As HALLOWEEN TREATS is an anthology, the rating of this publication (⭐️⭐️⭐️ 1/2 ) is based upon the aggregate rating for all four stories, as follows:



BUY ME 2 — ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️


RIDING RED — ⭐️⭐️⭐️3/4






Elementary school teacher Raven Treat has a secret admirer. Well, maybe not so secret. His name is Jack Bates and he’s a successful architect in Seattle. Jack’s adorable nephew, Scott, is a student in Raven’s class. Little Scotty’s school happens to be near Jack’s office, so it’s no biggie for Uncle Jack to pick up his nephew from school.

One fateful day, Jack sees Raven and it’s insta-love on his part. Raven, a curvy, luscious lady, has noticed Jack, but thinks her chances with him are slim to none.  Little does she know that the fabulous apartment she’s currently renting at an unbelievably affordable rate is in a building owned by none other than Jack Bates.

Jack finally corners Raven and they agree to meet then next evening at the school’s annual Halloween Party. Jack stipulates that they’ll have dinner, too, and a shaky Raven agrees.  Little does Raven know that she’s the main entree . . . .

Halloween Treats is the smutty little story we’ve come to expect from team Alexa Riley. The sex is pretty explicit, but vanilla. Jack didn’t strike this reader as the usual testosterone-laden Alpha male (surprisingly) but what really did strike this reader was the use of the many, many well-worn tropes — the hottie, wildly successful Seattle architect, living in the high rise (hello, hello?), the naive teacher who lands the incredible living space that’s too good to be true — I could go on and on. And of course, the adorable little child who is ultimately the matchmaker.

Team Alexa Riley has written some deliciously, delightful, naughty Halloween stories (Taking What’s Wicked comes to mind), but were this not part of a Halloween Anthology, I’d suggest digging around for a better treat in Alexa Riley’s bag of goodies.




– REVIEW –  BUY ME 2 –


Mandy Burch has been at the beck and call of wealth casino owner Charles Townsend for the past thirty days. As a favor to the Cortez brothers, Mandy agreed to be Charles’ assistant, and boy, is she ever glad time is up on this assignment. Charles has been nothing but an obnoxious tool, and even though Mandy finds him attractive, she’s moving on. (Or is she?)

Mandy has an epiphany and decides it’s time for her to live a little, so she offers her virgin self up for none other that the Mistress Auction! (Go big or go home, right?) It turns out our Mandy has an ache that needs to be filled, so being auctioned off to the highest bidder is the answer to fulfillment (okay, well, sexual fulfillment . . .  maybe). Of course, the heavy breather, Charles, has been lusting after Mandy from the moment he laid eyes on her, so when he’s tipped off that she’s being offered up for the Halloween Mistress Auction, he’s all in.

Buy Me 2 is the second offering in Team Alexa Riley’s successful Mistress Auction Series and it does not disappoint. Charles is insta loving Alpha male obsessed with owning his mate, Mandy. Add to that mix, Charles is a Dominant, so handcuffs come into play.  Oh, and he’s a bit of a creeper/stalker, too.  So, readers — be prepared.

Buy Me 2 is an example of what Team Alexa Riley does best — it’s smutty, dirty quick read, meant to entertain and stimulate. As with most of their stories, Buy Me 2 comes with a STRONG GRAPHIC WARNING, as it contains themes of explicit sexual encounters, BDSM, and I’d even add kidnapping. A bedtime story for the grown ups, Buy Me 2 is not for the kiddies.
