It was a chance meeting for Aaron Masters in a Starbucks when he finally saw the light. An ex-con searching for redemption. Nina who is an aspiring photographer is just looking for a place to belong and a job doing what she loves. But after she meets Mr. Starbucks she can't stop thinking about him. But fate is determined for them to meet and they do at the annual valentine's day auction. They have a whirlwind romance that happens pretty quickly. But Aaron is keeping a secret and the are some who don't want them together. Will some "friends" be successful in there attempt to break them or can they overcome it all for there HEA. Find out in Finding Sunshine. I would definitely recommend this book.
Aaron was a man with a past. He had spent time in prison and although he had been out for the past four years he had never quiet moved on from the stigma of being there. He worked in a sleazy bar where he bar tended and whatever needed to be done as well as lived in a small apartment above it. More than anything he is stuck in this cycle and not able to move on.
On the other side of the coin: Aaron is good looking with utterly mesmerizing blue eyes, well educated with a degree in Business Management from BC. He’s also a stand up good guy, totally smitten with his nephew, loves his family, not to mention loves working with dogs. We all know that anyone who loves dogs is a keeper, right?
Standing in line at Starbucks one morning he hears Nina. She is like a breath of fresh air to Aaron. As they are waiting in line to pick up their coffee they start to talk. While talking someone tries to hijack Nina’s coffee. Aaron, in total Alpha mien, steps up to rescue Nina’s coffee from this stranger. Coffee rescued they part ways. This brief meeting has sparked a glimpse of light for Aaron. Will this light give him the desire to want more? How does he find that more with Nina?
Nina is a young girl who’s just finished a photography internship. She is out of work, looking for a job but until then her parents are helping her out. Now she is not only seeking employment but she is also quiet enamored with Mr. Starbucks, Aaron and just can’t get him out of her thoughts!
Since they both seem to be stuck on each other, what are the chances of them meeting again? As luck and best friends would have it very good. Imagine the surprise when Aaron found that Nina was part of the Valentine’s Day Auction? He knew the moment he saw her that he would win the date no matter the cost. Doubly cool was when Nina found out that Aaron was the winner of the date! The biggest surprise of all was finding their mutual good friends had been trying to play matchmaker with them!! It was like a match made in heaven and they were soon inseparable.
Now that Aaron had found his Sunshine what would life bring for them? Can he begin to let go of his past or would it come crashing down around him? Would Aaron and Nina find an HEA?
“Sunshine came back in my life, if only for a moment, and I saw things clearly for the first time in months.”
A random coffee shop encounter is only the beginning for fledgling photographer Nina King and part-time bartender/dog trainer Aaron Masters.
The opening scenes—their initial meeting—I felt was really well done as it pulled me into the story and the characters. Both Aaron and Nina had a lot of potential, and I was intrigued about Aaron’s criminal past. After that it seemed like their relationship was really rushed with Nina pondering changing her relationship status on Facebook and Aaron wanting to change his whole life before they even had a second date. Don’t get me wrong, Aaron needed and deserved something good in his life; it would have just added so much more to the romance if there had been more build-up so their chemistry could simmer a little. As it was, it felt like a lot of insta love and insta lust.
Their love scenes were pretty sexy and definitely frequent but their dialogue was a little mixed matched. Nina’s ‘goodness’ and ‘golly’ drove me nuts! At first it was just a little eye roll worthy but then it become annoying. She was just too sweetsy for me without the background behind it.
Overall, it was an okay read. Generally light-hearted and angst-free which I enjoy but there were places I would have liked to see a little more development, characters/plot points that I felt could have been expanded on for a little more excitement or a richer story.
