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.
Review + Excerpt: The Gravity of Us by Brittainy C. Cherry
Brittany C Cherry… sigh… It’s like she writes books just for me. Her words are pure poetry and they just touch my soul!! I just devoured this book! DEVOURED!!! I could not get enough of it! I was reading at any chance I could. It was just that good!! There are not many books in 2017 that have blew me away. I’ve loved many books but there is just a few that were EXPECTIONAL. The Gravity of Us is one of those books!! I’m adding this to my best of 2017 list, that is just how much I freaking loved it! Go now if you’ve not one clicked and get this book!!!
Lucy is the free spirit. She’s definitely a flower child and maybe even a borderline hippy. She owns a flower show with her sister how just battled and beat cancer. She has an artist boyfriend and life is good. She’s happy and content and doesn’t think anything is missing from it.
Until Graham came into her life. She meets him while delivering flowers to a funeral and they couldn’t be more opposite if they tried. Where Lucy is a free spirit, Graham is cold and calculating. He is a best selling author that writes mystery and suspense. He’s not one to talk about his feelings and keeps everything bottled up inside. To Lucy’s surprise, she discovers he’s married to her estranged sister that she hasn’t seen in years.
While one life changing event brought them together once, another will bring them together and a bond will forged out of necessity. They have absolutely nothing in common but that is what brings them together. They say opposites attract for a reason. Graham should be off limits. Lucy should not feel what she does towards him. Both struggle with what is right and what is wrong.
Can two wrongs make a right? Can Lucy and Graham find happiness in a forbidden love affair? The heart wants what the heart wants and the two struggle to find themselves when both thought they knew their life path. You’ll need to read The Gravity of Us to see how it all plays out!! This is a HUGE 5 star read for me!! This must be read!!!
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.
