Pre-Release Blitz, ARC Review + Giveaway!- Sketch by Laramie Briscoe

Sketch banner

A Tattoo Artist - A Husband - An Alpha Male Who Makes No Excuses

Title:  Sketch
Author: Laramie Briscoe
Publication Date: January 21st 2016
Plot:  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.

I didn't know what to expect when I initially started reading this book, but I have to tell you, it seriously tacks onto many, if not all, couples issues. It just seems as if everything all stems from communication. Ever heard of that saying by Tony Gaskins?-- “Communication to a relationship is like oxygen to life. Without dies.”

Yeah well, I definitely felt this quote through the underlying factors and layers of what put a cork in this couples relationship and what drove it to unravel until the point of divorce.

I’m not saying that by no means, there’s such thing as a perfect relationship or a bulletproof way to salvage one that is tattering by the seams. All I’m saying, is that in some cases, sometimes love needs some time. Work. Space apart. This is one prime example of two people who needed a serious reality check to find what was broken.
There was a mixture of red flags and problems, each of which I was really curious as to how Sketch and Nina were going to mend and move past.

Going into it, I’m not going to lie. At first, I severely loathed Nina, but luckily author Laramie Briscoe offers a dual POV, so I got to get into her head and sort of why she did what she did and therefore understood her and the motives behind her actions.
As for Sketch, you can already feel his anguish, his anger, his helplessness, devastation, and trying to figure out the million dollar question, “why?”.

I would say more, but, it’s really one of those you should just read for yourselves.
