Last call! At the end of the night, a clean-cut hunk and a rebellious bartender act on their unlikely chemistry in this frisky standalone novel from the author of Eye Candy.
Davis: I’ve had my eye on Grace Buchanan for a while now. Unlike the bubbly blondes I usually date, the feisty, flame-haired bartender both intrigues and bewilders me. Something about Grace—the tattoos? the nose ring?—makes every part of me sit up and beg. There’s only one problem: She hates me. Trading insults and one-liners has become our M.O. But when Grace bets me that I can’t get a date with a non-blonde if my life depends on it, I’m determined to prove her wrong by landing the ultimate non-blonde: her.
Grace: I’m used to regulars hitting on me, and I’ve turned them all down, except for one: Davis Price. I like giving him a hard time, and he’s kind of cute in his suit and tie—if you’re into that kind of thing. Anyway, I don’t care how many blondes he takes home . . . until one of them sidles up to him in my bar. Nuh-uh. But after my little bet with Davis backfires, our first date lands us in the sack. So does the second. And the third. Neither of us wants more than the best sex of our lives. The trouble is, it’s not a question of what I want. It’s what I need. And what I need is Davis.
Arm Candy was a fun, sexy, light-hearted romantic comedy, and one of my favorite Jessica Lemmon novels to date! I loved her writing style and the storyline and characters she created. Ms. Lemmon is an incredibly talented contemporary romance author, and I always look forward to reading her books. Arm Candy was magnificent and completely exceeded my expectations.
Davis and Grace were wonderful characters and I absolutely loved them and their story. Davis and Grace were both inherently good and decent people, and I felt an instant connection with them. Their personalities were amazing and I thought they were a perfect match for each other in every possible way. I loved how their relationship and story progressed, and I loved reading it from both Davis and Grace’s POV. Their chemistry was sizzling hot and the banter between them was nothing short of delightful and entertaining. I loved all of their interactions with each other, and I honestly couldn’t get enough of them and their story. I loved that there wasn’t tons of drama and thankfully the conflict between Davis and Grace didn’t last terribly long. I hate when a story has tons of unnecessary angst and drama, and I was relieved that Arm Candy wasn’t like that at all. I also really loved the secondary characters and I enjoyed seeing a few familiar faces from Eye Candy, the first book in the Real Love series, as well as several new ones. I loved reading every single page of this book from beginning to end, and I was extremely happy with the conclusion to Davis and Grace’s story.
Arm Candy was a phenomenal romantic comedy from Jessica Lemmon, and I was very pleased with the outcome to Davis and Grace’s story. Ms. Lemmon is a brilliant author and if you haven’t read any of her books yet, I highly suggest you go do so ASAP. All of her novels are wonderful and addicting, and I am very much looking forward to reading Man Candy, the third and final romantic comedy in the Real Love series!
