To know more, read "Just Brooke" by Author Sunshine Rodgers."  - Ms. Lefty

​​​"Just Brooke" is a story of learning to love the journey of your life. It's a life lesson on being kind​. This book is a Cinderella musical, it's like a 2000s chick flick and I loved reading it. I loved Giovanni's character the most.  All in all, this was a good read for the romance and Giovanni part, and I hope we get to read more! " - Anne from the Philippines

The writing is honest, vulnerable, and personable. It gives the reader a sense of camaraderie with those sharing their lives within its pages. The book is short and easy to read.

"I really liked this short read. I think it actually portrayed what it is like to work in an office. I loved the ending and how the dream guy wasn’t really the dream guy.

Reviews for "Just Brooke" :

 "I thought this was a cute contemporary romance. I liked how Kay grew through the story and found out what was most important to her even when it looked different from what she thought.

"I enjoyed every minute reading this book. This book will take you to a different level of reality and love. I read it twice and I lived with the characters each moment. It's like watching a movie while reading." - Rafa

"This was a good book about learning to share your light with others. I liked how she told you that you don't have to be happy and positive all the time, but you can do little things to help make other people's lives better. I thought she had some good suggestions about how to share the light of Christ. I thought the book was inspirational and encouraging." -Holly B.

 "Hard times can become the springboard of success. Brooke Evans outshines her odds. The story moves between these two layers of haves and the have-nots. This mental tussle of conviction forms the bedrock of the novel by Sunshine Rodgers. The author follows an uncommon narrative technique to put forth these conflicting emotions and experiences. Allegory and allusion are wafting across the narrative. The book is rife with symbolism that makes it so evocative and forceful."

Reviews for "Be The Sunshine" :

"This book kept me entertained. As a young boy, I liked singing but not in front of an audience. Brooke on the other hand wanted that exposure to make it in the music business. Her fears and all her insecurities along with her talent and desire were shown in every chapter. I LOVED this book from cover to cover. The ending literally made my eyes water. I saw a little bit of myself in this book." - Mike L.

"Unlike typical self-help books, "Be the Sunshine" doesn't prescribe happiness or positivity. Instead, it shares personal stories that delve into the author's life, emphasizing the importance of being true to oneself. The narrative centers on friendship, family, and faith, offering a relatable and encouraging outlook. The book's strength is its genuine storytelling that connects with readers through shared experiences. "Be the Sunshine" is a celebration of love, joy, and the beauty of living authentically. I look forward to exploring more from this author and the sincerity she brings to the literary world." -Jeannine B.

"The author does a good job of a rom-com type of book that is clean, and a light read.  It reminds us not to give up on our dreams." - Deana D.
