Praying for Rain Synopsis
“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. 

"Supplies. Shelter. Self-defense." 

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.

Critic Reviews

"BB Easton absolutely slays with Praying for Rain! A genius, unique premise with complex, intriguing characters, this story took us on the ride of our lives, and WE’RE DYING FOR MORE!!" (Max Monroe, New York Times best-selling authors)

Great series

The beginning is very captivating and the whole series kept me interested in seeing what happens next. The narrators do a wonderful job. The main male character was hard to like at the beginning but as the story continued I understood him more and by the end I really liked him. I just didn't really agree with the storyline of the bad/friendly family got in the end .

Fantastic books!

These are excellent! Rain is a character you love from the beginning.. Wes is one you’re not really sure about until late in book 2. All three of them are great stories and tell a story that is riveting.

The narrators were easy to listen to and did an amazing job with the characters.

All New to Me!

New author, new genre, new narrators! I ended up really enjoying this trilogy. Since this was my first dystopian/apocalyptic romance, I want sure what to expect. BB Easton gave you all the feels with Rain and Wes's 3-part story. Both Madeleine and Alex narrated well, bringing the story to life. 100% would recommend if this is your thing, but be wary of triggers. There are descriptions of murder, rape and assault throughout the book. They address integral parts of the storyline though, so they are not gratuitous.

Excellent storyline!

I listened to this first book in Audible, and I really wanted to DNF simply because the male narrator was driving me crazy how slow he spoke! But the story was so good, I couldn't stop!! (I know, I should've just stopped and read it instead, but I was in the middle of moving and didn't have time to sit and read an actual book! Lol)
My actual point here is, this book was amazing and you need to read it! It was a beautifully sad story, mixed with a glimmer of hope. Dark and despairing, with moments of humor, 2 broken people who find each other at the end of the world. Can't wait to READ book 2!! ☺

Worth the read,

Actually enjoyed the 1st book the 2nd book was a big Effie wasn't quite sure how I felt about it the 3rd book pissed me off. The 3rd book reminded me of the purge and The Hunger Games wrapped into one book,

Quin book 2 she is a bitch but I am glad she helped Rain out in book 3.

I am super happy about the end they would have probably been very pissed off had the main character died.

I love Alex Kydd (his voice is sexy as hell) but he really shouldn't do girl voices lol!!

The Rain Trilogy Box Set

The Rain Trilogy Box Set (Praying for Rain / Fighting for Rain / Dying for Rain) is a dystopian romance trilogy. A pre, during and post apocalypse new world detailed very descriptively and vividly. The authors writing style is analytical. The story is sensibly plotted and the timelime coincides with each book in the series. Myriad of action, angst, drama, suspense and unexpected twists. Ends with a great epilogue.

Madeleine Dauer, Alex Kydd dual narration brought the story out in a realistic way. Madeline Dauer's inflection is unique and fit what I would expect Rain's character to be. I enjoyed listening to her narration. Alex Kydd's inflection is different and feels unprofessional but it maybe the way he wants to come off as playing the character. In the beginning he was difficult to listen to but as the story progressed you get used to his inflection and think of him as Wes.

Overall a entertaining listen well worth your time.

Couldn't finish due to the male performer

I was really excited to read this story and was starting to get into it, until the male narrator started. He sounds like a 60+ burned out surfer and I just couldn't get past that. I only got about a third of the way into the story and I had to stop because there was just something about his performance that was like nails on a chalk board to me. The book seems to have an interesting story line, so I will get the book and read it myself. I am sorry about the review and look forward to finishing the story..... minus the audio.

What Would You Do In The End of The World?

This was my first BB Easton book but it will not be my last! This story had me on the edge of my seat and I am not normally one for apocalyptic reads, but I thoroughly enjoyed every minute of this story. Easton gave us humor, loss, grief, hope, joy, so many emotions, throughout the story and they were all so well placed. I loved listening to this as a complete set because I did not have to wait to find out what happened next to Wes and Rain. I cannot recommend this high enough for readers who love a romance that’s just outside of the box!

Praying for rain

This one certainly rain the emotions down. I’m not usually interested in dystopian romance novels however I kept hearing how stunningly amazing this book is. So I took a chance and I certainly do not regret my decision. As the secrets and emotions seep out of this novel it is nearly impossible to pause. The characters were so well written and the storyline was clearly well thought out and planned. This isn’t a book that left me thinking what have I just been reading this was a book that I loved. I almost felt like I was there.

The narration helped to lift this story to the very next level. They were just perfect and I loved every second of this book, even as it ripped out my heart in places and in others left me fearing for the characters. This is a book that is not easy to put away, it lingers even still in the back of my mind and I know I will have to do a re listen in the very near future. I couldn’t recommend it any more and it may have even convinced me to read/ listen to more dystopian romance.
