She had braved the storm and knew she would be okay in the rain. Until he offered her an umbrella and showed her life could be so better than ‘okay’. Laila was once in love; it left her hurt and grieving, but also stronger. She never looked back. And why should she? She is happy – and busy, with a popular bakery franchise that could go national if she pulls off that big deal. Between a job she loves and friends who support and value her, Laila thinks she has it all. Until one fateful meeting rouses familiar passions that call for all of her courage to pursue. She should have nothing to do with JD, an impetuous, free-spirited creature stirring up her calm existence. Yet, they find themselves irrepressibly drawn to each other. But can Laila trust him? He is, after all, her exact opposite. If she’s self-destructive, he’s life-affirming. The more she gets to know him, the more she wants to, but the demons from her past still haunt her present, holding her back. But here’s the thing: he makes her feel things she never knew she was missing. Every Time It Rains is the story of every girl who has ever had her heart broken. And been brave enough to love again.
