REVIEW for Sunkissed Days by Samantha Chase

Published February 26th 2019

Mallory Westbrook is ready to make her move on Jake Summerford, the boy—now man—she’s been crushing on for years. Coming back to Magnolia Sound to celebrate her great-grandfather’s birthday provides the perfect opportunity to show Jake that she’s no longer a child.

The last thing Jake expected to do at his mentor’s birthday party was to find himself kissing Mallory under the moonlight. Though he’s known her for years, the thought of kissing her never crossed his mind. But the shy tomboy he once knew is gone, and in her place is a woman he can’t resist.

They have one summer before they go their separate ways. Insecurity wars with the possibility of a future together, but it could all come to an end before it even has a chance to start.

My Thoughts…

Samantha Chase is amazing.   She takes realistic characters, gives them real life and then makes the reader become invested in their lives.     This is Mallory and Jakes story.   They are both young, in their 20’s, been friends forever and are now feeling the attraction between them.     What used to be a childhood crush has developed into real feelings with the potential for broken hearts.   

I was cheering for Mallory from the very first page.   She came back to Magnolia Sound to celebrate her great grandfather’s birthday but also to show Jake that she is all grown up.   She took her life into her own hands, turn it into a life that she loved, and was showing her strength by not sitting back and waiting for Jake to notice her.  The strength, the self-esteem, and the lack of fear in going for what she wants making her someone I would like my daughters to look up to.  

This is a fun, easy, short book.   It is the start of a new series on books from Samantha Chase.
