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.
I don’t know why I don’t fangirl over Brittainy C. Cherry more. I mean I’ve loved every book she’s written. Her books leave me an emotional mess. Well you know what? It stops today. I’m an official fangirl as of this moment! This. Freaking. Book. was everything. It ripped my heart out. It made me laugh until my stomach hurt. It made me swoon. It made me almost throw my kindle. This. Freaking. Book. I mean I’m kind of speechless. I loved the main characters. I loved how they fell in love. There were no long glances, heated moments, or tingles when they touched. They fell in love so quietly, it was like… gravity. OMG! How did Brittainy do it?! It was so subtle and beautiful to watch. I can’t even wrap my head around the writing. How she chose each word and interaction to represent this epic love story as gravity is beyond me. So freaking beyond. Graham and Lucy were perfect MCs. They were extremely authentic and likeable. Even though Graham was an iceberg, I loved watching him thaw. He was hilariously mean at times. Lucy was just Lucy. She was a ball of love and acceptance. They were just what the other needed. But the supporting characters breathed life into this story. Gah!!! The relationship ARCs were amazing and they broke my heart. This. Book. Just read it and love it as much as I did. It was one of my favorite reads this year.
I’m so glad to know I’m not the only one who was a mess at the end of this book. I felt like Lucy, tears streaming down my face, wiping them away to continue reading. I LOVED this story. Graham was possibly the worst person when we started this journey. Watching him open his heart was so beautiful. It started with his daughter and moved onto Lucy. And Lucy, Lucy was herself and nothing more but that was more than enough. The girl who felt everything. Graham and Lucy’s love story was so gradual and natural. It made sense even when it didn’t. I loved the way pieces of their history was intertwined. Such an amazing story!!
