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!!!

    "Fun Romantic Comedy"
    Any additional comments?

    Raine is on a mission and is "in training". Wade, the man she has been in love with for years, is back in town. Wade likes his women skinny and Raine is more full-figured, so she is determined to lose weight to get him to notice her. When she passes out while running, she is rescued by a man that she recognizes as Dirk Adams, the mega movie star. He concocts a plan to make Wade jealous by posing as her boyfriend and the fun begins.

    Man Candy is Book 2 in the Five Wishes series and is a standalone. This was such a fun listen and I found myself laughing more than once. The bear scene was hilarious! I also liked that there was an important message in the story. If a man doesn't love you the way you are, he isn't worth your time. Never change to please someone else because there will always be someone who already thinks you're perfect. The narrator did a great job with pacing and character voices. I would recommend Man Candy.

    I was voluntarily provided this review copy audiobook at no charge by the author, publisher and/or narrator. This review is my honest opinion.

    "Needs more book!"

    Ok, seriously this story is too short. There are some really annoying qualities to the book. The narrator has a voice that's just extremely annoying to listen to when speaking in Raine's voice. Also she's just annoying in general. Raine talks about herself in third person and says really odd things a lot and so its hard to get into and I'd rather have a better story that's longer, rather than this abrupt short story.

    I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

    Story
    "Laugh out loud funny and sweet"
    What made the experience of listening to Man Candy the most enjoyable?

    The narrator is perfect go for the story. She gives exactly the perfect inflection, emotion and sweetest that is Raine. I will listen to this story over and over.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Raine is my favorite. She is so sweet and truthful. She is honest, caring, quirky, and with a huge family that is funny and uninhibited. She shows her awe of Dirk the movie star but treats him with love and friendship


    Which character – as performed by Angie Hickman – was your favorite?

    Raine as said in previously said. She did a great job with each character, making them lovable even when they were odd like most of her family


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

    Yes definitely,,,,my husband kept asking me what was so funny,,couldn't stop laughing at the bear scene and had to stop listening because i was laughing


    Any additional comments?

    I can't wait for story! Well worth the cost the credit

    "Need A LOL time? This is it"

    I got this book via audiobook boom. Although this is a romance it is mostly comedy. The H/h get into and out of some crazy situations. The voice of the h grated on my nerves but the story was good. To be in love with someone from kindergarten and then to actually find your forever love while trying to impress the man you thought you should love made for some very funny moments. I listened to the book in one sitting while I completed crocheting a hat. It will make you laugh out loud at times.

    I read all kinds of books, but I have an obsession with paranormal and fantasy at the moment. Sorry about any spelling mistakes/typos.

    Story
    "I laughed so hard"

    Raine Harper has been in love with Wade gates since preschool but he doesn't seem to know she exists. Raine is determined to change that by changing herself so she's physically appealing to him. While running around the lake she meets Dirk Adams a movie star.

    Dirk offers to help Raine and hilarity ensures. Raine's thought processes are amusing but the situations she gets herself in... OMG!

    Need a good laugh? This book is perfect.

    This book picks up about the same time book one left off but the characters from book one don't appear so you can listen to this book as a standalone.

    Angie's narration is great it's got a really nice flow to it and her delivery made the funny parts even funnier. The character voices are well done and believable.

    This book was supplied free by the author/narrator/publisher and I voluntarily wrote this honest review.

    "Funny Romance"

    This was a funny romance that had me laughing out loud several times. It fell a little flat for me when Dirk/Adam and Raine eventually got together and had sex, Their speech and the description was rather raunchy and seemed to me a little out of the humorous character of the rest of the book. I would listen to it again for the laughs, but I'd skip the last 30 minutes of the book.

    The narration was good. Elise hit all the humorous notes spot on, and the delivery was smooth, relaxed, and perfectly paced.

    "Sweet Fun!"

    xx

    This is a cute, funny story, just over two hours.

    Raina Harper loves Wayne Gates. Gates sees Raina as fun friend. A classic make the boy you love jealous by pretending to be involved with another boy.

    But there are always complications – like developing feelings for the fake boyfriend, with whom you are trying to make the real boyfriend jealous of.

    A nice, light read with a little bit of sass.

    Angie Hickman is perfect for the perky, as well as diva,/drama (for lack of a better term.)


    There are some naughty bits, but nothing too over-the-top.

    A strong, above average three-star rating overall and for the story. Angie Hickman gets four stars for her perky performance.



    *I received this work in exchange for my review; good, bad or meh. I've written all 3 kinds.

    This is such a funny book I laughed my way through most of it I really loved it. The naration was wonderful and I dont think it could have been any better. If you read this like I did, when you are having a bad day it will be the best medicine.

    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.
