The countdown continues here on the blog. Not many days left now until Henrik and Mikko’s story is out in the wild. They live in different parts of the country, separated by 1500 kilometers, and they’re just friends. Very close friends; in fact, Mikko is the only one Henrik has ever trusted wholeheartedly in his entire life.
But they’re just friends. Just friends…or are they?
“You’re gonna be tired tomorrow. I don’t want you to injure yourself while doing the crow pose.”
“Aw, Henrik.” The R in my name rolls on the tip of his tongue. “I appreciate your concern, but you know I can fly in my sleep.”
I know. And he looks magnificent doing it; with his arm muscles bulging as he holds up his weight, one long leg stretched up toward the sky, toes pointed, gaze focused on the mat, he’s the image of perfection, and I can’t help sighing.Quote from It Rained All Night
Today’s song is by one of my absolute favorite artists in the whole wide world 😍
And it ain’t gonna rain anymore
Now my baby’s gone
We still have a few more days to go before release day, so please come back tomorrow for a new snippet and another terrific rain song.
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?
