Gravity (The Taking #1)

In the future, only one rule will matter:

Don’t. Ever. Peek.

Seventeen-year-old Ari Alexander just broke that rule and saw the last person she expected hovering above her bed — arrogant Jackson Locke, the most popular boy in her school. She expects instant execution or some kind of freak alien punishment, but instead, Jackson issues a challenge: help him, or everyone on Earth will die.

Ari knows she should report him, but everything about Jackson makes her question what she’s been taught about his kind. And against her instincts, she’s falling for him. But Ari isn’t just any girl, and Jackson wants more than her attention. She’s a military legacy who’s been trained by her father and exposed to war strategies and societal information no one can know — especially an alien spy, like Jackson. Giving Jackson the information he needs will betray her father and her country, but keeping silent will start a war.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This was a marvelous book! Hot aliens who want peace and humans who want war. Only Ari and Jackson can stop the war from happening, assuming they keep their emotions in check. ;) The only other books about aliens I have read is the Lux Series by Jennifer L. Armentrout. Those were amazing books, but this is totally different. The world is all for the Aliens Taking and the only thing stopping them from coexisting, and I mean living together in peace, are the humans. They want to kill the aliens, but not everyone thinks that way, especially Ari. She is the daughter of a man who is making weapons to kill the alien known as Ancients. I can understand why this book was praised so well. Absolutely amazing. I can't wait for my Taking!
