Burning Through Gravity (Burning Through Gravity 1)

From the NEW YORK TIMES and USA TODAY bestselling author, Addison Moore…Cosmopolitan Magazine calls Addison’s books…easy, frothy fun!

BURNING THROUGH GRAVITY—they soared so high so fast they never expected the fall. Two beautiful souls. Two seemingly innocent deceptions. Once they meet, Stevie and Ford explode into one another in a ball of lust, hotter than a July moon. Ford is assertive, dominate and in control, that is until Stevie brings him to his knees. He thinks she’s the most beautiful woman he’s ever met both inside and out. Stevie thinks he’s sweet, and sort of goofy—of course it doesn’t hurt that he drips sex like honey. Stevie is starting to fall hard for Ford. And Ford is all in with Stevie. She wonders if he could ever forgive her for what she’s about to do. She wonders if she wants him to. They say love conquers all. But love never met two liars like Stevie and Ford. His lie cost her a few sleepless nights. Her lie will cost him everything.
