Misty Jordan decides to take her therapist's advice. For thirteen years, a secret changed her life permanently and her therapist feels she will gain closure by facing her problem head on. But once she gets home, it is not that easy.
Jaydan Evans owns Candy Girl, a men’s entertainment magazine. A tormented past leaves him in pain and often living like a hermit, until Misty enters his life.
Misty returns to her hometown after listening to her therapist's suggestion. She had to believe the therapist was correct when she mentioned experiencing posttraumatic stress. Misty was all set to confront Jaydan and express the situation, then changed her mind. When she accepts the assistant position with his magazine, she decides to keep her secret on the back burner. Jaydan is in charge of Candy Girl and explains to Misty that it is a tasteful magazine and not one full of smut. He is surprised how well Misty catches on. She is the best employee he has ever had. They both have a troubled past that strikes every nerve, but neither wishes to express anything. Jaydan still has questions with missing answers. With each passing day that their hearts grow closer, they feel their togetherness can lift all the tormented grief from their lives.
Candy Girl is a poignant story that captures the heart. Misty and Jaydan are well-developed characters that share a strong connection in their relationship. Their detailed emotions reach deep into the heart. The reader gets a feel for their frustration, loss, and newfound love for each other. Ms. McCann spins a rare, exquisite tale with vibrant characters that leave a lasting impression. This extraordinary read captures the true essence of loss and the power of love to heal.
