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.

The Gravity of Us is a heartfelt story of two people who found love in the most impossible of circumstances.

Brilliantly written, poignant, and breathtaking.
B. Cherry writes with so much heart and soul, this is her best work to date.

Highly recommend.

I gave myself five chapters max before I called it a day. I am SO glad I didn’t give up. Because after that bumpy start, I was quickly won over by this beautiful, poignant book and its amazing characters: a girl who feels everything and a man who feels nothing at all.

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.

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

Why did I give this book 3 STARS? Simple. It doesn’t compare to the books I’ve given 4 STARS to. I felt as though I would have been disrespectful to all of my 4 STAR reads if I had shared the same rating between this one and the other 4 STARS.

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.

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.

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

Ich kann es nicht oft genug erwähnen, aber Brittainy C. Cherry schreibt direkt in die Seele. Sie nimmt die Worte und formt sie zu Gefühlen. Schleudert sie dem Leser entgegen und presst sie in Kopf und Körper. Ihre Geschichten werden zur Gänsehaut auf meinen Armen. Zum Adrenalin das durch meine Blutbahn rauscht. Zu jedem Takt meines schlagenden Herzens.
Sie schreibt. Man fällt.

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

The Gravity of Us is the story of Lucille and Graham, an optimist and a pessimist. Circumstances throw them together and Graham ends up needing Lucille even if he doesn’t want to admit it. While Lucille drives him crazy, over time she begins to grow on him and a mutual attraction develops.

“It’s just funny, isn’t it? How the main characters never know about the adventures they’re about to go on.”

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.

Graham Russell was an award winning fiction author. His books might have heart, but the man himself avoided showing it in real life. That was until she entered his life and showed him what it meant to live a

“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.

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

“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.” 53 likes
