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

For the Love of Raindrops is a story about two friends who met in their childhood at the age of six and spans until adulthood. You will see how they met, how they became friends, how strong of a bond was built between the two. The two will be tested time and time again, at such a young age they both experience tragedy.

I absolutely loved this story my emotions were all over the place with this book, it made me laugh, cry, and pissed off all rolled into one little ball but so worth it in the end. The story is also told in dual POV, it’s also a stand alone. This story was about friendship, love, normal everyday things, no BS, no alphas. This was my first book by Beth Michele and it won’t be my last.

Dylan and Evie have been the best of friends since childhood, they have been there for each other through everything. Each have lost family members, all though in a different way for one another. Through all of this they both have been a constant in each others lives, also in Evie’s life she has her sister, and Dylan his brother.

The two of them share everything together and they never keep secrets from one another, funny thing is that they both are hiding something from one another, they are both in love with each other, both are afraid to express those feelings in fear that the other does not feel the same way.

Dylan has been in love with Evie since he was little, it’s always been Evie for him and no one else. He’s been battling these feelings for years. Dylan is also battling some demons of his own, his father treated him like shit and his mother barley paid attention to him. If it weren’t for Evie, his brother, and grandma he wouldn’t have anyone he could rely on in his life, because of them Dylan was able to overcome some of the demons and move past it and become a beautiful man. By no means did he let the situation with his parents define him nope he rose above it. Dylan was the type of guy to tell it like it was and wore his heart on his sleeve, but at times he showed his possessive side.

“You make me glad that I was born.”

Evie was beautiful, strong, very stubborn, different than Dylan, total opposite of Dylan but it worked for them. Evie’s had heartbreak in her own life she still carries the emotional scars with her everyday, but she doesn’t let that define her. She wants to tell Dylan how she feels but is afraid, she would rather have him in her life as a friend than nothing at all.

“Sometimes life doesn’t give us a second chance.”

Dylan has finally been convinced by his brother and grandma that it’s time to tell Evie how he really feels about her, once he does express his feelings he’s completely shocked when Evie shares with him that she has the same feelings for him. What was once a friendship has now turned to a beautiful romantic relationship. But once again fate intervenes in there lives, another tragedy strikes that will put their love through a test.

Will they both be able to over come it and move on to the happy ending they deserve? Or will this be the end of a friendship/love affair?

“Your smile is like the sun, your eyes are like the ocean, your heart is my safe place.”
