Review: Saving Rain – Karen-Anne Stewart
Raina has lived a difficult life. She’s had to contend with so much abuse, never knowing how the next day will be. Though she’s done her best to overcome the adversities littering her every path, it’s hard for her to forget the past. Most especially when the one person she thought she could trust has turned against her.
When Chris changes the way her life is going yet again, Raina isn’t sure as to whether she can weather the storm coming her way. She’s tired of feeling pain. Tired of having to live her life in seclusion. Granted, she has a very good reason for doing so. Just once, though, she’d like to live her life just the way she wants to.
Determined to overcome the unexpected attack she’s recently suffered, Raina places her trust in Kas’ hands. He’s her savior, after all. Without him, she’s not sure where she’d be. In her mind, he’s the one good thing that’s happened in her life, and she’ll do everything possible to make sure he stays that way.
Though Kas is determined in knowing more about her, Raina isn’t quite sure if she can divulge all of her secrets to him. Her trust has been broken before. She doesn’t want to suffer the pains of the past ever again. Yet there’s something she can’t ignore-the way he makes her feel whenever he’s around. Somehow, some way, she’ll get over her uncertainties. Until then, the answers to his questions will have to wait.
Saving Rain is a wonderful start to a great series. While abuse is a difficult topic to broach, Karen-Anne has done so in a manner that allows the reader to immerse him/herself in the story itself. She’s written a story that many can relate to. It’s thought-provoking and stirring, tugging on your heartstrings as you flip through every page. I look forward to what the next book has to bring to this series.

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?
