Book Description

Gravity is not your normal, sweet romance of childhood friends to lovers. Spanning over twenty years—it’s raw, it’s real, asking the question if soul mates really exist.


Lily
At eight years old, the boy next door changed my life. He was the force pulling me toward him despite our differences. It was like magic.
We understood each other, supported each other and in the process became everything to each other.
But in chasing Trevin’s dream, I lost myself along the way.Trevin
Through tremendous heartache, she was there. Through fame and fortune, she was there. Loving Lily was the one thing I got right.
Eclipsing her in my shadow, I took from her until she was empty. Now I must do anything to prove I can be the man she wants, no, the man she deserves.

Gravity is my first book by Lauren Runrow.  I am always slightly hesitant to read a new author, especially in a genre where I am quick finicky.  There are very few rock star romances that I am fan of only because I know what I like and don’t like in them.  Lauren gave me a different side that I wasn’t expecting and I actually enjoyed it.

Gravity is so much more than just the rock star ambiance of sex, drugs and music.  Yes, it’s there but it’s more of muted point.  It’s not a driving force in this book; it’s almost viewed expected and accepted.  Gravity is more about watching two friends grow – sometimes together and sometimes apart.  It’s got its sweet moments and it’s got its ugly and moments.

Trevin and Lily are two kids who become instant friends at the age of 8.  They are there for each other through everything as they grow up.  Lily is there when Trev gets his big break and does her best to stay right there with him as his life blows up.  Lily is getting herself through college and tries to teach dance as much as she can.  And when things are finally falling into place for them, they are finally ready to give way to what has always been there – them together.  But not every HEA is without it’s drama along the way.

“You’ll always be my gravity.  You’re what I need to stay grounded, no matter where I go, no matter what happens, remember that.  Only you.”

Lauren really surprised with how this story progressed.  I knew at some point a problem had to arise and when it came to fruition, as much as I knew it was going to happen, I was still slightly shocked by it and how everything plays out afterwards .  Lauren lays this book out nicely.  If flows extremely and I love that it’s told from both their POV’s.  I enjoy how she wrote Trev and Lily’s story.  It’s honest, real and raw.

If you are like me and have enjoy a good YA/NA book, I highly recommend giving this book a go.  I will definitely be looking to more of Lauren’s other books.
