Rainy Day Lovers (The Rocklyns Book 3) by Alicia Street
4 out of 5 stars
I must say that this book starts with some series heart strings. This book can be read as a stand alone but I recommend picking up the previous 2 books as this one is just as good as the first two. Raina, or Rainy, as she likes to be called, spent most of her young adult life as the peacekeeper in what can be loosely called a dysfunctional household. When she grew up to become a family law attorney, she continued in that role, and is downright appalled to realize that she has pretty much let life slip her by.
Roman had a rough start in life. A tragic house fire took his family from him and left him orphaned, marred and in the foster system. When the group home setting didn’t work out so well, he took to the streets, only to be rescued, if only briefly, by the well-meaning Rainy. He fought his way out of his terrible position and is now a plastic surgeon, who helps heal the physical scars of others, all while the scars he suffers with, both physical and emotional, eat away at him.
These two characters are a fire waiting to ignite, and when they do, they are set ablaze. The dynamic between these two is unlike any that I have read before and the author has crafted a unique dual POV that had me hooked from the first page. You will not regret this story.
