So basically, this book features bestfriends turned lovers trope, one I truly enjoy reading everytime. And for this one, the tension between Rain and Mark was thick and I loved the painfully slow-burn romance between them. Like honestly, I'd whack them in the head and force them to tell each other how they feel. HAHAHA! Like that flood scene, that was a perfect opportunity!!!
Rain's personality is realistic and very relatable. Yes, I could see myself in her, in reasons we don't want to delve into. While Mark is what you might call the epitome of being a gentleman, which was a little irritating at some point because he's too perfect that I wanted him to be spontaneous for JUST ONE TIME and actually tell what he feels. I still love him though.
Another thing I love about the book is the friendship between Rain, Meah, and Faith. It's super nice to have friends who got your back, plus the family relationships was cool to see as well. I think it's very Filipino, because we all tend to be family-oriented and be close to our cousins, and of course we have our titas in the background, being you know, titas. HAHAHA!
Overall, it's a great story. The plot may be simple but it was substantial. The main characters are developed, but I would love to have seen more character developments, although I think Ana's other novels are set in the same universe so I think I'll be seeing more of the side characters from this book. This book brings out the best kilig in you, I swear! It's such a delightful read and I totally recommend it!
I have always been a sucker for contemporary romances, especially about best friends falling for each other. Or when the other half seems to be stuck in the friend zone. Fall Like Rain got that interesting romantic vibe that made me smile and close my eyes just because I got flutters in my stomach while reading the story. I like it whenever I easily get pulled into the lives of the characters I am reading. Mark & Rain's chemistry sparkles and you can feel it all throughout the book. One thing is for sure, I always love a great love story and Ana Tejano's novel makes me really happy and content and hopelessly in love. Hoping to read more from her soon!
“Then it’s really time to let go.”
Fall Like Rain is Ana Tejano’s debut novel, a contemporary romance story about a girl who is in love with her best friend. We heard the same dilemma in books and movies before, but it’s a popular topic which I know a lot can relate to.
This is a short but very engaging read. I was busy lately so I said I’ll read just one chapter at a time. But I was always eager to know what happens next. Just like Rain, who kept on thinking what will happen next with her relationship with Mark. So I’d say another chapter more. And another.
With regards to the characters, I like Mark. He’s charming. Who wouldn’t fall in love with a friend like him? (Okay, maybe others won’t. Hehe!) Yet he should be more open with his feelings so that we don’t keep on guessing what he really feels. Just friends? Just nice? Leading on? So that we refrain from assuming. I also like the relationship between family and friends shown in the novel. I particularly like the scenes with Meah, Cams and Kuya Raymond. I don’t know but I didn’t like Lissa that much. (Or maybe I’m biased because she’s the third party? LOL) Also, I wasn’t that much convinced about the storyline regarding Francis. I’m not sure, like there was something lacking in his character, in what he said and did in the end.
But here’s what I really like. Rain. I read some reviews of people not liking Rain’s character that much. Because she’s timid, and an overthinker. But I like how Ana Tejano wrote her. Her thoughts and feelings were written in such a way that we could understand her and empathize with her. Her struggles, her confusion, the heartbreak. The pain when the one you love loves someone else. Assuming. Expecting. She is very real and relatable. Well, Rain and I actually have a few things in common. (Like placing keys on the top of the fridge. :P )
I really enjoyed reading this sweet and entertaining novella about family, friendship and love. So when Ana Tejano’s next novel is up, I will definitely read it too.
Another novella from our #romanceclass! If you want slow-burn romance about a girl in love with her best friend, then this book is for you! Other than the romance, I love the Filipino vibe that this book offered: the relationship of cousins, the way the kids treat their elders, the conservative actions of the characters... This is definitely a Filipino romance novella. I may have issues with Rain sometimes, but I guess that is how the author wrote her anyway, so I'm okay with it. The weird thing, though, was that I was rooting for someone else! :) She was just a very likeable character despite the treatment she got from Rain (again, I understand where Rain is coming from). It offers no surprises, but you'll still get curious at what will happen at the end of the story. :)
