Donna Reads: Man Candy by Melanie Harlow

The Blurb: He’s back. Not just back in town, but living in the flat right beneath mine. And he looks good enough to eat, which is just one more reason to stay away from him. But I can’t resist. The sex is incredible (pretty sure we’ve shaken the house right off its foundation), but he can’t fool me—not this time. A degree in marketing and five years in advertising have taught me that “true love” is a fairy tale used to sell lipstick, diamonds, and perfume. It doesn’t exist. He thinks I’m wrong, and he wants to prove it. I think he’s crazy, so I dare him to try. It might be the biggest mistake of my life.

Jaime Owens doesn’t believe in love. She’s a love-him-and-leave-him sort of girl. She uses men for sex only and then kicks them out. Quinn Rusek is one of her brother’s friends. She’s known him all of her life. She even told him she loved him once when she was a teenager, and he was embarrassed and laughed at her, even though he really did like her back. He’s always liked her. Ten years later he’s back in her life, living below her. After some silly back and forth, they begin a physical relationship, but she has vowed never to love anyone. 

I read this one when I realized it was the first book in the series (set before After We Fall time-wise). I wanted to make sure I hadn’t missed something important. I hadn’t. I really did not like Jaime. Even after she figured out how she really felt for Quinn, I still didn’t like her. She was just a dud for me.
