Dax: After spending months buried up to my eyeballs in my family’s affairs, I’m ready for a break. The kind of break where I can spend two solid weeks camping and fishing in the company of absolutely no one. Then I find myself directly in the path of a drop-dead gorgeous tornado by the name of Becca Stone. Who can resist a night with a damsel in distress? Especially when she happens to be a leggy blonde? The last thing I expect is for Becca to show up on my cabin doorstep the next night, shivering in the rain and ready for seconds.
Becca: One minute I’m admiring the rock-hard jaw of the Magic Mike lookalike who walks into my bar, and the next I’m getting fired by my own brother. Loudly. In front of everyone. Luckily Dax Vaughn is a gentleman who aims his white-hot smile at me. Oh, it’s on. Wham, bam, thank you ma’am. Then a torrential storm washes out the main road and causes a massive power outage, giving us two whole weeks to enjoy each other’s company. At which point Dax will go back home, leaving “us” in the rearview mirror. That’s the plan. Or it was . . . until I started falling for him.
I love the way Jessica Lemmon tells a story. Each book is so very real and every character is someone you would want to know in real life. Man Candy was no different.
Dax and Becca are instantly attracted to each other while they meet at a hotel in the wilderness. Him on vacation, her working there with her family. Dax’s plan of laying low is shot when mother nature decides that these two characters would enjoy enjoy other’s company.
Dax and Becca are fire together, the sex is sultry, their banter is fun. Yet, they both seem to be running from a past that just keeps catching up.
I loved the conflict with family, tension between the two characters and self doubt as it is something we all struggle with in one way or another. Another wonderful book by Jessica Lemmon.
