Book Tour: Defying Gravity by Kendra C. Highley Review & Giveaway!
Follow Along with the Defying Gravity Blog Tour!
If you’re a fan of contemporary YA romance novels in general and either the best friends to lovers or the brothers fighting over the same girl tropes, then you’ll love Defying Gravity by Kendra C. Highley! And of course, if you’ve already read Finding Perfect, the first book in the Finding Perfect series, then you’ll definitely not want to miss this one. Even though Zoey’s story can be read as a standalone without any problem, you’ll already know her, her BFF Paige, and Paige’s boyfriend, Ben, if you read and loved Finding Perfect, which will make this book even more enjoyable!
This was so cute!
I’m a sucker for wintery romance and best friends turned boyfriend/girlfriend, so this really hit the spot for me. It was well written, fast paced, and put a smile on your face as soon as you started reading. Mostly because you met Parker first (and Parker is my favorite). He is truly the best friend every girl wishes she can have. Not to mention – gorgeous (but I had to mention because of reasons). I liked him right away.
As I did not read the first book in this companion series, Zoey was a new character to me. I did enjoy her, but at times she made me crazy. But I guess good characters do that to you or they’re not truly realistic.
Luke wasn’t all that likable, but he was written that way, so good job, Kendra!
There were a few places where I just wanted to scream at them for just get it together already, but I did enjoy the relationships overall.
I also really liked the setting of this one and needed a good “snow romance”. It was like Christmas in July!
Overall, this was a cute read, with good characters and just enough of adorable moments to make your toes curl. If you’re looking for a quick, cute read, this is definitely it.
