Behind the Bars Wrap

When I first met Jasmine Greene, she came in as raindrops.

I was the awkward musician, and she was the high school queen.

The only things we had in common were our music and our loneliness.

Something in her eyes told me her smile wasn’t always the truth.

Something in her voice gave me a hope I always wished to find.

And in a flash, she was gone.

Years later, she was standing in front of me on a street in New Orleans.

She was different, but so was I. Life made us colder. Harder. Isolated.


Even though we were different, the broken pieces of me recognized the sadness in her.

Now she was back, and I wouldn’t make the mistake of letting her go again.

When I first met Jasmine Greene, she came in as raindrops.

When we met again, she was the darkest storm.





By the way, what happened to Todd’s nose?” I asked.

“I broke it,” Elliott said matter-of-factly.

“What? How? Why?”

He shrugged before turning to look out the window. “He called you a bad name.”

“What was it?”

“It doesn’t matter.”

“Eli,” I started.

He turned my way and locked his hazel eyes with my browns. “Jazz…” He shook his head. “It wasn’t true.”

I swallowed hard, a big part of me certain Todd’s words held some form of truth.

Elliott saw it in me—my fear. He kept shaking his head and whispered, “I don’t feel sorry for you. Sometimes you look at me like you think I feel sorry for you, and I want you to know I don’t. I think you’re perfect the way you are.”

I quietly laughed at him repeating the words I’d told him earlier. A few tears rolled down my cheeks. “I’m a little messed up.”

“I know.” He nodded. “That’s why I like you.”

He went back to staring out the window, and I kept staring at him.

And there it was.

So small, so tiny, so real.


It wasn’t love, but it was the beginning of it.

I knew I was young, and I knew it was stupid, but in that moment, I began to fall in love with the quiet boy who quietly cared for me. The boy who was scared and still strong. The boy who stood up for me when he was surrounded by reasons not to do such a thing. I hadn’t known much about love. I hadn’t known how it looked, felt, or tasted. I hadn’t known how it moved, how it flowed, but I knew my heart was tight and currently skipping a few beats. I understood the goose bumps covering my arms. I knew this stuttering boy who was sometimes so scared was someone worth loving. He was worth being the first one I gave my heart to.

I knew Elliott Adams was love.

And I was falling into him so fast.

~ 5++ Light In Our Darkness Stars ~

I truly can’t give this book enough stars for how AMAZING this story truly is!!!

Behind the Bars is only my second book by Brittainy C Cherry that I have read and I have to say it was beyond AMAZING!!! Her books just suck me in and all the feelings that her stories invoke are incomparable to any other book I have read.

This is the first standalone novel to her newest series and I think this series is off to a great start. I can’t wait to see where she goes from here.

I don’t want to talk too much about the storyline, because this is a story that you need to FEEL for yourself. I will warn you though, this book does cover some really tough subjects and although it isn’t overly graphic, some parts were tough for me to read. I know I had to take several breaks to get my heart back to normal. This story was a roller coaster of emotions for me. It hit close to home in some aspects, I truly felt a personal connection to this story.

This is a standalone novel and is told from Dual POV. I felt it was a friends to lovers style book because she created an amazing friendship between Jasmine and Elliott. But it is also an opposites attract type story. You’ll understand that once you read the book. Even though Jasmine and Elliott were opposites they were also so much alike. I loved getting to know them as young 16 year old high school students but also following them into adulthood 6 years later and they are young adults. I thought this was the perfect way to write this story and to build the perfect connection not only to these two characters but also all the secondary characters.

I can honestly say this is one of my ALL TIME favorite books of 2017 and I believe this book is a MUST READ for everyone. The characters were captivating and the storyline was intriguing, emotional, heartbreaking and heartwarming all in one.

You don’t want to miss this AMAZING book!!!!
