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

Love, Cass is a book that complements Liam, which I have not yet read. This book could be read before, after, or completely as a standalone. I am going to read Liam's book now that I have read this, as it takes place in the time after Cassy.

Cassidy O'Reilly is an amazing woman who lives a joyful life. She marries Liam O'Reilly, the love of her life and is blessed with wonderful family. Then when she becomes pregnant, she is given the worst news you can get. Together they make a decision to have

Stephanie St Klaire has me weeping before I ever read word one in chapter one. This is a companion story for a book I had already read and knew what the out come would be before reading but yet I read it voraciously. Cassidy is the wife of Liam. She has beat cancer once and has a new outlook on life.
I don’t want to spoil anything but this is how a strong, brave and totally how I want to handle this situation woman handles the worst situation any person should have to deal with. Cass is determine

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.

GUTTED!!! I am crushed on the floor bawl

“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 fiercely as poss

This is the first book that I have read from Ms. St. Claire and I loved it. It is a companion novel to Liam and is told before the events of that book. I now need to go and read his book because I want to see how he survives after the loss of Cass. This book will rip your heart out and have your crying by the time it is over but you will not want to put it down. You need to see how she says goodbye to the ones she loves. All I can say is make sure you have a box of tissues by your side because b ...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

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

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.

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

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

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.

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.
