Disgrace by Brittainy C. Cherry BLOG TOUR


Disgrace, an all-new romantic and emotional standalone from Brittainy C. Cherry is available NOW!

Each day I prayed for my husband to love me again.
After fifteen years together, he walked away from me, and into the arms of another.
I didn’t know how to cope. I didn’t know my worth. I didn’t know how to exist without him by my side.
All I wanted was for him to come back to me.
Then, Jackson Emery appeared.
He was supposed to be a distraction for my mind. A summer fling. A confidence boost to my bruised heart.
We were perfect for one another, because we both knew we wouldn’t last. Jackson didn’t believe in commitment, and I no longer believed in love. He was too closed-off for me, and I was too damaged for him.
Everything was fine, until one night my heart skipped a beat.
I didn’t expect him to make me laugh. To make me think. To make my sadness somewhat disappear.
When our time was up, my heart didn’t know how to walk away.
Each day I prayed for my husband to love me again, yet slowly my prayers began to shift toward the man who wasn’t right for me.
I prayed for one more smile, one more kiss, one more laugh, one more touch…
I prayed for him to be mine.
Even though I knew his heart wasn’t destined to love.

Disgrace by Brittainy C. Cherry

My rating: 3 of 5 stars


Firstly, a BBC book is very angsty, emotional and gritty. You have to know that going in because even for this angsty lover, her stories can be very prominent and powerful, smacks you right up in your face. And I so wanted to love this book because I am a huge fan of BCC but unfortunately, it fell flat for me.

The story within it self is good. A preacher's daughter is left broken hearted due to her marriage breakdown after numerous miscarriages. She returns to her hometown for the summer to be consoled and comforted by her family but the most appeasement she receives (after a very rocky start) is from the black sheep of the town, the guy from the wrong side of the tracks.

I have a favourite quote from Charlotte Bronte - "Crying does not indicate that you are weak. Since birth, it has always been a sign that you are alive", and I believe this wholeheartedly. But Grace took crying to another level, and other parts of this book were also over the top. The way they met was so dramatic and unrealistic, and their encounter left me rolling my eyes. I kept wondering how Jackson was earning a living at the auto shop while sitting in the sun with Tucker or reading at The Silent Bookshop. Another part was predicable as to who the husband was having an affair with and the extreme gossiping of a small town add with the "royalty" of the preacher's family was aggravating.

At around the half way mark, I was starting to enjoy the complexities of Jackson and Grace. I appreciated how she was someone that didn't know her own self and was taking time to discover that. He too needed to learn this about himself but also that he had to learn to chase his own dream. The last few chapters of the book again went to the excessive. It was all wrapped up a little too fluffy for my preference and this made it seem too perfect. I haven't lost hope, I know that not all books are going to be to my liking. I will certainly give BCC books another go.

*I voluntarily read an early copy of this book.

Jackson “I’ve read about boys like you in books, ya know,” she whispered, her fingers slowly spinning spirals on my chest. “Oh, yeah? What did those books teach you about boys like me?” “Well…” She bit her bottom lip, and with a small inhalation, she whispered, “They taught me to stay away.” “Then why are you so close?” She tilted her head up, looking me straight in the eyes. “Because in those stories, the heroine never ever listens.” “And then there’s trouble?” I asked. “Yes, and then there’s trouble.” From the way she said those words, I knew trouble was exactly what she was in search of. We were the classic cliché. She was the good girl next door, I the monster from around the block. We were perfect opposites for the perfect storm, and she was asking me to be her next flaw, her greatest mistake. And, well, who was I not to live up to her request? “I could destroy you,” I warned. “Or save me.” “Is it worth the risk?” “Isn’t it always worth the risk?” The more she touched me, the more I wanted to touch her back. I wrapped my hands around her wrists flipping us around so she was now against the wall with her hands above her head. “I have rules.” I leaned in closer, lightly brushing my lips against her neck. God, she smelled good, like peaches and my next sin. “You can’t break these rules, either.” My tongue rolled from my mouth and circled against her neck before I gently sucked her skin. She shivered at my touch. “What are they?” “Rule one,” I whispered, my mouth moving across her collarbone. “You never stay the night.” “Check.” “Rule number two,” I said, dropping her left arm to the side. Taking my hand to the bottom of her blouse, I slowly raised it up and massaged her skin. “You never develop feelings.” “That’s easy enough,” she replied, her breaths uneven as I teased at the top button on her jeans. “I don’t believe in feelings anymore.” I didn’t know why, but that made me sad for her. I, too, didn’t believe in falling for people, but that was my norm. Grace seemed the type to believe in something bigger than love, so the fact that her belief was completely gone was a bit surprising. Maybe we had more in common than I thought. “Rule number three…we don’t talk about my life.” “Like ever?” “Never.” “Okay.” “And lastly, rule number four…” My mouth brushed against hers, and I slid my tongue slowly across her bottom lip. “If your favorite pair of panties get ripped, don’t expect me to replace them.”
