“If I could rewrite the rules, I’d do it for you.”
Lex came to Los Angeles with big dreams.
To learn from the best choreographers in the business and secure a professional dance gig working for Hollywood’s elite.
Everything was going according to plan—until she was shoved into the arms of the one man who could make or break her career.
Come to find out, it wasn’t her career she had to worry about.
It was her heart.
Theo didn’t work with with amateurs.
Then again, he’d never seen anyone move across a dance floor like Alexandra “Lex” Quinn.
She was athleticism and grace, precision and passion, and she had a stage presence he couldn’t tear my eyes from.
He wanted her…on his team, in his bed.
There was only one problem…
He couldn’t have both.
As a former dancer, raising a dancer this book immediately drew my attention. I was excited to read a book about dancers in their atmosphere and see how the author brought everything about. This author even included interactive links in her book to bring it more to life and I LOVED that. Even if you know nothing about dance you will not be left behind in this book.
I don’t know why but every time I pictured Theo I pictured Travis Wall even though I haven’t ever seen him do any kind of hip hop style. Theo is obviously hardened by the industry, which I mean who wouldn’t be you have to have a tough skin to work in it. He unfortunately takes it out on everyone around him. Some things in his life have taken the spark out of his dancing life but that may change. I personally did not like some of the choices he did make in this book, but it showed he was human and need to evolve and change. The fact that he decides to put someone else well being ahead of his own shows that he might just be ready to do that emotional leap. It was nice how he respected Lex’s space when she asked for it while dancing and didn’t push.
Lex was a really sweet and wholesome which was nice. Her best friend Shane was also really amazing and I adored him. I didn’t understand how Lex grew up in a dance world but didn’t have any backbone concerning competing at all. Some dancers and choreographers can be unfairly cruel and since Lex had been dancing almost all of her life she should be used to this part already. I liked how she didn’t know exactly how good she was, I have met plenty of dancers that didn’t know quite how good they were naturally. I feel like maybe she was a mix of the movie Honey with Jessica Alba and Julia Stiles from Save the Last Dance.
This book was a little long, however making choreography and setting up for a tour takes time so I can see why the author would want this to span over time. I really enjoyed so much about this book, the angst was really good and so was the romance. I can see some typical tropes in it but that is okay with me, I like tropes.

One thought on “Center of Gravity (Gravity #1), by K.K. Allen”
I bet there’s a Travis Wall hip hop routine somewhere on YouTube. They’re has to be one from SYTYCD.
I’m happy to hear you liked this one. I read KK Allen’s Far from the Tree and Underneath the Bleachers and liked them.
