Spotlight and Review of Rapid Fall by Adiana Ray

Rapid Fall

by Adiana Ray

The Blurb
  Sonia and JD’s tempestuous attraction is as stormy as the rapids at Rishikesh. Not even a dip in icy waters can douse the sparks that fly when they are around each other.

JD’s recent divorce, however, has left him commitment phobic and bitter, and he doesn’t seem to want more than a physical relationship. At heart, Sonia is conservative; can she bring herself to accept a modern ‘live-in’ relationship, or will she push him away with her demands for a commitment?

My Review

Rapid Fall is a story of two characters namely Sonia and JD, who happen to fall in love, but admit it after some hesitation. The story revolves around how they meet, depart and then meet again for a happily ever after. There are no but's and if's and not much of a climax except for a commitment issue from JD who has not yet been able to come to terms with his previous relationship, thus the phobia or the aversion.

The main characters could have been dissected further to give the reader a clear understanding of their desires. Sonia's abrupt crying on JD's shoulder was a bit difficult to digest especially since she is the HR of her department, and that is her job, and then why the overwhelming shriek. The Author could have gone a little deep in that matter to gain some sympathy from the reader for the character.
Also being able to strike a balance in the character of JD was needed. 

The book is a quick read giving the reader a short glimpse into the thrill of the swirling waters, and the adventure along that edge can be exhilarating to the soul. Thus, recommending it to the audience who would love a neat love story!

The Author's Thoughts

'Sixteen and counting' are the number of cities that I have lived in so far. I like to think of myself as a 'Metronaut'. The myriad city cultures, the food, the hustle and bustle, the people are all elements of life that I thrive on and if you can have an 'Astronaut' why not a 'Metronaut' after all there are so many more of us out there?
I believe in the Zen tenet that every situation has a 1000 truths. It helps me write and it definitely helps when I am dealing with my two children. I like reading, I like cooking, I like travelling and I love sitting like a mindless zombie in front of the TV and if anybody says anything to that....Aha! a 1000 truths come in very handy.
I also write under a pen name M.X Steele. Why? My daughter thought Adiana Ray was too boring a name.
I do hope you enjoy reading all my work because I believe passionately that though we writers love pontificating and are totally in love with whatever we write; at the end of it all it is the readers that matter and above all what we write has to be 'entertaining'.
