View all 8 comments. Nov 26, Amy rated it it was amazing Shelves: Something about her stories and her style of writing draws me in every. I fell totally in love with Nate and Lucas. And Nate's family too. For most of the story anyway.
There was a little while when I wasn't very happy with Nate's mom, but she redeemed herself in the end. I think Keira Andrews' writing has come a long way since this series was written. Her newer works are perfection in my eyes, but this story was very enjoyable and I'm glad I read it: Oct 25, Riina Y.
Sequel to Eight Nights. I enjoyed getting to see Lucas and Nate living together, starting their own life and all, but sadly things never go smooth, do they? Nate's dad surprised me by being super amazingly awesome. Aug 28, Lara rated it really liked it Shelves: Very satisfying conclusion to the love story of Nate and Lucas from Eight Nights. Just the right amount of angst and drama thrown into a sexy continuation of their relationship ups and downs.

I fell head over heels for Andrews' Amish trilogy and was looking forward to reading more of her backlist. The major conflict between the characters isn't really ever discussed and resolved. One day they are broken up and barely even speaking and the next they are back together. And the reason for their breakup? You don't just get over it one day. That should be a slow build towards resolution. Also, the relationship seems very off balance.
Lucas doesn't have man Super disappointed with this book. Lucas doesn't have many friends outside of their relationship and I think that's part of the reason he falls so hard so fast. Plus he was a virgin and very inexperienced. And with no family. I think he fell in love with the idea of a forever with Nate since it offered him so much of what he was missing in his life. His actions once they break up cement this theory in my mind. Besides sex I'm not sure what he's gaining from this relationship.
He gives and gives and gives and gives and doesn't seem to receive much in return.
Besides heartache and half-truths While I really liked this couple in the novella that started the series, I found them un-compelling and lackluster here. Feb 19, Being Human rated it did not like it Shelves: I gave it one star because 1. One of the MCs was so insecure that he ended up cheating on the other MC. And his reason for cheating was so pathetic. It was not because of some misunderstanding or for revenge or retaliation or any of those things. He cheated simply because the other guy stranger found him hot!! So now, he got caught and was sorry for what he had done.
Besides sex I'm not sure what he's gaining from this relationship. That's not to say I'm not interested in the upcoming match between Grayson and Phat. His insecurities, which I believe Nate fed into a bit, and feelings of abandonment really got the best of him. So here's where things went wrong for me. Just because the character forgives easily do I enjoyed this book more than I thought I would. Society has already crumbled, technology is rare and treasured by survivors using it to prepare for the impending complete lack of technology.
What was his excuse? And what did the other MC do? He took the cheating bastard back Dec 29, Shana rated it really liked it Shelves: He does, however, still have a lot of growing up left to do, and a series of his bad decisions drive much of the story. It's interesting to see him growing into his possibilities. Nate, on the other hand, still seems stuck where Eight Nights left him; despite spending the summer in Europe with his parents, he's no closer to telling them of either his orientation or h Main Characters: Nate, on the other hand, still seems stuck where Eight Nights left him; despite spending the summer in Europe with his parents, he's no closer to telling them of either his orientation or his change in major.
He's developed a jealous streak that is actually rather charming most of the time , but he's also gotten prickly to the point that I sometimes found myself wondering what Lucas saw in him. Although the story begins with their living together, the sense that they didn't know each other was pervasive. They had sex--plenty of sex--and got on quite well in that aspect, but found themselves butting heads in other aspects of their lives.
As events played out and they were separated, I wondered if it would even be for the best for them to get back together. That being said, they're still an attractive couple, just a very immature one, both with plenty of room left to find themselves.
There is a large supporting cast, though they rotate through fairly quickly so that the numbers are never overwhelming. Some drove me nuts--I wish Casey hadn't played out the way he did--but others were surprisingly enjoyable; I particularly enjoyed the scenes with Nate's father or Sam. The secondary characters were breathed with just enough life to make them interesting without dragging the focus away from where it belonged, with Lucas and Nate.
