Review ~ Sass by Laramie Briscoe


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 fiancĂ©'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.


Holy cow, throw in a few different plot twists, and character professions, and I’d think this book was written by taking a chapter out of my past!!

Cassandra “Sass” Straight is just what her name says. A sassy, take no prisoners, hold nothing back kind of girl. She knows what she wants when she sees it, and she’s wanted her brother’s best friend for a whole lotta years! So when the opportunity arises to assist in some innocent revenge against his lying, cheating, selfish ex-fiance what’s a girl to do? Grab that opportunity and ride it like a champion bull, that’s what ya do!!!! I loved Sass. I loved her attitude. I loved that she protected the people in her life who meant the most while not letting herself be walked upon. I loved that she overcame a terrible loss when she was young and didn’t let it wreck her.  And I loved her fierce desire to go after what she wanted even when it may have not seemed the wisest choice to everyone else.

Reed Shamrock. What an all encompassing sexy man. Shall we go down the list?

Successful business owner.
Good looking.
Great body.
Great personality.
Demanding alpha sex god in bed.

WHEW! He’s hot! But he comes with some baggage. Namely the above mentioned ex-fiance that deserves a shovel to the head (my opinion only).

As much as I liked Sass and Reed separately I loved them together. They worked. They were the ying to each other’s yang (that always sounds so dirty when I hear it). Feeding off of each other to create a comfortable place for them both to grow which is what a successful relationship should be.

I’ve enjoyed the writings of Laramie Briscoe for a long time and she continues to be one of my favorite go to authors with this book. I give it 5 stars

Doomsday Love Teaser 2.jpg

AP - Synopsis.jpg

When we were ten, he treated me like a friend.
When we were eighteen, he wanted nothing to do with me.
And now that we are twenty-four, he longs to claim every single inch of me.

He was wild—untamed.
And I, a reckless girl, who loved too hard.
But, what we had was special.
I was his serenity and he my protector.

Drake was consumed by my love…
but he also took advantage of it…
He’d broken my heart—left me hanging for years.
He ruined us.

And, now, he’s back.
He wants me.
And I want to hate him, I really do.

But, who am I kidding?
No one can deny Drake Davenport.
You can’t hide from the almighty DOOMSDAY.

Because he is a fighter.
And, just like me, he loves hard.
He never loses and he will fight as hard is he can if it means winning me back.

From New York Times Bestseller Pepper Winters comes a timeless love story answering the question of what happens when everything is stripped away.
"There is a message for everything. From handwritten to verbal, seen and unseen. Messages exist all around us." But what if you don't see? What if you don't understand? What if, by ignoring the message, your life is never the same again? Estelle Evermore morphed from nobody to somebody overnight. Galloway Oak put his past behind him and endeavored to make his fortune using his trade. Two strangers. One plane. Multiple unseen messages. From sky to island, they find neither fame nor skills can save them. Stripped from society and left alone to survive the elements, the very task of staying alive outweighs all other needs. Until survival turns to desire. And desire turns to danger.

Unseen Messages Full wrap
Unseen Messages is a fascinating story of survival, what-ifs, finding out who you are, and what you are made of. Should you ignore all the warnings when they are screaming at you? What are the consequences of listening to or ignoring that voice yelling danger? How will you handle the consequences of your choices?

Galloway and Estelle are thrown together on a flight; they are in route to make some life changes and are hopeful for some new beginnings. They definitely get a new life for themselves but not in the way they expected and it changes them forever. I hesitate to say too much because you should go in as blind as you can but their story spans eight years and it is a turbulent ride. The book is filled with danger, passion, loss, hope, and love. You should dive into it and enjoy the ride, flipping the pages in anticipation of what will happen next made it all the more exciting to read.

The beginning of their story sucked me in and I was pretty much riveted all the way to the end. This book is really long but I still read it in about two days. It was a bit slow in some parts with the day to day events. Part of me wanted it to speed up but if I am being honest I was also truly fascinated with what was happening and how they were surviving. I realized I was tensing up a lot too. I was scared for the characters and so hopeful for them. I went through a lot of emotions reading this book; frustration, hope, heartbreak, and happiness. I felt every high and low the characters had, and every happy and sad moment they had.

The first half of the book Galloway was a struggle for me. He is a man with a past that has made him completely insecure and fills him with self-loathing. This insecurity bled into everything that was happening between him and Estelle as well as the circumstances they were in. At times he was too much, but all the characters in the story grow and change and so does Galloway. In the end I saw him as incredibly strong, resilient, and brave. Estelle was like superwoman, she was strong, nurturing, fearless, and loyal. In reality this is who she was deep down but she also had to be the savior and remain the glue that kept them all together.

I really loved how Ms. Winters wrapped up the story. Even though I wanted a different outcome for one character (and I was heartbroken) I still loved how this story ended. This was a great story of learning to survive with not only the things surrounding you but the people you make your family.

Coming APRIL 30th!

He changed my life.
With a smile, a flick of his wrist and a death-defying stunt.
He was six and I was five.
And now, thirteen years later, I am hopelessly in love.
There is only a slight problem.
He doesn’t know I exist.
He’s the star quarterback.
I’m a science nerd who hides in the shadows.
I don’t need anyone to tell me that college won't change anything.
I know he’s the star of this story.
And I belong in the audience.

Parker Elliot is going to Penmore State University miles away from home. She's leaving her small town because Penmore has a fantastic science department, because she needs to begin exploring the life she wants to lead and because Grayson Waters is the starting quarterback for the Penmore Herons.

Grayson Waters at first glance lives life to the fullest, but he is dealing with more than meets the eye. A con artist father in trouble with local mobsters, an illegitimate brother living close by, the pressure of leading his team to the championship game and a desire to pursue a career outside the football field. Decisions need to be made. For Gray, slipping into the shadows with a pretty and observant brunette might be just what he needs to finally make the right ones.

