Bright Midnight by Karina Halle is now live!!! + My Review


A second-chance to heal their hearts

Bright Midnight by Karina Halle is now live!


From the New York Times bestselling author of Where Sea Meets Sky and Racing the Sun comes a wildly romantic novel about a young American abroad in Norway who runs into the man who broke her heart eight years ago.

After years of bartending her way across Europe, Shay Lavji has seen almost everything the continent has to offer, but there’s one country she hasn’t crossed off her bucket list yet: Norway. It’s not that she doesn’t want to visit the land of the midnight sun–far from it; she’s obsessed with the culture and is dying to see the majestic fjords for herself.

What she’s not dying to do is run into her Norwegian ex-boyfriend, Anders Johansen, who broke her heart in America eight years ago before returning to his ancestral home. The last time she saw Anders, he was a cocky, rebellious, and tortured teenager who couldn’t stop himself from pushing all of her buttons–both good and bad. But Shay isn’t going to let Anders stand in the way of her wanderlust, and besides, it’s a big country, right?

She doesn’t count on Anders seeking her out the moment he learns she’s on his home turf. When Shay sees him again, she’s shocked at his transformation into a bearded, tattooed farmer and fisherman who values family over everything else. Is it possible that time has tamed this former bad boy? Shay wants to believe that everything can be new and bright again under the summer sun, but she knows, when it comes to Anders, the darkness is never too far behind.

A beautiful love story! This author has a way of spearing my heart with a story full of emotion. A second chance for Shay and Anders but will they overcome their heartbreaks of the past? There are a couple of events in this book that I’m sure will be showstoppers for some readers but for me it’s a testament to the realism of these characters. People make terrible and life changing decisions and the ones Shay and Anders made when they’re teens a two of the most heartbreaking kind. Years later they can’t forget their first love for each other and it’s utterly stunning when they find their way back. And how doesn’t need to Nordic sex god in their life? And especially their bed! Hotness when they get there! Anders is a sexy beast as well as a tortured hero. Living a life he doesn’t want and can’t get out of. I loved him broody, moody and all. And I loved that Shay took the chance to find him again. Shout out to the magnificent backdrop of rural Norway. It made want to visit in the worst way. For all the flaws of these two lovers I felt them. It turned a little angsty for me toward the end. The drama was well placed and moved the story forward but maybe a little predictable. Anders family was just fabulous. I hope we get stories about his sisters. A burlesque dancer in Paris would make a fantastic story. Another outstanding romance from this talented author. Loved it!
