Sent to me by author in exchange for an honest review

I didn't read any reviews at all before starting Hey Sunshine and I didn't really know what it was about so I had no idea what to expect. However, I could have never been prepared by how much I would love this book.

The first 15 pages kind of had me unsure but holy crap, once this book got going, it was full speed ahead. I loved this book this so, so much. I put off writing a review for a whole week because I just can't say any coherent though

I really enjoyed this one and could not put it down. It was a fun quick read but I did find some parts to be too extreme, and unlikely. Still it's a step up from the NA typical love stories.

I loved Beckett Fox (his name!) every time he came up, I would swoon. His character was so mysterious and intriguing.

The epilogue is crazy and I'm wondering if i want to continue with the second book, .___.

Okay, Hey Sunshine is definitely one of my new favorites. It's such a unique and refreshing NA story. Avery's character is amazing; I love how strong, independent, and caring she is. I absolutely L O V E Fox. He's officially made his way into my top favorite male characters list! Fox and Avery's relationship is basically goals, haha. I loved how they took it slow, and didn't rush into anything. And how loving Fox was to Annabelle! *heart eyes* Chase bugged the hell out of me. I kind of wanted to ...more

So glad to have read this book! Once in a while I love to read a good NA book and this one definitely hooked me since the beginning. I love that they did not rush into anything, it was slow, but for them it was perfect, just what they needed it.

2017 Audible Review:
Even 2 years later I absolutely adore this book to pieces. This is one of my all time favorite books! I was excited to see this went on Audible. I'm not a rereader by nature though I always want to reread books.
Amanda, the narrator nailed Avery's story spot on. Though at times the audio got choppy and faded out, I don't rate based on something like that. I base it on their ability to play the character and deliver a story to the reader. And Amanda did just that! 5 stars; all

UMMM WHAT?! What kind of awful, scary ending is that?

I have been reading and reviewing a lot of horror books lately, and I wanted a change, so I knew that I needed to pick up a New Adult novel. They are always perfect when I need a change or when I am in a slump. So I scrolled through what was on my Kindle, because I was too lazy to go to my bookshelf, and decided on this. I saw it on Instagram in passing a few months ago, and I follow the author as well. There aren't many reviews on it, but the

The lovely author sent this to me in exchange for an honest review.

I would love to start this review by thanking the wonderful author for sending me her novel. Thank you so much for sending me such a great story. I loved it.

Now, to the review.

This novel is a story of love in all forms. It was so refreshing to read about a character who is just surrounded by incredible people. I honestly loved every character.. well almost every character.

Rereading this beauty before I read Night Fox tomorrow... even though I read it for the first time in August of this year. It`s just too good to pass up the chance for a rereading

After rereading;
Just as amazing the second time around. And that epilogue kills me. My body is so ready for all the feels Night Fox is sure to induce!

I am so glad to have finally had the chance to read this! I saw a friend of mine raving about it and I couldn't wait to read it. I am so glad to announce that it didn't disappoint! The plot was intriguing from the start and I fell in love from the flashback with Chase. (He was so adorable pg. 7!) This book had everything and it made me feel so many different emotions... It was

Good God this was a hidden jewel. Thank you, thank you, thank you to the bookstagram account that brought it to my attention. Foxes are my new favorite obsession because the fox in this book is ten flavors of delicious.

This is one of those books where it's better if I dont say a whole lot so I dont ruin surprises for you. I don't even want to tell you about it because I don't want you to read it, I want Fox all to myself. But really? You need to read! And I need Night Fox.. now!

This book was just perfect! I was not expecting to like it this much and it's definitely one of my favorite books this year. I was hooked from the very first page and that ending just made me want more. December is just too far away! I read this with a friend and we both really like guys like Fox. Being the way he was just made this book even better! I'll have a more elaborate review later on my blog :) ...more

DNF. Slight Rant review. Small spoilers

I tried I really did. I didn't like this book because the Heroine was such a pushover she takes her ex back after no contact for 4 years after he left her after high-school. No explanation or anything (my eyeballs are completely in the back of my head). Well there is a second love interest so I kept on pushing. I love Fox he's a gentleman a complete unicorn but still a perfect book boyfriend. So this great guy comes along and she is still trying to give ch

I can't believe that I am just discovering this series! Sometimes I feel like I've been living under a rock. I seriously have been binge reading on these two books this past week. They have kept me enthralled from the very first page up until the very last sentence. This is one of the best contemporary novels that I have read this year, and it's definitely going on my list for my favorites of 2016. Tia Giacalone I freaking adore your books!

