❝ He was him, I was me, and we were us. This was our story.❞
Eleanor Gable met Greyson East in high school when she was only sixteen years old. While young they developed a close relationship regardless of their families social positions, they both knew what they had was special.
❝ I’d spent so much time hiding in the shadows. I’d avoided people, because it felt safe being invisible.❞
They were both from two completely different worlds and yet they connected so deeply. Grey became Elenor’s strength during bad times and without even realizing Eleanor was Grey’s strength as well.
❝ I didn’t know it was possible. I didn’t know how quickly your heart could begin beating for someone who’s been just a stranger a few weeks before.❞
When tragic forced them to be apart, it was hard to keep that long distance friendship and connection until life and routines just completely took them both in total separate directions. Many years later life puts their paths together once again and what they once had was completely gone.
❝ How did he not feel the things I felt in that intense moment? And how could someone stand so tall while being weighed down by so much heaviness?.❞
My emotions were all over the place while reading this book. Eleanor & Grey was definitely a book full of feels but it also had so many funny moments. I absolutely love all the characters. It has been a while since I’ve read a book where I cried most of the story and I freaking love it hahaha. I felt so much reading this story and enjoyed it very much. This book would be appealing to readers looking for a book about damage souls with second chance romance.
…This was a F(BR) with War…

📖#currentlyreading📖 . #Eleanor&Grey by #brittainyccherry . . Expected publication date: April 8th 2019 . . 📚Blurb📚 Greyson East left his mark on me. As the young girl who first fell for him, I didn’t know much about life. I did know about his smiles, though, and his laughs, and the strange way my stomach flipped when he was near. Life was perfect…until it wasn’t, and when we were forced to go our separate ways, I held on to our memories, let go of my first crush, and wished for the day I’d find him again. When my wish came true, it was nothing like I imagined. I couldn’t have known when I took the nanny position that it would be his children I looked after, that my new boss would be that boy I used to know, that boy who was now a man—a cold, lonely, detached man. The smile and laugh I had loved so much were gone, now distant memories. Every part of him was covered in a fresh pain. When he realized who I was, he made me promise to do my job and my job only. He made me promise not to try to get to know him, not to recall the memories I’d treasured all this time. But, sometimes, I saw the boy I’d once known in his stormy eyes. I saw the Greyson who smiled and laughed, who had stolen a young girl’s heart, and there was no doubt in my mind that this boy was worth fighting for. I was given a second chance with the one who’d left his mark on me. All I hoped was that somehow I’d leave a mark on his soul, too. . . . . #craziesrusbookblog #arc #currentlyreading #romance #books #inthefeels #contemporary #standalone #aprilbookrelease #buddyreads #readingbuddy #blogger #bookblogger #werble #effect
