Eye Candy

I was super excited to receive this ARC book from Valentine PR. With 2 of my favorite book tropes (friends to lovers and fake dating with a dash of long triangle) it was basically guaranteed that I would love this book before I read a single page.

The story began with main characters, Jackie and Vince who share the Co-Vice President title at a marketing firm. Their experiences of going through divorce brought them together, but isn’t the only reason they spend so much time together outside of work.

Jackie is out, completely out of dating. Getting her heart broken once was enough and she’s not ready to dip her toe into the dating world anytime, if ever again.

Vince on the other hand has finally come down emotionally from his heartbreak. With a clear head and open mind, he realizes how big of a crush he has on Jackie. Not wanting to ask her for more while she’s still very much anti-dating, he cooks up a plan to get her back in action.

This book hooked me right from the start and made me laugh out loud. Seeing the inner-workings of Vince’s brain and how much effort he put into getting Jackie see him as more than a friend was so cute. Seeing the characters mentally process their thoughts when the lines start to blur between friendship and something more gave me all the feels and I couldn’t get enough of it.

If you love romcoms, this book is calling your name. And to further inspire you more, book 2 is in the works and will be out on Valentine’s day! Can’t wait to read about Davis and Grace’s story!
