Review of ‘The gravity between us’ by Kristen Zimmer.
Audiobook narrated by Amy Melissa Bentley and Rebecca Estrella.

This was a perfect friends to lovers lesbian book. People who read my reviews know that I don’t give 5+ stars lightly. Honestly, I cannot fault this novel in any way, including my enjoyment. What a fantastic writer is Ms. Hale!
