    One thought on “The Sun Still Rises”

    1. What a sweet story! Erik is carrying some pretty heavy baggage going in, but it never weighs the narrative down. Instead, Laura Bailo acknowledges the issues and then has her character deal with them, all with the sunny help of David. While I'm all about characters who are writers and a bit geeky and shy and sweet, and sensual love stories, the standout feature here for me was the setting. It's obvious Laura loves Pamplona and she makes her city sing. I felt as if I'd been on a holiday by the ti [...]

    2. 3.5 starsFirst of all, I thought the author -- whom I believe actually lives in Spain and have walked the streets of Pamplona -- successfully brought Pamplona alive for me as a reader. So much that I actually Googled how to get there!! Yep, if I ever be lucky enough to visit Spain in the future, I will make sure to include Pamplona on my itinerary, San Fermín festival or not. And that is what I love the most from Dreamspinner Press' World of Love series -- the ability from the authors to transp [...]

    3. This was an incredible story that resonated with me. I read it all in one sitting, and I regret nothing. Laura Bailo weaves an intriguing plot with interesting, engaging, fully-developed characters that really lead you to get invested in their story. The descriptions of locations and settings did exactly what I think the World of Love series of novellas is intended to do: it made me feel like I was there in Spain. Such a great insight into the people there. This will definitely NOT be my last bo [...]

    4. Disclaimer: I received a free copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.Oh my goodness, this was the cutest! I will admit I squealed a little already at the blurb--specifically the fact that the story is set during the San Fermín festivities in Pamplona, Spain. I've never actually been there, myself, but I've watched the running on tv almost every year since I was a child. With that, the very Spanish sandwiches (all that tuna <3 ), and of course the tortilla that the [...]

    5. This book needed to be about 20% shorter. There was a lot of behind the scenes talk that the characters could have engaged in, well, behind the scenes. That said, the characters themselves were super adorable and the setting very interesting, so 3.5 stars. (Since GRs doesn't have half stars, I'm bumping it up to 4)

    6. Erik, a young American writer grieving the death of his father & struggling with an anxiety disorder, travels to Spain to run with the bulls at the famous festival in Pamplona, a journey undertaken in honor of his late father, who had loved & attended the festival every year There he meets David, a handsome, kindhearted young man who comes to his rescue in an upsetting situation & love quickly blossoms. Very sweet, touching and innocent romance with a sort of comfortable domestic fee [...]

    7. A Scattered Thoughts and Rogue Words reviewRating: 3.5 stars out of 5For the Full review, visit wp/p220KL-ax3From that review: " For the most part, the author delivered a delightful, layered story of recovery, connection, and closure that was also a romance. That's a lot for a book that includes a sightseeing trip to Pamplona, Spain for its well-known running of the bulls. Did I mention it's 86 pages long?It starts off with a conversation between Erik and his father, someone who loves the City o [...]

    8. Impulsive decisions and anxiety attacks don’t really go together, but Erik, who recently lost his father, is going to have to figure out how to deal with the decision. His story is about dealing with his father’s death, embarking on a new life, and finding what he never expected to be his – a boyfriend and lover on top of a better way of dealing with his own shortcomings. This is a story of hope, and it’s set in a wonderful city that comes alive with a lot of interesting and fun details, [...]

    9. Despite this being a short read, I found myself intrigued by the main characters. The story focuses on Erik who leaves America spontaneously and heads to Pamplona, Spain, on the eve of the Running of the Bulls. He does this because his father had died earlier that year and attending the Running of the Bulls was his father’s tradition. However, because of his spontaneously trip, Erik ends up in the city without a place to stay. Luckily for him, a kind and attractive tour guide, David, learns of [...]

    10. I really liked this one.The Sun Still Rises is a sweet little read with a touch of sadness that keeps it grounded.Erik suffers from anxiety and after the death of his father feels a bit rudderless which leads him to make a decision that will change his life. A spontaneous trip to Pamplona to run with the bulls finds him in the city with no accommodations because he didn't plan ahead. Que David, a hot local with a spare room, and you've got the perfect set up for sparks to fly. Bailo does a great [...]

    11. A Joyfully Jay review. 4 starsThis is a book in the Dreamspinner Press World of Love collection and features what becomes an intercontinental romance. Erik is laughably naïve about his travel and plans in Pamplona. I chalk this up to his introvert personality and his grief, and it suited him. He’s certainly frustrated with himself for his quirks, which made him more endearing. David is a treasure, and I enjoyed spending time with him. I rather wished we had a bit more of his culture present, [...]

    12. 4.5This novella is a definite go-to read if you want a sweet, feel-good, low-angst romance. I loved the beautiful chemistry between the characters, and the way the MC's anxiety was handled. The way David offered his support to Erik during his anxiety attacks was so sensitive and unobtrusive and it made their unexpected connection so much more strong and meaningful.The city of Pamplona is a character in itself within the book. Laura Bailo did an amazing job describing its unique charm, so much so [...]

    13. This was a nice low-angst romance. I loved the setting - the descriptions in the book made me feel like I was there in the old city of Pamplona. And I recognised the experience of Erik, how a socially anxious person can sometimes feel at ease with a relative stranger because of an immediate connection - I've felt that too. I would have liked to see more of how their relationship developed over the years, though, because I wasn't convinced yet a couple of days' acquaintance could easily become a [...]

    14. I found this story delightful, meaningful, and full of emotions. Watching Erik go through the cycles of grief hurt my heart. Watching him do so in a manor not befitting himself was a hoot. Erik suffers from anxiety yet plans a last minute trip from Phoenix to Spain to feel a connection to his father. He makes no further arrangements other than getting there. Once he arrives he realizes just how out of his element he is and no place to go. Thank goodness for David, the local tour guide. You can s [...]

    15. Sweet story based in Pamplona, Spain. I enjoyed reading Erik's story and the love he had for his father. After his father's passing, Erik takes over the tradition his father had of going to Pamplona every year for the 'Corrida de Toros' (the bull run). What he finds there is the help and the love of David, a tourism officer, who offers him shelter once Erik realized he didn't have a place where to spend the nights. I liked how their romance develops and grows into something more; caring, and lov [...]

    16. When I started reading The Sun Still Rises, I did not expect it to be so charming. This story is heavily influenced by it’s setting, the Spanish city of Pamplona, where our main character travels to in order to get in touch with a little piece of his recently deceased dad.Erik, a well known author, travels to Pamplona to see the festival his father loved so much and Erik himself never really payed attention to before. Seeing as it was an impulse-trip, saying Erik didn’t come prepared is kind [...]
