Book Review: Saving Rain By Karen-Anne Stewart

Saving Rain 
(Rain Trilogy #1) 
By Karen-Anne Stewart 

Raina has tried to forget her past, forget the pain, but when she finds herself staring straight into the fury blazing in her ex-boyfriend's eyes, her dark past comes rushing back. Furious with herself for actually having chosen someone like her father, she uses that anger to her advantage and fights for her life...and for her future that she prays will involve the man she can't seem to get out of her head. Kas is a natural leader, a fierce fighter, the type of man you send in when you need to get the job done. He is a courageous hero who is used to risking his own life to save others, but can he save the one who has captured his heart from her horrific past and the men who are hell-bent on destroying her? As Kas and Raina try to navigate through the twists and turns of a deviously intelligent human trafficking group, they find solace in each other's arms. Can they infiltrate the trafficker's tight ring, saving the innocent lives from imminent danger before it's too late?


Written primarily in 3rd person POV.

***Disclaimer: Due to sensitive issues of abuse, human trafficking, and mature scenes, The Rain Trilogy is intended for readers 18+. Although Saving Rain does not include 'mature' scenes, the final two novels do.***

My Review:

* A free eCopy was provided by the author in exchange of an honest review.

This was an amazing read. Even though I felt like an outsider the whole novel I still loved this. The story was very well written and very well researched and described. I felt like I was watching a movie unravel before my eyes without feeling connected to anyone. It was a new experience for me and it surprised me by how much I liked it.

Raina is a very complex character. She's been abused her whole childhood. That is, until she got away and changed everything about herself. She can go from completely open and free to closed off and having an attitude in the span of seconds. She also second guessed herself A LOT. The one good thing in her life is Kas.

Kas is the all around nice guy who takes an interest and falls for Raina. He's a detective for the FBI and he's used to giving an order and having people tripping over themselves to make it happen. It's sweet having him come to the conclusion that that isn't going to work on Raina. It's probably what makes her even more intriguing to him and probably what makes him want to change to help her. 

That ending broke my heart. I can't really say much of anything or I'd be giving away huge spoilers, but come on! Hasn't Rain suffered enough? Mrs. Stewart, I hope you have something awesome planed for Rain because she really does deserve it after all she's been though.

Favorite Quotes:

"Yeah, that's all it took, I'm a quick learner, too, darlin'."

"What do I have to do to prove that I will not hurt you, that I will prove that I will never hurt you?"
