(The Sunshine Series Book #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.

This is the second book in the Sunshine series. I LOVED the first book, and I was really nervous about where this was going to go. I should have been! In this installment, Sophie and her friends are living their dream in New York, playing music and getting paid for it. Sophie and Myles are officially together, and life seems to be going well. However, tragedy strikes and she is plunged into danger. Will she be strong enough to survive? Can she and Myles make it through together. Ok, ok, ok…this book has a cliffhanger. I believe I yelled something along of the lines of “Oh no she didn’t!!!!!” when I got to then end. ARGH!!!! Ok, no that I got that off my chest… This book was just as good as the first in my opinion, but it felt a lot more angsty to me. We get to know other characters, like Evan, much better and I liked that. But the give and take between Sophie and Myles in really tense in this book. They both are keeping secrets from one another. That I did not like, because in so many ways they are perfect for one another, fit seamlessly into what appears to be each other’s very different worlds. They have to be together, they just HAVE to!!!! (as you can tell, I am not involved in a nearly unhealthy capacity with these characters) This book really made me cry too. Like, ugly, I think I scared the dog kind of cry. I don’t want to ruin anything by giving away too much, but man on man…it was sad. But I loved every freaking minute of it. The creativity of this series is one of the things I most admire about it. The world building and plot are done so well, it immerses the reader. I cannot wait to read book 3, and I have a feeling that these characters in this story are some that will be hard to forget, so I may have visit them frequently. 4.5 stars.

This book was much more action packed than the last. With Michael set on destroying Sophie and her getting used to her new life in New York, there is never a dull moment. With some shocking twists that had me in tears, this book was well written with a vey thought out and well executed plot. The only thing I really didn't like about this book was that it reminded me a bit of the twilight series. While I still enjoyed it, the vampire side was a bit too annoying at times personally. Having said that I really enjoyed it overall and I'm looking forward to reading book 3!

Overall Rating:  3.5 Rockin’ ¿¿¿¿ Sophie and Myles have developed a close relationship even though she has trust issues and he is a vampire.  Myles has arranged for Sophie’s band to live and work in New York at a club owned by a friend.  After her near death experience at the hands of an ancient vampire called Michael, this is a good change.  It will also allow Sophie the opportunity to do the thing she loves the most, play her music. Everything seems to be going great.  She has her best friends and Myles.  Myles encourages her with her music and promises to keep her safe.  But is Myles telling her everything?  Is Sophie really safe from Michael? Why does Michael want Sophie so much?  ~TSRBR Hero –Myles: 4 stars Heroine –Sophie: 3.5 stars Steam: 3 stars  Plot: 3.5 stars  Cliffhanger: Yes Would I recommend this book: Yes! This is the second book in The Sunshine Series by Ms. Rae and it continues the saga of a human/vampire relationship.  Would I read other books by this author: Yes! I really want to see what happens to Sophie and Myles! ***Received an ARC of this book from the Author in exchange for an honest review***

4 Star Some stories are made for happy endings, this isn't one of those. I still have trouble understanding Sophie, I keep thinking things would have been better is she would have just talked to Miles and let him explain. Its like the elephant in the room, you can only ignore it for so long. They are both to blame for how things turned out. As for Michael, I am still not sure why he can't be killed. Also the blood poisoning isn't explained very well. I am hoping the next book in this series will explain more about Michael, the blood poisoning, and why Michael can't be killed.

I received this book to give an honest review. I love reading books by new authors, I love to give them a try and see how their mind works within a story. Now with this story I was expecting more with Sophie the author makes it seem as though no one likes her at her school.   But I never got that vibe except from Barbie. Non of the other kids in school picked on her or called her names they just mostly kept to themselves. Now the way that Sophie and Myles relationship is it kind of drove me batty. It was like I don't want no one to know I like him, he wants people to know. I truly didn't feel like I understood why she didn't want anyone to know she liked Myles. He is the new kid the only person she would have to worry about is Barbie but it looks like she has her own problems dealing with the ex of Sophie.  Sophie poor thing my heart broke for her with the ex. How she could keep something like that for so long is beyond me, I would have nut chopped him just saying, even if I saw him walking around. Sophie is slowly becoming a strong character within the book especially with the way her mom is treating her. That is just unbelievable. Sophie has had a hard life and I give her props that she hasn't given up. Why does she not really remember her childhood? Just things she has been told?  Also the way she lived her life, it seemed to "normal". I would have thought with being allergic to the sun she would have been more worried about being out in the sun. And how long was she in the hospital after the "accident"? I felt as though it seemed to be a couple of days but if it was that bad I would have figured she would be in a lot longer.  Now we learn that Myles is a vampire cool, but for being a 400 year old vampire he doesn't seem like he is that old. I am not sure if the author wanted him to still have the mind of a young adult or what. He seems very non-confident within himself and I found that just to be weird for how "old" he is. Also why in the heck was his mom always seeming to be mad at him? I never truly got an answer out of that one.  Overall good story and this is what I would call a chick lit with a bit of paranormal within it. There are some details that could have been improved and added to it all.    I do want to read more by her. I do want to read book two and see what else can happen with Sophie and Myles, their family and friends.

