Eye Candy by Jessica Lemmon is now live!
Don't trust lust at first sight. A "bubbly and sizzling rom-com" with a light love triangle and an absolutely swoon-worthy hero.
Every morning, a gorgeous mystery man jogs by Jacqueline Butler's office window, tempting her to break her "no dating" rule. She's good with ogling him from afar, but her best friend-slash-colleague Vince Carson suggests she do more than stare--he wants her to ask the runner out.
Vince knows his best friend Jackie better than she knows herself, and the last thing she needs is a date with a pompous, swole jackass. But after being friend-zoned big-time, Vince can't exactly ask her out himself. Encouraging her to pursue a guy who is all muscle and no substance will not only get Jackie off the bench, but will also open her eyes to the fact that Vince is the right man for her.
Vince takes Jackie on practice dates, promising to help her hone her skills, but can't resist edging the fake romance into reality. After a ridiculously epic kiss, Jackie sees a sexier side of Vince, and suddenly anything is possible...

3.5 stars - Worth a Reader's Time
Review Copy Provided by Author
This was a cute story where each of the main characters get a second chance at Love.
Jackie and Vince are coworkers whose friendship carries over into their off hours. She was his hand to hold as he got over his divorce, but nothing more until...
Enter the hot guy who runs by her office everyday....
what happened next led to some cringe- worthy moments for me (and is a big reason this isn't a full 4 star read-it's personal preference, but I think it could have been handled differently)
The appearance of running guy and the fallout leads to Vince and Jackie finally acting on their feelings. The story that follows is sometimes sweet, sometimes sad, and sometimes frustrating as they both have to face demons and insecurities from their prior marriages to get where they are going.
The overall secondary cast is pretty small, but we spend a lot of time with Vince's friend, Davis, so I would expect to see him featured soon.
Overall, a good read - maybe not one of Ms. Lemmon's strongest, but definitely worth the time.
