Review: For the Love of Raindrops by Beth Michelle

A Best Friends to Lovers Story...

I fell in love with her when I was just a boy.

And then I never fell out of love. I just fell deeper.

But she has everything. She is everything. And I have nothing to offer her. Except my heart.

Sometimes the guy gets the girl, and they live happily ever after. I wanted to be that guy, you know? Especially since I can't imagine ever loving anyone else.

Right after I work up the courage to tell her, my world gets torn apart. My dream becomes my worst nightmare.

I wish I could go back in time. I wish I had told her sooner.

But most of all...I wish it would rain again.

This novel spans Coming of Age, Young Adult, and New Adult genres. A full-length Standalone novel that does contain mature language and some sexual situations, and may also contain some potential emotional triggers.

3.5 Star Review by Jen Skewes

For The Love of Raindrops is a really cute, sweet and enjoyable friends to lovers romance.  I always love reading books about two childhood friends who cross that line and become more.  This book is certainly about true love but there is so much more to it.  It is about friendship, love, and family. 

Evie and Dylan have been friends since they were kids.  Not just friends, but best friends.  They have been there for each other through everything.  They have both lost members of the family, all though each in a different way but they have been by each other's side through it all.  For all those special moments that you experience as a kid, these two did it together. 

Dylan has been in love with Evie for as long as he can remember but he is too afraid of telling her how he feels.   But what Dylan doesn’t know is that Evie has the same feelings for him.  She loves him but just like Dylan is too afraid of what will happen if she opens up to him.  But there comes a time when you just have to go for it.  You have to take a chance and follow your heart.  Evie and Dylan finally get to that point where they are no longer just best friends, but lovers as well.  When something happens that tests their love as well as their friendship, is their love enough for them to survive?

This story starts out in Dylan’s POV where we see just how much he loves her.  We also get a glimpse into what his life was like living with his father.  We see the special moments between him and Evie, like the first time they met.  But as we get further into the book we also get to see Evie’s point of view where you realize that she has the same feeling for Dylan and is just afraid to admit them.   And at this point you just want the two of them to finally realize that the feelings that they have for each other are mutual.  These two belong together and you can’t wait for the two of them to finally become more than just friends. 

Evie and Dylan were great as friends but just perfect as lovers.  They loved each so deeply and for so long.  They were “it “ for each other.  I really enjoyed this story because it was more than a love story.  But to be honest it was missing the depth that I was hoping for.  These two had been through so much and I thigh the storyline was great.  It was just missing something for me.  Bu overall I really enjoyed it.  The supporting characters in this story were such a wonderful addition and at the same time a big part of their lives.  They were their own family, who were there for each other and looked out for each other.  This is about true love, friendships, family and believing in yourself and your dreams enough to make them come true.
