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.

I received Sun Poisoned from the author in return for an honest review. Sun Poisoned is the second book in the Sunshine series. The book starts not long after the first one has ended with Sophie living in New York with her two best friends and fellow bandmates Boo and Trei. After everything that’s happened she still can’t believe she’s living her dream. She has her own apartment even a job plus her band gets to prefer at Evan’s club in Chinatown and then there is Myles who is her boyfriend.

Sophie should be happy everything is finally going her way. However the past doesn't want to stay dead, she’s still having nightmares some hers and some not. She’s also still adjusting to being a part of the vampire world, but she’s doing ok with it. Until the past starts to catch up with her in the form of her ex-boyfriend, then Michael makes an appearance revealing that he hasn't died and he’s still out their hunting her. Sophie is caught in a deadly cat and mouse game will they be able to save her before it’s too late?

Oh how I love Sophie she’s such an inspiring character, even at her lowest she still manages to fight back to the top even if it’s short lived. I love how she has to deal with real life issues it makes her feel like she’s a real girl who happens to have a little paranormal mixed into her story. I think Myles is still wonderful for her, he may have fangs but he’s not sparkle which I love because he can go everywhere with her. They both have baggage but it’s what makes them easy to connect with as a reader plus who doesn't love a little paranormal thrown into the mix. I feel like I have really had the chance to watch Sophie grown from the first book to the end of the second, it’s been an emotional ride but well worth it.

Sun Poisoned is a fast paced story that draws the reader in Sophie’s life right from the start keeping you captivated till the very end. I found the story brilliantly written creating a beautiful story that touches on hard issues but with a unique twist. The story is full of action, suspense and intrigue never creating a dull moment. I was drawn in right from the start I was unable to put it down even taking my kindle to the dog park to read and staying up late. I love the character even the supporting character have their own charm. Sun Poisoned is one of those stories that will steal your heart, leaving you wanting more. I know I can't wait to see what happens to Sophie next. I do however think that since the story is dealing with adult issues it may be a little more New Adult then Young Adult but I think teens as well as adults will take something special away from Sophie’s life.
5 out of 5 stars
