Sun Damage Synopsis:
Life wasn’t what Sophie was expecting, so why should death be any different? 
She’s come back from swimming between the two, and every problem she left is still there. And then some.
There’s the human world, where she has a brother on the verge of ruins, band mates all set to go on tour, and people she thought she wouldn’t be seeing for a long time showing up.
Then there’s her new world, where she’s seeing and hearing things that should not be heard or seen. Where Myles knows more about her than she could have ever guessed. She still doesn’t know exactly why Michael is tormenting her, but somehow, everything is connected.
The monsters are closing in on all sides and the question is, will Sophie be able to defeat them before it all ends?
Sun Damage which is the third book in the Sun Shine series was a gorgeously written read. Hands down one of the best books, I’ve read so far this year!  The beautiful dark & brooding atmosphere played as much a role as the story that filled the pages…
Sun Damage takes place after Sophie had been bitten (by Myles) to save her life in the previous book. Book three walks the reader through her transformation and experiences when becoming a new vampire…plus it details how Sophie and Myles handles the danger which still exist and threatens to pull them apart.
The two main characters had shown their affection and love in the previous two books, having grown realistically from attraction and friendship, to a flowering romance…to a deeper commitment. But here in book three, there relationship has grown to so much more…just an intimate, devotion that at times as a reader, I felt as if I was intruding on the two in certain scenes…,lol not simply the physical intimacy but simply the times when Myles had to care for Sophie, guide her and teach her…the moments when she fed (because his blood was the only she could tolerate physically..)
Nikki Rae pulled out such emotions from me as a reader, that I had not had in awhile. I truly “felt” these characters pain and agony…but their strength in not giving up and their unfailing hope that somehow they would survive together…
Myles…oh my goodness…he truly put my emotions through a wringer…he combined the romantic love with that of a creator…so his loved seemed transcendent when it came to Sophie…he was so weakened, but his only concern was her…the times when it appeared all hope was lost…he simply repeated at various interval…(In speaking of Sophie dying)..that he won’t allow it to happen.
One of my favorite lines when Evan spoke with Sophie in the club and said “Do you feel your maker in your bones and your blood? Do you feel his pain over your own?”

That was what Myles did from the start, no matter the personal cost, his desire was to Sophie, who did realize this eventually.

The ending was bittersweet for me…part victory, part will these kids ever have a chance?

I enjoyed the series greatly, I can truly tell the growth from book one to book three…where the author seemed to truly have grown to know these characters, and expressed her own love for these characters.

The writing flowed, almost poetic. There was action, suspense and passion. It will take the reader through an emotional wringer, be warned:)

I am sad to see the series go, but a very well written series ender!

I recommend to any who enjoys Vampires, Romance and Suspense:)
