Too much make-up.
I could go on and on. The other guys in the Single Dad’s Club would say I’m obsessed with finding them. But none of their kid’s mothers call a maximum-security prison home either, so their opinions mean shit.
Caterina Santora has her own list of red flags…
She’s too young.
She’s my client’s daughter.
She’s my five-year old’s camp counselor.
Even after repeating this mantra to myself every morning on the way to Lily’s summer camp, guess what happens the moment I see Cat? Yeah, that mantra turns into ride me, doggie style and reverse cowgirl.
Every. Damn. Time.
The fact that she doesn’t remember me from seven years before grates on me until I don’t have it in me to leave her alone any longer. I have to have her. But our lives are opposites in every way. In no way compatible.
When we’re together all the complications fade away and I have to keep reminding myself, even if I can have her— I can’t keep her.
Piper Rayne is becoming an author that this book whore enjoys reading. The growth with each book just makes me more and more of a fan. The Real Deal is a sexy single dad romance and I think this may end up being one of my new favorite troupes. Now if my husband ever reads this review, which my luck he will even though he never does, there was this hot dad when my daughter was in pre-school, and trust me he made me waking up, fighting with a cranking toddler all worth it to see him in the mornings. Damn I miss seeing that eye candy in the mornings but I digress. The Real Deal is a book that I really enjoyed and can easily recommend.
Marcus and Cat’s story is funny, sweet, sexy and an enjoyable read while sitting curled up on the couch or outside enjoying the sunshine. I was able to read this one in a day easily, but I do tend to read fast. Marcus and Cat have a history from a few years back, will Marcus and Cat be able to have that second chance or will hurt feelings and the way people change as they get older be what keeps them apart? Well I am not going to tell you, you have to read the Real Deal for yourself to find out. Trust me you will want to read it to find out 😊
The Real Deal is the first book in this series and I personally can’t wait for the next book to come out. Piper Rayne is an author you need to try out if you haven’t yet and the Real Deal is a book that needs to be on your TBR lists!
Piper Rayne, or Piper and Rayne, whichever you prefer because we’re not one author, we’re two. Yep, you get two established authors for the price of one. You might be wondering if you know us? Maybe you’ll read our books and figure it out. Maybe you won’t. Does it really matter?
We aren’t trying to stamp ourselves with a top-secret label. We wanted to write without apology. We wanted to not be pigeon holed into a specific outline. We wanted to give readers a story without them assuming how the story will flow. Everyone has their favorite authors, right? And when you pick up their books, you expect something from them. Whether it’s an alpha male, heavy angst, a happily ever after, there’s something you are absolutely certain the book will contain. Heck, we’re readers, too, we get it.
What can we tell you about ourselves? We both have kindle’s full of one-clickable books. We're both married to husbands who drive us to drink. We're both chauffeurs to our kids. Most of all, we love hot heroes and quirky heroines that make us laugh, and we hope you do, too.
