Praying for Rain ebook cover

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.
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.

Praying for Rain by BB Easton was such a breath of fresh air! It's unlike any adult romance I've read thus far, and for that reason alone, it's a must read. Fresh and original are the two words that most come to mind when I think of this book. We all need something out of the ordinary from time to time. I certainly did, and this really hit the spot! 

I adore apocalyptic fiction in book, TV series, and movie format. I've yet to read an adult romance with the subject though, so when I saw the blurb for this one, I knew I had to have it! Set three days before the apocalypse, the first installment in the Praying for Rain trilogy is intriguing and emotional with bursts of action and suspense woven throughout. BB had me on the edge of my seat trying to anticipate what was going to happen next from the very beginning! It ended in a completely different way than I thought it would, but I love the direction she took. I can't wait to see how it all plays out in the end!

Though I loved trying to figure out how the world was going to end,  my favorite thing about this story were the characters. Rain and Wes are true survivors. No matter what life throws at them, they keep going. That being said, neither of them are perfect people. They're strong but flawed, and I loved that. This isn't a story about two wonder kids. It's about two young people that have been torn apart by their loved ones and life coming together during an uncertain, dark, and chaotic time. 

The connection between Rain and Wes was immediate. Neither of them were looking for love, but that's exactly what they found. Normally, I'm not a fan of books where the couple falls for each other in a matter of days, but it made sense here. It's the end of the world. Emotions are running high. They literally don't know if they will survive for more than a few days. Couple that with the crazy, dangerous, and life threatening situations they endure together, it's no wonder they are feeling everything in a more profound manner. I'm looking forward to seeing their relationship continue to flourish over the course of the next two books. 

Praying for Rain by BB Easton is everything I wanted it to be and more! Despite the dreary atmosphere, I had a lot of fun reading the story, and after that ending, it looks like the fun is just beginning! Book 2 is officially now one of my most highly anticipated reads, and this author is one I'll be sure to keep an eye on from here on out!

If you're looking for something fantastically written, captivating, and unique with imperfect characters, mystery, and steam, this one's for you! 


Just like in my nightmare, her touch is all it takes for me to lose complete control—of the situation, of my willpower, of my own damn body. Instead of giving her a swat on the ass and sending her home like I know I should, I watch like a prisoner in my own mind as my arms wrap around her tiny shoulders and pull her in closer. No! What the fuck are you doing, pussy? Cut her loose! I scream at myself, call myself every name in the book, but the voice in my head is drowned out by the euphoric rush I get from holding this girl. She coils my shirt in both fists. Burrows her face into my neck. Her breath comes in short, hot bursts as she giggles against my skin. Her nose is cold. And all I can do is watch in humiliation as the meat puppet I live inside of tips its face down and smells her fucking hair. Oh my God, you’re pathetic. Sugar cookies. She laughs like a farm animal. She looks like a discarded porcelain doll that raided a teenage boy’s closet. And she smells like fucking sugar cookies. Let her go, dipshit! Supplies! Shelter! Self-defense! That’s what you need! But the warning falls on deaf ears because now my stupid fucking cock has gone rogue, too. Why not? Nothing else is listening to me. It springs to life and rams itself into my zipper, seeking Rain’s attention as well. I take a small step back, just enough to keep from shoving my hard-on into her belly like a full-fledged creep, but she responds to my step back with one of her own. And that’s it. The moment is over. The laughter is gone. We drop our arms, and we begin walking.
