Adam Macias is a military vet hurt by circumstances and is losing hope when he showed up in Candy Heaven. There he meets Finn Stewart – the ever so radiant “kid” who seemed to carry all the love in the world. As Adam played the cat and mouse game with Finn, he learned that some wounds can simply be cured by love – something that Finn is so willing to give and share with him.

So, I’ve finally decided to write a review for this book after several rereads since my first one earlier in 2015. I honestly don’t know why I was initially having a hard time coming up with words to describe how I feel when it’s actually one of my favourite books from Amy Lane and also one of my favourites from the LGBT genre.

In Candy Man, each personality is colourful and vibrant that you’d end up rooting for them and want them to just be happy forever and not have any evil villains hurt them in any way!

You know that feeling when you get so invested with your characters? I was that invested with Adam and Finn.

It’s just so damn easy to fall for Adam and Finn separately, and together, they’re just a totally great and an absolutely swoon-worthy couple. And I’m not even talking about their looks, mind you. Adam and Finn is a couple that has a very symbiotic relationship with an awe-inspiring-almost-magical love story. Perhaps, it’s the story in general or the concept of Candy Heaven with the owner Darrin in it being able to glimpse into the future but beyond this premise, I feel like there’s a Finn and and Adam in every one of us that readers alike could easily relate to. I know I did because this is numero uno on my top reread list and whenever I feel like heading on a book slump, I simply pick this one out on my reader and the good vibes will keep pouring in and my energy to pick out something new is renewed. Haha! I know, it’s weird but great books does that to me.

Interestingly, this was my first full-on novel from Amy Lane and I’ve been a fan ever since. I just cannot recommend Candy Man highly enough! Trust me on this one.

Rating: 5 out of 5 stars
