Review: Her Halloween Treat - Tiffany Reisz
It was a devastating dirty trick - Joey Silvia just found out her boyfriend of two years is married. What. A. Dick. Joey knows her best chance to get over one guy is to get under another. Of course, heading home to her family's remote cabin in Oregon poses some challenges in the "available men" department...until she discovers this cabin comes with its own hot handyman!
Holy crap, Chris Steffensen. When did her brother's best friend turn into a hard-bodied pile of blond-bearded hotness? He's the perfect Halloween treat - and a surprisingly dirty rebound guy. For a couple of weeks, anyway. Except that Chris has other ideas...like proving to Joey that this blast from the past is a whole lot more than a naughty Halloween hookup.

As a huge fan of Tiffany Reisz's Original Sinners series of course I wanted to read this new trilogy the minute I heard about it. I always know I'm in for a hot read with Tiffany's books but Her Halloween Treat was much lighter and more funny than her other series, it's still hot as hell but it's also full of humorous banter and an adorable romance. It's not often I give full 5 star ratings to contemporary romance stories, it takes something a bit special to get the top rating, but this story totally deserves it - it hit the spot perfectly and I enjoyed every single minute of it.
Joey decided to surprise her long-distance boyfriend when she was travelling home from Hawaii to Oregon for her brother's wedding so she stopped off in LA for a flying visit. Only to find him at home in the loving arms of his wife, yes that's right, her boyfriend of two years was already married, he just never bothered to mention the fact. Understandably heartbroken she heads to her family cabin early planning to lick her wounds alone before the wedding ceremony. What she wasn't expecting was to bump into her brother's best friend Chris when she got there. The nerdy boy she used to know has grown up into a total hottie and like her best friend is always saying "the best way to get over a man is to get under a new one" so she decides Chris is the perfect guy to have a holiday fling with before she's forced to go back to reality and working with her cheating ex.
I absolutely adored this couple, they have brilliant chemistry but they also have a strong friendship and a lot of history together. The banter between them was hilarious right from the get go and I could happily have read a book with double the number of pages just to spend more time with them. Chris always had a thing for Joey and now that she's finally noticed him he's going to do everything in his power to show her how good they'd be together on a permanent basis. I completely fell for the main couple but I also loved the side characters, Joey's best friend Kira was hilarious (please tell me she's going to get a book!) and I really loved her brother and his husband too.
Tiffany Reisz has another hit on her hand with this series and I can't wait to read the next two books!
