“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.
Where to start. I loved this book, I love Rain and Wes and the crappy little town. I’m so ready for book #2 – when does that come out? SOMEONE?! Anyone?? Help a girl out over here.
The end is coming April 23rd. The world is in a panic over this. People are dying by their own hands, they are struggling to cope. Rain is just medicating herself to numb the pain of everything. She’s alone. Her boyfriend left for Tennessee to be with his family. Her own family, they don’t care. Then she meets Wes, who kidnaps her and uses her as a bargaining chip for what he needs. Yet, he also protects her and keeps her around. As his sidekick? Sidepiece? Who knows. But Rain is like a little puppy who enjoys the attention.
There are few days left and when he gets the opportunity to kidnap a girl and use her as a hostage, he takes it. Wes needs 3 things and none are a complication named Rain. Yet, he can’t seem to set her free. There is something about her, something that keeps pulling him in. What Wes doesn’t want to admit is that Rain is helping him. He’s still bitter and cruel sometimes, but he always comes for her. Now with a few moments left can he keep them both alive? And what about the crazies in town?
First I must say I do love me a good apocalypse book and this is one of them. It had all the elements I crave – life or death situations, chemistry, a broody male, a sweet female, and a count down clock. Second, I was unable to put this book down. From page one I was hooked on finding out what was really going to happen. Third, Wes.
The characters are great, even the secondary characters are good. The way BB Easton writes made me feel like I grew up in the town, that I knew where the hardware store was, the grocery store and I knew all the people who used to live there. Rain does a great job of making you feel welcome into her hometown.
