I've always followed my dreams with ruthless determination.
My life was going well. Success was at my fingertips.
Until it wasn't.
All it took was three seconds to send my world crashing down around me,
ripping my dreams to shreds.
Then I meet her, with her large hazel eyes that slay me at first glance.
And everything starts to make sense again.
I try to keep my distance.

For those who know me, my guilty pleasure is reading professor student affair books. I LOVE THEM! I've read every combination, every mix of possible characters and I just can't get enough. Even though I loved them, I am extremely picky. The story has to have something different, because I already read kind of everything and the book has to surprise me with a catch.

Well, what do you know? Braking Gravity by Autumn Grey managed to make me very curious even when reading the blurb and the book was f

The line between student and teacher is blurring.
One kiss..One taste..They’re all it would take to cross that line.

Will these two succumb to temptation?

This might be one of my favorite quotes/tie-in to a title/general concept EVER! I FLOVED this scene <3 I loved how much meaning it brought to the title (which I already loved) and how romantic it was. And it's just perfect for Nate and Elon! PERFECT I tell you!!

4.5 "forbidden/complex/passionate love" stars

The first book i have, now, read by Autumn Grey is a story of forbidden relationship interwoven with a passionate connection between two people, haunted by their pasts who gained a second chance at love when they least wanted it.

You know what if I had a teacher like Nate I would have been the best student or perhaps not so he would call me in his private office. Flirty Wink

Breaking Gravity is book 2 in the series and can be read as a standalone BUT you will be missing out on reading about Cole so I recommend you also read Fall Back Skyward.

Breaking Gravity was such a great story, it was so much more than a simple student- teacher romance. This was the story of two broken people finding love, acceptance, and healing.

First I want to make one thing clear. I'm claiming Nathaniel Rowe. Yes, I'm going to fight Elon for him but I don't care. He's mine and became that from his first appearance in the prologue and in his classroom towering over a sleeping Elon.

Nate's presence oozes male and assertiveness. In his class he's in his element and doing what he knows best. Dedicated to his craft. Teaching about music. Out of the classroom he's so much more. He's a loving uncle to his niece and nephew, a rock of an older

I have to admit that I was hesitant to read Breaking Gravity. I love the cover (so gorgeous!), but I’m not a fan of teacher-student romances. Some reviews convinced me to give this one a try and I’m so glad that I did. Breaking Gravity is heartbreaking, hot and beautiful. I loved Elon and Nate. They both had a relationship (good or bad) in the past that still affects their lives now, but they will get another chance at love with each other. The progress was great. They really deserve the happily ...more

"She takes my breath away without even trying."

Ever since I finished reading Fall Back Skyward, I was looking forward to the side-characters getting their own book. One of them was Elon, Nor's younger sister. There were some hints to her rocky relationship with her new professor, who she named Mr. Scowl-A-Lot. I am going to be honest and say I was a bit hesitant when I read this was a student/teacher romance, because I always either end up loving

In the prologue, we learn that Nate lost the love of his life and sustained injuries that ended his music career. The story then starts with him taking a temporary professor position at Elon's school.

Now I tend to avoid dead ex-stories when it comes to romance because I don't want to waste my time with a hero grieving and wishing for his ex. Thankfully this wasn't one of those books. Nate never compares Elon with his past love, he loves her independently from that but with a love that i

Nate and Elon, where to even begin their love story is a symphony, a collection of melodies, emotions, movement and serenity. It brings feelings of peace and comfort along with turmoil and chaos. But the rhythm, the fluid beat of the story, it never let up, never wavered, it was as constant as the pulse in my wrist.

This book had a pulse all its own. Lines Blurred, Bounaries Crossed, it was chemistry, passion, souls colliding at 100 miles an hour. God, I'm

Nope, this is not doing it for me, sorry!

There was a potential here with two wounded characters trying to heal with the love they feel for each other and the forbidden touch to it sounded appealing to me but the execution of it all didn't live up to my expectations, unfortunately.


First of all, it is dragging and mostly boring for me. However, I would still continue reading it if I felt the connection and chemistry between the hero and the heroine bu

I honestly was blown away by this book here! I'm not even sure I have the adequate words to describe how unbelievably amazing this book was.

