Like Gravity

Her breaking point For the first time in fifteen years she will confront both her grief and her memories as she plays a deadly game of cat and mouse with an unforeseen enemy Because sometimes the demons we must confront aren’t only on the insideLike Gravity is a new full length standalone romantic suspense novel intended for audiences ages. DNF at 27%This book had nothing you have not read a million times before The h had a traumatic experience as a child that caused her to shut herself off from the world Despite being an introvert she has a bubbly social and slutty BF They met in kindergarten when the BF proclaimed that they would be friendsThe h does not date or wear a lot of makeup or dress really girly Of course this means the BF is always forcing her to dress in the BF s slutty clothes go out date guys etc The H is the very poplar lead singer of a band campus man whore docuhebag extraordinaire From the moment he meets the h their interactions involve the H being cocky about his charm and good looks while the h pretends she is not affected but secretly she is in lust What follows is cringe worthy dialogue of him hitting on her and the h being her snarkysassy self I ask how many times have you read this in other books For me it has been too many times I wish authors would put effort in their stories instead of recycling the same tired materials to make a uick buck Before I end this review I want to mention something that infuriated me The h sees her mother shot and killed when she is a kid This is so traumatic she stops talking for a few months According to the story she went to several counselors who forced her to talk about her experience and then became angry when she would not say anything There is no way that counselors would behave this way They are specifically trained to handle children that have selective mutism as a result of trauma This is yet another example of how this author put very little thought when writing this story I was also upset that the h treated her childhood trauma like it had just happened You are not going to experience a childhood trauma at that intensity and freuency when you are in your 20s I hate it when a character that has experienced something bad makes everything about that event and acts like no one understands their pain bc they are so different and special Gimme a BREAK
