About The Book:

Title: When It Rains
Author: Lisa De Jong
Release Date: 25th September

One night changed my life forever.

Beau Bennett has been my best friend since I can remember. He was my first crush before everything came crashing down, and now he wants more, but it's more than I can give him. Things are different now. I wish I could tell him why, but I can't.

I haven’t told anyone.

I never knew how much I really needed him until the day he left for college, and I was completely alone.

Then one day, Asher Hunt rides into town with his dark, captivating eyes and cocky grin. He doesn't care who I used to be, he's simply breathing life into what’s left. People warn me to stay away from him, but he helps me forget the pain that has held me hostage for so long; something I thought was impossible before he walked into my life.

I’ve been hurt.

I’ve been saved.

And I’ve found hope.

I thought my story was written that night, but now I know it was only a new beginning. Until one secret turns my world upside down…


My Thoughts:

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

There is something magical and absolutely beautiful in books that can manipulate your emotions as well as change your heart. When every page is not only a part of the written story, but somewhere along, it’s starting to become a part of your reality. There is no better part of reading great story than being so tangled with it, that you ache, you cry and you’re happy for the fictional characters.

When It Rains has this amazing asset. It captivated me quickly with brutal honesty, raw ad gritty beginning and hidden message. I was not expecting that I will be flooded with so many emotions nor did I know When It Rains will play on the strings of my soul.

When It Rains is Kate’s story, a nineteen year old, who lost her life two years ago and is now fighting to survive and forget about the night that crushed her.

One night, one moment, one decision can
change the whole path that our future takes.

No one knows about her secret, so Kate has to carry the weight of it on her arms by herself. She wasn’t able to tell her mother or best friend Beau. Now is time for him to go to college and leave Kate’s side and she feels entirely alone. When they share one special moment, Kate knows she has to push Beau away. She’s not good enough for him.

My future was taken from me, and I can’t take his too.

Kate meets Asher in the restaurant where she’s waitressing. Few encounters later she can’t get him out of his mind. With him, for the first time in two years she feels free and happy. But he also has secrets that are breaking him.

This beautiful kaleidoscope of painful feelings mixed with hope and love, shattered my heart. Kate’s story is one of these that are hard to stop thinking about. It’s impossible to not feel anything when this novel is filled with everything

I loved how brave Kate was despite her brokeness. I hurt alongside with her on every road she took, with every decision and consequences. Her relationship with Asher was mesmerizing. It was beautiful to see two people that understand and heal each other. How I wish things were different for them! I cried so hard, I couldn’t stop stubborn tears that kept coming and coming.

It was wonderful to see Kate when she finally opened up to someone, she changed for the better, and her love for Asher was beautiful, but still it was brutal to read about Beau and his feelings for her that never really changed.

I ached for all of them, and when finally I understood what is going to happen, my heart almost burst from the pain. And then my hysterics began. I cried and sobbed and I felt like there’s nothing in the world that could give me relief. I overdosed on emotions.

Don’t worry, there is still HEA, that is exceptionally beautiful. But for some reason it still left me completely drained. I have never felt so destroyed and crushed by a book. When I think there is nothing that could surprise me and show me something different, a little gems like When It Rains happen. And as much as I hate feel emotional pain and cry… the feeling after it is just hard to describe. It’s Katharsis .

Overall, When It Rains will capture readers and enchant them. This enaging, breathaking story is painfully good written piece, that snakes it’s way into your heart and doesn’t let go, doesn’t let you breathe and what’s more it’s changes you.

I highly recommend When It Rains for every beauty and exceptional love fan.

I’ll never regret you.