The main character Avery Kent is a wonderful young woman

Okay, so I loved this book!! Like crazy!! It was so amazing. Every part of this book. Except Chase!! Oh lord he drove me nuts but you get past that once Fox comes into the picture! He is perfect in every way! I love him, he's definitely going down in my top guys. He was so sweet and sexy at the same time! Fox can do no wrong in my book. Avery is an amazing character. I really liked her, I found myself relating to her a lot. And Annabelle is just the sweetest!! But the ENDING??? Why??? There are ...more

I started reading (I bought it in print way before I knew I will love it) this book after TaylorReads said that this is a book she will reread this year and I just wanted to have it. And I loved it! I liked that the story , especially their relationship took time. I hate books where they just jump on each other! Fox was so nice ! I loved his family . Avery was nice, sometimes insecure, but I liked her. And Bels! She is so adorable! I don't know if I'm a fan of Chase, but I think HE DESERVES HIS ...more

HEY SUNSHINE is a niche little indie book that a few of my friends adore. Going into it, I was expecting to feel the same way, but I was tragically disappointed.

This novel delivered an interesting story and took no time in diving right in. We are swiftly carried through Avery’s early life, where she falls in love only to be left heartbroken, then becomes pregnant and gives birth to her daughter Annabelle.

Now before I get into my dislikes, I do have to mention that I believe Avery was a great mai

I discovered Tia Giacalone at a book signing. I had never read any of her work and to be honest, her book cover intrigued me. I am a sucker for a good romance novel and haven't gotten stuck in one for some time. I have been trying to fall in love with a book again and this broke me free of my romance novel slump!

I am so glad I discovered Giacalone! "Hey Sunshine" was beautifully written. The main characters were nothing short of perfect. The small plot twists and turns weren't completely unreali

A difficult one. I knew about this book maybe two years ago and I got obsessed with the cover. I really wanted to enjoy it but It wasn't as good as I wanted :c
Kind of average plot, characters, etc. If I'm honest it was really difficult for me to get it finished because I was really bored. I felt like half of this book wasn't really necessary, nothing important or relevant was happening so they were just empty and boring pages for me :c

Something that frustrated me SO HARD...... NO REALITY IN THI

"Can dimples wink? Because I felt like his just did."

I really enjoyed this book. It's was well written and an easy read. It was told in the first person POV (Avery). I got sucked into the story quickly and rooted for Fox and Avery throughout the book.

Avery is a fiercely independent single mother who has a hard time accepting help from anyone. I really liked her character, her life may have not followed the path that she expected but she didn't let that keep her down and she was determined to fo

This is the first romance novel I've ever read, so I didn't know exactly what I was getting myself into. Luckily, it was a fun, fast read packed with endearing characters, relatable issues (I mean, sort of...I'm obviously not a single mom, but you can see where she's coming from), and the sharp wit that any Clever Girl Goes Blog readers have come to expect of Tia. From the epilogue, I'm already excited for what sounds like it could be a darker follow-up. ...more

A great New Adult romance with real topics that so many people deal with. The struggle in being a young single mom and not losing sight of her dream to finish college. Learning to be self-sufficient and independent, but also realizing that it's also okay to lean on someone else for support.

I'm looking forward to reading the next book in the series "Night Fox". And supporting a fellow indie-author is awesome! Highly recommend for a quick, easy read.

This was a really great read. Annabelle as so adorable she was such a funny kid. Audrey was a very good main character. And Fox, yes please. I really loved how he called her sunshine, so sweet.

The way that epilogue left off though I'm like I need the read the sequel like now.
