Gravity by Melissa West
Published by:  Entangled Publishing
Releases TODAY!!!!!

In the future, only one rule will matter:

Don’t. Ever. Peek.

Seventeen-year-old Ari Alexander just broke that rule and saw the last person she expected hovering above her bed — arrogant Jackson Locke, the most popular boy in her school. She expects instant execution or some kind of freak alien punishment, but instead, Jackson issues a challenge: help him, or everyone on Earth will die.

Ari knows she should report him, but everything about Jackson makes her question what she’s been taught about his kind. And against her instincts, she’s falling for him. But Ari isn’t just any girl, and Jackson wants more than her attention. She’s a military legacy who’s been trained by her father and exposed to war strategies and societal information no one can know — especially an alien spy, like Jackson. Giving Jackson the information he needs will betray her father and her country, but keeping silent will start a war.

My teaser:

"'Danger lies with those who ignore the signs.'" eARC, Location 121-122

"It's like gravity disappears when he's around and I'm lost, no longer sure of anything." eARC, Location 126-126

I really enjoyed this book.  It was different, and it doesn't hurt that Jackson is strong and handsome!  Ari is a kick butt heroine, and I really enjoyed watching her strength and assurance.  This is definitely a quick read with a sweet romance, and I'm ready to see what Book 2 has in store for us.