As I'd mentioned, a large force in the story is Lucas's bad decisions, though they're not the only key points. Although some of the critical events, whether through Lucas's actions or an outside influence, came as a surprise, none of them struck me as gratuitous. My biggest complaint is the pat ending, when a particular player completely reverses a stance they'd taken regarding Lucas and Nate just in time for family sap; it seemed a little forced, and I'd rather have seen a more natural progression to resolution, rather than a switch being flipped.
I enjoyed the writing in this book rather more than that of Eight Nights , though that may be simply because the author had rather more time to hit their stride. The balance of showing and telling was still excellent, and the dialogue was strong. Interesting if sometimes frustrating characters and a well-crafted story make this an easy book to like.
Although the ending was a bit of a letdown, the rest of the story was charming enough to bear up through the stumble. I'm only sorry that we don't get to find out more about how Lucas and Nate grow into themselves. May 15, Elisa Rolle added it. I first met Lucas and Nate in a short story released under Christmas time last year.
It was a nice story, but as always when the two characters are so nice, I regretted the fact that it was so short. Now the author writes a full lenght novel for them and it's again very nice. Lucas is a young college student; since he was a teen he was always a lonely kid, with a very special relationship with his father, his only relative alive. But soon before he started college, his father passed away from can I first met Lucas and Nate in a short story released under Christmas time last year.
But soon before he started college, his father passed away from cancer, leaving Lucas without any financial worries, but plenty alone. It was not easier for Lucas that first Christmas alone, and so he let the mother of his roommate drags him back home with them where he met her son Nate. Now let me say that Nate is the classical spoiled son of a wealthy family; he is gay but he has no courage to come out with his family and prefers to play the role of the brooding son, the dark one in opposite to his outspoken and sunny big brother.
But outside his family home, Nate is not an angel, and, if I remember well, he seduced Lucas. In this new book, Lucas and Nate decide to live together in the Village, Nate still pretending with his family that he will only share an apartment with Lucas since it's nearer to College. Living together at first seems paradise, but probably both Lucas than Nate have rushed things: Lucas is at his first sexual experience, and he is insecure and still tentative; plus he still believes to be nothing special, and he sees Nate with starry eyes, all the world turns around his lover, and when they are not together, Lucas feels lost.
On the other hand, Nate probably believes that Lucas is just like him, so sure and strong, even if only outside his family home; he doesn't feel necessary to woo and reassure Lucas, since he really doesn't see any reason why Lucas hasn't to be a strong and independent man like him A lot of unspoken words between them lead Lucas to make a very big mistake, but I really haven't the heart to blame him in total; sure Nate wasn't cheating him physically, but in a way he was cheating the trust Lucas had in him.
From his spoiled brat perspective, Nate didn't see that Lucas needed something more, not only sex and fun, but also the comfort and the reassurance of a family, the certainty that he has someone to come home to. I like the story, maybe it has a bit too much of Christmas feeling in it better Hanukkah , with a final scene that could be well into an Hollywood movie with James Stewart, but then, if every Christmas we sees that movies, there will be a reason, will not?
Dec 27, Sadonna rated it really liked it Shelves: In this sequel to Eight Nights, we find out that the course of true lover never does run smoothly. Lucas and Nate are living together in New York after having been apart for the summer while Nate has traveled in Europe with his family. They have their own apartment and are at NYU - Nate having changed to study photography from his pre-law studies and Lucas still undecided about what he wants to do with his life.
Then Lucas makes a mistake. He is definitely insecure and really vulnerable and that In this sequel to Eight Nights, we find out that the course of true lover never does run smoothly. He is definitely insecure and really vulnerable and that leads to his downfall. Nate leaves and Lucas is all alone. He has only made one friend - who frankly is just waiting to put the moves on him - and he has no idea what to do with himself. I felt really sad when Lucas and Nate were apart - they obviously loved each other, but some things can't just be swept under the rug.
