Want to know the fastest way to screw up a sacred bond?

Have sex with your sister’s best friend and find out. I sure did.

I know, I know. It was a total dick move. Kelsa—my very vocal sister—never lets me forget that one golden rule. Hooking up with her best friend is a serious no-no.

Too bad I didn’t listen.

See, Renee Espada has always been "bad candy", a term Kelsa and

This book was off the hook crazy good. Wanting someone you know you shouldn’t have, the need, the desire you both have but an agreement between you and your sister to never mess around with her friends again is dangling above your head until that moment when the one you desire plants a kiss on you that ignites a fire deep down inside that you know is going to be nothing but trouble. This is what happens with Cam and Renee, not being able to control yourself and lie to your sister and best friend ...more

Really great story! Can be read as a stand alone, but there are a few instances where things happened in Drex and Kelsa's book that are vaguely glossed over here (in my opinion) so if your like me, you'll want to read Dirty Flirting (1&2) so you can grasp more of the big picture. Renee's relationship with her Mom touched my heart. It stirred up feelings that I don't like to think about, its definitely one of those books that you can see yourself in throughout. This author does a remarkable j ...more

This is part one of the Bad Candy series but can be read as a standalone. Cam and Renee's chemistry is off the charts but their relationship is off limits. Renee's his sister's best friend and messing with them is taboo. Sexy, steamy and sexual tension that explodes. Secret tryst and lots of drama. Well written with great characters and an entertaining story. I read a reader copy and voluntarily chose to write a review.

This book was so much fun to read! I can't wait to see how it all plays out in part two.
So Cam and Renee live together with his sister.. There's been attraction but neither crossed the line until now.. These two have the sexual tension and know exactly how to use it. Renee has been told what to do and who to date, neither is what she wants. She loves fashion design but wants more.. She wants to design her own stuff. Cam, brings out the passion and frustration in her. He makes her want more in l

Oh man, what a great freaking book. Bad Candy is definitely a must read. I was hooked from the beginning. Cam and Renee have so much sexual tension and the fact that Renée is Cam's sisters best friend made this one heck of a story. They know they shouldn't mess around with each other but that just can't help themselves. This book had the sweetness and sexiness to go with it. I'm definitely excited for part 2.. Job well done Ava Alise!!!

Wanting someone you know you shouldn't. The chemistry between the characters and the sexual tension was just enough. The storyline kept me interested and wanting more. I cant wait to read part 2.

Wow!! This was my first read from this author and let me tell you..... holy hotness!! I love this type of read, my sisters best friend, but I haven’t read many and so it was very refreshing.

A few aspects of this story was a little off for me such as Kelsa’s job profession... there are times when it’s talked about but we don’t really know what it is until the very end and that was a little annoying. Another one is the part about Kelsa’s boyfriend Drex has an ex of some sort; that whole thing con

I arrived late to reading this one before release day, but shouldn't have worried that I might not have enough time to get through it. Once I flipped the first few pages I couldn't stop reading!

Best friend's sibling is always an interesting trope. I tend to like it and this story is no exception. The author does a good job of incorporating the guilt associated with having feelings for someone you aren't supposed to, and yet being unable to deny and follow those feelings, regardless of the potent

Bad Candy is full of lust, passion.

Renee has recently been cheated on, by one of the men she thought that maybe was marriage material. Cam is the hot brother of her best friend, Kelsa. Now I love me a good forbidden romance, and this was enjoyable. But it was missing that urgency to want to finish. Renee and Cam have known each other for years, so it’s easy for them to fall into each other. There’s that rush of it being forbidden. His sister made him promise that he would never go for Renee. But

Loved this one. Ava did such a great job writing this one. You are introduced to Bella and Cam. These two are roommates but so much more. Cam is her best friend's brother and someone that Bella should not get involved with. Bella is Cam's forbidden candy. Someone that he should stay as far away from as possible. But one kiss changes everything between these two. This was a great well written book from beginning to end. I loved the characters and the chemistry. I cant want to see what is going to ...more