It was a second chance at redeeming yourself, a second chance at forgiving yourself and a second chance at love.

Nathaniel (Nate) Rowe has been through hell and feels that he doesn't deserve a second chance. The moment he lays his eyes on Elon Blake his world shifts and he never thought it would ever shift again. But reality douses him like a bucket of cold

Student/teacher romance is my fav and this did not fail me! It was hot as all hell, and Nate just had me on my toes the entire time!

'Breaking Gravity' was my first book by Autumn and I am so glad it was my type of trope! Immediately from the chilling prologue, I was hooked! I could not put my kindle down, for the life of me, because Nate already proved to be such a broken and intriguing character and I needed to know what actually occurred.

Can I just say wow....
My heart has shattered in tiny pieces.
Nathan and Elon are two people who have seen it all. Love, loss, and tragedy. This is a forbidden relationship, but it felt like so much more. The chemistry between these two were damn combustible!
Sharing the love of music, they find an unmistaken attraction and cross the lines between teacher/ student.

Autumn Grey will pull your heartstrings with this raw, heart-wrenching, love story.

Oh this book was everything. Autumn Grey surpassed all my expectations. I loved it. The writing was breathtaking.

Holy hell this right here cemented my love/lust for Nate:

As a fan of student teacher romance, I was super excited to read this book. I’m a huge fan of this author so I have been looking forward to this story for awhile. But honestly? To paint it as just a student teacher romance is simply scratching the surface. This book goes deeper. Beyond the idea of forbidden love. This book is simply about the greatest love.

Literally what have you done to me?!

I've been waiting to fall off my chair and become overly obsessed with a story. It's been a minute.

Breaking Gravity is my new obsession. Firstly, teacher -student romances are my fave. Autumn did not disappoint. This story was so over the top good, but not just fans self because it's a forbidden read. Every word written was explosive and addictive to the point of insanity. I devoured this one.

This was my first read from this author and it definitely won't be my last.

Heartfelt, angst filled story of forbidden love. It's a beautiful read. Professor Rowe has jumped into my BBF Hall of Fame. The perfect off limits, dirty talking older Professor meets his match with Elon - the quirky, gorgeous, strong and slightly damaged student. Fantastic slowburn love story with the perfect amount of heat. Definitely recommend to anyone looking for a great teacher/student romance.

PDL's Rating: 5 'Dream-like' Punches (Loved)

My review will be a quick one on this and it has nothing to do with my love for it. In this case, less is more.

I cannot even express how beautifully written Breaking Gravity is. If you have read Fall Back Skyward already, you will be in for a treat. The reason why I say this is because Fall Back Skyward introduced us to little Elon, but in Breaking Gravity… our little Elon is all grown-up and I have nothing but love for her character in Breaking Gravit

Breaking Gravity was more that I expected. So much more. I was overwhelmed.

This book hit all the things I love in romance, tortured, cocky characters, tough but with a big heart, loving their woman with all their being. The banter was incredible, from the passionate ones to the saddest ones, I was sold.

This book was an emotional rollercoaster with many ups and downs which started off with a huge bang as prologue that literally took my breath away. This is a captivating story about a young woman with a haunting past who is chasing her dreams and discovering her sexuality while getting involved with her professor and a man with shattered dreams, plagued by guilt and self-loathing who finds a new purpose in life after falling for his student.

Well I'm going to start by saying I'm kinda mad at myself right now for not reading this fabulous author before now & without question, I will be reading Fall Back Skyward as soon as physically possible. Breaking Gravity has literally swept me off my feet, bringing with it a whole host of emotions I wasn't expecting.

I have to say that I think Ms. Grey outdid herself with this one. It had me captivated from the very first page.

Nate is so hot!! He's a perfect book boyfriend. He's alpha, yet sweet, and broody. He had a past he was trying outrun and he didn't count on his student making her way into his heart.

Elon had a damaging past as well. She however was no delicate flower. She stood up for herself and knew just want she wanted.

Together these two made the best kind of fireworks.

Buy this book!!

Another heartwarming and emotional read by Autumn Grey.

A student teacher romance, a forbidden romance, The stars align, the heart wants what the heart wants and the result a story of surrendering to the heart.
