Each day I prayed for my husband to love me again.

After fifteen years together, he walked away from me, and into the arms of another.

I didn’t know how to cope. I didn’t know my worth. I didn’t know how to exist without him by my side.

All I wanted was for him to come back to me.

Then, Jackson Emery appeared.

He was supposed to be a distraction for my mind. A summer fling. A c

“When you find you, come back to me.”


Earlier last year, I read a singular Brittany C. Cherry book that completely stole the air from my lungs. When I found out that she was writing a new standalone, I all but tore the whole house down. Disgrace was most parts beautiful, some parts substandard and all parts heart-breaking.

I was in a conundrum on whether I should rate this 3 or 4 stars, because in truth it was both. The writing was lyrical and the characters were multi-dim

Brittainy C. Cherry has done it again. She's written my favorite book of the year. Disgrace is by far the best book I've read so far in 2018. I can't say for sure if it's my favorite B Cherry book, as she's written so many of my favorites, but it's the one that's touched me the deepest. This story was relatable to me. I have felt what Grace has felt, and reading some of her thoughts and feelings shook me to my core. I love getting all the feels when I read and this one really did a n

Another beautiful book from Ms.Cherry! ❤❤❤

Our mutual sadness was the only thing keeping us afloat. It was odd— how two sad people could make one another breathe.

His kisses felt different, more real than the fictional story we’d been telling one another every single day for the past few weeks. He hadn’t said the words, and I hadn’t either, but our kisses felt like we were begging for a little more time. A few more touches. A few more skipping heartbeats.

RATING: 5 ‘Always and always’ Hearts!! <3

Disgrace is a paragon of romance reads, setting apart Brittainy C. Cherry’s tales from that of others in the genre with its depth of emotional intimacy—every word a cathartic amalgam of heartache, love, passion and joy as our protagonists triumph through life’s tribulations.

Sometimes, all a person needed was another to listen to their uneven heartbeats.

“ He wasn’t mine and I wasn’t his but that night, we were something”.

Brittainy C Cherry has solidified her mark in the literary world with her timeless words and effortless storytelling. I don’t even think she knows how much her words alone has touched so many of her readers and how much they mean to us.

Normally I would go a little bit into the plot and tell you what I loved and what I didn’t but for this particular story, I cant do that. The words were powerful enough in their own right an

This book was perfection! It gave me all the feels. Brittainy C. Cherry never disappoints.

Jackson and Grace are two broken souls that find and help each other heal. Their love is so beautiful and strong. Their story is one of heartbreak, pain and loss and believing in the power of love. They are true soulmates and even though they had to go through a lot they finally found each other.

Once every so often (if you’re lucky enough) you come across a book that is everything you hoped it would be and more. It speaks to you in such a profound and deep level, you don’t think you could possibly read a book that could top this one.

Safety warning:

If you dislike reading books that involve cheating, then, you should stay away from this book as the heroine is married for three quarters of the book while her husband cheats on her many times. And after learning about many betrayals of her husband, she finds herself a boyfriend while still married.

It is towards the very end of the book when she is free. I didn't judge her morally when she found herself a lover while married because she didn't owe any loyalty to that as*hole any

“Always and always.”

How can you not love a Brittainy C. Cherry book? She spins a tale that is so in depth and full of emotion that it grips you hard and doesn't let go and this one is no exception.

Grace has always been the good preacher's daughter...always doing what she's told and most importantly what's expected. So, when her husband leaves her after cheating on her multiple times, she doesn't know what to do with herself. Enter the town's bad boy, Jackson Emery.

Told in a dual POV, Brittainy C Cherry has once again worked her magic and made me fall in the book from the first sentences holding me prisoner in Grace and Jackson’s world till the very end.

How does she do it? Capture my heart and make me feel the heroine’s devastation right from the start?

Overall Opinion: This was a touching read about two broken souls finding love in an unexpected place. I loved their connection. I loved the unlikelihood of their pairing and that they worked so well despite it all. I think the H, Jackson, made the story for me tbh! I didn't really like the h, because I wanted her to be stronger -- but I did understand what Ms. Cherry was doing with her character, and I understood that this aspect of her character (that I perceived as weakness) was part o

Disgrace is a must read. Gah! The array of emotions this book is packed with was something that took me by surprise. I was in awe of Brittainy's writing. For a book that can be compared to an encyclopedia with it's lenght, I sure finished it in one sitting. I tell you this, you will never know how fast you can turn a page with your emotion in your sleeve once you read Jackson and Grace's story. Page turner was an understatement.

“You’re my world, Gracelyn Mae,” he told me, moving in closer. Mama removed the roses from his hold, and Jackson took my hands into his. “You’re my faith. You’re my hope. You’re my true religion.

I'm not the type of reader who highlight books phrases whenever I read. But with Brittainy books you can't not do it! There is so beautiful lines that makes you think, to hold it for life. The author's writing has made a huge book seems small from the way that the story has flowed. You won't even notice the time passing, the day turning night, because of how immersed that you will be while reading.

And that is what Jackson did. For years, he took care of this father, through the bad times and the worst times. Living in a small town, Jackson was seen as the “troubled” kid.
