What would be your perception of being in a committed relationship if you gave your heart to someone twice to be left mending the broken pieces? Take the risk to find out if the third time’s a charm? Or live carefree seeking male companionship with one type…abusers?
Nothing’s Sweeter than Candy tells the story of how past hurts hinders the heroine from being able to recognize her possible Mr. Right. Candace Brown is a computer geek, who enjoys being in control and having structure in her life. But when her rigid routine is shaken by Brice Coleman, she does the next best thing.
Brice Coleman is the co-owner of a security company and devises a plan to get up close and personal with Candace. One thing I love about his character is his forwardness. What he wants is what he gets by all means necessary. Early on you will get a glimpse of his protectiveness and possessiveness, when he has an encounter with Candace’s former sexual playmate.
One scene I enjoyed was when Candace propositioned Brice; it was unexpected especially coming from her. Honestly, I thought he would have been the initiator, which is why I expected him to refuse. As you come to know Brice’s character you will understand there’s a reason behind his every move, which is a good thing.
It’s a shame Candace’s story didn’t end with ‘she had to meet Mr. Wrong to recognize Mr. Right.’ For her it’s more like ‘Candace had to come face to face with a psychopath to realize she’d walked away from her happy ending.’
If you are looking for a story that’s compelling and erotic, Nothing’s Sweeter than Candy by Lotchie Burton is for you.
