Review: Gravity by Amelia Wilde
I know I’m ignoring what I did to Tom back at the cafe. There’s probably going to be some fallout. I should work out what I’m going to say to him. But he hasn’t texted me or tried to call me, so screw it. I’ll cross that bridge if I ever come to it. This is my moment. I blow a pleased breath out through my lips and start to cross over to the alcove. That’s when I see him.
Love, to some, is the most beautiful thing in the universe. To others, there is no such thing. When Abigail returns to a town right outside of her hometown, she is forced to relive those high school years when she was deeply in love with a boy…a boy she thought would go to the ends of the earth for her. But, he broke up with her—if they could officially call what they were doing as “dating” anyway. Dex made her move on with her life, get into college and earn a good career, knowing that she would leave him behind because that is what he thought that he deserved. He didn’t feel like he deserved someone like her.
Upon returning to the next town over, her boss has given her free reign over the new company that will be operating out of the new office. With Abigail leaving her ex-boyfriend before making the travel, she finally feels freedom after several years. Then, she runs back into a hunk of a man…the very same person who broke her heart so long ago. How did fate deem this situation—comical or as a second chance?
Wilde introduces her two main characters really well, but her minor characters lack development; this could very well leave the reader dissatisfied or confused. The two main characters are likeable and easy to sympathize with. The content seems credible, yet the plot while slightly predictable—is still entertaining. The writing is fast-paced, making the story a quick read, especially since this can be read as a standalone. If you are a reader of romance or new adult and college, this may be your cup of tea.
