SAWYER SAYS by Carey Heywood is a standalone companion novel to HER, taking place right as a certain event happens and follows Sawyer Sterling, the best friend of Sara Miller. I loved Sawyer in HER so I was excited to read more of why she does what she does.
Let me just say that Carey Heywood is a real gem and her writing is honest and raw. Yes, there are some hot scenes and Jared is a doll, patient and kind but how Sawyer deals with all the findings out about her life is the real treasure. This is a story about self discovery and how not everything that you think to be true really is. We never know the motives of why someone does what they do until we understand that person. Views of a situation can sometimes be wrong and then we all have to turn inward to fix what we broke ourselves.
This is not a boy meets girl romance. This is a story of self discovery that just happens to contain a love story. I would highly recommend SAWYER SAYS and really anything Carey Heywood writes.
SAWYER SAYS by Carey Heywood receives 4 out of 5 Platypires.
TEXAS HUGS and Happy Reading!!!
