Who knew my brother’s friend could be Mr. Right, and not just Mr. Right Now?
My brother refused to introduce me, so I blame him. If he’d just caved, and introduced me to Jasper, I wouldn’t be in this mess. I mean, really, what’s the big deal? I’m not interested in the guy’s looks.
Oh no, I want his cold hard cash. (Be honest, you were expecting that other four letter ‘c’ word weren’t you?)
Now, before you go getting all judgy, I’m not a gold digger. I have a legitimate business opportunity for Jasper to invest in. The problem is that my stick-up-his-ass brother is embarrassed that his twin sister invents kick ass sex toys. His problem, not mine.
So, I took matters into my own hands. Defeat isn’t a word in Lennon Hart’s dictionary.
Using my stealthy P.I. moves, I narrowed my search to a time and place where I knew I could find him. It was completely innocent. A chance meeting that would give me the opportunity to pitch my business.
It wasn’t until I sat down across from the gorgeous panty soaking man in front of me, that I realized I wanted so much more than just his money. I could very well want his heart if I wasn’t careful.
Apparently my P.I. skills aren’t as stellar as I thought because Jasper had his own secret—and it changed EVERYTHING.
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.
This cover (like the book itself) is my least favorite of the trio. It’s a bit on the boring side, and the guy on the cover isn’t ANYTHING like how “I” pictured Jasper. The typography is interesting, though.
So this one ended up being my least favorite of the trio. I’ll get into why in a second but first I want to say that while this one didn’t quite meet my expectations, it was a still a very enjoyable book.
This is Lennon’s story and if you’ve read the first two you know Lennon is the crazy fly by her pants tatted up friend. She drives a unicorn van and designs sex toys. I LOVED her in the first two books so I couldn’t wait to see her first hand in hers.
The first part of the book was going well. I enjoyed both Jasper and Lennon. It was hot. It had humor. Then something was introduced. I can’t really explain “what” without spoiling the book, but suffice it to say when that plot point was brought in is when the book went off the rails for me. Jasper lost his edge. Lennon lost her spark and the connection I was feeling fizzled out. I felt like the lightheartedness that I loved in this series went out the window and the book turned rather serious and more angsty.
Jasper was also my least favorite of the heroes. Sure he was hot and all Dom like at times, but his
over reaction at the end soured me on him pretty fast. He acted like a child considering the stakes involved when one 10 minute conversation (which BTW is about as long as he groveled for) could have cleared the air. I also had an issue with the way Lennon’s whole family treated her they were a bunch of judgy douches. *lol*
So I know it sounds like I didn’t enjoy this one, but often it is the bad stuff we didn’t like that takes up the most page space. All three of these books have been entertaining reads, and I would recommend them ALL. So sally forth and read
