Ava has had the worst day ever. She has quit her job and has no money in the bank and now she is stuck in bumper-to-bumper traffic in the pouring rain.
That is when she catches a glimpse of the most beautiful boy she has ever seen. He is running in the rain with the most radiant smile on his face. She knows right then that she has to know everything about him. But she never could have guessed that this boy would change her life forever.
“Do what you need to, Ava, but don’t let life be something that happens while you’re looking in the other direction.”
Cody Richards is sweet, gorgeous and plans on living life to the fullest. He talks Ava into helping him complete his ‘bucket list” over the summer. Together they will ride the wind, sleep under the stars and find a once in a lifetime love.
“I wish…” I began to say. But Cody interrupted me. “No, don’t wish for anything else. We had 10 wishes, and all of mine have come true. That’s enough for me.” I kissed him again and again, and there was nothing left to say. I climbed wearily out of the cab after ravaging his lips for one last time. “I love you,” I said. “I love you to the stars and beyond,” he replied.
Playing in the Rain is beautiful and poignant love story as only Jane Harvey-Berrick could tell it. Her heroine, Ava is set adrift and living a life that makes everyone happy – everyone except her. Cody teaches her to finally live and to love. But is there something that he's not telling her?
I loved every single word of this story! It made me believe and then it shattered me in the end – and I wouldn’t have changed a thing…

About The Author -
I started writing contemporary romance two years ago. Before that, I didn’t think I could write a sex scene. Turns out I can!
My lucky number is 13 because I was born on the 13th and live near a haunted castle by the ocean. My number one past-time is watching hot surfers get changed into (and out of) their wetsuits.
My husband doesn’t read my books. My mother does.
Writing is my love, my hobby, my total addiction. All my characters are important to me and whisper their stories, even when I’ve finished writing their books. That’s why you’ll often find bonus chapters/out-takes from various books, because those voices just won’t be quiet.
