(The McAdams Sisters 3.5 - A Lakeshore Candy Novella)

Candy Crumble (The McAdams Sisters, #3.5Contemporary romance has bleak pasts, previous entanglements, and second chances, because most everyone deserves a second chance at real love. This time Shannyn Leah does things a little differently. Candy Crumble is about a couple before their romance actually blooms. The prequel to Lakeshore Candy brings Abby McAdams into the spotlight of “pre-love” at a time when life is kicking her around from all directions and she is flailing about trying to find firm ground and balance. Abby is not the put-together woman that her sisters are and the bottom of a glass reflects another problem she has.

There’s a new guy in town, a reclusive, gruff man, Riley and his mysterious and standoffish ways are like a flashing beacon to Abby. Riley has a past he wants to forget and reaching out to this troubled woman is not something he is comfortable with, and yet …
He has tweaked her curiosity and she becomes determined to find out what makes this man tick and why he has her all wound up. Face it, everyone needs a friend and these two seem destined to at least be that.

Once again, Shannyn Leah has created a sweet read in her own unique way, spotlighting that backstory we never actually read about! Two people, adrift and hurting, find a common ground in friendship, can it grow into something more?

I received an ARC edition from Shannyn Leah in exchange for my honest review.
