Sunset After The Storm by Michelle Sullivan is a five star read for me

Wow! This is definitely a five star read for me. What a wild ride. It had me gripped from the very first page and I did not want to put it down and even took it with me to read whilst doing housework just so I could finish it. This 'book will literally tear your heart out it's so emotional but beautiful.

This book can be enjoyed time and time again. It is amazingly intense and the author prepares you for the journey for you t

Sunset After the Storm by Michelle Sullivan a breath-taking five-star read. This is the second book by this author I have read, and the first book I adored, this one left me heart broken. Michelle Sullivan writes of love and loss and makes you feel the pain the character’s face like it’s your own.
Mason Shaw hasn’t always been the fine upstanding work-acholic he is now, he has faced struggles and pain in his life and he hasn’t always dealt with it in the most appropriate manner so when he is run

Sunset After The Storm is the third novel from Michelle Sullivan. In the words of Mason Shaw (one of the two main characters), “To say this story is your typical happily ever after would be a lie. So, I won’t even bother. To say this is a story of the strongest love that two people can have, now that is the absolute truth.”
It all begins with a chance meeting on a beach. Scottlyn Marks has just received the worst news anyone could be given. She loves the beach, she loves the sunset, so she has go

This is the second book that I have read from this author and this book is also an amazing read. This book is about true love that never ends. This is a contemporary romance. This book is a stand alone and you will not want to put it down. This couple made me laugh and they also broke my heart. This book had me addicted on the very first page. It only took me a full day to read this beautiful love story.

Mason is a good looking thirty year old man that has never found love. He had a very rough

Sunset After the Storm by Michelle Sullivan 4 Stars

I am going to make sure Mason knows every single day how much I love him and I am going to make sure that when I am gone, Mason has nothing but happy memories of our time together. That is the only gift I can possibly give him from here on out. -Scotti


This book brings out so many different emotions. Have a box of tissues ready! This book starts off with a bang and doesn't stop until the words 'the end'. From the beginning, it is clear that this

“The sunset after a storm is the most beautiful….”

Sunset After The Storm is an exceptionally good novel by Michelle Sullivan. This is definitely not a typical happily ever story, but it is a story of the strongest kind of love that two people can experience. This story begins with an unexpected encounter on the beach.
Mason Shaw was orphaned when he was a small child; he grew up with a lot of baggage and so ended up turning to alcohol as a way to cope with it all. He has struggled, but ha

Sunset after the storm by Michelle Sullivan : 5 star read
Sunset after the storm is told in a dual point of view from the characters of Scotti and Mason. This isn’t a sappy love story or insta-love that is so often portrayed in novels, this is true real and raw emotions of finding a person who makes you complete.
To say that Scotti has had a rough life would be putting it lightly. She was an unfortunate victim most of her adult life and was finally able to escape from the claws of a horrible man

“With every sunrise and sunset that I am living and breathing, I will always be your somebody.”

Sunset After the Storm by Michelle Sullivan

Michelle Sullivan’s novel Sunset After the Storm is a solid 4 star book. You go into it knowing it's not going to be a happy story. The book follows Scotti and Mason, who meet unexpectedly on a beach when Mason sees Scotti, obviously upset, and takes the time to ask her if she was okay. That meeting led to the two of them feeling an instant connection and was the beginning of a love they'd never felt before. They both have rough pasts tha

An emotional 5 star read for Sunset After The Storm by Michelle Sullivan. This is not the first book I have read by this author so I knew to have the tissues at the ready and be prepared to ball my eyes out. From the prologue, I knew this book was going to gut me, and Michelle Sullivan did not disappoint.

Did you ever need a reason to cry without being questioned? Then Sunset After the Storm is your best bet. A story of true love that has you grabbing for the box of tissues as you weep for what could have been and more importantly, what was. This is a wonderful story that shows that love is something to be grateful for no matter how long you have it. We all wish for true love and Scotti and Mason show us just how life altering it can be when found at the right time.

This is a four-star book for m

Crying from the first page can only mean one thing: I am either going to hate this book or I am going to freaking love it! By the end I’m still not sure how I feel about it. I will recommend it to everyone, especially those looking for a great heart wrenching story.

Sunset After the Storm is the third book from Michelle Sullivan. After reading the synopsis I knew I was in for a difficult read but it was extremely well written about a heart-breaking story which for many people has been and could be a reality.
The story begins with Scotti who is diagnosed with cancer. She is a complex character with a hard hitting back story which covers yet more difficult issues! All of this is portrayed dramatically but with great care and attention to detail.

Not a love story, it's a story about love and life. A full length novel. No cliffhangers, just reallife.


Scotti has never had a easy life. Nobody has loved or cared for her. She escaped a abusive husband and is living in a women's shelter. Her walks to the beach every evening to watch the sunset is her only peace. Then she gets more shattering news. All she has ever wanted was to be loved, even that is being taken away from her.

Sunset after the storm by Michelle Sullivan is an amazing book that you will lose yourself in and cry along with the characters. It is well written and the author doesn’t drag the story out. I enjoy love stories that have HEA but this isn’t one in the original sense. However, with the story what it is Scotti does have a non-traditional HEA. This is an amazing love story that has a tragic ending that will leave you in tears. Scotti has had a hard life her entire life. She had parents who were

Look the story basically comes with a warning label. It starts off saying this not a happily ever after. I feel like I should have known not to read it at work, thankfully I was smart and finished it at home. Sunset After the Storm by Michelle Sullivan was an absolute whirlwind of emotions. But it was not a bad thing.
