Sorry for the spoiler but if Rae pulled that stunt in the UK. She'd be done for unlawful killing I'm sure. What she did is illegal here! This story is a mirror image of so many others. Unoriginal, boring and repetitive! I hate leaving a bad review and honestly this is my first. Shame really 😳

This is a story that much like its title will fill you with more than a little ray of sunshine.
College is the perfect place to hide in plain sight, the place to try and keep your demons at arms-length, the place that the world will forget you exist.
Rae is that girl, the one that is hiding from her past, trying to get on with life, to make the most out of what she has and who she is. But her past may never be completely behind her, she may never be able to completely shake it off but that doesn’t mean that she isn’t going to try.
Staying under the radar is Rae’s primary objective and she embodies the out of sight out of mind scenario, she deliberately keeps other students at a distance but a chance encounter brings that sullen lifestyle to a screaming halt.
Cade is everything that Rae isn’t, he is the cool guy on campus, the guy that everyone wants to be friends with, in other words he is everything Rae isn’t. But is he all that he seems or can looks be deceiving?
Paying little reverence to her reluctance, Cade is completely resolute in his pursuit of this reclusive girl.
I was enthralled by Cade, he was such as strong character, someone that I could take to.His easy charm and wit were engaging and perceptive. He quickly understood that underneath her cautious exterior was a woman that he needed to know, someone that was going to be important to him.
But careful not to scare her off, he was the picture of patience and understanding. He slowly chipped away at the walls she had carefully erected around her and made sure she could see that she was more than the sum of her past, that the events that had happened, did not need to undermine who she was now and who she would and could be in the future.

Rae of Sunshine is a standalone novel by Micalea Smeltzer, I like this author and I’ve read quite a few of her books in the past. I was lucky enough to be gifted an ARC a while ago to read for Gemma Reads Too Much. Unfortunately the tour for this book was cancelled and I pushed back reading the book until now.

Anyone who has read any of Micalea’s books will know that she writes lovely guys, I mean really Trace (swoon). So it wasn’t surprising to find that Cade is an absolute darling, he’s respectful and protective but still cocky and cheeky.

Rae is a darker character she obviously has some issues but behind the morose, sad facade is a sweet girl just trying to get on with her life. I like that she is not the classic perky sorority girl, she really gives Cade a run for his money and doesn’t let him just jump straight into her pants.

Rae seems like a very young 18, yes she may have had some had life experiences but she still exudes an innocence and naivety that’s almost childlike. I loved that Cade stepped up to be her protector because I feel like if any girl needed to be sheltered and loved it’s Rae.

Rae and Cade together are a great big ball of romance; I mean its cheese at its best with this love story playing out in the most adorable way.

This story has an edge of darkness but it doesn’t overshadow the romance, in fact this story exudes happily ever after because really there was never any doubt.

This book is a standalone but to be honest I could totally see this book expanding into a series Xander and Thea and Jace and Nova all have stories to tell and I would totally read them.

My only issue with this book is that there are some questions that I needed answering...

Another great book by Micalea Smeltzer. A brilliant romantic novel with a bit of heart break and a lot of love! The reason for the four stars is that there was quite a bit of mistakes in the book. also I was under the impression at the start of the book that Cade actually didn't go to uni but was there as guest for the coach yet later on the book it stated he was a senior, confused.com!

Really good book. Lovely, sweet romance. I would have loved to see the side characters have their own stories as I loved both Thea and Nova, it would have been good to learn more about Nova's backstory and to see both of these ladies get their own happily ever afters.

The story flowed well and the reveal of what happened to Rae before the start of the book to make her the way she is doesn't take the whole book to be found out which I can find frustrating in other books. I liked the characters, they were easy to befriend and I liked the supporting characters to the point where I would have liked to hear about their stories a bit more.

Doesn't get a 5* as there were a few places where words were missed or the sentences didn't make sense using past and present tense at the same time, better editing would have made all the difference.
