Say It Again
In the final First Wives novel by New York Times bestselling author Catherine Bybee, falling in love could become the most dangerous dare of one woman’s life.
Protector-for-hire Sasha Budanov is accustomed to life as a loner. Always on the move, she’s now reached a crossroad. Looking for answers about her shadowy youth, she’s returned to the strict boarding school in Ge...more
Sometimes with an anticipated character like hers, the background just can't compare once you learn it. Boy is that not the case he ...more
SAY IT AGAIN (First Wives Club Book 5) by Catherine Bybee is the last romantic suspense in this series and features the mysterious Sasha, who has made intriguing appearances since book 1. This is a well written series of books that have unique suspense and relationship plots that can be read as standalones, but the relationships between all of the “First Wives” evolve and change, so in my opinion it is best to read the series in or ...more
Enter AJ. His sister, a previous student of Richter, has been murdered and AJ is determined to find her killer. AJ wasn’t super close to his sister, so he decides to trace her past ...more
When A.J. signals her out to help him find clues to his sister’s murder, Sasha is hesitant. But soon she’s leading the way and A.J. willingly follows. With the help of Reed and Neil as well as their team of experts, they find connections ...more
As I have been reading the First Wives series, Sasha has always been the one that I have needed to know more about. She lives on the outskirts of the "First Wivers" and their families, kind of on the outside looking in, but that is the way likes it... or is it.
She is such a badar$e, you just never know what she is going to get up to next. I loved learning more about her past and how she got to be the woman she is today. And she's the kind of woman w ...more

“You help everyone. We trust that you’ll be there. When will you trust that we will be here for you?”
“The moment you trust someone to be there is when they leave.”
It only took a hot minute for me to be dazzled by Catherine Bybee’s books when I first discovered them, but it was this series in particular that made me irrevocably fall in love with her storytelling, so seeing it come to an end was nothing short of bittersweet. And while I always expected this heroine’s story to be somewh ...more
One thing I have come to absolutely love about this author is that she NEVER allows her stories to fit any mold. Rather, she follows her characters where they lead instead of forcing them into her box of “contemporary romance”. Yes, all are contemporary but each and every story is different depending on the people within those stories.
This book focuses on Sasha, a very intricately layered woman who is something of a James Bond in female form. She uses her extensive talents to help and pr ...more
I’m so sad this is the last “FIRST WIVES” book from Catherine Bybee, because I simply love all of the additions to the series, this one included.
For the past few books we’ve seen SASHA BUDANOV as a bad ass protector and security maven. SAY IT AGAIN finally gives up a glimpse of who – and what- she really is.
First and foremost, she’s a loner. Raised in a military-type school where she thought she was an orphan, Sasha is a woman for whom the words “I love you” was never said to her.
Now, at a cross ...more
Full of action, adventure, romance and heart. I love the lesson about family though not in blood. The naughty way AJ gained Sasha's heart...so many LOL moments between them even with the other characters. This opens your mind to exploitation of talents and skills of minor to grow up spies and assassins. To make them heartless and robotic to these "employers". Had an awesome time reading this, thank you! Oh by any chance, can you do a spin off on Cooper and Clair...there's ...more
Say It Again is an emotionally-charged romance with plenty of action and great characters. The plot is suspenseful and had me flipping the pages on my Kindle quickly. As with all ...more

Okay, so still don’t really have the time but the suspense was killing me! So I paused everything and it was Sasha time!
If you’re a fan of the series, you will absolutely love Say It Again!
And if you’re not a fan of the series, you will absolutely love Say It Again!
It is INTENSE! From start to finish and I’ve read the book overnigh ...more
This is the fifth (and sadly, final) book in the series. If you have not read any of them yet, then I would recommend that you do, as they are really good. You will meet characters from the previous books here, but actually Sasha's story is quite separate, so you could read this first and then go back. Each story is wonderfully unique and this one certainly is too! Sasha was never a first wife, however, she has been an i ...more
Reading this book was bittersweet, knowing that it is the final book in the series. There is something about Catherine Bybee’s style of writing that resonates with me. She weaves a story that has me totally immersed from the first to the last page.
Although a stand alone I would probably be inclined to read the previous books in the series before reading Say It Again as the books provide the back story for this book.
This is Sasha Budan ...more
I have been intrigued by Sasha since the very first book in the series. She has always been kind of an enigma, floating in and out of the other character's lives as she sees fit. In Say It Again we learn all about Sasha's past and what has made her into the woman we saw in the first four books. AJ Hofmann enters Sasha's life while investigating his ...more
Could not wait for Sasha's story! She was so mysterious in the previous books and snuck in and out and you just wanted more of her.
She sets up a huge chain reaction when she goes back and visits the "boarding" school she attended and graduated from. There are a few twists and turns that you do not see coming and I could not put the book down!
When Sasha meets AJ, there is not the instant love as Sasha is not used to this emotion and it kind of grows ...more
AJ is looking for the killer of is sister and he suspects that it has something to do with the school she attended. The same school that Sasha did.
Sasha Budanov is a protector for hire. Trained in the Military arts at a select Boarding School in Germany. Loner Sasha discovers a connection of murders when she meets American AJ Hoffman.
Once again the wives & their families from the previous books all come together to look out for each othe ...more
This one has action, thrill, intrigue and of course romance. It’s pretty perfect.
I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this book. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
