5.0 out of 5 stars fabulous debut novel 8 May 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I'm not really sure where to start my review of this book. It left me speechless and in floods of tears. I had so many feelings for this book from the very start. Taylor is such a sweet young girl and her life is disrupted when she finds out she is ill. I immediately felt drawn into Taylor's life as she was a really easy character to connect with. More than that really, it felt like she was a real person not a fictional one. There are many times I wish that fictional characters were real or that I as a fictional character in their world. This time, I wanted to be there as moral support for her. Thankfully, she had Kyle to lean on. *fans self* Sorry but Kyle is hot!!
Taylor is an ordinary girl with an ordinary life. She has a hot boyfriend, Austin. She has great friends and goes to school like everyone else. Normal, right?! Well, all that changed when she found out about her illness. She felt sucker punched and her world turned upside down and inside out. Thankfully, she has amazing parents who support her unconditionally and she has a wonderful best friend by her side. Shame her boyfriend is a moron (this was not my word of choice).
When Taylor meets Kyle, she feels a connection that she can't deny, nor explain. They are like kindred spirits. He's kind, supportive, gentle but strong, all the things a boyfriend should be. But that's the problem, he's not her boyfriend and she is with Austin, so nothing can happen between them. This doesn't stop her thoughts wandering to Kyle frequently though.
We follow Taylor's life as she deals with this illness, her warring feelings for Kyle and various ups and downs. She is such a strong girl and yet she doesn't see it. You get to experience what she feels throughout it all and I was so sucked in that I felt like it had all happened to me.

The way Rain is written is a sheer delight because it is easy to fall into and hard to come back out of – this is the kind of book I love. As I said in the beginning, it made me feel so much and I love it when a book touches me in the way Rain did.
I hope you’ll take a chance on this superb debut novel by Christie Cote. She has an amazing talent for writing and you will fall in love with her characters because they are so tangible and real.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing 8 May 2014
By Paige(ElectivelyPaige) - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Actual Rating is 4.5 of 5 Stars--Originally posted on Electively Paige

Can I just start by saying oh my goodness? Is that allowed? Round these parts in the bloggersphere I'm sort of in charge(who gave me that power, I'll never know) so I'm going to say it is.
I say this a lot, but I really truly mean it this time, based on the synopsis I had no idea what to expect. Nada. Zilch. Not a clue. Something compelled me to want to read it though, that fateful day I was browsing Facebook and there was an author looking for some bloggers for her book cover reveal. "Hmm... That's nice." I thought. Cover reveals are such fun. Then I started to scroll past and then *light bulb* it hit me that, hello, I'm a blogger. So, I commented on her status and the rest is pretty much history. After learning a bit more about the book, I knew I absolutely had to read it, no question. So, after that story that y'all probably don't care about I have to say that I am so beyond happy that I did.

I'm going to assume that because the synopsis is vague the fab Christie Cote wants to keep the major plot points hush, hush so I won't go into too much detail but I have to say that based on the few little quotes here and there I was able to see along the way before I read Rain that it is so much more than I thought it was going to be. This book is amazing. Just amazing. The characters are perfect in the way that they are absolutely imperfect which, you know, to me makes them perfect. I think I said perfect enough in that one sentence, don't you? This book instantly became a new favorite for me, and I cannot recommend it enough. Taylor, Kyle and everyone else were just instantly a part of me. I will take the characters in this book with me wherever I go. To me, that's something pretty special when a book just worms its way into your heart and takes root there. So, yes, Rain wasn't what I was expecting. But, what's the fun in reading if it doesn't throw you a few curve balls? From what I understand there are two more books planned and they are most definitely going on my to be read list, and I so hope you add Rain to yours. If you love amazing YA fiction, you will not be disappointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant! 5 May 2014
By Ashley Dombrowik - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I absolutely loved this book! I’m the type of person that not a lot of books catch my attention, but this one did! I was able to get into it right away! Usually it takes me months to finish a book, even if it’s a good one. But this book I finished in 2 weeks! It was an easy read, chapters were short, and everything was easy to understand. The book is fiction, but once you read it, you feel like it could be a reality to somebody out there which is why I was able to picture myself as the main character. If you like romance and any books by Nicholas Sparks, you will love this! Honestly this book is better than some of his I have read. I Highly recommend this book!

