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.
“Everything in life happened for a reason, happened exactly how it was meant to, no matter how painful it seemed. Some love stories were meant to be forever, and others just for a season.”
“She was the girl who felt everything, and I was the man who felt nothing at all.”
“I would’ve been certain love was an urban legend, something made only for fairytale books. But the way those people stared at one another, the way they loved so freely and loudly…True, romantic love was real.”
A beautiful, emotional and unexpected read.
I will be the first to admit, when I got my hands on this book, the bar was set high. This is has been one of my most coveted and most loved series’ and knowing that it was coming to an end….yeah, my expectations were extremely high. Never in my wildest dreams could I have imagined the special and unique story she was about to tell. No way was I prepared for this beautiful and most unexpected journey. So, my expectations, yeah she took those and threw them out the window and delivered a truly unforgettable read.
The Gravity of Us is the fourth and final book in the Elements Series. It is told from dual points of view and is a stand-alone novel. From the moment you pick up this book, you will be drawn into Lucy’s story. Lucy is such a special and unique woman. She lives her life full of emotions and is the girl that feels everything. Never could she imagine that her life would lead her towards Graham. Graham is her opposite in every way imaginable. He is cold, lives inside his head and lives his life void of emotion. So, while these two couldn’t be more different, fate is about to make them cross paths and change the course of their lives forever.
The Gravity of Us in incredibly well written and utterly spellbinding. Before you know it you will be totally consumed and lost in the story of Graham and Lucy. Graham and Lucy are so perfectly imperfect. Their relationship is not easy and is probably one of the most enjoyable slow building, slow burning romances that I’ve read. The friendship they build is complex and real and shows the power of true love and friendship. Their story pulled at my heart and was impossible to put down.
The Gravity of Us was simply beautiful and the story totally unexpected. My emotions were taken on one heck of a roller-coaster ride. I laughed. I cried. I swooned and wanted to yell. I fell in love and believed in second chances. There were so many beautiful moments that I know I’ll never forget. Simply put, I adored this book.
*I was provided an ARC copy of this book, in exchange for an honest review*
We didn’t know how to act with one another after our first kiss. Our situation wasn’t the norm when it came to building a relationship. We did everything backward. I fell in love with a boy before our first kiss, and he fell for a girl who he wasn’t allowed to have. Our connection, our heartbeats, matched one another in our fairytale world, but in reality, society deemed us as an awful accident.
Maybe we were an accident—a mistake.
Maybe we were never supposed to cross each other’s paths.
Maybe he was only meant to be a lesson in life and not a permanent mark.
But still, the way he kissed me…
Our kiss was as if heaven and hell collided together, and each choice was right and wrong at the same exact time. We kissed as if we were making a mistake and the best decision all at once. His lips made me float higher, yet somehow descend. His breaths somehow made my heart beat faster as it came to a complete halt.
Our love was everything good and bad wrapped in one kiss.
A part of me knew I should’ve regretted it, but the way his lips warmed up the cold shadows of my soul…the way he left his mark on me…
I’d never regret finding him, holding him, even if we only had those few seconds as one.
He’d always be worth those tiny seconds we shared.
He’d always be worth that soul-connecting feeling we created when our lips touched.
He’d always be the one I spent my nights dreaming of being near.
He’d always be worth it to me.
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.
After we went home that night, we didn’t talk about it at all. Not the following week, either. I focused on Talon. Graham worked on his novel. I believed both of us were waiting for the right time to come up for us to speak about it, but that was the tricky thing about timing: it was never right.
Sometimes you just had to leap and hope you didn’t fall.
