Candy chef Hayley Dunham has vowed to own her thirties; she’s a successful business woman, good friend and dutiful daughter but she can’t help but want more. She wants passion… Fireworks… And one kiss with the hot cop-next-door shows her exactly who she wants those fireworks with.

Garrett Mulligan has always wanted to be a cop, he’s the kind of man who lives to protect and serve. But when an injury sidelines him and raises doubts about him returning to work, he’s at his wit’s end until cute, flirty Hayley shows up to provide the perfect distraction…

I found Eye Candy an incredibly enjoyable way to spend a Sunday afternoon, out in my garden, sunbathing and reading this steamy story that was getting me all hot and bothered. 

It is a fairly simple story, next door neighours Hayley and Garrett come across each other one evening when Hayley is trying to break into her own house, after a night out celebrating her 30th birthday. She is determined to start her 30s as a "bad girl" instead of the good girl she had been in ther 20s. 

Garrett is a cop and came to stop the house being broken into, and the pair have a somewhat instant sexual chemical reaction to each other. 

However neither of them are convinced they want a relationship. 

This is a classic will they, won't they be together book, that is full of amusing incidents, as well as fabulous encounters between the pair. 

I was a bit disappointed more wasn't made of Hayley's job as a candy maker, she makes the most wonderful truffles, but despite there being bits about her days at work,  I wasn't made to feel hungry, which I would have expected from a candy maker. 

Although Hayley's candy, wasn't the only sort featured, Garrett was the ultimate in male eye candy, to the extent that Hayley's nickname for him is Officer Hottie!

I really enjoyed reading Eye Candy, its a lovely story, with some great characters, and a cute little dog too!

Thank you to Netgalley and Harper Impulse for this review copy. This was my honest opinion. 

Eye Candy is out on Thursday in ebook.
