ARC REVIEW : Tart and Sweet (Candy Man #4) by Amy Lane
In the Army, Robbie Chambers turned on his lover out of fear—and he hasn’t been able to live with himself since. Now he’s out of the Army but still trapped in the closet that brought on his most cowardly moment, and he starts to think he’ll never be able to fight his way free.
Until he sees Cy McVeigh. Beautiful and uninhibited, Cy is dancing on the boardwalk at Old Sac for no other reason than the moment called for it. Robbie not only joins in the dance but is smitten from the very beginning.
However, Robbie still has old business to clear up, and when he helps out a kid in need and comes face-to-face with the man he betrayed, he’s forced to come clean with himself. He can’t redeem his mistake if he’s still locked into his old patterns, and he won’t ever be worthy of Cy if he can’t earn Adam’s forgiveness. He’s going to need all the help he can get from the people at Candy Heaven in order to make things right with his past so he can have a future with Cy.
Tart and Sweet by Amy Lane
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Remember 'the bad guy' who broke Adam's heart two years ago in the army? Robbie? The one that came to Darrin and Ezra's vision? Yeah that guy.
The problem is, Robbie is not a bad guy. Sigh. He was afraid and had been a coward to admit to the world who he really is.
You know DADT is still 'there'. Too bad. It breaks too many heart. Including Adam's heart. Glad he finally found Finn, and the true love is there !
There's no doubt that Finn is Adam's true love, as Ezra and Miguel and Rico and Derek. The guys!
Now back to Robbie.
After one dance with the 'street dancer', Cyril, and broke up with 'girlfriend', the actual story begun.
There one thing Robbie owed Adam from their past life, forgiveness.
But, Adam is Adam, a big muscle giant shy Adam. Under protection of Finn and the whole bunch of Candy Heaven's family. But somehow, Finn is still Finn. He actually met Robbie before Adam.
Adam still thanked Robbie for being a 'hero', because, he helped Finn, his angel and everything.
So, forgiveness is easy. But not so much with Finn, his outraged was EPIC!
You know, Finn being Finn, overly dramatic for everything. But Adam, sigh...Finn is all he need.
So, Robbie need to stay away from them for a while.
Not by long, because Cy and Robbie were an item ever since the first met.
This one is definitely has a strong 'love at first sight' vibes.
But as much as I wanted to believe in Robbie and Cy, there's something's missing, but ignore that. Because this book is not just about Cy and Robbie , but family, family, family.
Actually, I really liked Robbie's father 'reaction' after Robbie's speech, it was kinda cute. Ha!
There's something touched my curiosity about who's Ro guy in Darrin's life, you know. They're probably have their own story, but I don't think Amy would write about them (I know the reason. Shh.)
Overall,I really liked this one. Not as much as I loved Adam and Finn's story (my favorite, of course).
This is entertaining, funny as usual, family (bunch of them), and so much love.
I'm gonna miss these guys so much ! Well done, Amy!
