Product description

Product Description

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.

3.0 out of 5 stars Should be Better **Spoilers** 22 January 2016
By thirty-five - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I don't know if I like what the author was implying.

The writing was good, and Sketch was developed well for this to be such a short story but I don't think Nina was. The story was clearly biased toward Sketch being in the right and Nina being wrong. They both had things they should've worked on, but the author implied that Nina was spoiled and spent all his money. But she worked, so I would assume some of the money she spent was hers? Also, while the home was nice it was only a 2 bedroom - if they planned to have kids, why wouldn't she voice her concerns with the space? If she likes the color yellow - why wouldn't she want to paint her favorite room that?

I think Sketch assumed more than he really knew about what she wanted. He stated she always wanted to spend money but that's only because her father said he expected her husband to provide that. Yet Nina was clear that she wanted him. Why would anyone be surprised and not accept some responsibility for never being present in a relationship? She was portrayed as a one dimensional bad wife. She had to come to him to make it work because he was hurt. It was almost as if him never being around should have been acceptable because he is trying to "provide".

I also don't buy that she wasn't really involved in his life. He mentioned she supported him in the beginning, then she had no clue about some of the most basic things in his life. I do think they loved each other. I do think a lot of the reactions were spot on. I do believe that they grew apart. I just didn't like the implication that someone should be willing to accept when a partner isn't present because they are making money.

On another note, this was way too short for it's cost. It had so much potential but was lacking in certain areas.

4.0 out of 5 stars Heart wrenchingly good! 16 May 2016
By LetyM - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Great!! I almost didn't read this book because some of the reviews claimed the blame was mostly one sided towards Nina but that is not the case at all. This is the first time I read this author and I have to admit I'm impressed.

This is a coming of age (in their marriage) story for both Sketch and Nina. The realizations that come to them both and the way that they grow as a couple is refreshingly honest. Although heart wrenching it is so true of so many couples. Marriage is not an easy undertake. It's an evolution of two souls that will either grow closer together or completely apart throughout their lives. There will be some that will just exist in the marriage sans happiness.

Good job Ms Laramie. I look forward to reading Reaper's story.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not worth the price 26 January 2016
By ms Harry - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Argh where do I start. The blurb for this book was good and I was looking forward to reading this. The last few books in the author's heaven hills series have been disappointing and I was hoping that this book, with its different theme, would be a really good read. It failed to deliver.
The book glossed over the couples story, it was one sided and boring.
If the author wants to charge $3.99 they need to learn how to develop their story better. There are a lot of books out there at this price or less that have a better developed story.
$3.99 for 140 pages is expensive especially when you compare it to a Lauren Gilley book. All her books are extremely well written with great developed story lines. Her last book was $3.99 for 532 pages that kept you engaged.
3.0 out of 5 stars Nina wanted to feel loved and not from material things but from her husband 22 April 2017
By Amazon Customer - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
The story in a nutshell: One day Devin comes home to his wife Nina leaving. She said she had enough of being second in his life. Devin was so busy trying to get his business to be successful he didn't realize his wife was unhappy. Nina wanted to feel loved and not from material things but from her husband. Their story was emotional and you could really feel what Devin was going through. You could sympathize with him and feel his anger. When Nina left it was unexpected. It all worked out for the best. The couple learned to love one another more and to talk out their differences. In the end they learned to appreciate each other as well. Now I do believe that Nina could have talked it over with Devin and worked it out at home. In my opinion she had just as many flaws as Devin, which he points out in the story too. The story was good, I would say something for a rainy day or what I call a filler. (A book you read to fill in the days or time right before you get that book you've really been waiting to read).

3.0 out of 5 stars Ok story for me 23 January 2016
By Bobbie Fenton - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Even though I enjoyed this story, I wish it had been longer. Especially for the price. Also, I think the author could have given the readers a bit more background. There was not a lot of depth to their story. The ending seemed rushed. The epilogue was good, but you can tell a lot was left out of the story, we were given the barest of details about their two years back together. Could have been a great story instead of just good. Laramie Briscoe is one of my favorite writers. Usually she is an automatic read for me. I may have to rethink this due to book length and price for less than 140 actual story pages because in this book there are about 15 pages that are author info, prologue and acknowledgements.
