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.
I do love a friend’s to lovers story and Jackie and Vince’s story had me very excited. Although I’m not a huge fan of stories written in the first person I dove into Eye Candy and found the story engaging.
Both Jackie and Vince have had marriages that ended badly and are wary of dating again. But poor Vince has a thing for Jackie who never dates, but suddenly finds herself drooling over a hot bodied runner. At the beginning I was enjoying the story with Jackie being totally oblivious and Vince’s growing jealousy. It was cute and fun. And their chemistry was so hot you knew they would burn the sheets up when the time came.
My biggest problem with the actual story was just how much time both the hero and the heroine thinking about their exes. Comparing people to their exes. In general I thought they spent WAY too much time thinking about relationships that ended badly. A long time ago. I mean, you have a great person right here in front of you, who wants you and you only you. But you’re thinking about someone who didn’t want you. What??
That kind of hindered my enjoyment of the story but overall it was well written, engaging and hot.
This story is a great chance to get lost in a fun story.
