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.

 

Excerpt:

 

Lucy

We 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.

Amber’s Review:

I’m a bit sad…sad to see the conclusion of this wonderful series.

The Gravity of Us is the 4th book in Brittainy C. Cherry’s Elements series. Each book focuses on a particular element – Air, Fire, Water and Gravity. They are each standalone books.

The Gravity of Us focuses on renowned author and recluse Graham Russell and hippie weirdo Lucy Palmer. Graham has closed himself off to his feelings…having survived the leaving of his mother as well as an abusive father. Lucy is just the opposite, she is the girl that feels everything and dances to the beat of her own drum.

As the classic saying goes, opposites do indeed attract.

I personally found this book to be reminiscent of her previous release, The Air He Breathes. I didn’t feel that the subject matter was quite as rough as The Silent Waters (which is still my favorite in the series).

Brittainy has once again given her readers a beautiful and poetic story. Her writing style is eloquent; sometimes bordering on poetry. But not too fluffy at the same time. I experienced every range of emotion during my reading of this story as well. At times I was laughing while at others, I had tears streaming down my cheeks.

A beautiful conclusion to the Elements series. I can’t wait to see what Brittainy has planned for her readers next.
