I sure wasn't expecting this book! Honestly, I thought this was going to be another typical love story. Man, was I wrong!

Starting out, I has a rough time with this book. It moved a little slow, and I had a hard time keeping my mind on the book as I read. Then, all of a sudden, the book took a turn. Then another turn. Then another. By the second half of the book, I had whiplash of the brain from all of the turns the story kept taking.

As you read, you glimpses of things. Things you think you have pegged. Then, boom! It's not entirely what you were expecting! The lies, the hatred, the betrayals, the lust, the love, the secrets. It all stays in place, twirling like a tornado. And boy, do you need to hold on or you will be swept up!

Now as far as the characters themselves go... Well, I haven't quite made up my mind on them. I can't decide whether I dislike or like either of them. At times, they are likable. At other times, I want to punch them for being dumb asses. Their fake/real/fake/real relationship got on my nerves from time to time, but it worked. It was the basis of the story. Their lies. Their truths. They all blended together making the most complex characters I have encountered yet! ( )

This book started out extremely melodramatic. I listened to ten minutes and decided to listen to it some other time. I started it again yesterday, and I'm so glad I did!!

The beginning IS extremely melodramatic, but it's not some overly 'poor me' character as I suspected. Get past that part and things begin making sense.

This was a great story. I think it would be better categorized in the 'romantic suspense' category rather than 'new adult'. I'm not sure how it happened, but it seems like all 'new adult' book are just love stories with erotica and some very obvious plot. That is NOT the case with this book. It's deep, it's fairly dark and completely unpredictable.

I was provided with a free copy of this book by the author, narrator or publisher in exchange for an unbiased review. ( )

This story really gets under your skin and doesn't mess around when it comes to being the real deal.

Absolutely BRILLIANT! The story is hardcore, and dramatic to the finest. Addison Moore really gets in there dirtying her hands with the writing style and put so much thought into it, allowing the details have more than just an imaginative visual of the story unfolding. Moore really exposes all of the knit and gritty aspects and the most prominent attributes of this tale and in the end presents a magnificent piece of work. Able to bring a reader to tears in less than 12 pages in and leaving them a blubbering mess, both sated but needing more is very hard to accomplish and Moore did exactly that.

Saying the prose was great, the poetry was even greater. The depth, perception, and emotion it had beset a fantastic emphasis to the prose, and vice versa. The poetry itself held answers to the story in general and of the many situations these baggage-carrying characters continuously found themselves in.

Many things were happening all at once, so a reader's full attention is recommended. However, things were fairly easy to follow and understand. This book had it all: money, power, affairs, love, hate, jealousy, lust, passion, revenge, illness, betrayal. A lot of how the characters lives' revolved around were the secrets and lies.

Main character, Stephanie 'Stevie' Eaton lost her twin sister when they where 16, and since then had kept her promise of living for her sister, until that day she decides to be reunited with her twin once again. Things didn't go as planned, so she finds herself at the hands of the deadly attractive Crawford 'Ford' Cannon that has now saved her life more than once. What becomes of their endless days of passion quickly builds something more than just a mere one-night stand that soon comes to an end. Note that there is a saying about when one thing ends, another starts anew. Well, that beginning has both Stevie and Ford in for more than they could ever ask for or dream of...

A lot of the time, the characters mention the irony in how situations happen, and how some characters were there for a reason instead of just a coincidence. The humor in here was just as entertaining. Even though the mention of Sweaty Betty was irrelevant to the story, it was needed for the flirtation between the two main characters as well as easily allow the reader see the depiction of the story's more common environment setting and to set the atmosphere at the point in the book. The passionate love scenes are more than a reader could ask more: smoldering-hot, heart-wrenching and beautiful in every sense of the word.

I really find the author's choice of illness (cancer) interesting in how it effects the main character and therefore sets off the many landmines exploding before the readers eyes, and the reason behind most of it is unknown until the very end, keeping it completely off the radar from both the character and the reader to find out later on when everything is said and done.

The psychological impact his pretty voluminous, as well and metaphorically speaking. What balances that out is the philosophical conversations the characters have with one another to more than likely keep most of them sane often enough. There is also the character's religious belief that is well known from the beginning, which is more likely Moore's more personal input that gives a more realistic sense in a particular way to sort of show some balance with all the sin-like actions being made hereon out.

I love the heart-felt emotions flooding throughout the pages, sucking in the reader with everything other then a story that farts out rainbows and cotton candy. The unicorn depiction in Briana Gaitan's [b:Ethereal Underground|18749046|Ethereal Underground (Ethereal Underground #1)|Brooke Kennedy|https://d.gr-assets.com/books/1383531406s/18749046.jpg|26634497] is more like it. Bittersweet. The balance scale is always more on one end than the other, but does find equilibrium soon enough.

Overall, I really had a fantastic time reading this amazing story and would highly recommend it to any lover of romance stories because Burning Through Gravity is an absolute MUST-READ. I am definitely pumped to begin the next book in this series when available. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 150076843X, Paperback)

BURNING THROUGH GRAVITY—they soared so high so fast they never expected the fall. Two beautiful souls. Two seemingly innocent deceptions. Once they meet, Stevie and Ford explode into one another in a ball of lust, hotter than a July moon. Ford is assertive, dominate and in control, that is until Stevie brings him to his knees. He thinks she’s the most beautiful woman he’s ever met both inside and out. Stevie thinks he’s sweet, and sort of goofy—of course it doesn’t hurt that he drips sex like honey. Stevie is starting to fall hard for Ford. And Ford is all in with Stevie. She wonders if he could ever forgive her for what she’s about to do. She wonders if she wants him to. They say love conquers all. But love never met two liars like Stevie and Ford. His lie cost her a few sleepless nights. Her lie will cost him everything.
