    • "That was like reinventing sex for me. I didn't know it came like that.""Yeah—that was like a whole other flavor," Miguel agreed "Like lollipops," [Ezra] said. "Like—if you just taste them, they're supposed to just taste like cherry. But if you believe they're more than that, they really taste like rainbows."Ezra came to Sacramento to find Rico. Instead, he found Miguel: Miguel who shows him the ropes, hugs him when he cries, and takes him home to meet his mom; Miguel, who cares and nurtures [...]


    • In book 3 of Amy's Candy Man series, "Lollipop," all of the characters that I loved from the two initial books are back and the new story fits seamlessly into the Candy Heaven universe. In this latest installment, 28 y.o. NYC native, Ezra Kellerman shows up in Sacramento with hopes that he isn't too late, but when you snooze, you lose, which Ezra immediately realizes, as Rico is now happily in love with Derek, his true soulmate.Rico does still care what happens to Ezra, though, even if he has mo [...]


    • Edited and expanded: Feb 11 2016Leaving below my original review, that admittedly is not much of one. It was just me venting my feelings. And I stand by them still. I’ve actually noticed that only if I’m pissed as hell am I marginally listened. That’s sad as fuck.But seeing as I didn’t really review this book, this is my attempt to do so. I can’t promise I won’t feel enraged again. Because the truth is that haven’t stop feeling the anger simmering under the surface.The book starts [...]


    • Lollipop is the third book in the Candy Man Series and starts off directly where book two ends. Ezra finally freed from his father has come to win back Rico only Rico has moved on. Rico has entrusted the gang to take care of Ezra. Just as in the previous books, Amy Lane has delivered another lovely, feel good story that will steal your heart.My highlights:*Rico. Hot damn. I loved everything about him. His strength, loyalty, and gentleness. I've got another Book Boyfriend to add to my list.*Ezra. [...]


    • “Yeah. You know. Uh, lollipop kisses— he’s got ’em. [Miguel]” Darrin nodded soberly. “They don’t just taste like cherry,” he said, completely serious. “They taste like the whole rainbow.”You know what this is? This is angst in disguise. Heartbreak served with candy and lollipops and bubble gum. You 're so sneaky, Amy Lane! Even your fluff makes me want to cry. But it hurts soooo good!So, yes, my heart broke a little while reading this book.For Ezra. Who came back to Rico, but [...]


    • I am so torn about this book mostly because I really like this author's books but this time, it was really hard to push through the book.I'm going to say that I'm the whitest, mayo on white bread person ever. My family has no cultural identity other than our Minnesota roots and I was personally offended for blacks, Mexicans and Jews while reading this book. I felt sorry for Ezra and Miguel because they were caught in a very horrible, racist sitcom written by a woman who probably is a very nice p [...]


    • Anyone that has spent much time reading my reviews knows that I can't get enough of Amy Lane. Amy Lane Lite, Amy Lane Super Angsty, just sign me up! I read Lollipop right after a very heavy, emotionally draining read and it, as I knew it would, recharged me and left me centered again.Miguel and Ezra seemed an unlikely pair, at first. Ezra was a fish out of water, or, more appropriately, a cat that just escaped its kennel for the first time. Watching them play cat and mouse was rather fun.Miguel [...]


    • 3.75 stars [but see ETA at the bottom]I think I've worked out why Amy Lane is like catnip to me, at least in her "not absurdly angsty" form: her books are about people being kind to each other, essentially. Not "nice", which is something different and not necessarily altogether admirable, but kind. Generous, empathetic, and giving because there's no reason not to be. And in these books the villains, such as they are, are always people who've had a failure of empathy: they are the opposite of the [...]


    • **edit 30/4/16. I will not be reading Selfie even though I bought it from Riptide. I understand that the author has 'pooped' again and more rubbish has appeared in that book which Riptide's owners have now publicly agreed is not acceptable in any way, shape or form. The author has been requested to amend her original work. I can only say 'Adios Amy, it's been a blast but all good things have definitely come to an end. No more.'***Another disappointing Amy Lane read for me I'm afraid, and I was d [...]


    • This is one of Amy Lane's most misleading series ever, because with all the sweetness that lollipops, and candy and chocolate bring, you'd never expect for that subtle angst to take residence inside your heart and rip it to pieces a little at the time. I should know better by now, yet once again I was surprised to realize Amy is a very sneaky writer, whose version of fluff and sweetness has a definite bite to it. But what doesn't kill you only makes you stronger, and this time around I've learne [...]


    • Lollipop, Lollipop, Oh Lolli Lolli LollipopI don't have a sound track for this story but I'm old enough that the theme song popped into my head and of course it's Lollipop by the Chordettes of course link text I started reading 'Lollipop' because at the time I just needed something that would make me smile and with out fail this one did it. We first found out about Ezra in 'Bitter Taffy' the second book in this series. He's Rico's ex from New York. The guy who broke Rico's heart so honestly I di [...]


    • I think it's time for an Amy Lane break for me. I love her sweet books and her angsty books, there are even bits of this series that I love. But this is cloyingly sweet, improbably and obnoxiously sweet - so sweet that the people almost seem challenged in some way. It's clearly me and not the books because they are so popular. Why did Ezra cry alle.time? And why was Miguel kind of intelligible sometimes? Why were so many words italicized? And for the love of all things holy, why does Amy Lane ha [...]


