Hot Candy #3

Dirty Princes

Rate this book
Once upon a time, there lived a princess called Brylee who had a cat and a steady job and her eye on a handsome prince.
But Prince Ryan refused to put out. So she baked cookies and buttered muffins, without any double meaning whatsoever, and saved her cherry for her prince.
Who was being difficult and not following the damn script.
Then Riddick walked through the door and ate her cookie.
Literally, okay? It was a good cookie, too, with chocolate chip.
Riddick is drop-dead gorgeous, but not a prince. Regardless, Brylee can’t fight that burning attraction.
Even when Ryan does a turn-about and starts showing interest in her, after all this time.
This isn’t how things were supposed to happen. She was supposed to get a prince, not get caught between a hot prince and a hunky pauper.
Come on.
Especially not when said prince and pauper can’t stand each other.
Brylee isn’t above letting two men fight for her. That’s the essence of a good fairytale, right? A fight, a winner, a grand wedding and a happily ever after.
It’s fine. After all, she doesn’t want them both.
At the same time. In her bed. Like, ever.

Brylee is a princess on a mission.
She had to:
1. find the perfect prince,
2. woo him with her cooking talent,
3. get married,
4. have sex,
5. live happily ever after and
6. fall in love

And all these plans need to happen in that particular order. i.e.:
1. there has to be only one prince – NOT TWO PRINCES

2. Her cookies should make the prince wipe for joy – NOT BREAK HIS TEETH

3. Any effort should lead to getting married – NOT HAVING JUST A BOYFRIEND TO HAVE FUN or (God forbid) TWO BOYFRIENDS TO HAVE FUN

4. Yes, sex is not that important. Unless we are talking about Brylees’ prince –SEX IS NOT A RECREATIONAL SPORT. AND YES BRYLEE IS SAVING HERSELF FOR HER PRINCE.


6. And the last thing she is interested in is falling in love. Falling in love would complicate things – FALLING IN LOVE IS NOT IMPORTANT FOR HER HAPPILY EVER AFTER.

Brylee is bound to fail big time because:
1. Two handsome princes will appear in her life. Ryan and Riddick.
“We’re your Filthy Princes.”
“We’re your Dirty Princes.”

2. She is will be a disaster in baking
“I find a small cardboard box decorated with hearts under some paperwork in front of my computer, and my heart misses a beat, thinking it might be from Brylee…
Inside are little black things that look like charcoal – or maybe fossils? I sniff one, and I am surprised to discover there’s a faint scent of cinnamon to them.”

3. Oh well, having two boyfriends is a better decision than getting married:
“I stare resolutely ahead at the road, not looking at either of my boyfriends.
Which they are. Officially. I asked them.
They said yes at the same time.”

4. Oh well, who cares in the end about Brylee’s virginity:
“I doubt I’m much of a virgin. I did a lot of ballet as a kid. You know…all these splits.”

5. The happily ever after will have to wait a bit:
“Okay, between him and Ryan, they’ve set out to break my heart.”

6. Whenever someone in my romance books says that she/he will never fall in love, I laugh out loud with all my heart. Yes, sure… just wait:
“I love you.” The words are out before I can stop them. “So, fucking much. Both of you.”

The sex scenes are important in this book and they cover a lot of pages. And they are HOT.
Ryan and Brylee. HOT
Riddick and Brylee. HOT
Ryan and Riddick. EXTRA HOT
Brylee, Ryan and Riddick. SIZZLING HOT

But mostly I loved the humor. There are just funny moments all over the book – mostly created by innocent, sweet, princesslike Brylee.
There are also many push and pull emotional moments – mostly created by Ryan and his secrets that just cannot let him be happy.
Riddick although he has his own family problems and his self-doubts, he knows what he wants. He was a joy watching him trying not to get crazy with Brylee and Ryan’ problems.

Overall I had a great, enjoyable Saturday evening with this book!

P.S After careful consideration and some deep thought, I have decided to upgrade my rating to 5 stars ;)

What a surprisingly good read. This book bought a huge smile to my face and I thoroughly enjoyed it, for one reason Brylee . Brylee is dense and a little dumb but so sweet and well natured at the same time. All the antics and plans to hook her prince are hilarious.

