Title: The Fire Between High & Lo
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.
“You’re okay, Logan Francis Silverstone.”“I’m okay, Alyssa Marie Walters.”
When it comes to beautiful stories that make me feel and fall in love, no one does it like Brittainy C. Cherry. No one can write like this woman. She is probably the most talented author I’ve read. And I read a lot. Her words move me beyond belief and her writing style is so gorgeous, powerful and special. When I started The Fire Between High and Lo I had high expectations. I expected greatness and I wasn’t disappointed. Once again, B Cherry brought it.
Logan Francis Silverstone hasn’t had an easy life. His parents are addicts and the only person he has he can count on is his brother, Kellan. Then he meets Alyssa Marie Walters. And his life is forever changed. Lo and Alyssa become best friends. She is from the other side of town, her mother being a successful attorney- but that means nothing to Alyssa or Logan. Alyssa is the only person Logan truly lets in. She has his back and cares about him. She loves him unconditionally. Logan feels the same way about her.
“You’re my best friend, High.”“You’re my best friend, Lo.”
Eventually, things change between these two. Their friendship grows into something so much more. They still are the best of friends, but they love each other unequivocally and completely. They are always there for one another. They share their hopes and dreams. Logan’s home life is not ideal, it’s hard. Alyssa’s is hard too in a different way. Things aren’t always good for them, but they always have each other.
Until everything changes. Que broken heart. Logan is broken. His issues and self-deprecation contribute to many choices he makes that turn his life upside down. And at the same time, turn Alyssa’s life upside down as well.
We were so broken. We were so worn out from the lives that we lived. But tonight we made love with the broken pieces. It was intense, it was sacred, it was heartbreaking. It had it’s highs, it had it’s lows. It was us. I missed us so much.
Alyssa and Logan’s story isn't always easy to read. They have just as many hard times as good times, and just as many ugly moments as beautiful. As low as some of the lows can be, the highs are so so high. I fell in love with this couple. I rooted for them both. My heart broke for them. As they healed, so did I.
“If you judge him solely his moments of lows, then you miss out on his beautiful highs.”
Alyssa is so strong. I was amazed by her determination and strength. She loves Logan so much and I love that she was always the high point in his life. Logan was amazing as well. I love a broken soul who finds the person who helps them heal. This couple was perfectly imperfect. Friends, lovers, soulmates, the perfect match.
Cherry has that ‘it’ factor when it comes to her writing. I recommend all her books. Every single one. Every story she’s written has been completely unforgettable to me and The Fire Between High and Lo is another to add to the list! This book did have some angst- but it was the good kind of angst. The kind that makes your heart stop and makes it hard to breathe. I live for these kinds of books!
If you’re looking for a love story that will move you, that is stunning and beautifully written, one that may break your heart a bit- but will certainly put it back together, pick this one up! A 5 star favorite for me!!!
“For always, High?”“For always, Lo.”
