GRAVITY by Melissa West - November 20th 2012 from Entangled Teen

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.



1. Describe Ari in 5 words.

She's stubborn and frustrating and...smart, brave--perfect.

2. If you could take Ari on a date anywhere, where would you go and why?

I prefer to be away from everyone, just she and I, with nothing to distract us from each other.

3.What's your favourite thing about Ari?

She's selfless in every way.

4. What's your favorite part about being an Ancient? Least favorite part?

We're hyperaware of our surroundings. Unlike humans, who tend to only see what they want to see. Least favorite part? Right now, it's that Zeus is our leader.

5. Did Fred and Ryan's relationship came to you easily? Like you knew exactly what kind of a couple they were before writing HOOKED?

I regret not trusting Ari's strength. I thought I needed to protect her, when really she doesn't need protection. She's her own protector.
