Really Really Short Review: Eye Candy by Jessica Lemmon


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?)

Jacqueline: As an adult woman--and the vice president of a marketing firm--I shouldn't be waiting by my office window to ogle the mystery man who jogs by every morning at 11:45. Sure, he's a gorgeous, perfect specimen of the human race, but I can't bring myself to hit on a total stranger. However, my best friend-slash-colleague Vince Carson thinks I should do more than talk to the guy. In fact, he's borderline obsessive about "getting me laid." (His words.) But the more time we spend together, the more it's clear: The one I'm falling for is Vince.

Vince: Jackie Butler's got it bad for some pompous, over-pumped A-hole who struts his stuff past her window. That doesn't bother me. I know she deserves nice things. What does bother me is that she friend-zoned me big-time last year, so I can't ask her out myself. But what if I set her up with Mr. Steroids? Then, when he breaks her heart, I can swoop in and save her like the nice guy I am. Everything's going according to plan . . . until we share a ridiculously epic kiss. And suddenly anything is possible.


Not bad. A cute friends to lovers romance with a few hang ups.

With duel POVs, we get to see both Jackie and Vincent muddle through their feelings as best friends (and co-workers) who want a little more but are afraid to make the leap. Which of course brings us the shenanigans.

It was a humorous and light read and overall enjoyable, but didn’t really make a huge impact on. The miscommunication was driving me a bit mad and I just didn’t really connect with Jackie or Vincent (I found them to be a bit immature). That being said, there were cute moments and I’m looking forward to the rest of the series, including Davis and Grace’s story (oh the teasing!).

Our friendship is important. All I can hope is that I haven’t ruined what we have for a stab at what we could be.

  1. I’ve seen a lot of reviews that are very similar, people like this but it wasn’t her best. 😉 Great honest mini review!

  2. I agree with KindleMom1 above, I have seen a lot of similar reviews. Everyone is saying it’s okay, but not her best book by far. I may just skip this one. I haven’t gotten to read anything from this author yet, so I want to start with her best. lol! Great mini review!

  3. Yes. Miscommunication held this cute read back

  4. I think I’ll give this one a pass. Miscommunication drives me crazy!

  5. I love a good dual POV romance, but over the top miscommunication always irks me in romances. Sounds like I might be better off skipping this one, despite all the cute shenanigans!
