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 mo

Adiana Ray has written a short action packed romance story. There are romantic fireworks between Sonia and JD, the main characters. Rapid Fall is a exciting romantic adventure.

When was the last time you read a romance that begins with the protagonists falling in love while at a white water rafting event? I haven't. EVER. The title of Adiana Ray's novella hooked me from the word go. Rishikesh, rafting, romance...what's not to love!

Adiana Ray creates tension with her description of rafting in the Ganges. And I was immediately transported to Rishikesh and the raging waters. Where Sonia, the heroine, has carted her politicking colleagues for a session of bonding, corpora

Rapid Fall is a good choice if you simply want a quick and reader- friendly book to read on the weekend or whilst commuting to and from work. It is a short punchy novella that sometimes manages to keep the reader on their toes, or wanting to find out more about the lives of the characters,in a voyeuristic kind of way. This Novella probably would do well if it was aimed at the Young Adult market.

However, I must admit I was a little disappointed with the overall story.After reading the back cover

Rapid Fall by Adiana Ray is an adventure romance novella.JD and Sonia meet at an adventure camp at a white-water rafting campsite in Rishikesh and after that destiny just keeps them bringing together.The main conflict is basically JD's commitment issues and the usual clashing of egos where they fail to agree on a common point.The plot is quite simple but its setting and narration makes it standout.

JD and Sonia share an amazing chemistry and the tension between them is well portrayed.

Adiana Ray’s “Rapid Fall” is a very with the times love story. JD and Sonia – the lead characters are people that you and me would be easily familiar with. JD is a successful, divorced workaholic who as a result is a commitment phobe. Sonia is a young, ambitious corporate executive hailing from a small town bearing her own baggage of insecurities. Their attration is very interesting and the manner in which Adiana has depicted their sizzling physical chemistry is very mature. If you like a readin ...more

Loved the authenticity of characterization and dialogue. Fast and action packed Adiana has written a story that one has to finish at one go. Chemistry between Sonia and JD is hot and sizzling. Highly recommended for lovers of romantic tales that end happily.

Sonia comes as a very strong character. Her life in Mumbai is very relatable for any Indian, working girl in Mumbai. I loved the way Adiana has touched small details like how Sonia thinks she has to reach home on time before the nightfall, without making her sound like a damsel in distress.

On the other hand, I could not understand, why Sonia was a weeping willow in front of JD. ( OMG, I am getting old and forgetting the turmoils of first love!) But then at Sonia's age, I did expect more maturit

Rapid Fall is a short and a fast paced love story of JD and Sonia. They meet at a white-water rafting campsite at Rishikesh. They fall in love but realize their love for each other a bit late. Ego and misunderstandings separate them for a while and then good judgement brings them back again.

I liked the plot of the story which is novel and unique. The initial part of the story is set against the backdrop of the rafting expedition at Rishikesh. The challengi

The fast paced novella is true to its name Rapid Fall; Rapid because you want to eagerly turn the next page to know more and Fall because by the end of the book you are in love with the characters and the writer.

The story line is simple much like most romantic fiction – boy meets girl but what sets it apart is the way it is narrated. As the story that unfolds and you get to read about the apprehensions of JD as well as Sonia. Adiana has been very candid in her writing; she has mad

This is Adiana's first published book I read at the end and I am really impressed! The story of Sonia and JD kept me entertained and thoughtful. I like that Sonia is an independent woman, who works as an Assistant HR Manager. She lives alone in the city, went to school and got her MBA. JD has some relationship issues from his past, being divorced with an 11 yr old daughter. They get off to a rocky start at Camp RapidZ, where Sonia's work retreat was scheduled and JD happened to be her guide. Som ...more

The title of this love story is so intriguing and suitable to the story. Kudos to the author for excellent writing and mesmerizing the beautiful scenery of Rishikesh in the book. The author has chosen the wonderful set-up for her story. What can be more majestic and adventurous then the rapid falls of Rishikesh? The book brought back my memories of rafting and the adventure I had with my friends. We don’t have the naive girls and boys in the book but rather a set of strong characters who knows w ...more

JD is a hero you want to love from the moment you meet him. Impetuous, imperious, a wee bit confused, he is man as God made him before He made woman. Sonia is the perfect match for JD. And when the two meet at a white water rafting camp, expectedly, the fireworks begin. But where Adiana Ray, author of Rapid Fall, really shows her genius is in her supporting cast, JD’s friend, Monica, and Sonia’s smarmy colleague, Navin. You leave the book with the warm feeling that JD and Sonia are really, truly ...more

As the title suggests, Rapid Fall is a fast paced tumble down the slippery slope of love. Adiana Ray, the author, is patently an adventure enthusiast. In the opening scenes of the story, she paints a fabulous - though frightening – picture of what it is to be a brave-heart. Her hero, JD, is a toughie who thinks nothing of hurtling down the rapids. The description of his (mis)adventure is fantastic and I had my heart in my mouth the whole time. It is no wonder Sonia falls for him at first sight, ...more

JD meets Sonia on a trip to Rishikesh , training and saving her life during river rafting. They begin on a not so good note but something about each other keeps both wondering. finally it is JD who decides to take a chance at setting things right only to mess it up with his insecurities.

Of course there is happy ending but the build up is amazingly done. I thoroughly enjoyed this. It is a fresh feeling to read love stories that are real and handled with keeping in mind that readers wish to read

This book is very good. The only thing I would have liked done better was to have the part about the rapids a little longer then what actually was written but in all it was very well written and I enjoyed this book. I give this book 5 star.

A light, nice and fast paced book. The characters have been described well. I loved the detailed description of the scenic beauty of Rishikesh and the falls. JD and Monica’s relationship is beautiful. Good work, Adiana.
