Book Review: Sunkissed by Kasie West

Will the stars align?

Avery has always used music as an escape. But after her best friend betrays her, even her perfectly curated playlists can’t help her forget what happened. To make matters worse, her parents have dragged her and her social-media-obsessed sister to a remote family camp for two months of “fun.” Just when Avery is ready to give up on the summer altogether, she meets Brooks—mysterious, frustratingly charming Brooks—who just happens to be on staff—which means he’s off-limits.

What starts as a disaster turns into . . . something else. As the outside world falls away, Avery embarks on a journey of self-discovery. And when Brooks offers her the chance of a lifetime, she must figure out how far is she willing to go to find out what she wants and who she wants to be.

Fan favorite Kasie West is back with another unforgettable summer romance that reminds us falling in love is full of wonder, heartache, and—most of all—surprises.

Disclaimer: I received a copy of this book in exchange of an honest review. No payments made between me and the publisher.

Kasie West is one of the authors who’s books I’ve read a lot. In fact, when I see a Kasie West book, I’d add that to my to-be-read (TBR) list right a way and buy her book, or request it to NetGalley. I’m so thankful that I’ve been granted this book (e-book) via NetGalley. I love how Kasie West writes, it’s always been an easy read, fun and lovely book. Once again, this book proved that how she creates stories never fail.

Sunkissed is a good book where you can actually feel the summer vibes. I’ve never been to a “camp” but, this book gave me a good view on what it actually looks (or at least a glimpse of what a camp looks). The characters are all lovely and funny at the same time. I love the charm between Avery and Brooks. Both characters are trying to discover their selves, escaping reality being with each other’s comfort. Avery made this trip to escape her best friend, they had a complicated relationship because of one guy. Brooks, is an employee at the camp who is also a breadwinner of the family. He works hard to achieve his dreams at the same time, to make his family proud. Avery’s parents is a good one who supports their kids a lot (some kids are not that appreciative to this kind of parents). And Avery’s sister is a social media obsessed kid. She records everything and especially this camp trip which she’s been looking forward to (but then, no internet. LOL). She decided to record Brooks band and cover the day to day activity up until their big break. To be honest, I like this kid a lot. She helped her sister in ways that big sisters can’t do.

As I’ve said earlier, the book is amazing and it’s fun to read. It is a fast read too. It’ll be fun to have a second book for this since I’m already invested on Brooks’ band, I’d love to know what comes next. LOL. I’m looking forward to more Kasie West book! I’d love to collect all of her books (someday though, someday)
