Reviews of Sunshine (Sunshine #1) and Sun Poisoned (Sunshine #2) by Nikki Rae

Sunshine (Sunshine, #1)
Sunshine (Sunshine #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.

Review by Gia:
I loved this book.  I didn't read the synopsis first so I wasn't sure what to expect from it.  I was hooked from the beginning.   I know that the book was going to have a paranormal elements.  Sophie has a disorder called Solar Urticaria, which essentially means she is allergic to the sun.  I immediately thought that she was a vampire. I felt bad when I read on and she says the people usually make fun of her and call her a vampire.   
Myles is a great character.   I went into reading this book without knowing much about it.  You know that Myles isn't a normal human because he does things that people can't do.  So, I was like Sophie and didn't know what Myles was until he told her. 
Sophie has a lot to deal with in this story.  She doesn't have the greatest mother but her brother Jade seems to make up for were their parents fail. 
This is a great read and the ending will leave you wanting more.

Sun Poisoned (Sunshine, #2)

Sun Poisoned (Sunshine #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.

She’s not exactly normal, living in a half-human, half-vampire world, but she’s finally, truly happy. However, some parts of Sophie and Myles’ old lives 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 as well, something Sophie isn’t 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.

Review by Gia:
This is a good read!  Sun Poisoned is the second book in the Sunshine series by Nikki Rae It can not be read as a standalone.   You must read Sunshine first.  Sun Poisoned picks up where Sunshine left off.  Sophie and her band on now in New York playing a Evan's Club. 
So, much happens in this story.  I'm not even sure what to write about it that will be spoiler free.  If you read Sunshine, then this is a must read for you. 
The ending was crazy.  It's a big cliffhanger.  I can't wait to read more of Sophie and Myles.
