Publisher's Summary

Raine Harper is in love with Wade Gates. But Wade likes women who are model thin, and Raine is model thin, plus a whole lot of pounds. Desperate to make him love her, she trains just a little too hard and passes out in the arms of superstar movie star Dirk Adams.

Dirk thinks Raine's junk in the trunk is perfect and proposes to make Wade jealous by becoming her pretend boyfriend. Pretend soon seems very real. Is Dirk a great actor, or is something really developing between Raine and the movie star?

Five Wishes...A happy ending is only a coin toss away.

    "SUPER CUTE!! LIKEABLE CHARACTERS AND FUN STORY!!!"
    Any additional comments?

    ** I was given a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review **

    I like these little short stories...and the narrator is cute, but needs to work on her male voices....they are not good...female voices...perfect and so adorable...other than that this was a fun installment!! Raine doubts herself so much, she is practically killing herself to lose weight...she passes out exercising...and is found by the famous Dirk...he rescues her and they become friends...there is a spark...Dirk offers to be Raines pretend boyfriend to help her impress Wade her secret crush...but sometimes we find out the things we thought we wanted, are not all that they seemed....Super cute and well worth your time and a credit!!!

    "Quick, funny, easy romantic listen"
    What did you love best about Man Candy?

    I love the author's writing style. She has a great sense of humor and I love the inner dialogue of her main character Raine.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I love Dirk, he has sweet but also had the "hero complex" going on.


    Have you listened to any of Angie Hickman’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    no, this was my first Angie Hickman performance so I can't compare it to any other.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    yes, it was a very easy listen that I could listen to in one sitting. It was funny and I couldn't out it down.


    Any additional comments?

    This was a very funny and cute romantic story. It had me laughing out loud at times and even had tears running down my face from laughing so hard at one point. This was my first book by this author and I will be sure to check out others by her. My only regret is that the book is so short, I like longer books but for a nice quick listen this is a good recommendation.

    "Short and funny"

    I really can’t say there was anything particularly wrong or bad about this novel but there was also nothing particularly great. Had a good laugh more than once. It is mostly predictable but enjoyable

    "Loved the Story and the Humor"

    I received this audio book free for an honest review. I loved this book. I'm so disappointed that there are no future books in the series in Audible. I can't find out if Elise Sax is going to have her other books narrated. I love the humor that Elise puts in her books. You will REALLY enjoy this short story. The narrator did a good job as well.

    "Totally love it! Wanted more!!"
    Any additional comments?

    This was a wonderful "Cinderella-esque" story that unlike Cinderella, left me wanting more. The story was good (albeit too short) and the two main characters were fun and relatable and real and flawed and perfect.

    The narrator did an excellent job making the scenes come alive. I especially liked how easily the written and the narrated came together to give you a wonderful feeling for Raine's family. My only regret is that it wasn't long enough. I wanted more.

    "So funny"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Man Candy to be better than the print version?

    Yes. I read this book before I listened but I kind of forgot about it. Listening reminded me of how funny it was. I can see myself listening to this again.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    When Raine's Dad and brothers wanted to wrestle Dirk.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Laughing. So many parts made me laugh.


    Any additional comments?

    I really enjoyed this book. It was short but so funny and cute. At the end you get a glimpse of the next book in the series which I also read but I think I might listen to that one too. If you want something short, sweet and funny, then this is for you.

    Story
    "Quirky and Adorkable!"

    The title says it all, this book is quirky and adorkable. Raine is 23 and has spent her entire life in love with Wade, the successful boy next door that never noticed her. He's coming back into town and Raine is desperate to get him to fall in love with her. Since Wade prefers model thin women, Raine is determined to lose weight and become the woman of his dreams.

    While running one night, she meets Dirk Adams, a hot movie star renting a cabin near her, and together they devise a plan. Dirk will pretend to be her boyfriend, and Wade will be overcome with jealousy. And if that doesn't work, she has plenty of back up plans too!

    This book was laugh out loud funny! The pop culture references and ridiculous scenarios kept a smile on my face. Raine's inner dialogue reminds me a lot of Mindy Kaling's biography and writing style. Since we never get a single detail about Raine's physical appearance (not even her hair color!), I just pictured her as Mindy.

    The only criticism I have is that I wish the book was longer! I wish we could have seen it from Dirk's point of view too. The entire book is spent in Raine's rambling, quirky mind, and she doesn't have a high opinion of herself. Outside of her adorkableness, we never really see why Dirk falls for her. Is he just as quirky inside? I'd love to have a peek into his mind.

    I'm putting this author on my to read list. The narrator was great, her character's voices weren't too over the top. I love a narrator that makes you forget that you're listening to a book, and her narration pulled me right into the story. This book was gifted to me from the author in exchange for an honest review.

    "Very funny listen"

    I loved this short story. It was both funny and suspenseful. I have read other books by the author, so I knew the writing style. Angie Hickman is a new performer to me. I thought she added a lot to the story with her expressions and the way she said things, not necessarily what she said. My review is not a synopsis of the book, but rather my opinion of it.

    Story
    "Absolutely laugh out loud funny!"

    I am absolutely delighted by this novella.

    It is a fabulous bite size nugget of sumptuous romance with a generous dollop of humour. It is easy to listen to and almost impossible to willingly pause in the middle of. Rain is a quirky and smart woman with a relatable lack of confidence and Dirk is... well... va-va-voom!

    I usually find short stories frustrating because the story lacks sufficient details or dimensions. Elise Sax has delicately balanced this story with just enough background detail, panty melting moments, romance and humour to keep the story well paced and keep the reader enthralled. Angie Hickman narrates the story well, projecting the flavour of the story with flair.

    This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.
