Sadly, as much as I liked the story, this audiobook just felt sloppy. I thought both narrators did a fine job (though I enjoyed Jay Lindenwood's performance more), but the sound quality was pretty horrible. Their voices seemed muffled or perhaps too close to the microphone and there was some kind of background noise that was very distracting. I wanted to know what happened in the story though, so I actually started reading the book instead of listening to it exclusively. Because of that, I noticed that at least in one chapter (chapter 8), an entire chunk of text is missing at the end. I'm not sure if it accidentally got cut or was added into the book later, but it's definitely not in the audiobook. That chapter still ends in a normal manner and you likely wouldn't even notice anything is wrong, but it was such an emotional chapter/scene and that missing dialogue and interaction was so heartfelt. There also seemed to be some editing mistakes (ie: repetition of words/sentences) and some speed issues. All these things really took away from the enjoyment of this book.
Though I didn't love the story, it hooked me right in and I had to know what became of childhood best friends/lovers Lily and Trevin. I feel terrible giving it such a low rating, but I really don't want others to have to experience these issues. Gravity deserves a much better audio version than this.

This is truly a book with all the feelings. Lily and Trev meet when they're 8 years old and become best friends. It's a roller coaster ride of emotions when they go from friends to lovers then back to friends. Trev is a rock star while Lily is a good girl that doesn't fit into his world. The plot is good and the love they feel is so real. Can they really work through this or find a HEA with someone else? Have some tissues handy!
