Publisher's Summary

Gravity is not your normal, sweet romance of childhood friends to lovers. Spanning over 20 years - it's raw, it's real, asking the question if soul mates really exist. 

Lily At eight years old, the boy next door changed my life. He was the force pulling me toward him despite our differences. It was like magic.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. 

This audio book was redone with a new female narrator on May 24, 2019 which fixed any audio issues.

Bad. Bad. Bad.

I skipped most of the book. The story had potential but was so juvenile. The performances were bad as well. Sounded like high school kids reading in class.

This was a wild ride following Lily and Trev from childhood to adult. Lots of ups and down and finding their balance.

Lily and Trevin grew up as neighbors and great friends. They've been through everything together. Trevin is a big rock star now and Lily has let her dreams go so she can be by his side for the wolf journey. She is his gravity. Can these two find their way into he world and love that's more than a friendship?

Sweet love story

I loved the relationship between the characters, but the book dragged in the end somewhat.

Nice rock and roll romance story! It was hard to put down so I ended up reading it instead of sleeping.

love the story but audio needs work.

On June 28, 2019 I listened to the audiobook after reading the book numerous times. Listening to the story brought out things that I and missed before. I hadn't realized how many times the reason for the title was brought up in some way. It was touching. It added to the story and the importance of Lily in Trevin's life.

This was the first book I read by Lauren Runow and the first audiobook of Lauren Runow's that have I listened to. I feel like I just got off a crazy rollercoaster full of emotion. I have laughed. I have cried. I have sat in shock. I have fumed. I have even screamed out some colorful language all thanks to the creative writing of the author. My issues aren't with the story, but with the female narrator.

She was disappointing. She came across as if this was her first narration, lacking emotion. While the young voice worked better in the beginning, but last Lily got older it hindered the story. The male voice narration was much easier to listen and enjoy. You could hear the sincerity of the character and even the regret in his actions making for a much more enjoyable listen.

We meet Lily and Trevin when they are in elementary school. They are neighbors. They are best friends. They are everything. Even from the beginning they were proof that opposites attract. She comes from a good family. Trevin's is the dictionary illustration for dysfunctional. Lily is the one thing that helps him survive, helps him live. And then he leaves to become a successful rockstar. He soon realizes that without Lily there is no life.

This is a story about the challenges to make a relationship work. This is a story of inner strength. This is a story of determination, giving hope to all romantics. This is a story that shows that love can save someone and friendship is the best stepping stone to love. Don't give up. Actions speak louder than words.

Friends to lovers and maybe second chance too!

This is my first time with this author and these narrators as well. I have bought books by Lauren but have yet to get to my TBR so when I won this audiobook, I was so excited.

The narration is great but the young Trevin didn’t sound much different from the older guy. Jay does a fabulous job with the singing! Bridget’s performance as Lily was amazing.

This story is very moving and it makes you root for Trevin and Lily and their relationship thru two decades. As you follow them along it’s full of real heart wrenching details but through it all the love they have for one another remains. It’s a beautifully written book and very worth the time to listen to this! Thank you for gifting me this audiobook, much appreciated ❣️

DNF

I got half way through chapter 6 and decided this just isn't for me. There are so many issues with this book to chapter 6 that I couldn't even finish.

Good story spanning 20 years

I enjoyed listening to this book because the premise of the story was good. Best friends who love each other, but never quite get it together for 20 years. It was good because the will they won't they element didn't drag on, but was punchy and interesting. There was a part when they were fifteen when I wanted to band their heads together, but in general the storyline and plot development was excellent. My issue with this audio book was the narrators. While doing dialogue they were fine, but when performing the descriptive narrative I found them both to be a little robotic and monotone. In the end I did get used to it, but at times it was of detriment to the story. Overall an enjoyable 7 hours and 10 mins listening to a great story.

His Gravity <3

Lily and Trev met when they were kids and had an instant connection. She is the stability in his very unstable life. When they are teens Trev is faced with a life changing event and Lily is there for him, as always. Trev realizes he’s has feelings for Lily and kisses her but soon after he breaks the kiss he realizes what he’s done and vows to never do it again because her friendship is important to him and he’s scared to lose her. After Trev starts writing songs and singing, Lily realizes how talented he is and gets him an audition. With the guitar Lily got him for his birthday, Trev knocks the socks off of the talent scouts. This begins Trev’s life on the road. He and Lily remain best friends but each are living their own life. Lily is in college and Trev is touring. After some time Lily moves in with Trev and eventually their friendship turns romantic. Their story is over many years and they have good times and bad times that they just get through life together. Lily has moments when she feels she is losing herself to be with Trev and he is scared to lose the only person who loves him. I really liked Trev’s character. Lily, at times, seemed to be a little self-centered. Trev’s love for Lily never wavered and he was willing to do whatever she asked in order to be with her.
Bridget Bordeaux and Jay Lindenwood did a great job with narration. Mr. Lindenwood has a great singing voice, I would’ve loved to hear more.
