REVIEW**~**When it Rains by Lisa De Jong – Review and GIVEAWAY!!!


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…




What did the author just do to me?!? I say just but it has taken me days to process this story before I could write a review without flooding my computer with tears. Wow!! Someone should have warned me…there needs to be a huge warning in the beginning of this book that says, possibility of dehydration from crying your eyes out for hours. Yes, I said HOURS!!! Me, this book bitch who hardly ever cries over books, cried for HOURS!! But damn it was so worth it. This book is AMAZING!! One of my all time favorites! I am going to recommend that everyone read it, but be warned that you do not want to read it in public. Again, that would have been nice to know before I was crying on the elliptical in the gym. Yep, I’m a dork 

“Honestly, I don’t think anyone can fix me. I wish they would just stop trying.” –Kate

So, enough about the crying…not really but let me tell you a tiny bit about the book. Only a tiny bit, though. About all your getting out of me is Kate is one tough chick!! She doesn’t know it but anyone who goes through all she goes through before the age of 20, is bad ass! And Beau, I loved him, and I cried for him, and I wanted to choke him. Maybe all in the same time a few times, too. And then Asher….Asher is perfect!! Asher is the character in this story that will take me a long time to forget. Not only did he teach Kate a few things about life and love, but I think he taught me a few things too 🙂 

“From now on…”kiss. “When it rains…” kiss. “Think of me.” –Asher

I’m still swooning and teary up just thinking about it and writing this review. Seriously, people!! Get this story and read it…ASAP. You will cry your eyes out, take it all in, and then come back and thank me for recommending it :)
