'Eight Nights' was the beginning of Lucas and Nate's story and I really enjoyed it. So much that upon discovering it's existence I immediately bought 'Daybreak' the follow-up story to 'Eight Nights'. Sadly while 'Eight Nights' got a happy 3.5 stars from me, 'Daybreak' is going on the 'read' shelf with a whopping 2 stars...barely.
So here's where things went wrong for me. Let's start with Nate's mom. I loved her in the first book. She was awesome. Sadly she went from awesome in book 1 to judgemental, self absorbed bitch in book 2. Swear to god aliens took over her body or something. But not to worry there was a magical Christmas cure at the end...nope sorry, not buying it.
Now on to Nate and Lucas. I think I'll start with Lucas, otherwise Nate won't make a lot of sense. Lucas turned into a freaking train wreck.(show spoiler)
Now just a quick note on Lucas's friend Casey...(show spoiler)
Last of all we have Nate. To me Nate's behaviour made no sense.(show spoiler)
Even though the ending was one big happy Hanukkah miracle. I just couldn't buy it. So for me this was pretty much a fail and while I do still love 'Eight Nights' I'm kinda' wishing I had never seen the light of day.
