Revenge is sweet, just like candy.Candy Seaborne knows she’s badass. She takes after her father, an assassin and possibly a spy, although he won’t admit to either. She idolizes him. Her dream is to follow in his footsteps. But first, she has to finish high school.Biding her time, waiting for real life to begin, Candy craves drama and isn’t above manufacturing some. If you’re a classmate who wronged her or a boyfriend who cheated, watch your back. She’s no pushover, and revenge may be her favorite pastime. Jonah Bryson is the senior class heartthrob who breaks all the stereotypes. He’s a jock, but he isn’t the typical player. He’s moody and antisocial. No girl has gotten anywhere with him since his last girlfriend broke his heart.Candy sees Jonah as a challenge and the perfect distraction. But she may be in over her head because unlike everyone else, Jonah isn’t buying her tough act. He sees the lost, lonely girl inside. He sees too much. When he looks at her that way, she wants to let her guard down and be vulnerable. But that’s the last thing she should do because her father’s world is spilling over into hers, and life is about to get real much sooner than Candy expected.

In ” an Oyster Shell – The main character is severely abrasive at first, it was off-putting for me, but in the end the interesting story won out. In the beginning, it kept going through my head this character is a bit-challenging. The story wears her down don’t wory.

The Pearls – The story of this book kept me going. There was a vast amount of mystery that caused intrigue. The ending, will leave you wishing for book 2! I have read some books lately that were really great and fell flat in the end. This book was hard to connect with the MC until the second half of the book, then WHAM! You get hit with the ending. Then you are left whining inwardly about book two.

The Sand – The main character was predictable and weak in comparison to her supporting counter-parts at first.I felt like the character was really flat in the beginning, but it get’s better.

I give this 3 Pearls. It’s worth a shot.
