"Johnson created likable characters and . . . [Ren�e Chambliss] did a nice job with Brooklyn's and her best friend's voices." ---Bookworm Brandee
Reseña del editor
Twenty-year-old Brooklyn "Bee" Turner is no stranger to grief. After witnessing her mother's brutal murder at age six, Brooklyn is guarded, damaged, and-by all accounts-a bitch. And that's just the way she likes it, if it means keeping everyone at arm's length.When she stumbles, quite literally, into Finn Chambers-campus ladies' man and the lead singer of a local band-she's unprepared for his persistence in befriending her and for the dangerous attraction she begins to feel for him. Because with Finn, she knows that it would be more than just sex, more than just friendship, and maybe even more than just love.When a sinister presence from her past reemerges, Brooklyn will be pushed to 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.Contains mature themes.Ver Descripción del producto

Brooklyn was a great female character. She was funny and surprising. Her mental hang ups could be a little frustrating and left you edgy not knowing if she was going to sabotage herself, but most of her doubts were all just her inner musings.
Finn was GREAT. So glad this book didn't deal with any in your face jealousy. I'm getting so tired of books with bad boys who have sex with other girls in their beginnings and have slutty girls causing so much trouble. This one addresses some girls and jealousy but not once does Finn pay any attention to another female. He only has eyes for Bee.
Their love story was beautiful. You're left with knowing these two really loved one another at the end. The violent creepy scenes that involved Bee's stalker were well written. The opening prologue where Bee's mom was murdered brought tears to my eyes. And the epilogue to this book was GREAT! Love and good epilogue:) it was beautiful and sweet and left you smiling!
I was rummaging through my TBR books that are piles too many already, and after contemplating what to read out of all of them, I randomly picked this one up and read the synopsis at the back and the words “campus ladies‘ man” and “lead singer of a local band” sealed my choice for the evening. Who can refuse that?
After weeks of going through only the feel-good, light reads, I finally decided to dig in the piles of books I collected and I was so happy that I ended up choosing well. Like Gravity, as I’ve read at the “about the author” at the back of my book, was Ms. Julie Johnson’s first novel, and she totally rocked it!
I am not really big into those books that just by reading from the plot alone gives you an idea that it’s a warning or an omen of some kind, and the words “murder” and “grief” doesn’t help much with this book. And as much as I hate to read of so much misery and sadness within the hundreds of pages in the book – because one can only take on so much sorrow and heartbreak in one setting – I am so glad I picked this one up and gave it a go.
“This song is dedicated to a friend I worried I’d lost for good. For a long time I thought it was impossible that this person might still exist out there, but I’m happy to say that sometimes we get second chances in this crazy life. Sometimes the things we lose are returned to us. Sometimes we’re lucky.”
Like Gravity was not what it seemed to be. I thought at first I would be reading a novel with a heroine with too many issues, wherein the hero would help her through with these issues, and they realize they care or fall in love with each other thus making “rock-star” like hero get scared and go back to his rock-star tendencies and in comes jealousy and the grovelling and all that. But I guess I was stereotyping cause I was wrong. So very wrong.
I wouldn’t want to spoil and go into detail about anything that happens in this book. however I totally recommend it. Because this book is a lot of things. It’s full of angst, humor, sexual chemistry, nonstop banters, longing, even suspense and a lot more. From Bee’s misery, her grief, to her bitterness and sassy humor, counteracted by Finn’s easy-going nature, charming wit and relentless determination, you will find yourself loving each of these characters and their stories. You will find yourself absolutely in awe of such dedication and love that you cannot help thinking of fate and second chances.
“I’ve never felt anything like this before, and I know you feel it too. It’s undeniable – like a magnetic force. Like gravity. And it’s not something I can control, or change, or stop. It just is.”
Within its name, “Like Gravity”, this book will pull you and suck you in. And as scared as I was to start this book hoping I wouldn’t be a mess afterwards, I felt like Goldilocks after going through the first few chapters. The book was just right (for me). Not too much (in a good way, I assure you), and not too little… it was just right. :)
Brooklyn was such a breath of fresh air. I know she had some issues, and a tragic backstory. And that was sad. But it is always nice to see a female who is anti-love, anti-relationship, and a bit on the promiscuous side. So often female characters fall on the complete opposite end of the spectrum. Obviously you know that she is going to come around and fall in love by the end. But it's such an emotional journey for her and the reader. You can't help but root for her the whole way through.
Finn was amazing. He was such a fantastic book boyfriend. He was so sweet and understanding. He also had had his own share of tragedy and struggles in his past. He was such an easy character to sympathize with, along with Brooklyn. I just adored him.
There were a few elements of this story that were definitely supposed to be twists, but you can easily see them coming. I don't think that in any way lessened the experience of reading this book. The writing was great, the characters were great. I highly recommend this book if you are a romance, and particularly an NA, fan.