"Sorry!" I drop both dumbbells to the floor to rush to his aid, and he dances away from them, hissing.
"You're a public hazard, woman."
"I do what I can. Are you hurt?"

This one has a similar plot to the first two in the Candy Boys series. One brooding dark, mysterious guy 'Riddick', one athletic jock type who wants to deny his feelings 'Ryan' and one sassy, funny as hell girl 'Brylee'. I loved all Brylees attempts at cooking too.

 photo burntcookies_zpsqpzna1pd.gif

To be honest I think this could have been shortened by about 20% mainly Ryan's chapters. I understand his intentions to hold off on a relationship but the repetition of his emotions just wasn't needed and seem to bring the book down as the other characters POV's were really good. I was not very keen on the way he treated the others either, regardless of his motives or excuses.

 photo handonchest_zps78a8x6qo.gif

I would have loved to see these three get together earlier in the book so we got to read a little more 'action'. All in all a good light read, maybe the best in the series for me. The only problems for me was the length and the push and pull is very real in this one, at times I wanted to slap someone at the same time who wouldn't want to be in the middle of that manwich!!

I really need to stop listening to my friends...
Even though I hated the first two books in this series, they told me this third one is better and I would love it.
I'm a glutton for punishment, it seems.

This book has one nauseating heroine, a weak/non-existence plot, and two BORING-as-fuck heroes.

The heroine thinks she's quirky and charming but the author obviously tried too hard to make her "funny?" And "charming...?" And failed.

She just ends up sounding dumb with her stupid, "quirky" one-liners...

Like... No.

Avoid this one.

This was hilariously entertaining through out the characters' humor and antics implemented with steamy hawt mfm and mm, mmf action...

Sigh, what's there not to like!

But somehow, all of it rolled into a mix gave out less serious tone to the who story which felt a bit "off" as a contradictory to the somewhat "dark & heavy" issues that characters coped with!

Nonetheless, i enjoyed myself *wink* while reading it...and only reading it!


Yeah, I liked it alright...

well, you KNOW what I liked...duh?

Dirty Princes (Hot Candy 3#) is by author Jo Raven.
Release Date: March (coming soon)
Read: March 12, 2017
My Rating: 5
Cover: 5 (reveal coming soon)
POV: First-person alternating perspectives by three main characters
Series: Hot Candy: #1 Candy Boys; #2 Candy Ever After; #3 Dirty Princes

As with any Jo Raven book, I am very impatient for the releases. Especially when I know it's coming soon. Also, I have been known (often) to stop what I am currently reading and start her book. Jo Raven is a one-click author for me. I do not need to know what the book is about before reading them. I have been a fan of her writing all the way back to Asher, which was the first book I read.

With this series, Hot Candy, not only do we get her imperfect, often times emotionally broken characters, but there is humor to balance out those moments you want to cry.

Dirty Princes feature three main characters. This is a menage romance. Brylee, Riddick and Ryan. I loved all three of these soulful characters. Each has their own personality, and their own emotional issues, past and present. Brylee, Riddick and Ryan didn't start off as a trio and there was some angst and even a bit of animosity but they were perfect for each other. I loved how, despite their need for each other, they always considered feelings. And their intimate moments were smoking hot!

There was some angst. Riddick was dealing with an addicted mother and a younger brother with his own issues. Ryan was dealing with his own issues that were fearful and emotional and not revealed immediately. Brylee is just fighting for her planned-out happily ever after. And it's not going as 'planned." But Brylee is a fighter; she perserveres no matter the amount of set-backs.

As this sweet, sexy, passionate and oftentimes humorous story unfolds, I stayed engaged and engrossed in every moment. Jo Raven is a very talented writer. She leaves nothing out of her story; you'll smile, laugh, cry, get frustrated and then be so damn relieved when the HEA comes. So worth the angsty wait. All of the 'feels' are there.

Dirty Princes was book three in this series. I wasn't the biggest fan of Brylee in the first two books. She was very opinionated and flighty. However, after reading Dirty Princes, she more than redeemed herself for me. In fact, this book was my favorite of the three books so far. I say so far because I am hoping it is not the end. There is still Riddick's brother Xavier and Brylee's friend Simone who I hope will get their own book, whether it is with each other or or not. And if I know Jo, she won't leave us hanging. She is a master at tying up lose ends and always wanting more.

