Rain De Castro has been in love with her best friend, Mark Velasco, for almost the entire time she has known him, but she’s clearly in the friend zone because he’s happily in a relationship. Or so she thought, until the news of his break-up reaches her.
Now that Mark’s single again, she decides that it’s time to get out of the zone. But when her cousin Lissa comes into the picture and sets her eyes on Mark, Rain feels troubled when he gets a little too friendly with her. Rain is determined to fight for what she feels this time, but is it worth the effort if it’s a losing battle from the start? Will she back off to give way for her best friend’s happiness, even if it means losing him to someone else again?
It seems like Rain has always been in love with her best friend Mark. But it seems like Mark is oblivious to her affections. So she accepts the fact that she’ll always be on the friend zone in their relationship. Especially when she thinks Mark’s now interested with her cousin Lissa. How much more pain can a broken heart take? Don’t ask Rain coz she might just break down.
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. Outside my room, the rain is beating down the roofs and interestingly, this scene lets me imagine Mark and Rain under the rain and I can’t help but snuggle through my bed-sheets and pillows. Ahh, a perfect rainy afternoon read, indeed!
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!
Ana Tejano has been in love with words and writing ever since she met Elizabeth Wakefield when she was in Grade 3. She has contributed several non-fiction pieces in print and online publications, and has been blogging for years. When she’s not writing, she works as a marketing lead for a multinational company by day, manages a book club, and serves in her church community in every other time that she doesn’t spend reading or sleeping. She lives in Metro Manila and is also known by another name in her other circles (but it’s not a secret identity, really).
