Finn and Carter are back in the US and attending a Halloween party.

The book is told in Finn's POV again, but now ends in a HEA.

Part of the Carter and Finn Series and must be read in order:
Diplomacy of the Heart by Mel Gough Frightfully Good Kissing (Carter and Finn #2) by Mel Gough
This was okay. Given how much I like this author, I kinda hoped for more. The couple was cute together but I didn't get much from the story beyond that, and the Halloween theme/prompt wasn't as interesting as I'd hoped. Granted I hadn't read the story that introduces this couple, but I don't think it was the lack of familiarity that was the problem and this snippet didn't entice me to read more about Carter and Finn.

I need to stop reading short romance stories. I don't think I can be objective any more.

The story was fine, but I didn't care about the characters or what was happening. This is likely because I didn't read the novella that precedes this story. I'd thought this could stand on its own, but in hindsight, I think the novella may have been necessary reading. Felt like I was just reading an epilogue or bonus chapter from a bigger story. Didn't feel like a short story in and of itself.

So, it straight up says in the blurb to read the novella before this- and you need to! No introduction of characters or enticement is placed in this. This is honestly a follow up story for those that read and enjoyed the original story. A check in years alter to see that Carter and Finn are still together, are stronger than they were, and are settling down. It was a very cute follow up meant to please readers- and that it did for me!

A lovely peek into Carter and Finn's life three years down the road. They're in the US and more in love than before. While Carter could've been a bit more romantic Finn's reaction was very exuberant. A lovely spicy ending. I hope we get more of these two in the future. ...more

Short but sweet

This was a cute short read. Halloween can be a great time of year with candy and costumes. This was a very short read.

Mel Gough loves writing about love – but with a twist. Nominated for the 2019 Selfies Awards, her bisexual romantic suspense novel He is Mine is a typical Mel Gough story. She needs her HEA fix, but on the way there will be thorns and fire, and sometimes brimstone. All right, that might be over the top, especially since her stories are firmly based in the real world - though not always in the here ...more
