An Alisa Review: Man Candy (Candy #1) by Amanda Young


Rating:  3 stars out of 5


Aaron Samuels has a dirty little secret. He’s in love with his boss. Logan is everything Aaron wants in a man, except he’s straight…and married.


College student, Aaron Samuels is in love with his boss. After four long years of working under his boss in every conceivable position except the ones heating up his dreams, Aaron is ready to give up and move on to greener pastures.


A promising job offer right after graduation seems like fate’s way of kicking him in the ass. He turns in his notice at work with a heavy heart, though he knows he made the right decision. After all, he couldn’t spend the rest of his life mooning over an unavailable man.


A torrid, late night tryst with a man Aaron believes to be Logan’s twin propels him into an emotional tailspin of guilt and confusion. Tough choices loom on the horizon, but he may find that things aren’t always as they seem.


This was a nice story.  Aaron has essentially been torturing himself being close to Aaron every day while dreaming about him and feeling depressed about his situation.  He takes the opportunity to use his new college degree and to get a new job and hopefully move on with his life.  He continues to laugh off Logan’s twin brother, Jake’s, flirting and Logan’s reaction to it.


This story was told from Aaron’s point of view and it was easy to feel his heartbreak and hurt from Logan’s actions.  Unfortunately I couldn’t help but think that if Logan was more open and truthful about his personal life they both could have started out much better.  I am definitely interested to see what happens with Jake, in the next story.


The cover art by Amanda Young is a nice romance cover and caught my eye.
