Lennon's Rain Tour Stop!!

Sometimes in love, you choose wrong…

Eight years ago, Lennon lost his heart to Rain, and suddenly she’s back, all grown up and sexy as hell. At a sorority party, he convinces himself that outbidding every other guy for a body shot from Rain is for charity. But he knows better. He doesn’t want any guy, except him, tarnishing the memory of the little girl he proposed to in fifth grade.

Jinx loves Lennon and is past ready for him to make his move. With his sexual prowess, she worries why he hasn’t made any advances. She fears she is losing him, and the only way to keep him is to overcome her past and give him what he desires.

Rain knows Lennon is trouble. If she couldn’t say no to the gangly boy asking her to skateboard off some roof, how will she refuse Lennon’s seductive powers now that he is a man? Rain has many reasons to resist his charm. He has a girlfriend, he’s moving to LA with her, and Rain has no intention to march in the long parade of Lennon Tyler conquests.

Now, Lennon must choose. Someone has to lose, and that person could be him.

I am not a huge fan of the love triangle.  It’s too much for me, I can’t take the uncertainty and I usually have a firm side for which I cheer.  This was not your classic love triangle tale, at all! 
Lennon fell in love with Rain when he was in the 5th grade.  He even proposed to her on the playground.  Then, she and her family kind of disappeared and Lennon was crushed.  Fast forward to the present day where Lennon is with Jinx, and together their band is going places.  He’s been through some pretty major life changes with Jinx and his family and then out of the blue at a party, he sees Rain again.  And all of those feelings come flooding back.  How will it end up?!?!?!
I just could not pick a side in this one.  I liked both Rain and Jinx, and I understood Lennon’s dilemma.  And Lennon, even while deeply entrenched in some pretty heavy things and in the midst of a love triangle still manages to be endearing.  He’s not an angel, but he’s a good book boyfriend.
This is a fast-paced and sexy read.  It had great characters and kept me involved.  I just have to find out who he ends up with!!!  My only complaint of the story is that there are some details that are a bit repetitive.  I’m not really sure why this is included in the story, I guess just to remind readers of little facts here and there, but I found it distracting nonetheless.  Overall, it was a good NA story and I can’t wait to get my hands on the next book!  4 stars.
