I always look for something quick and fun to read for the Halloween season. Of course, most of my reading is in the genre of paranormal but I love a good Halloween book. Crazy, Sexy, Ghoulish was given to me in exchange for an honest review and honestly... I loved it.
Synopsis from Amazon:
A zombie. A vampire. A witch. Nora Travers is none of these things. But the former mean girl has to hide behind costumes if she wants to scare the pants off Brendan, the horror geek with the power to make or break her haunted house. Because Brendan is the nerd Nora used to torment in middle school. But now he's all grown up and so scary hot, even her zombie heart starts beating. And he's looking a bit too long at her bloody fishnet stockings. Nora has to be everything she's not this Halloween so she can hide her true self and terrify Brendan. Not to mention protect her heart. Because what happens when he realizes she’s a monster behind the mask?
First off, this is a novella so it isn't a long book. I knew this going in but I was sad when I got to the end because I wanted it to keep going. It was fun, it was sassy, and it had a high level of engagement. Girl was mean to boy, girl grows up, boy comes back to town, girl likes boy and regrets what she did, boy finds out who she is and leaves, girl apologizes... Nothing deep but perfect for an October read. The haunted house setting, Nora's daily costume changes, and her acting were a lot of fun to read. I read the whole story in about half an hour while on the treadmill and if it hadn't ended, I would still be exercising because I wouldn't have wanted to stop reading. I would definitely read other books by this author but I would also love a second novella with Brendan and Nora, even if they weren't the featured characters.
