Lily:
A man dubbed The Playboy of Paris is the last thing I need.

I came to Paris needing an ocean and a language between me and my past.
I need to learn to live again without fear.

Can I trust him? Can I trust mys

Fighting Gravity follows the story of Lily and Nathan. At first glance, Nathan appears to be every girls fantasy: Wealthy, Attractive and Confident. He is the owner of a very successful indie record label and known as the Playboy of Paris. He spends his nights getting lost in the music and going through the girls. However there is more to Nathan than meets the eye. Haunted by the pain of his past, he never lets anyone get close to him. He often finds himself at an old theater, which is where all ...more

Review originally posted on A Lovely Book Affair.

“When we climb into bed and I wrap my arms around her I know I’ve found my safe space. My sanctuary. And it’s not a place but a person.”

I admired Lily and her strength to get over her past and start a new life for herself in which she could move on and forget the tragic events of her past. Sometimes though, it felt a little like some of her actions didn’t match the anxiety she was feeling. She seemed like a little bit of an inconsistent character

Did i like this book? Yes, Did i love this book? Im not quite so sure.

I love the initial plot, with Lily having suffered in her past and trying to move on from that in a new place. Then there’s Nathan, at first glance he seem’s like a confident playboy but then we find out more about him and discover that he too has a past he is trying to move on from.

This book has plenty of intrigue to keep you interested but for me it is a fairly long book (took three days for me to read it) and i found mysel

Nathan is a powerful man in the most romantic city in Europe, Paris. He’s a dream: rich, good looking and has a very lucrative job. Being an owner of a very successful record company, he should have everything. But even the man considered to be the Playboy of Paris has something missing in his life. Until he meets Lily in the most devastating circumstances.

Lily escaped her life, and tried to built a new one in Paris. It was supposed to be a fresh start, away from the life that wounded her, and m

Lily came to Paris to escape her past and heal so she can have a future. She’s tired of always looking behind her and being afraid. But she feels like a magnet for bad luck, except when tragedy strikes this time, a handsome man breaks down the door to save her. She’s not ready to start anything, but there is something about him that makes her want to try to learn to trust again.

The last thing Nathan needs is a distraction. He doesn’t do relationships. He didn’t mean to save her and he sure didn’

 [I received a digital arc for an honest review]

Julie Adams debut novel Fighting Gravity was fantastic! Holy crap I loved this book so damn much!!! Once I started I couldn't put it down because I loved the characters and the sex scenes were some of the best I have read in a while.


Lily is trying to regain her confidence and looking for a fresh start when she moves to Paris. She has been through something quite traumatic and finds it hard to trust men and her own decisions when it comes to them. L
