The Gravity of Us (Elements #4) by Brittainy C. Cherry

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.

"It’s just funny, isn’t it? How the main characters never know about the adventures they’re about to go on.”

I keep thinking at some point, a book will be unable to stun me, to take my breath away, to cripple my mind with talent anymore.  And then Brittainy writes another book and just shoots that theory all to hell.

Each book spun out from this magical author I find myself saying "oh, this is the best one yet."  I've read the entire series and they each are amazing, my "favorite," and special to me in their own way.  Each so individual, yet so mind-blowingly well-written.  

The quotes, the lines, the plots, the spins.  Brittainy has a style of her own, in her own league.  Magic with words that literally grip me.  She reaches into my chest and pulls out my heart. She reaches into my head and massages my brain.  The characters are magical.  The lines are breathtaking.  The plot is imaginative.

While the book has devastating spots... it also has devastatingly beautiful parts too.  And the humor.  Oh man... throw in a dash of humor and witty character banter and we have a winner.  Let's face it.  This one was a winner as soon as Brittainy brainstormed it.

If nothing else, read the scene when Graham does hot yoga, you're doing yourself a solid.  Just kidding.  You need to read the whole book.  But trust me on this... you will be giggling imagining Graham (or Stu) doing this hot yoga scene.

Brittainy definitely has been eating her writing Cheerios.  Stunning.  Just stunning.  Brittainy remains one of my top favorite authors of all time.
