Love at first haunt – well, isn’t that the truth?
The story follows Allison, a down to earth woman and an ex psychic. She’s easy to like and her best friend, Tina, is down right hilarious. As the story continues, we meet Logan, the most untouchable bachelor, with a haunting past and house.
This story is full of surprises and tons of laughs. I highly recommend this fun read to all supernatural lovers!

Love at First Haunt is a great book, like all of Carrie Pulkinen’s. It is the first book in the Haunted Ever After series, and is very similar to the New Orleans Nocturnes series. It is a book about ghosts, medium and psychics, but it is not at all scary. The book is very cute, funny and ironic. Allison is a medium psychic, but is afraid of ghosts after a recent incident. While at a party with her bff, she sees a ghost, and runs out crying. This sparks the interest of the house owner, Logan. In a series of encounters, they are brought together and realize they have a lot in common. Their blossoming relationship is fun to read about, and the characters are great. Despite being psychic and all, they are very realistic and relatable. I can’t wait to read the next book in the series so I can see what is to come of Trent and Tina, Logan and Allison’s best friends.

Was my first read by this author and I was hooked from the start! Allison has a gift that would seem a blessing and a curse to most but she’s learned how to control it for the most part. When she meets Logan she can tell he too has a gift but also some other things going on as well.
This was a good book while some action happens, I also felt like their relationship was super fast and almost rushed.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is a story that grabbed my attention from the beginning. I loved the characters Allison Gray and Logan Mitchell. Instead of love at first sight like most love stories, this one is love because of a haunting by a ghost. The novel is an amazing read. Logan is an empath but he doesn’t know. He meets Alison and his life changes. She teaches him how to block his empath abilities and shows him what love really is. Romance and paranormal go great together. Love at First Haunt: A Ghostly Paranormal Romance (Haunted Ever After Book 1) by Carrie Pulkinen is a rom com, contemporary romance, and thriller. It is the first book in a new series from Carrie and this genre is something that she does oh so well.

Love at First Haunt: A Ghostly Paranormal Romance (Haunted Ever After Book 1)
by Carrie Pulkinen was a great 5 star read. I was pulled in right from the beginning.

Allison is a special person, she can see dead people. When she goes with her best friend to a party, this is where she meets Logan the owner. Logan is an empath and when he sees Allison he could tell she was different and was instantly drawn to her. Fate steps in a few more times and they see each other again.

Can these two get past their fears and secrets to have a relationship?

We get romance, suspense, and so much more with this haunting read. The author does a great job with her writing and you get pulled right in. I look forward to reading more from this series. 1-click and get started today.

Carrie Pulkinen has a way of creating vibrant worlds that draw the reader in. I could not put this book down. The story of Allison and Logan was really exciting and a joy to read. The book included some mystry and excitement as well as love. Allison and Logan found each other and although the journey to their love had some drama, I was happy that they were able to get together. I definitely look forward to the next installment of this series.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I found this fun paranormal romance enjoyable and engaging with great characters and an intriguing storyline. Psychic Medium Allison Gray is scared of ghosts following a traumatic incident in her past. Unfortunately Empath Logan Mitchell is being haunted by a ghost who is making him crazy. Logan’s psychic gift of reading people’s emotions has helped him in the business world however, his gift along with being haunted means that Logan has given up on having a normal life. Then he meets Allison and if only she could overcome her fear of ghosts and especially the one haunting Logan then she could be the one to help him. This story is a romance with a paranormal twist. I loved Allison and Logan and found myself immersed in their story. The chemistry between the characters really came across in the narrative and led to some steamy scenes. The story flowed well making it an easy read and the plot kept me hooked from start to finish. I look forward to reading future books in this new series by Carrie Pulkinen.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Love at First Haunt: A Ghostly Paranormal Romance by Carrie Pulkinen is the first book in the Haunted Ever After series. I was excited to grab this new series by Pulkinen. She always has a lighthearted but fun, romantic story on my TBR pile. This story did not disappoint. Set in Detroit we are introduced to psychic Allison. She is recovering from a bad run-in with a ghost and not much better luck in the dating department. Is the ghost at Logan’s going to change all of that? The characters are fun to read and there is a HEA. This was a fantastic read to get away from the world and relax. I am looking forward to where the series will go and what other ghostly problems will occur.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is my first book read by this author, and it will not be my last. Love at First Haunt: A Ghostly Paranormal Romance (Haunted Ever After Book 1) has a cute, simple plot line. This is a fun, paranormal, romance story that is very intriguing to say the least. The story grabbed my attention from the very beginning. Allison Gray is an intelligent, talented, medium, who uses her gifts to help others. Not long after she was hurt by a former boyfriend, a ghost hunt goes wrong. She has sworn off from any more ghost busting jobs with her team. She leads a quiet boring, safe life, working with her gifts, out of an office in an antique shop. Her best friend invites her to tag along to a party hosted by new in town Logan Mitchell. Logan Mitchell is like her in so many ways, one is he is not looking for a relationship. He just wants to live a normal life. He has bought a house that turns out to be haunted. As things progress with this ghost, he decides to call in help to rid his house of this hostile ghost. The team he calls upon, asks Allison for help. Will she be able to help the ghost crossover? Will his life return to normal? This was a very enjoyable start to the series. So eager to read the next book!

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Straight off we are launched into the sucky situation of Allison (our main protagonist) having to attend a party for a rich and powerful someone who recently brought the massive mansion the party is taking place in, from her friend Tina. Allison doesn’t like the parties, mainly for the vapid and money-hungry guests but also because she can feel all emotions and she knows just how fake all the people around her are.
If I’m being entirely honest – and this is nothing against Pulkinen because I have read some of her other stuff and I have always found it witty and relatable – but I really struggled with this book, especially the whole empath thing. I get that it is a fantasy and I’m all for that, but to say that a room full of people only had money and sex on their minds just is daft. Even people who like all the swanky stuff and a good roll in the hay, have more on their minds than that, and I thought that a character who is a supernatural being like an empath would be aware of this and understand this. By all means, say that she couldn’t stand the party because all the emotions were just too much, but to say that everyone in there wasn’t worth her time except for Logan felt a little harsh. Anywho just my personal opinion, moving swiftly on.
While at this party she locks eyes with Logan, the hunky handsome bit of man that, in spite of his seemingly knee-deep-in-willing-women lifestyle is sad and lonely and Allison senses this, and instantly runs away from it. After being hurt and spurned before she doesn’t want to go through that hurt again so a relationship is just not an option, especially with someone like Logan, who can dip and dash with the best of them.
Whilst making her Cinderella-esque escape (minus the dance with prince charming and the loss of a slipper) she happens upon a crying woman and tries to comfort her. It is only after the woman disappears and she is flooded with overwhelming emotions that she realises that she has seen a ghost. After several turns and twists of fate, Allison and Logan find themselves drawn together against either of their better judgments, their connection and spark undeniable. I will say that I thought their relationship happened a little quickly, but then again I think that of most romances that are similar to this, and considering that this is a book about ghosts and empaths, I don’t think I should nit-pick about the speed of their relationship being unbelievable.
I will say though that Pulkinen has a way of writing characters that makes them feel down-to-earth and relatable. Apart from my earlier issues with the whole party-thing, I found the characters likable and funny. Pulkinen really does do funny well and I really liked how she handled mental health in this. She managed to do it respectfully and with care, without losing the light-heartedness that made the book such a joy to read. I really do recommend Pulkinen and if you like this then you will definitely like License to Bite, that book is funny and steamy and just a delight to read.