Bad Candy by Ava Alise is the first book I have read by her. Let me tell you I went in this blind. When I read the blurb I was brought to wanting to know there story. You have Can and Renee who fall for one another and have this amazing chemistry not only in bed but also outside. One problem only. Cam made a pact with his twin sister... and Renee well, she’s Cams twin sisters best friend, so what happens when you have to lie??? Well you’ll just have to find out. It had its steamy scenes and also ...more

Cam promised his twin sister he’d never mess around with another one of her friends after a major disaster with a cheerleader/friend in high school. He has kept that promise even though he has wanted his sister’s best friend and roommate since college until the day he and Renee met in the hall and she starts kissing him. Neither wants to hurt their sister/friend but these two can’t keep their hands off each other. Renee has the added pressure of an overbearing mother, a cheating ex boyfriend and ...more

Renee is living with her best friend Kelsa, when her best friend’s brother Cam moves in temporarily. The chemistry between them is off the charts but they know they need to deny it as any relationship between them is strictly off limits.

Agreeing to one weekend of hot fun to get each other to burn out the chemistry between them sounds like a foolproof plan and then they can revert back to friends on Monday. What could possibly go wrong?

Hot chemistry and a cliff hanger leaves us anxiously awaiting

Wow!!! What a great read!!! Cam had sex with a previous best friend of his sister's that did not end well and promised his sister her friends would be off limits. No problems with this until Cam moves in with his sister and her best friend renee. Sparks start flying between cam and renee and it isn't long before they give in and have hot steamy sex. They agreed to the one night and then forget and move on but they find they are unable to stop wanting each other. It does end on a cliffhanger but ...more

This a hot quick read. Kelsa and Cameron are brother and sister. They’ve always been close. But a bad thing happened when Cam was 17 years old and slept with Kelsa’s friend and ruined the friendship Kelsa had with her. So they call things that you shouldn’t want bad candy. Now Kelsa has a really great friend named Renee and Cam and Renee want each other but Cam knows she’s bad candy. Will they get together of course but for one weekend only??? It’s great that one weekend to get it out of their s ...more

Ok I read Dirty Flirting one and two and fell in love with this author! Renee is Kelsa’s best friend and roommate. Kelsa’s twin is temporarily staying with them. Cam is off limits but Renee wants him so bad. Cam is a photographer and somewhat of a player. He promised his twin sister he would stay away from her friends after a disaster in high school. But the temptation is getting stronger and Renee is not making it any easier. This book is hotter than hot! A fantastic book! I can’t wait for the ...more

I am volunteering to leave a review of this ARC book. This is my third book by Ava, and will absolutely not be my last. Not just because this is book one of a duet either. Her storytelling is wonderful, with wonderful characters, and wonderful sexiness. I don't think relationships with the best friend are taboo; but if the relationship doesn't work, it seems you'd lose a BFF! Renee and Cam are keeping their tryst a secret; but, for how long can they do that? Things are hot, and I think they'll g ...more

Bad Candy Part One is a fun read. It is nicely hot and steamy with enough tension to cut with a knife. How do you keeps hands off your sister’s roommate? She has been off-limits since twins Cam and Kelsa met Renee freshman year in college. However, can that crazy chemistry be denied? Read and find out as they are now adult roommates living in NYC. It was a great read and I look forward to part two of this story. I received an ARC copy of this book, and I am giving my honest review.

So hot! Renee and Cam were explosive together! Of course, they really shouldn't be together at all, because Renee is Cam's sister's best friend. But when someone says you can't have something, that just makes you want it more. Renee is the bad candy that Cam can't seem to get enough of, no matter how much he tries to avoid her. Will they be able to get it out of their system with just one weekend, or will they continue to play with fire and risk getting caught? I can't wait for the second book!
