Synopsis: 
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.

My Rating: 

My Thoughts:
Eye Candy was a very realistic, cute story. I enjoyed the writing, the characters and real life issues between the two main characters. Phenomenal read.

Jacqueline is one half VP at her company. She's a smart, brilliant, beautiful and clumsy. Jackie was just outstanding. She had divorced her husband and thought about getting back on the scene dating wise when she admired a jogger named JT. She was poised. I loved her boldness, but how shy she was at the same time.

Vince was an amazing guy. He was the other VP and best male friend of Jackie's. Vince was a handsome, smart and almost dominating man. I enjoyed him from start to finish. I loved how much he cared for Jackie and tried to make things work.

The romance was beautiful. I mean best friends that work phenomenally as a couple AND business partners, what more could you want. I hated the mind games they played, but at the same time it was essential to their growth. I loved seeing them together and really working hard for what they wanted. Beautiful.

Definitely a good read!
