New York Christmas - R.J. Scott I loved this story when I read it as it was posted online, so I was more than happy to find out that it had been "extensively re-written and only the ideas in it remain" and would be published in time for Christmas!Except that... it doesn't really seem like there was much of a rewrite, just that a few new scenes from Daniel's POV were added to what was there before, maybe some other scenes cleaned up a bit. That's it.Despite how much I loved it, the free online version still seemed incomplete and a bit lacking when it was taken down in preparation for publication. Chris still seemed to be feeling his way through this new relationship, still seemed to be adjusting and finding himself again after what happened with the private school, and I had hoped that the published version would show more of Chris's growth, both as an individual and has half of a relationship, but this published version doesn't really fill in those missing parts and the ending is as conveniently neat as before. It's really not much different from the online version except with a bit of bonus!Daniel-pov! parts thrown in to make it longer.So... this is all to say that, while I still like the story, I also came away feeling a bit let down.
