It’s hard to miss your boyfriend when he’s standing right next to you being a sarcastic nimrod. I have a temper and he has an attitude. Our antics inside and outside the bedroom are off the charts. Half the time we’re giving each other a hard time just to get to the good times.

Things get more complicated when he’s all those things and dead as well.

I get that this was supposed to be comedy but it was just too corny for me

This is a funny, quirky and spooky read, perfect entertainment for Halloween time.
Loved it!!! This book was everything I could expect from a romantic comedy PNR. It was hilarious, quirky and just overall awesome. It had a really cute storyline, mixed in with all those funny dialogues and monologues and a very sweet ghost hero who made my heart hurt as much as he made me laugh.
You guys really need to read Evans and Sammi's story😍❣️❣️ It's silly, crazy, cheesy and everything incredible. An amazing Halloween treat ;)

What the heck did I just read? There is good weird and there’s bad weird and this was definitely in the bad side of it. No idea what to think about it and how you even get an idea like that. I don’t even know what to say.

If you don’t take this book too seriously, it can be enjoyable. It was over the top silly and cheesy and that’s exactly how it was meant to be. Ghosts and pirates and beer-and-brownies, oh my. A perfectly corny & quick Halloween story. ...more

4.5 ghostly stars!

Before You Ghost is a spooky novella that will make you laugh until you cry and have you believing that love is stronger than death. Though short in pages, it is not short on the feels and fun, and I loved it!

It is hilariously funny with the sweetest romance. Sammi and Evan love to fight and make up and that’s true even now that Evan is no longer living. They won’t let death keep them apart though, and I loved as they navigated their new normal with the same fire they’ve always

As you can tell, this is a paranormal read. It is a shorter read. About 80 pages, so it's perfect for between novels or when you only have an hour or so free. This is more of a silly read, so if you are the kind of person to roll your eyes at the ridiculous, you may not enjoy this book, but if you are familiar with these authors, you probably know how silly they can get. (They act like 12 year old boys!) ;) While it is filled with goofiness, there is romance involved. While one is a ghost, and t ...more

This story is a hard one to rate. The emotional parts are amazing. The rest of it is just over the top humor that is so far fetched I often didn't find it funny. But it was a nice escape.

I'd love to see Helena and Debra write something together, like this, but with humor tamed way back. I think it'd be amazing.

Okay, I have to start out by saying that the beginning of this is probably one of the most hilarious ways to start a book I have ever read! And the story just keeps getting more hilarious and out there and had me laughing so much all the way through. It was a very quick read, I mean it’s only 79 pages. But not only is it short, it just was a page-turner for the story itself. Being a ghost, the sexy parts, the dangerous ghosts, rabid raccoons, lightning strikes, and even birds that like to curse. ...more

Oh my- this mini novella is just the kind of silly, light hearted and bizarre fun you need for the Halloween season! 🎃

It all begins with Sammi orgasming her boyfriend right over the Lover’s Lane cliff. Only she can’t seem to be sad because Ryan is not gone. Though he’s not longer corporeal, his ghost lingers. With a hook like that what are you waiting for?!! What ensues is tons of giddily weird and eccentric shenanigans with a menagerie of other supernatural and magical creatures and ghoulies. I

A Humorous Halloweenie Boo-k

What a quick, quirky, Halloween read! I found myself chuckling at the crazy things that happened throughout this story. You must go in with a clear head and an open mind. Paranormal isn’t my normal genre but this was fun. A book that you can quickly read in one sitting that I think you’ll be pleased with the ending when you get there. Ghosts, rabid raccoons, urine bolts, and crazy talking birds are just a glimpse into this humorous boo-k.

More trick than treat

Make no bones about it, this Halloween treat is, shall we say... not good. I have no idea where this writing duo even came up with half the stuff in here. It WAS semi-entertaining, and I DID stick around til the end, but that was purely out of my need to see how this all played out. I'm a big fan of Hunting's work and I typically love quirky comedy, but this humor took a nose dive off a cliff (much like our hero) very early on in the story. If you're in the mood for somethin

This surprise Halloween story by Romancelandia's favorite besties: Helena Hunting and Debra Anastasia, is a hilarious and unique story. What I could tell immediately is that it is obvious that Helena and Debra has an absolute blast writing this novella! I can imagine them hysterical trying to one up each other with ridiculousness, maybe trying to see if that could make the other do spit takes.

I haven't read very many ghost paranormal romance but this one had me laughing out loud. The struggles

At first I thought this is funny.
Then when it went a bit further it was more serious.
I can't imagine if my boyfriend passes and is a ghost beside me. I would be happy to have not lost him at all, but this just makes it all the more clear.
I did enjoy it because it had lost of funny parts in it, but the ghost part made me just sad, because that I did take serious.

Good halloween read!

Before You Ghost is a delightful, spooky treat from authors Debra Anastasia and Helena Hunting.

Sammi and Evan have always run hot… both inside and outside the bedroom. So when some particularly steamy antics land Evan on the other side of alive, they have to work together to figure out exactly what happened, and Evan has to figure out how to keep Sammi safe from the nefarious forces that were involved in his untimely demise.

Anastasia and Hunting bring all of the humor and over-the-top story te

This book had me laughing at the ridiculousness of events. It was silly and puerile and fun.

However it was also more touching and emotional than I was expecting it to be.

An enjoyable quick Halloween read f 45om two wonderful authors
Really funny at moments but depressing as hell at the end. The writing is really bad but it’s still really quick to get through. NOT A ROMACE! DEFINITELY NOT A ROMANCE in the end but I think that’s a given, what with the premise. I read it after Halloween but it’s a one that fits that theme if you don’t mind feeling a bit dissatisfied.

Huge Helena fan and I do realize this was a comedy. I giggled once or twice but for the most part I think this might possibly be the stupidest thing I've ever read.

What a fun, quick read! I'm not one to read about ghosts, but if it's Helena and Debra writing, sign me up! I laughed, my heartstrings were pulled, and I was sucked into this fun little mystery about Evan and Sammi. It was a unique story, had fun secondary characters and just a good, light-hearted book to read!

It was so very short. But funny, cute, sad, heartbreaking - but most of all silly and ridiculous. And I loved reading it. It was the perfect story to read on Halloween! ☺

If you're in the mood for a Halloween treat from Helena Hunting and Debra Anastasia, then pick up Before You Ghost.

Sammi and Evan's love story is hot all the way around. They fight passionately and love passionately and it's the latter that has pushed Evan over the edge (of a mountain quite literally) and he's joined the ranks of the ghosts of Lover's Peak.

There are many ghosts who grace Sammi and Evan with their presence throughout this humorous and over-the-top novella, not to mention the rabi

It has been a long time since I have read a paranormal story but I made an exception when I heard about this one.

Sammi and Evan's story is silly and funny. But at the same time I also felt the sadness when they realise that their time together is up. Or is it? Their relationship goes beyond the grave and the secondary characters both the living and the dead are a hoot. The timeline is actually only a few days but we get a closure with the epilogue.
