Goodreads Summary: Revenge is sweet, just like candy.
Candy Seaborne knows she’s badass. She takes after her father, an assassin and possibly a spy, although he won’t admit to either. She idolizes him. Her dream is to follow in his footsteps. But first, she has to finish high school.
Biding her time, waiting for real life to begin, Candy craves drama and isn’t above manufacturing some. If you’re a classmate who wronged her or a boyfriend who cheated, watch your back. She’s no pushover, and revenge may be her favorite pastime. 
Jonah Bryson is the senior class heartthrob who breaks all the stereotypes. He’s a jock, but he isn’t the typical player. He’s moody and antisocial. No girl has gotten anywhere with him since his last girlfriend broke his heart.
Candy sees Jonah as a challenge and the perfect distraction. But she may be in over her head because unlike everyone else, Jonah isn’t buying her tough act. He sees the lost, lonely girl inside. He sees too much. When he looks at her that way, she wants to let her guard down and be vulnerable. But that’s the last thing she should do because her father’s world is spilling over into hers, and life is about to get real much sooner than Candy expected

Like Candy is a book about a young girl called Candy, who after her eighteenth birthday decides to move back in with her Dad, after causing a lot of trouble with her cheating ex, where she used to live. After seeing Miss Popularity's slight obsession with jock Jonah, she soon starts hanging out with and maybe everything isn't as black and white as she would prefer it to be. Especially when her fathers job comes into play.

I was actually quite surprised with how much I enjoyed this book, even though some parts were unrealistic, the writing was perfect for me.
The unrealistic parts for me were about Candy's fathers 'job'. Nothing he did made sense, if you were an assassin or someone in that job area, why would you break into someones house and get caught by a teenage girl. I just don't get it.

Sadly, the ending is a cliffhanger, which leaves you very excited for the sequel.
