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

“Sometimes, you just have to say a prayer and go for it, hoping like hell that everything is gonna be alright at the end. So, let’s say a prayer and get on the road. We have people to do and places to see.”

^^^^ My favorite quote from the book <3

The first word that pops in my head after reading Say A Prayer is... Perfect!! I love Mason, I love Red, I just love this entire series and all of it's characters!! I can't wait for more! Great job S.J. this book is amazing!!

I really like the plot of S.J.'s books. I love the Like A Lady series. I can never get enough of Mason and Red. This book was the perfect reflection and culmination of Mason and Red's story. I can't wait to read No Offense, Darlin'. It looks great! I am originally from a small town in the mid-west, so I can relate to a lot of these stories and it makes me feel right at home.

I have been hooked to the Like A Lady series since book 1, and so was very excited to finally get to read Say A Prayer. I'm so very glad it didn't disappoint, but I do wish it had been longer as I LOVE LOVE LOVE these characters. Say A Prayer starts up right where we were left with Red's heart being broken by her best friend and Mason. Even though it was a long time ago, she still feels betrayed since they didn't tell her. Red is getting ready to leave for The University of Oklahoma but has yet ...more

So when Say A Prayer popped up on my kindle I devoured it...seriously I read it so fast that I will go back and read it again. I LOVE Red and Mason.

Say A Prayer is the fourth installment of SJ Sawyer's LIKE A LADY SERIES, and I must say I absolutely loved the way Mason and Red's story ended. I love a HEA kind of romance and when all comes together. Now while this one doesn't leave us with a cliffy, it sure does give us a little something to look forward to. A fifth book. The first few chapters, actually. It's just enough to excite you about what's to come! I know I can't wait :-)

I have to say that I was pleased by the way this all wrapped up. I think Red evolved into a better version of herself because of all that she went through in a the two months this series takes place. Thanks for another great book!

LOVED this book. It finally brought everything together. Gave us all our answers and even hinted at possible spin offs in the future. I am really going to miss these characters. We can go back and re read the series as a whole now to bring them back anytime.

Ok, so I read book 1 and really loved it, I loved the connection between Red and Mason, I loved all they're friends, I just really enjoyed it.
I then read books 2,3 and 4 together in a box set, and in book 2 it started going downhill for me, I'm not sure if i just didn't notice it in the first book or what but the time line in the last 3 books drove me up the wall! now I don't mind going back and forth but when the book is from 2 people's pov and it keeps going back and forth (not even to the sa

* I received an ARC of this novella in exchange for an honest 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

This is the fourth book in the Like A Lady Series and they need to be read in order.

Scarlett "Red" Summers is confused after discovering a past relationship between Mason Pierce and her best friend Mary Lou. As much as she knows she loves him she keeps reminding herself that this was only a summer fling.

Mason Pierce has loved Red for as long as he can remember and how far will he go to prove that his love is the real thing and meant for more than just a summer?

Yet there is also Jake Roberson wh

This book was a great way to bring everything together! Mason and Red's story is so down to earth. Loved getting to see the no good Jake getting his what for and The girls all making up. Can't wait to read more! Started book 5 yesterday!

Well dealing with the aftermath of part 3 of this serial series we are at a place that I thought we would never see Mason and Red but just goes to show that even those storybook couples experience real life troubles and everything isn't always smooth sailing. It's how we recover from those shocking events that seperate the couples who are meant to be from those who are just in lust not love. I love this entry in the series just for that reason. Watching them fight to regain what they had before ...more

Holy hell what a brilliant, rollercoaster of a ride the Like a Lady Serial has been!

