I just am horrified by the main characters. Rae is constantly on about not deserving or wanting friends but cant say no to anyone? Two attempted sexual attacks and no police reports? Every paragraph was I'm horrible I deserve to die and then the next is all happy. It dragged on so long and jumped around time implications. I truly couldn't stand this book. I wish I could give it a -5 stars.
Rae is a girl who sets off to college trying to escape the consequences of a fateful decision that she made. Her goal is to go to classes and be left alone, no friends. Well sometimes we don’t always get what we want and Rae did not get her wish of no friends. First, she collides into Cade, a star football player at school. Then she meets her new roommate Thea (Cade’s younger sister). These two are determined on getting to know Rae better (for different reasons) and bring her out of her shell. Rae was such a broken character. I felt so bad for her as she lived through the aftermath of a mistake that lead to a tragedy. Micalea does a great job portraying Rae as both the victim and the villain. Her actions had serious effects and I liked that Micalea was able to address the problem of texting and driving. The progression of Rae from the beginning of the novel to the end was fabulous. I loved how Micalea showed the transformation and growth from a broken sad girl to a beautiful loving person. This story was about her and her transformation and it was great. Now, Cade is one of the most caring and sweetest guys out there. The way he carries himself and how he treats Rae and his sister Thea is so beautiful. Just an all-around good guy. He has also suffered tragedy and is living through pain but the way he portrays himself is amazing. The supporting characters of Thea, Xander, Nova, and Jace were great. They brought some laughter into this emotional story. There was a good balance of emotional/intense scenes and laughing/happy ones.
Once again, Micalea gives readers a story that is sweet, emotional, and funny. I loved everything about this book and really enjoyed it. I just hope Micalea gives us more of these characters in the future. An amazing book that you do not want to miss.
We also have the sweet male lead who's supposedly a player. We're told this but not shown it. He has issues of his own which are not resolved in the book and are dealt with as an afterthought by both lead characters. Truthfully, this "bad thing #2" that happens to the male lead ought to have had a larger focus on it. It is an ongoing, serious event that should have had some sort of resolution or engagement.
Most characters were one-dimensional with no personality quirks or standout traits. Characters were either 'perky cheerleader', 'punk chick', 'bad guy', 'Martha Stewart mom', 'overprotective father', etc. Boring characters who wouldn't dare move out of their assigned role.
I skimmed the last 20%, unable to make myself concentrate on the ending.
I would give this between 2.5 stars if possible because there were very few mechanical grammar type issues. Plot and characterization are where this book failed.
Rae and Cade were amazing characters and I really enjoyed reading their story. It took me a little while to warm up to Rae, but once I did I really liked her. She and Cade were a perfect match and I loved the relationship and banter they had with each other. Cade was sweet, funny, considerate, and outgoing. He was the perfect compliment to Rae’s more reserved and distant personality. I would have loved to have read Rae and Cade’s story from both of their POV, but I still enjoyed reading it solely from Rae’s. Rae and Cade both dealt with difficult situations in their lives, but the way they helped each other heal and grow was wonderful and quite eye-opening and awe-inspiring. I would have loved to have seen more romance between Rae and Cade, but what they had was special, and I was very happy with the conclusion to their story. Another aspect I really liked about Rae of Sunshine were some of the secondary characters, namely Thea, Xander, Nova, and Jace. I’m definitely looking forward to reading each of their stories in the books to come in the Light in the Dark series. Micalea did an incredible job telling Rae and Cade’s story and I would highly recommend reading this book and all of her other novels!
