Don't trust lust at first sight. One woman chooses reality over fantasy in this friends-to-lovers romance, a steamy standalone by “an author to keep your eye on” (Katee Robert).
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.

APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
Eye Candy is a bubbly and sizzling rom-com that doesn't shy away from the realities of post-divorce life. Vince Carson and Jacqueline Butler are coworkers who supported each other when their marriages fell apart. Now Jackie’s moving on with the hot guy who jogs past their office daily—and Vince realizes he's fallen for his best friend. We love a good friends-to-lovers romance, and we delighted at Vince wooing Jackie away from her mystery jogger. Vince and Jackie's unwavering support for each other made this romance a sweet, heartfelt treat.
