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 bullsh*t 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 just ok for me....prefer her other books. Nina WAS a brat!!!!!
Wow! Ms. Briscoe has given readers a stunning new novel that they will fall in love with, and want to read over and over again. Sketch is full of exceptional characters, which have a wide range of emotion and are very relatable; all of these characteristics are weaved into a beautiful love story. At first I was a little hesitant to read Sketch, I wasn’t really sure that I would care for the Sketch or Nina, they both seemed very self-centered, or so I thought. However, within minutes of starting Sketch it was clear to see that the anger and hatred wore born out of hurt. They had been a part of each other’s worlds for years and now they weren’t. They would have to decide how hard and how long were they willing to fight to put the pieces back together. Sketch and Nina would have to be willing to bare it all and talk through their problems, reconnecting emotionally and physically, falling in love all over again. This was a novel that grabbed my attention and held it completely though, I had to finish it, stopping was not an option. I had enjoyed Ms. Briscoe’s previous novels but she really shines in Sketch. The characters are very relatable, their emotions and pain. It can be easy to get lost in the everyday life and forget to connect with the ones we love the most, taking each other for granted and not stopping to enjoy them. Sketch and Nina are an example of countless relationships, striving to decide if they want to put the work in, or toss in the towel and call it good. I am so glad they worked everything out, and we were able to see the best in each other and their newfound dedication to their relationship. I held out hope that they would pull it off, I was worried something somehow would pop up and all hell would break loose. I wanted it to work so badly, I didn’t like one character more than any other, and I loved them equally. They truly were meant to be and it would have been heartbreaking to see them separated, so happy to see it work out. Sketch was a fantastic read and I would recommend it to anyone, it’s my new favorite of Ms. Briscoe’s!!
Laramie once again has written a hit! Sketch is a stand alone second chance love story. One of the things I love about Laramie's writing is how she develops her characters. She gives them so many dimensions that you can't help but develop true feelings about them whether you love them or hate them. And she didn't disappoint with Sketch. There are so many layers to Sketch and with every turn of the page more is revealed about him making you love him even more. Once you start reading Sketch you won't be able to put it down!
I love sketch...nina was a spoiled brat...she was lucky to have him. Consider me sketched...hnother hit by laramie
