Publisher's Summary

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.

✫✫ 4 Stars ✫✫

While I love this author and all of her books, I found this book to a little predictable. I knew where it was going from the beginning and when the "bomb" dropped I had been waiting for it.

I have to say though that I loved how the author made Graham grow so much in this book. At first I wasn't sure if there was anything that could make me like him. I like guys who can be jerks but he was just an Ass in the beginning for no reason. By the end he had grown on me so much! Love a happy ending that makes your heart smile!

Erin Mallon is amazing! I love her narration and love when she works all alone! Her male voice is perfect and she doesn't even need a co-narrator!

Sweet

This story is like all of Brittainy Cherry's books. Filled with love, heartbreak, life lessons and sweetness.

Graham has a hardened heart, Lucy has the softest. Together there is bound to be a whole lot of drama, all tied up with a little girl named Talon.

There are a few things that I just didn't understand. Lucy's sister Mara is one of them. The reasons for her decisions were a little difficult for me to believe but for the most part I thoroughly enjoyed the story.

Erin Mallon was perfection. She always is. She really embodied the free spirit of Lucy. Brian Pallino was good. His female voice comes across a little disingenuous but otherwise great.

Heartwarming love story!

A cold closed off man meets a free spirited loving woman in this audiobook by Brittany Cherry. There are three sisters in this story and the book is just as much about their relationship as it is the romance between the hero and heroine. Does our upbringing create who we really are or do we define that ourselves? That's the question that's the center of this story. Told in a captivating narrative, this audiobook kept me wanting to hear more. The narration was well performed also.

Loved It

I loved this book even though I wanted to smack a couple sisters. I loved the unique storyline and the main characters were well written. This is a re-read for me.

4 The Gravity of Us Stars

First I am going to say it… I did NOT like Graham through most of this book, but he does grow on you. His heart was sooo closed off for so many years. It’s no wonder he was so cold. But as I said he thaws and so does that heart of his and when he finally lets someone in well it is pretty sweet.

Lucille aka Lucy carries so much hurt and pain inside of her, she feel so much of everything. She might be a free spirit on the outside but she isn’t on the inside. She isn’t free to be who she is because she is busy being for everyone else.

Both characters go through ups and downs, and there friendship is what drew me the most. I loved that they both opened up and were themselves with each other without forcing it.

There were a few scenes that really cracked me up, the yoga scenes both of them were really great. And I liked the meeting of the girl at the funeral. She was funny when she looked into her lap and said what she did.

Over all I enjoyed this installment of the series, was it my favorite no, but that’s ok it was a great book and one I am glad I listened to.

And let’s talk about the narrators; Erin is a favorite female narrator of mine. So right there I was hooked she always makes it seem like your apart of the story.
Brian too is a great male narrator and I love everything he has done. So him being Graham was fantastic, I love his voice.

*You don't have to like my review but its 100% my opinion, and I am allowed to have it.*

Better books by this wonderful Author

The story is interesting, characters are interesting but it drags along and then seems to hurry up to conclude it. I always enjoythe extreme character development but felt towards the end there was a whole lot that went unfinished. I always do enjoy the books by Brittainy C Cherry, I listened to the whole thing but was completely bummed at the ending being rushed.

My fave in the Elements series

5 stars — Oh you guys. This one just got to my heart, and I loved it!! It’s been awhile since I read The Silent Waters, but I’m pretty sure this is my favourite Elements series read.

I listened to this one on audiobook again, and I pretty much had the same feelings about the narrators as in The Air He Breathes. I enjoyed them, I liked their different voices for different characters, but they don’t necessarily make my faves list. I actually think I liked Ms. Mallon’s Graham voice better than Mr. Pallino’s. Again, that’s TOTALLY personal taste stuff, nothing to do with the quality of the narration.

As with The Air He Breathes, I totally predicted quite a few of the twists…at the beginning and at the end. But that didn’t bring down my enjoyment whatsoever, it’s just hard waiting for that shoe to drop, you know? Luckily the beginning twist happened fairly quickly…I was worried about that.

As always, I was concerned at the beginning, because Graham truly was as cold as the blurb suggests…cold to the point of rudeness, and maybe just a smidge of cruelty. I found I was able to adjust to that quality in him since we got glimpses of how he got that way right from the start…and more and more as the book went on. So while on another character that might have turned me off, I was still able to leave room in my heart for him… And boy, was he quick to fill up that space. Watching him thaw—watching him let down his walls—was almost a privilege, you know? I was just rooting for him so hard. My heart hurt for the little boy he was and the man he became. I loved that it wasn’t a quick transformation, but that both Talon (no idea the spelling b/c audiobook) and Lucy wiggled their way inside and showed his heart how to beat. *sigh*

Lucy was…like a breath of fresh air. Her heart just came across so pure. I loved the way she loved her loved ones…how she went all in, caution to the wind. She really was a hippie weirdo, but in all the best ways. She was sweet, stubborn, sassy, and…well, Graham nailed it: PURE. I will admit I was a bit concerned with her fierce stance against certain things with her sister Mari (spelling?). It wasn’t that I didn’t understand her underlying feelings and agree with them. But I was concerned b/c she wasn’t trying to understand how Mari got to that place. But I was okay with how that all worked out. I also really appreciated how her relationship with Lyric worked out as well…I liked that it wasn’t a happy ending necessarily, but that there was some closure.

As for the Graham and Lucy together? I felt their connection right away…but not in the love sense…just that they recognized something in each other. I was HELLA concerned about a cheating aspect to this story, b/c that’s a button issue for me, but that worked out in a way I was satisfied with. I really loved that we got to watch their relationship grow from begrudging to friendship to more. I felt all of those steps.

And can I just say that Graham Cracker might be the single best nickname ever? I loved it every time Lucy used it.

I LOVED Ollie, Mary, Carla and Suzy. I loved what Ollie brought to the story, and what he brought to Graham particularly. He was a very impactful secondary character.

So yeah. This one was a success. These books have a different feel from the usual contemps I read…a bit more serious I guess. Not without their lightness, just lots of feelz. I’ll definitely be looking to finish the series with Fire sometime later this year.

Too drawn out for my tastes.

I just didn't care for this book. It took too long to get to the HEA. Overall a good story, it was just nothing special to me.

I lived every moment of this book

This book was a whirlwind of emotion and just oh so good! When it started I had no idea where the story was going to go as I went in blind (book was recommended to me by a friend). I laughed. I cried. I inhaled this book and totally lived every moment of the audio ... it was exactly the kind of book I needed right now.
