APC PUBLISHER: AVA ALISE RELEASED: OCTOBER 18, 2018 GENRE: CONTEMPORARY ROMANCE LENGTH: FORMAT: EBOOK
Want to know the fastest way to screw up a sacred bond?
Have sex with your sister’s best friend and find out.
I sure did. I know, I know. It was a total dick move. Kelsa—my very vocal sister—never lets me forget that one golden rule. Hooking up with her best friend is a serious no-no.
Too bad I didn’t listen.
See, Renee Espada has always been "bad candy", a term Kelsa and I coined when we were kids. The ultimate temptation. That's exactly what she is. Sweet, innocent, and totally off limits.
Ever since we met, it’s been a battle on my self-control. Then I moved into the apartment she shares with Kelsa. As if I wasn’t struggling enough. I can't help but flirt with her -- it's just who I am -- but this feels like more than some flirtatious crush.
Every time I look down at those pouty lips I force myself not to imagine sucking on them.
A sweet taste.
I remind myself that we're just friends. I shouldn’t visualize grabbing a handful of her wavy hair as I bend that perfect little body over the counter.
Delicious.And I definitely need to stop thinking about how entranced I'd be in those big doe-eyes as she looks up to me, lips wrapped around my…
Just one lick.But what I never expected? Renee would make the first move. Sorry, sis. I tried. FOUR BOUNDLESS STARS
Bad Candy is full of lust, passion. Renee has recently been cheated on, by one of the men she thought that maybe was marriage material. Cam is the hot brother of her best friend, Kelsa. Now I love me a good forbidden romance, and this was enjoyable. But it was missing that urgency to want to finish. Renee and Cam have known each other for years, so it’s easy for them to fall into each other. There’s that rush of it being forbidden. His sister made him promise that he would never go for Renee. But you know promises, sometimes they're meant to be broken. Even though they’ve known each other for years. I was kind of surprised that Renee just jumped in and didn’t make sure he’s been tested. Because based on a previous scene in the book I would be a little worried. But when you’ve been lusting after someone for years, that flies out the window. Their plan for one night of passion doesn’t last too long. It will be interesting to see what happens in part two. Overall, I give this Four Boundless Stars.
