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.


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.

"She was the girl who felt everything, and I was the man who felt nothing at all."

I am a huge fan of Brittainy's writing, and I knew this book would be amazing. If you read the blurb, you know it doesn't really give you a clear idea of what to expect. I didn't even read it myself I dived right into it. I will keep the plot as vague as possible, just go in like me and enjoy the ride. I was intrigued by the characters right away. I loved Graham's occupation and thought it fit the story perfectly. Graham and Lucy are the polar opposite of each other. Graham is career driven, closed off, someone who you just can't read. He is very organized, cold and rude. However Lucy is all over the place: flighty, passionate, and emotionally overcharged. She is someone who wears her heart on her sleeve and you know exactly what she is feeling. I just loved how they first met, it was original and it really illustrated the differences between the two.

"I'd died a million deaths before I gave living a chance, and my first breath of life was taken from her lips."

They think they have nothing in common, when out of nowhere something happens and they are thrown together to handle the situation as best as they can. I really loved this turn of events. Graham had to adjust the most, it was very intriguing seeing him grow as an individual. Both of them have their demons and are dealing with things. They found peace in each other's arms. I especially loved the developments of them as a couple. They went from being annoyed with each other to best friends. This friendship meant the world to them. They saved each other from losing themselves. I just loved the dynamic between these two. I also loved the side characters and felt like they added another layer to the story, which was essential to the story. Be prepared to have your heart broken a couple of times.

"And I realized you were the first and only thing that ever made my heartbeats come to life."

I laughed, I cried, I got mad and felt many other emotions while I was reading this book. This book is more than just about love; it is about family, friendship, and overcoming and fighting your demons. Brittainy has done it again and took me on a amazing ride with her beautiful writing. She writes the most original and intriguing stories. I want less fat and more muscle in the books I read (I am not talking about body sizes here guys so don't start attacking me, it's about quality over quantity. You'll understand what I mean when you read the book.), and that is exactly what Brittainy gives me every time with her writing. I can't wait to see what she comes up with next, she is an automatic one-click author for me.
