'Tis the night before Halloween, and Fisher Roberts wishes it was over, not being a fan of this or any other holiday.  But he tolerates it because his roommate/best friend Hunter Long takes a childish glee in all things Halloween.  And Fisher has a vested interest in keeping Hunter happy.  If only he could find the nerve to tell his childhood friend that he loves him, and has for a very long time.

Fisher thinks Hunter is carrying things a bit far this year, though.  First Hunter claims to be a vampire, and he just won’t let the silly joke go.  Then he forces Fisher to go to a costumed Halloween party which Fisher would rather avoid, especially when he realizes where it’s being held, and whose house it is. Things at Fisher’s job might just be going south, too, when he receives a mysterious summons to report to the editor’s office the next morning.  And then Fisher goes and does something stupid—like kissing Hunter!

Bad leads to worse when Fisher ends up at the Halloween party from Hell, and he learns something that threatens to destroy his and Hunter’s relationship forever.  Running from his fears, Fisher encounters a strange young man with an unusual resemblance to Leonardo di Caprio, who shows him things he never realized before, truths about his life and the people in it.

Can Fisher find his way back to Hunter, and can he find the courage to do what his heart wishes?

Brandi’s Review:
I have to say the title is a little misleading, but it ties very well into the story.  This is marked as a paranormal romance, and I felt the paranormal part of it took a back seat to the actual love story of Fisher and Hunter.  But for me, that was very OK and was more of a fun element to through into the mix.

I have to say I loved Fisher.  I thought his character was very realistic and loveable.  Fisher was the more sensitive of the two, but he also was the most lost.  And we watched him find himself throughout the book.  Hunter was just a sweet, sexy man that ended up surprising me when all was said and done. 

The romance between the two was lovely and well plotted.  As I said, the paranormal part was thrown in, more like another issue that required acceptance but all in all it was a very sweet book.  I recommend to anyone that loves m/m romance, as this is one of my favorites.
