My Rating :
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 and a heart wrenching yet beautiful love story. It’s about two polar opposites who, despite their misgivings on love, find a remedy to open their hearts. This is not without the angst and heartbreak though. There is a lot to get through in order to find a possible HEA in the midst of everything. But when two souls are clearly meant to be together, the hard stuff becomes worth it. And this is proven within this novel.
True to the authors form, this is an amazing and emotional romance novel. It adds a bit of the forbidden, a lot of emotion, and a ton of angst. The hero is rather reclusive. He was brought up in pain, so being able to love another human being is hard for him. He likes predictability, having everything laid out in front of him, and no surprises. So imagine his “distaste” when a sparkly and vibrant woman enters his life and sends it into a tailspin. In the beginning, there is only a physical attraction between the two. Other than that there is a strong disliking on both parts. However, as time goes on, and both learn a little something from one another a more mature and emotional bond begins.
Now, readers should be warned prior to going into this novel that there appears to be cheating. But don’t worry, it’s not anything like you would expect. If you go into it with an open mind and lose yourself in the book you will see that no cheating really occurs. It just seems like this in the beginning. In terms of the forbidden aspects of the novel- well, you’ll have to read it to see. I don’t want to spoil anything for readers so I won’t say anything else on the subject- but it’s there!
Overall, Brittainy C. Cherry has done it again- she has written a beautifully heartbreaking novel that will stand the tests of time. All of the books she has written as still clear in my mind and this is not something that usually happens. She is, by far, one of my favorite romance authors to date and anything she writes I can promise to devour.
