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 pai

"I’d died a million deaths before I gave living a chance, and my first breath of life was taken from her lips."

I swear, every time I read this author, I AM WOW'ED. To the point that I have NO IDEA what to say in a review. In fact, I don't think I've ever managed to finish a review on one of Brittainy Cherry's books because all I have is "OMG! OMFG! OMG! OMG! OMGGGG! OMG!" at the end! She leaves me speechless.

EVERY. SINGLE. TIME. It never ever ever fails. I'm left OPEN MOUTHED AND SPEECHLESS.

Brittainy C. Cherry delivers a very unique storyline. This story centers around one of three sisters who were raised differently than the 'norm' with a special spirited mother. Lucy finds herself in the midst of her older sister’s personal life and in turn she steps in and helps out a heartless hero.

For an author, he was unnervingly good-looking and fit. A tattoo traveled up his left arm, wrapping around to the back of his shoulder blade, and his arms appeared as if his biceps had their own biceps, who had then given birth to their own biceps.
For a moment, I considered if he truly was an author and not Dwayne Johnson.

Right after we soared to our highest heights, we descended and crashed to our lowest lows—but not before his air became my breaths, not before his earth became my ground. His flames were my fire, his thirst was my water, and his spirit?

His spirit became my soul.
Then, we prepared ourselves for goodbye.

Brittainy C. Cherry has never failed to make me cry my eyes out so I really don't know why the emotions this book made me feel came as such a surprise. Maybe because they hit me in an almost sneaky kind of way. When we're introduced to Lucy and Graham we got humor, and intrigue more than anything else. Seeing how different their personalities were sucked me right in and I couldn't help but laugh at Graham when he seemed to just not understand the concept of happin

Lucille (Lucy) Palmer was a free spirit. She was as bright and lovely as the flowers in her shop. She was never one to shy from embracing her emotions even if it's against a heartless man.

“Some love stories were meant to be forever, and others just for a season.

I always find myself in awe whenever I read a Brittainy C Cherry book. Her words are poetic and they always become a nurtured balm to my soul. Her ability to tell a story and not only wish you were there in that moment, but to make you FEEL is what reading her stories does to me. Sometimes you think to yourself, how can words touch a person like that? The lyrical sway of each syllable you feel down to

Brittainy C. Cherry has done it again with another outstanding story in her Elements series. ‘The Gravity of Us’ was absolutely phenomenal and I could not fault it. Some authors I hold in such a high regard, where their books have a profound impact on me in a way that other authors aren’t able to do. Brittainy C. Cherry is one of those authors.

There's not enough beautiful words in the dictionary that could describe this book. Graham and Lucy took me hostage into their vibrant world, where love was able to give color and hope, even to the darkest of hearts. This story made me forget where I was, who I was, and what I was doing; I was only feeling, so many emotions flowing through me at once, I was helpless to the amazing words of this author.

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.

For a romance novel, this is so much more than that! It's been a couple of days since I finished reading it and I'm still in awe. To begin with, I found that I was able to identify myself with the female protagonist, which was a nice surprise as it's a rare occurrence in the romance NA genre.

"She was the girl who felt everything, and I was the man who felt nothing at all."

I am a huge fan of Brittainy's writing, and I knew this book would be amazing. If you read the blurb, you know it doesn't really give you a clear idea of what to expect. I didn't even read it myself I dived right into it. I will keep the plot as vague as possible, just go in like me and enjoy the ride. I was intrigued by the characters right away. I loved Gr

This was a genuinely lovely story, it was somewhat unique, and had strong likeable characters with a decent plotline.

Our heroine Lucy is a free-spirited, quirky lady who wears her heart on her sleeve. She has two sisters, one that she is very close to, and another that she has reluctantly drifted apart from. The relationship betwe

Overall Opinion: This was a total 5 star read for me in the first 80ish%! I felt like the major conflicts were thrown in way too late and resolved way too easily for them to be believable. I am so bummed! I loved this book until then! I knew we had to have the conflict, so I was expecting it...but that late?!? It was accompanied by some other big drama for both the H and h (that felt a little OTT) right at the same time! And all of the conflicts seem to take a complete 180 and turn aro

Lucy Palmer is a 26 year old woman from Wisconsin, who was deeply affected by the loss of her mother a few years ago. She has two sisters, but is only close with one of them. She is the free spirit of the three of them. Always the one to be strong for everyone, but also the one that feels everything. She's gentle, passionate, and lives life to the fullest.

In all honesty, she deserves to have your praise and attention as she continues to bring forth stories that are beautifully tragic, poignant, and yet fills your heart with so much love, truth, beauty and understanding.

‘Love. The emotion that made people both soar and crash. The feeling that lit humans up and burned their hearts. The beginning and ending of every journey.’

Beautiful. Soul searching. Evocative. Heart-breaking. Inspirational. Hopeful. A favourite read of this year, no question. There’s so many honours we can bestow this book and its Author, because The Gravity of Us was one of those books that grabbed our hearts in its fist and held it tight whilst we shed tears fearing our hearts would break yet

The Gravity of Us is an emotional, quietly building romance between two people who are completely different. This was also a story that was more than a romance. It was a story that had love woven throughout: family, friendship, and romantic. This gripping story was not what I expected but everything these two needed.

Graham is quiet, brooding and unaffected. He's numb and likes it that way. He's created his whole life around the idea that this is the way it needs to be. Lucy

What an amazing story of love....just amazing! This is going to be a difficult review to write because I don't want to give away any spoilers and I would just love if everyone would just pick up this book and read it!

Lucy is a free spirit, a believer in love, a person with hope, and a light inside her that shines so bright. Graham is a hardened, cold-hearted, non-believer, and author of bestselling horror books. When their paths cross, their interaction was so interesting because Lu
This. Was. Magnificent! It truly was. I need all the stars and then some for my rating. This is by far IMO BC's best work to date. There isn't a single thing I didn't love (not like, love) about The Gravity of Us. From the slow burn romance and Graham's 180 in himself, how he saw the world, how he loved his child to the amazing cast of supporting characters.

The writing is on point, tight but so beautiful and the feels! Sheesh, I thought this would be an angst overload, and it was anything but.

“Loneliness is a liar,” Graham told me, sitting down on the edge of his bed as he spoke. “It’s toxic and deadly most of the time. It forces people to believe they are better off with the devil himself than being alone, because somehow being alone means a person failed. Somehow being alone means a person isn’t good enough. So, more often than not, the poison of loneliness seeps in and makes a person believe that any kind of attention must stand for love. Fake love that is built on a bed of loneliness will fail—I should know. I’ve been alone all my life.” 12 likes
