Eight days in the sun was an emotional read with all the feels in between.
Great characters, awesome storyline and even better words! It's all good. A definite must read
I don't actually want to rate this book 2.5 stars because it had so much potential, but it took me ages to finish it and I had issues with the pacing, so it's time to face reality.
When I started this book I was deeply, deeply excited. First of all, we get a contemporary romance with an Indian girl as the MC, which was a pleasant surprise for me because the cover is vague and the names didn't give me a hint. I can't ever recall reading a romance with a girl of Indian heritage as an MC (shameful, I know), so I was pretty excited by that fact alone.
The story also had one of my favorite themes. Ever since I was in a freak explosion accident, I've had a scar across my upper lip. For a long time it was very conspicuous and I was deeply self-conscious about it. Thanks to a great plastic surgeon, you can barely see my scar, but I now feel this intense connection to any MC that has scarring or disfigurement, especially a female MC. I actively seek these types of stories out, and though this one took me by surprise, it was a very, very pleasant surprise.
I think the author was on the right track with the story. There was a good connection at the beginning and things seemed very promising. However, everything just progressed way too quickly for my liking.
The female MC, Kiran, went from so self-conscious that she was hiding in sweatshirts at the beginning of the story to seemingly no fears after a few days with the male MC. They moved at a really fast pace, and the intimacy happened much too quickly for my liking. I like a really slow burn, and I like issues to feel like they resolve organically, not just that you can suddenly get over your insecurities after one day with a hot guy. I just didn't buy that.
I also think that the little twist happened way too coincidentally and way too early in the story. I felt like the plot was wrapping up at 35% because so much happened in such a short period of time. Then things took a turn and the plot got more complicated, but it was too insta-lovey for me already by that point. Gah, I just hate insta-love.
I think other readers might find themselves in the groove with this story, however I found myself drifting farther and farther from these characters. I kept putting the book down and struggling to find motivation to pick it back up, which is the kiss of death for me.
I don't want to discourage other readers from trying this one because there was some real good there, but between the pacing, the time jump, and the insta-love, it just wasn't exactly my bag.

This is one of those books that was completely different from what I expected. While technically I can say the book description on Goodreads and Amazon is true, it makes the story sound so much more light-hearted than it is. It still has some fun and lightness, but there is so much more to the story. A depth that was very unexpected. I loved this book!
As always, I’m going to do the best I can to not give anything away in the review. You know I hate spoilers! Just know, if anything is revealed it is completely accidental.
A little after Kiran and Mason get to know each other there are a few things that can be figured out about the trajectory of their relationship. About things that may have happened in the past and things that may happen in the future. The author does a wonderful job of building the relationship while giving us snippets of back story here and there…in other words great world building. It wasn’t long before I was in love with both characters and wanted more.
Both Mason and Kiran have some painful events in their past, but they’ve both turned out to be upstanding citizens. That seems to be a bond for them, something they see in each other that they latch onto. The romance and, more importantly, the friendship just make sense.
As their eight days are wrapping up there was just a pit in my stomach. It was brutally beautiful and had me shedding tears.
Truly there is not much I can say without giving something away you may not want to know before reading this book for yourself. Just trust me when I say you should pick it up for yourself and experience the love of Kiran and Mason for yourself. You won’t be sorry.
