Hard Candy for Christmas Reviews

    1/1/2017 - So, this ended up being my last book of 2016 (I tried to get The Book Thief finished in time, but it's a pretty big read and I just couldn't quite manage it) and first review of the new year.I have previously read Dominguez's The Naughty Stuff and had trouble with the domination/submission and spanking scenes (they were a bit too hardcore for me), so I was hesitant to pick this one up even though it was free. Fortunately Hard Candy was missing the aspects of The Naughty Stuff that I had problems with. Unfortunately, I can't rate this any higher than The Naughty Stuff, but the content wasn't the problem this time, it was the errors within the text and some pretty awkward phrasing. In fact the sex is the reason that I came close to giving this a three, but with my annoyance at the missing words and stilted writing that three would have been a lie. If I had given this three stars I would have felt like I was deceiving anyone using my review to help them decide whether or not to read the book. I would read more of Dominguez's books (keeping well clear of any that list domination/submission or spanking as part of the story), hoping to find one that was edited better and was a little less cheesy.

    (★★★½) HARD CANDY FOR CHRISTMAS was the perfect short story for the holidays, and I thank Ms. Dominguez for making it a free download. Please try this if you're looking for a cheeky, sweet and smexy paranormal story with a little Christmas magick.Lia, Nick and Dale are very likable characters (although I couldn't help but think of certain chipmunks once or twice ^-^). Although the mutual attraction was immediate upon their first meeting at a club, their relationship develops enough over the weeks before Christmas to sustain the ending. I liked that Lia was so straightforward and confident enough to state what she wanted. Initially portrayed as a bit flighty and self-centered, Lia undergoes personal growth as she starts to worry more about how her delicious "hard candy" (*lol*) were dealing with dating the same woman than the looming deadline to end her curse.HARD CANDY FOR CHRISTMAS is my third story by Ms. Dominguez so I can now see certain consistencies in grammatical and composition errors. However, they were relatively minor here and didn't detract from my enjoyment of this creative story. I got a real kick out of the play on words and the slight role reversal at one point. ^_^

    A little Christmas in July reading. “And what exactly is hard candy?” “It’s what you and Dale are. You’re both eye candy with hard bodies. Hence, hard candy.”A cute little ménage novella. What was surprising, considering the length of the story, was that they slowly worked into the idea of sharing when Lia couldn't choose between the two best friends. It was an insta love with a little more time spent on the development of the relationship than I've seen in most novellas. The pixie/fantasy aspect of the story was a little unnecessary and underdeveloped, but didn't detract too much.

    I really liked this story. Lia is all kinds of messed up, the poor thing. Nick and Dale compliment her and each other well. They all mesh together well. I loved the story line. I also like that they did not just all of a sudden fall in love. There was time and relationship building (which is virtually unheard of in free erotica). Even though the story was centered around Christmas, Christmas did not take over the story line. Ella writes menage scenes really well, they were hot and spicy. If you like paranormal erotica with a little humor you should give this one a shot.

