – he’s running a business, and she should respect that. Seems for her its always somebody else’ fault.
I didn’t really understand why she was so hot-cold-hot with Dax either, she doesn’t know what he wants, but she doesn’t know what she wants either, and the poor guy is supposed to just guess?
Still, there were some seriously sensual scenes between them and some fantastic humour which kept the novel up for me.
Stars: three and a half, a fun read, but not a re-reader for me.
