Within the social hierarchy of a wealthy suburban high school, Delaney Troy is so superior to naive Samantha that she can't speak to him without provoking obscene taunts from his friends.
Delaney is gorgeous, but much of Samantha's fascination stems from his brazen honesty and bristling wit. His air of confidence inspires so powerful an interest he draws her in without even looking at her.
But how could she possibly date a guy like Delaney who insists he only wants to hook up -- and doesn't believe in love?
Will the scandalous truth about the circumstances of her conception threaten her happy home life?
Must she find a place in her life for an alarming new "father" just as she’s becoming an independent young woman?
LOVE and CANDY is a contemporary New Adult or Young Adult romance. It’s about a young woman’s coming of age and takes place in the sexually-charged environment of a posh high school. It doesn't shy away from the gritty details of her first serious relationship and deals with adult topics. Her love interest is a seriously tortured guy, far from a prince charming.