    What a wonderful little story this is! What it lacks in length it makes up for with a tight story that's paced just right to develop the relationship between the three main characters at a believable rate. While there's instant strong attraction between them, this not a story of undying true love at first sight. True, it is still a very fast romance, taking place over the course of only three weeks, but it's a pretty intense three weeks so it doesn't seem so unreasonable that they're each ready to make a commitment at the end of that time, especially when you add in the paranormal aspects that are at play here.Lia is a fun, sassy character who's adapting to life as a human as best she can, and she's been doing pretty good for herself so far. Though understandably depressed at the knowledge that her curse is soon to become permanent and she'll never again be a pixie, still she has become resigned to the fact. Mostly anyway. Whether she admits it to herself or not, she's obviously still hopefully, and I think that's likely at least part of the reason why she didn't argue against going with her roommate to the party where she meets Nick and Dale.Nick and Dale have been best friends since elementary school, and they have never let a woman come between them. "Bros before hos", as Lia puts it, is the motto they've lived by. It is this camaraderie and loyalty to one another that is part of what makes them so attractive to Lia. As they embark on the trial of dating the same woman, leaving it to her to decide which of them she wants, they promise one another that no matter how things end up they won't let it affect their friendship, but they both privately worry that it will, and with good reason really, for how could such a thing not affect it? They are each rather different personalities, but they complement each other well, and as Lia puts it, are really two sides of the same coin in many ways.Going into this story, I had expected it to contain a lot more sex than it really does, especially when it opens up talking about how Lia is sitting on her couch playing with herself as she muses about her situation. Thus it was surprising that the sex remains limited to petting and oral for most of it. That's not to say there wasn't a lot of heat here, because there was, particularly the scene of Nick and Lia's first date where he ends up fingering her to orgasm while sitting on a bench in the park. The tension slowly builds throughout the story until the finale is just as explosive as you'd expect. Not just in terms of the sex either, for what it really leaves you with is a heartwarming "Aw, that's so sweet" feeling, not just wet panties.A quick, wonderful read that I'd highly recommend to anyone that enjoys romantic short stories, particularly those with a paranormal bent. Fans of contemporary romance shorts will like it as well I think. I have no qualms about giving this one 5 stars, though I would note that the rating takes into consideration the fact that it's a short story. Would it stand equal to 5 star full length novels? Probably not, but I daresay it rates highly amongst its peers in the short story field.

    I finally found my copy of this book and read through it easily in one sitting. Since I rarely read blurbs anymore, I was pleasantly surprised by the threesome and to find out it has a little pixie just added to the enjoyment. This is a sweet erotic menage great for spicing up the holiday reads.

    4.5 stars Erotica, PNR, Menage, Short-storyCover: a 5 star. I really loved it. I can see it's all about Christmas, it's erotica and it's the female character. :)Characters: 4.5 stars overall Lia: 5 stars Dale: 4.5 stars Nick: 4 starsI really love the heroine, she was funny and feisty. ;)Both males were good, as often in a menage, they complemented each other. Even though I usually like best the dark-dangerous one, in this matter the blond won! Dale was shy and kinky. How could I not love him?I did understand all the characters and because of if I felt a connection with them. ~Magickal Graphics~Plot: 4 starsReal good for a short-story. The author really managed to explain every bit of detail really well. It was an easy read that left me feeling "I want more". I really enjoyed the humor of the characters and I love the intensity of their relationship.It was believable, specially because it was a PNR story. I just expected more at the ending. ;)Sex Heat: 5 starsReal steamy! Kinky! Editing: 4 starsJust a few errors and some skipped words. Since this is a first copy posted for the readers on GR I really rated it good.Impressions and OpinionI really loved Ella's writing style and I could relate with her characters. I'm looking forward to read other things from her.I really enjoyed the author's originality and I saw some different things from what I usually see around. :)I didn't rate it 5 stars, because I found the ending a bit lacking. I wanted more! :)I would recommend this book to anyone that likes a fun-sexy-read!Thanks Ella, in the name of KW for this wonderful book!

    A surprisingly developed storyline in a 40 page short. The female lead, Lia, was shockingly honest with her love interests and their reactions to her and their competitive situation were very mature and realistic. The two men's whirlwind courtship was nice. There was an instant attraction between all three main characters but they all took time to get to know each other (even though it was over a relatively short period of time). There were a few editing issues but nothing overwhelming. Some of the descriptions and conversations seemed almost clinical to me but the story was still well put together and developed. A good short read.

    Hard Candy for Christmas is the perfect steamy, spicy story. It's about Lia, a pixie, who is cursed to be human unless she can find true love by Christmas Eve. When she meets Nick and Dale, she finds everything she desires. They become her "hard candy." During the course of dating them, she really falls for both of them and they both fall for her. Which of course leads to a whole new set of problems. But once everything is settled, Lia begins to enjoy her "hard candy."I loved this book. I definitely will be reading more books by Ella Dominguez. I wouldn't mind having my own set of "hard candy."

