Description

At just 19, Kendall Bettencourt is Hollywood's hottest young starlet, with the world at her feet - but behind the glamour and designer dresses is a girl who longs for normal. Payton Taylor is Kendall's best friend since childhood and the one person who reminds her of who she really is. With her career taking off, Kendall moves Payton to LA to help keep her sane. But Payton is hiding a secret that could make everything 10 times worse. Because to her, Kendall is more than a best friend; she is the only girl that she has ever loved. Just as they need each other more than ever, they'll have to answer the question of where friendship stops and love begins - and find out whether the feelings they have can survive the mounting pressure of fame.

Good story...narrators detract

This is a good story, not incredibly deep, but entertaining. I enjoyed it, but wasn't completely drawn in, possibly because Hollywood glitz isn't my thing or maybe because the characters are so young. But I've read other books where the characters young and really liked them. The real distraction to the story, however, were the narrators. One sounded incredibly young (her teen-aged tendency to pronounce Peyton as Pay-un was irritating) and the other sounded way too mature, like she could be the other girl's mother. As the book is written in first person, switching back and forth between the characters, the narrators changed. It felt like a 13-year-old reading, then her mom reading. It really killed the chemistry between the characters.

Good Chapters in Search of a Book

It feels strange to say it but the first six hours of this story which passed at the pace of LA traffic was actually the high point. This, even though it included such highly questionable occurrences as Hollywood virgins. Then there were the all the cliches about the pseudo glitz and glamour of Hollywood, LA, the movie business, the paparazzi, agents, publicists and the partridge in the pear tree. Peyton's yearning for the girl she knows that she can't have is so close to my own experience that I had no problem trouble relating to her helplessness and despair.
No the really low point is Kendall; one of the two major characters in the book turns out to be a total chicken**** unworthy of the love continually offered to her by her childhood friend Peyton. It doesn't appear to be too realistic that anyone with as much going for them as Peyton would settle for the crumbs offered to her by Kendall for as long as she did. Love must be buttressed by respect to be real and it's hard to understand how Peyton would be able to respect her.
There is also the issue of the narrators; particularly the one doing the voice for Peyton. Both of them too often sound as if they're reading to a classroom full of third graders. However if you're a sucker for lesbian love stories you'll probably be able to find the high points in this one.

Good...

Good story...I actually read the book and then gave the audio book a try...I would have enjoyed it much more if they had stuck with one Narrator, preferably the woman who voiced Kendall! The woman who voiced Peyton was not good at all and really ruined it for me. I would give one Narrator a 5 and the other a 2!

Really bad narration. and slow story

this story was extremely slow and I did not find myself drawn in at all. also The narrator's Voice bothered me the entire time. It was just not enjoyable. Sorry.

A little too petulant

I really love this story but the person who was the voice of Payton was far too snarky and petulant while the voice of Kendall was smooth and channeled her energy. If you can get through the voice of Payton it’s a sweet story.

Love this genre of books!

Would you try another book from Kristen Zimmer and/or Amy Melissa Bentley and Rebecca Estrella ?

Not likely to read another Kristen Zimmer book. While I love this genre of books and I loved the storyline for “The Gravity Between Us” I didn’t feel the book was very well written and the narrators were not well suited.

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Gravity Between Us?

When Kendall professed her love to Payton and outed herself to the world.

What didn’t you like about Amy Melissa Bentley and Rebecca Estrella ’s performance?

The performances while individually were good the two narrators were not suited to represent one another as young lovers. One voice being young and vibrant and the other being much more mature. It seemed like the two characters should have had a significant age gap between them.

Do you think The Gravity Between Us needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

Not really, I believe the story ended where it should have.

Wow!

I wasn’t sure what I was expecting. It was a great love story! Sometimes even when you love someone...you will sacrifice everything for them!

It was OK.

I didn't love this book. It was OK. Another "I'm in love with my best friend and don't know how to tell her" story. Some parts of this book was very similar to Camryn Eyde's The tricky series. I didn't research which book was written first, but the tricky series tell a better story after you get use to the narrator's voice.

The two narrators in The gravity between us contrasted dramatically with each other. One reviewer described the two voices as mom and daughter and I totally agree with that description. The older sounding mom voice probably would have suited the character Peyton better than the other character. Or perhaps having only one narrator would have been better for this book.

Nevertheless, thank you Ms. Zimmerman for your novel. Keep them coming.

Extremely sweet, but problematic at times

The book starts with two teenagers that are kind of hard to like, but once they get past the queen bee, prom queen impression early on they become quite likeable, and they have a very cute romance that gives you all the feels.
Unfortunately there are problematic elements, like repeated use of the r-word though, which might bother some people too much to enjoy the story.
I'd say it's better than it's bad, but it's something to be aware of.

A reading job very well done!

both female readers did an incredible job, sounding both pleasant and convincing. I expected them to give voice to the two main characters. instead, each chapter is from either Kendall's or Pay's point of view, read by one or the other reader. so even after a pause in listening you always know which character's POW it is. Their voices are very distinct and fit each character. Only downside to giving this little review is, I can't give 6 stars! =]
