Review: Candy Kisses

Candy Kisses
By Honey Jans

Candy Warner comes home after a triple whammy of disasters, she’s lost her job and her fiancée, and had her condo broken into all within a matter of weeks. Now she’s come up with a plan to reinvent herself. The first item on her to do list is to find the perfect lover. As a former personnel director, she’s already decided on his qualifications; he has to be young and trainable, let her take the lead, and most importantly he has to be able to make her come.

Her well-laid plans go awry when the police suspect her of breaking into the cabin she’s rented for the summer. Tackled, and lying under a very male body, if his erection is anything to go by, she gazes up at Mitch Hammond and wants to die. If there was anyone she didn’t want to see or be felt up by, it was the stud she’d thrown herself at ten years ago. He doesn’t even meet her qualifications. He’s too old, too bossy, and way too Alpha Male.

Detective Mitch Hammond is amused to find that the burglar he’s tackled is sexy Candy Warner. His body throbs against her soft curves and he knows that he has to have her. When he finds out about her quest to find a lover, and learns that he won’t fit the bill, he’s annoyed. He bends to kiss her, proving that he fits at least one of her qualifications; he can make her come. But can he keep her safe from the burglars who’ve been plaguing the area? Will Mitch be able to convince Candy that he’s the man for the job? To find out read Candy Kisses.

If you are looking for a story with an incredible amount of heat, sexual adventures, and passion within the framework of a light mystery, then Candy Kisses will fit the bill.

Candy has had it with being proper and efficient and frigid. She is going to take back her life and she has a plan. She is going to live and live hot and that means she’s looking to break her frigid label. As with all plans, Murphy’s Law has something to say about that and he slams her hard with Mr. Hunk…sorry, Mr. Hammond, Detective. Candy’s character was a fine balance between independent, self-sufficient and girly-girl. The journey she takes discovering just how NOT frigid she is can only occur with a man who can make her zing.

Enter the zing-man, Mitch Hammond. I have to wonder how he got to know so much about …things. He’s the town bad boy gone straight. He is the ultimate alpha man. Really, Ms. Jans painted him with dominate and commanding impulses and when he’s around Candy, brings out the caveman, the protector, and the sex maniac. Don’t get the wrong impression, he’s not smothering by any means. You see, Candy is not a weak woman and when she shows her strengths, it ratchets up Mitch’s attraction to her a hundred degrees. And my eyebrows got singed from reading some of their exploits.

For meat in this story, there is a criminal element haunting Candy. She is so sure the strange things going on have nothing to do with her. Mitch, being the hunky protector and all, has another theory.

There is a smarmy villain. Also, there is another idiot from Candy’s past which I found pretty funny, especially when the past came up and bit the guy in the tukas. It was a nice touch of deja vu. You’ll love Candy’s sass – I did.

All in all, Candy Kisses is a very hot read with many erotic elements to explore. The conflict and plot serve to bring them together and provide moments for each to show off to the other. Also, through their exploring, Candy and Mitch learn some things about themselves they didn’t know before. Many times the dialogue embraced sublime eroticsm which thrilled me. I love a good dialogue line and Mitch has some great ones. I’d recommend this book if you enjoy a hearty dose of eroticism spicing up the romantic dance of falling in love.
