About the book:
Trick…or wicked treat!
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.
Joey had the shock of her life when she found out her boyfriend of two years is actually married. Going home to the family’s lake cabin for her brother’s wedding provides the perfect getaway to lick her wounds. Meeting up with Chris, her brother’s best friend, who’s turned into a super hot lumberjack, makes forgetting her cheating, lying ex very easy. How did she not know that Chris was such a bossy, sexy, dirty talker?
Chris was in love with Joey, the younger sister of his best friend, since high school, so hearing she’d be coming back for a visit, Chris wanted Joey’s family cabin fixed up just right. Chris is ecstatic that he’s finally caught Joey’s attention, and he’s determined to keep her!
I love the idea of fixing up an old fashioned cabin by the lake, and from the description Chris was very talented in many ways *waggles eyebrows*! Chris and Joey’s connection was easy and fast. Since they were together so much as teenagers they knew each other well even after all the years gone by. Chris and Joey had chemistry to spare and together they were wickedly hot! Oh my, Tiffany Reisz can write some scorching scenes!
Fall is one of my favorite times year, with the crisp cold edge in the air, and the changing color of leaves, and Ms. Reisz made this setting come alive with her vivid writing! I wanted to bolt out of town to go stay in a woodsy mountain cabin! I could just about smell the pine as I read:
Sunlight trickled through the high canopy of towering Douglas firs and red cedar trees. Ferns and bear grass lined the edge of the trail like a soft green fence. The last week of rain had left the trails muddy and the air scented with pine and cedar and everything clean and alive.
Her Halloween Treat was a sweet and super hot second chance romance! I was immediately hooked and could’ve easily read this in one sitting with it being 224 pages. I can’t wait for the next Men at Work story: Her Naughty Holiday!
