Arm Candy (Hot City Nights #3) by Patricia Ryan
David Waite, a wealthy British fundraiser in New York City, knows exactly how to please a woman, but he’s had enough of social climbers and users. His solution? “Arm candy,” a beautiful woman to accompany him as his regular date. She’s to serve as a dazzling accessory, not a prostitute or call girl, with no strings attached, either emotional or sexual. Then he sees Nora, and he finds himself overwhelmed with a craving for sweets…
Nora Armstrong is a wholesome, virginal beauty fresh from the Midwest. Her cousin asks her to go out with David Waite as a favor to advance his event planning business. She can’t say no, any more than she can say no when David asks for a second date, and a third… According to “arm candy” rules, she should be safe… until David decides to break the rules. Suddenly Nora realizes it’s a risky business, being this smoking hot Brit’s faux girlfriend… and falling in love.
Arm Candy is part of the Hot City Nights series of steamy romances with urban settings, but it can be read independently of the rest of the series. It is a full-length, professionally edited novel with no cliffhanger!

7/10 from me. This was very reminiscent of the type of stories that I read as a teenager. Similar length, style and depth of character and storyline development to Harlequin/Mills & Boon reads.
Saying that though, I was suitably immersed in the characters and storyline to keep me reading. An easy read, suitable for picking up and putting down at will, without losing track in the story.
Although, this is the third in a series it's a standalone story. I will read more by this Author when looking for something that doesn't take much concentration.
