Trick…or wicked treat!
It was a devastating dirty trick—Joey Silvia just found out her boyfriend of two years is married. What. A. Dick. Joey knows her best chance to get over one guy is to get under another. Of course, heading home to her family's remote cabin in Oregon poses some challenges in the "available men" department…until she discovers this cabin comes with its own hot handyman!
Holy crap, Chris Steffensen. When did her brother's best friend turn into a hard-bodied pile of blond-bearded hotness? He's the perfect Halloween treat—and a surprisingly dirty rebound guy. For a couple of weeks, anyway. Except that Chris has other ideas…like proving to Joey that this blast from the past is a whole lot more than a naughty Halloween hookup.
SQUEE!!! I loved this book to PIECES. I never thought I would read a Harlequin romance because honestly, I thought they were all the same and I don’t like to read the same stuff over and over again. But oh boy, I was in for a DELGHTFUL surprise with this book. Gah, it is so much fun, sexy as hell, and features my favorite type of man candy -those bearded lumbersexuals- hehe! What also makes this book wholly worthwhile is that it is sort of Halloween themed. Yea you don’t get witches, goblins, and ghosts, but you do get a picturesque idea of the fall, during the Halloween season, on the beautiful countryside in the woods. Cripes, I loved it so much I wish I could be there. Anyway, this book is definitely worth the read and I will certainly be picking up the next two novels in the series which revolve around Thanksgiving and Christmas. I can’t wait!!!
So this story is a friends to lovers, Halloween romance. The setting is absolutely beautiful and readers can easily imagine that they are sitting in a cabin by the lake in the middle of Fall. The author does a wonderful job painting this picture and making readers want to visit a place like this on their own. This story also follows Jolene (aka Joey) and Chris. After breaking up with her boyfriend of two years because she found out he was married, Joey escapes back to her hometown for some much needed relief. Not only that though, she needs to be at her brother’s wedding which takes place on Halloween. But much to her surprise, she gets more than she bargained for when she runs into a childhood friend who is renovating the very cabin she is staying in for two weeks.
Chris is the type of man that any woman would fall for. He is tall, buff, and totally gorgeous with that beard of his. Of course, having good looks and a winning personality isn’t everything though. The one woman he has always wanted and essentially got away is back in town. So he has to make it his mission to get her back. And for good this time,
Filled with a lot of humor, a lot of sass, and a TON of sexiness, Her Halloween Treat is sure to delight many readers. This is definitely one of my favorite books of the season and therefore, I highly recommend it to fellow readers!!
