Praying for Rain - Review

“None of this matters, and we’re all going to die.”

With only three days left until the predicted apocalypse, the small town of Franklin Springs, Georgia, has become a wasteland of abandoned cars, abandoned homes, abandoned businesses, and abandoned people. People like Rainbow Williams.

Rain isn’t afraid of dying. In fact, she’s looking forward to it. If she can just outrun her pain until April 23, she’ll never have to feel it at all.

“Supplies. Shelter. Self-defense.”

Wes Parker has survived every horrible thing this life has thrown at him with nothing more than his resourcefulness and disarming good looks. Why should the end of the world be any different? All he needs are some basic supplies, shelter, and a sucker willing to help him out, which is exactly what he finds when he returns to his hometown of Franklin Springs.

As society crumbles, dangers mount, and secrets refuse to stay buried, two lost souls are thrust together in a twist of fate—one who will do anything to survive and one who can’t wait to die.

Perhaps, together, they can learn how to live.

Before their time runs out.


Book Breakdown 

This is a pretty short read but it's packed full! There is action, romance, and a dude with a very dirty mouth. I love books that are set just on the edge of something truly terrible, the build-up in this one was so good that I felt my anxiety acting up while reading it. No joke, that's never happened to me before but that's just how tense everything felt. So well done for creating the perfect end of time feeling!

The characters are real. This means they are flawed but still strong and it's freaking wonderful! I felt for these two, my heart truly went out for them and I even teared up just a bit reading this. This does contain some steamy scenes and they're superb!

My only problem with this book was that it wasn't long enough. I wanted more! When's the next one come out? I'm dying to continue this story!
