Synopsis from Goodreads: 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.

Angie’s Review – 3 stars – B-

After reading The Original Sinners, Tiffany Reisz became one of my very favorite authors. She weaves a wondrous tale a reader can get so lost in they forget to come up for air. I think, for this reason (and because I loved TOS so much) my expectations for Her Halloween Treat may have been too high.

I didn’t really care for the female lead in this book. She was someone I was never able to warm up to. I felt like Joey was too dramatic, and the fact that it took her so long (even though the book only spanned two weeks) to realize what an amazing catch Chris was didn’t help matters. I can’t believe I’m saying this, because I usually love the banter from this author, but it was over the top here. I thought her friend gave her terrible advice, though I’m willing to concede it panned out in the end. But I adored Chris. I love that he’d had a crush on Joey for years and was so open to falling in love with her. I love when a hero doesn’t have to fall kicking and screaming into love, but they’re willing to give into it, and Chris was. He was so open and honest, and the funny tidbits of high school Chris were the highlights of the story for me.

While this wasn’t quite what I thought it was going to be, I did enjoy Her Halloween Treat. I’ll be reading the next book in this series.

Rating: 3 Stars
