Review of Praying for Rain by BB 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.

Review

★★★★✩

What would you do if you found out the exact date that the world would end? Would you live every day as if it were your last? Would you gather those you loved closer, wringing out every drop of love and happiness you could? Or would you just languish your days, waiting for the inevitable end?

Rainbow, just like everyone else in the world, knew that doomsday was coming. And she couldn't wait! She was tired of living in pain and misery and if she could just make it to that day, then it would all be over and she'd find some peace. What was she running from? Why was she suffering so much heartache?

Wes knew pain. They were closely acquainted. But he wasn't running. He intended to survive, come what may. His only concerns were food, shelter and survival. That is until he saves a young woman from a violent mob and all his plans go up in smoke. It's no longer just about him. He's part of a team and pretty soon, he's concerned with providing Rain with some sort of happiness, even if she believes it's fleeting.

This is my first read from BB Easton and I freaking loved it!! She brought these characters to life so easily. They weren't one dimensional and she gifted us with their good, their bad, and their ugly, allowing us to fall in love with them AND their flaws. The apocalypse is coming and these two, in the midst of chaos and the stench of death, have found each other. But falling in love and being together doesn't solve their woes and I can't wait to see what happens next in their story!
