I love a good tear jerker, I even enjoy an occasional angsty YA romance every now and then but this book was just too depressing. It's not just a sad beginning or heartbreaking flashback that does it. The entire book is just well, yeah, depressing. The heroine is one of the sweetest people and she just lets everyone dump on her over and over again. The hero is your typical brooding miserable "beast". I didn't feel a romantic connection between the H&H and was pretty bummed out.
Anyway, lots of other reviewers have given pretty detailed summaries of the story so I won't duplicate that here, I'll just give you some quick points to help you decide if this is something you want to borrow or buy.
1.) Cheating? Technically yes. Even though the hero stays celibate through pretty much the entire book he does eventually hook up with the heroine at the end while still married (though separated).
2.) Cliffhanger? Nope.
3.) HEA? Yep! A very satisfying one :)
4.) Graphic violence or anything that might make you cringe? No, it's not one of those types of books. You're good.
5.) Well written? God yes, BC is a sorceress!
6.) Sexual content? How hot was it? Too much? Not enough? Not enough. In fact this was just about two sentances away from being a "clean" romance. If you're looking for a hot steamy read, this ain't it.
7.) Would I recommend this book to my friends? No. I'd tell them to read anything else BC has written and skip this one.
8.) Premise/Trope? Second chance romance? Friends to lovers? This is a Beauty and the Beast story.
9.) POV? Dual.
Lucy and Graham’s story is original, beautiful, and completely unforgettable!
The Gravity of Us starts with Lucille Palmer. A heroine with loads of strength, love, and the biggest heart. Lucy has 2 older sisters and they all lost their free spirited mama years ago. Out of all the girls, Lucy is the one most like her mama. She’s sort of a ‘hippie weirdo’ and I mean that in the best possible way. Lucy is one of the best heroines I’ve ever read about and by far my favorite character Brittainy Cherry has ever written. I loved every single thing about her. And her nickname for Graham- best thing ever!!!
Lucy and Graham meet under interesting circumstances. It’s safe to say that they are opposites. Lucy is fun, free, and happy, where as Graham is taciturn, grounded, and grouchy. This is a story of opposites who are thrown together and some how, some way fall for each other. At first, Lucy drives Graham crazy, but with time, she grows on him. In fact, she is one of the very few people in this world Graham can stand. I loved how different they were from one another. Seeing the way Graham changed and evolved afters spending time with Lucy was one of my favorite parts of the story. I love how one person can come into your life and change everything for you.
I don’t want to delve too deep into the story. I loved all the moments that made me gasp and watching how everything came together. Just know this story is exceptional. It’s a forbidden(ish) love story, but it’s also a journey. These characters go through a lot but everything that happens happens for a reason (MAKTUB). Not only did I adore Lucy and Graham, but there were some exceptional supporting characters. Ollie was by far my favorite.
Brittainy’s writing is stunning. It’s epic and brilliant and just everything. Her stories are unlike any authors out there. Every book she writes is unique and emotional and she knows just how to get me in the feels. Every book Brittainy writes makes its way onto my favorites list. She’s that kind of author. Her books are truly special and one of a kind. So many of her quotes speak to me and I just can’t get enough!
The Gravity of Us pulled me in from the very first page and never let go. It moved me, made me think, made me feel, and made me fall in love. I laughed, I cried, I cried some more, but I was left with a full heart and a huge smile on my face when I was finished reading. This book is going on my all time favorites book and is my top read of 2017 so far! I give it 5+ stars and recommend it to everyone!!
