Publisher's Summary

He's back.

Not just back in town, but living in the flat right beneath mine. And he looks good enough to eat, which is just one more reason to stay away from him. But I can't resist.

The sex is incredible (pretty sure we've shaken the house right off its foundation), but he can't fool me - not this time. A degree in marketing and five years in advertising have taught me that "true love" is a fairy tale used to sell lipstick, diamonds, and perfume. It doesn't exist.

He thinks I'm wrong, and he wants to prove it.

I think he's crazy, so I dare him to try.

It might be the biggest mistake of my life.

Almost Great

This book was so close to awesome for me. Let me preface this by saying that my issues are entirely due to personal preference and nothing to do with the writing or performance. In face, the narration was great by both parties and the story itself was sexy and fun but there was one thing that just kept getting under my skin enough that it detracted from my experience. The heroine. Again, it's entirely personal preference, but she just got on my nerves. The neurosis and the irrationality just made me want to reach through the headphones and give her a smack. She's the kind of woman who drives me nuts in real life. Who says one thing and tries to push the man away and then gets pissed off when the man doesn't try to pursue her. It's beyond aggravating. The whole saying one thing but expecting the guy to read your mind and know you mean something else. Grrrr...

Sinfully Seductive, Satisfyingly Sweet!

…. And the best part of Man Candy, it's calorie free!

I loved this five star audio! Harlow delivers a steamy, yummy, sexy, funny romance that will satisfy both your naughty and nice fantasies. The witty banter and sexy games Quinn and Jaime play will get your heart racing, make you blush, and have you craving more.

Some spoilers;
When Jamie was a teenager, she confessed her feelings to her brother's best friend Quinn; however, Quinn deflects her admission in part out of respect for the family who's been good to him. He didn't feel it would be right to take advantage of the situation. He's devastatingly handsome and soon lands a modeling job that takes him away for one modeling gig after another.

Years later, Jaime is all grown up and has a successful career but life has taught her true love doesn't exist. She's happy with her life, and close friends, but doesn't believe she needs a man or a relationship to make her happy. Oh, she will date from time to time, have hot sex but with her rules she will never commit or say the "L" word.

Jamie and her brother both own an apartment building that has two apartments attached. She lives in one of the apartments; however, her brother decides to temporarily rent out the other apartment to Quinn who is back in town because he is wants to start working on changing careers. At first, Jamie doesn't want anything to do with Quinn, but he soon convinces her to go out on a date in an attempt to convince her love does exist. Quinn finds Jamie's walls and rules are tough barriers but he works patiently to break through them all.

Man Candy had me smiling, blushing, swooning and laughing, and I devoured, savored and craved every minute. It was well worth the time and credit, and I'm happy to have found another author to follow.

Lee Samuels and Brooke Bloomingdale performance rocked. I loved how they delivered all the sweet, sultry, steamy scenes. I look forward to listening to more audios by either of these narrators.

Meh

I couldn't get into this book. I still have 4 hours left and just can't finish it. Just not the book for me. I wasn't a fan of the heroine in this, at all. I couldn't connect with her, so I don't even care about how this book ends.

Hard time connecting with characters

The main character (Jaime) drove me insane. First she fell for this guy when she was younger, he broke her heart then he falls for her but she refuses to start a relationship because of him and some more happens from there. All in six weeks. The way the story line started between them two was so confusing to me. It all happened all way to fast. This book to me was unreasonable, unreal, disconnected, and fast paced in terms of relationship development. Jaime seemed a bit chaotic, irrational, disturbed. And the freaking talks about social media and GNO's, and hashtags, and the scrolling and the pictures and the stalking. The reactions of the characters in most of the scenarios lost me. I stopped this book several times and said I can't continue on after a few paragraphs of "What on earth?".

In the end I was so excited I got through this book. I wouldn't recommend it though.

PERFECT.. A CALORIE FREE TREAT

Who amongst us can resist a title like this.. well not me - and I'm so glad I delved right into this little treat because it delivered so much more than the obvious Man Candy. There was a 27 yr old woman who'd convinced herself that true love didn't exist and her handsome adolescent crush, who'd been away modelling for 10 years, was now back - and he patiently took the time to show her she was wrong wrong wrong. And he did this in the most amusing, tender, sexy, touching and irresistible way.

The main and secondary characters were great, the conversations flowed nicely, the chemistry sizzled, the plot was unique, entertaining and there were parts that were lol funny, the writing was well paced, the sex was hot and the romance was perfect. Dual POV's and good narration.

Worth a credit? YES.. it ticked all my boxes.

Started really good.

Ended poorly. The idea of the story was great, but middle and ending was boring. Besides I didn't believe her for a second that she didn't want commitment.
Narration was great

HOT and SWEET

Finally, a book that is hot and sweet but doesn't give me that feeling at some point where it is gut-wrenching with emotions. I needed this!

A Fantastically Fun and Flirty Read!! Man Candy is Sure to Satisfy Your Sweet Tooth!!

This was my first book by Melanie Harlow and OMG, I have totally been missing out.
Melanie can write a sexy, yet sweet romance read that will leave you begging for more!!!
Man Candy was a great fun and Flirty Read that grabbed you from page one and sucked you in.
This is the story of Quinn and Jaime and how karma can bite you when you least expect it.
I adored this story!! I loved how the roles were reversed! Jaime was like the guy in this story, and I loved seeing a female play that role of the girl who just doesn't want any strings attached commitment while the guy is all about wanting to cuddle and commit!
The crazy funny banter between these two was laugh out loud great! The chemistry was off the charts and the entire story was addicting from the very start!!
I DEVOURED this book!!! I was giddy the entire time. I loved how the story just jumps right into the fun. There was no slow long drawn out build up, the characters just come out in the first chapter!!
I purchased this book through Audible and LOVED it!! Both narrators were great!!!
Seriously Lee Samuels was amazing as Quinn! He left goosebumps on your skin with his sexy and carefree words and Brooke Bloomingdale has a beautiful voice that was so passionate about Jaime's character. A great duo who brought this story to life!!
I highly recommend this book to all romance readers!! Melanie Harlow completely exceeded my expectations and I can't wait to read all her books now!! :-)

Any additional comments?

I loved this book from start to finish. It made me laugh and blush at the same time. This is the type of book I'm always so happy to find because I can listen to it over and over. The narrators were excellent and this book was so entertaining and I say it's definitely worth the credit.

I loved this book

I really liked this book.

It was very well written, and the story has you falling in love with the characters. While I'm not as extreme as Jaimie, I'm one of those woman that are not very emotional. I don't want to be touched constantly, or talk about my feelings... yuck. With that said I do love my husband of 10 years deary, and he's learned to deal with my quirks. ;)
So I can relate to her character and that drew me in to the story even more.

I loved Quinn too, my only complaint would be that he was too sweet. He seemed like the girl in the relationship; I needed him to be more manly, or cocky... or something. He was just missing something.
