It Rained All Night

It Rained All Night: More Countdown

The countdown to It Rained All Night continues. Are you having fun so far? 🙂

It Rained All Night is an opposites attract story, something I find very entertaining to read, but in my real life, I would never even consider an opposites attract kind of relationship. Maybe if we’re talking surface-level differences, but when it comes to the fundamentals, the important stuff, we have to be on the same page. I’ve never understood the Democrate-married-to-a-Republican kind of relationships; how can you live together when you have such opposing world views? It’s interesting, but wouldn’t work for me 🙂

But to be fair, Henrik and Mikko’s differences are only superficial. Where it really counts, they’re on the same page.

It Rained All Night: Mikko wears his heart on his sleeve while Henrik was brought up to never show his emotions.

That was until Mikko came into my life that afternoon in the rain.

He was special from the beginning. His openness, his happiness. How on the surface, he’s the complete opposite of me; him being the typical yoga hippie type, serene and free-spirited, with blond dreads and comfortable clothes, while I’m the cross between nobility and a successful businessman in buttoned-up sleek suits and perfectly groomed hair. We shouldn’t get along so well, but we do.

Quote from It Rained All Night


JMS Books

Today’s song is by Eurythmics, and the lovely Annie Lennox is one of my girl crushes. She’s like a fine wine and only grows even more lovely as she ages. *insert heart-eye emoji here* 😀

A lovely live version of Here Comes the Rain Again by Eurythmics

Here comes the rain again
Raining in my head like a tragedy
Tearing me apart like a new emotion 

I’ll be back tomorrow with a new snippet and a classic rain-themed song! At least, it’s classic for me 🙂


Can a chance meeting in the rain change someone’s life? 

Meeting someone who can make him stop going is an eye-opener for Henrik. The man, Mikko, is his complete opposite, a steady rock in the wild rainstorm that is Henrik’s life, but the connection between them is both unexpected and instantaneous. Their encounter only lasts a few minutes, but before they part, they exchange phone numbers.

They live far away from each other, but soon they text and call daily, until Mikko is Henrik’s dearest friend and most trusted person. But a late-night question on the phone has Henrik re-evaluating his feelings. It’s impossible to love someone you’ve only met in person once…right? 

Is the connection Henrik and Mikko forged long distance enough to sustain them when they meet again? And will their love be strong enough to give them the happily ever after they deserve?
