Title: Candy Ever After
Author: Jo Raven
So you know how some authors will mention that their series should be read in order for a better reading experience and then so many of us scoff at the warning for all different reasons and figure that they'll grab the book anyways because, well heck, they just have to read the book and now? I'm that kind of person, the one that will sometimes disregard some warnings. However, Jo Raven's Candy Ever After is one of the books where you should read the first in the series since it pretty much starts off where the previous novel ends. Not that I couldn't follow what happened in the second part - much of it I was able to fill in the blanks and the parts that I couldn't, well I felt left out of a really good joke (alright, some weren't funny at all, but you get what I mean, right? )
I won't deny that I'm into a whole menage genre kick and yes, I've become somewhat judgey on what I do and don't like, and what I don't like is when it sounds and feels fake. But Jo Raven made me feel their connection: Candy and her boys Jethro and Joel, are still trying to figure things out between each other and although they love each other, like any relationship, there are still problems. They still needed to find what works for them and fight their own inner demons. What am I doing now that I've finished Candy Ever After? Get my grubby little hands on Candy Boys because filling the blanks only gets me so far and all great series need to be read in its entirety.
