Fallen Crest Nightmare Tijan 3.5 stars The beginning was slow and a bit boring, but once this story picked up it had my heart racing. Don’t read this one for the sexy, read it for the pulse pounding excitement and suspense. So Much More J. Daniels 4 stars This was a series of short stories highlighting a different couple from this author’s previous books. They were each so darn cute and I absolutely loved how over the top each hero was. Getting Down Helena Hunting 2 stars POV from two different heroines. One has lots of sex with her boyfriend and the other doesn’t get much from her fiancé. This seems to be setting us up for the story of the engaged heroine possibly getting together with another man. I skimmed a lot of this story. Unsafe Haven Bella Jewel 5 stars Dang, Bella Jewel rocks even a Halloween novella! It’s official, this is definitely my favorite of the book! Sexy, broody hero. Shy, quiet heroine. Mystery, suspense. I loved it! The Pumpkin was Stuffed Tara Sivec 4 stars Another fun addition to Tara Sivec’s The Holidays series. This one obviously Halloween. I don’t know why this crazy functional dysfunctional family make me laugh, but they do. It’s my guilty secret because I’m pretty outspoken about not liking immature humor. This time Noel is pregnant and Sam is hiding a secret from her and the family. It’s chaos and mayhem at its finest with a touch of romance and steam to bring it all together. I pretty much enjoyed everyone of the stories in this anthology. I'm rating this as a 4.5 and rounding it up to 5 because someone gave me some chocolate to eat while I read this. Happy Halloween to me!
There is something for everyone in this collection. They are all either Hallowe'en based or revolve around the holiday. Overall, each story was good and I enjoyed them all Tijan Fallen Crest Nightmare - it was a good story and kept me engrossed the whole time. I kept thinking it was going to end as it did, but that stopped for a bit. Really enjoyed the story J Daniels So Much More - this was amazingly sweet and sexy. Wasn't sure when I started, but was quickly swept into each characters update. And the ending, just perfect! Helena Hunting Getting Down - (the reason I bought the collection!) Ruby and Bane were a lot of fun, of course, and I see more dress up occurring in their future :) Bella Jewel Unsafe Haven - While the book has a definite melancholy feel hanging over it, it is also positive and hopeful Tara Sivec The Pumpkin was Stuffed - this is more of a slapstick comedy, with people in love and different relationships in it. Not my thing, but well done
Four great Halloween themed novellas set in the popular series from each of these authors. Some I have read some I haven't but I enjoyed each of these stories. Tijan, an author I haven't read before, definitely caught my attention with her very scary tale. She had me going for quite a while!! J Daniels, an author I'm very familiar with also had a great story and I loved catching up on all the characters I had previously fallen in love with. This one definitely opened up some new reading material for me. I highly recommend this one.
