When It Rains Blog Tour Stop By: Lisa De Jong

One night changed my life forever.

Beau Bennett has been my best friend since I can remember. He was my first crush before everything came crashing down, and now he wants more, but it's more than I can give him. Things are different now. I wish I could tell him why, but I can't. 

I haven’t told anyone.

I never knew how much I really needed him until the day he left for college, and I was completely alone.

Then one day, Asher Hunt rides into town with his dark, captivating eyes and cocky grin. He doesn't care who I used to be, he's simply breathing life into what’s left. People warn me to stay away from him, but he helps me forget the pain that has held me hostage for so long; something I thought was impossible before he walked into my life.

I’ve been hurt. 

I’ve been saved. 

And I’ve found hope. 

I thought my story was written that night, but now I know it was only a new beginning. Until one secret turns my world upside down…


Lisa De Jong is a wife, mother and full-time number cruncher who lives in the Midwest. Her writing journey involved insane amounts of coffee and many nights of very little sleep but she wouldn’t change a thing. She also enjoys reading, football and music.

 “Did you change your mind about college yet?” he asks, breaking the silence.
            I haven’t changed my mind. I haven’t even given it a second thought.  It doesn’t matter anyway; I don’t see much of a future for myself.  “No, I’m staying here, at least this year.”
            “I wish you’d change your mind.  You have so much to offer, Kate.  You should let the world see it,” he says, keeping his eyes on the water.
            “I just can’t right now,” I whisper, swallowing down my emotions.
            “Something changed you, and I’m going to keep digging until I find out what that is.” His head tilts in my direction and our eyes lock.  I want to tell him that the old Kate is never coming back, but we’ve had that conversation before.  He will only ask questions that I don’t want to answer. 
            “I’m sorry,” I say, turning my eyes away from him.
            My eyelids are getting heavy, so I lie on my back and wrap the jacket tightly around me. I close my eyes and focus on the sound of nature to keep my mind off of other things.  When I feel Beau against my side, I open my eyes to see him looking down at me, his head resting in his hand.  His face moves closer to mine and I can feel my heart beating hard against my chest.  When I feel his warm breath against my mouth, I close my eyes and his lips gently brush against mine.  His touch is warm and tender, and I can’t help but comb my fingers through his hair.  I’m trying to make an old dream come true.
             I let myself get lost in him.  For a moment, I feel as if we’re the only two people in the world and nothing else matters.  I feel like there is a small chance I could let go of everything and just be with him like this forever, but when he leans in to me and rests his body on top of mine, panic shoots through my entire body.  My mind flashes to Drew and painful memories start to race through my head as I push roughly against his chest.  “Stop!” I cry, rolling onto my other side. 


I have not read any of Lisa's books this was the first one.  When it Rains deals with a very serious issue in the book so I will warn you know!  I couldn't put this book down even when i when I was mad and UGLY CRYING I kept reading.  Kate is 16 when the book starts and one horrible night a tragic event happens to her to forever change her life and she tells no one her best friend was grounded that night so he wasn't there to save her and her girlfriend was off with a guy.

This night changes everything Kate pushes everyone away becomes withdrawn and even gives up college we fast forward to her best friend  leaving for college and confessing his love for her.  Kate believing she is damaged and cant be good for him pushes him away sending him away to school .

One day while Kate is at work a Hansom stranger happens to sit in her section and slowly as days go by he brings her back to life and when they both share their deepest darkest secrets their lives are changed Kate finally has a huge weight lifted from her and starts to live again and then just when life is better she has found love again  her world comes crashing down.  This was such a heartbreaking book a book that reminds you life is not all hearts and roses that sometimes life has other plans for us.  I will say only 2 other books/series have made me UGLY CRY and when i say ugly cry i didn't just tear up over sad parts i full on bawled and those 2 authors were Molly McAdams and Lori Otto and now I can add Lisa De Jong.  

This has been added to my reread on a rainy day list!!
