About The Book
Revenge is sweet, just like candy.
Candy Seaborne knows she’s badass. She takes after her father, an assassin and possibly a spy, although he won’t admit to either. She idolizes him. Her dream is to follow in his footsteps. But first, she has to finish high school.
Biding her time, waiting for real life to begin, Candy craves drama and isn’t above manufacturing some. If you’re a classmate who wronged her or a boyfriend who cheated, watch your back. She’s no pushover, and revenge may be her favorite pastime.
Jonah Bryson is the senior class heartthrob who breaks all the stereotypes. He’s a jock, but he isn’t the typical player. He’s moody and antisocial. No girl has gotten anywhere with him since his last girlfriend broke his heart.
Candy sees Jonah as a challenge and the perfect distraction. But she may be in over her head because unlike everyone else, Jonah isn’t buying her tough act. He sees the lost, lonely girl inside. He sees too much. When he looks at her that way, she wants to let her guard down and be vulnerable. But that’s the last thing she should do because her father’s world is spilling over into hers, and life is about to get real much sooner than Candy expected.

I am just going to say this first, get ready for a cliff hanger when this book ended I was distraught, I was not ready for it to end at all but thankfully we only have a couple of months to wait to find out what the hell will happen next. So for those of you that haven't read let me explain why this awesome YA novel is going to be your next obsession.
Candy is the leading lady. An actual bad-ass, tough and ready to follow her father's footsteps as an assassin and quite possibly a spy but she has to get through high school first and as we all know high school is full of emotional land mines. Boys, friends, and countless other problems. Candy is a fabulous character, full of emotional and a complexity only a teenager can manage.
We of course have a wonderful chemistry between Candy and the mysterious and brooding Jonah who has secrets of his own. There relationship blossoms really well, it really had a natural progression even though the premise is out of the ordinary for most of us. That's what I loved about the book, the combination of honest teenage angst and the action and excitement of spies and assassins. It really had a great balance!
I thoroughly enjoyed this book and felt it would reach a vast readership!
a crazy commotion of action, love and secrets! Like Candy is as good as it sounds!
