Saving Rain (Rain Trilogy 1) - Karen-Anne Stewart

The Book
Release Date: 31 January 2013

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?

Saving Rain is intended for readers 18 and older.

My Opinion  2.5 STARS
** I received a free copy of this book from the author for an honest review**

This story has a sad prologue, then it hits you with a sledgehammer with chapter one and continues to hit your senses right until the end and the dramatic twist.

Raina is a very intelligent nineteen year old who is currently helping the FBI with her linguistic skills.  However after her ex-boyfriend attacks her, things spiral with the sexy FBI agent Kas when he takes her in and looks after her.

Kas helps Raina in becoming herself again instead of a victim, delving into her past and bringing out her most painful secrets and vows to always to protect her.

She helps the FBI further with her computer skills and really lends a hand into the human trafficking case they are working on.

Although I really love the story with this book I have big problems with the writing style.  The context constantly jumps from the points of views of her major characters and adds some of the minor characters.  Not only that is seems to jump from the first point of view to a third person point of view or more of a narration of their thoughts or feelings, making it seem unrealistic.

Saying that though I was really drawn into the story, once I had my mind wrapped around the above.  I look forward to see what happens in the next book in the series.
