Shelves: romance
Sadie Liberato was as anti-social as they get. She hated people (apparently being dumped by a guy is a reason enough to turn into a misanthrope) and the only people she was having normal conversations were his brother and his sister.
Grumpy Cat
Speaking about the brother, this is the third romance in a row where a brother of the main heroine is gay. Is it a requirement these days? Because these guys being gays did not add anything to the plot in all cases.

Sadie's gay brother literally forced her to go to a

I didn’t expect your sister, and I for sure didn’t want to fall in love. But somehow, her big mouth and big feet ran me over without me realizing it.”


When I first started this journey called smutty romance reading via kindle, Marie Harte was a go to author for me. I enjoyed the mostly northwest U.S. settings, the likeable characters and the reliably hot sexy stuff.

All I Want For Halloween continues that tradition but with the added bonus of two characters who ALWAYS spea

Mindy Lou's Book Review
This book was my catnip! I freakin loved it and was very entertained! I'll tell you right now this book won't be for everyone. Our main characters, Sadie and Gear are antisocial, blunt and in your face. People like that can come off as crass, mean and in Gears case, a misogynist. I can relate...well not with the misogynist part, but I digress. Here's a secret for you, they aren't any of these things. Well maybe a little mean...

The banter between these two had me laughing out loud. A lot. It got

I read about 30% of it and got bored, I wish them well. I think this is the second book of Harte's I just up and stop - guessing it is bc of the tension. Hot sex, lots of it, but the emotional tension hasn't matched it the way I like. ...more
Carvanz
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 deepe

As a big Marie Harte fan, I was looking forward to reading this book. I haven’t read too many Halloween themed stories, so I was particularly excited about reading this one. As you can expect, this book has a lot of fun banter and sexiness. I feel like this is kind of what Marie Harte does best with her Contemporaries.

The heroine, Sadie Liberato, is forced to go to a Halloween party by her brother. There she meets a masked man, who is no other than Gear Blackstone, a reality TV star on Moto

Note to self: Stop reading Contemporary Romance. This is just not a genre you enjoy. In my defense, I needed an audio book and since it is the week before Halloween, I thought I'd give this romance a shot. My beef with a Contemporary is the attitudes of the 20-30 something characters and, in this one, the almost nonstop sex scenes. I must be getting old. I go for romance books in the audio format because they don't require much brain power to enjoy, it's one step up from listening to music.

Marie Harte’s new single title All I Want for Halloween is all kinds of wicked deliciousness. A reality television “star” whose life has become a publicity nightmare thanks to his now ex-fiancée cheating on him with his best friend meets a warrior princess at a costume party who is as outspoken, honest, and unimpressed with celebrity and has no problem stealing food off his plate, so he can’t help but be a little bit impressed and enamored especially when she has no problem doing him against the

Oof. This is so not for me that I'm reluctant to rate, but having already talked up this premise to others, I want a record of why it may not work for some readers.

What was promising was the frame of a Halloween-themed romance. Why isn't this more of a thing? Assuming of a fantasy identity, as well as potential for gothic elements, adrenaline, and tension all lends to potential sizzle.

The major barrier for me was that what was intended to be sexy was more baldly crude. I'm a great fan of banter,

‘All I want for Halloween’ starts out fun and gossipy in a way about celebrities that had me laughing at the parody, then made it work by introducing a female lead who seemed to know just what she was doing, and yet was funny and gutsy to boot. And I’d thought there and then, that we had a winner.

