Blog Tour: The Effects of Falling by Mariah Dietz

Title: The Effects of Falling
Series: The Weight of Rain Duet #2
Author: Mariah Dietz
Release Date: Aug 2, 2016
I have loved my best friend for eleven years.

Eleven years of celebrations.
Eleven years of victories and losses.
Eleven years of inside jokes and shared smiles.
Eleven years of helping him raise his daughter as a single father.

He smiles at me and my world brightens.
He ignores me and I forget how to function.
He holds my hand and takes more of my heart.
He leaves and time stops.

We have both lost too much, but am I willing to risk the effects of falling again?

Yes! Yes! Yes! I absolutely loved this book! I adored the first book of
 the series, The Weight of Rain, but this book just hit that sweet spot for me.

This is Summer and Kash's story. More, it is Summer's story of discovering herself and coming to terms with who she is since her BMX dreams are dashed. She and Kash have been friends for eleven years. She's been in love with him for the same amount of time. She helped raise his daughter, supported his career, and always stuck by his side. She finally has enough of being on the sidelines.

Kash is also in love with Summer. He is just too scared to admit it because of his past. When Summer starts pulling away (to discover herself), he lets her. He starts pulling away himself. But the two just aren't complete without the other and there is quite a bit of pushing and pulling on both sides.

The emotions in this book poured straight into my heart. Every single one became my own. The characters are so real and imperfect, but so right. There is a great balance of emotions and wittiness in this book. I laughed. I cried. I loved every single second of this book!

The Weight of Rain (#1) – Released Oct 27, 2015
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?
