“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.
To be totally honest, sometimes you just need a cheesy romance novel to get you through the day. During my fall break I was able to actually get through reading and books and enjoy them. I think with school stuff going on, it’s been so hard to let myself enjoy reading lately, well the last year and a half. But now that school is basically done (I’m just finishing my student teaching), I’m finding myself able to relax and enjoy reading more. I got Kindle Unlimited for free because of Prime Day and decided to tackle some of the things on my to read list that were on there because why not. Force of Gravity was one of them.
This book follows Kaley who falls in love with her math teacher. One thing I liked about this book is that Kaley was 18 the entire time this was happening, I feel weird as a future teacher, reading books with underage students. It just doesn’t feel ethical and everything feels all sorts of wrong, but this one I could just let myself sit back and enjoy. One of my favorite things about cheesy romance books is that I can let myself sit back and relax and laugh a little at the cheesyness but it just feels good to read. This was one of those books. It was a perfect palate cleanser of a book that wasn’t super serious, but allowed me to dive in and keep turning the pages. It looks like the author has been going through some medical issues, which has delayed the release of the rest of the series, but I find myself actually excited to read more.
