Carnival Nights gives the reader some insight on the time in between Carnival and Amusement. Charlie and Blue are on the run and working another carnival circuit. Life on the road is not easy for Charlie and Blue, but they have each other. And all you need is love, right?
“He’s my world. And I’m his.”
Ah, young love (sigh).
It’s Charlie’s nineteenth birthday and Blue has a big surprise planned for her. He is feeling really guilty for dragging Charlie into his world and wants to try and cheer her up a bit. They end up at a rave, hook up with some drugs and are having the most awesome night ever. Hey, they deserve it right?
It must be mentioned - the sex scene at the rave….yeah….totally HOT! I had to reread that part several times, because it was just that good.
“It’s here in the aftermath of a good f*** that I feel the
safest. Safe from the world and safe from our past. It’s here that I’m
reminded that I’ve got her and she’s got me. And the hot sex is just
an added f***ing bonus.”
The night does not go as planned and things go further down the path to hell the next day. The words ‘You’re fired’ are never a good thing to hear upon waking up seven hours late for work.
“S*** just went south real f***ing quick.”
Yeah, drugs will do that do you…just sayin'. Blue made a very unwise financial decision that night and with their current employment status, well, life is not looking real rosy for the two lovebirds.
“It’s beyond crazy how alive drugs can make one feel. They lit up my world and took me to places I didn’t even know existed. Took me to places that made me see the beauty in everything. I went down the rabbit hole and it changed my life. At first, it was for the better. But like a game of dominoes, everything fell apart, piece after piece.”
Life is spiraling out of control once again for Blue and Charlie. As one life is hanging by a thread, major decisions must be made. But will they be the right ones?
“Deja-f***ing-vu. We’ve been here before, back when we were forced to leave Lakeview. At that moment, I knew that was the right choice, but I never had a real hand in deciding our fate. My heart wouldn’t allow that. This time, I’m in the driver’s seat and from here on out, something’s gotta change.”
And that folks is where Ms. Nelson leaves us – hanging once again. So many questions are racing through my mind and I must wait. Again. But I know that this ‘wait in line’ will be well worth the ride because that is how talented Ms. Nelson is. She is able to grab hold of your attention with her words and keep you enthralled until the very last page is read. Blue and Charlie’s world is a wild, rocky and turbulent one, and I can’t wait to see where Ms. Nelson takes them in this series. Whatever direction it takes, I know it’s gonna be good and I will be there hanging on to each and every word.
“I don’t know where we’re going or what we’re going to do, so I
guess I’ll just drive until I can’t drive anymore.
But that’s a difficult chore when you’re unable to see the road
And I’m not talking about the rocks. I can see them just fine. It’s
Did I get that? No.
I normally don't find a problem with characters using drugs or dealing. But apparently it's the plot for this book. Seriously it was like every page of every chapter. I seriously wanted to slam my head again the wall. Drugs, Drugs and more Drugs
I was close to give this book two stars, because it was just an okay book. When I was reading it felt like it took forever to finish. I skimmed through some parts not caring for the drug scenes and trust me their was lots of them, but the writing was beautiful, that's what gave it three stars. We also get more of Blue's POV aswell which was interesting to say the less.
But overall this book wasn't for me.
As some of you guys may remember, a few months ago I has the great pleasure of reviewing Carnival for our author, KB Nelson. I was a little hesitant to start that read, but I was (am still am) on a huge carnival/circus kick. I remember that I stayed up all night one night and read Carnival from cover to cover. I had no idea what I was getting into, so I definitely did not expect for it to become one of my favorite reads of 2014!
Since connecting with KB Nelson and reviewing Carnival, I have had the awesome opportunity to work closely with KB Nelson through her development of this series. A few months ago she approached her “Carnies” with the notion of writing a novella to bridge the gap between books one and two. I was totally on board for the idea. So… here we are just a few short months later and Nelson has already supplied us with an amazing novella to chronicle another short adventure in the story of Charlie and Blue!
Carnival Nights picks up shortly after our huge ending in Carnival. Our story feature Blue and Charlie settling down into life in the Carnival, while dealing with Charlie’s emotional distress from her sudden life change. This story is a short one. Roughly 70 pages. You guys will fly through this one.
For such a short read, there really isn’t too much I can say without spoiling it, but if you were a fan of Carnival, I think you will be pleasantly surprised by the little story that KB Nelson has given us! It’s full of some amazing character development and some great emotions. It was a quick, refreshing read for me! KB Nelson has an amazing writing voice that really weaves a great story. You’re never left unsatisfied when she is at the helm!
I’m so conflicted with what I can say about Carnival Nights because it’s SO short that I don’t want to spoil anything. I’ll just tell you that I had over 20 highlighted passages from some amazing lines of dialogue and thoughts from our two main characters. Seriously guys, one of the best novellas I have read. I can’t really say with absolute certainty, but I am fairly positive that if you want to keep up with the series, you are going to want to read this novella.
All-in-all, I am granting Carnival Nights by KB Nelson a well-deserved 5 star review! I don’t know about you guys, but I am PUMPED to read the next book in the series!
