Overview

She’s drop-dead gorgeous. But one of the guys she’s met online might be a stone-cold killer. A chilling game of lies, secrets, and manipulation awaits in R. L. Stine’s dark, sexy thriller—now an MTV original series starring Victoria Justice.
 
Lindy Sampson is a beautiful twenty-three-year-old New Yorker with an unusual problem: She’s too beautiful, and guys are intimidated by her. Her roommate suggests Internet dating and writes a personal ad for Lindy, calling her “Eye Candy.” The responses pour in. Suddenly, Lindy is dating four guys at once—and having the time of her life. Until she gets a terrifying note that warns: “Don’t say no, Lindy. Keep going out with me. I’ll mess you up if you ever say no.”
 
Which one of her admirers is a deadly freak? Lindy is now forced to say yes to everything the four men ask of her—dates, invitations to spend the night, anything. From the East Village to the Hamptons, panic and paranoia shadow her every move. Lindy suspects everyone, even the one person she thought she could trust. But Lindy Sampson doesn’t know the half of it—and what she doesn’t know could kill her.

Don't listen to the review below. the only way it was predictable is if you read ahead. Eye Candy was suspenseful, and kept you guessing. Definately one of the best R. L. Stine books.

I'm a long time fan of R.L. Stine, ever since goosebumps. I really enjoyed the writing his characters were very realistic. But the story as a whole didn't make sense to me. The ending was very surprising but was it plausible? I don't know. Well I'm still a fan, despite the flaws I was hooked by the story, very relevant for the times.

Good read until the end. The ending was unexpected but nobody actually died.

In eye candy, beautiful lindy is hunted down by a man. Lindy's husband dies and a year later she is living with two other female friends and dating online. Lindy is more then beautiful young lady that wants someone to make her happy but now that she started dating online, she gets these creepy phone calls from one of the guys. As Lindy starts to get a clue who it is, Lou, Mary Annie¿s boyfriend, starts approaching her in a sexual matter. For example, outside the apartment one night Lou grabs Lindy breasts and starts trying to make out with her. And what¿s worst then that, at work Lindy¿s stupid co-worker starts stealing all her credit and work. For example, she was suppose to print up a copy of the playwright for Lindy but `accidentally¿ forgot which got Lindy into trouble, again. ------------- My favorite part of this book was the ending because it seemed like the ending would never come. Do not get me wrong, this book is awesome but it was too long for the story line. The story just drug on and on, for example, like when it explains in great detail of the dates she went on. R.L.Stine is a great author but I would say this is not at all his best work. I liked the storyline a lot, the suspense of seeing who the creepy-dater had me feeling I had butterflys in my stomach.

I love this book but it had some very bad elements in it and very foul language. I am not used to this from R.L Stine. I have always read Fear Street books. I think it has a great story line but I am ten years old and I Don't want to hear about this stuff. I am a Christian 'shun me if you must' and this book was totally inapropriat for what I believe as an individual but it was a great book and very unpredictable.

I like this book because, it's where I was at in life. Even though it was fiction- my life was just as real except no crazy fans ready to kill. I love R. L. Stines- I always feel like a kids when I read his books since I was so hooked on his Goosebump series!

I finished this book in 2 days, it was really good. Talk about a suprise ending! After the first chapter, I was hooked!

I think R.L. Stine's attempt at an adult book was pretty successful. It had the atmosphere of his other novels, with more wit. I liked that there was more adult themes for a more mature audience. The suspense, in my opinion, was excellent. There were many twists and turns throughout the novel and it will keep you guessing. It was fast paced and you got to know all the characters really well!

This book was no different than the fear street novels that I read as a young teenager except for the foul langauage. It is just too predicitable, you just know whats gonna happen if you are a R.L. Stine fan.

I thought this book was really great. I have mever been the type of peorson ro sit down and just read a book. With RL Stines book Eye Candy i did. This book has unexspected things and chaange of events hapen. There are love hate relationhips and exsiting details. Not only does this book keep you reading it also keeps you wondering... who will she end up with which guys killing all theese girls and why would he do it over such little things. E personaly LOVED this book. I will Defanatly read this again. If you get tje chance to read this i recomend you to. This book showes a sign of much intalect. R. L. Stine is realu moving away rom the childrens books. He eve moves away from his usual Fear Street seiries. Me being 14 and loving thi book says alot i apretiate th thime yo have taken to reAd my reveiw and i thatnk you.

R.L Stine did a pretty good job writing this book. I loved the ending when he revealed that Shelly was a crazed writer, thinking that his works were reality. BUT, I did not like the very end when he shows up on the beach. That was VERY wierd and the worst part in the story.

When I began reading this book, I thought I had a grasp on what the writing style was going to be. However, shortly into the book, I figured out how wrong I was. This book is dull with description, dialogue, and character development. Instead of thought-provoking passages and vivid detail, it throws in some swear words and sex references and calls it advanced literature. The dialogue is also rough and harsh in the midst of situations that are quite the opposite. But when the book takes on a faster pace, I find that the author jumbles random thoughts together with needed information. Therefore, it is very hard to decipher what is actually important to the story, and what is just junk. The characters are the trash that you would find in a dark alley drinking and tossing around metal bats for fun. I do not connect, nor admire any of the traits that these characters possess. Furthermore, their qualities are shown through actions that can be interpreted in different ways. For example, they refer to their dates with derogatory terms and crude language. One may find this inappropriate, while somebody else may find it a good way to build up character. It depends on how moral of a person you are, and what you consider a friend. This book really graded on my nerves. R.L. Stine should know better. I hope not to come across a book of this quality again.
