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 pigeonholed 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.

descriptiondescriptiondescriptionA pretty good cover on this one. Although I am not sure why their heads are cut off, but c’est la vie I guess. It is a great representation of the story. It also has good composition and eye catching title work as well.description


descriptionYou know I don’t actually have much to say about this one. It was just a super sweet (maybe slightly predictable) feel good type of read, and I enjoyed it immensely. As per usual with these authors, the writing was excellent. The pace was excellent. The plot was engaging and kept me turning the pages. It was sweet. It was funny (the diaper changing scene LMAO). It’s a bit of a slow burn with no sex until 60%. There was a smidge of OW/OM drama but not a ton of angst. The secondary characters were interesting, and I can’t wait to read about the other guys. Although there always seems to be a douche manwhore in the mix and this time it was Jagger. But I’ve got my fingers crossed that these authors can work their magic again and have me loving him by the end of his book. The kids were also adorable, and I loved Payne. 
descriptionBoth main characters were very likable. Vance was just a nice guy who had shit for brains when it came to a certain issue and of course, it blows up in his face (when doesn’t it??) But he was adorable with Layla’s kids. Layla was also quite likable. Although I did question her sanity at leaving her two kids with a guy she JUST meets and knew NOTHING about. But hey, it’s fiction, so I let it go. Lastly, it was all wrapped up in a super sweet little ending that had me tearing up a bit. What more can you ask for? This gets two solid thumbs up from yours truly. Now bring on Leo’s book!description
