Goodreads Summary: Zoey Miller lives for her holidays in Aspen. Her time up on the mountain with the Madison brothers, Parker and Luke, is everything. But for the first time, it’s not enough. This time, she’s determined to win one of the brothers’ hearts.
But the brother she has in mind is a renowned player, with hordes of snow-bunnies following him around Snowmass resort. And the other…well, he’s her best friend and knows she deserves better. Namely him. And he’s going to win her heart.
I received an ebook ARC of Defying Gravity from Entangled TEEN Publishing in exchange for an honest review.
I always appreciate a good romance novel, but sometimes they can be a bit too risque for me personally. However, Defying Gravity has all of the right kinds of romance and the perfect amount of steamy moments!
This story is a bit stereotypical in the land of young adult romance – girl likes bad brother, and is best friends with good brother, but soon finds out that she loves the good brother, leaving the bad brother to go chase more girls – but who doesn’t love a good romance involving two good-looking brothers??
Highley has done a great job of creating compelling characters. I would have like to see Zoey in her normal Texas habitat to contrast with her Aspen self, but there was enough description there to get the gist. Parker and Luke are fantastic. As the reader, this story just gives you so many warm and fuzzy feelings.
From the cozy setting in Aspen, Colorado to the jaw-dropping and steamy moments between Parker and Zoey, Defying Gravity is a great teen romance! I’d love to continue reading more books in the Finding Perfect series.
