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 ones that do exist are good, and it was short, so I jumped it....
...and it didn't let me go. I got sucked into these characters, into the story and just let it take me.
Normally I am not a fan of the perfect guy. It is way to unrealistic, and I get annoyed easily, but I freaking LOVE Fox! And Avery wasn't an annoying protagonist, thank goodness, she wasn't too finicky or wishy washy, she may have questioned things occasionally, but on more than one occasion she knew exactly what she wanted and went for it, and followed through with her decisions. I like that about her.
I also felt an extra attachment to the story because the relationship with Fox and Annabelle was just too sweet. I guess as a mom, and based on some of my life experiences, I could sympathize with Avery. I love when authors add a child to the story, even with single moms or being too young, because it is very realistic. Not everyone is a single, carefree twenty-something. Some of us are parents, and students, and work full time, and it is a struggle. It is nice to see that reflected.
So everything is finally moving along perfectly and smoothly and freaking beautifully, and then the epilogue MESSES YOU UP. Like, WHAT? No. Nonononono.... ugh I wanted a sequel, but not set up like that! Dang it.
Okay so yes this is a fluffy, wonderful, NA novel that deserves more attention and was the PERFECT choice for breaking up the flow of horrors and thrillers I had been reading.
So if you like NA, check it out!
Avery Kent's life changed after her high school boyfriend left her without a word to chase a thrill by fighting wild-land fires. When he unexpectedly reaches out to her after years she decides to give him another chance. Chase comes back into her life expecting to pick up where things left off. He struggles with how her life has changed since he left.
I found myself swooning, anxious and invested in what would happen next for these characters. Overall I would recommend this book and I am looking forward to reading Night Fox, the conclusion to the story. The narrator did a good job. I noticed that there was a strange echo/background noise but otherwise really enjoyed her voice. She did well separating between the characters, I didn't find myself getting lost as to who was speaking. I also liked that she used an accent since the story was set in the south.
And let me tell you. All the praise you have for this book is so, so, so deserved! This book was different from a lot of NA that I’ve read (and I’ve read a lot of NA!) and I think what made it stand out to me was Tia’s writing style. I fell in love with her writing just a couple of chapters in, so in love that before I was even finished with this book I ordered her other two books. I need more of her words in my life.
Hey Sunshine starts out with Avery getting contacted by her high school boyfriend, who up and left the day after graduation. Left Avery and all their plans together to chase forest fires. After that, Avery’s life changed in every way possible. All her plans took a detour. But four years later, Chase comes back and wants a second chance. Avery remembers being happy with Chase and she wonders if they can have that after all this time. Or if Chase can accept her life now. She doesn’t have a definite answer, but Avery is willing to try.
But the day Chase came back, he brought a friend, Fox. Fox, who is mysterious, courageous, and so incredibly sweet. Fox is a man of few words, but what few words he does have, he shares them with Avery. And with Fox working at Avery’s family diner, a friendship is formed.
Chase isn’t the guy he was in high school and Avery isn’t the same girl. When she realizes that the two of them are different people and won’t work, she breaks things off. They spent more time apart than together, anyway. Chase isn’t the guy for her.
To welcome into her family.
Now, Fox on the other hand….he’s the kind of guy every girl wants to end up with. He’s always there to help, is a family man, and boy, does he know how to please a woman. I mean, swooooon! He and Avery were the cutest together. I think I smiled every time they were on the same page together.
There was never a dull moment in Hey Sunshine. Although it was contemporary, it was nonstop with action. Not the kind of action you see in fantasies, but realistic action. It kept going and a few times I thought my heart was going to break. Especially with one certain scene at the end…I don’t know if I breathed the entire time I read it. I was too captivated and freaking out over what was happening!
I’m so glad I picked this book up! Not only did it introduce me to a new author but also a new book boyfriend. I can’t wait to continue on with this series, especially after that epilogue because OMG what was that?! I need to know all the things and what the heck happened!!!
