Review by Diane ♥ Man Candy by Lila Monroe

A Review by Diane

Man Candy
Lila Monroe

Four Super Sexy, Spy Stars!!

 Well we’ve all heard about “sex on a stick” but what about “sex rolled into candy?”  That’s what we have in Man Candy, Lila Monroe’s fourth installment in her Billionaire Bachelors series.  What better way to tantalize a reader!!  You have hot handsome man, knee deep in chocolate, sexy as all get out, needing a fake fiancée.  Wow!!  Get the chocolates out and start reading and eating those bon-bons!

The one common thread that all the books in this series is the fact that one of the main characters always needs a fake fiancée or fake date to appear “legitimate” in whatever they are doing, whether it is a family get together or a business dealing.  The way they achieve this is with help from Olivia Danvers who owns a company called The Agency, a low profile but high class dating service.  Now I know what you are thinking, but this company is on the up and up and has very strict rules about who they match and how the relationship is to be handled.  Background checks are a must, and all of that is handled by the Office Manager, Alice Jones.  But Alice is tired of sitting behind a desk just doing research.  She wants some excitement in her life and when an opportunity presents itself for her to be part of the action and the next person matched, she jumps at it.

Nick Chambers has come to The Agency looking for a fake fiancée.  He needs to look “real.”  He’s a PI that is going undercover to determine if a well-known candy company called the CandyShack has stolen recipes from a friend of his.  But to get into the inner circle he has to look legit.  He needs to look serious.  He needs a diversion, and that is where Alice comes in.  She’s a perfect fit for what Nick needs…..despite the fact that they shared a hot sizzling kiss the previous night, before Alice even knew Nick was their next client.

Now, Rom-Coms aren’t normally my thing, but this had lots of excitement and plenty of adventures for our main characters.   The chemistry between Alice and Nick is pretty sizzling (like touch your finger to a hot pan sizzle), but it does take a while for them to really act on their feelings.  They tease, they tantalize, but both feel compelled to follow the rules of their contract so not a lot happens till you are at the 60% mark of the book. 

Lila Monroe is at her best in this book.  Hilariously funny at times, then swoon-worthy the next, it will keep any reader engaged till the end……ready for the next installment in this series. 

Combining her love of writing, sex and well-fitted suits, Lila Monroe wrote The Billionaire Bargain. Lila enjoys writing, as it gives her a flexible schedule to spend time with her kids and a wonderful excuse to avoid them. She lives in Los Angeles with her husband, who strips out of his well-fitted suits nightly.
