EYE CANDY – A Halloween Anthology Review



Not having read the Fallen Crest series I was a little lost with the characters and their connections in Tijan’s short story. Without that….this was one scary, horror novella. The whole story is a bit uncomfortable from beginning to end. There are characters with drinking problems (despite being in college…I think), a serial killer on the lose, and just all around odd relationships. I didn’t feel that it truly fit in with the other more jovial novellas of the anthology. But for those that are fans of darker romance…this could beep your alley.

SO MUCH MORE by J. Daniels

MY BAMA BOYS. I laughed. I cried. I needed a minute to compose myself. Then I cried again. Daniels’ gives us another look into each Bama Boy & Girl in our lovable gang and how they are handling life. There’s Ben & Mia with adorable Prince Nolan (#RYAN! OMG! J BETTER WRITE THE ONE STORY WE’VE ALL BEEN WAITING FOR!) Then we have the  jaw-dropingly dirty Reed and Beth who somehow have a heartfelt and naughty  moment at the same time.  Luke and Tessa’s short story will leave you in tears (with only a little laugher ) but OMG i can’t give any of them away. And finally CJ…sweet, southern, sexy CJ will leave you all in bouncy squeaky masses of happiness. I LOVED THIS LOOK IN TO OUR BAMA FAMILY!

GETTING DOWN by Helena Hunting

Hunting’s new world of Bane and Ruby is back! We’ve got a sexy sneak peek in to the new couple’s life as a Halloween party turns in to a costume gala. We UNFORTUNATELY get to see Amie with her fiancé Armstrong as he continues to be the douche-canoe (I’d say pardon my French but we all know we’re supposed to hate him) we all know and hate him to be. BUT Hunting likes to tease us to the story of HOOKING UP as there is an interesting testosterone battle between Armstrong and his brother, Lex. WHAT IS HAPPENING? Now we must all wait for Amie’s story, HOOKING UP coming later this year to find out what’s going to go down.

UNSAFE HAVEN by Bella Jewel

Jewel’s short story was another heartfelt halloween party. I don’t know the previous characters stories but Jewel does a good job setting it up with letting you know who the story is truly going to be about. We meet Jade and Oliver, two shy and quiet people who work at a women’s shelter and obviously come from rougher pasts. When terror strikes the shelter on the night of the Halloween party, somehow Oliver and Jade have to help figure out what’s going on. All while navigating how they may feel for one another.


Ok this last novella was just plain wacky….so much craziness! We follow Noel as she tries to navigate her family during a halloween themed wedding. There’s a neighborly feud with the house across the street the makes her father bonkers….I mean i was generally embarrassed for this man and his antics. Noel’s new husband Sam is sweet and caring but his best friends (who is the groom) is also on the wacky side. Although this novella is one the oddball side, it’s sweet and ends on a happy note.

A frightfully good time! Dive into these Halloween novellas from bestselling authors Tijan, J. Daniels, Helena Hunting, Bella Jewel and Tara Sivec. Featuring stories set in the worlds of their popular series.

Tijan’s Fallen Crest crew are back for a weekend of mischief that takes a sinister turn; all four couples from J.
