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.

Review by: Tatia 

This book was so breathtakingly beautiful. Highly emotional and evolving, this story had me smiling, fighting back tears, and hoping for the absolute best.
Lucy is the definition of a free spirit. That's the way her mother was and the way she's always been. She's not just some hippie that wants to protect the environment. No, she wants to protect those she loves as well. She hopes for the best in all situations. She believes that life is revolving. You come from the earth and return to it.
Graham is the complete polar opposite. He sees the worst in people. He never smiles, never laughs, never does anything fun. He's brash and honest to a fault. He doesn't say these things to be mean, that's just the way he is. Life has made him hard and cynical. So when he meets this hippie weirdo who never stops talking, it grates on his nerves how free she is.
These two people couldn't be more different if they tried. But Lucy has a way of growing on people. She has this light about her that is difficult to dim. Thank goodness for that as life definitely tries. The way that Graham eventually opens up was amazing. The transformation was like that of a flower in bloom. Slow and beautiful to see.
This is easily my favorite book of Ms. Cherry's to date. Completely engrossed is the words I was reading, I found myself hoping for slow days at work so that I could read the next page, the next paragraph even. I didn't want to miss a single moment. This book deserves all the stars that it's receiving. It's a story that is as beautiful as it is heartbreaking. It's a story that I'll never forget.

5 Stars 


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.
