Eye Candy Friday: Scott Turner from Love on Lexington Avenue by Lauren Layne

Posted November 1, 2019 by Rowena in Books, Features | 6 Comments

Eye Candy Friday is all about the heroes and heroines that I’m loving and wanting to spotlight right now. Sometimes I’ll do full-on gush fest posts on why I love these guys, sometimes I’ll post pictures of what I think they look like and that’s it but if they’re featured here, the one thing that will be constant is I loved the hell out of them and want everyone to know. Thanks for coming along for the ride.

Today’s eye candy is Scott Turner from Love on Lexington Avenue by Lauren Layne, the second book in Layne’s The Central Park Pact series. Scott is a friend of Oliver’s (the hero from book 1) and is doing him a favor by remodeling Claire’s house for her. Scott is an architect and contractor for huge skyscrapers but he took on this project for Claire because he needed to take a break from the bigger projects. Remodeling an old brownstone fit his idea of taking a step back. Scott is a take-charge and no bullshit kind of guy and seeing him go head to head with Claire at every turn was such a delight. I completely adored him, which is why he’s this week’s Eye Candy Friday. To know him is to love him so if you haven’t read his book and haven’t met him yet, you’ll want to change that. Everyone should know and love Scott.

Hero Casting

This is who I pictured as Scott while I was reading Love on Lexington Avenue. He’s even got the tiniest smirk that Scott has when he’s thinking of annoying Claire over something or other.

Everyone knows the girl is off limits. But it's so good to be bad.


There's this girl... Heidi and I have been trading hungry looks all year, and everything she does makes me smile. But I don't do girlfriends, and I certainly can't get involved with the league commissioner's daughter. I need shots on goal, not a hookup and a widely misunderstood paparazzi photo.Can I resist her, though? The way she teases me should be a game penalty for interference with my libido. 


There's this guy...Jason wants me, but he won't admit it. That man looks at me the way a hockey player eyes the lunch buffet after practice--and I love it. But when victory is finally within my grasp, I blow it and humiliate myself. Even then I can't even avoid him--as the team intern, I'm in constant view of his hard body and cocky smile. I need another chance. Jason Castro is about to learn the true meaning of an overnight sensation.

Today’s girl crush is Heidi Pepper from Overnight Sensation by Sarina Bowen. She was the bomb. She made this book for me. She grew up with money and she never went without but that wealth came with a lot of strings and she wasn’t living her truth so when her father starts acting like a real dickhead, trying to bring her to heel, things picked up for me. My rage grew but my admiration for Heidi grew because there was nothing she wouldn’t do, no job too small for her that would break her. She worked her ass off for every single thing that she got and I loved the family that she created for herself with the Bruisers. I just adored her to pieces.

You can read my joint review of Heidi’s book with Holly, here. Spoiler alert: We both loved it. 🙂

Heroine Casting

I think Ashley Benson would bring Heidi’s character to life really well. She’s got the right look and I can totally see her cleaned up and dressed down. She can work an office setting just as well as she can get down and dirty with the maintenance crew. She’s definitely my Heidi Pepper.
