The Manny by Piper Rayne

**Review at the bottom

Title: The Manny
Series: Dirty Truth #1
Author: Piper Rayne
Genre: Romantic Comedy
Release Date: October 19, 2017

 

Secrets and lies are a killer way to start any partnership—especially a horizontal one.

 


 

Now, I’m a glass half full kinda of guy, so, after the ‘you’re fired’ speech was directed at me, I figure now’s the time to be the screenwriter I came to sunny California to be. Unfortunately, there are about as many people trying to sell a script in L.A. as there are vegans in the pacific northwest. 

 


 

But lucky for me, a few weeks ago my agent found an investor for my script. Hooray, all my problems are solved! NOT.

Because the investor will only agree to fund my film if I use one specific actress. And that one specific actress? Well of course, it just has to be the same actress I screwed over only months before. But she doesn’t need to know about that one tiny detail, does she? All that matters is getting her to agree to do the film and I’ll do whatever it takes. We can leave the past, in the past, right?

I thought my charm would win her over. Never would I have been prepared for the terms she laid out on the table.

She needed a nanny.
I needed a lead actress.
Somehow I became The Manny.

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.

 

review

Holy smokes….I love Vance and Layla and even Payne and Via and everyone else in this book. This is overall a great light-hearted fun book with that little bit of angst to give it that little something extra.

Vance could be my many at any time. He formed a bond with Payne from the first minute and you could feel the willpower Payne had with his nanny fade away with how Vance interacted with him. I don’t see how Layla couldn’t fall for him with how he was with her as well as her kids.

Vance is finally trying to get his script made into a movie, but the backer insists on Layla playing the lead role. She asked him to play manny for a week while she found a new nanny and she would agree to do his movie. But somewhere in that week, things go serious between Payne and Vance even and Layla saw the bond they formed.

I was waiting for the shoe to drop throughout and his past to come to light and while it did, it wasn’t necessarily in the way I thought it would, and I like that. These authors really keep you on your toes while cracking you up at the same time. The writing flowed nicely and you get very engrossed in this book and can’t believe when the end rolls around.

Filthy Player by Stacey Lynn
Release Date: October 9th

NEW-FilthyPlayer-Amazon

Synopsis:

The Raleigh Rough Riders are back, and this time Super Bowl Quarterback Beaux Hale finds himself playing the most important game of his life.

Every woman knows Beaux Hale is nothing but a player. Yet the first time he walks into Paige Halloway’s restaurant and flashes his sexy grin, she feels a heat between them spark. Too bad he opens his mouth and ruins it.

He may think his money, fame, and sexy looks will attract any woman—but he’s wrong.

Paige doesn’t have time for a man. She’s too busy keeping a roof over her head and taking care of her father to care about relationships.

Lucky for Beaux, he’s a man who’s ready to use all the plays at his disposal. He didn’t bring his team a Super Bowl victory by giving up at the first block in his path—and Paige Halloway has just become his new long-game.

Beaux also knows that sometimes, in order to win and claim your prize, you have to get a little bit filthy.

Sack Time by A.M. Willard

**Review at the bottom

Cover Design: MadHat Books

Release Date: September 27, 2017

 

Synopsis

Rules have never been more fun to break…

Sherry

I’m going to die an old maid with ten cats… Oh wait, I already have two…
I’m never going to feel the arms of a man around my waist again… Well, that’s what I thought until a pair caught me from face planting on the floor of my OB/GYN’s office. I didn’t even notice that my paper gown was open, showing off my double lattes to the man I was least expecting… Greyson Davis is the reason I need to set boundaries and rules—rules that I can’t break.

Greyson

The first thing you’re taught in ethics class is not to fall for a patient. They don’t teach you how to not fall for one, just said that you shouldn’t. Everything changed the second I walked in to see my sixth patient of the day. That’s when I set eyes on the sexy blonde bombshell who would cause me to break every rule ever written.

Review

What a great rom com…there were just so many funny lines. Greyson is such a sweet and caring guy that you can’t help but love him. There is just something about Sherry that draws you in and you wish you could be her friend and then when you find out how big her heart is, she moves into your heart even more. Her loving cats also gives her bonus points.

This book is so well written and therefore it is so easy to want to just sit and read the entire book in one sitting, and since it flows well and is light-hearted it is an easy thing to do. I don’t think I fully knew what I was getting into with this book, but I don’t consider that a bad thing.

Rules are meant to be broken is a good motto for this book I think since it fits so well. But it is so fun watching them break down walls and break the rules together. Sherry and Greyson are so much fun together…she wanted to resist him. But seriously from their first encounter with her embarrassment you will be laughing out loud.

BLURB:

Bros before hoes or so the saying goes.

However, Maxwell Sheridan threw that saying out the window the minute he hooked up with his best friend, Alex’s, poisonous ex. The moment he slept with her, he was hooked. Sloppy seconds was not his style, but she was a cruel addiction he couldn’t overcome. He thought his days of betraying his best friends were behind him. But Max learnt the hard way that history had a way of repeating itself.

That was until one moment on a bridge would change it all.

Josephine Faulkner is struggling. Mentally, physically, and emotionally. Life has caused her to grow up. Gone are the wild days, black hair, and dating men her ambassador father would never approve of. But juggling work and life has meant that university hasn’t been high on her priority list.

