Series: Elements #4
Published by Self-Published on 04/13/2017
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.
For some reason, I have this pre-conceived notion that I should be afraid of Brittainy C. Cherry’s books. I have no idea where it came from, but it’s there and I’m a big baby. I have to give myself a mental pep talk to read books that I think are going to hurt, so by default I tend to just avoid them. Which is so not the way to go, because they’re almost always the most beautiful.
To be honest, the only reason I read it now is because I couldn’t decide what to read, so I handed over my TBR list to my husband and told him to pick. Otherwise, I probably would have continued to procrastinate on reading it. But I can’t put into words how incredibly happy I am that he chose The Gravity of Us.
What a truly beautiful book. Brittainy C. Cherry is a very talented author. She pulled emotions out of me with this one in a way I did not see coming. This book is a ninja – a silent killer. I could cry alone just from the beauty of her writing, I highlighted more in this book than I have in a long time. Let alone all of the emotion built into the story and that you feel through the characters.
Lucy is a wonderful heroine. She’s just the sweetest, loving, kind person and I loved every bit of her. Everything about her was endearing. I wasn’t sold on Graham as the hero in the beginning, but that’s kind of the whole point of the story. His character growth throughout the entirety of the book is something really beautiful to watch. He is also very special and I couldn’t help but fall completely in love with him.
This is definitely one of my favorite reads in a long time and I’m just mad I didn’t read it sooner. I’m going to make myself read more Brittainy C. Cherry, because writing like that doesn’t happen on accident. I can’t recommend this book highly enough.
