Josh Ackley vows to wait until it rains to kiss Mackenzie Roads.
As Mackenzie Roads approached the end of her high school years, she gave little thought to the idea of dating. A native of Puyallup, Washington, Mackenzie wanted to spend her senior year with her friends: Bree Thatcher, her closest friend from a broken family; Asia Blake, a mouthy black girl from Louisiana never at a loss for words; and Rachel Evans, whose recent behavior has been putting a strain upon the circle of friends.
Everything changes for Mackenzie when she meets A.J, a nineteen-year-old aspiring bull rider. Drawn in by his simple country lifestyle, shaggy blonde hair and witty sense of humor, Mackenzie finds herself torn between her plans to attend college, and maintain the blossoming relationship.
In an era of teenage pregnancies and half-hearted romances, A.J pledges to fulfill Mackenzie’s oldest fantasy: to have their first kiss be in the rain!
Waiting for the Rain is a story about teenage dreams and the reality of adulthood, resisting temptation, and overcoming adversity through the bonds of friendship.
