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.
The Gravity Of Us is the fourth book in Brittainy C. Cherry’s Elements series. This single father romance was one that tugged at all my heartstrings and one I found very hard to put down. I loved it! Their romance can also be read as a standalone.
Lucy is the youngest of three daughters. She’s the one who wears her heart on her sleeve and feels every emotion to the fullest. She loves hard and falls even harder. Her passion is her flower shop and taking care of her family. She’d do anything to put their minds at ease. I loved Lucy and her good vibes throughout this novel. She’s the epitome of what a free spirit would look like. Her light brought so much love to this novel.
Graham grew up in an unconventional way with an asshole of a dad who only showed his good side to the public eye. Maybe that’s how Graham became the top grossing horror/thriller author in the industry, or why he’s such a cold hearted asshole. He learned at a young age showing emotions is also showing your weakest traits, so he lives his life trying to feel nothing. But eventually feelings have a way of catching up with you.
The fact that Brittainy Cherry partnered the free spirit woman with a heart of gold up with a man who was so undeniably emotionless was the perfect route!
I loved getting little glimpses into Graham’s childhood and a direct line into his thoughts and his fears. The beginning of the novel touched my heart in so many ways. I loved seeing the fear when it came to Graham trying his damndest to take care of his newborn daughter. I loved how the foundation in the wall he placed around his heart started to crack from the mere sight of his daughter. He became a character I found admirable. He didn’t let himself and his daughter become a statistic. He rewrote the wrongs that were done to him as a child and saw that his daughter had the happiest of childhoods she could possibly have.
All the moments that came and went, the moments that should Graham it was okay to open his heart and trust another with his emotions. And the moments when Lucy showed Graham not everybody has a motive and is out to hurt you. These moments made my heart soar! These moments had me falling head over heels in love with these two. And don’t even get me started on the slow burn aspect! I loved the fact that Brittainy Cherry kept Lucy pure. I loved the fact that Lucas and Graham didn’t immediately hit the sheets. These two formed a friendship which merged into an emotional relationship, before merging once more into a physical relationship. I loved the slow build up of their relationship
I do have to say, I didn’t like Lyric/Jane at all… but that is to be expected when it comes to the villainous characters who decide to abandon their babies in the NICU and then decide they want to come back a year later thinking they did nothing wrong and expecting to live the flawlessly perfect happily ever after…. However, I did find my heart slightly breaking for her when she laid her heart flat on the table and told her sister, Lucy, about all the resentment she had been harboring through the years. Jealousy has a way of eating at your soul if you hold it in too long, and that’s exactly what it did to Lyric/Jane. I also felt it was weird the way shit went down with Mira, Lucy’s other sister, and her. The manipulation tactic Lyric played really pissed me off to no end. There’s no doubt about it, It brought some crazy drama to the novel. And you all know, I’m all about the drama.
Overall, On an emotional level, I loved The Gravity Of Us by Brittainy C. Cherry! This book gradually climbed its way up to an epic happily ever after. I loved every curve, every twist, and every turn. I loved seeing Graham’s walls fall down and grow into the fatherly role he was always meant to play. I also loved the kind spirit which Lucy brought to the book. This series touched my heart in so many ways! I’m so happy I decided to take the chance and marathon The Elements series. It was an emotional roller coaster, but worth every single moment of ups and downs. I recommend this series to all who love heartbreaking love stories that end with heartwarming delights! I still can’t believe I waited this long to dive into this series… what was I thinking?
