    I really enjoyed this novel by Amaleka G. McCall. She can really write a story that gets under your skin! I found myself hooked from the dramatic first passages and the plot had me flipping the pages (well, in this case, scrolling down on my e-reader). I love the main character, 'Candy' Hardaway. I love how independent and strong she is despite the horrible past that she went through. I think in the end she realizes that the promise of revenge is sweet and romantic at first, but it quickly unravels out of her control. I'll admit that the surprise at the end really got me, I was not expecting that twist. I actually thought someone else was responsible, but I was completely mistaken. I love when I get surprised like that. I'm really happy that I have the sequel! I can't wait to read it. Amaleka G. McCall is really talented and I definitely want to check out more of her books.

    Hard as Candy ~ Not as Sweet

    Candice `Candy' Hardaway has been training to exact her revenge on the people who she believes made her an orphan. She's done her homework and has gotten close to the major players. Throw in an unexpected friendship and love interest and things become complicated.

    Candice's Uncle Rock has taught her survival techniques and his profession as a "cleaner." He knows the truth of her family's demise and he thinks he has hidden the details from Candice. He'll do anything to protect her. Add to that an undercover DEA agent and a major government conspiracy and you have an excellent page-turner.

    Amaleka McCall has impressed me again with "Hard Candy." She did a good job in keeping you intrigued. The ending tied up all the loose ends, except one, in my opinion. Good reading!
