Oh yes, I loved this one! "Sex and Candy" worked with my tastes perfectly- a touch of daddy/humiliation kink to keep things interesting! However, even if those particular kinks don't float your boat I think you'd still love this one because it is so stinking cute!

Yes, this one is very short but I loved every second of reading it. We don't get a whole lot of back story or character development, but I had enough that I felt satisfied. For me, it was an excellent blend of hot and sweet, and I died

Oh yes...

"Sex and Candy" was a delicious bon bon filled with a smexy club hookup with a twist. It's sprinkled with daddy/authoritarian kink which I enjoy reading. Lee is young and in a committed relationship. He's in love with the older Tony and has been granted to have a night to relive his single days. He goes to a popular club known for cruising and catches

Hot, fun bite-sized read by Nico Jaye!

Lee has a wild encounter at a dance club. What will his partner Tony say?

Despite the potential for angst (Tony is fine with Lee having one wild night, but will Lee's indulgence ruin their relationship?), this was a light read, and a very smexy one at that. There's a bit of "daddy" kink thrown in, but it's playful, not creepy.

The ending was just right and moved this book to a 4-star read for me.

Super hot, bite-sized erotica novella about a young man getting his fantasy fulfilled in a gay club. While the ending might surprise some people, I wasn't, but that didn't distract me from enjoying this erotic little story. Excellent writing that focused entirely on Lee's POV and drew me right in. And who doesn't want to be ravished by Tall, Dark and Handsome?

Perfectly sized for your lunch break, though you might want to be sure the AC is running. Holy hot boysecks, Batman!!

Well, wasn't that just a sweet little morsel of dirty fun.

This is a great short story about a "moment" in Lee and Tony's relationship. The story focuses on Lee and what Tony has given him permission to do and Lee's anticipation is palpable. I love these kind of stories, this one felt complete and even though it's a short I felt like I really understood the characters and how they worked.

The story is very visual and I loved the descriptions of the setting, the colors and the little defining thing

Hot damn, that was hot!! Way to go Nico. You never cease to amaze me.

Jo's review pretty much sums up exactly how I felt before and after reading Sex and Candy. I too should have known better than to doubt the very talented Nico Jaye.

I will add this though, Nico writes MM gay sex as good as the best gay male authors! What, you say? You heard me right, the sex is scorching hot and very realistic.

Recommended for a quick pick-me-up. It will definitely leave you with a big smile on your f
Another great little story by Nico Jaye!

This one is sweet, mixed with a whole lotta sexy. I love stories where they take place while the relationship is already on its legs.
Now, I don't like any sort of D/s or BDSM kink, and this is the lightest, sexiest, most enjoyable kind of kinky that I do enjoy.

Nico is so good at writing sex scenes, that I won't go into detail just how good. Because I'm a lady and ladies don't do that. *Cough*

Overall, great read, perfect for a quick little literary romp in
Hard Candy

Although I love Nico Jaye and her smuffy stories, I've been avoiding Hard Candy for years. Why? Because that original cover with the teenage boy licking a lollipop like a much younger boy creeped me the hell out (like, so much that I couldn't even bring myself to read the blurb). Now that there's a shiny new cover, however, I thought it was time to give it a try.

And HOT DAMN am I glad I did!

Kinky roll play? Light dominance? Sex in a public place? A hint of daddy kink? Don't mind if

~Review for the expanded, second edition, which includes the new prequel story "Candy Rain"~

This was a piece of candy. I really liked Sex and Candy , and even more, its sequel, Candy Rain . It's the perfect choice, if you 're looking for something short, light, and sexy.

Sex and Candy---3.75 stars
This reads more like a bite-sized erotica novella. With his boyfriend's permission, Lee visits the Hard Candy club, for a wild night out. There, he meets an enigmatic man, who's more than willi

Sex and Candy...what more could a girl want...
'Sex and Candy' is a short sexy story...seriously sexy folks we're talking I might have blushed a bit while reading this one.

In the interest of being totally honest I received a copy of this book from the author as a gift not because she wanted a review good or bad from me, but because she is a lovely and kind human being who wanted to give me something to read on my plane trip home to attend a funeral. Nico, you did it. You gave me a story to re

That's a mighty big sucker you got there...

why yes, yes it is. ;)

There once was a boy named Lee who was in love with a bear named Tony.
Lee was happy wrapped in Tony's big burly arms, but missed his clubbing freebird days. Tony gives Lee a night.
A night to fly again.
It's dirty & sweet, kinky & adorable and I know those combinations don't make sense. But it's true.

trust me, it's lollipop lickin' good.

I hesitated to read this book for the longest time. I bleeping love Nico Jaye’s writing so much, and this book is out of my comfort zone of reading. You know when you read a book blurb by your favorite author and it does not sound like your cup of tea.. that sinking feeling of disappointment and anxiety at not reading a book by them, because what if you don’t like it and have to give your fav (whispering) a low rating. If you don’t read it, you can’t be disappointed right? Wrong… I should have k ...more

A short, sweet read about Lee and his night at Hard Candy. Lee has a boyfriend who isn’t in to the BDSM scene and he misses the wild, carefree days of his youth... going out dancing, cruising for a one-night stand, no inhibitions. So Tony has given him permission for one night only. Very hot and sexy, some mild daddy kink, lots of dirty talk between a Dom and his slutty boy, and a surprisingly sweet ending! Loved it!

I believe that this is a second edition of the original story Sex and Candy, with the added bonus of a prequel: Candy Rain.

Our Nico Jaye may be a little smufflet but boy-oh-boy does she pack a punch – I’m sure I saw stars after reading her saucy, sexy sex scenes.

It’s short, she didn’t waste her words, she went for that finishing line like the pro she is, got that shiny gold medal/star she so richly deserved.

We start with Lee and Tony in the present, Tony agrees to allow Lee to go to Hard Candy (

Short but incredibly hot. So where exactly is this club, cos I wanna pay a visit....
Nico Jaye does it again and I can't wait to read her next offering.

It has been a year since Lee met Tony at the dance club Hard Candy. And while they might not have seemed an obvious pair, at first, they have learned and loved each other each step of the way in the past year. Now for one night Lee is going to be able to go back to Hard Candy and dance, drink, and fuck. For one night he is going to experience the thrill of the chase all over again.

And once he sets his eyes on Mr. Tall, Dark, and Sinful…well, Lee know exactly who he’s going to do all that sinning

Another extremely clever, sexy, yet somehow adorable read by the lovely Nico Jaye.
This book constantly has you on the edge of your seat, and leaves you wanting more of Lee and Tony.

Nico Jaye’s Sex and Candy, and its prequel, Hard Candy, are erotic. That’s it. And they don’t pretend to be anything else—they aren’t a deep exploration of Lee and Tony’s relationship; they aren’t an in depth look into the lives of the characters; they’re more a sexploratory fantasy for the couple, and a glimpse of the way they mutually consent to bring a little something different into their relationship.

The real surprise in these stories for me, without giving too much away here, is the explic

When I started reading and Lee was having his monologue in his head, I was all, ummmmm...last hurrah? Besides, he had Tony 's I'm sure it will be alright. But I was still side-eyeing. Then, the man.


I thought it would be but I second guessed myself there for a second but I was right. And all was lovely! <3
