“Absolutely addictive! I was captivated until the very end.”
—Penelope Douglas, New York Times bestselling author
“The writing is absolutely beautiful. The way Stevenson always knows the right way to describe the twists and turns shows that she’s the real deal. She’s very eloquent in every aspect of her storytelling.”
—Southern Belle Book Blog
“This is no cliché student-teacher romance. It’s not light and fluffy. It’s real. It’s genuine. It truly depicts the life of a teenager who deals with real life issues with friends, her family, and of course love. Force of Gravity grabs you from the very first page. You will not want to put this one down.”
—Biblio Belles Book Blog
“The writing in this story is rather consuming. It’s not often enough that a book grabs you from the very first page and doesn’t let up. This story reads like it flowed effortlessly from this author. That doesn’t happen often in this writing climate and when I find it, I feel like I discovered a gem.”
—Angie & Jessica’s Dreamy Reads
“[Stevenson] has done a wonderful job of taking a taboo subject…and turning it into something extraordinary and beautiful. [Stevenson] was able to grip my heart and my soul with her words, make me feel for these characters, paint a picture for me, make me laugh and cry in the same chapter, and fill my heart with joy.”
—Who Picked This? Book Blog
“I am a sucker for student-teacher books and while some of them fall flat, Force of Gravity did not. The writing is so fantastic that you feel each and every emotion first hand….I wanted to call in sick and just hide under the covers and read….The feelings and emotions jumped off the page from the very beginning and kept hold of me until the very last word of the epilogue.”
—One Chick Bliss
“This may be my favorite student-teacher romance….This book totally took me by surprise….It had a realness that I think is missing in many [New Adult] romance novels. This is a fantastic debut from Kelly Stevenson and I cannot wait for the sequel.”
—Love Between the Sheets
I slip through the crowd, keeping a focused stare on Mr. Slate. He’s still leaning against the wall with his hands comfortably in his pockets, no longer looking my way. With my shoulders back, I step in front of him, sliding a hand on my hip.
“What the hell was that about?” I shout through the blaring music.
“Kaley,” he says, glancing around the ballroom. “What are you doing?” His voice is firm, but quiet.
“What am I doing?” I spit out. “I’m dancing with my boyfriend at prom, what are you doing?”
He lifts a shoulder. “I’m chaperoning.”
“Is that all?” I ask.
“I have no idea what you’re talking about,” he says, peering down his nose at me.
I step closer, meeting him squarely in the eye. “Really? Because it looks like you’re enjoying my dress, Mr. Slate.”
Anger flashes through his eyes as he steps forward, away from the wall. “Kaley, stop,” he warns. He folds his arms and scans the room over my head. “Just walk away.”
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. . . .