Also being young guys and in their first real relationship, they didn't seem to know how to talk about things very well - which is pretty typical. I'm not going to say anything else about the story because it's impossible to not get spoilery. One of the things I really liked about the story was the sort of love affair with NY that Lucas seems to be having. I thought that really added to the story.
I also really liked Lucas and Nate again in this story. I cannot imagine that Lucas is not an absolute mess being so alone in the world. I also liked cousin Rachel and Mr. Kramer a lot in this one! If you don't mind a bit of angst, this is a satisfying read. May 18, mw rated it really liked it Shelves: Although they have a pretty good relationship, Lucas' insecurities and feelings of unworthiness push him to make a devastating mistake. He struggles to gain forgiveness from Nate, but the stubborn photographer will not give it easily.
I liked this story for the most part. There was a good amount of romance and angst, but neither went overboard.
The one issue I did 3. The one issue I did have was the high number of sex scenes. Normally these scenes don't bother me obviously , but it seemed like I couldn't go two pages without Lucas and Nate engaging in some sort of sexual act view spoiler [with each other or someone else hide spoiler ]. They became repetitive after a while and I found myself skimming over them.
Even though it was Lucas' actions that caused the fallout between the two men, I couldn't help but feel bad for him. His insecurities, which I believe Nate fed into a bit, and feelings of abandonment really got the best of him. Occasionally I found Nate really unlikeable, but since the story is mostly from Lucas' POV, that's bound to happen even though I think Nate's unlikeability was a mixture of Lucas' bias and Nate just being hard-headed and silly.
Dec 23, Donna rated it really liked it Shelves: OH, I messed up It had its ups and downs, but overall it gave me the details and ending that I needed!

Andrews writes and look forward to many more fine stories from her in the future!!! Dec 20, Anita rated it it was amazing Shelves: Absolutely awesome finish to Eight Nights. Andrews is fast becoming an auto buy for me. This book had it all - stong writing, great sexy times, wonderfully told tale that continues the relationship between Nate and Lucas. While I could not believe what Lucas did and yelled at my Kindle, noooooo!
He's young, inexperienced sexually, never had a relationship, never really had friends. He had to find himself. And the touch of kink! Whoa, what a nice touch tha Absolutely awesome finish to Eight Nights. Whoa, what a nice touch that came out of nowhere. The coming out to the family deftly done. The touch of faith. I just wept because this was so good. Mar 15, Molli B. Good deal of angst in this, and I was pretty bummed during parts of it, but I thoroughly enjoyed it, sadness and all. I found the issues the guys faced to be pretty realistic for a couple of college kids.
Were some of Lucas's actions frustrating? But I think they easily could have happened, and that's the kind of frustrating I'm happy to deal with. And while some of the stuff that happened pained me, I think it was good, too, because it gave Lucas a bit of a broader range of expe 4.
And while some of the stuff that happened pained me, I think it was good, too, because it gave Lucas a bit of a broader range of experience. Very happy I stumbled on this today. Good Sunday read, even with the emotional hangover. Dec 19, Theodora IK rated it really liked it. I hadn't read the first book, but I found no difficulty following the plot. It's quite an enjoyable story, but there was a little too much sex for me. It's understandable, these guys were in their early twenties, and this was the first time they lived together, so high libido is not out of question.
It's just totally a matter of taste for me.
Actually, I forgave a lot of these two characters stupidity because of their age in the story. At that age, you make a lot of mistakes and learn from them.
Jan 20, Maggie Simms rated it really liked it Shelves: I enjoyed this book more than I thought I would. At the beginning I thought this was going to be just another cookie cutter romance story but I was pleasantly surprised. Though it was a heavy subject, it was a light read. I liked that the author gave 'the incident' proper time and development to heal and mend.
I feel that a lot of times writers resolve similar issues too quickly without proper development to be credible or for the readers to forgive. Just because the character forgives easily do I enjoyed this book more than I thought I would.
