Book Review: Kissing in the Rain (Blushing Bay #2.5) by Annie Rains

Kissing in the Rain 
(Blushing Bay #2.5) 
Annie Rains

A Blushing Bay Prequel Novella

After a rough year, Jillian Maready is overdue for a relaxing weekend getaway. Where better to find that than Blushing Bay, North Carolina where her family vacationed growing up? When she sets sail on her own, however, she ends up stranded on a deserted island in the middle of one of the biggest storms of the summer—and in the arms of her sexy childhood crush.

As part of the Coast Guard Reserve, Gabe Sawyer is used to search and rescues. After learning that his sister’s best friend is in trouble, he doesn’t hesitate to brave the storm to find her. With the raging seas too volatile to navigate back, Gabe is in over his head when he and Jillian must spend one hot summer night surviving the storm together—and giving in to their sizzling attraction. But what happens when the sun comes back out?

My Rating:

Favorite Quote:

I don’t hate your guts. I’m just not very fond of them.

My Review:

This saucy little second chance tale was short and sweet and a petite side story to accompany the other installments in this engaging series featuring the Sawyer family.   Jillian and Gabe shared an embarrassing episode in their teens when fifteen-year-old bookworm Jillian had thrown herself at Gabe, her first crush and best friend’s older brother.  He had also feelings for her at the time but didn’t feel it appropriate, and his rejection had humiliated and continued to sting years later.  Nothing like being cold, wet, and in need of shared body heat while stranded together in a storm to work out those pesky issues.
