Release Blitz: Sass by Laramie Briscoe

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

BLURB 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©e’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!

Review by Lisa Kane

Reed Shamrock is dog tired and just glad to be getting home to his fiancee Lacey. When he pulls up to the house he's not too surprised to see his best friend Taylor's truck. He and Justin have been as close as can be and the two stop by and borrow his equipment all the time. But something feels different about this. He walks into the house and hears noises coming from his rarely used guest bedroom. When he opens the door, he's just about knocked on his ass by the sight of Lacey going down on Taylor. He throws them out of his house in utter disgust. 

Our trio just turned into a duo. I'll never be able to forgive Taylor or Lacey for what I'm seeing right now.

He is so upset he drives over to Justin's place but he's not home. His younger sister, Cassandra "Sass" Straight is there and sees how upset he is. She gets the story out of him and she can't believe it. 

How can two people who professed to love me so much, do this to me? 

She has always had a thing for him despite their six year age difference. But she would never have wanted this to happen. She's been more than aware that he is crazy about Lacey. 

As much as I've always wanted to be the one to elicit this reaction, it's always been her. She's always been his kryptonite-ever since they got together, he's always done what she asked of him. 

Fast forward a year and Reed has buried himself in his construction business. He hasn't dated but Taylor and Lacey are still together. He's out with Sass and Justin one night and he sees that Lacey is less than thrilled to see him with Sass. He hams it up a bit with her and sees the fire in Lacey's eyes. He and Sass come up with the idea to act as a couple and twist the knife a little deeper. But when does the act stop and the real feelings begin? 

"Do you want me to act like we're together?" Sass asks, her mouth tilting up in a grin as she takes a pull off her bottle of beer. "Ya know, make 'em jealous? Lacey won't be able to shut her mouth if she thinks you've moved on to your best friend's little sister."

The more time they spend together, the more the attraction between them is obvious. Once that friend zone comes tumbling down things change and they change quickly. But is this all for show or is Sass going to get her heart broken? 

I'm not stupid: Sass has had a crush on me for years, but she's never acted on it, and neither have I. 

Both the main characters are likeable and believable. Reed is a little dense about Sass' true feelings for him, but he is not stupid when it comes to how he feels. Lacey and Taylor are both evil to the bone and I have to admit I wanted them to suffer a lot more. They aren't content to just have shattered Reed, but they are so spiteful and jealous. Sass is full of insecurities, and her brother Justin doesn't help. 

"Do you really think Reed is gonna give anyone else a ring after what happened with Lacey? Do you think you're special, Sass? Do you think you're the one?"

Jeez Justin, tell us how you really feel!

But he has her best interest at heart and he's a good guy. But maybe he doesn't know Reed as well as he thinks he does, maybe Reed is just starting to learn that what he's been looking for, is right under his nose. 

The secondary characters were really interesting. I wouldn't mind reading Justin and his girlfriend Morgan's story. 

"Get used to us, Sass, because we're going to be together for the long haul."
