A frightfully good time! Dive into these Halloween novellas from bestselling authors Tijan, J. Daniels, Helena Hunting, Bella Jewel and Tara Sivec. Featuring stories set in the worlds of their popular series.
Tijan's Fallen Crest crew are back for a weekend of mischief that takes a sinister turn; all four couples from J. Daniels' Alabama Summer series gear up for Halloween in their own sexy ways, with a special surprise at the end; Helena Hunting's characters from Shacking Up plan a Halloween gala that features a few ghouls and witches; Bella Jewel brings the chills and thrills in her suspenseful take on Halloween night; and Tara Sivec gathers the Holiday family together one last time as they try to make this ghostly holiday one to remember--or one they'd rather forget...
Cozy up with a mug of hot cider on a dark night and fall under the spell of this Halloween anthology!
Eye Candy is a halloween compilation from some of my favorite authors!! Get a peek at halloween with the Fallen Crest crew, the Bama boys, the crew from Shacking Up, and the Holiday family! Plus, a spooky take on halloween from Bella Jewel, whose romantic suspense books I have been gobbling up like candy!
Now, in all honestly, I only read 2 stories: The Fallen Crest Halloween and the Bella Jewel story. I am WAY behind on my Bama boys, I didn’t care for Shacking up, and I have read any of the Tara Sivec series. I might read these in the future if I get caught up or start those series, but for now, I went with Tijan and Bella Jewel for the win!
So, I loved the Fallen Crest story. It takes place AFTER Fallen Crest Forever so there are spoilers if you aren’t caught up on the series! Heather has come to visit Sam and Logan (and Taylor), who are in their senior year of college, and Mason is coming home for the weekend. Logan decides to have a major-rager halloween party with a haunted house to boot. And let me tell you, shit gets SCARY!!! I read this when my husband was out of town. Needless to say, every light in my house stayed on.
Then, I seriously had to question my sanity when I started the Bella Jewel story, because, hello?? Her recent romantic suspense books are freaky as fuck! Seriously, what was I thinking!? This little novella fits in perfectly with her latest books which means it scared the crap out of me. This is the one book in this anthology I will say you can read as a stand alone because it isn’t related in any way to other stories.
Bottom line? If you want to be creeped out, these stories deliver!! I loved getting a dose of my favorite couple (Sam and Mason) with a scary story. And I always love the creepiness that Jewel brings to her stories!
