Summary

Last call! At the end of the night, a clean-cut hunk and a rebellious bartender act on their unlikely chemistry in this frisky standalone novel from the author of Eye Candy.

Davis: I've had my eye on Grace Buchanan for a while now. Unlike the bubbly blondes I usually date, the feisty, flame-haired bartender both intrigues and bewilders me. Something about Grace - the tattoos? The nose ring? - makes every part of me sit up and beg. There's only one problem: She hates me. Trading insults and one-liners has become our M.O. But when Grace bets me that I can't get a date with a non-blonde if my life depends on it, I'm determined to prove her wrong by landing the ultimate non-blonde: her.

Grace: I'm used to regulars hitting on me, and I've turned them all down except for one: Davis Price. I like giving him a hard time, and he's kind of cute in his suit and tie - if you're into that kind of thing. Anyway, I don't care how many blondes he takes home...until one of them sidles up to him in my bar. Nuh-uh. But after my little bet with Davis backfires, our first date lands us in the sack. So does the second. And the third. Neither of us wants more than the best sex of our lives. The trouble is, it's not a question of what I want. It's what I need. And what I need is Davis.

Damn it!

Damn it! Damn it! Damn it! It was so good, and then she came and ruined it!!! Not even two of my favorite narrators could save it. Actually, the three stars are mostly for them, they did a great job, as usual. The rest? Well the story was sooooo sweet and sexy, until it wasnt. Doesnt matter that it has its HEA, the way the climax developed ruined for me. I hate heroines that start powerful and confident and end up being whiny idiots.

What a catch

Davis is a true Prince Charming and every woman’s dream but Grace is an idiot for hurting him.

Great until the end

Ok I loved most of the book- I smiled and laughed and loved the different characters, especially Davis and Grace but also their friends and family. The climax of the story (the standard uh-oh) was pretty silly- it kind of just felt a bit too forced. Luckily it was just a short time of annoyance because then the HEA was here. So overall, I really enjoyed this book.

I first wanted to listen to this audiobook because of Teddy Hamilton and Erin Mallon and they are amazing, as expected. Seriously, these two are some of the best in the business and can bring the book to life, which they did for me. I'm glad I had the opportunity to listen to this book through audible escape.

wonderful contemporary romance

This was great! Grace and Davis have such chemistry. Both hold back a bit, but it was great watching them open up. There was a point where I wanted to shake Grace, but thankfully she came to her senses :)

The audio was fantastic! Teddy Hamilton and Erin Mallon are some of my favorite narrators.

2 people with bad break up histories find romance

Gracie doesn’t believe in long term relationships due to her parents and her own relationship history. Since Davis was abandoned by parents as kids and then left at the alter, he also has a bad dating history. But they have hot chemistry and eventually decide to explore it. Sexy story but a lot of angst that each has to work out. Sweet HEA but drags a bit to get there.

This One Was Okay..

Seriously, Hamilton, Mallon is definitely one of the best duo’s in audiobook land. This story was very sweet but I got a little bored around chapter 9 and even they, couldn’t make it any better. It’s an easy read, just don’t expect fireworks. There aren’t any..

It was ok

The story itself wasn’t riveting but the performances were pretty good. I still don’t understand why this was called Arm Candy though. It feels like the author had a different story in mind and changed it after the title was already decided or something. It was a cute story, nothing too mopey or dramatic which was nice.
