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.
CHRISTY'S 5+ STAR REVIEW:
I know I say this after reading every B Cherry book, but I seriously think THIS book is my favorite of hers. Brittainy-
“Every word you’ve ever written becomes my new favorite story.”
Lucy and Graham’s story is original, beautiful, and completely unforgettable!
The Gravity of Us starts with Lucille Palmer. A heroine with loads of strength, love, and the biggest heart. Lucy has 2 older sisters and they all lost their free spirited mama years ago. Out of all the girls, Lucy is the one most like her mama. She’s sort of a ‘hippie weirdo’ and I mean that in the best possible way. Lucy is one of the best heroines I’ve ever read about and by far my favorite character Brittainy Cherry has ever written. I loved every single thing about her. And her nickname for Graham- best thing ever!!!
“You can call me Lucy.”
“How old are you?”
“Lucy is a name for a child. If you ever truly want to make it in the world, you should go by Lucille.”
“Noted. If you ever want to be the life of the party, you should consider the nickname Graham Cracker.”
Lucy and Graham meet under interesting circumstances. It’s safe to say that they are opposites. Lucy is fun, free, and happy, where as Graham is taciturn, grounded, and grouchy. This is a story of opposites who are thrown together and some how, some way fall for each other. At first, Lucy drives Graham crazy, but with time, she grows on him. In fact, she is one of the very few people in this world Graham can stand. I loved how different they were from one another. Seeing the way Graham changed and evolved afters spending time with Lucy was one of my favorite parts of the story. I love how one person can come into your life and change everything for you.
I wanted to know what it meant to be a part of her world. To be a man who felt everything.
I don’t want to delve too deep into the story. I loved all the moments that made me gasp and watching how everything came together. Just know this story is exceptional. It’s a forbidden(ish) love story, but it’s also a journey. These characters go through a lot but everything that happens happens for a reason (MAKTUB). Not only did I adore Lucy and Graham, but there were some exceptional supporting characters. Ollie was by far my favorite.
Brittainy’s writing is stunning. It’s epic and brilliant and just everything. Her stories are unlike any authors out there. Every book she writes is unique and emotional and she knows just how to get me in the feels. Every book Brittainy writes makes its way onto my favorites list. She’s that kind of author. Her books are truly special and one of a kind. So many of her quotes speak to me and I just can’t get enough!
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.
The Gravity of Us pulled me in from the very first page and never let go. It moved me, made me think, made me feel, and made me fall in love. I laughed, I cried, I cried some more, but I was left with a full heart and a huge smile on my face when I was finished reading. This book is going on my all time favorites book and is my top read of 2017 so far! I give it 5+ stars and recommend it to everyone!!
“Love doesn’t push things away. Love doesn’t suffocate. It makes the world bloom. She taught me that. She taught me how love works.”
