Blog Tour: The Gravity of Us - Brittainy Cherry


The Gravity of Us, an all-new gripping and emotional standalone from Brittainy C. Cherry is available now!


The Gravity of Us by Brittainy C. Cherry
Release Date: April 13th, 2017
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Cover Designer: Quirkybird Designs

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.

Stunning.  Absolutely stunning.

It’s not often that a book leaves me breathless, speechless and in awe.  But there are a few authors who seem to do it on a regular basis.  Brittainy Cherry is one of them.  The Gravity of Us did just that.  In fact, it’s probably my favorite book by her.  I was drawn in, fully immersed into the story and entrapped by her words.  It wasn’t an easy journey, this is an emotional book and the journey these two characters take is a difficult, emotional one.  Hell, I’m starting to tear up writing this review hours after I have read the book.  If that doesn’t give you an idea about how emotionally impacting this story was I don’t know what will.

Lucy is a beautiful soul, pure, nurturing and caring.  She’s a bit of a free spirit, a little bit of a hippie but her heart is so wide open its awe-inspiring.  Graham is the complete opposite—he’s guarded, closed off and cynical.  He’s been broken before and refuses to be broken again.  I appreciated that this was a slow burn story.  That their chemistry wasn’t explosive but more like burning embers that smolder and smoke.  It made their relationship and romance seem more genuine and honest.  These characters were beautifully written and exquisitely developed.  You can watch them both grow and learn as story takes place.  The secondary characters add an additional layer to the story.  There were some I loved and some I hated.

There is definitely angst in these pages.  This book made me sob and cry.  At times they were tears of heartbreak, others tears of beauty and some tears of joy.  It’s a story of healing, hope, love and family.  I highly recommend that everyone one-click this one today.  You will absolutely fall in love with Lucy and Graham.  -Peace and Love, Buxom J




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.
