This was the first book of Lisa Burstein's that I've had the pleasure of reading. I freakin' loved it. Candice is one of my favorite female leads that I have read in a long time. She is strong and savvy, but she isn't perfect. She is still hesitant in many ways with herself. Sneaking Candy was about her becoming comfortable with being Candice AND Candy. And I loved the journey that she went on.

I'm from South Florida so I liked that the book took place at the University of Miami (even though I'm not a huge hurricane fan, it was still nice to know the setting of the book.) Candice is a graduate student so she was taking classes as well as teaching classes. This girl seemed busy! But she still has time for a rockin' romance. As soon as I met Candice's professor I thought he was an arrogant jerk. He may have been hot but he was awful. I was really worried that there was going to be some sort of love triangle going on in Sneaking Candy, but I am super happy to report that there was no love triangle. Sneaking Candy was much more about Candice's personal growth and her romantic endeavors included only one, very awesome guy.

Candice was so hesitant about James at first, but I liked him right off the bat. He was cute and more importantly he seemed to be a guy of substance and he just seemed so sweet. I liked how much he seemed to genuinely care about Candice, but that didn't mean he would blindly just do whatever she told him too. He wanted something real and I really respected that. The romance isn't rushed or forced, it takes some time to develop and more than one curve ball is thrown their way but I loved reading about the two of them.

Lisa Burstein has such a gift with words. The writing in Sneaking Candy was wonderful.

'Sneaking Candy' is a fun and steamy New Adult contemporary romance that follows our main character Candice Salinas as she attempts to combine her graduate classes, her TA job, and her love life all while trying to become a great writer. But Candice has a secret that only her roommate knows about - she writes erotic romance under the pen name Candy Sloane to help pay her bills. She's doing well as a romance writer, but knows that if her secret got out, her academic career and the hopes of being taken seriously as a writer would disappear. Everything seems to be going fine until Candice gets up the nerve to ask out the hot barista, James, from the local coffee shop. What she wasn't expecting was the fact that James is actually an undergraduate at the school and is one of her students. Knowing that any type of relationship with James is off limits, Candice can't keep herself away from him and they begin a relationship that even her counterpart Candy would be proud of.

This was a light and fun contemporary romance that had it's share of both incredibly hot scenes and more serious parts mixed in. I really liked the character of Candice. She was down to earth, determined, and smart. She also had her flaws, like her incredibly low self-esteem after her last breakup and insecurities about her ability to write. I found her to be realistic and easy to identify with. The setting was at a university in Miami, which was perfect for the book. Being a reader and an English major myself, I really loved that Candice wanted to be a writer and was teaching English at the college. She even mentions bloggers and their reviews of her erotica books in the story, which was fun to identify with. It kinda felt like she was talking about me in a way, which I thought was really cool.

NOTE: I received the book via Netgalley in exchange for my honest review.

I don't remember what I was expecting from this book when I requested it. I'd read another book from the author, so I thought I'd check out Sneaking Candy and see what happens. I think that Burstein accomplished what she was going for, even if it wasn't something great. It was fast paced, light and entertaining. It certainly wasn't meant for deep analysis of what is and what isn't a good practice in novel writing.

Writing style:
It flows well and is entertaining in a silly, non-committing kind of way. This is definitely not mean to be a serious novel.
However, I would have enjoyed it much more if it wasn't the stereotypical cliche of all recently published new adult novels. Honestly? I'm a bit tired of reading about girl meets boy in college and their sudden, inextinguishable attraction.

Story line:
I guess I liked the story line even if most parts of it were too cliche to even matter. But the clash of Candace's secret author identity - Candy - and the 'real' author she was attempting to become, was interesting to read about. The romance was a bit trivial and the parental issue didn't gain a resolution.

-Believing in yourself can be the key to success.
-The expectations of others concerning your own life shouldn't be your cornerstone
-People in power can try to take advantage. You just have to be prepared to say no and act on it.

Candace (Candy) was an insecure girl with lots of unresolved issues from both her past and present. She was hurt and angry at her parents, who kicked her out just because she wanted to pursue a career in creative writing.
