Dax: After spending the summer buried up to my eyeballs in my family’s affairs, I’m ready for a break. The kind of break where I can spend two solid weeks camping and fishing in the company of absolutely no one. Then I find myself directly in the path of a drop-dead gorgeous tornado by the name of Becca Stone. Who can resist a night with a damsel in distress? Especially when she happens to be a leggy blonde? The last thing I expect is for Becca to show up on my cabin doorstep the next night, shivering in the rain and ready for seconds.
Becca: One minute I’m admiring the rock-hard jaw of the Magic Mike lookalike who walks into my bar, and the next I’m getting fired by my own brother. Loudly. In front of everyone. Luckily Dax Vaughn is a gentleman who aims his white-hot smile at me. Oh, it’s on. Wham, bam, thank you ma’am. Then a torrential storm washes out the main road and causes a massive power outage, giving us two whole weeks to enjoy each other’s company. At which point Dax will go back home, leaving “us” in the rearview mirror. That’s the plan. Or it was . . . until I started falling for him.

After reading the first two books in this series I didn’t know what to expect from Man Candy. I ended up not liking Eye Candy that much but Arm Candy was so much better… you can see why I had no idea what to expect from the third book. To be honest, MAn Candy end up being in between those two books. I didn’t hate it but I also didn’t love it. However, I was in a weird reading funk when I read this book so my reading experience was a bit influenced. It’s not normal for me to take 10 days to read a romance… not normal at all.
Once again, and just like the previous books, I really enjoyed the writing. I loved how distinct Dax and Becca’s voices were and while it took me a long time to finish this book I still think it was an easy read. As I said before, stupid reading funk ruined this book for me.
I also enjoyed the characters. I did have a few problems with them, especially Becca, and in my opinion their relationship was way too fast but I have to admit that they had an amazing development. I would just like to see Becca stand up for herself a little bit. It also wouldn’t hurt if Dax and Becca’s relationship was a little bit slower. There were a few things that could have happened a little bit later (I’m looking at you thing that happened in the epilogue=.
Overall, I had a few problems with this book but it was still an enjoyable read. While it was quite slow for me I still think it could be a fast paced book for everyone else.
Have you read this book? If so, what did you think about it? If you haven’t read it would you read it?
