Summary: Aran loves Halloween. It’s the one time of year when he gets to reveal his true form without fear of the mythical government agents coming after him. When he meets shy, sexy Booker at a Halloween party, he breaks his rule of never taking someone home when he’s in his alien form. Now he’ll find out if having an alien lover is something Booker can handle, or if Area 51 will become Aran’s new address.
Review: Aran has been on this planet for the past eight years. His love of travel made him leave his family on his home planet knowing that he will never be able to return. He assumes a human appearance for his everyday life but Halloween is the one time that he can be in his true form and not make people run away screaming or have the military take him away and experiment on him.
He meets Booker, a sexy man dressed as a devil, at his neighbor’s Halloween party and the connection is so intense that he breaks his rule and brings the man home for a night of awesome sex. Booker soon realizes that Aran’s costume is not really a costume. Instead of running for his life, Booker is cautiously intrigued. Aran answers all of Booker’s questions and puts him at ease. After a wonderful night together, Aran wakes up alone in bed. Saddened and more than a little fearful for his safety, Aran manages to fall back into his daily routine. Three days later, on Halloween night, will it be a trick or a treat when Aran opens his door?
I really adored this little story. Aran was interesting and engaging and I loved the descriptions of his true appearance. While I did like Booker, not much time was spent on fleshing him out. This is a very short story that would have been so much better if it had been longer but was still very enjoyable.
