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.
5 Star Review by Ashley
My heart is full of hope and love and gratitude for Brittainy C. Cherry for writing this book. It touched a special place inside of me and is seared into my soul. And it wasn't just the pain and turmoil that both Grace and Jackson lived through and with, it was the healing that they found. The beauty that grew from their pain.
Grace is her name in action. Through all the heartbreak, her seven hearts, the unimaginable betrayal from those closest to her, she still found a way to put others first. She gave so much of herself that at the end of it all, she didn't have anything left for herself. That is until Jackson came running into her life.
These two couldn't have been more opposite if they tried, and oh did they. Jackson with his anger and brokenness and hurt. Grace with her gentleness and kindness and hurt. But there was something so powerful in everything that wasn't said. In the quite moments. In the pages they lost themselves in. He shook her to her core, and she returned the favor. But my favorite thing was how they both learned to love who they were. Flaws, fears and faults. She gave him a place to lay down his anger and he gave her a place to grieve and feel.
Disgrace slayed me in the best way. It was honest, real and yes, at times painful. There was more than one time I wanted to wrap Grace and Jackson in my arms. And that ending, my eyes exploded with tears of the best kind of sweet joy. This love story from Brittainy C. Cherry was extraordinary and will stay with me always and always.
