[Virtual Tour] Eye Candy by Jessica Lemmon #Review #Giveaway

Don’t trust lust at first sight. 

Real Love #1
Jessica Lemmon
Releasing July 25th, 2017

Don’t trust lust at first sight. One woman chooses reality over fantasy in this friends-to-lovers romance. 

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.

A former job-hopper, Jessica Lemmon resides in Ohio with her husband and rescue dog. She holds a degree in graphic design currently gathering dust in an impressive frame. When she’s not writing super-sexy heroes, she can be found cooking, drawing, drinking coffee (okay, wine), and eating potato chips. She firmly believes God gifts us with talents for a purpose, and with His help, you can create the life you want.

I'm a sucker for friends-to-lovers story, so I jumped at the chance to review Eye Candy. Not only that, but the whole premise of seeing a sexy jogger, at the same time every day, and to drool over him, touched too close to home. I admit to drooling over passerby, but don't tell my hubby. 

Jessica Lemmon has done it again! She's made me laugh, snort, cry all at the same time. She has such a knack for adding in all those emotions and making you feel a part of the story. The main characters, Jaqueline and Vince are real-life people, who drag me in and I missed them when I finished.

 I love how Jackie is a go-getter, a professional and confident. Vince is also a go-getter, co-VP of the company, and a great friend. What holds their friendship together is that they were both heartbroken by past marriages, and they become best friends, getting through the trials of divorce. What neither of them expected, or maybe they did, was the need to become more than friends. Once Jackie hooks up with mysterious jogger-man, who Vince lovingly calls Jaundice, Vince realizes he does want a woman in his life and the woman he wants is right in front of him. And let me tell you, it gets HOT! **fans self**

Favorite lines:

"Lesson number whatever-we're on," I say, my voice tight with lust. "Lingerie is sexy, but you naked is sexier."

"Always, Butler. Always say the guy's name. Especially when you come."
"Do you prefer Carson? Or Vince?"
"I prefer 'Don't ever stop, Vince' as well as 'I've never seen anything so massive in my life.'" That earns me another rich laugh.

We're friends. We're lovers. And we're together. What more do I need to know?

Eye Candy, without a doubt, deserves a 5 WINK rating! I love to laugh, I love to swear (you know, during those dark moments), I love to read the hot and sexy. Eye Candy makes me want to do all that and more. In fact, so ready to meet Davis, Vince's bestie, in Arm Candy next. I am hooked!
