Jessica Lemmon - Eye Candy review

I was so excited to dive into this book from Jessica Lemmon. If it has her name on it, I know it's going to be good! This is a new series from her.  And whew, boy! What a start.  This book was so fun and easy to get lost in. It hooked me right away and I was taken by Jacqueline and Vince.  They had built up an easy friendship and because of their dating/marriage situations upon first meeting, that's all it ever was.  So they had a solid foundation behind them when things started to shift.  And it was one that was so delicious and utterly sweet that I found myself swooning many times through this read.  THE FEELS were real, ya'll! This book moved (too) quickly for me as I wanted to stay immersed in their world.  If you need a fun, sweet and sassy friends to lovers read, GRAB THIS BOOK! It's soooo good! Looking forward to future books in this series!

**ARC provided by NetGalley for my honest review**

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.
