All I ever wanted was to make a name for myself as Candice Salinas, creative writing grad student at the University of Miami. Of course, secretly I already have made a name for myself: as Candy Sloane, self-published erotic romance writer. Though thrilled that my books are selling and I have actual fans, if anyone at UM found out, I could lose my scholarship…and the respect of my faculty advisor, grade-A-asshole Professor Dylan.Buy the Book •
Enter James Walker, super-hot local barista and—surprise!—my student. Even though I know a relationship is totally off-limits, I can’t stop myself from sneaking around with James, taking a few cues from my own erotic writing…if you catch my drift. Candy’s showing her stripes for the first time in my real life, and I’ve never had so much fun. But when the sugar high fades, can my secrets stay under wraps?
Sneaking Candy by Lisa Burstein is such a cute fun book! Candace/Candy is going to college and dreams of becoming a serious writer. But she has a secret. She is already self publishing naughty romance books under a pen name to help pay her bills. If her secret is found out her scholarship and her reputation as a serious writer could be jeopardized. But when Candace meets sexy James her plans start going awry.
“Keith vs. James was like comparing a rock and Channing Tatum.”
This story held my interest from start to finish. I even laughed out loud! And that my friends is rare. A student/teacher love interest, a hot sexy fellow student named James, a likable hilarious roommate, an erotic authors convention,steamy scenes, secrets and truths! All of these elements made for a fun read and great addition to the New Adult genre. If you are looking for a fun read with a sexy element then Sneaking Candy is a book for you!