I received a copy from the author in exchange to write a review hence why I was able to finish the book early. I hope everyone is able to enjoy it just as much as I did!

4.0 out of 5 stars Solid debut novel for Christie Cote 11 Aug. 2014
By Melanie WLIBBB - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
Melanie's 3.5 Star Review:

I am a true believer that people come into our lives at the right time for a reason. In Rain by Christie Cote, Kyle comes into Taylor’s life just when she needs him most.

What defined this book for me was how unique Kyle and Taylor’s relationship developed. While most books introduce the tragedy behind the story towards the latter of the book, Christie delivers the bad news well ahead of the game and from there develops a once in a lifetime love between the protagonists. I was impressed with how well detailed her writing was and how it really highlighted every scene. I could picture everything she was expressing in every page. Though I loved these details, it always didn’t flow leaving it mechanical at times.

It can’t be denied that Kyle’s character had undeniable charisma and a definite swoon worthy book boyfriend. Christie did a great job with his character; taking him from a complete stranger to someone you couldn’t picture the story without. The female protagonist in this book is Taylor. I couldn’t imagine how difficult it was for the author to have written her character. Taylor’s journey is not easy; it is the complete opposite in fact. I truly felt the sadness and the struggle she’s taken on. I didn’t however care for the obvious environmental stance. It’s not so much of where she stood but rather, I felt it was a bit inappropriate for a YA romance. That sort of threw me for a loop.

I did love Liz, Taylor’s best friend. I thought she was a great secondary character. She added color and fun into this book. I do hope to see much more of her in the future.

I thought this was a solid debut novel for Christie Cote and do recommend this to those who love a good YA story.

5.0 out of 5 stars Don't ever be scared to dance in the rain! 23 July 2014
By Tiffany Williams - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
"It's funny how one life-changing event could make you forget what happiness felt like."

What would you do if you received life-changing information? Would you accept it and move forward? Would you cry and shut the world out? For Taylor Sullivan, these questions were going through her mind the day she heard the word "leukemia". She was weeks away from turning 16. She had a full life ahead of her. She was happy. She had great parents, an awesome best friend and a good boyfriend. How could this happen?

The day after she found out her diagnosis, she met the one person that would change her world forever. Who knew that just sitting on a curb in front of a stranger house would make your day a little brighter? Taylor didn't know Kyle, so it made it easy for her to open up and talk to him. She couldn't even tell her best friend or boyfriend about her news. He felt safe and he didn't treat her like she was fragile. He gave her a little ray of sunshine in her clouded world.

"There were kind, generous souls out there; it seemed rare to find-especially in guys my age."

After letting everyone close to her know, Taylor decides to jump right into treatment. The quicker they start, the quicker results will happen.

"It was in my body, not a monster in the closet. No matter where I was or how long I kept my eyes shut, it would still be there, killing me until I got the treatment to kill it first."

With all the sick days, the medicine and the hair loss, there was one person that made each of days better...Kyle. He was there through it all with her. He became her saving grace. He was everything she never knew she needed.

"Sometimes in my darkness I found dreams where I wasn't sick, I had my hair and Kyle didn't want to be just my friend."

Kyle, oh Kyle. I loved that boy! He's mysterious, but yet, you feel his love for Taylor. Who wouldn't love a guy that would stick by you through the worst possible moments of your life? Their relationship is just beautiful. For them being so young, they had to grow up so much in a matter on months. He needed her as much as she needed him.

This book had funny moments, 'awww' moments and beautifully heartbreaking moments. I couldn't get enough of the pink highlights, iPod shuffles and lego houses.

I recommend this book to everyone! Christie did a beautiful job with her first book! This is the first in a three part series, but it does not leave you with a cliffhanger. You are left feeling satisfied with the ending:). I see great things for this new author!! Remember the name Christie Cote! She's going places:)

"I can't stop from dying when that time comes, just like I can't stop the rain from falling, but I can live today with what makes me happy."
