*REVIEW*Sunshine(The Sunshine Series) By Nikki Rae
Sunshine(Sunshine Series Book 1)
By Nikki Rae
18 year old Sophie Jean is pretty good at acting normal. Sure, she’s not exactly happy, but happiness is nothing compared to being like everyone else. She can pretend she’s not allergic to the sun. She can hide what her ex-boyfriend did to her. She can cover up the scars she’s made for herself. Ignore anything. Forget anything. Then Myles enters her life, and he has more than a few secrets of his own. When accident after accident keeps happening to Sophie, she can’t help noticing that he’s everywhere. That he knows too much. That she’s remembering too much.
It’s one thing covering up her own dark past, but does she really need to worry about people finding out just how much Myles likes her? Or that despite how much she doesn’t want to repeat past mistakes, she kind of likes him back? Not to mention the fact that she now has to conceal that Myles drinks blood-that he says he’s about four hundred years old.
She almost forgot about that part.
But Sophie has no plans to ruin the normal life she has created for herself. She can deal with this little glitch, no problem. Even if word has gotten around to the wrong vampire about Sophie and Myles, even if she’s putting the few people she loves at risk. Suddenly, those who were monsters before are just people, and the monsters? They’re real. Now being a normal human being is the least of her problems. Now she has to stay alive.
I was given a Copy of Sunshine for an honest review.
Sunshine tells the story of Sophie who honestly does not have the best life.Her mom is this evil mother who has no love for her.Her Ex-Boyfriend hurt her quite badly.She has a huge issue.She cannot go out into the sunlight.She is allergic to it.Myles is the new guy in school who just happens to be there for Sophie ever single time she needs help.Every time.
I was entrenched in Sunshine.Did not want to put it down.I was intrigued by Sophie.Her affliction.It made me wonder just what made her different and why she had that.My heart broke for her knowing everything that she had to deal with at such a young age.Myles is a character who I wish I had been able to get to know him better.Know his feelings.He was hard to read sometimes.
I feel the writing was good.I think there were times when the story felt a bit slow but then other times when it was perfectly paced.There was an incident in the story that had me confused but once I was able to sort it out everything was fine.It just could have been clearer.The Secondary Characters were great!I loved getting to know them.Especially Jade and Stevie.
The main goal of a book is for it grab my attention,keep me there and pull me into its world.Sunshine Succeeded in doing just that.I was glued to my kindle until it died.I admit I almost cried when it died.Yes i know that rhymed. Nikki Rae's Debut Novel Sunshine Rocks and is a great start to Her Sunshine series!Great Job Nikki!
