Candy is back and dirtier than ever in ULTIMATE VACATION, book 2 of Dirty White Candy by the suggestively named Anita Cox. Here we find Candy and sometimes friend-with-benefits John enjoying island life at a swingers paradise, complete with sexy young couples (no "undesirables" here).
After Candy Kavana's perfect life imploded, she discovered an even more perfect life for herself. Between the sex therapist and her personal shopper, Candy has discovered more about her own sexual needs than she's ever known. And when a couple invites her and one of her lovers to a swingers resort in the Florida Keys, Candy doesn't hesitate! She grabs her neighbor John for some no-holds-barred sexploration along with some sun and surf.
While sex with strangers is incredibly erotic and so much fun, Candy and John make the unconscious choice to take their relationship to the next level. As hard as Candy has fought her feelings toward the incredibly sexy man, she knows deep down that he may be the right one for her in a forever kind of way. The two of them don't hesitate to enjoy multiple partners while on the trip, but at the end of the day they both adore coming back to one another for what really matters.
ULTIMATE VACATION is book 2 in the Dirty White Candy series and I don't recommend reading it without picking up book 1, The Beginning, first. While I enjoyed the first book, I thought book 2 was very "eh." There simply wasn't any storyline or plot added to all of the decadent sex this time around. I'm all for erotica, don't get me wrong, but personally I prefer my stories with at least a little bit of substance. The only real thread of a story in ULTIMATE VACATION was Candy realizing that she had real feelings for John and that, yup, John can have lots of sex with just as many people as she could.
Speaking of John, his character changed from someone with feelings and emotions and a deep romantic side to pretty much a piece of man meat by the end of this book. Maybe because all of the women treated him like one, but his character just didn't have much depth past the first few chapters. Candy was on her journey of self-discovery and admittedly fairly selfish about it, which I appreciated. It made me like her character more because of her honesty with John about their state of the union. I also really enjoyed her snarky inner monologue; it was realistic and not always sunshine and roses and sex.
The kicker for me was the sketchy editing, which cancelled out the hot ménage, orgy, bisexual and group scenes that were well written. I will finish what I started and read the third book in the series, Trading Places, but ultimately, I was pretty disappointed with ULTIMATE VACATION.
