Cozy up with a mug of hot cider on a dark night and fall under the spell of this Halloween anthology!
Overall, I did like the Eye Candy anthology. Some of the stories can be read without reading the series they are connected, and some you might want to read the series to get acquainted with the characters.
First up is Fallen Crest Nightmare by Tijan. Now I did feel like should have read the series before reading this story. I honestly didn't feel any emotional ties to the characters, so it was a little struggle for me. However, the story was pretty darn creepy. Reading it was kind of like watching a Wes Craven movie. For that factor it was an all right read.
Next up So Much More by J. Daniels. Another story were it ties to a series. I get the feeling that this story was to tie up any loose ends in the series. However, the ending was adorable. Seriously, adorable. Overall, I liked the story.
Getting Down by Helena Hunting was the third read. This is one of my top favorite's in the anthology. I seriously wanted to go back and read book that it's tied to, because it was that good. Plus, it didn't focus on the couple, but the friends. I seriously wanted the one girl to ditch her fiancee and get with his cousin. My wish didn't happen yet. I'm hoping it happens in the next book. Fingers cross that my wish comes true. Anyway, a fun read.
Following was Unsafe Haven by Bella Jewel. Another quick Halloween read that was kind of cute. I mean the couple Jade and Oliver are adorable. Then a bunch of weird things happen, and you start to think something sinister is about to happen.
You can never go wrong with jumping aboard the crazy train in The Pumpkin Was Stuffed by Tara Sivec. Now this is part of a series, but it's hilarious. I definitely wanted to see how all this went down in the previous story. This was crazy funny, and I expected nothing less from Tara.
Yep, I did had a good time with Eye Candy. Yes, there were some stories that were all right, but majority of them were a lot of fun. So, if you are in the mood for spooktacular read, you might give Eye Candy a try.
