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.



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.

Brittainy C. Cherry has been on my radar for a while. I have been wanting to read her Elements series for a while. Have heard many great things about her books. So when I had the opportunity to read The Gravity of Us, Elements #4, I jumped at the chance. And I absolutely loved it. Devoured it. Was consumed by it. I loved it so much, I feel I may not be able to do it justice in my review. But I will try.

Lucy Palmer is a free spirit that has seen the bad side of life more times then she cares to remember, but who continues to live life to its fullest. She lives. She is not able to hide what she feels. And when she feels, she feels with all her heart and soul. She is strong and determined, but also fun, loving and loyal. I really loved Lucy. She was a great character.

Graham Russell is a renowned author, who basically keeps to himself. His decisions have been précised and with purpose. He is a man that is feels nothing. He hides behind his words. He does not know what love really is and does not care too find out. He can be cruel and most of the time is not even likeable, but behind the hard exterior, he is a broken and lost man.

This story will consume you. It was original, with unexpected twists, and a slow build up. Lily and Graham could not be more different if they tried. But they somehow build an unexpected friendship. There is a small element of a forbidden love story, but really, it’s about how one person can come into your life and change it for the better.

The author wrote an intricate and beautiful story. I was captivated by every word. Her words made me feel. I loved Graham and Lucy, as well as many of the secondary characters. So much happens in this story, but it flows well and will leave you content. This is definitely a top 2017 read and a 5+ read. I absolutely loved everything about this story.
