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.
Thank you Loveswept for providing an ARC in exchange for an honest review
Eye Candy is an enjoyable friends-to-lovers romance but the miscommunication between the lead protagonists was a let down. I wish Vince Carson could have been more honest to Jacqueline Butler about his feelings instead of sending her mixed signals and encouraging her to date the Jogger she ogles. I like Jacqueline except for one part she tries to make Vince jealous. It’s quite immature. I understand the issues they have since they’re both divorced from their partners and both are playing safe to preserve their friendship. If only they talk things out, these minor problems can be resolved earlier. Overall, it’s not a bad start and I’m excited for the next book.
