    Enjoyable read

    This was a very enjoyable sweet clean read. The characters are very likeable and the plot intriguing. I wish there had a been a bit more passion and fire between these two but overall it was a very entertaining read. April Stephens wants to be a filmmaker specializing in documentaries. Her first step is doing an excellent job during her internship. Dealing with Josh, the subject of her interview, proves to be problematic with his one word answers. Getting him to open up to her will be her biggest challenge, or so she thought. Now that he's talking April finds she really likes him and the spark of attraction between them is the real problem. Not only could she jeopardize her career but falling for a dare devil like her father had been isn't something April can deal with. I would definitely recommend this one.

    Sweet Romance Story!!!

    Lessons in Gravity by Megan Westfield....This was a sweet romance story that kept me glued to the pages. It is a well written, interesting book, with great likeable characters. I enjoyed watching Josh and April's stories be told. Megan Westfield is a new author to me and she was gained a new reader. I voluntarily reviewed an advance copy of this book from publisher via NetGalley.

    So much more than a romance

    This is such a unique and emotionally charged story. Lessons in Gravity is so much more than a romance. The author did a fantastic job with the rock climbing aspects. It's clear she has experience in this sport. There were so many adrenaline-filled, edge-of-your-seat moments that had my palms sweating and heart racing. And the scenic descriptions were magnificent. I could clearly picture the valley and rock faces in my mind. Someday, I would love to visit Yosemite! I instantly fell in love with Josh and April. It was clear from the moment their eyes met that they had a soul deep connection. It was like she could see what was behind his facade when no one else could. I guess only someone with as much pain in their past as April could truly see what lies beneath the surface. I loved the back stories of these characters and how their pasts affected their current emotional state. Once Josh's story was revealed, I couldn't help but root for him and their relationship. April lived in constant turmoil. She was still struggling with witnessing her father's crash and her PTSD. Then she meets Josh, this fearless climber who wants to free solo and attempt climbs that have never been done. How would she ever be able to put the past behind her while spending her internship watching the man she was falling for do these crazy climbs? Could she learn to love someone so deeply that she could overcome those fears to be with him? Was loving Josh and having him for even one more day worth all the pain she might feel down the road? Or would it be better to walk away for good? She also had to consider her job; crew and talent don't fraternize. April had way more to lose than just her heart and her sanity. I think this is one of the first times that I've actually enjoyed the single point of view. I loved all of the unknowns around Josh. Why was he so rigid and closed off? What was behind the kaleidoscope of emotions that played in his eyes? I was just as confused and frustrated as April. She was trying to get her life on track and finish film school. This was her opportunity to make a name for herself, and he seemed hell bent on ruining it for her. But was his public persona really about her or was he just scared? Would April ever be able to bring out the friendly Josh on camera that she sees when he's with his friends? I loved going on this journey with April and experiencing the wonder of this new found love and adventure. Megan Westfield wrote a fabulous book. I'm so honored that I had the opportunity to read an advance copy of Lessons in Gravity. This was an exceptionally written debut novel, and I look forward to living her other adventures.

    Heartbreaking Intricate Love Story

    April's dream is to be a documentary filmmaker, she's lucky enough to have an internship with Walkabout Media & Productions to make that dream come true. However her chore is to get Josh Knox the infamous rock climber who prefers to free solo instead of climbing with the safety of a rope, to open up and give more than one worded clipped answers during an interview. Would she be able to break through his interview pretentiousness? Is it him or is it her? If it's him, why is he like this, is the camera an instant switch for "Jerk Josh"?(*direct book quote) April is able to crack his exterior but falls for him in the process. After what happened to her father, how will she be able to handle his choices? Will she be able to do the added job Danny's asked of her? Josh climbs rocks without a care in the world, or so it seems, what's really going on within and around him? No one else has gotten him to open up like this ever, now it's time to be filmed climbing Sorcerer Spire with its sharp twisting tower, without a rope. *Sorcerer rose from the valley floor to the sky in an uninterrupted swoop. But unlike El Capitan and the other formations, the rock of the Sorcerer was nearly black.(*direct book quote). *“Is it normal to climb ropeless?” she asked. Madigan laughed. “No. It’s not normal. Only the crazies and the insanely good do it. When you climb without a rope, it’s one wrong move and you’re toast.” “Technically, he’ll be free BASEing. Climbing with a parachute in a backpack. It could save him if he falls from high enough, if he pulls the cord fast enough.” (*direct book quote). What happens between Josh & April? How does his Sorcerer climb go? You'll have to read LESSONS IN GRAVITY to find out, but man will it be worth the time it takes for you to read it! It's an EXTREMELY EXHILARATING and emotionally filled story that'll have you laughing, crying, smiling, and falling throughout. This is my first, but definitely not my last Megan Westfield story; what e debut novel! I received an ARC via IndieSage through NetGalley in exchange for a blog tour review. Due to sexual situations, this book is recommended for readers 16 and older. FAVORITE PASSAGES~ -“If you’re not falling, it means you’re not taking risks.” -We’re not alone in this—always remember that. -“You are more resilient than you think.” -When you operate through avoidance, you let your fears control you -What good is life if you’re not living it?

    It burns, it lingers but eventually it heals.

    Megan Westfield's use of rocky mountains, dangerous cliffs and turbulent emotions were essential to the plot line of Lessons in Gravity. Josh and April use their careers as shields. Both are running away from hard to face issues. The problem is no matter how fast they run and how far they escape, troubles still persist. For April facing her fears is a big step but she has yet to come to terms with the painful memories that dog her every waking moment. Lessons in Gravity puts the emotion front and center. April and Josh's journey is like pulling of a scab. It burns, it lingers but eventually it heals.
