Last call! At the end of the night, a clean-cut hunk and a rebellious bartender act on their unlikely chemistry in this frisky standalone novel from the author of Eye Candy.
Davis: I’ve had my eye on Grace Buchanan for a while now. Unlike the bubbly blondes I usually date, the feisty, flame-haired bartender both intrigues and bewilders me. Something about Grace—the tattoos? the nose ring?—makes every part of me sit up and beg. There’s only one problem: She hates me. Trading insults and one-liners has become our M.O. But when Grace bets me that I can’t get a date with a non-blonde if my life depends on it, I’m determined to prove her wrong by landing the ultimate non-blonde: her.
Grace: I’m used to regulars hitting on me, and I’ve turned them all down, except for one: Davis Price. I like giving him a hard time, and he’s kind of cute in his suit and tie—if you’re into that kind of thing. Anyway, I don’t care how many blondes he takes home . . . until one of them sidles up to him in my bar. Nuh-uh. But after my little bet with Davis backfires, our first date lands us in the sack. So does the second. And the third. Neither of us wants more than the best sex of our lives. The trouble is, it’s not a question of what I want. It’s what I need. And what I need is Davis.

Arm Candy is a delightful treat of sweet romance. We find Vince Carson’s buddy Davis Price and the redhead sassy bartender at McGreevy’s Grace Lou Buchanan. The connection between them was spot on and their personalities blend together so well. They also have a lot of similarities, one particularly when it comes to relationships. I’m amused whenever they throw banters at each other. It’s hilarious and sweet. Davis was a great guy. A successful stock analyst whose heart got broken. He’s scared to fall in love again but when he found Grace, it’s a huge step up for him to take a chance. When he loves someone, he gives it all.
What I like the most was Grace. She’s a cool and tough chick. She was once vulnerable but I like she worked on her self-doubt. Thanks to Davis for assuring that he’s the only woman for him. Though the story is cliché, the ending was great. No unnecessary drama and all.
