Author’s Note: Candy Rain is a prequel. However, the recommended reading order is Sex and Candy, then Candy Rain. The stories have been presented in this collection accordingly.
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 at 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 at the end of the evening are sweet memories of a night with Lee—and whether those memories would ever be enough.
Sex and Candy 2nd edition is a present for all of us you loved the story the first time. The biggest change from the first edition is the addition of the prequel (to be read after S&C) Candy Rain. It is the story of how Tony and Lee found each other. It is our chance to get to know Tony – the man completely devoted to our beloved Lee.
Here is a reprint of my original S&C review:
Lee and Tony met at a hotspot dance club, known as Candy, one year ago. They have since settled into a life of domestic bliss. Tony gives Lee one night at Candy to have a little fun… This is a short, hot story, but there is an underlying sweetness I have come to expect from Jaye. I have loved every one of her stories that I have had the pleasure of reading. Sex and Candy is no exception. Yes, there was an element of predictability inherent in the story, but it was well written and kept me turning the pages.
So what about Candy Rain?
Well, I don’t want to give away the plot, but if you enjoyed S&C you should enjoy Candy Rain. It casts completely new light on Tony, Lee, and their relationship. It is about their beginning and it is just as sweet and hot as S&C.
They are both quick reads and well worth the time. I strongly suggest you read Candy Rain after Sex & Candy.
