There once was a boy, and I loved him.

Logan Francis Silverstone was the complete opposite of me. I danced while he stood still. He was quiet, and I was always running my mouth. He struggled to find a smile while I refused to frown.

The night I saw the darkness that truly lived inside of him, I couldn’t look away.

We were broken together, yet somehow whole. We were wrong tog

“You’re okay, Logan Francis Silverstone.”

“I’m okay, Alyssa Marie Walters.”

When it comes to beautiful stories that make me feel and fall in love, no one does it like Brittainy C. Cherry. No one can write like this woman. She is probably the most talented author I’ve read. And I read a lot. Her words move me beyond belief and her writing style is so gorgeous, powerful and special. When I started The Fire Between High and Lo I had high expectations. I expected greatness a
Ms. Brittainy C. Cherry has, once again, ripped my heart out. I swear, this woman has the power to wreck me! Her stories are beautiful, and at the same time, tragic. She'll make you fall in love, only to rip your heart out. Then, she'll slowly put the pieces back together again.

'The Fire Between High & Lo' is one hell of an emotional roller coaster ride! I felt so conflicted over this story. It made me so damn angry, but I couldn't pull myself away from it. I was hooked.

“Some of the best things in life come from the strongest kinds of friendships.”

There’s no secret I love this author. Brittainy C. Cherry knows really well how to write an emotional story. She always delivers beautiful written stories that have the power to move almost every reader out there. Since I loved the first book in the series I anxiously waited to read this one. I liked it enough and of course I loved the flawless, almost poetic writing, but sadly for me wasn’t as go

I wanted to love this book but sadly I didn't. There is no doubt that the writing is beautiful, the story is emotionally packed and will be able to tug at your heartstrings. I loved some parts of it (like brothers' relationship for example, it was beautiful), I just didn't feel the connection between High and Lo. It failed on romantic level for me. I didn't feel the love. Honestly, Lo was a selfish douche bag. I get that he had his demons, but he kept hurting her and hurting her. It was hard for ...more

”She believed in God while I danced with demons.”

Brittainy Cherry once again delivers a big story but this time sadly the love connection was lost on me. I did have all the feels but it was for Kellan and Erika perhaps they should have been the story’s full focus? I think my lack of connection was with the heroine, not so much her being willing to take Lo anyway she can get him but I just found her not real enough, and together they lacked luster. I’m still sad that I didn’t fal

This is just another book that suffered under my inability to not compare books. My 3.5 rating doesn't mean I didn't like the story, just that I kept thinking back on how much I liked The Air He Breathes and wanted those same emotions.I also had a few problems with the characters, but nothing too bad that made me hate them.

In this standalone romance that spans five years, we are introduced to two young people who come from very different backgrounds, but have more in common than one might think.

This is the second book in the Elements series and also my second read of the talented Brittainy Cherry. I was in awe of her after reading The Air He Breathes and now, now, with this one, she has me on my knees.

Talk about a writer that can effortlessly evoke so many emotions and craft such wonderfully layered, heart wrenching and heartwarming stories.

Another powerful installment in Brittany Cherry’s elementals series. Logan has lived a terrible childhood as the son of two addicts and abusers. Alyssa has a controlling, emotionally abusive mother, and a father who is never there. They have a friendship that turns slowly to high school love, but can two broken people do anything but hurt one another. Five years later, can they finally form something real? Powerfully done.

I was so excited to finally get a copy of this book. I enjoyed it but I felt it could've been so much more. Contrary to The Air He Breathes, this book didn’t draw me in. I thought the idea interesting in the beginning and decided to give it a shot but was really disappointed. I’m not sure what happened with this one. Just didn't connect with it like the first Elements book. Give it a shot. I still love the author and I am desperately anticipating her next work.

BCC's writing is flawless. That is something I never have to worry about when I start one of her stories. Every novel I've read of hers (4 total), I've finished in a day. Work and writing be damned (which I cannot afford to do right now lol), but I have no other choice when I read one of this author's books. Her words pull me in. The writing is simply beautiful.

They both have hopes & dreams, but while Alyssa is living a comfortable life, Logan was dealt a tragic life, where he constantly feels as if he's drowning.

WoW! This book was absolutely amazing, but at the same time so sad. While reading the book I just wanted to rip my own heart from my chest so I wouldn't feel their pain. And I feel it, still do.

WOW. I really enjoyed reading this book. I loved The Air He Breathes and I completely freaked out when I saw that I’ve got an ARC of this beautiful book.
