The Gravity of Us by Brittainy C. Cherry
Release Date: April 13th, 2017
Genre: Contemporary Romance

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.
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.

My Review –
5 Maktub Stars!!
*I volunteered to review a Copy of this book from Social Butterfly PR / the Author*
Thank you so very much Ms.Cherry and Social Butterfly PR!! I am extremely honored and grateful!! 🙂
Being a huge admirer of Ms.Cherry’s work especially her Elements Series I couldn’t wait to dive into this one!! One word – AMAZING!! I absolutely loved this novel with every fiber of my being!! Wow!! I am still speechless days later and this story hasn’t left my mind. I stayed up all night reading it not once caring about lost hours of sleep because this book demanded to be read. It was everything I wanted it to be and more, so much more. To say that it was thought provoking would be a huge understatement.
It’s beauty left it’s mark on my heart forever. While reading I laughed, I cried, I got angry, I swooned, I smiled way too many times to count, and lastly I learned what it means to live life to the fullest. I needed now more than ever to have my eyes opened in that way. Be kind and love fearlessly. It taught me so much. Being inside both of the main characters thrilled me to no end!! There were so many secondary characters that I loved but a certain man with the letter O as his first initial has to be my favorite.
Ms.Cherry created such a phenomenal novel that I will keep with me always. Graham and Lucille (Lucy)’s story was the skies after a summer storm. It was beautiful, damn how it was beautiful. The truths, the pain, the love, the heartache, the bonds, the memories, and the characters meant everything to me!! I don’t know how I’m supposed to move on from The Gravity of Us. All I can say is Thank you Ms.Cherry. Thank you for catching me!! Mad Love for you!! 🙂
I highlighted so many quotes in this book but this one wouldn’t leave my mind nor my heart –
“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.”
If you haven’t already One-Clicked, What are you waiting for?!?! Buy It Today!! Seriously, I’ll wait here while you do so. This is one of my favorite books of 2017 No, scratch that – Ever!! I hope you love this one as much as I did my fellow book lovers and that it makes you feel all the things under the sun!! Also, I wish I can one day have half the heart that Lucy had in this novel. The world needs more people like her. 5 Stars all around even though I’d give it more in a heartbeat!! 🙂
