All eyes are on Josh Knoxโ€ฆ
Fearless. Guarded. Cut-to-perfection. Daredevil rock climber. The best in the world.

This time heโ€™s poised to scale Yosemiteโ€™s notoriously treacherous Sorcerer Spire, with Walkabout Media & Productions filming every move.

April Stephensโ€™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.

๐Ÿ—ป๐ŸŒ„ABOUT MEGAN WESTFIELD๐ŸŒŒโ›บ๏ธ
Megan Westfield has dabbled in many hobbies and pastimes over the years, ranging from playing the cello to cake decorating (i.e., icing-eating) to a dozen different outdoor adventure sports. Eventually, she discovered the only wayto do it all was though writingโ€”her first and strongest passion. She writes new adult fiction because she loves exploring the powerful and formative years between high school and the quarter-life crisis. As a reader, her favorite books are those with a truly unique, real-world setting, and, of course, a love story.
Megan grew up in Washington state, attended college in Oregon, and lived in Virginia, California, and Rhode Island during her five years as a navy officer. She is now a permanent resident of San Diego where she and her husband count family beach time with their two young kids as an adventure sport. Megan was formerly the editor of a small weekly newspaper in Southern California and is represented by Melissa Edwards of Stonesong Priest Literary Agency.

EXCERPT ~~
Josh was still over on the tailgate, pressing his fingers along the top of his laptop like it

was a ledge on a climbing route. The wind whipped her ponytail and blew her bangs into her eyes.

It was all for the best, she reminded herself. Seriously, what did she think would happen

here today? That heโ€™d push her against the side of his truck and kiss her like in Gone With the

Wind?

โ€œOkay, well, Iโ€™ll see you tomorrow,โ€ she called.

His fingers froze on the edge of the laptop. His eyes were large and troubled.

โ€œI have the pictures that go with the speech,โ€ he said.

โ€œDo you want to see them?โ€

Sheโ€™d already seen the pictures, last week, when she mailed a CD of them to Vera. He

had to know April would have checked them over before sending them.

Hope rose up and filled her chest.

Yes. He had to know sheโ€™d already seen them, but he had still asked. This was a good

sign. Maybe he wasnโ€™t mad. Maybe he wanted her to stay as much as she did. If she was smart,

she would leave now. She would go back to the Walkabout campsite immediately.

โ€œYouโ€™re right. I guess I should take a look.โ€

She climbed back on the tailgate, this time letting her legs swing free. He set the laptop

between them, and she had to scoot closer to support her side of it.

Although sheโ€™d seen the pictures before, tonight she saw them in a new light. These

werenโ€™t at all like the action photos that dominated climbing magazines. These were pictures of

sunbursts behind jagged rock-and-ice Sierra peaks, pristine alpine rivers, and vistas from the

eastern reaches of the park down into wide deserts, breathtaking views of the park as it could

only be seen from the sides of its trademark formations, thousands of feet in the air. Views she

had gotten a taste of only because sheโ€™d been to Flying Sheep Lake. His photos were of solace,

beauty, and peace.

Freedom. Reverence. Challenge. Commitment. Exploration.

As Josh arrow-keyed through the pictures, his arm was floating above her bare thigh. He

stopped clicking, and she prayed it wasnโ€™t because he could hear how fast her heart was beating.

โ€œWhat happened to your hands?โ€ he asked.

She looked down at them, wondering if she had been fidgeting.

โ€œLooks like you crawled through razor wire.โ€

Indeed, her palms were a patchwork of torn blisters and fiery splotches. Her fingertips

were hatched with scratches.

โ€œMadigan is teaching me how to ascend,โ€ she said.

He raised an eyebrow.

โ€œIโ€™m filming on the Sorcerer.โ€

He looked surprised. โ€œYou are?โ€

She thought he knew. โ€œAre you okay with it?โ€

โ€œMight be kind of a distraction.โ€

Danny should have asked Josh before changing up the plan on the climb!

He elbowed her. โ€œIโ€™m joking, April.โ€

She laughed like she had known it all along.

As they looked at a few more of his pictures, she was grateful for the warmth of the

laptop on her leg. She was still dressed for the daytime heat, but it was getting chilly with the

approach of sunset, and the winds were stronger than usual. Josh grabbed his gray hooded

sweatshirt from the back of the truck and held it as she slipped her arms into the sleeves. The

softness of the sweatshirt and the intensity of his familiar scent weakened her knees. It was

almost as if she had him wrapped around her.

He cocked his head. โ€œItโ€™s a little big.โ€

She pushed the sleeves up and connected the zipper at the bottom. It got stuck midway

up.

โ€œSorry, itโ€™s really old,โ€ he said. โ€œBut thereโ€™s a trick.โ€

He carefully reached for the zipper pull, tugged down twice, wiggled it, then yanked it

the rest of the way up. Her goose bumps from the cold refreshed themselves with goose

bumps from his touch.

REVIEW ~~

LESSONS IN GRAVITY by Megan Westfield

โ€ขHeartbreaking Intricate Love Story

April’s dream is to be a documentary filmmaker, she’s lucky enough to have an internship with Walkabout Media & Productions to make that dream come true. However her chore is to get Josh Knox the infamous rock climber who prefers to free solo instead of climbing with the safety of a rope, to open up and give more than one worded clipped answers during an interview. Would she be able to break through his interview pretentiousness? Is it him or is it her? If it’s him, why is he like this, is the camera an instant switch for “Jerk Josh”?(*direct book quote) April is able to crack his exterior but falls for him in the process. After what happened to her father, how will she be able to handle his choices? Will she be able to do the added job Danny’s asked of her?
Josh climbs rocks without a care in the world, or so it seems, what’s really going on within and around him? No one else has gotten him to open up like this ever, now it’s time to be filmed climbing Sorcerer Spire with its sharp twisting tower, without a rope. *Sorcerer rose from the valley floor to the sky in an uninterrupted swoop. But unlike El Capitan and the other formations, the rock of the Sorcerer was nearly black.(*direct book quote). *โ€œIs it normal to climb ropeless?โ€ she asked. Madigan laughed. โ€œNo. Itโ€™s not normal. Only the crazies and the insanely good do it. When you climb without a rope, itโ€™s one wrong move and youโ€™re toast.โ€ โ€œTechnically, heโ€™ll be free BASEing. Climbing with a parachute in a backpack. It could save him if he falls from high enough, if he pulls the cord fast enough.โ€ (*direct book quote).
What happens between Josh & April? How does his Sorcerer climb go? You’ll have to read LESSONS IN GRAVITY to find out, but man will it be worth the time it takes for you to read it! It’s an EXTREMELY EXHILARATING and emotionally filled story that’ll have you laughing, crying, smiling, and falling throughout. This is my first, but definitely not my last Megan Westfield story; what e debut novel! I received an ARC via IndieSage through NetGalley in exchange for a blog tour review. Due to sexual situations, this book is recommended for readers 16 and older.

  1. Thanks so much for being a part of this blog tour and I enjoyed your thoughts about the book and the passages you picked out as favorites. I love to do that with books I read too.
