    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!

    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 then 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!

The mood is dreary, I mean the apocalypse IS looming over the characters heads, but the writing and story still have some quirk and spunk behind them. The romance is reluctant-ish, but somehow inevitable. This story is hot. It’s sad. It’s gore-y. It’s emotional. It’s meaningful. It’s just fucking awesome.

    This story was everything I didn’t know I was missing. It has the whole package from action, to grief, to laughter, to love and everything in between. It peaked my interest right away with the compelling blurb and it kept my interest with a plot that was well thought out and different from what I’m used to reading. I’m an avid reader, and as such, I tend to see a lot of the same formulas. This book totally forges it’s own path. I loved it and felt it was refreshing.

    Rain is a complex heroine. She’s suffered a lot of loss and while the world is quite literally falling apart around her, she is in essence trying to find herself and furthermore, her place in a world that is to be no more. Wes is a survivor. A survivor that learned early on to leverage his strengths and do what needs doing without thought to anyone but #1. These two were created for one another. To save them from themselves. It takes them a bit to find their way, in what is actually a span of a few days, but the pace feels right on track.

    I loved the emotion and depth to the writing. The message dove beyond the surface to identify factors of human motivations. I’m eager for the next installment already. Yes, friends, we don’t get our HEA at this time 😭 and though it usually bothers me, I found myself thoroughly entertained. That cliffy ends on quite the twist. Another one for the favorites shelf!

    What would you do if you found out the exact date that the world would end? Would you live every day as if it were your last? Would you gather those you loved closer, wringing out every drop of love and happiness you could? Or would you just languish your days, waiting for the inevitable end?

    What would you do if you found out the exact date that the world would end? Would you live every day as if it were your last? Would you gather those you loved closer, wringing out every drop of love and happiness you could? Or would you just languish your days, waiting for the inevitable end?

    Rainbow, just like everyone else in the world, knew that doomsday was coming. And she couldn't wait! She was tired of living in pain and misery and if she could just make it to that day, then it would all be over and she'd find some peace. What was she running from? Why was she suffering so much heartache?

    Wes knew pain. They were closely acquainted. But he wasn't running. He intended to survive, come what may. His only concerns were food, shelter and survival. That is until he saves a young woman from a violent mob and all his plans go up in smoke. It's no longer just about him. He's part of a team and pretty soon, he's concerned with providing Rain with some sort of happiness, even if she believes it's fleeting.

    This is my first read from BB Easton and I freaking loved it!! She brought these characters to life so easily. They weren't one dimensional and she gifted us with their good, their bad, and their ugly, allowing us to fall in love with them AND their flaws. The apocalypse is coming and these two, in the midst of chaos and the stench of death, have found each other. But falling in love and being together doesn't solve their woes and I can't wait to see what happens next in their story!

    is the first Dystopian book in new to me author B.B. Easton's 'Praying for Rain ' Trilogy.

    can also be found on my blog:

    The apocalypse is coming April 23th..They only have 3 days left before the world they know ends...Those on the planet for almost a year have all been dreaming about the four horsemen of the apocalypse arriving on the 23rd of April.

    In this we meet pill popping nineteen year old Rain aka 'Rainbow' and our twenty two year old hero Wes. Both struggling to survive. With only three things on their mind.

    Most of Wes's life he's only had himself to rely on, shunted from home to home until he finds himself back in the place he left all those years ago. Franklin Springs, Georgia. The only reason he came back was shelter. He never expected to come across Rain. He saves her from a precarious situation which could've easily taken a turn for the worst.

    Dystopian is not a genre I would normally raise my hand to read, I can honestly count on one hand how many I've read. So it was with trepidation coursing through my veins when this landed on my kindle worried that I wouldn't like it. But I was pleasantly surprised, because I did end up really enjoying this.

    I don’t even know how to go about writing up this review, nothing that I’ve read to date can even come close to being compared to this book. It was weirdly unique, it pulled me in and grabbed my attention from the get go, I inhaled it, I wanted to see if their world was going to implode, I loved the anticipation that raced through my bloodstream, the jitters when they’d find themselves in precarious situations, giving me a nail biting read.

    First off, can I just say how much I absolutely love the cover of this book? I was in full on cover-lust when I first saw it. Now, I am truly a big fan of B.B. Easton, but I did wonder if her writing was going to be as phenomenal as it had been with her

    series. This time she wasn’t writing about her life experiences. Could she pull this off? I’m going to be honest, it took me a while to get into this story. Maybe it’s because I'm not certain that "dystopian" and "apocalyptic" stories are my thing, but as I said, I'm a fan of this author, and so I stuck it out.