I first started reading romance when I was twelve. 

My mother handed me her copy of Nora Robert’s Midnight Bayou and with resignation said, “Here you’ll love it, just skip the sex scenes or at least tell me you did.”

She knew I was young and she hoped I didn’t understand the diverse innuendos, but she also saw early on that I was a hopeless romantic and had a joy and thirst for romance novels that not even she and her protective motherly instincts could stop.

Release Day Blitz ~ Logan Kade by Tijan

logan kade release blitz.jpg

logan kade it's live.jpg

Logan Kade is FINALLY here!  #sexmachine #fallencrest #logankade

logan kade.jpg


You think you know me?
Manwhore. Partier. Fighter.
You know what? You’re right. I’m all those things. F*ck with what’s mine and I’ll f*ck you ten times harder. Suspensions. Arrests. You think I care?

So yeah, I may fit the bad boy image, but there’s so much more you don’t know.

I'm loyal to a damned fault. I'll never leave your side. The real Logan Kade isn’t a manwhore. When I love, I love hard and completely.

Taylor saw that side of me. Inside of me. She saw my darkness and pain, and the second she did, she owned me.

You may think you know me…
…but she’s the only one who sees me.

“Get Logan,” someone yelled.
Another girl asked, “Where is Logan?”
I heard other people saying the same thing, but I focused on the girl.
She raised her chin, and a warning flashed in her eyes. “Touch me. I dare you.”
There were three of them, all tall and, not to be stereotypical, but they looked like preppy douchebags. Each was good looking, with bodies built like they rowed every morning for hours. They looked like money. It practically dripped from their clothes. Their jawlines were rigid enough to form glaciers.
Their eyes were icy, too, as they stared back at the girl. They weren’t backing down.
I broke from the crowd, planning to go stand next to her. But before I could move, the crowd broke in half. An actual opening formed, and Logan Kade strode forward.
My foot jerked back into its spot, stepping back as he brushed past me.
Kade stopped beside her, and the three guys turned their attention to him. They didn’t move or say anything, but the air shifted. It’d been dark and ominous before, and I still felt a battle brewing.
“Kade starts fights, and he finishes them.”
A low tingle went through me, warming me. I remembered what Jason said and the nerves/anger/excitement took on a whole other feeling. My mouth was almost watering. I wanted to see what would happen. I wanted to see this Logan Kade in action, and for some reason, I was thirsting to see this fight.
“Kade,” one of them grated out his name.
Kade glanced at the girl, and then settled back on the spokesman. “What are you doing here?”
“It’s a party. We were invited.”
“And that’s why you’re facing off with Sam?” He moved forward a step.
“We weren’t facing off...”
Samantha folded her arms over her chest. “Yeah, right. You were just walking past me? That’s why you wouldn’t let me get past you to the car. We just ‘happened’ to block each other and you didn’t hear me when I told you to move.”
A little laugh slipped from me.
Kade threw me a sideways look.
I should’ve clamped a hand over my mouth. I should’ve let them know I wasn’t involved, because really, I wasn’t. I didn’t know this girl. It wasn’t my place to say anything or join in, but I didn’t. A dark part of me had opened up, seeing that this girl might need help. I wanted something to happen. I was almost egging it on in my head and as Kade watched me, his eyes lingering, the dark part grew into something else. My body grew warm and my pulse started to pick up. It was like he knew what was going on in me, and I swallowed over a lump, because that wasn’t right. He couldn’t know. He didn’t even know me...
But I felt like he did. I felt like he knew exactly what was going on in me, and a flash of anger flared up in me. I turned away. He could see inside of me, and that was too much. I didn’t want that so I slipped back into the crowd. As I pulled further away, enough so I wasn’t on the front line, my insides were still charged up.



He stared back at me for a moment, a mask over his face, before he started laughing. “You are feisty.”
“Is that a problem?”
“Do you not know me? Feisty women are my specialty.”
“You’re arrogant.”
He was full-on laughing now. “Have you not met me?"


I studied the amusement in those chocolate eyes of his. “Are you always like this?”
His smirk deepened. “Gorgeous?”


I didn’t want to move. No, actually I did, but my body didn’t. I almost cursed myself, but I felt Logan’s gaze on me. It was like he could see inside of me, right past the walls I erected.


I was fighting against a rubber band, stretched tight from me to him. The more I tried to break free, the stronger it became.


I held up my hands. “I’m not going to hurt her. I promise.”
I smirked. “But I might bang her.”


“Use my last name.” I moved him back a little so I had some breathing room. I tried not to notice how good he felt, or how strong his arm was under my touch. “It’s more appropriate.”
There it was again. Genuine confusion. He wasn’t angry. He wasn’t getting defensive. He was just confused.
“What’s going on here?” He edged back one more step. “You okay?”
“No.” I waved my hand at him. “It’s you.”
"Because you're bad."
He smirked. "I know I am."


I’d never had sex in a bar, but Logan made me wonder why not.


If I love you, then I’ll do almost anything to protect you.


A guy like Logan Kade is very dangerous to a girl like you

tijan bio.jpeg

I didn't begin writing until after undergraduate college. There'd been storylines and characters in my head all my life, but it came to a boiling point one day and I HAD to get them out of me. So the computer was booted up and I FINALLY felt it click. Writing is what I needed to do. After that, I had to teach myself how to write. I can't blame my teachers for not teaching me all those years in school. It was my fault. I was one of the students that was wishing I was anywhere but at school! So after that day, it took me lots of work until I was able to put together something that resembled a novel. I'm hoping I got it right since someone must be reading this profile! And I hope you keep enjoying my future stories.
