I’ve shared the size of Bane’s cock with her. I’ve mentioned my new religion: the Church of Bane Cock. I’ve written sonnets about how beautiful it is. Not really, but I’ve made up a couple of limericks.

Helena Hunting is one of the authors that is ranked HIGH on my favorites list. I love her brand of humor and a number of her cocky and sexy as hell Heroes have stolen my heart. When I found out she would be
4 Not So Spooky Stars

When I saw Eye Candy offered on NetGalley I knew I had to request it. Not only does it contain offerings from some of my favorite authors but on a personal level, Halloween has always been one of my favorite holidays. Where I'm from, Indian summer is EVERY DAMN SUMMER and Halloween is the first possible chance we have to wear jeans without sweating profusely. Add in the fun spooky stuff that always comes with the holiday and I say BRING IT!

Anywho, back to the read at hand.

Well this Halloween compilation was definitely a treat. I've only read J. Daniels' work so I was excited to get introduced to some new authors. Each novella captured the theme of Halloween and I was very much entertained.

Fantastic read!

Tijan's Fallen Crest Nightmare: I've not read the Fallen Crest series but after this short Halloween read, I can't wait to dive into that series. I need to know more about Mason and Logan! Also, I enjoyed the "Scream" theme.

J. Daniel's: These short stories were so cute and they were like an extra epilogue into all the characters. Nolan's 6 year old love for Ryan was adorable! I hope that means we'll eventually get their story.

I really enjoyed Eye Candy anthology, Halloween novellas from bestselling authors Tijan, J. Daniels, Helena Hunting, Bella Jewel and Tara Sivec.

Each novella was well written, entertaining, sexy, funny, thrilling and once I started reading I didn't want to stop.
I was pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed Eye Candy, especially as I've not had the pleasure of reading any of the authors previous books other than Helena Hunting.

My fav was Getting Down by Helena Hunting.

Eye Candy is an entertaining Halloween themed anthology. This review covers So Much More by J. Daniels, Getting Down by Helena Hunting, and The Pumpkin Was Stuffed by Tara Sivec.

So Much More by J. Daniels

It’s been awhile since I’ve read most of the books in the Alabama Summer series, so it was nice to be reminded of how much I love those Bama Boys. The novella takes place on Halloween, and each chapter is about a different couple and written from the man’s point of view.

Fallen Crest Nightmare by Tijan


I almost peed my pants reading this Halloween novella.

But let's start at the beginning. Fallen Crest Nightmare, as the title already promised, visited  my beloved FCH cast during Halloween. That alone was absolutely MAGNIFICENT. Add a dose of haunted house and it was the perfect novella to start off this Halloween anthology.

I LOVE Alabama series and I always want to know what is going on with their lives, kids and stuff like that so this one was the highlight of my week maybe month, it depends on the next books I want to read! We'll see, we'll see...

Ahhhh...this little treat by J. Daniels was so much more!! It was everything that I could have asked for her as she treated her readers to five POVs. And within each of POVs, you can’t help but have a permanent smile on your face!!!!! This was the best treat that J.Daniels could have given her readers!!!!

Short & Sweet. If you are over the top, head over heels, BAMA FAN like myself, than you all must read this. I have said it so many times, so I will say it again. The Bama Series is unlike any series I've read before, those characters have stayed with me for years, and any time I can get back together with the gang I'm all for it.

Since this is an anthology I figured I would leave mini reviews for each book.
This anthology is where authors took their favorite book and made a Halloween scene about it. I have never read any of the actual series and the authors made it so they were standalones for the most part but you really get intrigued to pick up the actual stories.

Sometimes you need a quick fix when reading, especially if you are a busy mama or have a demanding job. You need a tale that is going to tempt you to read further but one that you can quickly gobble up in one sitting. You need a test drive into new author territory before jumping behind the wheel. Anotholgies like Eye Candy are the perfect places to test drive authors' words before you thrust full throttle into their books.

Tons of great reading in this compilation of Halloween stories by some of my fav authors. Some are funny, some are really scare (Tijan!) and they all have sexy over the top steam!

These read like long well developed bonus scenes that continue the stories of my favorite characters. Each author has a chance to delve into these new scenes so they don't feel rushed and the reader isn't teased nor cheated. They were all wins for me -this felt more like Christmas for me tha
