Man Candy by Jessica Lemmon

Is there room for two in that sleeping bag?
When it comes to love, a chiseled loner takes the scenic route in this irresistible standalone from the author of Eye Candy (“Truly the perfect romantic comedy.”—Lauren Layne).

After spending months buried up to my eyeballs in my family’s affairs, I’m ready for a break. The kind of break where I can spend two solid weeks camping and fishing in the company of absolutely no one. Then I find myself directly in the path of a drop-dead gorgeous tornado by the name of Becca Stone. Who can resist a night with a damsel in distress? Especially when she happens to be a leggy blonde? The last thing I expect is for Becca to show up on my cabin doorstep the next night, shivering in the rain and ready for seconds.

One minute I’m admiring the rock-hard jaw of the Magic Mike lookalike who walks into my bar, and the next I’m getting fired by my own brother. Loudly. In front of everyone. Luckily Dax Vaughn is a gentleman who aims his white-hot smile at me. Oh, it’s on. Wham, bam, thank you ma’am. Then a torrential storm washes out the main road and causes a massive power outage, giving us two whole weeks to enjoy each other’s company. At which point Dax will go back home, leaving “us” in the rearview mirror. That’s the plan. Or it was... until I started falling for him.

This is the third book in the series; they are linked, but each is a unique romance.

I enjoyed meeting Dax and Becca, and following their story, but I did find their on/off feelings for each other gave me whiplash! Usually, at least one of the leads is certain and attempts to persuade the other – here, they both were anti-relationship, but also clearly very attracted to each other. As they skirted around the issues, we get both their points of view, so are well aware of their feelings, but can't influence them actually talking to each other... I confess, I was invested in getting it sorted out!

It had some fun moments, some sweet ones, some sexy ones, and a satisfying ending. I enjoyed it, and was pleased when we had a brief catch up with Grace, too.

I enjoyed the characters of Dax and Becca, but it didn't hold my interest for long. The one-night stand vs more, seemed to drag the story down. Becca is seen by her family as flighty and someone who needs to be taken care of. Becca's self-esteem issues cause her to doubt herself, not only in following her dreams but her heart. Wanting more but believing that you aren't able to have it is devastating, and so she chooses to believe that love isn't meant to be.

Dax, on the other hand, knows what he wants. He's just not sure if he can build a foundation for Becca that will allow her to believe in herself and each other.
