Greyson East left his mark on me.

As the young girl who first fell for him, I didn’t know much about life. I did know about his smiles, though, and his laughs, and the strange way my stomach flipped when he was near.

Life was perfect…until it wasn’t, and when we were forced to go our separate ways, I held on to our memories, let go of my first crush, and wished for the day

People didn’t have to talk about love to know that it existed. Love wasn’t only real because people said it out loud. No, love just kind of sat there quietly, in the shadows of the night, healing the cracks that lived on our heart.

No one writes a story quite like Brittainy C. Cherry. She is exceptional. I felt every word of this book in my heart. My words are feeling inadequate right now because this book was just that beautiful and sensational and I can’t properly describe how much

**Spoilers**

How is it that Cherry continually recycles the same characters and plot?
And would it kill her to deviate from the norm by writing a story that doesn't include

A) Death of an off-page /on-page character which is then ruthlessly and simultaneously utilized as a tearjerker and plot twist.

B) The heroine "rescuing" the mostly despondent yet completely gorgeous widower/father/douchy hero

C) A heroine who's neither ambitious nor self-aware; living only to ensure the "happiness" of the widow

We weren’t touching, but I swore I felt him. I felt his heartbeats. When he hurt, my heart cried. When he was in pain, my eyes were the ones to weep. That’s how close the two of us were. Our love story was so much more than a romantic tale. Our story was about friendship. About family. About looking out for those who always looked out for you. His soul was born to be loved by mine.






AMAZING!!! I am so in love with this story and Brittainy C. C

I am a huge Brittainy fan but this book fell short for me.

I loved teen Ellie and Grey. The first 30% of the book happens in 2003 when Grey is 17 and Ellie 16. I adored their relationship and how much they loved each other. Sadly life happened and they lost touch.

Fast forward 15 years and Grey and Ellie meet again. This is the part where the book lost a little of its magic for me. Grey lost his wife, which he loved deeply, and is father to 2 girls. Ellie is a nanny and starts working for him. S

Wow.... Don’t you absolutely love a read where you get lost in it, taken away?? This read was it for me. It was like don’t touch me, do not talk me, just leave me alone so I can get to the end of this book



I have no doubt this journey will effect you, in many ways, but at the end, who can deny love



Hands down recommend this book for all you second chance trope lovers. Be prepared to smile, to cry-and I mean ugly cry, and be ready to love. This author has that beautiful magic to sweep you away ♥

Overall Opinion: Right off the bat I have to say that Ms. Cherry always taps into my emotions, and she definitely did that with this book! I know to expect to shed at least a few tears when I pick her books up, and this didn't disappoint! I f-loved their past relationship. I f-loved Grey in the past. I, however, struggled some with the Grey of the present. I also struggled a lot with the fact that we don't hardly get any time with them as a couple in the present! It was mostly time-ju

Wow this is so emotional grief and friendship story! I loved Brittainy Cherry’s talented writing! I adore her Elements series !( Silent Waters and The Air he breathes are all my favorites) This book is a little softer if you compare it with her previous works.
This book is mostly about two people’s reconnection to pass through the obstacles the life throws at their way and share their loneliness after they lost their loved ones.
It’s a sweet, heartwarming family story. It’s about surviving again

"What do you want to be when you grow up?"

"Happy"


Starting a Brittainy C cherry book is like cocooning yourself in the most softest blanket that you’ve ever felt. Not only do you feel safe and warm, but there’s this kind of peace that centers you and you will give anything to try and keep that feeling. Her words are like a healing balm over broken hearts diminishing endless tears that had no choice, but to flow in the stream of utter despair on the flesh of the damaged and lost souls.

First I was hesitant to read this book as I needed to know why they were separated in the first place so that I could decide if I wanted to read it or not. But the problem lies elsewhere, not why they were separated.

Eleanor & Grey? Should have been called Nicole & Grey because the second half was all about her and how much Grey loved her with all his heart.

Yes, I am in the minority here, but I despised this book. Although, I did adore part 1 but that adoration was completely ruined by the last half so that's always nice.

Non-stop heartbreak. I think I never cried as much as I did with this book!

Part one of the book (the first 33%) takes us back to 2003.

It starts as this super-sweet young adult romance. The nerdy bookworm and the hot guy every girl at school wants.

First love and Harry Potter and smiles and dragonflies and red licorice and kung-fu movies and just showing up.

But then there are also the sad parts about their home lives that they can forget for a few hours whe

Okay, so this is officially a major #MeNotYou with this one. I think I should love it more, but the sweetness overwhelmed me, and triggered all my diabetic impulses.


And it becomes even more apparent when you really feel nada for a book written by your unicorn author. And really, that's all that I can say for this because it's not like I have a lot to say. I don't hate this book, but I just don't love this either.

Update: I ended up reading this bc it was KU, and I am weak. All my thoughts below still stand. The heroine existed simply to give the hero a reward for having to go through losing the real love of his life. She will never know what it feels to be a first choice or be loved above all. She should have also had a love so they both come to the table from an equal place looking for a second chance at happiness, not a place where the heroine is just a default choice for him.

No matter how swamped I become in my reading and reviewing schedule, I will forever continue to make time for Brittainy C. Cherry's books, even if I have to stay up all night to read. She writes one emotional hit after the next, each one better than the last. Right now I can't possibly imagine how she'll continue this upward trend after Eleanor & Grey, though if anyone can manage it, Brittainy will find a way. This book is the best of the best.

Fabulous story. It truly is but I don't think I'd call this a romance. Of course this is MY opinion. While it definitely has the element of romantic love I felt this story to be more about Eleanor's journey, Grey's journey, and then the special role they play in each other's journey.

This story had its beautiful, sad and happy moments. It's a road of heartbreak and the need to keep going when you've lost all your stren
