Sass by Laramie Briscoe

So, I’m finally getting back into the joy of reading again and I’m excited that today I have a new book review for y’all!!!

Synopsis from Amazon 

I, Cassandra Straight, have loved Reed Shamrock to distraction since I was a teenager. I even watched him fall in love with someone else and almost get married.

A year ago, when he walked into his house and found his fiance’s face in his best friend’s crotch, his life changed forever and it hasn’t been the same since.

On his first night out since the horrible incident, we run into the ex-skank. Seeing the devastation in his eyes, I made a promise that I would help him get over her. I told him that a pretend relationship between us would work. It would help him move on.

I didn’t count on my heart or his getting in the way. And I sure as hell didn’t count on not being able to tell when pretend turned to reality. When it all implodes, the only thing left is the truth.

Sometimes though, the truth? It hides and we have to dig deep to find it. To make it come to the surface, we have to give it a little talking to. We have to give it a little Sass.

MY REVIEW

You get a lot of the story from the synopsis above. This books is about Cassandra “Sass” and her brother’s best friend, Reed Shamrock. Each chapter goes back and forth between Reed’s perspective and Sass’s perspective. Basically, Reed has had his heart shattered when he comes home early from work and finds his fiancee, Lacey, in a rather compromising position with his other best friend, Taylor. Moral of the story: You never know what you are going to find at home when you come home unexpectedly.

The book then fast forwards to one  year later and Reed, Sass, and her brother, Justin, are at the bar and they run into “good riddance” aka Lacey and Taylor, who are know a couple. Sass comes up with a plan to pretend that she and Reed are now a couple to make Lacey jealous. Reed, slowly getting over the humiliation of his heartbreak, goes along with it.

images-4

Sass’s brother, Justin, knows this isn’t going to end well for his sister and isn’t very supportive of this game that Sass and Reed are playing, but let the games begin between Reed and Sass. Reed and Sass start “dating” but things start to change when Reed realizes that Sass isn’t his best friend’s little sister anymore and the sparks starts to fly between Sass and Reed, but is it real?

images-6

When you start a relationship on a lie, you question everything. Is Reed really falling for Sass?  Does Sass figure out Reed really isn’t the man of her dreams? Will good riddance ruin any chance for Sass and Reed? You will have to read the book.

I give this book three out of four “parking lots”. (See rating system here). I will say that I did read the book in one night.

Sass can be purchased at Amazon here.

Rebecca Stewart had never let things get personal with her students; a mistake that could cost her far more than a broken heart.

 

Jason and his friends enjoyed tormenting teachers. When they set their sights on Miss Stewart, nothing would prevent them from bringing her down.

 

Avoiding Jason’s advances and navigating an epic clash of wills, the young woman felt relieved to see graduation day finally arrive. Little did she know, it wouldn’t end there. Pregnant and alone, she could only keep her secrets for so long.

 

After one of the boys is found murdered, the police haul her in, but she denies having done anything wrong. Can she convince them of the truth before all three of the young men fall victim to a killer, forcing her to raise her child alone?

WTMO Author Bio Banner Final.jpg
samantha.jpg
Anyone who knows me could tell you, I am a friendly kind of person, never met a stranger and take up conversations any where at any time. I work hard, and my mind never seems to shut down, as I wake up often in the middle of the night with ideas pouring out and demanding to be dealt with. Of course that means much of my books were written in the middle of the night.

 

I grew up and still live in the great state of Texas where everything is bigger, where we have warm weather and a central location. I love my state, my town, and my family, which includes my four sons, my significant other, and many friends as well.

 

I have thoroughly enjoyed writing the books that are currently available and hope you will enjoy reading them just as much. And of course, there will be many more stories to come.

book blurb

I watch.
I study.
I prowl.
I hunt.

I always go in with a plan. A set of rules for myself. I don’t take unnecessary risks. That’s how I’ve been able to evade capture all these years.

But there’s something about this girl that is different than the others. When I finally meet her, the rules become a blur. And I break the most important one of all—I take her with me.

——-

It’s just my imagination—that feeling of being watched. That those icy eyes— a vivid turquoise with a distinct golden fleck—aren’t watching me.

It’s just stress. I am the person everyone relies on. Maybe that’s why I haven’t been feeling so content with my life lately. Why I dream those eyes belong to someone who can tear me away from all of my responsibilities.

But these are just shameful fantasies, never meant to breach reality.

Then one night, the dream comes true, only it’s a horrific nightmare.

Now, I only have one task: survival.

excerpt

Patience. It’s the most important tool in my arsenal. I plan every hunt from start to finish. I watch their lives through windows. I learn their routines. I enter their homes and go through their keepsakes and take a small token here or there. Something they won’t notice or assume they have misplaced. I may move a picture. Eat something. Just enough so that somewhere in their subconscious they feel my presence long before I am standing in front of them. That used to be enough. Just being there, surrounded by their things, the vestiges of their daily lives. It used to be enough to look at the tokens I kept and remember the rush I felt being inside the walls I had watched from afar. But that rush faded a long time ago, vanishing in a spectacular eruption the day the one person who understood me died. Without her, the loneliness became unbearable and the rage swelled. It filled me until I could feel it creeping out of my skin, until I was so full of rage and pain that I had to put it on someone else to make it disappear. Watching wasn’t enough. I had to hear their voices. See their faces. Steal their lives. So instead of just taking, I began to leave things behind: tape, rope, gloves, lube.
