NO NEED TO COMMENT-- EVERYONE CAN READ FREE! LINK TO THE .PDF HERE.
Candy is just the girl next-door, except with better fashion sense and killer kung-fu skills. But when Candy turns down a date with the wealthy Preston Reign, she suddenly finds herself stalked by a guy who refuses take "no" for an answer.
Candy always had a million guys after her.
Only, before, they never used GPS tracking and surveillance helicopters.
Candy Cohen is just the girl next door—that is, if the girl next door happens to be a college freshman and a part-time model with a wicked sense of humor. She and her best friend Velma jaunt around the world, flirt with rock stars and power brokers, and party it up in countries that don’t even know the meaning of the word.
But all that changes one night, when Candy turns down the rich and powerful Preston Reign’s invitation to dinner. Suddenly, she finds herself being stalked by a guy who never takes “no” for a final answer. Drawn into his web, out of control for the first time in her life, Candy is on the run—dodging bullets, blowing up buildings, being chased through exotic cities, and fighting back with the only weapons she has—Velma, her natural wit, and her stiletto heels.
Candy in Action is about the lonely side of being popular, and the dark side of being the hottest girl in class. It’s action, it’s glamour, and it’s that best-friends-forever feeling where you’re on top of the world and anything could happen.
