Samantha Chase brings us a new series…Magnolia Sound…Here is the Prequel…Sunkissed Days!!!
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.

Fly Girl’s Review:
I first got a look at this with Samantha’s newsletter over the summer. Let me tell you, this one had me excited to see the newsletter each week and I soaked in like a crazed kid. I finally get to start a series of hers from the beginning. I’m giddy like a kid at Christmas.
This series is going to be awesome if the start is anything to go by. She has created this tight knit little community of Magnolia sound with a patriarch who is all out eccentric, loved, and revered by all. He is grouchy, observant, and wise. I’m hoping he will be the voice of reason in the community as Samantha starts building relationships. He does a great job of trying to advise the first two Mallory and Jake. So suffice it to say, I loved all the characters in this one.
Mallory is a plucky young adult determined to make a play for her heartthrob no matter the obstacle. She wants to know she at least tried to make him see her. Which I loved. She is old enough to have looked at things and knows what she wants and is fearless enough to try to get it. Jake on the other hand has this manly idea that men know best and you don’t share your feelings or your fears with others. This makes him hardheaded and in my opinion an idiot. This is why I’m only giving this book 4 of 5 because their love story is hot and steamy, but he is doing everything he can to mess it up.
We leave this couple with a cliffhanger, which you would expect since it’s only a prequel. Good for us she has the next one releasing in a couple weeks. The love story is exciting and hot even though you’ll be mad at Jake in the end of this one. Just wait, Samantha always delivers on a Happily Ever After.
