Midnight Tradition (Celebrities #3) – Nicole Pyland
I didn’t enjoy this one quite as much as the other Celebrity series books – but it was still an enjoyable read. I liked both main characters. Maddox is a photographer who appeared in the previous part of the series – No After You. She’s still recovering from previous break ups and ends up at Peyton & Dani’s New Years party after lots of international travel – meaning she doesn’t really want to be there.
Avery ends up at the party after being dragged along by her brother – she doesn’t know anyone there and would rather be at home, working on her app. I enjoyed Avery as a character, and I think that might be because of how her introduction as a non famous person into a series about celebrities forces you to look at the rest of the characters slightly differently.
I actually enjoyed that the majority of the book takes place over a few days. It does create a bit of an instalove feel to the romance, but I liked how the setting forced the characters to get to know each other in a different way.
My disappointment came in the way that things were kept interesting – which normally meant adding another character that wanted to date one or the other MCs. This really worked in the first instance, but felt a little contrived when it kept happening.
It was nice to return to the rest of the characters in the series and learn how their relationships have moved on, which in itself probably adds half a star. If you like Pyland you’ll enjoy this one, but if you’re new to this you should definitely start with the first part of the series – All the Love Songs.
