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.

Lucy & Graham met in a back alley after a funeral.
His father's funeral - she delivered the flowers.
He's the hard-hearted, rude, broody, non-smiling, non-feeling author.

She's the happy little weirdo hippie with alllll the feels in the world.

But still there was some kind of connection. Some kind of ... something ... everything.
But then with one door opening their whole lives are changing, and what could've been the start of something, is the start of something completely different.
But ... there's still a chance for Lucy to thaw the smile and heart of Graham. Maybe there could still be a happily ever after for all of them ....

Huh, the what ??? you ask?
What is happening to Lucy & Graham?
Will there be a HEA????

UGH this book!
Brittainy and her #TalesOfFeels! Jeez!
You can't help it - you're crying sooo much!!
That doesn't mean that everything's all sad and everyone is dying. I'm just a really easy cryer in books!
And Brittainy really knows how to write those books!!! But don't be afraid - it wasn't all that bad this time ☺☺☺ 

I just loved this book!
Lucy and Graham couldn't have been more different. It's sooo fun to watch this beautiful hippie girl, with daisies in her hair, smile at the grumpy thriller author, trying to get him to live a little. Just adorable.

Of course the reader is constantly afraid that we might not get the happy ending we're hoping for. Some people might come back to stir up trouble. But we can hope. And we'll have an amazing time reading the story in the meantime!

You'll cry, you'll chuckle, you'll want to slap some people ... but most of all you'll just love and ... FEEL!

THE GRAVITY OF US was the most adorable & beautiful lovestory! A bit like Beauty & the Beast - the pretty girl in her yellow dress trying to thaw the beast's heart.... will she succeed?
Run to your nearest amazon for your own #GrumpyGraham and find out! ☺


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.