When Maxwell Sheridan finds her on a bridge, dropping small stones into the lake, a friendship and connection between them blooms.

He offers to tutor her.
She offers him her compassion.

But their undeniable attraction and friendship will be tested.

And her name…
Andrea Wallace.

Review

This is the 5th book in a series but the first one I have read…and while getting to know the other characters could have been nice I didn’t feel lost while reading it…also this is not a standalone as it ends on a slight cliffhanger. (So this can be considered book 1 of 2).

Max wants to find true love like all of his friends…but yet he keeps making bad choices and going after people he shouldn’t, until he meets Josie. But he doesn’t think he deserves it either because of his past choices.

Josie has a hard and busy life and doesn’t have time to date. Her mom is sick, she is in law school and she has a job. But a chance meeting (TWICE) with Max has her questioning everything. Max is everything she could want in a guy.

They are determined to stay friends, and so as feelings change, they both want more and yet think the other doesn’t, and that they aren’t good enough. But this is such a sweet love story because it kindof just happens, you see their feelings progress throughout their friendship until things change. Josie doesn’t look down on Max for his past with Andrea and Sarah and she is willing to accept him for who he is. Josie though doesn’t divulge about her mom so I am hoping that stuff comes up in book 2.

This ends on a slight cliffhanger, and in a way I saw it coming from the description of the book and yet I didn’t because I need more!! The writing is smooth and flows nicely and you really learn to enjoy both of these characters as well as their friends/her roommate. I love all the Gilmore Girl references as well, but I am team Logan. A great story and I can not wait for part 2.

One Call Away by Emily Goodwin

**Review at the bottom

Title: One Call Away

Author: Emily Goodwin

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Release Date: September 21

Chase Henson doesn’t play by the rules. He doesn’t let himself get attached, doesn’t stay in one place long enough to call anywhere home. So when he returns to the small town of Summer Hill for the first time in years, the last thing he expects to find is a reason to stay.

Sierra Belmont is lost. Devastated after a sudden tragedy that left her heart broken in a million pieces, Sierra is just barely getting by. Burying herself in work at Summer Hill’s only bookstore, all she wants to do is make it through another day.

And then Chase walks through the doors of The Book Bag, claiming he’s just there to buy a book. Rumors that he’s dangerous fly through the town, but Sierra isn’t afraid of him. He might be the last person she should be with, but he’s the only one who understands the depth of her pain. For the first time, Chase stands still, fighting the desperation to mend Sierra’s broken heart.

Always running, the past has never had a chance to catch up to Chase. But there’s a first time for everything.

ONLY $2.99 FOR THREE DAYS ONLY!!!

 Review:

I bawled when this book started….Sierra losing her first love was so heartbreaking to read about. And even over a year later we see her still struggling…and I love that Emily doesn’t just let her move on and be happy like she wasn’t completely broken when he died. We get to experience exactly how she feels and how she is so afraid to live her life because he should be there with her, and yet along comes Chase and she can’t help but have feelings that she never thought she would again. Chase is like a breath of fresh air for her. Chase has his own demons, and he needs a place to call home. This is a book about loss, love, finding where you belong and growing as a person. Chase and Sierra bring out the best in each other, they are a great pair.

And yet, you see that neither one is perfect and they both struggle at times. One major thing I loved was that both were book worms, and they bonded over that early. Obviously I love books since I am reading and reviewing one right now, so that was a nice touch. The author is so good at throwing in so many awesome references.

This book has it highs and lows, but overall you will keep turning the pages and this book is very engaging, the storyline is amazing and you will feel for both of these characters as well as the side characters. This is a book you will start and not put down until you have finished. This may be Emily’s best book yet.

Beauty by Mary Catherine Gebhard

**Review to follow during tour


 

 

 

 

 

Once upon a time, I thought love was a fairytale.

My prince was a Beast with blood on his hands and ice in his veins. My family offered to save me. The only price: leaving the tattered pieces of my heart behind.

Our love was irrational. Cruel. Unforgiving. Nothing like the storybooks said it should be—but it was perfect.

The longer we were apart, the more I lost myself. He was vicious and domineering, but I craved the submission. Together we were destructive, but I was addicted to the devastation. Still, I thought titles mattered. To my family I was princess, and to the Beast I was slave. I was too naïve to understand that even though he’d been my captor, he’d broken the shackles on my soul.

Once upon a time, I thought love meant happily ever after.

Now I know better.

 

I was going insane, absolutely aching, and it was just instinct to touch myself. He grabbed my hand, lifting it so my fingers were just below his chin.

“Greedy girl,” he said. “Don’t you know your orgasm is mine? I own this.” He sucked my fingers until they were clean and I moaned, rubbing my thighs together. I was so overstimulated, I was sure I was going to come just from the friction. I rubbed my thighs harder and he laughed darkly, pushing me off him. I fell to the ground.

Eyes still locked, Anteros reached behind and flipped over the coffee table. The glass crashed and shattered. Some shards hit my thigh, but I didn’t think about that or the mess or the possible danger because moments later Anteros was on the ground with me.

He crawled between my legs and spread them wide in the new space. I got to my elbows, watching him rapt.

“If you come without permission,” he said, licking a long, razor sharp trail from behind my knee to inside my thigh, “you will be punished.”
