ARC Review: Eight Nights in December by Keira Andrews

Orphaned Lucas figures spending the holidays with his obnoxious roommate’s family in New York City is better than staying alone on campus upstate. He ends up sharing a room again, this time with his roommate’s brother, Nate. Geeky photographer Nate isn’t at all what Lucas expects. In fact, he’s incredibly sexy—especially when he invites Lucas into his darkroom...

They hide their attraction during Hanukkah celebrations, but behind closed doors, Lucas and Nate can’t keep their hands (or mouths) off each other. Nate’s only looking for a bit of holiday fun, and amazing sex with a hot virgin definitely fits the bill. Yet as the candles burn, Nate and Lucas begin to realize eight nights will never be enough.

This gay holiday romance from Keira Andrews features secret trysts, new adult angst, spinning the dreidel, and of course a happy ending.

Dani's rating:

This is an utterly romantic, heartwarming story that revolves around the eight nights of Chanukah.

So many stories celebrate Christmas, and I'm good with that. I don't begrudge anyone their faith or traditions, but it's nice to see Chanukah included.

Keira Andrews does an admirable job showing the spirit of Chanukah: the lighting of the menorah, the delicious (and not even remotely fattening because HOLIDAYS) fried food, the family togetherness. It all felt very authentic to me as a secular Jew.

Lucas and Nate are adorable together. Lucas is a little bewildered to be welcomed into the fold, since he's just Sam's roommate. But when he meets Sam's younger brother, Nathaniel, things start to look a little brighter.

Nate isn't out to his family and is studying pre-law instead of pursuing his true passion of photography. Lucas calls Nate out on his excuses; Nate gets really defensive but apologizes quickly.

The story doesn't skimp on the sexy times, and there's even a little hurt/comfort thrown in. The epilogue is a pure, joyful HEA.

Even if you don't celebrate Chanukah, give this lovely story a try.
