Livia Ellis is blond with blue eyes and comments that she only runs if a gun-wielding maniac is chasing her. She is a lover of yoga and a bit of a shoe hound and says she may have had issues passing up handbags. Currently, she is trying to learn to play the Irish harp. She enjoys both theater and concerts, as well as reading fantasy and science fiction. She admits she adores Star Trek and has a picture of herself (dressed as a nun) and the late Patrick Swayze (dressed as a medieval warrior) in a frame (yes – she did cry when he died).
Ellis describes herself as a perpetual student with a vivid imagination although she admits that she is only sexually adventurous on paper. She says she never knows what to say when people end a conversation with ‘god bless.’ Ellis occasionally plays the lottery – but generally only when she’s feeling really poor. She loves to travel and speaks French fluently. She is always happy to find readers who enjoy what she writes.

After reading the first Memoirs of a Gigolo novella, I felt compelled to continue following along with Oliver's life. Lucky for me, this month is October. With October comes Halloween. And with Halloween, this year, comes this great short story from Livia Ellis.
Because this was a side story to the main Memoirs of a Gigolo series, I think the author felt that she could take the liberty of changing the POV. Instead of following along with Oliver narrating, the readers gets to see Oliver from the outside, from another character's POV. Happy Halloween Oliver is a story from Olga's view-point. This really was a good choice I think. The reader gets a small glimpse into her character in book one, but this shows a much different side of her.
Is this Halloween special spooky? Well, no. It's not that kind of Halloween. It's a sexy Halloween. It's everything you'd expect when the main characters are escorts and big spending clients. I think the setting, a party full of alcohol, barely dressed and naked men and women, and over the top extravagance, was great. The descriptions throw you in the story. I was there beside the narrator experiencing the various "acts" that she witnessed and even those she took part it.
I think it was also great to get glimpses of some of the interesting characters, clients and escorts alike. I have a feeling that they'll come into play later in the series and I can't wait.
