The Gravity of Us by Brittainy C. Cherry
Release Date: April 13th, 2017 Genre: Contemporary Romance
Cover Designer: Quirkybird Designs
Graham Russell and I weren’t made for one another.
I was driven by emotion; he was apathetic. I dreamed while he lived in nightmares. I cried when he had no tears to shed.
Despite his frozen heart and my readiness to run, we sometimes shared seconds. Seconds when our eyes locked and we saw each other’s secrets. Seconds when his lips tasted my fears, and I breathed in his pains. Seconds when we both imagined what it would be like to love one another.
Those seconds left us floating, but when reality knocked us sideways, gravity forced us to descend.
Graham Russell wasn’t a man who knew how to love, and I wasn’t a woman who knew how to either. Yet if I had the chance to fall again, I’d fall with him forever.
Even if we were destined to crash against solid ground.
"To be a man who felt everything. I wanted to hold her, but
still have her move freely in my arms. I wanted to taste her lips and breathe in a part of her soul as I gave her a glimpse of mine. I didn't want to be her friend-no. I wanted to be so much more."
"We weren't supposed to fall for one another, she and I.
Yet it seemed gravity had a way of pulling us closer."
Yet it seemed gravity had a way of pulling us closer."
Brittainy C. Cherry has a way of wrapping a story around my heart with her words. To feel a story well up in your body and the tears start running down my cheeks, I gasped a breath of air from the heartbreak. Yes, that happened to me many times throughout my read.
In this story we have Lucy and there is no way to not fall in love with her. She is the youngest of three sisters her free spirit ways will fill your heart with light, she is beautiful, forgiving and always there for others. Being around Lucy takes the darkness out of a room, I only wish someone she loved could see that. Lucy's love and heartbreak will have you wanting to dive into the story to protect and comfort her, but I felt the solace in her strength.
Graham Russell, has protected himself by hiding his emotions. He is broody, distant and a man of few words. When you look into his eyes you'll get the answers you want. His past broke me into many pieces, I began thinking it would be impossible for him to accept love. Graham will also slowly but surely put all those broken pieces together. I fell in love with him and I more than needed the HEA for this character.
The Gravity of Us may be a slow tease at romance and I kept waiting for the connection of two bodies. The more I read- I didn't miss it, because the connection of these two characters is being felt in every other way possible- heart and soul. I wish I could put into words all the emotions that went through me while reading, it's something that must be experienced. I have read The Air he Breathes and I loved it! After reading this story, I can't wait to lose myself into the two other books in the series. Brittainy C. Cherry, you amaze me with your writing and the way you pull at the heart strings. 5 have your box of tissues Stars must read!!!
LucyWe didn’t know how to act with one another after our first kiss. Our situation wasn’t the norm when it came to building a relationship. We did everything backward. I fell in love with a boy before our first kiss, and he fell for a girl who he wasn’t allowed to have. Our connection, our heartbeats, matched one another in our fairytale world, but in reality, society deemed us as an awful accident. Maybe we were an accident—a mistake. Maybe we were never supposed to cross each other’s paths. Maybe he was only meant to be a lesson in life and not a permanent mark. But still, the way he kissed me… Our kiss was as if heaven and hell collided together, and each choice was right and wrong at the same exact time. We kissed as if we were making a mistake and the best decision all at once. His lips made me float higher, yet somehow descend. His breaths somehow made my heart beat faster as it came to a complete halt. Our love was everything good and bad wrapped in one kiss. A part of me knew I should’ve regretted it, but the way his lips warmed up the cold shadows of my soul…the way he left his mark on me… I’d never regret finding him, holding him, even if we only had those few seconds as one. He’d always be worth those tiny seconds we shared. He’d always be worth that soul-connecting feeling we created when our lips touched. He’d always be the one I spent my nights dreaming of being near. He’d always be worth it to me. Sometimes when your heart wanted a full-length novel, the world only gave you a novella, and sometimes when you wanted forever you only had those few seconds of now. And all I could do, all anyone could ever do, was make each moment count. After we went home that night, we didn’t talk about it at all. Not the following week, either. I focused on Talon. Graham worked on his novel. I believed both of us were waiting for the right time to come up for us to speak about it, but that was the tricky thing about timing: it was never right. Sometimes you just had to leap and hope you didn’t fall.
