I loved love. Some might
even say I was obsessed with it. I was the girl who had a fake wedding when I
was six and subscribed to bridal magazines by sixteen. My happily ever was all
I thought about.
So the fact that I had a
crush on my brother’s best friend--a guy who notoriously doesn’t do
relationships--was heartbreak in the making. I was forced to do the only thing
I could--ignore my feelings and move on.
Years later, after
countless failed relationships, my shy heart had slowly stepped away from
its fanciful ideas of love. It was going smoothly until the guy who didn’t
do relationships suddenly wanted to try having one…with me. It didn’t take
long before I gave in. He was exactly how I imagined, and everything I'd
dreamed about: goofy, smart, good with animals, and kind.
Still, my past break-ups
were never far from my mind. I'd always crushed hard and fell fast,
and no one ever caught me. But the more time we spent together, the more I
started to see a future with him. And what’s shocking was that he saw the same
thing as me.
The Weight of Rain (The Weight of Rain #1) by Mariah Dietz One night changed my life—one that I barely remember. When I close my eyes, my mind paints a picture of his smile and shades the contours of his hands, the deep scar around his bicep. I'm an artist, yet my hands are unsteady. With his presence, he has unknowingly broken that something inside of me that makes me who I am. Being around him is like standing in a rainstorm. First the drops tickle my skin, and then they coat me, refusing to be ignored. Finally, they soak into me, reaching parts of me I don’t think anyone has ever touched. When dreams turn into reality, will the picture in my mind transfer to paper?
I really enjoyed The Weight of Rain. It is the first book I have read by Mariah Dietz and I can not wait to read book two. I loved all of the characters and found the story to be fun. I love the way Mariah writes. I did find it a little predictable that King was the man that Lo slept with, but it was a nice predictable.
Forever & Always (The Ever Trilogy #1)
Book 1 in trilogy.
I really don't even know where to begin... What a freaking roller coaster. I think I felt every kind of emotion and then some. This story begins at a summer camp and ends in a wft moment. How can you just leave me hanging like this and end a story so abruptly. Ugh!
Caden and Ever's love story is one that kind of nauseating. I am all for true love and I felt their connection, but there were a few moments I was like please stop. Tragedy after tragedy after tragedy is what brought these two together. Let's see how this love story is going to end.
Is there anything that Beth Flynn writes that is mediocre? Not in my opinion. She is amazing and it shows here in the spin off of the Nine Minutes Trilogy. I did not think I could fall in love with another biker after meeting Grizz, but I was sadly mistaken. Anthony grabbed my heart from the moment he laid eyes on Christy. And watching their story unfold was more than I expected. Beth writes in a way that grabs your attention and never lets go.
