“Cassie likes to play tricks on Halloween.
 She spends the whole year planning – constructing the perfect sexy costume to attract just the right sort of man. He has to be tall, strong, handsome, and totally self-confident. And, of course, too horny to expect the sort of trick Cassie is about to play on him.
 It’s Halloween again.
 Let the fun begin!”

Unfortunately the fun for me didn’t start in this book until the end when Cassie gets tricked herself.  There was nothing redeemable about our lead character, Cassie is self centered woman who spends the year thinking up ways to screw and then demean any man stupid enough to fall into her trap. I kept hoping that for once there was a point of view shift and by some miracle the book would be about Cassie’s best friend Brooke who is likable and who I enjoyed watching come out of her shell.  And I nearly wooted out loud when she gets up the courage to flirt with her secret crush.

The writing in the book is really good, and if Ms Tower were to write a book based on Brooke I would read it.  But this book fell short when its lead was someone I could neither empathize with nor like.
