Gravity by Melissa West
TBP: 10.30.12 by Entangled Teen
Pages: 199
Goodreads / Purchase
Don’t. Ever. Peek. Seventeen-year-old Ari Alexander just broke that rule and saw the last person she expected hovering above her bed — arrogant Jackson Locke, the most popular boy in her school. She expects instant execution or some kind of freak alien punishment, but instead, Jackson issues a challenge: help him, or everyone on Earth will die. Ari knows she should report him, but everything about Jackson makes her question what she’s been taught about his kind. And against her instincts, she’s falling for him. But Ari isn’t just any girl, and Jackson wants more than her attention. She’s a military legacy who’s been trained by her father and exposed to war strategies and societal information no one can know — especially an alien spy, like Jackson. Giving Jackson the information he needs will betray her father and her country, but keeping silent will start a war.

So I"m on the blog tour and I kinda feel that due to that fact,I'm supposed to have a good review. But maybe for the sake of the tour, it'll be good to have another opinion in there. Eh? I'm not impying I didn't like this book. Just that I didn't give me the right first impression and from there....well....here is my review, in impressions

My first impression: Oooh-Space? Intrigue, Romance! YES!

After the first two pages: What the heck is going on here?

Further in: So she didn't hardly notice you but as soon as she disobeys her societies one rule she's attracted to you. JINX,

A few chapters in: Thank you for avoiding the definition of this term. Oh and might I remind you that I'm not good at reading between the lines? Please tell me what this is!

1/4 way through: Interesting plot. I'm grasping at strings. This could get good.... Where is this insta-love coming from?

1/2 way through: Insta-love. Ick. You hardly know each other and then bing-bang-boom it turns into lets make-out. Oh and we have a plot going on what I half understand. But yay for your writing. You're really doing good at this. Minus the description point.

................
Okay enough. It sounds like I didn't like it doesn't it. Darn. It's one of those wierd situations where you feel like it's a good read, but there are all these problems and you don't know how to bring out the good in the book. *sigh* I did enjoy reading this. I did. But......

Honestly, there are lots of great reviews out for this book. So don't believe everything I say. I can be charmingly misleading. Trust your heart. Use the force...whatever. I hope you like this book. I really do.........

Content: Mild
