Review: The Gravity of Us by Brittainy Cherry
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."
Name: The Gravity of Us
Author: Brittainy Cherry
Series: Book Four of The Elements Series
Genre: Adult, Romance, Impossible Love, Sisterhood
The Gravity of Us is a riveting story of impossible but perfect and meant to be love. It allowed me to hope for love and for the beauty in the meant to be. The story is filled with raw emotions and it awakens feelings of romance that you left hidden. It is a chance to dive into a world where love makes everything better, even the most horrible of things and events.
Cherry is an amazing author, I have been honored to finally finish the Elements series and those books are breath stealers. The hard topics she uses to drive the stories, is what allows the reader to be completely enthralled with what we're reading. What she does best (apart from AMAZING dialogue, be prepared to highlight and scribble all your way through the books) is her characterization. No matter which book it is, whether you like the story or the plot, the characters are always the driving source behind them. She allows them to change and mold and become real people through her words, and seeing them developing throughout the story is really amazing.
"Real life was a mess of words that sometimes worked, and other times didn’t. Real life was an array of emotions that hardly made sense. Real life was a first draft novel with scribbles and crossed out sentences, all written in crayon"
The Gravity of Us was, for me, one of the most different books out of the 4 in the Elements series. All though they are all very unique, I felt the characters in this one were more free and the story line was purer in a way. There are very few sex scenes and the plot is very thick as well as the character's roles in the story line. I really loved it all, from the babies, to the hippie chick who's our amazing main character, to the evil and non evil sub characters we get to meet and suffer with (or because of).
All in all Cherry does it again, and I wish I could read the whole collection from the beginning. These books do really come alive.
