For two decades, 39-year-old Eden Clyde has been enjoying wealth and glamour as the muse and lover of Otto Clyde, the ultra-famous and much older king of the art world. Genetically, she hit the lottery, but Eden is unlucky in love: 18 years ago she put aside her dream of true love and marriage and has turned a blind eye to Otto’s philandering in exchange for a life without want. But as 40 looms overhead, she feels the cost of the arrangement finally taking its toll on her happiness.
Eden leaves their cozy downtown loft for New York’s frostier Upper East Side, where she begins to search for the life she left so many years ago. With the encouragement of a raucous group of girlfriends, Eden soon finds herself embroiled in a heated love affair with the much younger Chase Lydon. But just as their relationship is getting serious, an old flame resurfaces. Does Eden want the life she’s living – and loving – right now, or the love she left behind? On the brink of her 40th birthday, it’s time for Eden to follow her heart, but this time not even Eden is sure where that will lead.
With heart and humor, Arm Candy illuminates the unexpected ways people touch one another’s lives, and shows how it’s never too late to find true love.

The main character is completely unsympathetic. She acts like a spoiled child, dumping men she "loves" with little thought the the consequences or concern. It was hard to stomach the inevitable happy ending.
I will listen to Joyce Bean's narration again. The narration is fine.
I really wanted to like it. I got through half of it, and finally realized I don't want to waste time trying to enjoy something I just don't. I was disappointed. Narration was fine.
Delicious, captivating, love
When Eve came back to her roots, she was whole.
Forty is the new twenty!