*I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this novel. My opinions are honest and unbiased.

Brylee, Ryan & Riddick

A sexy menage, with m&m and mfm action.

Great characters with humor, mainly from Brylee who is Candy's best friend from the previous books in this series.

Although this is a light, sexy read there are deeper back story's to each characters and ongoing issues other than the relationship which is something I am used to reading from Jo Raven giving the plot a deeper meaning and allowing the reader to know the characters inside and out as the story is told in multiple pov's.

I can't say I loved this series M&M is not my choice of read it's a completely different genre of its own & I have a kindle full of books to choose from.

I love Jo Ravens books, the Inked Brotherhood series, Riot, this series not so much, it's like reading a different author & I follow this author due to previous works, that being said I'm not much of a romcom reader either so it's down to preference.

If you like a hot read with menage action, fun characters with a plot that also has deeper meanings at times then no doubt you will love it.

Arc gratefully received for review purposes

A seriously Hot trilogy by Josephine. Brylee is spunky, funny and full of attitude, when she sets her eyes in the "Prince" Ryan, things go ....well nowhere. She wants him, he wants nothing to do with her
Playing hard to get much !!!
Riddick meanwhile is lusting after Brylee.
When Ryan confronts him, the chemistry doubles....no triples in size and it leads to some hot, scorching off the charts manages.
It's really hilarious and sexy read
Highly recommend

Dirty Princes is an erotic romantic comedy with an in depth story, some angst, hot MM/MMF/MFM scenes and a ton of laughs. Dirty Princes is Brylee's story of how and with whom she finds her happily ever after. I suggest reading Candy Boys first since Brylee is first introduced there. Reading that one first will enhance the reading experience of Dirty Princes. I loved this story! Brylee is quirky with a capital Q but incredibly sweet and lovely. As you learn in the first book, she's obsessed with finding her Prince Charming. You get to read all about her obsession here and see it morph and grow into something different, something more. I don't want to give too much away because that will ruin your reading experience. However know this, as the cover and title suggest, she doesn't get one prince, she get's TWO.

I won an arc directly from the author. Dirty Princes is expected to release on March 24, 2017.

I've read the first two books in the series and I really enjoyed them so when I heard there was going to be a third but, I got really really excited. This author is able to write books that I thoroughly enjoy and I couldn't wait to see what this one was going to unleash.

Ryan was great. He was hot and cold, but in the end he was sexy and just amazing!

Brylee's mine was a super funny place to be. I really enjoyed all her internal dialogue.

Riddick had his own issues, but deep down he was this awkward, cute, sweet, amazing guy.

I love this Authors ability to write these three some romances but at the same time they have deeper stories underneath all the sex. This story was about these characters overcoming what it takes to be together.

Overall; I loved it. The story was sexy, with a slow burn romance, deep heartfelt life lessons, and so much more! So if your not a prude and want to get a little dirty with two amazing guys and a tough as nails, funny heroine, then this book is for you! PA, I loved seeing the trio from the first 2 books in the series! 5 stars #2OCCJD

Seriously am LOVING the Hot Candy series!!!

Although I've always enjoyed Jo's other series - like the Inked Brotherhood, etc - I am finding that her writing in this series is exactly what hits the 'sweet spot' for me. Her take on menage relationships is engaging and realistic but still full of hotness! As always there is an element of angst to the book (Hello - It wouldn't be a Jo Raven book without it) but it isn't as 'in your face' as with her other novels. I found it to be more nuanced and less dark - which I personally find more enjoyable to read!

In this book Brylee has her life planned out - this is what she has always found to work - and why change a formula if it works?? So when she meets Ryan at her workplace and determines that he is the man for her... even if he doesn't agree! She has set her sights on him and has her plan to make him realize that they are destined to be together. (We saw the first of this in the 2 earlier books in the series) Cue MANY hilarious 'accidental' meetings, baked 'offerings' (read: burnt) and Eau de Garlic to catch his attention!

Of course, her plan definitely does not call for a 3rd player and so her attraction to the most unsuitable Riddick is something to put out of her mind and ignore. Of course life does not work that way... she is inexplicably drawn to him too... but there is no way that she can have BOTH, right??!!

Told in parts by all 3 main characters, watch as they navigate through life, their own personal demons and form a bond and relationship with each other.

