Sun Damage is the third and final book in the Sunshine series by Nikki Rae. This book is a paranormal romance but really, it is so much more. It is a story about overcoming insurmountable odds, love, trust, and coming to terms with a past so full of pain and deceit and being the better, stronger person because of it.

Sophie has had such a past. Nothing comes easy for her, nothing ever really goes right, so why should her transition into vampirism be any different.

I’ve decided goodbyes are harder on readers than they will ever be for the authors. I am allowed to say this. Because we have to say goodbye to these characters for potentially ever, we can revisit them in the pages that were written, and join them on the same adventure. The author though, she/he has all the answers, all the time to revisit and join her/his characters on “one last adventure” in dreams or so be it. So let us prepare to say goodbye to Sophie and Myles, an uncommon, intriguing, cou

I am so excited to be reading the ARC of Sun Damage! I read Sunshine and Sun Poisoned, books one and two in December and was so anticipating book three! I feel all bitter sweet knowing this is the final installment... I am so sad but so happy to have had the chance to read the ARC and be part of the tour!

I am so mixed in my emotions right now and seriously had to take a moment to figure out what I wanted to convey about this book.

I love the dreary angsty vibe to the series, it's not gooey and sc

Note: I was provided a copy of this book for review.

The final book of The Sunshine Series was everything I have come to expect from Nikki Rae. The storytelling was filled with emotion, excitement, and an engagement that ensured you invested everything in the characters and story you were being told.

Sun Damage follows on from where Sun Poisoned left off to in-part quell all the anticipation Rae left us with last time. But do not expect any immediate solutions, one of my favourite things Rae does

Despite my not really liking the lead female character from the start, the storyline was enough to capture my attention and patience. Big emphasis on “patience”. On the first part of the series, I got to know Sophie, how she is different, like, she is allergic to the sun and she has secrets and she cuts herself to relieve her pain. She has an aloof character but not when it comes to her close friends and family, who constantly worries about her. With the exception of her mother who acts like a b

I knew when I first started reading this series that it was going to be great! The first book was good and each book has just gotten better.

Sun Damage where to start with this review..... my first thought after finishing was "Is there going to be another book?" I know, I know, this is the last one...but the epilogue... it killed me! I was literally talking to my Kindle in hopes that it would give me some answers. And yes, it kills me to not be able to say why, but man Nikki... you sure know how
I received Sun Damage in return for an honest review from the author for the release tour. Sun Damage is the third and final installment in the Sunshine series. Sophie has overcome a lot in the last two books but the time has come when she can’t cheat death again. Now she’s become a vampire but it’s not going to be simple. Myles has told her the truth about her past, her father and his part in her life prior to the meeting show knows about. As if learning the truth isn’t enough she also is still ...more

I would like to thank the group Never too old for N.A and Y.A books and the author Nikki Rae for allowing me to read this book for an honest review.

The book starts off from where we left on the last installment of the series, Sophie, our little messed up sunshine, turns into a vampire by the hand, I mean fangs of Miles....... There was the transformation scene on which Sophie dies and Stevie is there, here comes the tissue box and I was not far reading than chapter 4.... I don't know why but the

When I was reading the first page, the first few words, I remembered how much I loved Nikki's writing in Sunshine and Sun Poisened. The first page already got me hooked.

The story itself also kept me reading and reading. Gosh I don't know where to start. There was a lot of emotion, love, fear in this book. I don't know why someone would dislike Sun Damage the story is beautiful, so are the characters, just everything about Sun Damage is beautiful!

I loved this series from the beginning. You never know what you're going to get with Sophie and Myles and hat makes everything that much more exciting.

This is the final chapter of their story. Sophie is now a vampire but something's not right. She can't keep blood down and food is just an icky thought to her now. She's growing more and more sick and no one can figure out how to help her.
She's still hiding away from Michael. Going on tour with her two best friends should be awesome right? It's

Great book! Nikki Rae does it again! this book was awesome! I so love her imagination and the raw way she creates her world. it is so real and gripping that it draws you in and doesn't let you go.

Life wasn't what Sophie was expecting, so why should death be any different?

Secrets plague Sophie existence, they seem to be embedded into her very life. She doesn't know who to trust any more or who to turn to. Secrets are what got her killed and secrets are the foundation of her life, Myles can no lon

A lot of the details of how I feel have already been said in my reviews Sunshine and Sun Damage, but the bottom line is I REALLY RECOMMEND THIS SERIES.

