Blog Tour - The Rain Trilogy By Karen Anne Stewart

Rain Trilogy Karen-Anne Stewart
Genres: Contemporary, New Adult, Romance

Synopsis book 1:
Raina has tried to forget her past, forget the pain, but when she finds herself staring straight into the fury blazing in her ex-boyfriend's eyes, her dark past comes rushing back. Furious with herself for actually having chosen someone like her father, she uses that anger to her advantage and fights for her life...and for her future that she prays will involve the man she can't seem to get out of her head. Kas is a natural leader, a fierce  fighter, the type of man you send in when you need to get the job done. He is a courageous hero who is used to risking his own life to save others, but can he save the one who has captured his heart from her horrific past and the men who are hell-bent on destroying her? As Kas and Raina try to navigate through the twists and turns of a deviously intelligent human trafficking group, they find solace in each other's arms. Can they infiltrate the trafficker's tight ring, saving the innocent lives from imminent danger before it's too late?
My Review 

I loved this book. 

We meet Rain and Kas both working for the FBI, kas permanently Rain on a temporary basis.  Kas and his friend  Chase - a physiologist, were put on Rains case, after her ex boyfriend tried to harm her, plus what she's suffered at the hands of her father. 

but Rain and Kas are attracted to each other. After Rain comes out of hospital she goes to stay with Kas. 

This book pulls you in and makes you read until the end. It constantly leaving you wondering who is behind the bad guys. It has lots going on in the story but it works. It flows beautifully. 

Synopsis book 2:
Shattered when Raina runs after his marriage proposal, Kas is hell-bent to find her and bring her home, where she belongs. He will bend every law necessary to do so, willing to do anything to protect Raina from her demons and the men who haunt her, going as far as placing his career and life on the line to save hers. Raina will give up everything she has worked so hard to achieve, even flee the country to keep Kas from the wrath and powerful reach of her abusive father.
In the midst of the FBI team closing in on the Ghost, another ghost from Raina's past taunts her, promising that she will be his. Meanwhile, a different trafficking ring is gaining strength in New Jersey. Michael solicits Raina's help, needing her smooth, sultry voice to win the audition for the new singer in the ring leader's swanky night club. Raina knows her life is in jeopardy with the dangers of being undercover, but she is blindsided when she discovers that it's her heart that is threatened with a mortal blow. 

Raina tries to heal from the nightmares of her dark past as the grisly bodies of innocent victims surface when the team gets closer to discovering the identity of the man responsible for the infuriatingly clever and powerful slavery ring. When Raina finally comes face to face with the Ghost, he quickly engulfs her in a twisted game of cat and mouse, delivering a veiled threat as he slips through her fingers. As the ghosts of her past and present ensnare her in their deadly web, Raina realizes the danger has just begun.

My Review 

This book is just as good as Saving Rain. Rain flees after Kas' proposal so kas goes after her to bring her back. When the arrival of the ghost steps up you are literary glue to the book. 

This book has plenty of angst, suspense. I would scream and shout and feel like the whole drama of the book was going to be my undoing. I don't know how much to tell you with out giving anything away. This book is that good. 

The subject of Human Trafficking is told amazingly by Karen. This book pulls you in and you cant help but become a bystander.

Synopsis book 3:
Finally able to put her harrowing past to rest, Raina looks forward to her future with Kas, but the Ghost has other plans. As the FBI team gets closer to taking down the largest human trafficking ring in the modern world, the Ghost begins a wicked game, making Raina the pawn and the target. Never before encountering a worthy adversary, he's fascinated by Raina and is enjoying the refreshing challenge of her intellect.
The danger ignites to a blazing new level, and Kas struggles between the need to finally exorcise the Ghost and his need to protect his wife. Tension mounts as an internal battle wages, tormenting Kas as he watches Raina put her all into taking down the man responsible for horrific sex slavery and gruesome deaths. When a new player takes control, Jefferson orders the end of the Ghost's game with Raina, which results in one final, devastating act, leaving Kas desperate and willing to do whatever it takes to save whatever means necessary.

My Review 

OK, so the final book, what can I tell you...... not much again without giving anything away. 

What I will say is this. There are quite a few surprises in this book, good and bad, a few laugh out loud moments - make sure you don't read this in public. A few OMG moments, nail biting moments. 

These books are beautifully written. These are the kind of books that when you get to the end you are like WOW. The whole subject throughout about sex slaves and human trafficking is handle with care and makes you sit up and think. 
The characters are beautifully written, some bad, mostly good. The Bad ones are written perfectly, the good ones you root for. I like Rain's character despite what she's gone through she always comes out fighting and Karen captures Rain perfectly. I love Kas.. what's there not to love. I love his and Rains relationship. 

You really need to get these books they are by far amazing. 

I received an Arc copy of these books in exchange for an honest review. 

These books get 5/5 stars and 5/5 for movie moments.
