Where does friendship stop and love begin?

At just 19, Kendall Bettencourt is Hollywood’s hottest young starlet with the world at her feet – but behind the glamour and designer dresses is a girl who longs for normal.

Payton Taylor is Kendall’s best friend since childhood, and the one person who reminds her of who she really is – her refuge from the craziness of celebrity life.

With her career taking off, Kendall moves Payton to LA to help keep her sane. But Payton is hiding a secret that could make everything ten times worse. Because to her, Kendall is more than a best friend – she is the only girl that she has ever loved.

Just as they need each other more than ever, they’ll have to answer the question of where friendship stops and love begins? And find out whether the feelings they have can survive the mounting pressure of fame…

The Gravity Between Us is a daring, romantic, emotional story about friendship, love, and finding the courage to be yourself in a crazy world.

New Adult novel: recommended for 17+ due to mature themes and sexual content

Music to Read to
by Kristen Zimmer

I’d like to take a minute to tell you a little something about me; there are three things in this world that I love more than anything— reading, writing, and music. For me, those last two things are always mutually inclusive (sometimes, I even write music.) More specifically, I usually listen to music of the electronic variety when I write; I don’t know what it is about the sweet cascade of heavy beats and melodious chords that makes electronic music the single most important environmental must-have when I sit down to write, but it is. I wouldn’t be able to type a single word without having a constant soundtrack playing in the background. That being said, I had an extensive iTunes playlist while I was writing The Gravity Between Us. Some of them were new tracks, some were older ones. Some songs reminded me of my characters and settings, and others were just feel-good tunes. If you plan to read The Gravity Between Us (and I hope you do; I’d be honored), why not try playing these select tunes in the backdrop to set the mood?
