"Everything I want in a book... I can't wait to recommend this to everyone I know!" - New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Cora Carmack
All eyes are on Josh Knox…
He’s fearless. Guarded. And a daredevil rock climber. The best in the world.
His next feat? Scale Yosemite’s notoriously treacherous Sorcerer Spire, with a production company filming his every move.
He’s also April Stephens’s personal hell.
Her dream to be a documentary filmmaker rests on her nailing her internship at the production company. But she can’t do that if abrasive Josh won’t give her more than one-word answers in his interviews.
The only solution is to gain his trust, but with every step forward professionally, she and Josh grow closer personally. And a guy who risks his life for a living is the last person she should be falling for.
Now Josh has his last climb—without a rope—and April isn’t sure if she, Josh, or their new relationship will survive.
Heartbreaking Intricate Love Story
•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.

-What good is life if you’re not living it?
This was a very enjoyable sweet clean read. The characters are very likeable and the plot intriguing. I wish there had a been a bit more passion and fire between these two but overall it was a very entertaining read.
April Stephens wants to be a filmmaker specializing in documentaries. Her first step is doing an excellent job during her internship. Dealing with Josh, the subject of her interview, proves to be problematic with his one word answers. Getting him to open up to her will be her biggest challenge, or so she thought. Now that he's talking April finds she really likes him and the spark of attraction between them is the real problem. Not only could she jeopardize her career but falling for a dare devil like her father had been isn't something April can deal with.
I would definitely recommend this one.
