Title: Real Deal
Series: Single Dads Club #1
Author: Piper Rayne
Genre: Romantic Comedy
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.
Real Deal is the first title in the new series the 'Single Dad's Club' by the writing duo of Piper Rayne. Cat and Marcus' story is well written, told in a dual point of view, and is a perfect blend of heart, heat and humor.
This pair of characters were quite intriguing, some of Marcus' personalities traits I didn't love, but I didn't hate him either, whereas I found Cat to be quite endearing. I found Marcus to be quite guarded, and private, and he has issues with trust, due to his past relationship. The age gap between Cat and Marcus was on the bigger side, but I still felt the connection and chemistry was believable and intense. The love scenes that this pair share are incredibly hot, and steamy!
I've got to admit, I haven't read many books of the single father trope, but really quite enjoyed this sweet and sexy story and I thoroughly adored Lily's character. The overall banter was fun, flirty and humorous.
I thoroughly enjoyed the side characters, and eagerly await their stories. Although this was my first time reading anything written by Piper Rayne, it definitely will not be my last. Overall a really enjoyable read that i'm sure contemporary romance lovers will really enjoy. I can't wait for the next installment in the Single Dads Club.
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.