This can be read as a standalone but I HIGHLY recommend that you read both Candy Boys and Candy Ever After - just for enjoyment alone but also to get a glimpse of Brylee before this story.

No cheating, a virgin heroine, HEA and plenty of 3 way hotness!!

Let me start by saying that Jo Raven has been and continues to be one of favorite authors. Her ability to take a character full of trials as well as tribulations (young, abused, neglected, health issues) and help them find their value (HEA) attracts and maintains my dedication to her books. With this understanding, I will state that I was not sure how I felt about all the characters at the very beginning of “Dirty Princes” with most of my uncertainties revolving around Brylee, the heroine of this story. Let me backtrack a bit by saying this story is about Brylee (female), Ryan (male), and Riddick (male) and I didn’t have any issues with the threesome concept, in fact that was intriguing to me. My questions with Brylee revolved around her intended clueless (though humorous) behavior which made me not really get her personality. I will say as I continued to read, I became aware of the brilliance of Jo’s writing specifically in regards to the Brylee character. She drew me in by adding well thought-out tidbits of information. This allowed me to see a wider scope of the story which yes, continued to be placed with humor and what I now see as strategically placed obscurity. As I learned more about the details of each character I fell a little more in love and became there champion. I don’t think it could be a Jo Raven book without some heartache thrown in, which it was there and she tricked me a bit with how intense and unexpected some of it was especially after all the sarcastic humor. I would be amiss if I didn’t add that this book lived up to its threesome status with lots of hot and steamy interactions between the characters. It was definitely the icing on the cake to this often humorous and very touching story. This book is a great addition to the Jo Raven’s collection. It can be read as a stand-alone but if you wanted more information on some of the supporting characters reading the Candy Boys/Candy Ever After books will add to their story. I absolutely LOVED, LOVED, LOVED that Dylan and Rafe from the Inked Brotherhood Series (one of my all-time favorite series) are mentioned in this book. This book is a definite must read. Happy Reading

Reviewed on behalf of Amo and Sarah’s Book Corner

5 Stars!!!

If I could give more than 5 stars I totally would!!! I loved this story.

Brylee has her fairy-tale planned out in her head, she will meet her Prince, win him over through her cooking, they will get married and live happily ever after. She has decided that Ryan is her Prince and sets out to win him over.

Ryan has always kept people away, after the death of his mother he decided it was easier to not let anyone get close then they won’t be upset if he died. He didn’t count on Brylee trying to get through his walls though.

Riddick has not had an easy life; his Mum and Dad fight all the time and his Mum has had so many overdose’s he has lost count. He is pretty sure nothing good is ever going to happen to him. Then he meets Brylee.

Brylee is so sure she wants Ryan and only Ryan, but when she starts having feelings for Riddick too what will happen? When Riddick also starts to have feelings for both Brylee and Ryan things get even more complicated, and can Brylee and Riddick figure out what is troubling Ryan before it’s too late?

This book is HOT!!! The characters are brilliant and it is such an easy book to read, I got carried away reading so many times at work I’m surprised I didn’t get fired! Loved that we got to see some of Candy, Jet and Joel too. Cannot wait for more of this series.

Jo Raven never lets you down with her new books and she does it again with Dirty Princes! Brylee has this perfect idea of how her future is going to turn out, if only she could get her prince to notice her. Ryan has been her crush for so long, but she continues to find herself being turned down by him. Then comes Riddick, her best friend's boyfriend's cousin, and she is drawn to him even if she tries to deny it because she thinks she is supposed to end up with Ryan. Now comes her plan to get Ryan to notice her, although at first it doesn't seem to be going well. A "chance" meeting between Ryan and Riddick brings an attraction to each other as well as their attraction to Brylee(even if Ryan tries to fight it). These three can light up the pages and still tug at your heart when Ryan keeps trying to push the other two away. When the whole truth is revealed the three will grow closer than they ever imagined. While Brylee thought she was to end up with her Prince Charming she finds that her dirty princes are even better than what she thought she wanted. I couldn't put this book down from the first page until the end. Thank you Jo Raven for these amazing characters you continue to bring to life in your books!

