Peek Inside Sneaking Candy

All I ever wanted was to make a name for myself as Candice Salinas, creative writing grad student at the University of Miami, but my secret identity as Candy Sloane, self-published erotic romance writer, could ruin that. Enter James Walker, super-hot local barista and—surprise!—my student. A relationship is totally off-limits, but I can’t stop myself from sneaking around with him, taking a few cues from my own erotic writing. But when the sugar high fades, can my secrets stay under wraps?

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?

I don't even know what to say about this book but OMG...can you say book hang over! It has been two weeks and I still don't have a clue what to say about the book. So all I can say is SPOILER ALERT!

I know from the moment I read the synopsis on Sneaking Candy from Lisa Burstein I would enjoy it. Its a great New Adult/Modern/Chick Lit read which will definitely appeal to many audiences.

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). Despite t ...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, especially ...more

By Rachel December 11, 2013

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 Ca ...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 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 absolute d ...more
