“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. Lo meets a guy, she has had a few drinks, but she is in control and she sleeps with him, totally out of character. This guy spoke to her, called out to her, she couldn’t resist and it was such an alien feeling that she had to explore it. They exchanged numbers…he lost his phone and his number rubbed off her hand. After months of trying to find out the identity of the other fate has other ideas, their paths cross once again.
“I wish I wasn’t falling for this a hole. I wish he’d fall for me.”
I’m not going to say any more as you need to read it for yourself, but after months of thinking the other didn’t care it was always going to be tricky. Mariah Dietz always brings these characters to life as if they were your friends and family, not only do you get a story but you get a life. Her books are more about emotional connections, thoughts and feelings rather than just the sex. She always manages to instil her characters into your heart and they take such a tight grip that you just don’t want to let them go.
“Conveniences build pain and resentment. Love is only made to bend so far.”
King was adorable, he had his bad boy persona but underneath he was teddy bear. He too had never felt a connection like he had that night; he had a hard time believing that Lo never made contact again. His pride is wounded; his machismo dented, but once they set eyes on each other again, that night just comes back into sharp, vivid focus in all its technicolour glory. Of course we have the angst and the misunderstandings, no book would be complete without but when this man loves, he loves hard and his relationship with his niece was adorable and only makes you love him all the more.
I was totally immersed into the world of the Knight’s, BMXing is not a sport that is commonly featured and I thought that this was a great diversion away from the emotional side and really balanced this book out. As I said above the dialogue was fantastic and really brought these characters to life. Dialogue can either make or break a book and it definitely made this one. Once again, another fab read from Mariah Dietz and I’m hoping that some of the other characters in this book get their own story too, you never know, hopefully this won’t be the last I see of this family.
As I started reading the book I knew I wouldn’t be able to stop reading it until I was done. And that’s what I did. The story was so intriguing and interesting from the very start, it grabs you and it doesn’t let go until you’re done.
There are certain books in which the angst is too much, that you need to stop reading, take a break and then continue; and then there’s the other kind of stories that keep you glued to the pages until you’re done, until you’ve read all of the pages, and The Weight of Rain is one of those.
The characters, the plot, the storyline, everything put together is a masterpiece. A piece of art. It takes you on a ride full of emotions. And you get to know the history of some of the characters and how that’s made them who they are.
Starting with Lauren, better known as Lo, the main character, she is amazing. She moved from a little town, away from her family, to the place where she could be herself and study whatever she wanted to. She has a big heart, and doesn’t let her past define her. Although as a human, she makes mistakes sometimes, she is able to recognize them and fix them. She is so smart, funny and talented and she isn’t aware of that, she is full of dreams and aspirations and she isn’t afraid of pursuing them. She is a really awesome character and it’s impossible not to love her.
And King, omg King,I cannot describe how much I love him. He is so sweet and funny, although sometimes he got this bad boy façade because he was trying to pretend that Lo didn’t affected him at all. He is lovable. He breathes passion and is always worried about the others. He is smart and strong, kind and compassionate. And such a good person. And but the way, he says the best things.
I loved getting immersed into the Knight’s world, I was totally surprised by this family. And their friends. They all have incredible passion for what they do, and they are good people. Always trying to do the best for others, and protecting them. You get to experience their dreams and their fears.
The Weight of Rain has an amazing plot. It’s so interesting to discover facts about Lo, King, Kash, Summer, Charleigh, Allie, Mercedes, Parker, and even Kenzie.I was totally shocked when I discovered some of their secrets.
This book teaches you about how important is to not anyone else define who you are but you. You can make a choice whether what other people says about you makes an impact on you or it doesn’t. It gives you a lesson on how to be brave, and kind. About following your dreams no matter what, about making mistakes and not to be afraid of making them. To learn how to take responsibility for your actions and also, to be a good person in general. And also, it teaches about how important it is to fight for what you want.
The Knight family has a special place in my heart. As well as Charleigh and Allie. And Lauren of course.This story needs to be read because you’ll get to know how Lo and King’s love story started, and how they overcame every obstacle they found in their way. I love them so much, and I hope you do too.
