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

New Adult novel: recommended for 17+ due to mature themes and sexual content.

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…

I fell in love with this book from chapter one. Payton and Kendall’s love story was so raw it engulfed me. I read the book in a 24 hour period. There chemistry kept me turning each page faster than the next. When they were in pain I felt it myself and had tears rolling down my cheeks. Absolutely an incredible novel by far the best I’ve read in a long time.

on the flipside, just because a woman has long hair or wears skirts doesn’t mean she’s straight,

“It’s interesting how old this picture is and how much society has changed since it was taken.”

“What?” I’m so close to full-blown panic, I’m willing to bet it’s written all over my face. “What do you mean?”

“Like, back in the day,” she starts lightly. “I mean, she is clearly a woman,” she points at the print, “but she is dressed like a man. I suppose there had to be that, I don’t know that… dynamic back then. If it were a picture of two girls…” She’s getting flustered, blushing a bit, but she presses on. “Okay, say it were a picture of me and you. That caption, ‘Lesbian Couple at the Monocle,’ would have sent people’s heads spinning more than I’m sure it already did. Do you see what I’m saying? It’s like there had to be one feminine woman and one more masculine woman for it to have been understood that they were a couple.”

“Oh.” I want to say ‘what?’ again, but know I shouldn’t. “You’re talking about stereotypes?”

“Yes! That’s it! Like today, just because a woman has short hair or wears racer back tanks doesn’t mean she’s a lesbian.”

“And on the flipside, just because a woman has long hair or wears skirts doesn’t mean she’s straight,” I add.

“Right! Those notions don’t apply to the world anymore is what I was trying to say.”

“I get it. You can’t go by what a person looks like.”

“Exactly!”

Then it hits me. This is it. It’s now or never, put up or shut up. I’ve gotta go for it. “So, if I were to tell you that I’m gay, it wouldn’t be all that surprising—purely based on the fact that I have a feminine appearance.”

"Bu şəklin nə qədər köhnə olduğu və çəkildiyi vaxtdan cəmiyyətin nə qədər dəyişdiyi maraqlıdır."

"Nə?" Tamamilə çaxnaşmaya o qədər yaxınam ki, bunun hamısının üzünə yazılmasına bahəm. "Siz Nəyi nəzərdə tutursunuz?"

"Günortaya kimi" deyə yüngülcə başlayır. "Deməyim odur ki, o, açıq-aşkar bir qadındır" deyə çapda göstərdi, "ancaq kişi kimi geyinmişdi. Güman edirəm ki, bu olmalı idi, bilmirəm ... o zaman dinamik idi. İki qızın şəkli olsaydı ... "O, qızarır, biraz qızarır, amma davam edir. "Tamam deyin bu mənim və sizin bir şəkiliniz idi. "Monoklda Lesbian Cütlüyü" başlığı, insanların başlarını indidən etdiyimdən daha çox fırlanmasına səbəb olardı. Dediklərimi görürsən? Sanki bir qadın və daha bir kişi qadın olmalı idi ki, bunların cütlük olduqlarını başa düşsünlər. ”

"Oh" Yenidən 'nə?' Demək istəyirəm, amma bilməməliyəm. "Sən stereotiplərdən danışırsan?"

“Bəli! Bu belədir! Bu gün olduğu kimi, bir qadının qısa saçlı olması və ya irqçi tanklar geyməsi onun lezbiyan olduğunu göstərmir. "

"Və flipside, bir qadının uzun saçlı olması və ya yubka geyməsi onun düz olduğunu demir" deyə əlavə edirəm.

"Doğru! Bu anlayışlar artıq dünyaya şamil olunmur, demək istədiyim şeydir. "

“Mən alıram. Bir insanın görünüşünə görə gedə bilməzsən. "

"Tamam!"

Sonra məni vurur. Bu odur. İndi və ya heç vaxt, durma və ya bağlama. Bunun üçün getməliyəm. "Beləliklə, mən gey olduğumu söyləsəniz, bu, təəccüblü olmazdı - sırf qadın görünüşümə sahib olmağıma əsaslanır."
