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.

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 ...more

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.

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 ...more
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, ...more

I've had my ups and downs with this author's work, and lately it's been more of a down than an up, but I was very pleasantly surprised by this novel!
I liked the romance between Sadie and Gear. It was definitely different, and had a good de ...more
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 ...more
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 ...more
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 ...more
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 ...more
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 ...more
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 ...more

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 ...more
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 ...more
