AUTHOR: K.K. ALLEN
RELEASE DAY: SEPTEMBER 20, 2018
Center of Gravity, an all-new standalone emotional, Forbidden Sports Romance by K.K. Allen is NOW AVAILABLE!
I came to L.A. with dreams bigger than me.
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 I was literally shoved into the arms of the one man who could make or break my career.
Come to find out, it wasn’t my career I had to worry about.
It was my heart.
Everything about Alexandra “Lex” Quinn screamed amateur, save for the way she moved across the dance floor.
She was athleticism and grace, precision and passion, and she had a stage presence I couldn’t tear my eyes from.
I wanted her…on my team, in my bed.
There was only one problem…
I couldn’t have both.

“He was my preacher, and I was his loyal disciple, two seconds away from worship.”
K.K. Allen is one of my absolute favorite authors when it comes to romances and every book she releases only drives that home further. I have missed her writing so much that it literally felt like a huge part was missing from my life. She weaves such a magnificent web of emotions that I know I will fall in love with her characters no matter who they are. This book was no exception. I haven’t been in such an epic emotional rollercoaster in a long time. Center of Gravity has become one of my absolute favorite novels not just from K.K. but in general.
We follow, Lex, who is a magnificent dancer with high hopes for her career. She’s part of a dancing company with her best friend after leaving her entire life behind to chase her dreams. I fell for Lex from the start. I loved the way she carried herself and how despite her nerves and fear, she didn’t let that stop her from taking opportunities head on. She was such a marvelous character that it made me sad to know I can’t befriend her in the real world. Her character development was so satisfying that I couldn’t stop grinning from ear to ear.
I related to Lex’s experiences in such a personal level that it hurt to keep reading at times but I never wanted to stop. I’ve experienced some of the things she has myself and it felt like K.K. wrote this book just for me… even though I know she didn’t. This novel was quite triggering to me since I was just in a car accident so when I read about it, I knew exactly how Lex felt. It’s one of the most traumatizing experiences anyone can ever experience and I know I will be healing from it, both physically and mentally, for a long time yet, just like Lex.
This book also follows Theo, a famous choreographer who Lex has looked up to for what feels like forever. I absolutely loved Theo and his character development. He was so sweet and thoughtful that I couldn’t get enough of him. Of course, some of that was because he was extremely hot. Boy, Lex is such a lucky girl to have him. I would definitely be a super fan of his if I had the pleasure of watching him dance the way she does. I don’t know how she never fainted since I know I would have every single time he moved. It took me a little bit to fall for Theo the way I did but I ended up rooting for these two to get together so hard that I think I got lightheaded a few times from it.
This book came to me at the most perfect time ’cause I’ve been obsessed with watching dance videos on YouTube and Instagram for a while now. Thanks to this I was able to picture the dancing in my head perfectly. The good thing is that K.K. Allen includes links to dancing videos that relate to the current scene so anyone can picture the dancing themselves too.
I’ve always loved dancing but this novel has made me yearn to join a dancing company so I can maybe find my potential special someone in it.
Anyway, K.K. Allen always gives me hope with every novel she writes and I am grateful to be able to read them.
