Sun, Sea and Summer Vibes by Zoe Allison

Sun Sea Cover

Sometimes first impressions are far from the truth…

Nina Darwish is a scientist who likes to proceed with caution and careful deliberation. When she arrives at the party destination of Ibiza to play PA for her best friend and international pop sensation Isla Starr, she has trouble adapting to the carefree and easy-going vibe on the island. The situation isn’t aided by Isla’s seemingly surly yet irritatingly attractive music producer, the world-renowned dance DJ Logan Wild, known by his real name—Cameron—to his friends. Plus, Nina’s run-ins with, and repeated rebuttal of, an extremely entitled and very annoying male singer named Zac don’t help to aid her mood.

Unbeknownst to Nina, Cameron remembers her from the past, when he was a geeky student who admired her from afar. Unfortunately, it’s clear that Nina considers him ill-natured, no doubt due to his natural awkwardness, which he masks using a stage persona. However, even if that weren’t the situation, he’s involved in a dead-end relationship with his celebrity girlfriend Ash. Plus, Nina’s eye appears to have been drawn onto Ash’s no good ex-boyfriend, Zac, therefore there’s no point in believing anything could ever happen between them.

But despite all of that being the case, for some reason, he just cannot stop thinking about her.


Loved it
Cameron is a DJ and music producer and Nina has flown to Ibiza to be a PA to her friend Isla who is working on a collaboration with Cam
I loved Cam, he was geeky and awkward but also charming and able to put on a mask when he needed to deal with social situations which he found difficult. He is brilliant at what he does and his passion for music really shone through which allowed me to see much deeper into his character which let his true and very loveable personality out and I so quickly adored him
I wasn’t so sure about Nina to start with but as I got to know her more as a character I realised that in some aspects she’s quite a lot like me! She is an analyser of everything that she does and doesn’t have the self belief that someone like Cam would be interested in her which I can totally relate to. She is strong, independent and determined but also nervous and anxious at times, especially when she is worrying about her future. She is there for Isla whenever she needs her and the strength of their friendship was a really important part of the book which I think showed how important Isla is to Nina and that it is such a key part of her as a person 
This book looked a lot a at friendships and relationships and how things can get in the way but also cause confusion and misunderstandings that could so easily cause problems. Both Nina and Cam are slightly socially challenged and this means that there are quite a few difficulties and miscommunications between them but as they start to work through them, their bond becomes stronger and they develop into the people that they can be
I loved this book right from the start, it caught my attention and made me laugh (and cringe, but in a good way) which showed how entangled I became in the story. My only problem was that I wish it was longer so I could see more of what would happen between Cam and Nina going forward. I will also be hoping that I will be able to read some of the key supporting characters stories as they are all their own people who I think deserve their own books (but that’s just me being hopeful!)
I would recommend this book to those who enjoy a romance full of emotions with a brilliant cast of characters who you will love set in a beautiful location

Author Bio 

Sun Sea Author

Growing up, Zoe Allison loved stories about falling in love. But rather than being rescued by a knight in shining armour, she imagined herself fighting dragons alongside him, battling supervillains as heroic allies, or teaming up to dive into perilous waters in order to save a loved one from drowning. Once Zoe did grow up, she became a doctor. But as time went on, she craved a creative outlet to counter the soul sapping burnout that her career inflicted upon her, and also to achieve those happy endings that were so often lacking in the real world. She wanted heroes who truly love and value women, who find their true love inspiring, are fascinated by her, want to connect with her as a soulmate and fully open themselves to her on an emotional level. And so, Zoe began to write her romances.

A Zoe Allison novel promises a heroine who is not only her hero’s equal in ability and intellect, but whose hero equals her in emotional intelligence. Her characters overcome conflict infused with spine tingling sexual tension to forge a deep connection as soul mates as well as lovers, and ultimately, they both rescue each other emotionally. Even if they might begin their journey as enemies…
