~*♥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.)

Reviewer: Melyssa
There’s one thing I know when I pick up any story by this author, and it’s simply this.

I will be moved. Altered. Ripped apart and pieced intricately back together by story’s end.

And that was definitely the case again with this story.

I actually finished this a few days ago, but any words I managed to string together at the time, didn’t seem to do the story that unfolded between the beginning and the end, justice. I don’t believe that even what I write now will. I can only hope that something I say moves someone else enough to want to try this author if they haven’t, or take another journey with her if they have before. It’s one of those books that you don’t want to know things about going in because you want to feel everything as it happens.

Right from the beginning, as with a lot of her previous works, the emotion was thick. It hit right away and it hit hard and when my heart wasn’t bleeding with these characters, it was crying with them. For them. Laughing with them. Feeling with them. But no one emotion more so than loving. I was learning to love with them. Falling all over again.

The main characters of this story were meant to be. Even as young children, I just knew. My heart was full whenever they spent any amount of time together, and even though their journey was in no way easy, both as individuals and as a team together, it was one worth taking. One heavy with feeling. Every emotion, every part, so very beautiful.

There were issues tackled here that I have known in my life and still experience in different forms to this day. Ones on a day to day basis. When something that I can identify with presents itself in a story, I’m equal parts excited and worried because reality in fiction, it’s a very thin line to work with. What was here, worked for me. There were aspects that differed a great deal from my own personal experience, but that’s as to be expected in a fictional tale as it is in real life. No two cases of anything are ever the same and I enjoyed the way the author handled them, even if to some, it may not have been handled the way they wish it to.

I will say that while I do have an attachment to every one of this authors stories, this one may be the one that stays with me the longest. A journey that as I move on to other books (which I haven’t been able to do as of yet lol), will always just be there, like an old friend. And it is definitely a book I would read again, if only to experience the magic that it provided. The very real magic between two people meant to be.

If you want a story that will move you right from the first page, gripping you and not letting go even when the story is over, with words that read like a melody, than this is the story for you. Just don’t go into it without about a year’s supply of tissues. Be prepared to feel, and feel a lot.

Brittainy Cherry, you have outdone yourself.

My thanks to the author and all others involved for letting me read a copy of this before official release. This was a journey, both individual and together that I’ll never be the same after taking.
