Blog Tour: Sun Damaged by Nikki Rae + GIVEAWAY

Hey Everyone,

I am thrilled to be apart of the Sun Damaged tour for Nikki Rae. This is the third and final book in the SUN SHINE SERIES. We had been lucky enough to host NIkki Rae in one of our FFBC events! I really enjoyed the first two books of this series, so when Nikki contacted me asking me if I wanted to read and review Sun Damage, it was a definite HELL YA for me!

Life wasn't what Sophie was expecting, so why should death be any different? 
She’s come back from swimming between the two, and every problem she left is still there. And then some.
There’s the human world, where she has a brother on the verge of ruins, band mates all set to go on tour, and people she thought she wouldn't be seeing for a long time showing up.
Then there’s her new world, where she’s seeing and hearing things that should not be heard or seen. Where Myles knows more about her than she could have ever guessed. She still doesn't know exactly why Michael is tormenting her, but somehow, everything is connected.
The monsters are closing in on all sides and the question is, will Sophie be able to defeat them before it all ends?

My Review: 

Vampire books used to be my favorite think of Paranormal books. But after a while, I refused to pick one up. My readers know I am always looking for originality and after a while all Vampire books had just lost that spark for me. But last year Nikki Rae contacted me asking me if I wanted review copies of her books. It had been a while since I had attempted anything Vampire related so I decided to give it a try. And I absolutely love it!

Book 2 ended on a huge cliff hanger that had me gasping on a red-eye flight from LA to New York. After events that I won't go into because you have to read the first 2 books in the series, Sophie our main character is finally being turned into a Vampire by her boyfriend Myles. But for reasons unknown to Sophie, her transformation is very different than most turns. Her heart still beats, her lungs still breath in Oxygen and she does not have a desire for blood. When forced to drink blood she body can not tolerate it and immediately expels it out.

If handling her new transformation and the death of her brother's boyfriend was not enough. Her boyfriend Myles reveals some big news to her that tears whatever resemblance of sanity she had left to a thousand pieces. She is stuck between a rock and hard spot, because she does not want him around due to the immense sense of betrayal, but at the same as her maker, she needs him in order to figure out how to survive as a vampire. There are still dangers ahead of them, with Michael a vampire who is hunting for Sophie still wanting her dead. All of this combined to make an excellent conclusion to the series.

This book took me a little longer than usual to finish. Not because the book was not enjoyable and action filled, but because the first three quarters of the book was filled with so much angst and heart ache. Just when you thought Sophie had some control over her life and her emotions, something else happened to maker her plummet even further down. And Nikki Rae is such a descriptive and detailed writer that you as the reader fell down this hole with Sophie. So after a few chapters I needed something light and happy filled with newborn and babies and bunnies to handle it all. But because the story was so interesting and kept me wanting more, I gathered up all all my happy thoughts and dove back in. And I am glad I did, because the ending was just beautiful and everything I could have asked for to conclude this story. Thank you to Nikki Rae for an amazing series!
