Lo is a protector of her heart. Deciding to follow her dreams, she moves from her family ranch to Oregon to enroll in an art program. Ostracized by her father and brother, with a sporadically involved mother of convenience, Lo has built walls all around her. After one memorable night with a man she can't completely remember, he is all she can think about. After months of asking around, Lo has given up on finding him.

Lo's roommate Kenzie tips her off to a job nannying for a teenager trapped in a ten-year-old's body. With a mother who died when she was young, and Kash, a father who is a BMX racer, Mercedes pretty much rules the roost. Lo works hard to crumble down her defenses, and forms a bond with the spunky little diva. What Lo didn't expect was Kash's brother King. Trapped in a tug of war of emotions, King and Lo can't decide whether to love or hate each other. Will King finally be the one to chip away at the hardness surrounding Lo's heart?

Relatable characters, a heart-warming story, and a swoon-tastic lead male character, The Weight of Rain is a story that I would recommend to my reader friends. I loved the symbolism brought into the story with the rain. Being in a climate where it isn't always rainy, I wouldn't have made the connections to it that Dietz did. But she made it understandable, and changed the way that I see the rain. The next time it rains here, I'm sure I will think of King and Lo.

One of the other strengths of this story was the message about the various mediums that should be considered art forms. Dietz wove in drawing, photography, fashion design, and the unlikely BMX racing.

Mariah Dietz has once again blown me away with her incredible storytelling. The Weight of Rain was nothing short of addictive. Within seconds of diving into this book I was hooked, pulled into a world so full of raw emotion and genuine characters that I felt as if I belonged there. Lauren’s journey made me feel deeply and laugh loudly as I found myself easily enchanted by the colorful cast of characters who were so beautifully flawed and undeniably human. Mariah Dietz writes with a lyrical quality that made the story feel as if it was simply pouring off the pages, seeping into my skin until I was irrevocably part of the journey. Mariah’s exquisite writing continues to leave me in awe, demonstrating a maturity and mastery of language that seems to just keep getting better and better with each new novel.

One of the strongest parts of this story was the characters. Lauren was written with a voice that was definitive and unique, coming across so clearly in my head as I read her story. Her passion and personality were palpable entities throughout The Weight of Rain and that made this book such an incredible experience. Mariah Dietz created Lauren with a sense of honesty and genuine vulnerability that made her growth over the course of the novel seem monumental. Her evolution as a character is what the new adult genre is all about and my connection to her felt effortless. So as not to spoil Lauren’s discovery of her mystery man’s identity, I won’t use his name, but Mariah Dietz definitely knew what she was doing with him. He was charming and kind with an alpha edge that made him simply irresistible. Their immediate connection and undeniable chemistry made for some serious heat that had me grinning and furiously flipping pages for more of this unforgettable couple.

The Weight of Rain by Mariah Dietz
4 stars!!

“You’re so afraid to be in the spotlight, you just sit in everyone else’s shadow.”

Mariah Dietz is one of those authors that I “discovered” in the very beginning and I have read and devoured her books one by one. She is one of those authors that never fails to deliver and once again she has taken me on another emotional rollercoaster. While this one is not as emotional as her previous stories what this book does have is some great dialogue, great banter, BMX stunt riders, a really cute kid and some fantastic side characters that really made this book the complete package.

Lo was a quiet, studious woman. She had fought to be where she was and was determined to make it work. Having come from a family of ranchers she was expected to follow in the family footsteps, but Lo had an incredible talent and huge aspirations. She didn’t want to be a rancher; she wanted to be an artist. Her work was insanely amazing, but she was coy about it all, she couldn’t see just how good she was, her self-esteem and confidence were at an all-time low. Lo had such a huge heart though, but it had been trampled on by those that should have loved her, as you see her heart slowly start to beat again, you cannot help but champion her along. Her relationship with King’s niece was fantastic and these two really got under each-others skin, but in a good way…a much needed way.

“People who say that blood is thicker than friendship have never known what it’s like to have an a hole as a parent.”

Lo’s roommate drags her to a party, trying to get Lo to lighten up and enjoy herself rather than stay in her room painting or working.
