‘Twas 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?

Fisher had lived his life as controlled and predictable as possible, except for one factor–Hunter Long his best friend and housemate. Now he must decide on whether he may lose his friend, or learn to live a little and not be so uptight.

Fisher and Hunter really are a dynamic duo, which I enjoyed getting to read about. Both of them have unique stories, to fit their opposite personalities, yet they are able to find common ground and not only become best friends for the better part of their life, but also to nurture the budding feelings they seem to harbor towards one another. Hunter is extremely outgoing and you can tell why people tend to be drawn to him. Fisher on the other hand is more if an introvert preferring a more structured life because of his upbringing. Each have large hearts and want to best for the other, despite their differences, which truly made these two endearing to me.

This was a nice light and playful story, which was exactly what I needed and was looking for. While I really enjoyed the characters, one thing that remained a mystery to me was what Hunter’s being a vampire really had to do with the story. It didn’t seem to play a large role in the story, and I would have enjoyed the story just as much without this element. It did not take away from the story either, because Hunter and Fisher just have such larger than life personalities.

I really enjoyed the romantic development and progress throughout the story. It felt very genuine to me, as if I can find it being played out in real life somewhere. This made me feel more emotionally attached to both the characters and the outcome. If I was looking for a nice playful yet romantic story I would definitely pick this one up again
