Publisher's Summary

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.

OMG AWESOME... a must read!!

Where does When It Rains rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

I think this may be the best book I have read/listened to EVER!!!!!!!! Loved it!!!!!!!

What was one of the most memorable moments of When It Rains?

I loved the napkins..... I will leave it at that ......don't want to give anything away. But there were so many more too.

What does Jennifer Mack bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

She did a great job.......but I think... usually if it is a good narration, its always better listening to the books... it makes the characters seem more real, life like.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Oh my, the whole book moved me! I cried soooooo much, this is a keep forever book!

Any additional comments?

The three people, Beau, Asher and Kate were all very likable, and I was torn between who to want to see together. But in the end, it worked out as best it could under the circumstances.I would definetly recommend this book, its a keeper!!!!!!!

What a great book!

It has been along time since a book has made me cry and this one did it.

It is not you typical love story but it covers innocent lost, soul mate, and true love!

I would recommend this to all!

Buyer be ware!!!

This is not really romance since romance only occupies 25% and the rest is gut wrenching sadness. Should have been listed under Drama. I am so drained emotionally that I got up out of bed trying to find another book to cleanse my mind before I sleep. This is a perfect book for those of you whom love tragedies and do not mind soul consuming sadness, but this is definitely NOT my kind of romance read to relax after a hard day.

Okay

This one was just okay for me. I didn't feel like any of the characters were relatable. Also, the narrators male voices were kinda rough.

Romance with some very sad/painful moments

Well, the author did a great job with depicting horrible events in such a way as to make me feel as miserable as the characters having to go through it. There were parts of this book I just hated, not because of bad writing or anything, but they were just so painful. The first chapter in particular may be triggering to some (sexual assault).

I loved how Asher treated Kate and I thought their scenes were a positive, very romantic depiction of respect and enthusiastic consent. On the other hand I felt like some of Beau's behavior in the beginning was troubling, like when he would call Kate constantly and get angry when she didn't answer or call back. In real life that would be a huge red flag for me, but I feel like that wasn't really addressed, which was disappointing in a book dealing with sexual assault and related topics. Maybe I'm the only one who didn't like Beau.

The narrator gave a good performance for the most part. I liked her normal voice, but I wasn't crazy about most of her voicing of the male characters. Though to be fair I didn't like some of the men so I guess it was ok their voices were unappealing.

A whingeing female lead who finally grows up

For the first half of this story I admit to struggling. Once she started to grow up and face life it got better
