When a married businessman falls for a small-town minx, his obsessive love will spur him to give up anything to have her.
Jeff Flanders has a nice little job, a nice little wife, and absolutely nothing to get excited about. All that goes down the drain when he meets Candy, a small-town girl who looks as sweet as her name, but is bitter to the core. She offers him her body - the best he’s ever seen - for the bargain price of $1,000, and he can’t refuse. The affair turns Jeff’s world inside out, and he takes to her like she’s a drug, giving up half his paycheck every week for the privilege of taking Candy to bed.
But when Candy finds a new keeper on Park Avenue, Jeff’s life spins out of control. His addiction to Candy will drive him to do anything to get her back - even kill.

Typical cat lady: lazy, sings off-key, craves spicy bloody marys.
Candy is dated, silly and a great listen featuring classic prose and yesterday's morality. It's got sexiness, snarky-ness, sarcasm and girl-on-girl action. Seems trite till you realize it was published 53 years ago and then it's all just a fun ride like a Mad Men episode meets vintage Law & Order. Block is king!