I am such a big fan of Jo's writing and this series hasn't disappointed!
I really enjoyed the first two books in the series and to read Bylee's story has been the icing on the cake!
You meet these characters in the previous books and can tell that there is a sexual attraction between them but all three characters have problems or history that stops them from acting on their feelings.
Brylee is a funny characters who is so innocent in her sex life but has the dirtiest mind going for a virgin, but she knows what she wants and is determined to get it, that's until Riddick shows her his and let's her explore his body without taking it too far. She ends up so confused because he's not the Prince she had set out to get but she finds she wants him just as bad!
Ryan has a very sad past and is struggling with his condition that he feels he has no option but to push them away, but thankfully they don't give up on him.
I'm glad that the stories ended as they did but I'm sad knowing that I won't read anymore about these fabulous characters!

Dirty Princes was a fun and dirty read.

I had a hard time decided what number of stars to give this book. I will say that I loved loved loved the last half of the book. When the three of them were in the middle of their dance of realizing what and how they felt for each other.

I liked that even though each of the characters had their own sucky thing going on, they were there for the others. Whether it was planned or born out of necessity, they assisted or search out or was a shoulder for one of them to use for comfort. This was fun to read because it showed the different characters and how they react in crisis. Once the three of them got together, it was hot. I mean explosive.

The part I had the hardest time with and almost quit reading multiple time was in the beginning with Brylee’s obsession with Ryan and the different plans she had with him. Maybe because I am older, I found this to be SO immature and childish, I hated reading it. During this time, all I could think was run Ryan run!!! I felt like I was reading about a girl who was still in junior high. She didn’t deserve either guy YET in my opinion because she needed to grow up first. I am really glad I decided to continue because it got really good!

OMG a fairytale in the making. This super swoony story is the tale of Brylee and her princes: Ryan and Riddick. If you've read Candy Boys then you've met Brylee and Riddick. But no worries if you didn't, but you definitely should cuz that book is way too hot to miss!!!
Anyways, Brylee is super fun and cute as a button. Her innocence bring sunshine and rainbows to an otherwise down story. Both princes have some heavy stuff going on in their lives. It takes Brylee's eternal determination to bring everyone together. And when they get together, there is great BIG FIREWORKS!! did I mention things are BIG. Riddick and Ryan are super hot in their own ways. Very distinct characters that round out the circle. Dreamy Disney prince, check. Dark and mysterious with a heart of gold, check. Sure both have their douchewaffle moments, but love always wins.

So on a scale of hotness, definitely 5 bright BIG stars!!!
I also loved the depth of characters, Jo Raven really goes deep with them and explores their pasts and how that impacts the present.

So yeah, I loved it. There were some parts that were a bit long and drawn out, but that just paints a whole and complete picture. I can't wait to read more from Jo Raven ❤❤❤

This author is new to me and oh my! I loved the book.Ryan and Riddick are peculiar in their own way, hot and cold or awkward but deep down you can see that they have their own story to tell. Brylee is funny in her own way and I love her. The ménage scenes are HAWT af. This author took the characters by the horn and had the ability to depicted romance and stories beyond the face to another level. This author has the ability to perfectly hit that sweet spot and naughtiness at the same time. I am definitely interested in reading other books by this author. This book has it all- humor, romance, HEA and naughtiness. What more do you want?

Hilarious, heartwarming and seriously hot! I laughed out loud at Brylee's antics and her planning to get Ryan's attention even when those plans didn't turn out quite the way she wanted. My heart broke for Riddick and the family issues he continuously was faced with and the way he took responsibility to try and fix. Ryan's reticent to making any kind of commitment to anyone kept me turning the pages to find out "why". The love that brought these three together and taught them they weren't alone in dealing in life was eye opening. If menage relationships make you uncomfortable this book isn't for you, however, if you are open minded to such you will love this story. Jo is an amazing artist who pulls you into the lives and feelings of her characters. I was honored to read and reviewed this book as an ARC.