After all, who can say that they’ve looked with disdain from afar, then came face to face with the very person you’ve been seeing on screen and been judgemental about? As someone watching from the outs

This review was part of a Pandora's Box feature at All About Romance

The story is tuned into today’s values, where going viral or acting out on camera are the benchmarks for fame and glory. This was my first Marie Harte book and I’d grade it a solid C. If there had been more development of Sadie’s character and more thoughts behind her relationship with Gear other than how awesome the other person was in bed this could have been a recommended read. Will Gear and Sadie go down as one of my fav

My review cross-posted from Wit and Sin

All I Want for Halloween is anything but ordinary thanks to its unique characters. I love heroines in particular who break the mold and Marie Harte definitely delivered with Sadie. Sadie is a breath of fresh air. She’s blunt, often cranky, has no patience for BS, and isn’t exactly what you’d call a people person. I loved that she is confident and outspoken and I honestly just plain liked her. She was hurt in the past pretty badly and I was rooting f

Maybe it's the time of year. Maybe it's the swoonworthy couple that are unapologetically themselves. Maybe it's the constant references to baked goods and reality television. Whatever it is, I lived this book. It made me smile and laugh and sigh. 5 stars ...more

For a smexy good time, Ms. Harte is my go to author. Her stories consistently deliver blazing sex and hot chemistry between the characters. In this latest one, Sadie and Gear heat up the sheets with delicious raw erotic scenes. This story is more than just sex.

The plot in this story burns me up. Gear Blackstone is a reality star for a Motorcycle show. He's had a falling out with his fiance and best friend. They have painted him as a jerk, basically projecting all their flaws onto him. Based on

Thanks to Sourcebooks for the advanced reader copy in exchange for an honest review.

I did not care for this one for two particular reasons.

First, the treatment of female characters showed a lot of internalized misogyny, particularly in the heroine as exceptional Not Like Other Girls character. More than that, though, women tended to be either warm, family-oriented caring madonnas or irredeemably awful whores with almost no ground in between. By contrast, though male characters were also a bit th

I loved the start of this book. The reality tv star, the woman who wouldn't usually have anything to do with him, and a masquerade.

The beginning had everything that I needed to really engage with the story, to love it, and to not want to put it down.

Unfortunately, after about 45% I felt like the book lost all of it's steam...both in the plot and in the chemistry with the lead characters. It became about her family, and her sister and the brother w

Not going to lie to you one bit. I only requested this book because it was a Halloween theme. Who knew I would end up loving this book and finding a new author to fan girl over! Gear and Sadie have both been burned when it comes to love and decide to let loose at an Halloween party for one night only. As fate would have it they are reunited and they can’t deny there is more to them just the one night. At first I thought this was going to be one of those insta love stories that I don’t really car ...more

All I Want for Halloween is funny, snarky, hot and sexy! Perfect for those who want something entertaining and steamy for Halloween.

Sadie is a tell it like it is, take no shit from anyone kind of woman. She's tall, she's beautiful and she's mostly comfortable in her own skin. When she runs into a hot guy at a costume party her brother forces her to attend, for the sake of their business, she's all for some casual, but hot party sex with the big, muscular guy in the mask. But when she finds out t

This book immediately pulled me in 'cause it was about Halloween time, I loved the cover! ... I love (enjoy) that theme (time of the year, fall, anything autumn related) ...had to read it. I don't believe I've picked up anything from Marie Harte before?? Gotta see. I know after this read I will be reading more from Marie Harte soon enough. I love getting a read book every once in a while. after carrying around a kindle for so long it is fun to see and hold a real book. Great read. Gear & Sadie . ...more
Annette Dahl "Old Vicarious Reader"

Wallbanger, my favorite romantic comedy has finally met its match! I loved this story. It was bold and naughty. A couple meet and it’s fireworks starting with the first kiss. I’m not a fan of love at first sight stories, but this was lust at first sight that turned quickly into love. And, that made sense because this couple was perfect for each other. There was two things that made this read perfect for me. One, the couple’s banter and being able to be real with each other from the first moment

Gear is one smart man when his woman is upset you don't sit on your behind, you take action, “you know what? I’m going to drink, wolf down some pizza, and try to forget the verbal smackdown my brother already gave me. I can do without your **** too.” She hung up. He swore and got dressed, then took his quieter bike, the one without the monster pipes, over to Sadie’s..." I really liked this book, Sadie was so sassy. ...more

All I Want For Halloween by Marie Harte  
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.

A strong heroine always keeps my interest in a book. Add the snark and a hero worth noticing and the book kept me reading way past my bedtime.
