If you’ve read “Liam” from the Brother’s Keeper series, you know who Cassidy O’Reilly is. But whether you have read “Liam” or not, you need to read this story! “Love, Cass” is a powerful and very emotional memoir that will tug at your heartstrings and, at times, tear your heart out while also helping you put your heart back together and your head in the right place. It’s an amazingly insightful tale about not only learning how to let go but also how to hold onto a dying loved one. While it is br ...more

“Stephanie St. Klaire is undoubtedly an extremely talented writer.”

“Life is a journey, she’d told me, and it’s our choice to live it or just go through it.“

This is a companion novel to Liam, but it is not necessary to read prior.
This is an absolutely beautiful story of love and loss. Cass has been free from cancer but learns that is has returned with a vengeance. This is her story about learning how to cope with knowing she is terminally ill.

Whether or not it was her intent, Ms. St. Klaire has just written the most heart wrenching, perfect love story. This is more than a romance. It calls to our hearts, our sympathy & our dreams. Cass & Liam had known each for most of their lives. Marriage just made their lives perfect. Finding out Cass was expecting made it more perfect. Then the bomb dropped.

This story has it all. A true love that withstands everything life throws at it. A wonderful heroine that laughs & loves as fier

Love, Cass is a beautiful memoir from Stephanie St. Klaire. It’s a heart wrenching yet a heart healing journey of Cass(Stephanie) , who was Liam’s (Brothers Keeper series) late wife. I can’t do it justice with my words. I’ve read everything Stephanie has written and loved them all , but this is by far the best story she has shared with us ! You’ll cry , a lot ! But you’ll be left with such a feeling of peace and comfort and even strength , and such love ! This one will stay with me for a long, l ...more

This book is so amazing, sad but amazing! Cassidy was such a strong woman. She was fighting for her life but also fighting for her family. I loved reading this whole thing from her point of view. Stephanie has always been one of my favorite authors. This sort about Cassidy is her story. I felt her pain, her JOY and her love! This is a tearful book for sure. All the tears were worth it! I wished I could give a higher rating then five stars. This book deserves ten or more stars! Thank you Stepanie ...more

The journey of Cassidy O'Reilly (and that of Stephanie St. Klaire) will resonate within my soul for years to come. The depth of the emotion that was pulled from me while reading Love, Cass rendered me speechless. The tears never stopped flowing down my face throughout the entire book. Tears of hope, love, heartbreak, loss and more. This story was an exceptionally written piece of art. The beauty that is love eternal shines bright on every single page, far outshining the sadness that one feels wh ...more

There are some stories that give the reader a reality check. There are some stories that make the reader reach deep inside themselves and feel everything. There are some stories that stay with a reader long after the story ends. Love Cass in one of those stories.

I was sucked into the pages of the book from page one and didn't resurface until the box of tissues was empty and the story, well at least Cass' story, had ended. I felt everything. My heart hurt.

OK Massive tissue alert!! Keep a box of kleenex close by while you read.

I can almost guarantee if you follow this family and have read the other books in the series you will not put this down til you are done.

This book is about Liam's deceased wife and how she wants to make it easier on her family. Now I am going to burrow in my hole and read the series again to have a wonderful new perspective on this wonderful family.

Prepare to have your heart ripped out…Author Stephanie St. Klaire has written the most emotionally challenging story you may ever have the pleasure of reading…Love Cass.

This author is in the midst of writing a series of novels about the O’Reilly brothers, who live and work in Portland, Oregon. An earlier book features Liam O’Reilly, who was married to Cass. They have a daughter named Reagan. Cass dies of cancer when Reagan is 4, and Liam has a really tough time dealing with her death. This book is written from the perspective of Cass saying goodbye to everyone that she loves and cares about during her final months of life. It rings especially true because the a ...more

Love Cass was heartbreakingly beautiful. And guaranteed to make you ugly cry. I put off reading it until I absolutely had to because I had no interest in reading this story. But from page one I was hooked and couldn't put it down. I can admit when an wrong. I'm glad I took a chance.

A truly heart twisting journey of a truly strong and timeless love that had me crying from beginning to end hitting every high and low along the way... was beautifully written, engaging, emotional and heartwarming story of hope in the darkness.

This One Will Get To You!

It’s not very often that a book can bring me to tears, but this one, oh, my! This story had me reaching way down deep to go beyond the superficial feelings of sadness and anger to find the true meaning of the real message here.

Cancer is an ugly enemy in our world, but one doesn’t really get up close and personal with it until all of a sudden, it becomes personal and a part of your life whether it’s you, a friend, or a loved one.

