My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Crystal Brooke just received heartbreaking news and has now found a new lease on life. She’s on an adventure to support her best friend getting married but on the search for a rendezvous, a romp in the sheets, if you will. She creates a tangled web when her new fling is someone totally unexpected. Spencer is on the prowl for the same thing Crystal is but has crushed on one of his best friends for awhile. He’s eager for Crystal to see him differently than who he has been. Will Spencer succeed in taming Crystal or will Crystal’s battle for her life run him away?
This book is heartbreaking yet fun to read. Love conquers all and this is well worth the emotional journey we take with these characters through their ride. I loved it from cover to cover.

I am just going to come out and say, I loved this novella. Sunshine Kisses by Elaine Marie is most definitely a 5 star read for me. It wasn’t quite what I anticipated at the start (whatever that even means) but I was invested by page two. It was a quick read and truly enjoyable from start to finish. This was my absolute first read by this author and I am ready to download everything by her. I loved the premise of the book when I read the synopsis and truly feel like the writing and storyline delivered. I enjoyed the characters, the flow of the story and really, like I mentioned, I loved it. Period.

I loved this story! Crystal and Spencer were great to read about. This author just knows how to grab you and take you through the story like you’re living it. This can be read as a standalone and you’ll want to have time to read this as you won’t be able to put it down once you start. Cannot wait for more from this author, going on my to watch list.

Sunshine Kisses is a fast-read romance novella. While this book is part of series, it can stand-alone with the same gripping emotional ties you would expect from any romance story. Once you start, it is difficult to put down and you will find yourself saying “Just one more chapter” over and over again. I found some transitions to seem rushed, but I also found myself reading faster and thinking about how fast life really is, especially for someone with a condition such as the main character’s, which may have been the authors intent.

This story follows a short time between two people, Crystal and Spencer, who have known each other for years, but never considered the option of more… until now. However, given Crystal’s current medical situation, she would prefer to keep her distance, despite what her losses may be in the field of love. The main question you will keep asking yourself is can love overcome fear? Read this story to find out more!

Sunshine Kisses is the 2nd novella in the Kisses series by Elaine Marie. I did not read the first (Snow Kisses) but still enjoyed this one. It can be read as a stand alone, but now I want to go back to read the prior book. This book centers around Crystal and Spencer. They are long time friends, but are about to move into something more. Crystal’s best friend’s wedding is coming up, and its a destination wedding. The perfect time for a vacation fling. Crystal just found out she has some medical problems, and wants to have fun, in case she doesn’t have much time left. She didn’t expect the fling to be with one of her friends…and isn’t sure if its the best idea. While Spencer has crushed on her for years, she never saw him as anything potential, until just days before.
This book has some heated scenes, but nothing over the top dirty. It is a cute, quick read that I recommend to anyone who enjoys romance novels with a happily ever after.

Sunshine Kisses (A Kisses Novella) is by Elaine Marie and such a great short read book. I fell in love instantly and have already added more books to my TBR list for the year. This was an emotional read as the character Crystal is dealing with a medical condition but living her life to the fullest. When she decided to have a fling, she never expected it to be Spencer. Spencer has had a crush on her for years and just wants to be seen. Will these two be able to work it out? Or will Crystal let her medical condition control their situation? I found myself on that roller-coaster where you cry, laugh or aren’t really sure what you should feel. This book was written amazing and I cannot wait to read more from this author!

This is quite the emotional rollercoaster…and I think it’s because it is a real-life situation that some find themselves in.
Crystal’s best friend is getting married…and Crystal wants to have a fling while she is at the wedding. She recently got some bad news from her doctor and she is determined to life her life to the fullest for as long as she can. One of her best friends, Spencer, ends up being just the person to fill the position of boy toy. However, what happens when the truth about her health comes out? Can Spencer accept that? Can he accept the rules they have agreed on once they return to their everyday lives? You’re going to have to read to find out.
This was a quick and easy read. I found myself relating to the characters and immersing myself in their world for a bit. While it is full of feels, it is worth every one!

Sunshine Kisses by Elaine Marie is A Kisses Novella Book Two. This book is the first book I’ve read by this author but now I need to go back and read book one since this was such a good book!

Crystal has decided it is time to live her life to the fullest after some bad news she received from her doctor. She is going to enjoy her best friends wedding. Not only is she going to have fun, she wants to enjoy a fling as well. However, she never expected who it would be. Spencer has always had a thing for Crystal and there’s no time like the present to tell her that. Will Spencer be able to make her see the light or will Crystal push him away because of her condition?

This book definitely takes your emotions for a ride but you can’t help but need to know what happens! I definitely recommend this book!

Sunshine Kisses (A Kisses Novella) by Elaine Marie

Wow I kinda knew going in that this story would probably have my emotions going all over the place, but I had no idea I’d be such a wreck while reading. This is a friends to lovers / vacation fling. Crystal’s best friend is getting married and she’s going to enjoy her time because when she gets home she will have a very difficult decision to make. Crystal has a medical condition and is keeping it a secret only because she doesn’t want to ruin the wedding. Spencer on the hot guy who is also her friend. He kinda has a secret as well,these two are hot together and the chemistry is off the charts. She lays out the rules of this vacation fling but will he follow them? What will happen when the vacation is over? What will happen once they get home? I really loved this story and can’t recommend it enough. Find out what happens next in this absolute must read. I can’t wait to read more from this Author.

Where has Elaine Marie been? I have definitely missed some goodies here as this is my first but definitely not my last read by Elaine Marie. She has a writing style that reminds me of an author I adored as a young teen and I have missed that sort of heart string pulling writing in my life. Sunshine Kisses will make you feel all the feels and give you plenty of moments to smile as well to balance the devastating story line that runs at the center of the novella. Now it is a novella so you will want to give yourself a few hours to dive in and devour this gem uninterrupted. I know that I did and I was so glad to not have had to be torn away one moment from the story of Crystal and Spencer.

Crystal has a life altering and well eventually ending illness that has made her look at life completely differently, as it would obviously do. When the latest news from her doctor is not positive she decides that the upcoming destination wedding of one of her friends is the perfect place to live life with no rules and some abandon. She wants a fling, and only a fling too, but never expected that fling to be with a best friend, Spencer. Can life really go back to normal like nothing ever happened when the wedding comes to an end? This book is a must read for the ones who want to feel the emotion as you read. I recommend you grab a box of tissues before you dive in! I am off to grab the first in this series!
