Gravity Is Only $0.99!
Gravity by Mona Sedrak a testament to the power of love, both romantic and family. It takes great strength and courage to step out of your comfort zone and love one another. Leila is one of the most courageous heroines I've had the pleasure to read. Mona Sedrak takes on a very personal story and opens the reader's eyes to the struggle many single mums face. Emotional narration, especially from the point of view of Leila, is raw, naked and sometimes painful to read but irresistible, nonetheless. The romance between Leila and Aiden is gradual and I thoroughly enjoyed reading it. There's a lot of intense situations going on in Gravity but Mona Sedrak writes them with such poignancy, I loved it. One of the best books I've read this year. Highly recommend! N.N. Light
