Blog Tour, Review & Excerpt ~ Disgrace by Brittainy Cherry


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


Book Description:

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.

Our Review:

Reviewed by Donna ~ 5 stars
***ARC received for an honest review***

“…I never liked a book that started in the middle…So let’s start from the beginning.”

Brittainy Cherry is one of those authors that never fails to make me feel and feel A LOT!! Her writing is always incredibly emotional and heartfelt and you cannot help but connect with her characters with your heart, mind and soul and Disgrace was no different. Once again Brittainy Cherry delivers relatable characters that will totally consume you as will her words. Another unputdownable read left me in floods of tears at times and then uplifted the next as Brittainy Cherry’s writing totally enveloped me in this incredibly well thought out story. Lyrical prose that will leave you breathless as this story of growth, love, romance and finding and believing in yourself captivates you from start to finish.

“When my Prince Charming is the rest of the world’s Beast.”

Jackson and Grace were two characters you would not ordinarily put together. Total opposites and yet together they just worked. Their chemistry was electric, their connection was soul deep as both looked past the town labels and took time to get to know the real person underneath. These two were the prime example of that age-old adage of opposites attract.

“Love her fully, or let her go.”

Jackson was the town bad boy, incredibly misunderstood but he did little to assuage the rumours. Jackson kept himself to himself as the town mechanic and only communicated with others when he had to. Jackson only had his father, a father that took his wife’s departure extremely hard and now lived in the bottom of a bottle. From a young age Jackson had stepped up to the be the parent and you couldn’t help but empathise and sympathise with the situation he found himself him and yet despite the crap hand that life had dealt him, underneath that prickly, stay the fuck away from me persona was a man with a heart of gold.

“Once you start hanging out with the black sheep of the town, your wool starts shifting to a darker side.”

Grace finds herself back in her hometown after her marriage breaks down. Having been stabbed in the back by the people that should have loved her the most she is at an all-time low and when her car also gives up the ghost, Grace finds herself close to doing that herself. This is how Jackson and Grace first meet and despite Jackson’s usual ‘do not get involved’ mantra, for some reason, he cannot help himself when it comes to Grace.

“And Gracelyn Mae?”
“You might want to toss a prayer up to that God of yours and ask for his forgiveness.”
“Why’s that?”
“Because you’re about to sin tonight.”

As I said above, Brittainy Cherry delivers an extremely heartfelt and emotional story as two incredibly broken characters find solace, friendship and love with each other. As with any Brittainy Cherry book you always get a lot more than a romance and the issues that these find themselves battling were done some with honesty, relatability and a whole lotta heart. These were two characters that you can’t help but take into your heart and with every beat you are constantly wanting them to find their happy ever after. I found myself rooting for these two, frantically turning the pages because I couldn’t read quick enough to satiate the need to know more. I take my hat off to this author because she just delivers EVERY. SINGLE. TIME.

“We’ll learn to walk alone, and then we’ll walk together.”



“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.”
