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.
Her Halloween Treat is such a great story, Reisz spins beautiful stories with characters I never want to leave.
I don’t know how Reisz does it, but her stories always grabs me and pulls me in! Her Halloween Treat is no exception, as I fell instantly in love with both Joey and Chris. My feels were invested from the start, too, and the whole spectrum was involved. The way Reisz strings her words together to make beautiful sentences that become stories is a true piece of art, and I think I could print out a page of one of her books and frame it – that’s how much I love her writing.
And while there were moments where Joey made me want to both cry and scream in anger with her because of her ex, there were also moments where I was very hot and bothered thanks to Chris! And of course, I also laughed out loud – especially at Chris’ special brand of logic when it came to feelings, and how his teenage dreams were finally coming true now that he shared a bed with Joey. I have several pages worth of highlights, but I am only going to share a few quotes with you here – you need to mark your calendar to pick up Her Halloween Treat on release day.
Written in third person point of view, from Joey’s perspective, and in past tense, the story flowed easily. And the subtle humor as well as the extreme hotness of the story, coupled with amazing characters made Her Halloween Treat as close to perfection as is possible!
“You’re gorgeous,” she said. He opened his eyes – blue eyes – and raised his chin. “lie down and come,” he said. “You can tell me how pretty I am later.”
“Stay there.” “I’m naked. Where would I go?” He didn’t answer as he walked from the room, still naked himself. Christ should do that more often – walk out of rooms naked. The view was spectacular. Better than the view of the mountain from her window. She could charge money for a view like that.
A man who stored his condoms in his toolbox. That was cute. Very cute. She could get used to being with a guy like this.
