I’ve always followed my dreams with ruthless determination.
My life was going well. Success was at my fingertips.
Until it wasn’t.
All it took was three seconds to send my world crashing down around me, ripping my dreams to shreds.
Then I meet her, with her large hazel eyes that slay me at first glance.
And everything starts to make sense again.
I try to keep my distance.
To remind myself I am her mentor.
That we can’t be more,
but every time I push away, I’m pulled deeper into her.
The line between student and teacher is blurring.
They’re all it would take to cross the line.

Breaking Gravity was more that I expected. So much more. I was overwhelmed.
This book hit all the things I love in romance, tortured, cocky characters, tough but with a big heart, loving their woman with all their being. The banter was incredible, from the passionate ones to the saddest ones, I was sold. My heart was beating through the rythym of Elon and Nate’s beautiful symphony, two hearts melting as one offering this magnificent, full of emotion and engaging story.
I could write pages about the characters, how amazing they were, with simplicity and natural. I read their story, utterly captivated and enthralled. I didn’t want to leave them.
Elon is a woman after my own heart. She may looks like a shy person, but the fire and quietness emanating from her, trying to be always in the right way, doing the right things could be a lot of pressure. After all her family went through, she was sure that HEA wasn’t in the books in her future. Music was everything, a way to escape the brutality and scars she was hiding for so long. Ashamed of her past, with the shadow of her own family’s history. Even with all those things that could break her, she was fierce, strong. I really fell in love with this character, sweet, kind, blunt and her ways to see the world, to fight for what she believed in, for her loved ones.
Oh my Nate … after all the teasing about this book, and glimpse of this character, I knew for sure that I would love him immensely and immediately. I wasn’t disappointed. Demanding, broody, intense. Right up my alley! I went from one surprise to another one. He is tormented, tortured, trying to fight his addiction. Living for the past three years in the darkness, one look, one moment, and suddenly his heart recognized another one tortured soul, a feisty red-haired, who could keep on his toes, but so forbidden at every levels.
What about their connection?? Fireworks aren’t enough to explain how mind-blowing they were together, and I’m just not talking about the sex. Because holy hot damn, when it came to these parts … there’s a special moment that made my jaw dropped, and I think I was kinda blushing reading that one. The fire they make … combusting, a mix of sensuality and passion.
I loved how their collided, the back and forth and ways to challenge each other was just marvelous. Somehow, they healed together. Their story was more than a student/teacher forbidden romance. It was a story that broke all the odds, giving you hope when you felt at your lowness, secretly desperate to find that one that could give you everything without reserve. That would fight for you and stand for you no matter what. Damn if the hopeless romantic in home wasn’t swept away.
Once I finished reading it, it just wanted to go back to the start. This book was just spectacular. A mix of sweetness and hotness, quirky and sassy. The kind of story that holds my attention until the end.
Two tortured souls who found each other. A music to my soul. A music of love. Unconditional love.
They made my heart soar so freaking much.
