Sunshine Series #1

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.
The author contacted me to have me review her book and so I did. I was given a synopsis of the book as it grabbed my attention. The story is a sweet paranormal!
Once I started reading this book, I realized how interesting Sophie was. She is type of gal who is quite strong with putting a front to not let anyone know how much pain she is in. I felt sorry for her of the things that she had been through and yet wanted her to get some type of happiness! She deserved some happiness as her mother seems to be evil. How could a mother act that way? What was wrong with her thinking and the way she acted towards Sophie? I really did not like her at all.
Sophie has some great friends though who kept her strong in the things she did. Sophie does not tell her friends everything because she is afraid of being rejected. Myles enter the picture as there is a connection between him and Sophie. Myles and Sophie slowly took time to connect with each other. I loved this. When they finally tell each other their secrets, it seems to give a sense of relief but at the same time they both wonder if the other still wants to be with them.
Each chapter has a line from a song or movie which was pretty neat to see. The book itself I would say it’s suited for Young Adult and New Adult! It’s a quick and sweet read with tons of emotions in it. It has a rather unique storyline and it is not like Twilight at all. I look forward to more on this author. Please give it a go.
