Title: The Fire Between High & Lo
Series: Romance Elements #2
Author: Brittainy C. Cherry
Release Date: March 25, 2016
There once was a boy, and I loved him.
Logan Francis Silverstone and I were complete opposites. I danced, and he stood still. He was quiet, while I ran my mouth. He struggled to find a smile, and I refused to frown.
The night I saw the darkness that truly lived inside of him, I couldn't look away.
We were broken together, yet somehow whole. We were wrong together, but always right. We were the stars that burned across the night sky, searching for a wish, praying for better tomorrows.
Until the day I lost him. He threw us away with one hasty decision--a decision that changed us forever.
There once was a boy, and I loved him.
And for a few breaths, a few whispers, a few moments, I think he loved me, too.
I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.
“High. Low. Heaven. Hell. Him. Me. Us.”
My heart races after I read a Brittainy C. Cherry book. Always. And this one? This was no exception. The Fire Between High & Lo gave me LIFE.
“But sometimes, when Alyssa Marie Walters said she loved me, I kind of wished I could say it back. But I didn’t love. I hardly liked.”
Logan Silverstone and Alyssa Walters don’t exactly get off to a wonderful start the moment they meet. He needs help. She gives it. He doesn’t want it. But there’s a spark between them. And this spark becomes a friendship. Until a friendship is no longer possible. The spark is now a fire and there is no way to escape.
“Because if your judge him solely on his few moments of lows, then you miss out on his beautiful highs.”
Logan doesn’t know love. He’s never felt love. Not the soul shattering kind of love that leaves you breathless. Not until Alyssa. His high. How do you give something you’ve never felt? Never given? Can broken people love? Well Logan? He gives his heart. His soul. All to Alyssa. Soon enough he doesn’t know how to breathe without loving Alyssa. But one day he stops listening to his heart. And the insecurities take over. He’s left to deal with the consequences.
“I want you, I want the scars. I want the burns. I want your mess. Your scars, your burns, your mess-that’s my heart.
Logan and Alyssa battle a lot of demons in their story. I definitely commend the author for brilliantly tackling such sensitive and relevant subjects. Their story isn’t an easy one. You FEEL everything. Their love is powerful and transcending. Their love is relentless and profound. Even in darkness, their love is light.
“She didn’t notice it, did she? She didn’t notice how she sparked my heart each time she stood near me.”
This emotionally charged, beautifully written story attests to all that love can endure. All that love can overcome. The Fire Between High & Lo is raw, gritty, and so real. The author never holds back. You FEEL two shattered people fall in love. Slowly, irrevocably. Their love saves, it heals. Their love hurts. Their love is selfish. Their love breaks promises. Their love will push you. You will rejoice in their love. You will cry. For their love is overwhelming
“There it is again?”
“There what is?”
“The small glimpses of the boy I used to love.”
Logan and Alyssa’s story moved me beyond words. I don’t think there are words to truly capture the beautiful brilliance and shear profoundness of this book. I am in absolute awe of the strength and resiliency displayed not only by Logan and Alyssa but by all of the characters. There is so much I want to say that happens in this book, but it is up for the reader to experience. What I will say is that if you must choose one book to read this year, make sure it’s this one.
Brittainy Cherry has been in love with words since the day she took her first breath. She graduated from Carroll University with a Bachelors Degree in Theatre Arts and a minor in Creative Writing. She loves to take part in writing screenplays, acting, and dancing--poorly of course. Coffee, chai tea, and wine are three things that she thinks every person should partake in! Brittainy lives in Milwaukee, Wisconsin with her family. When she's not running a million errands and crafting stories, she's probably playing with her adorable pets.
Three book besties who love to read and discuss books. We are addicted to all kinds of romance with Alpha Hero's, Kick-ass Heroine's and plenty of angst.
