it was amazing

Heartbreaking intricate love story

April's dream is to be a documentary filmmaker, she's lucky enough to have an internship with Walkabout Media & Productions to make that dream come true. However her chore is to get Josh Knox the infamous rock climber who prefers to free solo instead of climbing with the safety of a rope, to open up and give more than one worded clipped answers during an interview. Would she be able to break through his interview pretentiousness? Is it him or is it her? If it's him, why is he like this, is the camera an instant switch for "Jerk Josh"?(*direct book quote) April is able to crack his exterior but falls for him in the process. After what happened to her father, how will she be able to handle his choices? Will she be able to do the added job Danny's asked of her?
Josh climbs rocks without a care in the world, or so it seems, what's really going on within and around him? No one else has gotten him to open up like this ever, now it's time to be filmed climbing Sorcerer Spire with its sharp twisting tower, without a rope. *Sorcerer rose from the valley floor to the sky in an uninterrupted swoop. But unlike El Capitan and the other formations, the rock of the Sorcerer was nearly black.(*direct book quote). *“Is it normal to climb ropeless?” she asked. Madigan laughed. “No. It’s not normal. Only the crazies and the insanely good do it. When you climb without a rope, it’s one wrong move and you’re toast.” “Technically, he’ll be free BASEing. Climbing with a parachute in a backpack. It could save him if he falls from high enough, if he pulls the cord fast enough.” (*direct book quote).
What happens between Josh & April? How does his Sorcerer climb go? You'll have to read LESSONS IN GRAVITY to find out, but man will it be worth the time it takes for you to read it! It's an EXTREMELY EXHILARATING and emotionally filled story that'll have you laughing, crying, smiling, and falling throughout. This is my first, but definitely not my last Megan Westfield story; what e debut novel! I received an ARC via IndieSage through NetGalley in exchange for a blog tour review. Due to sexual situations, this book is recommended for readers 16 and older.
