Say A Prayer is the fourth novella in the Like A Lady serial. It cannot be read as a standalone.

It hurts. God, does it ever hurt. Having your heart ripped from its home in your chest, metaphorically or literally, isn’t a fun thing. No, it’s gruesome, and once in a lifetime was more than enough. Twice. Twice is almost unbearable. I’ll make it, though. I’m strong enough to persevere, to move on, and I will because I know that there’s no other option. I can’t stop living. I won’t stop living. ~Red

One step. Two. I’ll take it a day at a time and hope to hell the pain goes away. The thing is, I know it won’t. It just keeps getting stronger because without her love, I’m lost. And it sucks. This feeling, the loss, it’s getting worse, but what am I supposed to do about it? She won’t listen to me. Nothing I say has swayed her, not a bit. Why can’t she see I’m miserable without her? ~Mason

***Stephenee, #NerdGirlSteph Review***
 This is book #4 in the Like A Lady Series and you do need to read the prior books to understand what is going on in this one.  I love Author S J Sawyer’s writing style, her humor, her characters and her train of thought.  She is able to take the reader on a roller coaster ride of emotions, laughs, and drama and make it into the readers most fun day ever.  While you are reading this book, you will instantly fall in love with the characters, the way in which the author weaves the story, the drama and the fun that the author is having with her characters.  The reader has no problem instantly realizing that the author loves her job and that she loves her characters just as much.

This book picks up where book 3 leaves us – Mason, Red and MaryAnne are in the midst of a love triangle/quarrel that threatens their friendships, relationships and future.  Red has found out that her boyfriend/summer fling/love of her life has been with her best friend and now nothing can ever be the same.  The drama and angst that pours out of the pages is instantly relatable to by any reader and the humor that MaryAnne brings to the story keeps the reader engaged and laughing out loud – even if they are not in the comfort of their own home…note to reader….beware that you will laugh out loud a lot so be mindful of where you are reading.

The author continues to try to make the reader like Jake and Shelby (soooo not gonna happen) and the author gives us closure on all of the lose ends regarding Red, Mason and MaryAnne, however, she does start a new thread that instantly hooks the reader and they don’t want to stop reading.  This book and these characters stay with the reader long after they have finished the story and the reader continues to predict the path that each character will go down next.  This is a book hangover that will last a few reads after it to finally move on fully….be warned….this series is bound to make your top ten list of favorites and it will take a long time for anything to compare to it or take it down a notch in the ratings.

Add this series to your TBR list and don’t hesitate to start it right now – it is that good!! Enjoy and don’t be afraid to let the author know how much you enjoyed it – Don’t forget that you will be laughing out loud so beware of where you are!! People will either want to know why or think that you are losing it….
