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.

~Review for the expanded, second edition, which includes the new prequel story “Candy Rain”~
This was a piece of candy. I really liked Sex and Candy, and even more, its sequel, Candy Rain. It’s the perfect choice, if you ‘re looking for something short, light, and sexy.
Sex and Candy—3.75 stars
This reads more like a bite-sized erotica novella. With his boyfriend’s permission, Lee visits the Hard Candy club, for a wild night out. There, he meets an enigmatic man, who’s more than willing to help Lee explore his submissive side. But what happens when after all this fun, Lee goes back home, where Tony is waiting?
Told from Lee’s POV, this story is very, very steamy, with a nice dose of kink.
Although predictable (at least to me), the ending was perfection and very sweet.
Candy Rain—4.25 stars
This story is told from Tony’s POV, and it’s the prequel to Sex and Candy.
During a night out with his coworkers, Tony bumps into Lee, and proceeds to “save” him from a very persistent admirer. What follows is drinks and conversation. And the hottest night of their lives.
I really enjoyed this first meeting. Although short, there is a lot of slow burn which leads to a very steamy night. It was supposed to be an one off, but ended up being so much more. Again, the ending was perfect, and so very sweet.
Recommended for everyone, whether you ‘ve already read Candy Rain, or not.
