Review of Sunkissed
This was my first Kasie West book and for it being a quick contemporary romance, it didn’t disappoint. We follow Avery who recently has been dealing with a lot of heartache in every form. She’s lost her best friend and her boyfriend in one go. Kasie turns Avery’s moment of loss into a moment of realization, she needs to live her life to the fullest. From there, Avery makes a list with her new friend Brooks of all the things she needs to do before the summer is over. I feel like this is a common trope for the “type A” girl but it never gets old to me and was one of my favorite aspects of the book.
I loved Avery and Brooks’ relationship, they start as “frenemies” then “friends” and then finally more. This is a book I’d love to see become a tv show for their dynamic alone. Avery and Brooks help each other grow and face their fears together.
This wasn’t the “best” romance book I’ve ever read, but I’m very happy I read it. The characters weren’t flat, they all had a story and depth which I appreciate, especially in a romance. Also the side characters are amazing.
3.75/5 stars, a perfect travel read
