The booming voice of the harried Starbucks employee shakes me out of my zombie-like stupor. My body is protesting being awake this early, but I have a shift at the animal shelter in thirty minutes.
When I first came across the synopsis of Finding Sunshine I knew I had to read it. Aaron looking for a second chance and Nina looking to find herself, how could I pass that up!? Finding Sunshine did not disappoint, I found it to be a quick enjoyable read that had me grinning and swooning from the first chapter!
A playlist was included in the blog tour info provided, majority of the songs I already have on my iTunes but the others I pulled up on YouTube. I felt like this playlist the author created added to the overall book, and the songs matched the flow of the plot. Call me a romantic a guess but Nina and Aaron’s first encounter at the Starbucks was perfect! I went back and reread this part while having Falling In Love At A Coffee Shop by Landon Pigg playing in the background.
I really enjoyed Aaron’s POV. Actually I really just loved Aaron in general! He’s such a sweetheart and majority of the time while reading all I kept thinking was how much I just wanted to hug him!! Although, Nina’s POV on the other hand was difficult for me to read and connect with. It might have been the amount of times she said “golly” or “goodness”, which seriously was a lot but I just couldn’t really connect with her character as much as I wanted to. Nina and Aaron are the perfect couple and I feel like each brought something to the relationship. I really enjoyed to the build up, it wasn’t rushed and I feel like we really got to know the characters.
Overall, I found Finding Sunshine to be an enjoyable read. The romance is swoon worthy, the sex scenes are steamy, the characters have great development, and the story is well written from beginning to end. I will definitely be continuing with this series. I look forward to the next book!
