There are all different reasons for choosing the books we read. Usually I choose books based on recommendations or reviews that I read. This time, I chose the book because I thought the author had a cool name. I have a “thing” about names. I always find them to be an important element to a character. I personally spend a huge amount of time when considering names for my characters. I love that Blue Ashcroft chose unique names in this book and explained the motivation of the characters’ parents.
Rain – “My parents are from Texas. My mom says I was as welcome as summer rain.”
Knight – “[My mom] was really into romance novels. She says I saved her life when I was born. She calls me her knight.”
It is a sweet, relatively innocent, romance involving characters that both have a traumatic past. The ending left me feeling satisfied and optimistic.