Say A Prayer is the fourth novella in the Like A Lady Serials and picks straight up from where the third novella finishes

In Say A Prayer we pick up right where we left off in Fix Your Makeup. Red is reeling from what she feel is a betrayal of her best friend and Mason, the man she's loved forever. Her heart is completely broken compared to how she felt when she found Jake cheating on her wedding day. She doesn't think she'll ever be able to get past it but she doesn't know how to live without them.
Mason has loved Red for as long as he can remember, but never knew she felt the same. Having spent the summer with her

I am very sad; we have come to the end of Mason & Red’s story. I LOVE them and I wish the story would have been longer; I’m hoping we will get more in the future. Although it’s only been a summer, Scarlett has matured and has more self-confidence; finally realizing it’s meant to be. The story is told in alternating POV between Mason and Red, including scenes from their past. Way back in book 1 Mason and Red start their summer together as friends. In the previous book we are left wondering if ...more

Say a pray by S. J. Sawyer was once again a beautifully written book. I loved reading where Red and Mason's journey has taken them. I need more! There is twist and turns and you are always left on the edge of your seat thanks to S.J. Sawyer writing. The characters the plots are amazing.

The is the 4th (and hopefully not final) book in the Like A Lady Series.
This story follows Scarlett (Red) and Mason and how they have FINALLY become a couple.... until the truth of the past comes out. Now Red thinks it's like Jake all over again. But the pain it worse because she realizes that loosing Mason is awful because she really loves him... and he really loves her.

The previous book in the series left me hanging not knowing the rest of Red and Mason's story. It left me wanting to know whether they would remain apart or if they could get past the issues that broke them apart. Also wondering what would happen with the group of friends who seemed so close and looked out for each other.

I was irritated by Red not giving Mason a chance to explain what had happened or didn't with Mary Lou. I realize that finding your fiance in bed with a person who was supposed

In the fourth and final Like a Lady Series book called 'Say A Prayer' we return to see what Red and Mason are up to after their massive falling out with each other and with Mary Lou. At the beginning of the series all seemed only slightly complex but as the series continued on things got progressively worse and worse. By the time that the secret comes out, my heart has broken for these two over and over again.

Through it all we learn what real friendship is, what real relationships with our frien

The last of the Like A Lady series. I’ve been waiting for the final installment of Red & Mason’s story. I love that in this finale Red has finally learn and grow. She became more tougher and faced everything head on. Realizing that you yourself has a fault and owning those mistakes takes a lot of courage. SJ Sawyer has shown that in her characters, also the importance of family and friends. Of course it wouldn’t be Red’s story if there wouldn’t be funny, sweet & sexy scenes.

I waited to read book three until book four came out thinking it was the last one and now!...omg! I need book five! Lol. Wonderful Indy author. Everyone should pick up these books and laugh and blush and enjoy! These stories are so like real life in small town Oklahoma.

Best yet!

I'm sad this wasn't longer! I must say with honesty, other times I felt the past to present switches were confusing and I'd forget who I was reading about. This time around it seemed to flow better or maybe I just got use to the writing but either way, it worked. My favorite book out of this series. I do like that it's kept classy when it comes to sexual content. There's just enough to keep it interesting but didn't go full fledged "must be 21 to continue reading" material. Well done. B

I have to say, I expected a little more from the last book in the series. It felt shorter than the rest of the books, but I was very glad all the story lines wrapped up. It felt very obvious what was going on with Shelby, and I hated how Jake seemed to come out of nowhere, to act like a jealous boyfriend, when he avoided Red like the plague after *LITERALLY* screwing her over. It was refreshing light read, and I look forward to reading about Beau in the next segment!

Thank you S. J. Sawyer for c

Book four is more heartache and seeing if their relationship is just a summer fling or something that will last. Most of the book they are not together and Red has trying times with her ex. Her character is very strong and you see her start to evolve as an individual. Being apart for both of them is killing them and you can really start to see what their love is really about. S.J is an awesome writter and she has completed the series. To me we were just left wanting more. I wanted more closure w ...more

With the way Fix Your Makeup ended, my heart was broken for Red and Mason. In Say A Prayer, Red grows and becomes so much stronger. I'm particularly happy with the way she handled the jerk, Jake. I loved everything about this book. Such a great end to a wonderful series. I've loved the Like A Lady series from day one. I'm sad to know it's over, but looking forward to what else S.J. has up her sleeve. If you haven't read any of S.J.'s books, you should definitely start with this series. I highly ...more
