Could not put it doen
A tricky but steamy treat is at the center of Marie Harte's latest tempting read. All I Want For Halloween makes for wicked fun. Fantasy and reality collides for two strangers in the night and in the light of day their lives may never be the same. Ms. Harte is a master at wrapping readers up in her world of steamy trysts and secret vice. Seduction has never been so tempting.
If you’re looking for a fabulously fun, scorchingly hot read, snuggle up with All I Want For Halloween. Marie Harte consistently writes the pants off of her romantic comedies. I love them! I love the often outrageous characters, the heartwarming family dynamics, the snappy dialogue and witty banter, and most especially the sexy, sexy chemistry that inevitably results in my very favorite thing … steamy shenanigans between the sheets. Or against the wall. Yessss! There’s so much going on in this story that it’s like a big, fat Greek wedding! But the scenes are well-balanced and the writing is fab. Motorcycle Madnezz has imploded and Gear Blackstone is trying to steer clear of all the reality show fallout and his crazy ex-fiance. Sadie Liberato just wants to bake cookies, cupcakes, and Halloween treats and let her siblings handle the customers and public relations for their bakery. Not too much to ask, right? Apparently, it is. Sadie and Gear are an ideal match—they’re both introverts, value their privacy and alone time, are rough and growly, love working out at the gym, eating junk food, and punching people. They’ve both been burned, so while they are madly attracted to each other—how could they not be after that hot rendezvous behind the bamboo—they both fight it. Until they don’t. And then they do. Five knock-out stars and a bag of Baby Ruth bars to All I Want For Halloween!
OMG this story was refreshingly hot and unique- I haven’t read one of these in a few years. This has all the hallmarks of a favorite read-totally hot romance, one of kind players; it is a gripping page turner that you will not want to put down! Sadie and Gear are both at a crossroads when they meet at a Halloween party and sparks fly. Both are trying to figure out what comes next. Sadie is happy in her career choice and personal life except the fact that she’s a little lonely. She’s not looking to change her life for any man and she is happy exactly as she, if only that kept her warm at night and took her out to dinner...when along comes Gear. Tall, hot and tempting -also looking to change his life -he hopes for the better. Gear is a very honest and blunt character-he’s tired of all the bull that’s going on in his life; sadly he’s not so appreciated in the beginning (you can read about this scene in the beginning-it was awesome!). But you come to love his character because of how he handles adversity. You also enjoy his interactions with his family-you feel the love and caring that shines in this story. He’s fascinated by meeting a woman who is just as blunt and doesn’t play games-how refreshing considering his past. I loved Sadie’s character-she is honest to the point of bluntness which can contradict the fact she’s also such a likeable character. She loves her family and is extremely close to her siblings which you feel in the story. They are not your typical dysfunction and that is what makes them so special. Lots of witty retorts with snappy comebacks throughout-Love it! The chemistry between the two main characters keeps you turning each page if only to see what’s coming next. The attraction is off the scale, Ms Harte- writes some steaming hot love scenes. Keep a fan by your side and turn up the A/C while you read this. If you’re looking for a steamy, refreshing and totally unique story- this is it. It’s not like others and I can guarantee that you will not regret getting this one. I loved it-hopefully we’ll see the other family members in some future works by Ms. Harte.
Received an ARC for my fair review by author.. I love Sadie, so I have been waiting for this book to come out.. I am so happy she got her HEA, she has always been one of my favorites along with Elliott, he is hilarious. And, she got the perfect guy for her, they were mirror images with their attitudes..I was happy to read about Ava and the Donovan..Can't wait for more..
What a fun, fun book! I loved Sadie and Gear and all their abrasive ways. They are both “take me as I am” characters and I can’t imagine either one of them with anyone else. Marie Harte did an amazing job developing this couple and all their quirkiness. Sadie and Gear are not what you’d call people persons. They are harsh and in your face and I never thought I’d love such personalities as I did them. I thought Gear might be a hard sell when it came to love but as his relationship with Sadie deepened, he accepted it for what it was. And to top it off, he was protective of her in his own way because Sadie is not the type of heroine who needs or would ever accept protection. This was a fast paced read with so many entertaining secondary characters that highlighted this couple’s families. (I’m hoping Iris and Smoke get their own story.) The sex is sizzling, the humor spot on, and the drama always handled well by both Sadie and Gear. An absolute must read if you can handle characters that don’t know the definition of nice and sweet. This is an honest review of an advanced copy provided by NetGalley. Dual POV Safe OW drama but the hero never bats an eye her way and the heroine knows just how to deal with her No apparent triggers HEA
