Title: The Gravity Of Us
Author: Brittainy C. Cherry
Genre: NA Contemporary Romance
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.
“If you need to fall, fall into me.”-Graham, The Gravity Of Us
The Gravity Of Us is the story of a girl who feels everything and a man who feels nothing. The story starts off sad, with Lucy’s mother dying and keeps at the sadness for a long while but it does have its sweet moments. Lucy is the youngest of three sisters and when her eldest sister, a cold and distant woman, takes off leaving when her child is in the ICU, Lucy steps in to make sure her niece is alright. And that’s how Graham, the father of her niece, and her meet.
It’s a forbidden love story with lots of beautiful moments. At first, all the meetings between Graham and Lucy are awkward but then Lucy changes Graham and he wants to be the person she “falls into”. And the story gets better once Lucy’s idiot of an ex disappears.
“She was the girl who felt everything, and I was the man who felt nothing at all.”-Graham, The Gravity Of Us
The secondary characters were actually amazing and deserve mentioning. I loved Ollie’s character. Ollie was Graham’s professor in college and now his best friend. Him and his family were wonderful in the book and made for excellent second characters.
Verdict: It was a beautiful book loaded with many emotional moments. Read it, mortal.
