3.5 stars (I really wish I could do that for real.) I am not a big lover of having to weave thru the characters mind rants over and over again. While I love all of the action and intrigue and even the angst I have to admit it got a little repetitive. I understand Sophie had tons of garbage that had been dumped on her and she had crap for parents even as an adult they cast her to the side. However once Kipton and Cara's family and her real father jumped in and gave her the love and support she deserved she still spent way too much time in her head and was too quick to assume the worst. I'm not saying it's a bad read I mean this is the kind of stuff we all love and pay for with this author so I don't know why it got to me this time. I guess at this point I may need to concede it is all me. The author gives us danger and action and all the things that we come to love about her work.

I loved Sophie and Kipton in Lighter and couldn't wait to read more of their story in Weightless. As they prepared for the next phase of their relationship, I needed to know if they would be strong enough to handle the curveballs that I knew life would throw at them in their new long-distance situation. I dove right into this book and never looked back. Chapter 15 hit me like a ton of bricks. I totally did NOT see that coming! Sophie and Kipton were already struggling with some things and trying to find balance with their new lives. The events in Chapter 15 were not going to make things any easier, especially on Sophie. It felt like the story went into warp speed from that point onward. I loved watching Sophie grow stronger and make peace with her many demons. This book touched me deeply and I loved it. I am looking foward to reading more from Gia Riley.

This book is such a wonderful read! Lighter had been gripping and surreal, but beautiful. Weightless is still surreal, but hopeful and full of passion. The story begins during the summer after Kipton has graduated. Sophie is in her senior year and Kipton has accepted an offer to teach at another school…this means that they will be apart for longer than they ever imagined. Sophie understands that a relationship does have some rough patches and isn’t rainbows and butterflies all of the time…but Kipton isn’t ready to make that sacrifice yet. They decide that they will try to meet up on the weekends since Sophie, Cara and Drew have their own apartment for the semester and live off campus. When things spin out of control with Sophie and Kipton’s past relationships coming back to stare them down, Kipton and Sophie might not be strong enough to endure the pain and hardships that come with it. When reading this book, I really enjoy Cara and Drew so much! Both characters are fun and easy going, I really would love to read more about their connection. Kipton and Sophie’s relationship had been wonderful over the summer, but the jealousy that they soon came to see was a little immature. I am sure that some relationships happen just that way, but I hoped that these emotions would be short-lived since it was a little annoying. The passion that both of these characters have for their future is incredible and I loved reading about the ambition and spark in gymnastics and athletic coaching. Sophie’s father really played a strong and supportive role as well, which I did love. Family is important and the author made sure to emphasize that, no matter the cost. Another aspect about this story that I really enjoyed is that Sophie’s heart is GOLD! She cares about the people in her life, even though the people from her past did not show her the respect and love that she deserved or wanted. In my opinion, the story was a little predictable; however, it did not take away from the emotional turmoil or the way that the story developed in it’s own unique way. I really enjoyed love that author is able to take real problems that people face on a daily basis and weave them into her stories. It makes reading them so much more complex, captivating, and hopeful. I rate this book with five stars since it held my attention throughout the entire story. I feel that this book is targeted to young adult readers who enjoy fiction and contemporary romance. I didn’t have any trouble reading through the chapters since her words were very descriptive and easy to picture. The pace is steady; however, I do not recommend reading Weightless as a standalone. It would make a lot more sense to read Lighter which is book one, before heading into book two.

Actual Rating: 4.5 Stars! “I feel weightless when I’m with you–like I can do anything, go anywhere, and be anyone I want to be all because you love me” Weightless is the conclusion to Sophie and Kipton’s story. It picks up right where Lighter left off. Sophie and Kipton just spent the most amazing summer together, just enjoying each others company and really getting to know one another. Now that the summer has come to an end, their relationship will face the biggest challenge so far. Kipton has finished school and will be working closer to his hometown. Sophie will be going back to school without Kipton, to finish her final year. Many obstacles will lie ahead for Kipton and Sophie. Their relationship will be tested in many ways. Is Kipton and Sophie’s relationship strong enough to survive? Will they ever be free from their pasts? One of the things that I loved about Weightless was that we got to know more about Kipton. Kipton had a lot of obsticles to overcome. Not only was he dealing with a long distance relationship, which can be tough on anyone, but he also has to learn how to balance his career. You finally got to understand and see why Kipton behaved the way that he did in the past, especially when a part of his past comes to light. I really thought that Kipton’s character grew a lot since we first met him in Lighter. Sophie changed him. Being with Sophie showed him that he didn’t want to be the man that he used to be. He wanted to be a better man, someone that you could be proud of. And Sophie….Boy did she ever come a long way!! I couldn’t help but feel proud of her. This poor girl. She’s gone through so much. I just wanted her to have some peace and happiness. But, Sophie is not the same girl that we first met. Yes, she still has trouble discussing things that bother her and doesn’t want to burden anyone. But, she has so much more strength. She’s determined to not let her past win anymore. Weightless was a quick and easy read for me. I devoured Sophie and Kipton’s story. I couldn’t wait to read more and see how things would turn out. Sophie and Kipton took me on an such an incredible journey. My emotions are still all over the place. I loved watching their relationship grow and everything that the two of them had to go through. Weightless gave me everything that I was looking for and more. It had action, lots of drama, angst, steam, romance and some great twists and turns. The swoon factor was definitely kicked up a notch and I am left sitting here with a smile on my face. * I was provided an ARC copy of this book, in exchange for an honest review* You can also see my review at http://onceuponabookblog.com/2015/07/...
