You might be wondering how you’ll know when your playboy ways are coming to an end. For some it might be an unexpected pregnancy (ahem… you know who), for others it might be finally landing the one woman you’ve always wanted (cough… I won’t mention any names). For me, it was the death of my mentor and the subsequent reading of their will.
The signs were there, they always are. But I didn’t notice them until it was too late, and my demise was complete.
Demise Sign #1– You find yourself thrust into the land of responsibility and you don’t immediately hightail it out of town.
Demise Sign #2– Despite being stuck with the world’s biggest Jekyll & Hyde, some sadistic part of you actually enjoys spending time with her.
Demise Sign #3– Your family suddenly stops wanting to weigh in on every decision in your life.
Demise Sign #4– Somehow you end up being the voice of reason in your tumultuous partnership.
Demise Sign #5 –You start thinking of other people before yourself.
Demise Sign #6– You agree to put yourself in the middle of an Alaskan reality TV show that has both of you sleeping in the same tent.
Sunny Shelly’s Review: 4 Stars
Another great Bailey Siblings book from Piper Rayne, and almost halfway through the series!
I really loved Denver and Cleo’s connection. They kind of knew one another from past interactions, and hated each other just enough to make the sparks fly. But what they thought about one another was dead wrong. Yes, Denver is a playboy, but he’s such a sensitive soul who has been hurt by everyone and everything he loves leaving him. Meanwhile, he sees Cleo as a spoiled rich girl, but that is not at all who she is as this story unfolds. There is so much depth to both of these characters, and watching them fall in love and fight it was a delight.
These books are all pinned as standalones, but I really felt that much of the last book (Falling For My Brother’s Best Friend) was reliant on knowing what came previously on this series. I don’t think that is the case with Playboy. Of course, all of the crazy Bailey siblings and Grandma Dori make their appearances and the family is as up in each other’s business as ever… but Denver and Cleo’s love story itself is contained.
I received an advanced copy and voluntarily left a review.
Piper Rayne, or Piper and Rayne, whichever you prefer because we’re not one author, we’re two. Yep, you get two USA Today Bestselling authors for the price of one. Our goal is to bring you romance stories that have “Heartwarming Humor With a Side of Sizzle” (okay…you caught us, that’s our tagline). A little about us… 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.
