My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I’m a sucker for single moms and pretty covers. It’s my first Ginger Scott read and overall I liked How We Deal with Gravity, it just needed to be polished a tad bit.
Avery is a single mom raising her son, Max who has autism. Mason is a singer/song writer and after a disastrous small tour, he’s back in town trying to figure out what his next step is. Avery and Mason grew up together, but were never friends. Avery’s always had a crush on Mason, but now she’s not the shy little girl she once was.
I loved Avery. I love strong moms and strong moms raising a slightly difficult child just makes my heart melt. I loved reading her POV and getting her insights on how she deals with Max because let’s face it, being a mom is tough, but being a single mom is tougher.
I’m on the fence with Mason. I guess I’m spoiled with famous sexy rockers or rich billionaires. There’s a sweet quality to Mason and it’s sad he had a bad tour and he’s coming back home with nothing, but it’s kind of pathetic. I know, I just wished he wasn’t so down in the dumps if you know what I mean.
I however liked the chemistry between Avery and Mason. I also liked how they grew up together so there’s that added character build-up I crave.
Mason first meets Max and Mason is kind of a jerk. I wasn’t fond of that, but I guess it’s to show Mason grow throughout the read. Avery is the strong mama bear and protects Max fiercely, which I love. How We Deal with Gravity is basically about two people at a crossroad in their life, but somehow they both look towards each other to better themselves.
At some parts it did drag and I wanted just a tiny bit more angst, but overall, it’s a sweet read and it will make your heart swoon.
