Gravity by Melissa West

Gravity by Melissa West
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
By the Book: Amazon

Synopsis: 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 Review: This book was an awesome blend of dystopian, sci-fi, romance, and OMG just freaking coolness. Ari was a strong and totally bad-ass chick that you can't help root for and be like, "omg I wish I was like her". I felt a bit lost sometimes because some of the transitions in the book I felt were a bit inadequate. Apart from that, I can honestly say this book went higher than my expectations and I am very eager to read the second one.
