He’s the last person she should be falling for.
All eyes are on Josh Knox…
Fearless. Guarded. Cut-to-perfection. Daredevil rock climber. The best in the world.
This time he’s poised to scale Yosemite’s notoriously treacherous Sorcerer Spire, with Walkabout Media & Productions filming every move.
April Stephens’s dream to be a documentary filmmaker rests on her acing her internship with Walkabout, and that means getting the abrasive Josh to give her more than one-word answers in his interviews.
The problem is, with every step forward professionally, she and Josh are also taking a step forward personally, and after watching her stunt pilot father die in a fiery crash, a guy who risks his life for a living is the last person she should be falling for. Especially because in one month her internship will have them dangling three thousand feet in the air from the side of the Sorcerer. She’ll be filming. He’ll be climbing without a rope.

When it comes to a daredevil I am like a bee round a honeypot and Lessons in Gravity brings us fearless rock climber, Josh Knox.
This is a superb debut from Megan Westfield and she delivers a character driven story which gathers pace as the storyline progresses. The blurb is what sold thi... ...more
This is such a unique and emotionally charged story. Lessons in Gravity is so much more than a romance. The author did a fantastic job with the rock climbing aspects. It's clear she has experience in this sport. There were so many adrenaline-filled, edge-of-your-seat moments that had my palms swe... ...more

This was such a cute romance novel. It's a clean one too, which I did not expect at all. The main theme is about fear and how it can hold you back from love and from life. It's such a great message. Very rarely do I see a book with a go... ...more
Wow, this is one adventurous story. I loved it! Story was quite interesting and so were all the characters. It was an adventurous book. Josh is a daredevil and April is a worrier. They're an unlikely couple. It was a slow read for me, I took in everything, enjoyed learning about the char... ...more
I used to be a book reviewer, so I guess it’s only fitting that I do the same for my own book. ☺ My favorite part of a book review is speculating on who might enjoy the book, so let’s start with that.
In Lessons in Gravity, I tried to write the type of book I love to read (a book that has an irre... ...more

How gorgeous is this cover?!
From the first page, I got sucked into this wonderful world of rock climbing, documentary filmmaking, and the beauty of Yosemite National Park. I liked both April and Josh immediately, though I de... ...more
I fell absolutely in love with the picture the author painted from this beautiful landscape.
I was lucky enough to be able to not only imagine what the author was talking about but to experience it as well. Sleeping in the Yosemite national park (and some other parks during our holiday) was one o... ...more

I LOVED this book!! For one it dealt with a topic that I had no prior knowledge of and had never read about in any other book… rock climbing!... ...more
Megan Westfield's use of rocky mountains, dangerous cliffs and turbulent emotions were essential to the plot line of Lessons in Gravity. Josh and April use their careers as shields. Both are running away from hard to face issues. The problem is no matter how fast they run and how far they escape,... ...more
This is such an amazing story. The author was able to make us feel the excitement, the thrill, the adventure of climbing Yosemite that it makes me want to experience that myself. This story also made me feel the pain and sorrow of losing someone you love. But it also made me feel alive! The energ... ...more
This was a sweet read for me. I liked the concept of the book. How April and Josh were both able to overcome their fears and find the meaning of love while doing so. It had me in tears a couple of places, laughter in others and the desire to learn how to rock climb like a rockstar.

*This is a first-pages review by CM McCoy for North of Normal Book Reviews *
Shivers and urgency!
Opening this romance with a full-bladdered, tent-camping chill was brilliant. There’s this subtle humor juxtaposed with a heartbreaking burden of grief AND a good old-fashioned, morning-cold-of-tent-c... ...more
I can honestly say I haven't read any romances with climbing involved. Sure I've read books with some of the more adventurous sports, like snowboarding, motor biking, etc but never anything with rock climbing. I think the reason why this book appealed to me so much is two fold, one I kind of have......more
April has always dreamed of being a documentary filmmaker and is currently interning with Walkabout in order to finish her degree.

Lessons in Gravity is such a magical read. I really, really loved this one. In fact, I think it is one of my favorite reads of the year. Lessons in Gravity is a new adult contemporary romance between a famous rock cl... ...more
This was a sweet book. It had a brilliant little romance to it, but it wasn’t overpowering, so you didn’t feel as though the whole book was just about their building romance. I like that. I know it isn’t for everyone and trust me I am a fan of Bam There’s Your Sex novels, but I also love ones whe... ...more
Unique romance set-up using a rock-climbing theme but also deals with some sensitive issues.
Lessons in Gravity was my first book by Megan Westfield so I had no idea what to expect but I overall enjoyed this book. Lessons in Gravity is a clean type of contemporary romance that had plenty of emotio... ...more

Lessons in Gravity is Megan Westfield’s debut novel and an amazing start to a very promising writing career. This author was able to write a very wholesome (teen an... ...more
Lessons in Gravity was a really good romantic story. All the rock climbing info kind of went over my head because I know absolutely nothing about that activity, but that didn't hinder my enjoyment of the overall story. I really loved all the characters. And I mean all of them, not just April and... ...more

If you are looking for a hot and heavy romance novel, this is not the book for you. What it is, though, is a cute and clean story about a girl with a fear, that is holding her back from life and love.

I basically devoured this book. It's the story of April, an intern on a rock climbing documentary, and Josh, the star of both the film and the rock climbing world at large. April recently lost her father and has PTSD from witnessing his traumatic death, and Josh is rude and extremely difficult to... ...more
This was a very enjoyable sweet clean read. The characters are very likeable and the plot intriguing. I wish there had a been a bit more passion and fire between these two but overall it was a very entertaining read.
