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.

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.

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.  A wonderfully angsty, emotional soul mate love story.
Lily and Trevin became fast friends at the age of eight.  While not always copacetic, they love each other. They've had their fair shares of ups and downs, and that good ole standard of when it's right for one it's not necessarily right for the other...right time wrong place n all.
We get to delve into a twenty plus year relationship between two people who love each other..but perhaps love their dreams more. Wether they be dreams of sex, drugs, and rock n roll...or the famed dream of happily ever after.
Both characters grow and change as people do, which was nice to see. The fact they didn't keep their same easy going personalities was nice to see. I loved the angry moments, the more angst filled moments.
This was on ok read for me.  It kept me turning the pages, but I was never fully invested. It was well written, I just didn't connect with the characters like I did with Lauren Runow's previous stories. I will however continue to read her work.
