it was amazing

4.5 stars

When it comes to a daredevil I am like a bee round a honeypot and Lessons in Gravity brings us fearless rock climber, Josh Knox.


This is a superb debut from Megan Westfield and she delivers a character driven story which gathers pace as the storyline progresses. The blurb is what sold this to me so there's no need for me to repeat the plot, but what I will say is that Josh and April were great characters who have been through some tough times in their lives that has left them with a vulnerable side. April brings out the very best in Josh; around her he lets his barriers down and proves that what you see isn't always what you get, however for April, irrespective of her strong feelings for Josh, her insecurities and fears are heightened the deeper she falls.

"...she would never—not ever—fall for a guy who risked his life for a living."

This is a fairly slow-burn romance, which is fitting of the couple and their circumstances and it is pretty much closed-door in terms of intimacy, so if you're looking for a sex-fuelled NA read, then this isn't that. But what it lacks in passion, it makes up for in emotion and story detail, and Josh and April do bring intimacy in terms of their developing feelings and vulnerabilities, and when an author can hold a lengthy romance together without it, then that to me is testament to their skill.


With a great cast of secondary characters each adding value and depth, by the time I had flicked the final page I was ready to scale the rock-faces of Yosemite which, for someone who is only capable of climbing the stairs, is impressive. Megan Westfield is definitely an author I'll be reading again in the future.
