 Mikaela was never a woman who could be considered independent. At least not in the social norms. As it was, today was yet another day of tearing out the floors in an old house. Gaudy blue carpet, which was matted and stapled to water-damaged plywood. A gross and dusty floor, which she’d been sleeping on for days. Mikaela gave the floor one final stare of dismiss, before she crouched down and jabbed a crowbar beneath the plywood, aiming specifically for the t-nails someone had sporadically shot into the floor. She took three deep breaths, and lifted with all her might from the hips. Her forearms rippled against the strain, and she groaned in pain, until the nails ripped from the floor with several loud pops. She peeled off her dusty ski goggles, and gazed at the skeleton wood beneath, with a large cheeky grin.

Dust and sheetrock smothered oversized sweatpants, fitted over a pair of black jeans. And a wool sweater with large moth holes guarded her only black v neck shirt. Her dark wavy brown hair was tied in a bun and cast beneath a black beanie. And her work boots were caked with paint and dust. Like always, she’d borrowed some beat- up clothes from an employer, and threw them over the only clothes she had. This was the life she chose, to be a writer. A traveling vagabond with a knack for carpentry. She flipped buildings for shelter, and some pay, if pay could be given. As long as she had time to write, and the carpentry didn’t get too far in the way, she was content. But let’s be honest, anything that’s not writing, is in the way. And content isn’t the same as happy.

Vince, a burly blonde man, peeled his safety glasses off, and nodded to Tommy, who about the same age, was also graying to the point, where although they were completely different people, they looked like brothers. Brothers in ripped jeans and sweaters, with dabs of paint everywhere. Layers and layers of clothing, and beanies with bits of ceiling and sawdust.

“You see that?!” Vince laughed, gesturing in Mikaela’s direction.

“Yup!” Tommy shouted past a set of ear protectors. “96 pounds of badass!” He’d gone to war with the cement floor in the basement, and had just finished with the jackhammer, when he walked into the living room to see Mikaela tackling the last of the floor.

Where does friendship stop and love begin?

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 , her refuge from the craziness of celebrity life.

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 ten 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

The Gravity Between Us is a daring, romantic, emotional story about friendship, love, and finding the courage to be yourself in a crazy world.

Praise for The Gravity Between Us

'The characters here are so likeable that I was desperate for them to get together, but it's clear to see why they were hesitant about taking such a major step after being friends for so long. Speaking of likeable characters, there's a wonderful supporting cast, and it's really interesting to read a novel with so many well-drawn and sympathetic people in it. The tension - and there's plenty of it - comes from the balance between the pair's feelings for each other and the challenges Kendall faces, especially, as an A list celebrity trying to deal with the paparazzi and adoring fans I also thought the Hollywood setting was very well described and felt incredibly realistic. It's also got one of the best endings I've read for ages, which had me jumping to my feet I was so excited.

Overall, this is certainly the best New Adult book I've read. Massive recommendation for all.'BookBag

'The Gravity Between Us is a fantastic read--humorous, romantic and daring. Kristen's writing style is engaging and honest. In Payton and Kendall, she's succeeded in creating characters whom you care about instantly. And her portrayal of their relationship is beautifully rendered. I loved the Hollywood angle, the question of how one learns to deal with other people's reactions to same sex relationships and the idea of the zany game that is celebrity.

For me, The Gravity Between Us is a must-read new adult novel! I can't wait to read Kristen Zimmer's next book!' 5 Stars!Kimtalksbooks.com

'Tackling some hard subjects, this book was a wonderful foray into the world of the New Adult genre for me. It was a fast paced read for me because I found the characters so engaging. Because I liked the characters so much, I really wanted to see if they were going to end up together!' A Bookish Affair

'I hope this book calls to you the way it called to me. And if/when you do read it, I hope you laugh and get all sappy and emotional the way I did too.'SmiBookClub.com
