Book Review: Ear Candy by M.E. Carter and Andrea Johnston

Todd Ear Candy Teaser_FLipped


Thanks for Andrea Johnston for an ARC of this book. As the norm, it doesn’t disappoint. I laughed so hard my sides hurt. The things Todd said and wore…completely hilarious. The pineapple and jingle balls t-shirts are hilarious.

Donna Moreno was a lawyer until she left it to be an erotic romance writer full time. Now at the ripe age of thirty she is ready to find her “one” complete with a list of characteristics. She vents these frustrations to fellow author Aggi or as the world knows her Adeline Snow, best friends with Todd.

A case of writer’s block brings her to a cabin in Idaho where she can find inspiration. But she’s not alone.

Todd Chimolski works in real estate  but also helps out his best friend in his free time. One of those hobbies is narrating Adeline Snow’s romance novels. From the moment, he laid eyes on Donna Moreno; he was instantly attracted. He also knows that he’s not the handsome gorgeous guy that Aggi and Donna write about. He’s an average guy. He helps out people when he can, but he also makes a boat ton of money in his real estate company. Todd shows Donna what small town life is about.

Todd makes Donna laugh like no one has ever done before. But is he enough for her?

How can they overcome their differences to be together?

He’s the plot twist she didn’t hear coming.


Becoming a book narrator was never my goal. But if your deep voice tempts romance listeners

to swoon and throw their proverbial panties at you, plans change.


When an unexpected chain of events rockets my easy-going and chill life in a completely

different direction, I tackle it like I do everything—with humor, wit, and a little bit of my “Hawk

Weaver” charm.


That’s not a hardship, though, because it means establishing a friendship with erotic romance

author, Donna Moreno. She’s a game changer. In all the best ways.


Young elegant beautiful smiling business woman.~


As an over-thirty single woman who writes erotica for a living, you would think I spend my days

fighting off every handsome, dirty-mouthed billionaire in a twenty-mile radius. I don’t. Sure, I

have a checklist for my ideal man who I write in my books. I just haven’t found “the one” in the

real world.


Todd Chimolski may not check all the boxes on my current list, but there’s something to be said

for a friend who makes you laugh and puts on a suit to make all your fantasies come true.

Hearing him bring the words I’ve written to life is nothing short of an eargasm, and that’s a box

I didn’t know I needed checked.


What happens when the woman who writes sexy romance and the man who narrates it build a friendship that quickly turns to more?

I love to read! I review books for contemporary fiction, young adult, and romance novels. I read the majority of my novels on my Kindle.
