The Gravity of Us by Brittainy C. Cherry
Release Date: April 13th, 2017
Genre: 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.

Graham Russell is the reclusive best seller horror novelist. He is emotionally void and lost to the world of humanity. He can create stories of pure horror, evoking emotions from his readers but he cannot relate to the emotions he has penned on a personal level. His life is perfectly synchronized to revolve around his career and his writing. Although he’s married, he’s not emotionally invested in his wife. She is just another tool that he uses to make his life more covenient. His wife is cut from the same cloth and uses Graham the same way. Together their lives work like a well oiled machine until an unwanted pregnancy and the death of his father uproots their perfectly synchronized lives. The aftermath of what follows is the rebirth of Graham Russell becoming the man he always had the potential to be. The journey is paralyzing, extremely painful, eye opening, and the greatest joy he will ever experience. Graham Russell is becoming a member of the human race. He is going jump on the emotional rollercoaster and experience the thrilling ride called life. It all begins with meeting a weirdo hippy florist and the early birth of his child.
After Lucille’s mother died when she was eighteen, she was left with the task of keeping her family together. Her mother wanted her to keep her sisters together and become the glue during the hard times and good times. Her ability to love loudly was the strength they would all need throughout life. Her mother didn’t issue this task lightly, she knew who her daughters were at the very core and knew Lucy had the strength to love them unconditionally. A life threatening battle with cancer, a heart wrenching divorce, a sister who left their family behind after the burial,and all the new paths in life will not deter Lucy from her task. It was what she was born to do. She will never change. She will always love unconditionally even if it breaks her heart. She will always be eternally optimistic even when the world is collapsing beneath her feet. She will always have hope. She will always share her unconditional love and hope with anyone who crosses her path, including the pessimistic Graham Russell.
Graham Russell’s perfectly synchronized life fell apart when his daughter was born prematurely. It was the defining moment that changed his life forever even though his wife abandoned him with a dying child. That was the day he learned he could love unconditionally even though he had never experienced love in his life. Meeting Lucy, the weirdo hippy florist was the day the heavens sent an angel to guide him through the emotionally infested waters of life. Lucy taught Graham how to express his love. She gently guided him through his emotions and taught him how to give as well as receive love. She held his hand through thick and thin, she never let go when he thought he would sink, and she always encouraged him to do it better. She gave him the courage to become the man he was meant to be. She gave him unconditional love. How could he not fall in love with this angel? He’s determined to give Lucy the same kind of love she has given him and his daughter. He will always have her back even if it means letting her go.
Once again Brittainy C. Cherry has floored me with all the possibilities this novel offered. She has a true gift of portraying humanity in all it’s glory. Adding a beautiful romance gives the book more beauty. I highly recommend reading The Gravity Of Us.