    • I wasn't feeling this.We first glimpsed Ezra in book two--and he was horrible. I knew this book was about him getting his HEA; it wasn't a secret. I also knew Amy Lane would be able to redeem him.And, while he wasn't the asshole we were initially made to believe, I think Amy Lane turned the dial a few clicks too far in the other direction.The guy has an MBA. (It's mentioned that one time.) Even I know it takes a few extra dashes of smarts to achieve that. So maybe he's book smart and business sa [...]


    • I am growing addicted to the little family at Candy Heaven. Even weird Darrin. Ezra showed at the end of Book 2 and threw Derek into a tizzy, thinking his future with Rico was over. And Ezra wanted to ask for Rico to give them another chance. But Rico was permanently cemented in Derek's heart, and Derek in his. Rico wouldn't leave Ezra out on his ass though. He remembered all too well Ezra's family and home life. And so begins the adoption of Ezra into the fold. This series definitely has a form [...]


    • What an adorable story! As with the first two books in the Candy Man series, there’s sweet sweet romance with a sprinkle of heartache and a bit of growing up, all there to tug at your heart-strings and bow to Amy Lane’s mastery of fluffy goodness. The story picks up right where Bitter Taffy left off, with Ezra stranded in front of Rico’s apartment, with Miguel, Adam, and Finn as his appointed guardians. Ezra is 28 years old, but has experienced a pretty severe mental breakdown after being [...]



    • 5 stars - Can you taste the Rainbow?This is book three in Amy Lane's Candy Man Series and it is just as fun as the other, picking up exactly where book two, Bitter Taffy, left off. You need to read these books in order, they won't make any sense otherwise. So this is finally Ezra and Miguel's story. We get to know the Ezra who broke Rico's heart and learn why he behaved how he did while watching him learn to mend himself and accept himself. Ezra has never had a family who "acted" much like a fam [...]


    • 4.5 starsReview @Ohmyshelves BlogMiguel was on the lookout for one more thing to make Ezra happy, one more thing to talk to him about, one more thing to keep their growing friendship alive and thriving.Oh my goodness, my feelings were in happy sugary sweetness overdrive!!!! Amy Lane has made me happy, and I didn't cry. Yes!!! I think this was my very first book by her and I didn't shed a damn tear. Ha, you take that you Temptress of Tears & Angst!!! From the very beginning to the end I was i [...]


    • Again, I'm turning to Amy Lane and her wonderful 'Candy Man' series for some sweet, gentle, heartwarming, a little angst, and a beautiful happy ever after story. Believe me, if you knew what I read before this that had me sobbing for hours, you would understand why I need the comfort of Finn, Adam, Rico, and Derek. "It wasn’t the religion, because Jews on the whole were pretty damned forgiving—no. It was Martin Kellerman, who gave credence to any idea that allowed him to control the world to [...]


    • This series " Says what it does on the box "The clue is in the title , it's a sweet read , and that is exactly what is required at times .I love Amy Lane's writing , it has a sort of lyrical and very descriptive tone to it , yet it never pulls you out of the story .This book follows on immediately from Bitter Taffy , and Ezra has taken a big step in his life , to follow Rico ( his former boyfriend ) out to Sacremento , only to find Rico has moved on without him .The story follows Ezra putting hi [...]


    • I think this series and Amy Lane's latest books in general are a little bit too sweet, bland, cuddly and repetitive for me at the moment. But I still have not given up the hope that the next Amy Lane might work for me again.


    • I dunno about this one. The voice seemed odd, Ezra seemed a bit too pitiful, and what's all the white boy/brown boy, "I don't see color" bs? And how many employees does a small candy shop really need? I've seen a busy Sees Candy run with two.



    • 2.5 stars This has never been my favorite series from Amy Lane, but I just can't help myself and I needed a sugary fix. While I loved book 1 and simply liked book 2, this one didn't do much for me. Adam and Finn's witty banter in book 1 worked, but now it just seems like every couple talks with the exact same rhythm and cadence. It didn't fit Miguel's personality, and certainly not Ezra's. Add to that, Ezra has almost the same voice as Adam and he just didn't gel in my mind with how I thought of [...]


    • My favorite of the Lollipop series. Finally! Hot Latinos looking for love. Canine and felines. Candy. You'd have to be very greedy to want more than that considering the dearth of books with Latino and Latina characters.


    • Okay, I admit it. I read this out of sequence, but in my defense, I got it as an ARC and this is the very first novel by this author I’ve ever read. I stopped nearly halfway through it and raced over to to see if the other characters had books released previously, and was thrilled to see that they did. While technically a standalone, there are enough references to previous situations that it’s clear reading the first two will enhance this book's overall flow. However, I don’t feel like I [...]

    • * FIVE 'LOLLIPOP" STARS!* “They don’t just taste like cherry,” he said, completely serious. “They taste like the whole rainbow.”I'm a happy girl because Lollipops !And love should taste like lollipop, and rainbow !I never thought I will love Ezra for what he did to Rico back then.
