We understood each other, supported each other and in the process became everything to each other.
But in chasing Trevin’s dream, I lost myself along the way.Trevin
Through tremendous heartache, she was there. Through fame and fortune, she was there. Loving Lily was the one thing I got right.
Eclipsing her in my shadow, I took from her until she was empty. Now I must do anything to prove I can be the man she wants, no, the man she deserves.
Review by Christine:
Gravity by Lauren Runow is a beautifully told friends to lovers story told over 20 years. Weaving a tale of two kids friendship that turns to romantic feelings with time, it’s poetically heartbreaking at times but utterly breathtaking in equal parts. Trevin life hasn’t been easy, raised in an abusive household he had always found a safe place with his best friend and neighbour Lily. Lily holds her relationship with Trevin close to her heart and she wants nothing but to see him succeed in life. As time passes friendship turns into love and lines are blurred. Dreams are followed, success is had but when you follow someone else’s dream do you lose yourself in the process?
Oh man, did I ever love this book! This is so different than anything Lauren has published before and I was addicted from the first chapter. Gravity pulled me in and didn’t let me go till the final page on an emotional rollercoaster ride. Trevin’s story broke me and watching him struggle to find himself and love Lily the way she deserves affected me to the core. Lily love for Trevin is so raw and pure that she’s willing to forgo her own dreams until she starts to lose herself in the journey and question the end game. Gravity and one of those stories that stick with you and 5 books later I’m still thinking about it and these moving characters. 5 Stars for Gravity by Lauren Runow
