ARC provided by social butterfly PR in an exchange for honest review
This review is so overdue, I had some major adulting to tend to over the past few weeks. But, I finally got to read this. It was so good. I saw BB at Apollycon and she told me how hard it was for her to write fiction. I think she lied…lol. This story flowed as if BB lived this one as well. It was so authentic, so angsty, and so damn good. Finding love during the apocalypse is a far fetched plot, but believe me when I tell you it worked. These characters had many layers. It was fascinating to watch them struggle with their inner demons while fighting to survive the unknown. I enjoyed this action packed love story. This is the beginning of an amazing series!
With only three days left until the predicted apocalypse, the small town of Franklin Springs, Georgia, has become a wasteland of abandoned cars, abandoned homes, abandoned businesses, and abandoned people. People like Rainbow Williams.
Rain isn’t afraid of dying. In fact, she’s looking forward to it. If she can just outrun her pain until April 23, she’ll never have to feel it at all.
Wes Parker has survived every horrible thing this life has thrown at him with nothing more than his resourcefulness and disarming good looks. Why should the end of the world be any different? All he needs are some basic supplies, shelter, and a sucker willing to help him out, which is exactly what he finds when he returns to his hometown of Franklin Springs.
As society crumbles, dangers mount, and secrets refuse to stay buried, two lost souls are thrust together in a twist of fate—one who will do anything to survive and one who can’t wait to die.
Perhaps, together, they can learn how to live.
Before their time runs out.