I love how this huge, alpha, O’Reilly fami

When reading the Brother's Keeper series, I learned about Cass through the characters in those novels. Unfortunately, you don't get much insight into her, as a character, or really the tragedy that she faced in her life. The thing was, even in the mentions of her, I could feel her presence and her impact.

Cass is one of the most beautiful, strong, and caring women I've ever read about. Even before she's truly faced with watching her end come near, the soul of this woman was stunning. The love she

Read Love, Cass by Stephanie St. Klaire and you might think you've opened the pages to the best Happily Ever After you could possibly witness, until you hit the half way mark & realize this could be life's most powerful self-help book.

Broken relationships? Write a letter.
Broken heart? Write a letter.
Broken promises? Write a letter.
Seeking forever? Write a letter.
Sealing fate? Write a letter.

This is more than a companion novel conjured up by the creative genius that is Stephanie's mind,

I’d grown to love Cass because of the comments the characters in some of the other Brother’s Keeper books, specifically Liam’s, have made about her. How she leaves her thoughts and feelings, for each milestone in her husband and daughter’s life, knowing she won’t be there to experience them herself.

A seemingly perfect life, with a fabulous husband, beautiful daughter, then marred by a disease that ultimately causes her demise, Cass puts it all in perspective. Not that there isn’t some agonizing

For me , this book started out a little frantic. Or maybe it was just me anticipating what would happen. I tried to stay away from previously written reviews, but i did see snippets here and there and tried to prepare for heartbreak. I don’t normally prejudge a book, but this one was hard not to, by the amount of things floating around social media.

I'll admit it takes a lot for a book to make me cry, but this one had me in tears several times. It's an emotional story, taking readers through the emotional journey as Cass says goodbye to her husband Liam, her young daughter, Reagan, and Liam's siblings as she comes to terms with her terminal diagnosis.

This is a beautifully written story about acceptance, letting go, and making peace with everything before passing on. You can't help but admire Cass's strength as she battles cancer and lets he

At first glance, after reading the blurb fornthod book my first thoughts were: sad, heart touching story, ugly cry...no big deal. Oh my-lanta is it SO much more! I have never been faced with a life ending diagnosis. After seeing and feeling everything that Cassidy is going through, I have a tiny sliver of a clue on how I would actually handle it. Her thought processes flow and are so realistically believable I found myself stopping and saying, " I would probably say/ask the same thing." I would ...more

Powerful and emotional story, full of courage and strength despite all that's thrown at them. Liam is loving and supportive throughout as is his family. Cass is someone who I hope I could emulate if circumstances ever arose, she never gave in, never stopped fighting and despite everything tried to make it as easy on her family as she possibly could. That the author based some of this on own experience shines through, my heart goes out to her that she ever had to suffer even with things going in ...more

When life gives you lemons, you make lemonade. I can`t believe how much strength it must have taken Stephanie St. Klaire to write this beautiful heart wrenching story. To even know that Cass`s struggle and worries were once the ones lived by the author is simply breathtaking. I loved the fact that she used some of her personal journey and incorporated it ,and Cass, in the Brother`s Keeper series. How a life sentence can become such beautiful memorable mom

Okay let's be real. I knew Cass' story because I love Stephanie St. Klaire's Brother's Keeper series. I even knew this would be an emotional roller coaster of a read, because well... it's Cass' story. If I'm being honest, I put it aside to read when I knew I would have unterrupted time and the ability to allow myself to feel everything I expected in this story. I am so glad I read this book.

Not only does it add to Stephanie St. Klaire's amazing series as a stand alone story, it gives us so much

I have been a St. Klaire reader since her very first book. I'm used to funny, sassy, sexy and romantic from her. I was not prepared for this book--AT ALL. Her writing has improved with every book, but I didn't realize that she was capable of ripping the heart right out of my chest. It is based loosely on St. Klaire's own health struggles. I have no idea how she ever wrote this. To put "Sassy Redhead" in the book was the nail in the coffin for me.

Love, Cass is a companion novel to Liam, book two in the Brother’s Keeper series. If you haven’t read it, no worries, you can read still read it without being lost. St. Klaire has given us a heartfelt story based loosely on her own life events through Cassidy’s words.

I have a grand life with everything I planned and dreamed for…but it has an end date.

Love, Cass is a powerful, very emotional companion story to the Brother’s Keeper series. It has its happy times, its sweet times, most definitely it has sad times. I don’t know how anyone could read this without crying. It showcases a dying women’s strength during the most difficult time a person could face.
