Author: Brittainy C. Cherry
Release Date: March 25, 2016
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
5 “you’re my greatest high” STARS
This is the second book in the Elements series and also my second read of the talented Brittainy Cherry. I was in awe of her after reading The Air He Breathes and now, now, with this one, she has me on my knees.
Talk about a writer that can effortlessly evoke so many emotions and craft such wonderfully layered, heart wrenching and heartwarming stories.
Logan Francis Silverstone and Alyssa Marie Walters
“I met my best friend in the checkout lane of a grocery store. And my life was never the same again.”
“She came from a lifestyle where fancy dinners were normal. I came from a world where dinner wasn’t always available.”
High and Lo’s friendship is special and of course, grows into something much more.
“We were different in so many ways, except for the one which was the biggest fire that burned in us.”
Both of them have their demons but Logan’s are darker, larger and more powerful. As things get bigger and more real, everything comes crashes down around them and pulls them apart.
“Because after the highs always, always, came the lows.”
This is a hard read in that it’s real, their relationship isn’t always pretty and there are some pretty dark and sad lows. I loved both of these characters and despite the mistakes and ugliness, these two deserved their happiness. I laughed, loved and cry with these two.
“…love wasn’t a prize. It was a weapon.”
“The bruises on one’s heart were always the hardest ones to heal, they seemed to last the longest.”
There was a beautiful symbiotic nature to the writing and flow of this story. For every beautiful, limitless high, Cherry gave us a devastatingly harsh low but combined, this is one stunningly breathtaking story that will move you, break you and renew you.
This is a must read!!