    A nice and naughty little read. Short and sweet and to the point but not so much that you felt too rushed. While the writing wasn't exactly top notch the characters were very likable and easily relatable. But really, who can complain about a free ebook download? Especially, when the story was as enjoyable and kinky as this one! :)

    For a challenge, I decided to try this short story. Hmms. Thought it was supposed to be short, but there are 14 chapters. hmms. At least I will after I get Sims 4 to stop accidentally loading. Taps foot.Right, so, the story. Pixie Lia flirted with the wrong guy. Witch Samara was grumpy about the whole thing and cursed Pixie. Now Lia's without wings or magic. Constrained to the mundane human world. Unless she does something or other by Christmas (edit: find true love). Which is bad, apparently, because humans have small dicks. Right, sorry "average sized dicks". Hmm. I kind of know what kind of story I'm getting myself into when the book opens with the main character lazily playing with engorged clit. hmms. Swollen, engorged, pfft. Ok, book says swollen. Apparently the tranisition to human world was relatively simple for Lia, who found an aparment (with roommate) and a job (at a 900 sex telephone line). Hmms. So, dragged to a Christmas costume party dressed like a pixie. Meets up with two potential "true loves" almost at same time. Which is easy since they came to the party together and she sits at their table. Cute story so far. Despite being depressed and overly horny, I kind of like Lia so far. Re: title of Hard Candy. Found line in book that explains that. The two men Lia meets are the "hard candy". "Which hardy candy do I want to lick?" “It’s what you and Dale are. You’re both eye candy with hard bodies. Hence, hard candy.”Hmms. This story suddenly took a turn into BDSM. At least dominance and submission. And bondage. I was not prepared for such as none of the shelves on the top level say BDSM. "he fingered her ass and licked her clean." - ewwwwwHmms. Erotic stories don't normally bring tears to my eyes. But this one did. During one particular moment at least when it appeared everything was doomed. Ok, two particular moments.I had to check to make sure and I was right. Before now I've rated several, many?, erotic/adult books five stars, but only one sits on my favorites shelf. Why? Because of the nature of artificially being limited to full stars. Heck, even being limited to half stars. So, some things are just "good enough" to merit, say, 4.5, or even 4.75 stars. Should I "punish" them by marking them 4 stars? To a certain extent, I wouldn't really mind that. Except . . . then they mingle with books that truly are 4 stars. Should I take a star from them so they don't intermingle with higher quality works? Something has to break somewhere along the line. I broke into letting everything below five be rated accurately, and have five mixed up with some books that are really less than five but much more than 4 stars. And then put the true five stars, the true favorites, on my favorites shelf. I have fifty works on there. At least I did. I now have 51. And the number of adult books on my favorites shelf have immediately doubled. To two. The last thing I'll say is just this: I'm always saddened when I see that the works I find to be favorites aren't for others. Heck, before I input my rating, this work has an overall rating of 3.49. That makes me sad. And teary eyed. I'm not normally teary eyed. I think the story broke me.

    This was my first time reading a book from this author. Honestly speaking, it took me some time to get into even though the writing style was easy to follow. After the second attempt, I felt it was an ok read to pass a lazy day. The plot was interesting enough but lacked the grit in its delivery. I thought the characters could have been developed a bit more too. When the storyline got really interesting, it was over, leaving me unsatisfied. Because of the author’s style I will check out her other books to see if I like another title more. All in all, not bad for a lazy afternoon read.

    What do you want for Christmas?I am familiar with Ella's work, this being my third encounter with her prick teasing reads. A pixie curse that can be opened before Christmas if it is lifted with true love. Two men become a coin flip relationship, but with out giving away any spoilers lets just say the men get their wish as well as the pixie. Down boy, back under the tree til Christmas!!

    Cute Christmas story. Lia is a pixie that has had her pixie powers stripped and forced to live as a human after she flirted with another pixie's guy. She has to find true love by Christmas or she'll be forever human. She meets two different guys who happen to be friends and can't seem to choose between them.

    I keep trying to test the paranormal waters with my reading, but the pixie aspect of the story got a bit silly for me at times, so this just didn't work for me. If you like hot and steamy with a touch of pixies from a different world and a touch of silly then this will be right up your alley.
