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…
This book had me in a wreck of emotions. I had so much emotion for all of the characters in this book. I felt all of their joy, sorrow, pain and suffering. I had to take breaks from this book to put myself back together. It was that good. One night changed everything between Kate and her best friend Beau. The boy that she grew up next door to, the boy she had the forever crush and dreams of marrying one day. And what happened to Kate was not Beau’s fault. Beau had finally come around to noticing Kate, but his love was a little too late. Then walks in Asher. Beau is off to college, while Kate is in her own world of hurt at home. Asher has a troubled background himself, but there is this connection between Kate and Asher that can not be denied. I can’t say more, because I don’t want to give anything away. Let the roller coaster ride of emotions begin!
Lisa is great at pulling emotions from you. When you read one of her books you get lost. Just what a good book should do. I highly recommend When it Rains and Lisa’s other books too. You will never be left disappointed!
