Book Description

Paige’s father has Alzheimers, and her fiancé is shot and killed in an armed robbery. Paige fights her depression and pulls herself out of the dark place that she has succumbed to, with monumental effort and a new-found determination to live her life to the fullest, doing things that both terrify and exhilarate her.

When Paige meets Adam, the attraction is instantaneous. Adam grew up in an orphanage and has no recollection of his life before the age of six. Paige falls head over heels in love and embraces a happiness she never dreamed possible. Until the day she finds Adam in bed with another woman.

Wanting nothing more to do with him, Paige cuts Adam out of her life, until she receives a mysterious visitor, who reveals secrets about Adam's past that shock Paige to her very core.

Determined to fight for the man that she loves, Paige finds herself on a journey that will change her life forever.

3.0 out of 5 stars Slow start.... unexpected ending... July 1, 2014
By JK
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The book has a very slow start & at some points, drags on and on and on. I almost gave up but I'm glad I didn't. The ending drained me emotionally. You will need a whole pack of Kleenex. I know I did. Those last chapters had me doing the "ugly cry" in my bed for the terrible, terrible loss. This book could easily have been 5 stars but I took away the points because of the extremely slow start & the way the story drags along the way. Also certain aspects of the narration about the disorder that Adam/ Simon suffers from didn't really seem plausible. I may not have experience nor knowledge but even to me, it seemed too simplistic. I would have loved a more realistic explanation of possible treatments. It is after all a very real disease & something we can all learn from.

5.0 out of 5 stars My New Favorite Book!! October 10, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
If I can figure out the ending about 50 pages into a book, I am not very interested in finishing it. This book was sad, happy, confusing, tested the limits of reality, had likable characters .... etc., etc. And, it kept me guessing until the very end. Loved it!!

★✩★✩★ 5- Gut wrenching, Rip your heart out -Stars ★✩★✩★
~spoiler free review~

I loved Kevin, I did, but what I feel for Adam is so much more than that. It's as if he is the air that I breathe. When he isn't around I feel almost dizzy like I can't breath properly and I know he feels exactly the same.

This is possibly going to be one of my shortest reviews ever. Not because I didn't like the book (HELLO 5 Stars!), but because it's really best if you go into this completely blind to truly appreciate and feel what Paige goes through-it was quite powerful. So I'm gonna give a very brief overview then leave you with my thoughts.
~Paige has suffered more loss in her young life than most can deal with and it almost destroys her- she is forced to witness her father succumbing to Alzheimer's and loses her fiancé to an armed robbery. The depression almost takes her under, but she fights her way back and vows to live her life every day to it's fullest. When she meets Adam, the attraction is instantaneous and overwhelming and it's doesn't take her long to fall for him. Adam grew up in an orphanage and has no recollection of his life prior to the age of six, he has worked hard to get where he is today and he is the first man since her fiancé Kevin was ripped away from her to make her feel like she is not alone. She can't remember ever being happier.... til she walks in on Adam in bed with another woman. Devastated, she cuts him out of her life immediately, but when a stranger shows up at her door revealing secrets of Adam's past, Paige is faced with some very difficult decisions. Knowing what she knows now- how hard is she willing to fight, and what will she endure for the man she loves?

I need someone to hold me.

4.0 out of 5 stars Rainfall December 6, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
I really struggled with how to rate this book. I was left uncomfortable most of the time, I was finding myself all over the map with emotions but the bottom line that convinced me to give it a four was the pure guts and brilliance of this author. She took the topic of DID (Dissociative Identity Disorder) and made it not only understandable to the reader, but created a story that could help the reader empathize with Adam and Paige.

I can’t give you more details because if you don’t know what DID is, I won’t be able to explain it in this review and if you do understand that disorder, you will be able to predict the story by my slight description. I will say that Paige is a very positive and strong female character who I found myself admiring through the book. She has faced many challenges in her life, her parents’ divorce; her mother’s marrying Frank. Her father has Alzheimer’s and she fell in love with a man and was planning on marrying him until one fateful night he was killed. Still with all of this she never became bitter, she enjoyed playing in the rain and being happy. Her life revolved around taking risk and living, not hiding in the shadow of pain and depression. Then the event that will show her what she is really made of happen, she met Adam.

Adam comes from a background of the unknown. Not remembering his life before being in an orphanage he tries to find the good in people and in life. He falls for Paige as quickly as she falls for him and they begin to plan a life with each other until things starts happening. This is where Paige’s courage and faith in Adam and his determination to do what it will take to get better begins. We are introduced to new characters and the story starts to unravel.

4.0 out of 5 stars Hurts so good! November 27, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
“The universe is cruel. Life is not fair. Our ability to feel and to love is our weakness; this is what it means to be human.”

Rainfall is one of those books that hurts. It's heartbreaking and completely surprising. I really didn't know what to expect when I started reading it. The events that occurred in the story left me speechless with my mouth hanging open and 24 hours after finishing it, I still find myself obsessing and trying to get over this book hangover! I'm not going to be able to summarize the plot in this review because I owe it to you to not give away the shocking details of this book. You just have to read it!

This book is a lot of things. Its a love story, its a psychological mind-bender, in some ways its a tragedy, and in other ways its a story about growing and moving forward despite all obstacles. I never base my ratings on how a book ends. It could be a HEA or a complete heartbreak ending but as long as the book draws emotion out of me and I feel connected to the characters, I will give the book my well-deserved praise. Rainfall made me want to turn the pages. As soon as I started it I couldn't stop. Paige and Adam's story is completely unique and unlike anything I've ever read before. There love was all consuming and completely overwhelming at times. It made Paige's fight for her true love that much more agonizing when you find out Adam's secret...

One of the only critiques I have is about the writing. It's not the best I've ever read, but Melissa Delport kept the story moving. That is probably the only reason I didn't give this book 5 stars. Some of the events felt rushed to me and the characters probably could have been a little more developed in the beginning.
