Sunshine (Sunshine Series, #1) by Nikki Rae

Sunshine (Sunshine Series, #1) by Nikki Rae
This is a New Adult paranormal romance novel (Rated R)
(Four and a half Purple Hearts)
Book Summary
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.
My Review
I always walk into a book with two things. First I believe it will be a decent book, good read. Second, I try to go in cold without reading the blurb because I think more than not, too much is given away in the summary.

So, when I opened this book, I wasn’t expected to be blown away. Yet, I couldn’t put this book down. Once I got past the cheeky names of some of the characters, I was all in.

I loved the character development in this story. This isn’t the average pretty girl waiting to be discovered by the hottest guy in school/on campus/billionaire run in. No this book takes a girl with issues and develops this story around her crazy life.

And I must admit I really thought I had this book figured out, but I have it on good authority I’m all wrong. Which is a good thing. I love surprises.

I really enjoyed this one and would recommend. Although it starts in high school,  I would consider this a New Adult book because the character is already 18 and this series will be more about her life after high school.

Pick this one up, a solid read.
