Welcome to Really Really Short Reviews were the name is long and the reviews are short! Because sometimes short is that much sweeter. (Also, because I’m really lazy!) And there might be quotes too (lots and lots)! (Because everyone loves quotes, right?)Arm Candy (Real Love, #2) by Jessica Lemmon
Series: Real Love #2

Last call! At the end of the night, a clean-cut hunk and a rebellious bartender act on their unlikely chemistry in this frisky standalone novel from the author of Eye Candy.
I’ve had my eye on Grace Buchanan for a while now. Unlike the bubbly blondes I usually date, the feisty, flame-haired bartender both intrigues and bewilders me. Something about Grace—the tattoos? the nose ring?—makes every part of me sit up and beg. There’s only one problem: She hates me. Trading insults and one-liners has become our M.O. But when Grace bets me that I can’t get a date with a non-blonde if my life depends on it, I’m determined to prove her wrong by landing the ultimate non-blonde: her.
I’m used to regulars hitting on me, and I’ve turned them all down, except for one: Davis Price. I like giving him a hard time, and he’s kind of cute in his suit and tie—if you’re into that kind of thing. Anyway, I don’t care how many blondes he takes home . . . until one of them sidles up to him in my bar. Nuh-uh. But after my little bet with Davis backfires, our first date lands us in the sack. So does the second. And the third. Neither of us wants more than the best sex of our lives. The trouble is, it’s not a question of what I want. It’s what I need. And what I need is Davis.
A fun, sparky romance, I loved all the tension between Davis and Grace. I liked that their relationship basically started because of a dare that led the way to adorableness and all the sparks. Good chemistry, hilarious moments, and fairly minimal angst.
I also liked Davis’ and Grace’s voice. It’s kind of like watching a sit-com where they break the 4th wall a bit to talk to us the audience.
Here be some fun quotes!
Grace strikes me as a woman who couldn’t be boring if she tried – even if she were doing her taxes while attending a talk about investment logic for sustainability.
On second thought, I love numbers. I might find that kinky.
My grandmother is a human lie detector.
I heard her tell Grace I like her and I heard Grace admit she liked me. I lingered in the hallway, mu stupid arrow headband in my hands, and smiled at my shoes.
It’s heady what the right girl can do to you.
