Rain by CE Johnson

This is one of those emotional reads that just literally lived up to the saying "All The Feels". I loved it cover to cover. This was my first read from this author and it set off the binge read of the rest of her books.

I got completely hooked on Rain and Charlie. I became obsessed with them as I was reading. They both had their struggles but you become compelled to see them through. This is a story of two souls who help each other bloom and heal little by little. I loved how they both broke from their shells and by the end I as all for them. I was completely hooked, like I said, and this had just the right amount fo drama to keep me hooked. A broken man and a woman running from something. That is always the start to a great story.
