Howdy, guys! Today, we have a guest reviewer on the blog – newbie author Kathleen Mareé (a round of applause for her, please, thank you) and she reviewed When It Rains by Lisa de Jong.

He doesn't care who I used to be, he's simply breathing life into what’s left.

Until one secret turns my world upside down…Again.
So I may be a little late to the party with this one, as it was published in 2013. But for those that know me well, I am always in search of those smouldering book boyfriends that we just have to know more about. Yes, we all know - I love love.
One thing you may not know, is I am not a fan of tear jerkers. Whilst it isn't the fact that I get emotional over a book nor the fact that I end up with mascara down my face and all over my clothes. No. Not at all. I guess it's the fact that I read to escape the daily grind and to feel good. Just like when you choose to go on a holiday to have a break from your reality. Let's not pretend how much it would suck if you spent your entire vacation blubbering like a baby ;) So this brings me to When It Rains. Prepare yourself. It. Is. A. Tearjerker.
