Title: Candy Ever After
Author: Jo Raven
Genre: Menage Romance
“Candy, why is your bed so big?”
“… to fit my two boyfriends when we snuggle together at night.”
Only that’s my father asking, staring at the bed in question.
So yeah. Unruly Jethro and cocky Joel are now officially my boyfriends. My Candy Boys. I moved in with them, and I expected things to be tense, awkward. I was wrong. This feels so right, and well, hot. These boys are so hot.
But with college starting, Jethro returning to work at the bookshop, and Joel starting his own business, everything’s shifting. Not to forget the fact that Joel still hasn’t confronted his parents about our relationship, that Jethro is still recovering from his dad’s brutal attack, and that I feel insecure, well…
Wait a sec. Insecure? Come on, Candy. That’s BS. These boys love you.
Yeah, I know. The boys and me, we’re solid. However, doubt still lingers. I mean, Joel’s parents hate each other. Jethro’s dad killed his mom, for chrissakes—and my mom has acquired a sudden interest in sex toys and escort services.
So I wonder if true love really exists. Love that doesn’t fade over time. You know, the kind that withstands nightmares and bad jokes, unwashed dishes in the sink and lack of lube.
Yeah, that happened.
These boys own me. They’re sweet, sexy and caring—but will they break my heart, or is this our happily ever after?
From the very beginning this author had me smirking or grinning, then chuckling and at times laughing out loud! All of these things are a definite plus for me! If I’m reading a romantic comedy I like to enjoy a chuckle or too with the characters and you definitely do that with this story. For e.g. when Jet says this about his boss. “She’s pretty for a thirty-year-old with the personality of a sumo wrestler and the temper of a mad Chihuahua.” Great one liners!
This is the book that finishes Candy, Jet and Joel’s story. All have committed to a relationship together however there are some demons that interfere.
This is a quick and easy to read story that leaves wanting to read more from this talented author. There is more than humour in this book though. Some much deeper issues arise like personal insecurities that are easy to identify with because they are very real, other people’s perceptions and prejudices as well. All are handled smoothly but not in a fairytale manner.
I look forward to reading more from Jo Raven.

Candy Ever After was a perfect ending to this story. All 3 parties finally found their internal peace along with their relationship. They all came to terms with their sexualities along with explaining to their families who and what type of relationship they truly have with each other.
This was a great read from start to finish. I loved the silliness and chemistry between them all.
