REVIEW – THE FIRE BETWEEN HIGH & LO (Elements, #2) by Brittainy C. Cherry

The Fire Between High and Lo Ebook Cover

SYNOPSIS:

There once was a boy, and I loved him.

Logan Francis Silverstone was the complete opposite of me. I danced while he stood still. He was quiet, and I was always running my mouth. He struggled to find a smile while 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. I 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.

***

We were closer than I ever knew any people to ever be. He was a part of me in every way possible, our lives twining together as if were one flame burning together.

Teaser 2

Brittainy Cherry has another HIT on her hands with this one. I knew when the buzz first started going on about this book that I just had to read it. This author has the gift of being able to create such beautiful and memorable characters who suffer from enormous heartbreak but are able to overcome huge obstacles while also capturing the reader’s heart. Her secondary characters are also such complex individuals that always add so much more depth to the storyline. Once I picked this one up, it was literally hard to put down. The writing is exquisite. I couldn’t stop highlighting so many passages because I found so much beauty within the pages of this book. This story also contained two of my favorite tropes – friends to lovers, and second chance romance. So how could you go wrong with a formula like that??!!!

Alyssa Walters, aka HIGH, and Logan Silverstone, aka LO, met and became the best of friends when they were around fifteen years old. They came from polar opposite worlds. Alyssa’s mother was a successful attorney and they lived in a large house in a gated community. Logan lived in a tiny one-bedroom apartment on the wrong side of town, with his mother who was a drug addict and part-time prostitute. What they both had in common was that they each had negligent and abusive parents, but wished with all their heart that they could just be loved by them. Eventually, Logan and Alyssa will find it hard to deny their feelings for each other and once they give in, the two become inseparable.

Unfortunately, a misunderstanding causes a rift between them and ultimately results in tragedy. The two are forced to spend some time apart when Lo checks himself into Rehab. What was only supposed to be a six-month stint, ends up turning into a five-year separation. During his time away, “High” sends “Lo” daily texts and voicemails that always go unanswered. My heart broke over and over for Alyssa. She loved Logan with all of her heart and tried so hard to let him know that she would always be there for him. I wanted to kick Logan for avoiding her because even though I kind of understood why he kept his distance, I still felt he was being pigheaded.

Family issues force Logan to return back home and since Logan’s older brother is living with and engaged to Alyssa’s older sister, there is no way they can avoid each other. When they come face to face once again, no matter how hard they try, they will be unable to fight their feelings for each other.

But can Alyssa get over the fact that Logan left her when she needed him most of all? And can Logan get over his hang-ups and will he finally realize that he is the only man that was meant to own Alyssa’s heart? Or will another tragedy send Logan back into another downward spiral that he will not be able to recover from?

This is one of those books where once you start it, you will find it hard to put it down for even a second, so I advise that you start this book when you have enough time to devote to it. I have a feeling that those who had issues with the first book in this series, will end up really loving this one. Even though this is book two in the ELEMENTS series, it can be read as a standalone.

-“Some things-the best things-are always worth fighting for.”

 

Logan Silverstone & Alyssa Walters meet as teenagers living in True Falls, Wisconsin. They are complete opposites in so many ways, but still become the best of friends. They both have hopes & dreams, but while Alyssa is living a comfortable life, Logan was dealt a tragic life, where he constantly feels as if he’s drowning. Things are bad for him, & never seem to get better. The one thing they do share is they both longed to be loved by their parents & matter to them. As the friends grow closer, things turn more romantic & intimate between them. Suddenly Alyssa becomes everything good in Logan’s life.

 

-She is my world.

-She didn’t notice how she sparked my heart each time she stood near me.

-All my thoughts were her

 

Logan’s life continues to spiral out of control, & it causes him & Alyssa to separate. They are apart for a while, but eventually find their way back to one another. No matter how much time passes, their hearts are always connected, & they remain each others home. As usual Brittainy Cherry’s writing is stunningly beautiful!

 

 

-He was everything good in my life.

-He was the person I went to each and every time anything hurt or whenever I felt afraid. Like home. Logan was home to me.

-It was crazy how it happened. How one boy could still, after all these years, control every beat of my heart.

-You’re my heart. You’re my soul. I want you. All of you.
