In the blink of an eye Nash Gilbert lost everything he held dear, and for the last five years his loss has been haunting him and keeping him from finding the courage to move on. His family can see that he needs to move on, rejoin the living, and find happiness again... so they devise a little plan to help him find his happy again. Nash has his doubts about their plan, but he has to admit they are just looking out for his best interests, so he decides to go along with the plan, which takes him to Room #143... where he finds far more than he ever bargained for! This is a beautifully penned story about second chances, finding love after loss, and learning to let go. I absolutely adored these characters, neither of them were looking for love, but it found them and set them on a journey neither saw coming. Watching these two maneuver down this new path was good for the heart, with each encounter you could see the desire growing between them, as well as their care and love for one another. They had me swimming in feels and swoons!! Definitely a very satisfying first read for me, I highly recommend you get your hands on this one you will NOT be disappointed with what you find between the pages here! I requested an advanced copy of this title from the publisher, and I am voluntarily leaving my honest opinion.

Room 143 by Laramie Briscoe is a standalone contemporary romance about a widower who is pushed to move on by his family and a woman new to the small town that steps in to help her best friend only to find herself in a situation she never expected. The chemistry between Caroline and Nash is palpable. The situation in which they first met is crazy! The premise was so much different than what I was expecting from the blurb - but I've loved every Laramie Briscoe book I have read so far so I gave this a chance. I'm so glad I did. It's a small-town romance with a kinky twist in the meet-cute but I loved it all. Enjoy!

Room 143 is not what the blurb leads you to believe this story could be about so please don't let this deter you from picking up this book. This is a standalone by this author, but am hoping we get a story on the secondary characters. Love the last name thing they do for scoring-too funny! Leaving it at that to avoid spoilers and to allow you to chuckle with us. Nash has a big decision to make. Do you or don't you enter is the question? There is no right or wrong when it comes to healing. Would I be mad at my siblings? Heck Yeah! But it was in good faith that they did this. Caroline you will adore and for whatever reason the stars aligned when you least expect it. Change is good, not always easy, but without setbacks there would be no change or lessons to learn from. Your heart will hurt, melt and heal all in one book. This was a beautiful story and that ending just should how right it was between these two when it comes to keeping memories alive. I highly recommend it. Love what the Room 134 also stands for!

Simply adored this heartfelt romance. It was exactly sure what to expect when I started reading Room 143 as the reviews I saw told me this differed from Ms. Briscoe’s other book. But I love her writing style so I decided to give it a go. Believe me when I say, I am very glad I did. The storyline deals with powerful issues that will break your heart but the author has written it in such a fun, flirty, romantic way that it will end up melting into your soul. Nash is a widower who lost his wife and unborn son in a car accident. She was his childhood sweetheart and only love. 5 years later he is still him a curve and a possible 2nd chance at life. Watching Nash deal with the pain, the guilt and the hope of moving forward was simply breathtaking. Especially with happy, upbeat Caroline who is also starting a new life in a new town with a new career. Their journey from page one of Room 143 to the very end is one I HIGHLY RECOMMEND traveling down. You won’t regret it. 2 Thumbs Up and 5 stars for this amazing read. And if I may add, I hope Ms. Briscoe writes more books in this vain as she truly did a remarkable job with Room 143.

This book brings me back to all the things I loved best about “Trick”, we just have a new leading couple this time. Nash and Caroline’s story sucked me in, and I was so frustrated that my every day activities kept getting in the way of my reading. I did not want to put it down. It made me laugh. It nearly brought me to tears several times. This was a beautiful story of hope for everyone who's looking at starting over. Now, I badly want to know more about their friends and family. I received a complimentary advanced copy of this book from the author through Give Me Books Promotions.

Room 143 is emotional, sexy, and - did I mention it's emotional? There's just something about a big, tough guy crying that gets me every time, so of course, Nash had me crying big ol' tears. My heart just broke for him. However, this one is not all angst and sorrow. Nope, we also get some fan yourself sexy, and Laramie Briscoe's well-timed wit to keep things from getting too heavy. From the beginning, one word kept coming to mind for this romance: kismet. There's just no getting around it. It may not be supernatural, but this one is without a doubt meant to be. I'm being deliberately vague to keep from giving spoilers, so I'll just say Room 143 is wonderfully written, loaded with feels, and just an all-around beautiful story. The characters are brilliantly drawn and pull you right into their story. And what a story it is! Definitely a must-read.
