Review: Room 143 by Laramie Briscoe


Note: An advanced reader copy (ARC) was provided by the author via Give Me Books Promotions.

Room 143 is the newest standalone read from Laramie Briscoe, and if you read the blurb, all I'm going to tell you is to hold off on making any assumptions and judgments. Some readers may think the story hints at or is flat-out about cheating even with the note from the author, but trust me, it REALLY isn't about cheating at all. What we have is a twenty-eight-year-old man named Nash Gilbert who is given a key card to a hotel called the Harper Valley Hideaway. But does he choose to use the key in his hand or does he choose to stay true to his vows and his ring?

This review was not easy to write, but not for the reasons you may think. I actually really liked this book. There isn't a whole lot of guessing that goes on because everything is cleared up in the first few pages, but just when I thought the story was going to go in one direction, I was caught by surprise at what awaited the main characters. We meet Nash, but we also meet the females in his life: Katie, Caroline, Bailey, and Taylor. Sorry, but I won't explain what role they play in Nash's life, but suffice it to say that just like the cheating, there is no polyamorous story line.

With the story being as fast-paced as it was, I was able to finish reading this book in about an hour and a half's time. In that short amount of time, Nash's character evolves from the state he's in when readers first meet him to how he is by the time we reach the epilogue. I have high hopes that we'll be getting stories on Nash's younger brothers, Jameson and Austin. I have an idea who they may be paired up with but I could be wrong. Either way, I've got all my fingers crossed. Other than a couple of blips out of nowhere, I found Room 143 to be a 4.5-starred read. ♥
