LennonsRainSynopsis:

Sometimes in love, you choose wrong…

Eight years ago, Lennon lost his heart to Rain, and suddenly she’s back, all grown up and sexy as hell. At a sorority party, he convinces himself that outbidding every other guy for a body shot from Rain is for charity. But he knows better. He doesn’t want any guy, except him, tarnishing the memory of the little girl he proposed to in fifth grade.

Jinx loves Lennon and is past ready for him to make his move. With his sexual prowess, she worries why he hasn’t made any advances. She fears she is losing him, and the only way to keep him is to overcome her past and give him what he desires.

Rain knows Lennon is trouble. If she couldn’t say no to the gangly boy asking her to skateboard off some roof, how will she refuse Lennon’s seductive powers now that he is a man? Rain has many reasons to resist his charm. He has a girlfriend, he’s moving to LA with her, and Rain has no intention to march in the long parade of Lennon Tyler conquests.

Now, Lennon must choose. Someone has to lose, and that person could be him.

Review:

Quite often I find the second book in a series or trilogy, has something lacking or it’s just filler between the two great parts of the whole story. Lennon’s Rain was not that kind of book.

Chris Myers added a whole new layer to Lennon as a character. He’s grown up since the last book. He’s matured– of course he is still only 18yrs old so let’s cut him a little slack. This time Lennon has some difficult choices to make that won’t only affect him. I definitely sensed a shift in his character development. Chris Myers did a great job of maturing Lennon without taking away who he is or his true character. He still remained the sweet boy who needed love and validation.

The introduction and seduction of the character Rain was fantastic. I absolutely loved her character. She was vulnerable yet strong, quiet yet feisty. And she was absolutely, genuinely caring, loving and worthy. She was so selfless. Rain’s conscience aptly named Devil Girl is a riot. Their conversations and inner dialogue add a great element of humour.

In the first book Lennon’s Jinx, I really liked Jinx’s character. I was on her cheer team. This time around I wanted her to fall off the pyramid. She rubbed me the wrong way with her seemingly entitled and arrogant self. I know she was insecure about her and Lennon but my goodness she was just so harsh about things.

One thing I notice about Chris Myer’s books (at least this series) is how she has a variety of characters– in that they are all ethnically different. It’s a very cool thing. i also love how she does not use profanity gratuitously. Words aren’t there for shock factor. Her writing and storyline take care of that and take care of the language that is used. The cussing isn’t ever necessary.

Although the characters in this book deal with some very grown up situations, I really like that they act upon these things as any 18yr old would and not so ideally (as if the world was perfect) or unrealistically.

Chris Myers writes a well thought out story that is chronologically and emotionally appropriate and fitting. I love that you can lose yourself in the story but you are not reading something so far fetched that it is too perfect. her characters are so full and layered. Even the secondary characters such as Lennon’s little sister Currie play an important role throughout the story. I can’t wait to read the next book in this series. I would absolutely recommend this book. The story is full and will keep you engaged. D 4/5

    Thanks for the giveaway.

  3. I have Lennon’s Jinx on my TBR but didn’t realize it was a series. I’m glad to hear that the second book didn’t suffer the sophomore slump. 😉 I am also glad to read that Ms. Myers includes diversity in her cast of characters. That’s always refreshing. Great review!

    I haven’t heard of this series before your post and now I am intrigued. Really curious which girl Lennon will choose. Ah the joys of too many books to read and so little time!
