Arm Candy (audiobook)

1 rating: 4.0
An audiobook voiced by Joyce Bean based on a book by Jill Kargman.

She's as perfect as it gets, the tabloids blare, but suddenly, Eden, the heroine of Kargman's fun and flashy if not exactly groundbreaking latest, is staring at middle age, a dead-end relationship, and regrets about the one who got away. Still, the biggest … see full wiki

AN ENJOYABLE TREAT SPUN WITH WIT AND IMAGINATION - AUDIO REVIEW

There are some voice performers whose name on a cover attracts just as the names of authors do. For this listener multiple award winning narrator Joyce Bean is one of those. Just as Will Rogers never met a man he didn't like I've never heard a Joyce Bean reading that I didn't like. She's an Audie Award winner, brought home several Earphone Awards and a Listen Up Award from Publisher's Weekly. She's tops again with ARM CANDY.

Who says romance can't be fun? Certainly not Kill Kargman who injects healthy doses of her trademark humor in this story of 39-year-old Eden Clyde who thought at one time that she'd made the best bargain possible, but did she?

Blessed with stop traffic good looks Eden had once been a model trying to make her way in a tough business. When Otto Clyde, a wealthy abstract painter, offered security and every creature comfort she made her choice - although he was much older at the time it really wasn't any contest - she chose Otto rather than her steadfast boyfriend.

Almost 20 years have passed. Eden and Otto have a son; she has the life she thought she wanted, and chooses to overlook Otto's other women. But, it seems enough is too much - she leaves Otto and begins a new life cheered on by some of the most fun-loving, appealing girlfriends to be found. She meets and begins a love affair with man-about-town Chase Lydon who is a decade her junior. Then, as fate and the author would have it, Eden's former love resurfaces. Once again, she must make a choice.

ARM CANDY is aptly named - an enjoyable treat sugar coated with wit and spun with imagination.
