When I read that this was an ugly cry read which would normally bother me, I jumped in anyway because I am loving this authors work, each book I read is another Journey.
Playing in the Rain is indeed another journey with the lives of two people but it wasn't just a tearjerker, I was actually left with snot and tears and felt the whole experience including the heartbreak.
Did I enjoy it though even though I feel heartbroken?
Definitely, YES!. I've found books like this that draw out all the emotions stick with you, and Playing in the rain will definitely stay with me and not just be another book on my shelf.
It's very rare I give a five star to a short read but this wasn't lacking in anything and did actually feel too long or too short, it was perfect.
A bit about the plot;
When Ava Lawton walks out of her job and is stuck in a long line if traffic, it's just another kick to an already horrible day, it's pouring with rain and things cant get any worse but this is when she first sees Cody standing near the park with a dog, the rain isn't bothering him and there's something about him that draws Ava to him.
There eyes meet and Cody runs over to give her a note that reads YOUR BEAUTIFUL.
Ava goes to find her mystery man the next day at the park and from there I was taken on an amazing adventure with Ava and Cody, it was heart warming and then heart breaking.
"Tell me about Cody Richard's what's he really like"?.
"He's just a regular guy"
" You glow, your all glowy"
"I think that's the loco weed talking"
“No, it’s you. That’s what you’re like. You glow and you’re all light. Everyone sees it. You’re like sunshine—with a great ass.”
Such a beautiful love story.