    I did eventually start to feel a connection to the story. I began to care about the characters.

    During a time when the world was falling apart and chaos was running rampant, Wes and Rain find each other and although they started out as strangers they soon become inseparable.

    Is the world coming to an end? Or is it all some crazy hoax? Will these two be able to survive the insurmountable odds that lay ahead of them? Can we wait until the Fall to find out what happens next for Wes and Rain? I’m counting down the days!!

    Rainbow Williams aka Rain is a 19 yr. old girl who lives in Franklin Springs, Georgia. Lately life is pretty grim for Rain. The town she lives in has become a wasteland filled with abandoned homes, streets, and businesses. Everyone believes they are three days away from the apocalypse, and have accepted the world is going to end on April 23rd. People are either mad, sad, scared, numb, or desperate. They are convinced the end is near, and what’s coming is bad. Rain has fully come to terms with her fate because nothing really matters when your going to die soon anyway. Then she crosses paths with a drop dead gorgeous guy that is scary but exhilarating. She gets a thrill every time he locks those intense eyes on her.

    Wes Parker went through the foster care system as a kid and hasn’t had an easy life. He returns to his hometown in Georgia to ride out this predicted apocalypse. He thinks he’s unbreakable after surviving all the terrible things that have come his way, and he plans to still be standing after April 23rd. He now needs supplies, shelter, and something to defend himself. The beautiful girl he stumbles upon is just a bonus. Rain is useful and resourceful to him, and he decides to keep her around. Things continue to get more dangerous as everything around them is crumbling. While he wants to live, she’s given up, and they are each other’s distraction. Before long he’s made her feel again, and makes her feel free of the hopelessness and fear that have taken up space in her mind. Will they have a chance to explore this new connection they share or will their time run out?

    -Knowing he’s just as desperate for me as I am for him, does me in.

    -I’m attracted to the boy in him and scared of the man in him, and I’m pretty sure I’d take a bullet for both of them even though I don’t even know their last name.

    Praying For Rain by BB Easton is an all new romantic story full of humor, and excitement. Wes is that cocky, sexy jerk you just can’t help but fall for. This was my first book by BB Easton, and I really enjoyed it! It was unique and different, and I look forward to the next book in the trilogy!

    I loved Rain, she is tormented soul, more vulnerable, fragile heroine with good heart. She only wants to help so let her do it!!!

    And Wes is tough but wounded, more withdrawn but his walls slowly collapses as soon as he finds his real mission, instead of surviving, he chooses living by finding his love of his life. He finds his color of his soul. He finds his Rain-bow Song!

    PS. 21 Pilots are one of my favorite bands so I put the extra 0.25 points just because of writer’s good taste of music.

    Looking forward to read the other two books sooner!

    Have you ever read a book where the story unravels like a movie reel before your eyes? Because the entire time I was reading Praying For Rain, I could have sworn that I was inside of it. The world building, the mystery, the characters, the totally riveting story line all combined to suck you ride into the story and keep you at the edge of your seat the entire time!

    Dystopian is not a genre that I would typically gravitate towards, but when a trusted book friend tells you that a book is a must read, you read the damn book. And if you're sitting there and thinking on wether or not to take the plunge, I'll tell you that you NEED TO READ THIS DAMN BOOK!

    What would the world turn into if everyone knew they only have days to live? What if everyone was having extremely vivid nightmares that foreshadows the end of days on April 23rd? Nightmares that shows the world burning to the ground and a mysterious entity that's the cause of it all. Pure chaos and pandemonium would ensue, bringing out the very worst of humanity.

    That's the backdrop of the story in Praying For Rain. Sound delicious? Because it really was. The book introduces Rain, a young woman with secrets and some clearly deep seated issues. Rain has made her peace with the fact that she won't survive April 23rd. She's just trying to make the best of the days she has left and numb her pain and memories with anything she can. A chance encounter introduces her to Wes, a man that's determined to survive. What first starts as a mutually selfish partnership, soon begins to turn into something more.

    Wes and Rain were incredibly multi-layered characters. Deeply flawed and broken almost beyond repair, they both have some issues. But as the layers begin to unravel, you begin to see the why's of it and become more and more invested in these characters and their survival.

    While there's plenty of world building taking place, it's still very much a character driven story. The first half is somewhat slow paced and it picks up in the second half that leaves you with your jaw on the floor at the end.

    This was my first BB Easton book and I now know it will certainly not be my last. I can't wait for the continuation of this trilogy and see how it all ends.
