The Force of Gravity by Kelly Stevenson Review

"I blast the stereo in a vain attempt to drown out my thoughts. I don't want to be thinking about him and analyzing every detail of first period. It makes me feel like a young, foolish girl, and I'm embarrassed that I can't control the way my body reacts every time his eyes meet mine."In a quiet town in the East Valley of Phoenix, Arizona, everything in life is seemingly perfect for eighteen-year-old Kaley Kennedy. She has loving parents, loyal friends, and is dating the hottest boy in school. With only a few months left of her senior year, she's looking forward to an epic summer before heading off to Los Angeles for college.

Without warning, a gorgeous new math teacher interrupts Kaley's predictable little world, challenging who she is. Suddenly, parties, dates, and Friday nights with her friends seem empty and unfulfilling as she finds herself obsessing over his every move. Desperate for something more, but determined to ignore her fierce attraction, every single relationship in her life begins to crumble by forces beyond her control. Struggling to transition from adolescence to adulthood, Kaley must choose between playing it safe or risking more than just her heart. . . .

My Thoughts:
4.5/5 Stars

I love student/teacher romances and this one did not disappoint.
It is a story about a High School senior falling for her math teacher. They have to keep their feelings a secret so both go back and forth between flirting and pushing one another away. Kaley falls hard and fast. Her outlook on life changes completely. She puts her friends on the backburner and slowly pushes her boyfriend farther away. Professor McHotty consumes her thoughts and she tries to block them out only to fall deeper into the web of love.

Eventually the two can't stay away from each anymore. They meet up in secret and try to keep their relationship on the down low. At school they act as if nothing is going on between them. Not everyone believes that though. There is tons of mystery, suspense, and parts that will keep you on the edge of your seat.

I really enjoyed the plot and my only complaint would be that certain details weren't always believable. I thought some minor tweaks in the storyline could have portrayed reality instead of fantasy. It was still a fantastic forbidden love story though!

If you are one of those people who hate huge age gaps... You will appreciate this one. Kaley is 18 and Mr. Slate is in his twenties. Nothing feels wrong about the relationship they share. There is a personal connection along with the intense sexual one.

I highly recommend it to all readers who like a mouth watering book boyfriend!
