Book Review-Gravity-by Liz Crowe

About the book 
The Brewing Passion Series #4
by Liz Crowe
Publication Date: September 26, 2017
Genres: Adult, Contemporary, Romance
A unique new romance series set in the trending world of the craft brewery. Meet the owners, employees and friends of Fitzgerald Brewing as they live, love, lust and laugh their way through the ups, downs and sideways shifts of small business ownership.
When Brock Fitzgerald is welcomed back into his family thanks to the sympathy of his sister-in-law Evelyn and the tolerance of his twin brother, Austin, he understands that this may be the best he’ll ever get for himself. Years spent partying, drinking, and screwing his way through life have left him drained, exhausted, and accepting of his many weaknesses. He’s grateful for the second chance he’s been offered, even as he continues to battle his demons, including one that leads him back into co-dependency with his oldest girlfriend.
Kayla Hettinger never imagined that once she declared herself clean after several near-overdoses of opiates she’d find herself tending bar for her brother’s fiancée Melody, and enjoying what life she’d managed to build. When she strikes up a friendship with Brock over shared experiences and ginger ale, she discovers something needier and more frightening inside herself—and in Brock—than either of them feels equipped to handle.
Breaking through the clutter of addiction and despair only to find your soulmate waiting on the other side seems like the stuff of fairy tales—until Brock and Kayla accept that being dependent on one another is the only way they’ll survive.
And I thought
Hard to put into words my thoughts about Gravity

I work with young adult men that are incarcerated for drug/alcohol related felony offences.  I 'get it'.

Gravity is raw.  It is open.  It is real.  It is touching.  And for me

I didn't realize what I was getting myself into when I accepted the opportunity to review this book.  

I have only read one other book by this author.  I really enjoyed it so I expected to enjoy Gravity.  

And I did.  Surprisingly Liz Crowe is able to take topics that are hard to grasp and weave them into a story line that is compelling and interesting and hard to put down.  

This is not a book for the faint of heart.  This is not a book 
for people that have to consider certain triggers.  The story involves Addiction, Self Abuse and Recovery.  

I enjoyed this installment of the Brewing Passion series and look forward to reading more.  

I received a complimentary copy from Buoniamici Press.
This review will appear on Amazon and Good Reads.
