Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

If there was ever any doubt that pulp was alive and thriving, Noire's highly sexy, highly vivid G-Spot dispelled it. This follow-up delivers everything that lovers of this emerging micro genre—black urban erotic chick lit—are coming to expect: cribs full of music, sex, drugs and criminality; many dollars flying by; and an honest, often abused girl just trying to make it through. When Candy Raye Montana hooks up with Harlem rap don Junius "Hurricane" Jackson, she's expecting little more than a respite from serving as bait for stickups for her well-meaning but desperate mother and her mother's junkie boyfriend—and maybe a little luxury. But 'Cane turns out to be a major sociopath (with violent perversions that may be compensations for a small dick). Candy, unhappy and horny, turns to Internet cam mutual masturbation, but when Percy "Knowledge" Graham, Cane's lawyer, comes into her life, the love is real—and deeply satisfying. But Cane knows something's up, and Candy's life is more and more in the balance as Knowledge schemes to find a way for them to make a life together. Candy's first person and Knowledge's third begin to alternate chapters: both are completely absorbing and rarely miss. The cast of bling and trash extras are well-done and well-named. The most direct means to Candy's heart provides the novel's title. (Dec. 27)

From Booklist

Noire writes another sexy, gritty tale about the music industry. Junius "Hurricane" Jackson has a reputation for his genius at recognizing raw street talent. He is CEO of the number-one urban record label, House of Homicide, in Harlem. From coast to coast, Hurricane is as cruel as he is revered. Candy Raye Montana, a redhead with blue eyes, has lived a rough life. To escape the cruelty of serving as lure for her mother's stickups, she sings to keep living. At 17, Candy leaves Brooklyn to follow Nicky Gabriano to Los Angeles for a new start. When Hurricane offers her an audition, she becomes starstruck and shirks her obligations for a chance at fame and fortune. Hurricane claims Candy for himself and puts a lot of money and energy into her career. As her music climbs the charts, Hurricane becomes increasingly abusive and violent. When Percy "Knowledge" Graham, Hurricane's lawyer, comes into her life--their love only complicates Candy's situation. Knowledge schemes to find a way to save their lives and make a new life together. Lillian Lewis

Sexy Candy Raye Montana has always dreamed of having a singing career. Candy and her friends Dominica and Vonzelle form the group Scandalous! and get signed to shady music producer Junius "Hurricane" Jackson's number one urban label The House of Homicide. The girls are well on their way to becoming the next TLC or Destiny's Child but how much are they willing to pay for superstar status? Dominica is a true friend to Candy but becomes increasingly suspicious when Vonzelle becomes distant. Candy knows that Hurricane (a.k.a. Cane) is a talented producer but when she becomes his wifey she finds out just how sadistic and possessive he is. To top things off, Cane is a complete disaster in the bedroom. Candy finds herself feeling scared and sexually frustrated. She has to decide just how much of herself she is willing to give up for fame and fortune. Candy better make the right choice because the wrong one could turn deadly. Knowledge is Cane's personal attorney and business manager, but he has his own plans to get out of the game. One of those plans includes getting a taste of Candy. Will Candy see what Knowledge has to offer?

Candy Licker is an extraordinary novel by Noire. Noire skillfully mixes gritty, in-your-face urban drama with a healthy dose of raw sexuality. I really loved the shady music business storyline. The scenes are so descriptive that you'll feel like you're signed to The House of Homicide. Candy Licker gives you a voyeuristic view into the music industry. Noire created characters that are raw and real. She pulled no punches with this story. Be it graphic sex or violence, Noire took both of those aspects to the extreme. This story is not a fairytale and not for the faint of heart. Candy Licker is gripping, action-packed, and entertaining. Candy Licker proves that Noire is a force to be reckoned within the urban erotic genre.

Format: Paperback
In the New York underworld of rap stars and hip hop moguls lies a great infestation of greed, deviance and death. All of this is found in Noire's second installment in urban erotic tales, Candy Licker.

Candy Raye Montana is a young woman who has experienced more life in her nineteen years then some have in their sixties. Candy gets the opportunity to showcase her singing talents when she and her girls are signed with Junius "Hurricane" Jackson. Jackson, CEO of the House of Homicide recording studios, takes their career and puts them on the fast track to success but it does not come without a price. Candy finds herself as Hurricane's "wife" which to everyone else is a privilege but to her a nightmare. She is forced to endure his sadistic desires and sexual secrets. Candy, being a woman with a healthy sexual appetite, begins looking for sexual satisfaction and finds it in Hurricane's lawyer, Knowledge. While their relationship is fulfilling, they have to watch their backs because if Hurricane finds out the consequences will be lethal.

Having read both G-Spot and Candy Licker, this reader believes, consciously or sub-consciously Noire has a lot of parallels. The young beautiful girl caught up with the dollar signs, sadistic relationship with older men and the "hero" that saves our heroine, having a significant tie to her tormentor. What this reader sees is the development of a formula. This is not a bad thing but I worry that this kind of work will become predictable and boring. Also the classification of erotica some might find misleading. While there are some descriptions that are hot and sexy, they are overshadowed by perverse fetishism.

With that said, I did enjoy the vivid descriptions of the scenes in the club.

Oh my goodness!! Damn this book was so good!! Noire out did her self on this one. This is the first book I've read this new year and all I can say is it's already one of the best! It is gonnna take one helluva book to make me change my mind. I was so into this story that I could feel Candy's pain. I wanted to jump into the book and put a bullet in Hurricane's skull. He was a dirty, low-down psycho bastard! Candy suffered so much pain mentally and physically, from the beatings and humiliations and the deaths of her Mama, Caramel, Vonnie and Dom. I'm glad Knowledge was around,( we all need a candy licker like him) he saved Candy's life. This story will hook you from the first page, it's that good. I CAN NOT wait until Noire's next novel!

Candy Licker was a much anticipated book by me. Noire is a talented author who has the ability to spin an erotic tale. She does the damn thing in G Spot and here if I had not read G Spot, I probably would have rated this book a little higher. However, this book was very much similiar to G Spot so much so that the book became predictable. It had the same plot as G Spot,. I am not hating on the author but for me as a reader, I can't condone a repeat. I wonder why did she write the same story. I am compelled to ask that of the editor. Why would they let her do a replica of her first story. And the story was a bit concerning, considerating some actions of the characters. Some parts of the story were left unanswered and never revisited again in the story. I loved GSpot but this book will leave you a little concern, like did I like it or didn't I.

Yes, I would read another book by Noire, but with the hopes that the plot is different. Remember I am rating the book and not her writing ability.
