Blog Tour: The Gravity of Us by Brittany C. 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.

Review by Lisa Kane

When Lucy was eighteen her mama passed. She left her three daughters three things: to her older sister Lyric she left a music box with a dancing ballerina. To her sister Mari she left her rocking chair and to her she left a tiny heart shaped gem to wear around her neck. Now her mama was a free spirit- always just one step ahead of the bill collector. Lyric couldn't take that life style; she moved away, got a good education and became a career woman. Mari married Parker, the love of her life. They may not have been her best decision yet. When the going got tough and Mari fell sick, Parker made himself scarce. There was no sign of Lyric either but the two sisters managed the best they could.

At the time, it felt like the sun had been stolen from us, and we didn't have a clue how to move forward. 

They eventually followed their dream of opening a flower shop and Monet Garden's, named in honor of Lucy's favorite painter Claude Monet. When she's filling an order for a funeral she meets GM Russell, the famous author by way of a locked door. It's not the most promising of beginnings.

Sometimes the ugliest people were the ones who were the most broken. 

Graham Russell is not what you would call a contented soul. He is ornery at what's nothing more than to keep to himself and write. His wife Jane is a social ladder climber and successful in  her own right. She's not a family oriented person which is a shame since things are going to be changing for this couple.

"You are not my final sentence, you are not my last word. You are simply a chapter I wish I could delete."

All three lives are going to intersect and crash. It's how and where the pieces fall that makes up this story.

It had taken every ounce of me to not allow gravity to force me to my knees. 

This is one of those reviews where you can't tell too much without spoiling some major parts of the book, but it's exactly what we have come to expect from Ms. Cherry. It's full of angst and heartbreak and tears but just like all her other stories, there will be both tears of sorrow and joy.

After all, maktub-it was already written. 


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.
