Lovely young adult first love festive romance from Keira Andrews

Eight Nights in DecemberEight Nights in December by Keira Andrews

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Loved this one from Keira Andrews which focuses on a Jewish festive celebration rather than the traditional Christian Christmas event.

I really enjoyed reading about the different traditions associated with Hanukkah, some of which I’ve come across before, others not so much.

Both Lucas and Nathaniel were sweet characters, each with their own fears and hopes and this first time love story worked totally for me.

Trevor and Gabe never knew life without the other. As only children, they grew up as close as brothers, but their love grew to something more. Something they couldn’t talk about because their parents wouldn’t understand.

Gabe is gay and unapologetic about his sexuality. He refuses to live his life in the shadows, but that doesn’t mean he isn’t harboring secrets.

Trevor is his parents’ miracle child and he doesn’t want to hurt them. Coming out, admitting he’s in love with Gabe, could ruin everything. 

Heading off to college was supposed to finally free them to be together, but nothing is as easy as it seems. Can they find a way to navigate this new world, living and loving openly?

 
Author Bio
 

Sloan Johnson is a big city girl trapped in a country girl’s life. While she longs for the hustle and bustle of New York City or Las Vegas, she hasn’t yet figured out how to sit on the deck with her morning coffee, watching the deer and wild turkeys in the fields while surrounded by concrete and glass.

When she was three, her parents received their first call from the principal asking them to pick her up from school. Apparently, if you aren’t enrolled, you can’t attend classes, even in Kindergarten. The next week, she was in preschool and started plotting her first story soon after.

Later in life, her parents needed to do something to help their socially awkward, uncoordinated child come out of her shell and figured there was no better place than a bar on Wednesday nights. It’s a good thing they did because this is where she found her love of reading and writing. Who needs socialization when you can sit alone in your bedroom with a good book?

Now, Sloan is a tattooed mom with a mohawk and two kids. She’s been kicked out of the PTA in two school districts and is no longer asked to help with fundraisers because she’s been known to lose herself with a good book and forget she has somewhere to be.

Lovely exploration of young love from Sloan Johnson

InseparableInseparable by Sloan Johnson

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is a fantastic coming of age, first love, young adult romance from Sloan Johnson with enough drama to stop it being too sweet but without any unnecessary angst.

Gabe and Trevor are fully flesh out young men, different enough to have their own unique voice but both demonstrating typical traits of being young men finding their feet at college and in a relationship.

I loved all the family dynamics in this one and the sense of college life was well done. The steady expansion of their relationship from friends to lovers was also handled realistically, although my personal preference would have been for a bit less fade to black or happening off page, so the reader would have seen even more of the love and care they took with each other.

Great setting and hopefully there’s more to come as I’d love to find out more about Seth and Jessie.
