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

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

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 Motorcy

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

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 favor

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 for t

‘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

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

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.

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.

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..

Sadie had been watching Motorcycle Madnezz and Sadie thought about how dull he life seemed in comparison to the reality show and how much she preferred it that way. She groaned when a commercial came on and it reminded her she couldn’t put off getting a costume much longer. Her brother Elliott had forced her to accept a costume party invitation. When Sadie asked why she couldn’t skip the party Elliott said anything to get her into something besides her sweatpants. He also added she was turning i ...more

I absolutely adored Sadie and Gear, they are unique personalities and their total honesty set the pace of this book. I do believe though that All I Want For Halloween won’t be for every reader. Now, I happen to love Marie Harte’s work and would never hesitate to pick up a book by her. Yet Sadie and Gear are completely in your face, tell it like it is if you don’t like it tough, a bit of a mean streak, definitely snarky, sassy and hot. They are real life-like in many h

A highly entertaining, sexy, humorous romance that will definitely get you in the Halloween spirit! All I Want for Halloween by bestselling author Marie Harte is a fun, hilarious, emotional roller-coaster of a story. The main characters are raw, unfiltered, unapologetic, and absolutely fantastic!

This is a fun, sexy Halloween-themed story centering on Sadie and Gear. What starts as a quickie hook-up at a pre-Halloween costume party turns into something more, with a lot of bumps along the way!

The characters are refreshing in that Sadie is not afraid to speak her mind. She has an inner confidence that allows her to speak her mind, not saying what she thinks others want her to say but what she feels. Although she sees herself as being introverted and thinks everyone finds her life

A fun, breezy spin-off from the Donnigans made cuter with the Halloween theme, making me long for autumn, fall clothes, and a PSL. The book starts with a bang, literally, when Sadie and Gear hook up at a costume party a month before Halloween, and it turns out they are a match made in hookup heaven.
She guzzled beer, didn't sugarcoat her opinions, and openly admitted to a fondness for pizza and burgers. He was half in love with her already, and that wasn't counting their intense physical connect

Ready for Halloween? If you want to get in the mood in October, I recommend this book. It will get you in the mood for Halloween and give you a funny, sassy, somewhat reality-tv based contemporary romance. It seems to be a stand alone book, which is nice if you are not looking for a new series.

The two main characters Sadie Liberato and your (soon to be) book boyfriend, Gear Blackstone are a treat to read about. They are not perfect and both have some emotional baggage to overcome before committi
