SKETCH by Laramie Briscoe Blog Tour/Review


My name is Devin, but everybody calls me Sketch. I opened my own tattoo shop two years ago, and I’ve finally gotten to the point where I’m going to be able to give my wife everything she’s ever wanted. I’m going to be able to take time off and spend a day a week with her. In fact, tonight, I stopped and grabbed some wine, got her flowers, and those chocolates she likes. 


What I wasn’t prepared for was to be met at the front door by her carrying her sh*t out.
She loves me, but she’s not in love with me anymore. What kind of bulls*it excuse is that? I’ve left her alone too often, I’ve been completely focused on one goal, and apparently she’s sick of waiting.
So here I stand. Half the man I was, p*ssed as f*ck, because while I was busy making a better life for us, she was under the impression I was leaving her lonely. I know one day she’ll see what I’ve been doing has been for us, and when that day comes… She can damn well come crawling back to me.



This was a good book to start off my 2016 reading year.
I think everyone who is married for any length of time can relate to Sketch’s (Devin) and Nina’s problem. Being married is hard and it requires a lot of work. You can never take anything for granted. Your partners feeling are constantly changing as time goes on.
Needs and feelings when you were first married change as time goes by.

When I first started to read this book I was kind of put off by Nina. I thought all her reasons for leaving Sketch were crazy! I mean she had a man. And he gave her the world.
But really… Problems are never that easy and cut and dry.

Once I started to read everything I started to see her point and I was also seeing Sketches. He was trying to make a name for himself in the tattoo world and he was also trying to provide for his wife. And he was trying to prove to Nina’s father that he could take care of his daughter with his chosen profession.
Sketch had a lot on his shoulders. Unfortunately he could not find the balance for it all. And certain things fell to the waist side. Nina kept a lot in and the way she handled things was to argue with Sketch.

I don’t want to give it all away. But I loved how this book unfolded. I love how they took their time with each other. Getting to know each other all over again.
It was a process but it was well worth it for both of them.
They didn’t rush into anything.

This book was certainly sexy. I loved how they showed a different side to each other and were willing to try new things with each other. They made a conscious effort not to go back to the way things were before the split.
They wanted to do and try new things.
A fresh start….

This was a good book and I’m so glad I got to read it! I will definitely be reading more books by this author.
