Praying for Rain (Praying for Rain Trilogy #1) by B.B. Easton
“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.
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.
Well damn. BB just throughly shook up my world and set it on fire. This book satisfies my craving for something different and unique while appeasing the romantic in me.
Pretty much everything you can associate with the apocalypse this story had. Chaos, uncertainty and nail biting anticipation. It’s clear that our Heroine, Rain is going through the motions until judgement day or April 23rd to be more precise. Everything is crumbling around her and she’s been abandoned or ignored by everyone in her life. Then she meets Wes, who is like this unwilling knight that saves the day. But instead of shining armor, he has a Hawaiian print shirt a gun and a fighting spirit.He’s broody and angry and he gives Rain the one thing she didn’t know she was searching for, hope. These two clung to each other, made each other feel the gravity of what was happening and I loved that whatever was coming for them, they were going to face it together.
This is the start of one wild ride. It’s quirky, funny at times, and unexpectedly emotional. There are still so many unanswered questions burning in my brain but I’m totally ready for whatever Easton has in store for us.
