Time to get a life.
Time to start over.
Time to move beyond the past.
The guys in the Single Dads Club would tell you it was time years ago, but until recently, the risk of hurting my little girl outweighed the benefit of getting a piece of ass.
Now that I have a tween daughter on my hands? It’s becoming more apparent with every poster hung on the wall, every fight over wearing make-up and every uncomfortable conversation about puberty, that at least one of us needs a female touch in our lives.
Jesus. I can’t even think the words ‘female touch’ without thinking of her.
Charlotte Rose. Charlie.
She’s everything I shouldn’t want, but someone needs to tell that to my damn libido because every time she’s around I have a constant case of blue balls.
There’s a list of reasons why I shouldn’t give into what I feel—she’s my best friend’s little sister, she’s seen me at my most vulnerable, and the biggest one—she’s the first person in twelve years who has the potential to break me.
I knew the moment I opened my email and discovered that this book was FINALLY ready to go, that it was jumping in front of all my other upcoming reads (even if I do have two ARCs due by Tuesday morning)! Ever since we were first introduced to Garrett and Charlie in BOOK ONE of the Single Dads Club series I have been craving their HEA. As much as I have absolutely adored the previous to couples, this was the book that I was most excited about because these two have managed to wiggle their way into my heart and have firmly stayed planted in there for the past few months (of course the amazing dynamic duo didn’t make their loyal readers wait too long)!
OMG! So let me start off with this amazingly gorgeous cover! I have to say that this one is hands down, without a doubt my favorite of the series (although I love them all), but the only thing that would have made it even better is just a little more #GroinCleavage. The cover model is exactly how I’ve pictured Garrett in my head…and that sexy beard was certainly what sealed the deal!
Now…on to the story! As I’ve already mentioned, Garrett and Charlie’s story is the one that I have been anticipating the most. In the past two books readers have witnessed many of Charlie’s FAILED attempts to get Garrett to finally notice just how much she is totally one hundred precent in love with him, but of course being the stubborn a** he is, he refused to give into temptation. I literally thought that I was going to faint when he FINALLY accepted the fact that he had feeling for her and that maybe it was time for him to move on with his life. When I first started this book I wasn’t sure if Garrett was ever going to be able to open his heart up again after losing his wife the day their daughter was born. This man is so freaking swoon worthy and if I hadn’t already been head-over-heels in love with this character before, then I think this book would have totally convinced me that he is the man of my dreams. I love that no matter how tough things got, Charlie always looked at the silver lining and in the end these two did in fact get their HEA!
Charlie and Garrett’s story was so perfect and now I am left here once again waiting for yet another book from this dynamic duo to be releases…I mean how can you tease your readers by saying that Charlie’s brother is getting his own book in the next series? What am I going to do with myself until September?!
About Piper Rayne
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.
