Overview

*This book contains mature subject matter and is not intended for those under the age of 17.*

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...

Again.

I've been hurt. I've been saved. And I've been found. When It Rains, is a unique extraordinary story of a young woman's journey of being victimized, broken, and finding herself. Kate is dealing with a personal secret that is debilitating her present and future. But its Kate self awareness and forgiveness that enables her to move on in her life. I believe that life is a series of coincidences, and that night, coincidence screwed me over. But at what cost? Kate is a nineteen year old girl who suffered a traumatic incident two years prior. This said incident changed everything within her causing a ripple affect between her and her loved ones. Kate is just a shell of a person she was two years ago. But before this traumatic incident occurred, Kate had a best friend named (Beau) who was her everything. He was not only her best friend but her neighbor, and the only man she's ever loved. Unfortunately, due to Kate's graphic traumatic event all she seems to be doing is pushing Beau away. Beau & Kate Things turn for the best when Asher pops up in her life. Randomly out of the blue, Asher turns Kate's world upside down. But in the best way possible. The more time Kate & Asher spend together the closer they become allowing Kate to heal in the process. Little does Kate know that Asher's main goal is to replace all her bad memories with new happy ones. From now on..kiss.. When it rains..kiss.. Think of me... Unbeknownst to Kate, Asher is keeping his own secrets. But its Asher's secret that will devastate, crumple, and alter their lives forever It's up to Kate to see where she goes from here. Life's not fair. Life's often complicated, leaving us to deal with things that we shouldn't have to. Life can make you smile one day, only to leave you broken into tiny little pieces the next. How do you choose between TRUE love, and your SOUL Mate? Thoughts: This was a slow paced unconventional love story about living your life to the fullest and never taking anything for granted. Love hard, and play hard! When It Rains is a emotional book about love, loss, and second chances. Asher's & Kate's relationship was a beautiful heartfelt journey and was glad I went along for the ride.....

When it rains....think of me. What a beautiful, heart breaking story. I need to let you know that I am an ugly crier. Seriously ugly, we are talking fat tears, runny nose, swollen eyes, scrunchy red face and all. It ain't pretty, so I don't like to do it. I usually laugh in the face of books that try to wring a tear from my eye and then laugh at those that admit to sniveling to those said books. I take pride in my cold heart and iron will, I love my impenetrable Kevlar wall I build around my emotions...I LOVE all those things, but none of them saved me from this book. I ugly cried until I looked like a blobby sea creature...it wasn't a proud moment for me and I hated this book for doing that to me. The words soul mate and true love are normally used synonymously and are interchanged to describe that ONE special person in your life, but what if, they both existed in the forms of two different people? Meet Kate, Beau and Asher and this is their story. When reading this story, it was impossible for me not to fall in love with each of these characters and feel them in my core. I felt moments of pure torture, agony, despair and confusion, but nothing compared to the pure love that I felt while reading this. You have to know that I HATE love triangle books, if done incorrectly they will cause me to go into a rage induced episode that is ugly for everyone, so if you are the same way, rest assured, Ms. De Jong knows her stuff! I won't lie to you and say that I was the perfect little reader while reading this, because I wasn't. There was a moment about 50% into the book that I just could not take it anymore. I was a mess, literally. Taking shots of tequila at 8 in the morning to soothe my nerves and nervously pacing my living room, wondering exactly what is was that Ms. De Jong was up to. The angst and suspense was killing me and so I did the unforgivable....NO, I did NOT skip to the last page in the book! Sheesh! I read a few spoilers online....and....my heart hurt. I ended up finishing the book, even armed with my spoiler knowledge, I still bawled like a baby. I recommend anyone that is interested in reading this, to just do it. Don't become weak like me and peruse reviews until you "accidentally" come across spoilers, just read it. You won't be sorry.

A story to remember for sure. Grab a box of tissues, and prepare to be gutted. One phrase in peticular tore me up (by Archer.) This book will make you appreciate your loved ones and your life. If your feeling overwhelmed by things read this! The story will help put your life back in perspective. Recommend! S.A.K.

**5 Stars** WoW what a great love story...from the start.. so not what I had expected (in a good way). The characters were well written. The ONLY reason I wouldnt re-read it over & over is because I balled my eyes out LoL. Some love scenes & explict langage. *250+ pages*
