Sometimes lies are sweeter than the truth.
Beauty is alluring; it can disguise the ugliness beneath. But scarred beauty is even more potent to a girl who vowed never to let her heart be broken again. It was an easy vow for Candy to keep until she met Jonah, an arrogant boy with a face that would be too perfect if not for the scar that marred the skin beside his eye.
That imperfect boy earned her trust and won her heart, but the ties that bind people together are fragile, especially when lies are told. Trust is also fragile, and once broken, doesn’t heal like a heart. Trust has to be earned again, and Jonah desperately wants Candy’s trust back.
But Candy has more than Jonah to worry about. Her father is in trouble, and she intends to help him whether he likes it or not. People tell her he’s a bad man, and that may be true, but he’s not all bad. Deep down, she understands his brand of badness because she’s so much like him.
When Candy finally learns the truth, she’ll have to grow up fast, let go of old grievances, and realize that being vulnerable doesn’t make her weak. In fact, opening herself up may be the very thing that makes her whole again.
In ” an Oyster Shell – Another gritty instalment of the candy series. After the cliff-hanger in the first book I had to read this one.
The Pearls – The romance in this book is steamy! It’s tastefully done. I appreciate how the love interest is so steadfast in his pursuit of the MC.
I like the premise of the book- daughter of a spy. Who is getting mixed up in the family business.
There is something about this series that keeps me coming back. The MC is edgy to the point that I don’t like her half the time. It’s a YA spy type book so I keep going with the series. I love spy fiction!
The Sand – There is too much contrast in the main character. I think the author overplays the MC’s strengths and weaknesses. It disturbs the reading flow.
