The Gravity of Us by Brittainy C. Cherry

Release Date: April 13th, 2017 Genre: Contemporary Romance

Cover Designer: Quirkybird Designs

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 pains. Seconds when we both imagined what it would be like to love one another.
Those seconds left us floating, but when reality knocked us sideways, gravity forced us to descend.
Graham Russell wasn’t a man who knew how to love, and I wasn’t a woman who knew how to either. Yet if I had the chance to fall again, I’d fall with him forever.
Even if we were destined to crash against solid ground.

“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 your core and then the moment hits you: Reading this book wasn’t a pleasure. It was an EXPERIENCE.

Lucille Palmer has always wore her heart on her sleeve. She feels every emotion more than others, she cares about people with everything she has, but when she loves? She loves hard. Being known as a free spirit but also the one that can hold her sisters together, Lucille was the type of woman you wanted to have as a friend and as a sister. When she meets her complete opposite in the form of cold and brooding, Lucille knows that her kindness and her ability to see the good In everyone is going to outweigh a certain someone’s view on life. But forbidden is a drug and temptation is it’s partner.

Graham has a lot of issues. I won’t even try to sugar coat his past and how he perceives everyone else around him because I cant. He doesn’t trust easily and he’s okay with not having love in his life. Following in his father’s footsteps, Graham has achieved the highest level in excellence and is one of the best mystery/crime authors of his time and if you were to ask him if he would ever want anything else, his answer would be no. 

You see here’s the thing about life. One minute your completely content with something and the next, something or someone just storms in like a hurricane making you wish for more. Making you want to be want to be different. Making you want to feel. And that someone came in the form of a free spirit.

“That was the thing about hearts- when you thought they were completely full, you somehow found room to add a little more love.” 

I have to say that for the first half of the story, it took me a while to get into. Maybe it was just me and how I was feeling at that time but I wasn’t too invested in everything but the minute I hit the second half, I practically heard the clicking of the final puzzle piece and everything came together. I loved how Graham and Lucille were with one another and how their connection and interactions felt effortless. They certainly had their work cut out for them but I liked how they knew the odds were against them and they still managed to find that peace of balance and never forgot who they were. 

As a fan of this series, I cannot tell you how much I loved reading about these complex and loving characters. This is a bittersweet moment and I’m quite sad that this is the last book in the series but you know what they say: All good things must come to an end.

And oh how good this was….



We didn’t know how to act with one another after our first kiss. Our situation wasn’t the norm when it came to building a relationship. We did everything backward. I fell in love with a boy before our first kiss, and he fell for a girl who he wasn’t allowed to have. Our connection, our heartbeats, matched one another in our fairytale world, but in reality, society deemed us as an awful accident. Maybe we were an accident—a mistake. Maybe we were never supposed to cross each other’s paths. Maybe he was only meant to be a lesson in life and not a permanent mark. But still, the way he kissed me… Our kiss was as if heaven and hell collided together, and each choice was right and wrong at the same exact time. We kissed as if we were making a mistake and the best decision all at once. His lips made me float higher, yet somehow descend. His breaths somehow made my heart beat faster as it came to a complete halt. Our love was everything good and bad wrapped in one kiss. A part of me knew I should’ve regretted it, but the way his lips warmed up the cold shadows of my soul…the way he left his mark on me… I’d never regret finding him, holding him, even if we only had those few seconds as one. He’d always be worth those tiny seconds we shared. He’d always be worth that soul-connecting feeling we created when our lips touched. He’d always be the one I spent my nights dreaming of being near. He’d always be worth it to me. 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. And all I could do, all anyone could ever do, was make each moment count. After we went home that night, we didn’t talk about it at all. Not the following week, either. I focused on Talon. Graham worked on his novel. I believed both of us were waiting for the right time to come up for us to speak about it, but that was the tricky thing about timing: it was never right. Sometimes you just had to leap and hope you didn’t fall.
