The Gravity of Us (Elements #4) by Brittainy C. Cherry
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.
Let’s start by saying that I bought this book after reading many many reviews about this wonderful book. Even though there is a series, most people suggested I start with “The Gravity of us”, which I did last night, and let me tell you how that went… absolutely fantastical read!!!
It left me so full inside that I am now leaving everything behind and start with the 1st book of the series.
I got my love for slow burns from Mariana Zapata’s books. If you love them, or what to know what the heck I m talking about, just read them. Start with whichever you want, but read them. Of far until the end of 2018 there are 9 of them.. too little for my wishes!
So let’s get back to this wonderful book full with heartbroken love, twists that I did not see coming and so much truth and anchoring in the real world. It got me thinking that many people do live that way. Hope that got you curious! If not, continue reading.
Lucy and Graham are the main characters in this story, one broken soul and one free spirit, who seem so opposite but are drown in this world of loneliness and uncertainty that makes one wonder if you ever loved so powerful in your life. Let me tell this story without spoilers… they meet under strange circumstances, bond under obvious circumstances, and fall in love in the meantime, but they acknowledge that this love will be judged by society considering he is married. (nope, there aren’t any cheating, if that is what you are wondering about; you’ll understand that soon enough).
The book shows us how love can change even the darkest monster, how it can keep you afloat under the worst things that one faces in life. Give it a go, and you’ll not be disappointed.
The books is part of a series, but can be read in any order since the characters don t come to interact.