This book was one heck of a read! The main character Sophie is so emotionally raw and damaged it makes my heart hurt reading through her memories and dreams. There was more than once I had to put the book down just to gather myself back together. Just when you start to think Sophie's life is getting better and everything is going to be ok all hell breaks lose in the worst possible ways. Now her world and life are completely falling apart and she's not left with many choices to fix things. Myles is definitely still keeping some big secrets and I feel like there is still a lot going on that we don't know about yet. At some points the characters were a little whiny and overly apologetic but considering the circumstances I guess it's understandable. I still absolutely love the side characters and how they add a bit of fun to brighten up the seriousness of the book. And make no mistake it really is serious and dark. My only issue is the book ended so abruptly I was left with a ton of questions and my jaw hanging open. All I can say is Well Done Nikki Rae because now I can't wait to find out what happens next! In my opinion Sun Poisoned is definitely recommended.

Sun poisoned is the second book in the Sunshine series. Like the first one, I really enjoyed reading this book. You can't help but love Sophie and get dragged into her world. She's now living in New York with her friends, and playing at a club. She's also dating Myles, whom I just love. I really love how patient he is with Sophie, never pressuring her to do anything she's not comfortable with. He is a true gentleman, even if he does have a few minor flaws. We also get more information on the supernatural world in this book. And I can't believe the ending! How can Nikki do that to us? I really can't wait for book 3, and I have no idea when that is supposed to come out. I'll just have to try and be patient. *I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review*

This book picks up near enough straight from the first one, it has the exact same effect on me as the first one did, 'I COULDNT PUT IT DOWN' :-) It was like an emotional rollercoaster, happy, sad, feeling sorry for them, all the way through this book.  I think im still in shock over what Myles done (wont go into detail, i dont want to ruin it for you all), but "how could he :-(". Here was me thinking he was perfect (well he almost was except the one slip up) but then again i understood why he done it. This book was full of secrets and lies that began unraveling which made for a great read. Sophie really went through alot of stuff in this book and i am still hoping she can have the perfect life she deserves. This book nearly brought me to tears at one point (nearly!), it was so sad, the author done great getting me to feel so many emotions through one book :-) Aaarrrgggghhhhhh at the ending :-( omg i cant wait to get my hands on the next book :-) (if and when it comes out that is :-)!!) Was sent this book for my honest review, thank you :-)

Sun Poisoned wasn't as emotional as Sunshine, which isn't a bad thing. Sophie is a survivor, and you see that in a huge way in this book. Just when you think things are looking up for poor little Sophie, she gets blind sided by life again and again. Sun Poisoned by Nikki Rae was provided to me by the author for review. The opinions are my own.

Coming into this book, I did not really know what to expect. I knew that Sophie was moving to New York to pursue her dream in music. And, that she and Myles were going to be a couple. But, I really was not anticipating the slight twists and turns that their relationship was going to take. Getting the full-time gig at Club Midnight proved to be a blessing and a curse for Sophie. She got to play music with her friends, Boo and Trei, and also got an invite to play with club favorite headliner Honus. But then, after spending a little time with club owner Evan’s girlfriend Ava, she learned some secrets that would begin to change her life, and her relationship with Myles. When Sophie spends a little time with Ava, she learns that she was attacked by Michael as well, but that she is infected with his blood. This infection causes excruciating pain, and there is no way for her to be cured, and she will eventually die. This is what Michael tried doing to Sophie at the end of Sunshine. She also learns that where she lives, the club, and many of the area establishments are “protected” areas. Places where Michael cannot go. After learning this information, and realizing this is the reason why she is where she is now, is enough to damage a lot of the trust she had in Myles. She now knows that Michael is still alive, after she was made to believe he wasn’t, she begins to worry about her safety, and the safety of her family and friends. When tragedy strikes, and Stevie, her brother Jade’s boyfriend, is killed in a car accident, she believes it is her fault. That because he couldn’t get to her, Michael got to Stevie instead. It is because of this tragedy, however, that the defenses are weakened, and an opportunity is made for Michael to get Sophie out of the “safe” zone and away from Myles. When he gets her alone he attacks her again. This time it is believed that he will be successful. Now that she is infected with his blood she has to choose between being turned in order to live, or allow the infected blood to kill her. But, she is not willing to make this decision until she gets a chance to talk to Jade one last time. I must say that Nikki did a better job on this one. There was a couple times, to me, where the story seemed to go a little off topic, like when Jack shows up. What was the significance of that? But she was able to pull it right back together. Once again the storyline was able to keep me interested, but it was not “gripping” like I feel she is capable of making it. There are a few unanswered questions, that made me feel a bit jaded when the book ended, in which I hope will be answered in a third book of the series, if there is one. We will have to wait and see.
