Release Blitz with Review: The Silent Waters by Brittainy C. Cherry

Title: The Silent Waters 
Series: Romance Elements #3
Author: Brittainy C. Cherry
Genre: Romance 
Release Date: September 22, 2016



Our lives are a collection of moments. Some utterly painful and full of yesterday's hurts. Some beautifully hopeful and full of tomorrow's promises.

I’ve had many moments in my lifetime, moments that changed me, challenged me. Moments that scared me and engulfed me. However, the biggest ones—the most heartbreaking and breathtaking ones—all included him.

I was ten years old when I lost my voice. A piece of me was stolen away, and the only person who could truly hear my silence was Brooks Griffin. He was the light during my dark days, the promise of tomorrow, until tragedy found him. Tragedy that eventually drowned him in a sea of memories.

This is the story of a boy and girl who loved each other, but didn’t love themselves. A story of life and death. Of love and broken promises.

Of moments.

(Book Three in the Elements Series. Complete Standalone.)

There are very few times throughout the year I can say that I have a book hangover, and that's what this book has me nursing right now. I have a pile of ARCs to start reading, and I just can't move past this hauntingly beautiful story. These characters are truly a feast for every starving reader out there. They satisfy that craving for a book that will bring you to your knees.

Tall words, I know.
But truth, nonetheless.

Powerful, impactful, memorable. That is what you get with The Silent Waters. You slip into this book's shores gently, and get covered in a wave of emotion before you can blink.

Maggie and her father are drifting after her mother leaves, never staying in one place too long. But when he meets Katie everything changes. They have a new home, a new family, and a chance at happiness again. She settles into her life there and flourishes. As a child, Maggie has a light about her that shines and blinds everyone in her path. Most of all, her father. They have the type of relationship and bond that will melt you into a gooey puddle. The unconditional love that they have between them was absolutely beautiful. It not only grew in the happier times, but held solid in the darker days. They made my heart so happy.

"The world keeps spinning because your heartbeats exist." He'd said those words to me every single day, as long as I could remember.

Brooks is her brother's Calvin's best friend and though he tries to hate her, her charm was irresistible. The beginning of their story is just about the cutest thing I've read. Their letters to one another made me feel warm all over, and I fell so easily into how they begin to connect.

One moment in ten-year old Maggie's day is the turning point in her life. Her bright light is dimmed and nothing will ever be the same again.


Maybe I'd fallen so deep into the back of my mind that I'd never have to remember what it was like to feel, to hurt, to break, to breathe.

Maggie's pain and inner demons will cut you deep. Her daily battle to fight back the fear and anxiety that plagues her is difficult enough. But the effects on everyone around her are large and staggering. Like a fissure in the strong foundation of their family, they slowly started to crack under the strain. One constant through it all, through all the aches of her struggle was Brooks. His ability to listen to her, to hear her without words became her comfort and her home. Sharing their love of music and books together, they become inseparable and their time together treasured.

Evolving past friendship wasn't the choice you would imagine. It just was. It was a realization more than a choice, these two people accepting what they were. They slipped easily into passion, and Brooks and Maggie were everything you could ask for. But time moves on, and Maggie is frozen in place.

I've never read a story like this. One that will make you hurt and happy, then fearful and excited at the same time. My emotions were turning in every direction, leaving me feeling wrung out and limp. Turning the pages becoming like a traumatic relief. You want her to conquer everything that imprisons her, what she holds inside so silently.

In my mind, I whispered back to him, time and time again. With every tear and every heartbeat, I spoke to him. So quiet, yet so loud.
I love you, too. I love you, too. I love you too...

Maggie and Brooks have a love story that's not simple or easy, nor is it convenient. But it's patient, and gentle, and everything right about falling for someone who fits you completely in every corner of yourself. I always come away from a Brittany C. Cherry book feeling overwhelmed with the enormity of what she expresses in her stories. How she manages to wreck you so painfully but make the end point of the journey so unforgettably good never ceases to amaze me.

I have high standards when it comes to this author because I know what she can deliver and once again she came through with flying colors. In fact, this is probably sitting in the top spot now as my favorite book by her, which is really saying something. Now if you'll excuse me, I'm going to go shout from the rooftops now to anyone who will listen to give this book a chance.

"It's not fair, you know, because every time I tried to move on your love kept pulling me back."
