Synopsis: (The Sunshine Series #2)
Sophie’s life has changed. She’s moved to New York, she’s playing music for new people, and she’s making new friends. Then there’s Myles, and the fact that he is now her boyfriend—and everyone knows it. There are a lot of new things to take in, but Sophie has no problem adjusting.

She’s not exactly normal, living in a half-human, half-vampire world, but she’s finally, truly happy. But some parts of Sophie and Myles’ old life still hide in the dark, waiting for the right opportunity to strike.

Sophie’s having nightmares again, but they aren’t about her; Myles is hiding something that she’s not sure she wants to know.

And one lie will change everything.

No matter how hard she tries to cover up the marks her monsters have left behind, they never truly go away, and Myles’ monsters are no different.

Once again, Sophie’s caught between life and death, but this time, only she can save herself.

Bookish Things: 299 pages. The cover is beautiful and fits in well with the others in the series. This is book 2 of the Sunshine Series.

Where to buy: Smashwords for $2.99 or Amazon on kindle for $1.62 or paperback for $9.83

My Review: 

Sun poisoned, book two in Nikki Rae’s Sunshine series takes us along with Sophie on her new trials and tribulations in New York.

Moving away from her family with her two besties and band mates to play at Midnight club seems like a dream come true for an 18-19year old.

There appeared to be a bit of that in the beginning. Sophie got to experience the rush of the crowd and having fans.

Things have a tendency to go off track though. And off track they go for Sophie.

She still has a serious puking issue in this book. I doubt I’ve read about a character who has purged their guts as much as she in all my reading. I think she has a problem.

The storyline was flat, the characterisation garnered in book one was flushed away in exchange for some G rated quasi-sexual petting.

The side characters were thrust in and out of the story as a major crutch. Mainly to progress the story or uncover plot points.

The one scene that should have completely gutted me fell so far short because of the shift from characterisation. It was so sad that I felt nothing in that scene. So sad I couldn’t cry along with Sophie.

This book leaves us in the middle of a very important part of the story. But strangely it has the opposite effect than the desired. I have no incling to get book three. None at all.

This is sad.

A few things I noticed:

4% – HeHeee (He) points at me…
5% – …so amazing,” Jade asks (how can he ask when he didn’t ask a question?)
13% – marker on a page by itself – check formatting of chapter names. They appear on a page by themselves.
Check formatting on speech marks, including spacing and placement.

**Note: I was provided an electronic copy of this book in return for an honest review**