The characters are so lovable and lifelike, the atmosphere is so thorough that it is completely immersive, and the romance and action are well balanced and both shine.

If you're looking for a slump-breaker or just something intense and engaging, check it out! I will definitely be keeping an eye out for Nikki Rae's future releases.

In some ways, this was the weakest book of the trilogy, and in others, the strongest. For me, the story seemed to concentrate too much on what Sophie was seeing. I didn’t think it was always necessary.

In this book, we get to delve deeper into Myles’ secrets and the story is told from two perspectives. I think that works well here.

The suspense in this one seems to kick up a notch and is deftly written. And the epilogue? Well, i’m not sure you’ll see it coming. I sure didn’t!

I had a feeling about it and I was right…Sun Damage was awesome! I liked it a lot more than Sun Poisoned and it was the perfect wrap-up to the series. Overall, I am just so impressed by these books. When Rae approached me to review them, I was hesitant. I’d never even heard of her or the books before and paranormal romance isn’t always a favorite genre of mine, but I decided to at least check the first one out when I saw how highly rated they were on Goodreads. And I have to admit, the

Sun Damage which is the third book in the Sun Shine series was a gorgeously written read. Hands down one of the best books, I’ve read so far this year! The beautiful dark & brooding atmosphere played as much a role as the story that filled the pages…
Sun Damage takes place after Sophie had been bitten (by Myles) to save her life in the previous book. Book three walks the reader through her transformation and experiences when becoming a new vampire…plus it details how Sophie and Myles handles

Such a great ending to a wonderful series <3 Review to come tomorrow on blog tour stop!

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

The third installment of the Sunshine series didn't quite live up to the other two, in my opinion, but I still thought that the series overall was amazing. I highly recommend it!!

The series follows Sophie, a teenage girl with an allergy to the sun and a whole host of psychological issues (I'll get into those more in my actual review). She spends her life avoiding peopl

Sun Damage was an okay ending to a good series. I really enjoyed the characters and especially Sophie and Miles. It was nice to actually get a perspective from Miles point of view. I definitely valued that, but there were a few plot based items that just felt overdone and unnecessary.

Sophie was damaged in a completely different way in this book, and I really did feel bad for her. I did really like how she struggled with being

Sophie has finally reached the place where she cannot trust Myles! He has not been honest with her and told her everything about Michael. Myles really loves Sophie and wants to keep her safe and not worried about the dangers around them, to Sophie this is a betrayal! Michael is not going to ever leave Sophie alone! When he traps her and once again tries to kill her only Myles can save Sophie. But Myles has lied to her and even though there is no choice but to accept

Ahhh... sigh... another Sophie & Myles epic story. Love, love, love these characters & this story. We were left with a huge cliffhanger at the end of the last novel so I couldn't wait to get my hands on this one! Loved it.

Sophie's life definitely took an even more difficult path... I can hear you saying now, "Wait? How is that possible? Girl couldn't even go in the sun before? How can it get much worse?" Ha. Well, yea. I thought that too. But this story's ending definitely wasn't a cake

**I was given a copy of this book in exchange for a fair and honest review**

WOW! Ok, so still a little shell shocked. That was an amazing ending to an incredible trilogy. I didn't want it to end.
So I really, really don't want this book to contain spoilers, I feel quite strongly about them. The trouble is, everything I want to say is in some way going to give something away and spoil what has to be read for ones self. So this is going to be a really easy yet really hard review to write.

Sophie and Myles have gone through a lot already during the first two books in this series. And every time they think that everything will be all right their lives get turned upside down again. Sophie is slowly turning in to a vampire after that everything should be okay, she and Myles can finally be together and Jade doesn’t have to lose anyone else in his lives. But everything is far from okay when Sophie wakes up. Somehow she’s different than any vampir

3.5 stars.

The book starts off where we left off in book 2, with Sophie going through the transition. But she isn't "normal" and she isn't adapting to the change at all. Lots of internalizing, lots of confusing emotions. Some answers were explained while other things were not explained (view spoiler)

I couldn’t put it down for a second. Rae presents her wildly imaginative story in a realistic light, allowing you to fully understand the possibilities behind the story. She also engages you emotionally, creating a web to catch you in. This novel definitely left me in tears at the end. The vivid descript ...more
