Review - The Fire Between High & Lo by Brittainy Cherry

Title: The Fire Between High & Lo
Series: Romance Elements #2
Author: Brittainy C. Cherry
Genre: Romance
 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.

My 5 Star Review
There are books that just hit you and stay with you, books that just floor you emotionally, this book did that for me. I swear from the beginning I felt this story, every word. 

"Because if you judge him sole on his few moments of lows, then you miss out on his beautiful highs.”

Logan and Alyssa are from two different worlds, but amongst the chaos and heartache in their lives they find each other. 

Logan is the son of a drug dealer and addict, the odds are stacked against him from the very beginning. Alyssa is the black sheep in her family, but her family has the means to allow her to pursue her dreams. Both of them don’t belong in their lives, but have different struggles. Alyssa and Logan are not a story of insta-love, they were friends first. I loved their friendship, it was so genuine and really allowed us to understand them as individuals. 

Obviously the connection grows into more, but their love is tested and tried when mistakes are made. The story spans multiple years, but delivered so perfectly you don’t feel like you missed out on anything. I loved seeing these little moments that allowed me to see how things progressed. 

"Because at the end of the day, we’re all just lost. We’re all cracked. We’re all scarred. We’re all broken. We’re all just trying." 

High and Lo, Alyssa and Logan, are two of my favorite characters, because they are both fighters. Their fight was different, but still required so much heart, determination and forgiveness. I love how this story made me think, it really showed how different our lives can/could be just based on circumstances out of our control. It also shows you that you can be more than your past and that anything is possible. 

Logan and Alyssa’s story is so unbelievably beautiful and genuine I couldn’t help but feel for them. It’s crazy that books can make you feel for fictional characters, it I did. It was like these events happened to two people I loved. That I actually experienced things with them. Brittainy always blows me away with her writing and The Fire Between Hi & Lo is no exception. 

I don’t even know how it’s possible for an author to continue to deliver such unique, emotional, heart wrenching reads that are written so perfectly, but she does. I don’t care what Brittainy writes I will always jump at the opportunity to read her stories.
