Quick Rundown: Last Halloween Nikki Carson got more than she could hope for after meeting up with Patrick Nolan in a dark alcove at her boss’s Halloween party. A year later, Nikki is prepared to meet Patrick for round two sporting a dominatrix kitty costume for the annual Halloween party. She is determined to find out why he never contacted her and to make an impression on Patrick that lasts beyond a one-night-stand.
First Impression: Upon my first look at the gorgeous cover I knew Cari Quinn was going to bring the naughty to this Halloween novella, so I grabbed the bowl of candy corn, lit the jack-o-lantern and settled in for a quick holiday treat.
The Hero: Construction worker, Patrick Nolan not only likes to get dirty on the job but also enjoys working up a sweat in the bedroom. With his piercing eyes and buttery voice, Patrick propositions Nikki to take their party to a more private place in the house. The question is, does Nikki know it’s Patrick, or does she think it is his twin (her boss) when they meet for a quick tryst.
The Heroine: Nikki Carson is the assistant to Easton Nolan, Patrick’s twin brother. She knows it is not wise to hook up, sexually, with her boss, however his twin brother is a different matter.
What worked: With all of the books I have read by Ms. Quinn, she always delivers passionate chemistry with her characters and tangible atmospheres to draw the reader in and witness the story unfold.
What didn’t work: Unfortunately the story was too short to really have the character development I crave, however, the bases were covered in the plot and the attraction was evident with the main characters. The secondary characters provided just enough intrigue to revisit in the future.
Final Conclusion: Bad Kitty is a sensually scrumptious treat for any Halloween lover that enjoys the naughty over spooky!
“You like caramel apples?” she managed. “Never tried them. But caramel nipples suit me just fine.”
