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.

EYE CANDY
Jessica Lemmon

Eye Candy by Jessica Lemmon is the first book in her Real Love series. I somehow read book 2, Arm Candy, before this one, but am glad I had the opportunity to read this book as well. Eye Candy is a friends-to-lovers romance with light angst and lots of chemistry.

Jackie Butler is co-Vice President at her marketing firm and after being divorced for several years. She has avoided dating. To her mind, it was not worth it. But a mystery man who jogs by her office every morning has peaked her interest. But she enjoys her fantasies from afar. She is not ready to put her heart on the line again.

Vince Carson is co-Vice President with Jackie and also divorced. They have become the best of friends and supported each other when they needed it most. Once he really noticed the woman Jackie is, she had friend-zoned him. What is a guy to do? Until he believes pushing her out of her comfort zone and into this mystery man’s arm may get her to open up and finally see him. He believes this guy is not for her, but if he can rescue her from him, maybe they have a chance.

If only it were that easy. Both Jackie and Vince had previous relationships that left them badly hurt. As friends they were solid, do they really want to risk what they have for an unknown future? Vince knew he wanted Jackie, but instead of telling her how he felt, he tried to push her to begin dating so he could have a chance with her.

This was a charming story that had me laughing and cheering for this couple. Even with the light moments and the chemistry these two had, there were moments of angst. I liked both of the characters very much and the story line was intriguing. With their history, their journey was not an easy one. But when they were together, they were sexy and sweet.
