All I ever wanted was to make a name for myself as Candice Salinas, creative writing grad student at the University of Miami. Of course, secretly I already have made a name for myself: as Candy Sloane, self-published erotic romance writer. Though thrilled that my books are selling and I have actual fans, if anyone at UM found out, I could lose my scholarship…and the respect of my faculty advisor, grade-A-asshole Professor Dylan.
Enter James Walker, super-hot local barista and—surprise!—my student. Even though I know a relationship is totally off-limits, I can’t stop myself from sneaking around with James, taking a few cues from my own erotic writing…if you catch my drift. Candy’s showing her stripes for the first time in my real life, and I’ve never had so much fun. But when the sugar high fades, can my secrets stay under wraps?
Okay.... Okay... Okay.... I have to say this and I really mean it but I really LOVED this book! I have never laughed so hard in my life because the characters in this story were a riot. I love Lisa's style of writing and her writing about this taboo topic of teacher/student was awesome sauce all... ...more

4.5 stars. I really enjoyed this one. I think the main reason is because I felt a real connection to the main character Candice. She, like me, is a student and a writer. Candice keeps her Candy Sloane persona under wraps in fear of people, like professor Dylan, learning about the erotic romances... ...more

I loved this book. Being a self-published author myself, I could really relate to the struggles that Candice had with feeling legitimate and authentic. I was pulled right in and enjoyed the story right from the get-go (frankly I stopped watching a Meryl Streep movie to go back to reading). Despit... ...more

The cover of Sneaking Candy was what grabbed my attention first and once I read the blurb I thought it would be a bit of fun. It turned out to be a quick read that I found to be quirky and sexy with a touch of seriousness.

Sneaking Candy is the first book I've read by this author and I can't believe how pleasantly surprised I was! It was a fun, fast paced read with engaging characters. And more importantly I found that most of these characters were LIKABLE, which I feel isn't the case in a lot of NA books, especial... ...more
Candy or Candice? I choose a little of both. I absolutely loved Sneaking Candy. It's one of those stories that gives you a little bit of everything and it's absolutely perfect for the New Adult genre. This is the third Lisa Burstein book I've read, and I loved the darkness of Pretty Amy, Sneaking... ...more

Sneaking Candy by Lisa Burstein was a fun read and a page turner from start. It had everything which makes a story interesting and has you involved in the story. The plot about a grad student moonlighting as an erotic romance writer was new and exciting to read. Candy was the star of the story fo... ...more
The book equivalent to enjoying a hot fudge sundae. :-) I rather enjoyed the plot and the points made about being a new adult or romance author versus a "legit literary force." Well played, Lisa, well played! I have read quite a bit of romance and some new adult, some really good and some absolut... ...more
