~*★Release Blitz with Review★*~ Sass by Laramie Briscoe

We have to give it a little sass…..
Release Date: March 24, 2016


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 fiancée’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.

Included in the back of Sass is an exclusive sneak peak of “Renegade” – the first book in a new series for 2017!

Series or Standalone: Standalone
Rating: ★★★★
Reviewer: Melyssa
Friend’s to lover’s books are ones I enjoy. Add to that when it’s a book where a crush turns into something more for a younger girl and her brother’s best friend and well, I’m sold.

So it’s a no brainer that when I get a shot at reading this one, I take it.

Enter Sass and Reed.

Now, I’ve never read anything by this author before, so in a way, this was another one of those books that I went in blind for, one that could go either way, but now, after finishing it, I can definitely say I will definitely be checking more from this author in the future.

The writing style was engaging, the characters, even though I hated some of the things they had to go through (Reed in the beginning and Sass later in the book), seemed very flushed out and real to me and their road to happiness was equal parts humorous and dramatic. All of these things combining to make this one heck of a read.

Now it’s confession time.

I connected with Sass almost right off the jump because much like her, my older brother used to have best friends, ride or dies, and once or twice in my years growing up, I had a crush on one or two of them. I could relate. Sure, my experiences didn't turn out quite like hers, but they made it a lot easier to understand moving forward. She also wasn’t weak willed or boring. She was fun, had a backbone and knew herself and her heart.

Which brings me to Reed.

Good lord. What can I say about this man? I felt for him right from the moment he unknowingly walked into his house ready to surprise the woman he planned on marrying. When he caught sight of what was playing out without his knowledge and the anger, sadness, upset and everything else that came right along with it. God my heart went out to him and when he landed on Sass’s doorstep that night, and he broke and she reacted, I was so ready.

For his healing, for their love. All of it.

The author and the characters didn’t disappoint.

Watching these two come into their own, come into the very real feelings that were developing out of something that at first seems like nothing more than a game, it was fun. Reed seeing Sass as her own person apart from his relationship with her brother, and as the young girl he remembers has and Sass really seeing Reed. The man he became and moving on from a crush into something infinitely stronger. It was all very well done.

What really worked for me here and I gotta say took me off guard honestly, was just how the ex-drama I expected there to be played out. How even when things looked a certain way, it was never what it appeared. Reed really having moved on from who he was in the past and not letting her get to him again, despite their history and even though there were moments where I thought it would, Sass not letting her get in between them fully either. Sure, it was there, but it was a whole lot tamer than I was expecting and only made me enjoy the story that much more.

If you’re a fan of happy endings, romances or more specifically friends to lover’s romances with the right amount of humor placed throughout, this one should work for you the same way it did for me and it’s a book I would definitely recommend you give a chance to.

My thanks to the author and all others involved in letting me read this before its official release. I enjoyed it immensely.
