Hello friends and fellow book lovers! Halloween is a little over a week away and I wanted to make a post about my favorite Halloween romances. I’m by no means an expert in this topic. However, I’ve read a decent amount of Halloween romances and I have at least 5 I can recommend. I know most people don’t think of Halloween as a traditionally romantic holiday but these books challenged that notion so let’s get into them.
1. Her Halloween Treat
The first Halloween romance I’m recommending is one I read last year. Entitled Her Halloween Treat, this is the first book in Tiffany Reisz’s Men at Work series. This one features a romance between Joey and Chris. Joey is Chris’s best friend’s little sister and they reconnect while she’s visiting for her brother’s wedding.
If you’ve read anything by Tiffany Reisz, then you’ll know this book is bound to be incredibly steamy. Tiffany Reisz just writes god-tier smut and this book is no expectation. It’s also a little over 200 pages so it’s a pretty quick read if you want to cuddle up with your blanket and a pumpkin spice latte or your hot drink of choice.
2. True Love and Candy Corn
The next book is one I read early in October and it’s True Love and Candy Corn. It’s a short story that’s only about 20 pages. However, it’s such an adorable read as it follows two different timelines. It starts with Rebecca when she’s 13 who has a crush on her college-age neighbor and then it fast-forwards to 9 years later. Even though it’s short, it was pretty sweet and was the perfect read when I was taking a bath. If you want something super quick but with some Halloween vibes, I recommend this one.
3. Mating the Huntress (Monsters and Mates #1)
The next book is one I read earlier this year and I LOVED it. Talia Hibbert is one of my new favorite authors and this book is the perfect Halloween treat. It follows a romance between a werewolf and a werewolf hunter. It’s also a fated mates story if you couldn’t tell by the series. These two have the sweetest romance and I especially loved what happened when Charity went over to Luke’s the first time. If you’re looking for a steamier Halloween read like Her Halloween Treat, then this one should be up your alley.
4. Crazy, Sexy, Ghoulish (Crazy, Sexy, Ghoulish #1)
This was actually a book I read in September and I’m excited to continue the series. This one follows a second-chance romance between Nora and Brendan. These two have an odd connection to each other and I commend G.G. Andrew for being able to write a romance about this. It gives some spooky Halloween vibes as most of it is set at a haunted house attraction Nora works at and Brendan is a HUGE horror buff.
I’ve only read the first book in this series but I’m excited to continue it. It seems like it’s going to be a solid Halloween romance series.
5. The Mindfuck Series
The final series I have to recommend is the Mindfuck series by S.T. Abby. This isn’t technically a Halloween romance but it’s close enough. This follows a romance between a serial killer and the FBI agent she falls in love with. This book is incredibly intense yet has a great love story. However, it might be too much for some to handle as this book features a lot of disturbing scenes including rape, murder, pedophilia, tortue and SO much more.
The subject matter won’t be for everyone but if you can, I’d read it. I binged the entire 5-book series in just a few days. Once you start reading them, you really can’t stop. If anything, it makes me want to read more serial-killer romances lmao.
Those are 5 Halloween romance books I’m recommending for 2020. I know Halloween isn’t traditionally a romantic holiday but maybe you’ll find something you like. There aren’t many lists focused on Halloween romances, either. Hopefully, you’ll find some new Halloween reads before the holiday actually gets here.
