SYNOPSIS: Weightless_3D After a perfect summer, Sophie returns to college for her senior year. Leaving behind her greatest source of strength, she has to work even harder to keep her demons quiet. But when her past collides with her happiness for the final time, she’s faced with a new normal. Is she strong enough to stay on top? Does she believe she’s worthy of forever, or will she give it all up for a chance at peace? One more try. One more chance. Now a college graduate, Kipton stumbles upon the opportunity of a lifetime. Facing an unexpected long distance relationship, he’s struggling to find the perfect balance between life and love. All he wants is to protect his girl, but he doesn’t know how. Especially when she starts keeping secrets. Fate has already determined their path. Time controls it. Are Sophie and Kipton strong enough to overcome the odds? Will they conquer the past once and for all? Only one person knows the answer to free her – to make her weightless. Weightless is the full-length follow-up to Lighter, and the conclusion to Sophie and Kipton’s story.

REVIEW: This book is such a wonderful read! Lighter had been gripping and surreal, but beautiful. Weightless is still surreal, but hopeful and full of passion. The story begins during the summer after Kipton has graduated. Sophie is in her senior year and Kipton has accepted an offer to teach at another school…this means that they will be apart for longer than they ever imagined. Sophie understands that a relationship does have some rough patches and isn’t rainbows and butterflies all of the time…but Kipton isn’t ready to make that sacrifice yet. They decide that they will try to meet up on the weekends since Sophie, Cara and Drew have their own apartment for the semester and live off campus. When things spin out of control with Sophie and Kipton’s past relationships coming back to stare them down, Kipton and Sophie might not be strong enough to endure the pain and hardships that come with it. When reading this book, I really enjoy Cara and Drew so much! Both characters are fun and easy going, I really would love to read more about their connection. Kipton and Sophie’s relationship had been wonderful over the summer, but the jealousy that they soon came to see was a little immature. I am sure that some relationships happen just that way, but I hoped that these emotions would be short-lived since it was a little annoying. The passion that both of these characters have for their future is incredible and I loved reading about the ambition and spark in gymnastics and athletic coaching. Sophie’s father really played a strong and supportive role as well, which I did love. Family is important and the author made sure to emphasize that, no matter the cost. Another aspect about this story that I really enjoyed is that Sophie’s heart is GOLD! She cares about the people in her life, even though the people from her past did not show her the respect and love that she deserved or wanted. In my opinion, the story was a little predictable; however, it did not take away from the emotional turmoil or the way that the story developed in it’s own unique way. I really enjoyed love that author is able to take real problems that people face on a daily basis and weave them into her stories. It makes reading them so much more complex, captivating, and hopeful. I rate this book with five stars since it held my attention throughout the entire story. I feel that this book is targeted to young adult readers who enjoy fiction and contemporary romance. I didn’t have any trouble reading through the chapters since her words were very descriptive and easy to picture. The pace is steady; however, I do not recommend reading Weightless as a standalone. It would make a lot more sense to read Lighter which is book one, before heading into book two.
