edit 30 4 16 I will not be reading Selfie even though I bought it from Riptide I understand that the author has pooped again and rubbish has appeared in that book which Riptide s owners have now publicly agreed is not acceptable in any way, shape or form The author has been requested to amend her original work I can only say Adios Amy, it s been a blast but all good things have definitely In book 3 of Amy s Candy Man series, Lollipop, all of the characters that I loved from the two initial books are back and the new story fits seamlessly into the Candy Heaven universe In this latest installment, 28 y.o NYC native, Ezra Kellerman shows up in Sacramento with hopes that he isn t too late, but when you snooze, you lose, which Ezra immediately realizes, as Rico is now happily in love with Derek, his true soulmate Rico does still care what happens to Ezra, though, even if he has moved on, so he sets Ezra up with a place to stay and a guardian, of sorts, in Candy Heaven employee Miguel.Miguel is still finding his own footing, and feeling a teeny bit butthurt, after his small startup business failed, so the last thing that he needs or wants is the responsibility of helping someone else put their life back together Then as Ezra and Miguel begin spending nearly every day together, Miguel slowly changes his tune about the burden of spending time with the adorable, yet broken and sexy Ezra.For me, this was not only a story abo That was like reinventing sex for me I didn t know it came like that Yeah that was like a whole other flavor, Miguel agreed Like lollipops, Ezra said Like if you just taste them, they re supposed to just taste like cherry But if you believe they re than that, they really taste like rainbows Ezra came to Sacramento to find Rico Instead, he found Miguel Miguel who shows him the ropes, hugs him when he cries, and takes him home to meet his mom Miguel, who cares and nurtures and is always around Miguel is Ezra s person, just like Ezra is his Jake the cat wants Ezra too, but that s mostly just for petting At 28, Ezra doesn t even know who he is He just knows he doesn t belong in New York and has to get away from his homophobic, racist, controlling father In California, beastly summer heat notwithstanding, he finds a HOME Yeah, he sleeps on Finn and Adam s couch and works at a candy shop for minimum wage, but he s FREE The burn here is slow, but I didn t mind This book is as much about finding your place in the world as it is about discovering real love, that one in a million guy who is there for you, the guy who takes you to Disneyland along with his little nieces and nephew And you actually have FUN Miguel is like the ying to Ezra s yang When Miguel gets possessiv Edited and expanded Feb 11 2016Leaving below my original review, that admittedly is not much of one It was just me venting my feelings And I stand by them still I ve actually noticed that only if I m pissed as hell am I marginally listened That s sad as fuck.But seeing as I didn t really review this book, this is my attempt to do so I can t promise I won t feel enraged again Because the truth is that haven t stop feeling the anger simmering under the surface.The book starts with an Author s Note that is offensive and racist.First, Amy Lane introduces the friend , that discourse weapon that every single racist in the world uses I won t expand on it, but go ahead and look up and LEARN what s so so wrong about a white person leaning on a PoC to argument and excuse whatever point they want to make The name of the friend is also worth noting since she s used it in basically every single fucking book she s written with a Latino character.Second, Amy Lane compares her childhood experience to those of working kids andlamentsthat she wasn t as self assured as the children who ha Yeah You know Uh, lollipop kisses he s got em Miguel Darrin nodded soberly They don t just taste like cherry, he said, completely serious They taste like the whole rainbowYou know what this is This is angst in disguise Heartbreak served with candy and lollipops and bubble gum You re so sneaky, Amy Lane Even your fluff makes me want to cry But it hurts soooo good So, yes, my heart broke a little while reading this book.For Ezra Who came back to Rico, but Rico was taken Who tore his old life apart with his bare hands literally Who may have money in the bank, but is happier to crash on Adam and Finn s couch, with Jake, the cat, on his chest, and work a job at Candy Heaven for a big rainbow Lollipop as a reward.And for Miguel Because he failed to see how magnificent he is Because he thought he was invisible, nobody s person and the least favorite puppy Until Ezra.Because Ezra remembered his name.It takes a while for Ezra and Miguel to come together Because they became friends first, and then fall in love with each ot Lollipop is the third book in the Candy Man Series and starts off directly where book two ends Ezra finally freed from his father has come to win back Rico only Rico has moved on Rico has entrusted the gang to take care of Ezra Just as in the previous books, Amy Lane has delivered another lovely, feel good story that will steal your heart.My highlights Rico Hot damn I loved everything about him His strength, loyalty, and gentleness I ve got another Book Boyfriend to add to my list Ezra Despite his past hurts like a phoenix he rises from the ashes He brought out my maternal instincts, and I wanted to protect him along with the rest of the gang Relationship development I love a great friends to lovers tale, and Amy did an outstanding job in this aspect of the story The gang This series is a perfect example of why I love series It s such a joy to catch up with past characters and to see where they re at in their life and relationships Steam Um HOLY SMOKES This is a low angst, feel good story The pace of the story was smooth and effortless I was emotionally satisfied with where she left the boys As far as negatives I got nothing.