I really loved this book from the very first page to the last. It rivals Candy Boys in my affection which is a huge recommendation as that remains one of my favourite Jo Raven books. I knew the characters briefly from Candy Boys but I was totally caught up in their back stories and the contrast between them all. I fell for Riddick, hook line and sinker and the James Dean reference helped clinch it for me! Brylee really was 'rain and flowers' with Riddick being 'a jungle dark scent'. It took me longer to connect with Ryan but that is a sign of a good story as you feel yourself getting caught up in their personalities and their flaws and weaknesses along the way. Jo writes beautifully and the ménage sex scenes were some of the most erotic and beautiful I have read. I also loved the kooky names she gave to each chapter, that was a nice humorous twist. All in all, I have no hesitation in giving it 5 stars. It works as a standalone though I would recommend reading a Candy Boys first as that is awesome

I love this book! Brylee, Ryan and Riddick are all wonderful characters and they are very well developed. The storyline is great and flows flawlessly. This story has everything you could ever want in a book, humor, love, hot sex, twists & turns, and ménage. It's a must read and I highly recommend it.

This series keeps getting better & better !

Dirty Princes is a 5 Star read for me and the best in the series so far, I loved Brylee in the other books and was rooting for her to bag her man/men.

Jo Raven made me laugh throughout this book so many times her writing skills for comedy are brilliant, the gripping storyline and the twists were epic, the sex was off the charts hot and hit the spot every time. Jo, also made me cry and my hate for a certain R turned into heart break and love.

Oh and one star that can not be forgotten is Fluff and her sparkly butt hole!

Highly recommend read - and to get the full picture I would start from the beginning by reading Candy Boys #1.

I truly hope this is not end of this series, I for one need more Hot Candy.

Brylee is one unique girl and she needed two unique guys to complete her. Her antics made me laugh and wonder what she has planned next to catch Ryan's eyes. The guys are just too cute. Hopefully we will see more of them.

Where do I start? This book hit me straight in the chest. I fell in love with all three main characters on the first page…
Brylee: the hilarious dreamer
Ryan: the standoffish prince
And Riddick: the outsider with a heart of gold
I didn’t know what exactly I could expect from this book, even though Jo Raven is a favorite f mine and her books normally meet my taste. This one had less torture and more humor, but it was still typically Jo Raven.
I loved how the deepness of the characters got more and more visible throughout the book and finally came to the grand finale. Seriously, character development was amazing and I was almost sad that I finished the book.
The writing style was exceptional as always: I loved how the different parts had an intro that read like a fairy tale.
I think you can say: I just loved the book :D

Dirty Princes by Jo Raven is another great book in The Hot Candy#3 Series.
This book is a stand alone, but for better understanding you could read the other books first.

Meet Brylee, Ryan and Riddick.
Brylee is Candy´s best friend. Ryan is Brylees co-worker and Riddick Connors is Jets cousin. Jet is Candys boyfriend next Joel.
Ryan wants Brylee and Riddick. Riddick wants Brylee and Ryan. And Brylee WANTS Ryan and Riddick.
Everything could be sunshine and roses. Ha- as if ! This is a Jo Raven book. There is nothing as it seems.
There are twists and unexpected turns. Things I never had dreamt of.
I will not spoiler here, let me only say so much, every single one of these people has issues and secrets and they have a lot of work to do.

I love Candy, Joel and Jet´s books. And I love this book.
I could feel feel the pain, the uncertainty and the love they carry . I could feel the characters emotions in the words.
I laughed, I cried, I greatly enjoyed reading Dirty Princes.
I Highly recommend this book.
5 Stars and Thank you Jo Raven !!

Wow, this is one amazing story. This is the 3rd book in this amazing series, and I always felt that Brylee would have quite a story to tell, and how right I was. I laughed throughout this book at Brylee, and her inner thoughts, as well as cried for Ryan and Riddick. Both of these guys are sexy, hot, loyal, sweet, and totally amazing. They all have issues to overcome, as well as trials & tribulations, but what a story this is!
This story is packed with humour, twists & turns, hot sex, and love. I have always been a lover of Jo’s books, and they just seem to get better and better. I cannot wait to read whatever she brings to us next. In my opinion, this story is so much better than the 5 star rating allowed.
I voluntarily reviewed an ARC of this book!

The problem with this book is it ended!
Absolutely loved this, the humour is fantastic. I choked, laughed out loud and threw out a few smirks.
Love Brylee she really comes to life in this book unicorns and all!
As we know Brylee is Candy's best friend who has been chasing Prince Ryan for years with no results, then enters Riddick, Jets (or as i like to call him James Franco) cousin and it all gets a wee bit nasty....But all in a good way!
This book really gives Candy's boys a run for their money and it's got a few cameo's from our favourite inked boys.
