Sex and Candy
Lee may be in a relationship with Tony, but that little fact doesn’t stop Lee when Tony agrees to allow him one wild night of no inhibitions. With excitement thrumming through his veins, Lee finds himself letting loose at Hard Candy, a popular cruise-worthy dance club known for its sweet Candymen and even sweeter one night stands. Under the club’s pulsing lights, he meets a mysterious man in leather, and things soon get hot and heavy as Lee rediscovers his submissive side under the Dom’s firm yet loving guidance.
When Lee returns home to Tony, though, will he face repercussions for his night of passion? Or is their relationship not quite as it appears?
With a stressful week on the job behind him, construction company owner Tony Morelli is ready for a night curled up on the couch with his dog, a couple of DVDs, and some takeout to keep him company. When a few guys from his crew convince him to join them at the steamy nightclub Hard Candy, Tony’s skeptical at best about his chances of having a good time. Bumping into gorgeous Lee, though, could change his mind, and they share a drink and conversation ripe with the potential to lead to so much more.
However, Tony doesn’t really do casual, and he has to ask himself if all he’d be left with are sweet memories of a night with Lee–and whether those memories would ever be enough.

One year ago Lee and Tony met in the club Hard Candy and what started as just a one night stand quickly morphed into much, much more. Now, Lee is back at the club where it all started for one night of dancing and debauchery before he returns back home to his lover. While the atmosphere is enough to get anyone’s heart pumping, it’s the dark man in leather that really gets Lee’s blood pumping but after such a hot encounter, will going home to Tony be enough?
Anyone that’s been following the blog for a few years may recognize this story; Chris reviewed the first edition of this book back in 2014 but it has since been expanded with the addition of a prequel story detailing just how Lee and Tony first met. The original story is first in the collection followed up by the new edition, as that was how the author felt they should be read, and I have to say I agree with that decision.
While the original story, Sex and Candy, is pretty much pure porn, well written and enjoyable pure porn, the prequel, Candy Rain, gives you a bit more story and a better glimpse of the characters before they jump into bed together. I really enjoyed both of them; Sex and Candy pushed all the right buttons for a short, steamy illicit type of encounter while Candy Rain, while also steamy, had an unexpected bit of sweetness added to it that left me feeling all mushy inside when I was done reading it. Both stories were well written and were great for a quick read in between doing other chores.
If you’re looking for a quick diversion from other responsibilities, or just something that will get your own blood pumping, you might want to check this one out. There was a lot packed in this short story and it was totally worth the read. 🙂
