Prah, Constantine & Baryeh Reviews: His Halloween Kisses by Kathy Bosman #PrahConstantineAndBaryehReviews

So for Halloween month, we went with the season and read a Halloween themed romance, His Halloween Kisses by Kathy Bosman.

Here's the blurb
Ali’s never been so scared. She’s housesitting for a colleague on Halloween night, but the lights have gone out, and terrible noises and crashes send her imagination into overdrive. When her brother’s friend comes to her rescue, he kisses her in the dark three times. Once back in the light, Ali is embarrassed at allowing him to kiss her. Byron tries to ignore his strong attraction for Ali, especially seeing he’s not ready for a relationship. When Ali finds out why, she runs away, but life has other plans. What can bring them together? Fate, faith, or the memory of his Halloween kisses?


My Impressions
The book starts off with the heroine alone in a haunted house, which was very movie-like (and in case you haven't met me before, this is a good thing). When Byron comes to the heroine's rescue it seems they are in the hands of fate as three kisses ensure.

I liked the fact that both Ali and Byron had baggage from previous relationships and were both not looking for love, but obviously fate had other plans. Ali and Byron's attraction starts off from the moment they meet and they never really waver in that. I also love the cover. It's beautiful and gives tribute to the season without being overdone!

As sweet and innocent as Byron and Ali are (and I love sweet romance), I couldn't connect with them. Sweet kisses and an inappropriate gift (even a cute one), fall short of what the story could have been, because we do not get to spend enough time with the two as a couple and to see them grow together. I felt like a good chunk of story was missing.

Please remember to check out the reviews from Prah and Constantine.

  1. Great review Empi. The first scene was totally movie-like. I disagree about the connection, though. I'm sure if it had been a full length novel they would have spent more time together.

    1. Yes, I noticed from your review that you are in disagreement about the connection. I think even another chapter would have helped - didn't really need to be full-length

  2. Interesting. So you're saying it would have worked better as a full novel?

    1. For me, yes. It would have given the reader the opportunity to experience the progression of their love
