"I want to remember this moment forever. Even if forever is only for tonight."
“Our job … is to say fuck ’em and survive anyway. That’s it, Rain. That’s our only job."
"How are you gonna survive something if you don’t even know what it is?”
I’ve finally found what I’ve been missing my whole life, and if I keep it, it will kill me.
No wonder Rain was wearing a black hoodie when I met her.
She’s the fifth fucking horseman of the apocalypse.
Rain presses up onto her toes at the same moment that I dive for her parted lips, and our mouths collide like the train wreck that we are.

“The way I see it, if I can survive the fucking apocalypse, then it makes everything I’ve been through mean something, you know? Like, instead of breaking me ... they made me unbreakable.”
Love and survival are mutually exclusive in my world.Lots to recommend here, especially if you're into apocalypses.... or is it apocalypti? Just kidding! It was good.
She's a mess and a mindfuck, but when she smiles, it steals the air from my lungs.And both main characters were well-done. Wes . . .
My looks and my resourcefulness are the only tools I've been given in this life.. . . was abrasive and self-involved, yet vulnerable . . .
Her words pierce my heart like daggers, the pain more intense than my bullet wound or my soot-stained lungs.Rain . . .
I'm an expert at not talking about shit.. . . was holding herself together by a thread by the time she meets Wes.
Underneath all those fake smiles and that sassy attitude is a black ocean of sadness crashing against a crumbling lighthouse of hope.They went together like peanut butter and jam, lol. They had great chemistry.
I'm attracted to the boy in him and scared of the man in him, and I'm pretty sure I'd take a bullet for both of them even though I don't even know their last name.But that last quote is the reason why I can't give this one 5 stars. While I appreciate a fast-paced plot, this reeked of insta-love . . . though, who knows just how charged emotions can become in the face of imminent death?
I’m attracted to the boy in him and scared of the man in him, and I’m pretty sure I’d take a bullet for both of them even though I don’t even know their last name.
“What could you possibly prioritize over surviving?” Rain asks, becoming eye-level with me as she steps onto the first rung of the tree-house ladder.
