Who knew a bad boy could mend a broken heart?

What does a girl do after she discovers her fiancé is a cheating bastard?

In my case, I performed the ritual implosion of all scorned women. I drowned my sorrows in cases of white wine, wallowed in gallons of ice cream, and ignited a bonfire to burn away every damn remnant of his existence. Six months later, the only result was a permanent impression of my ass on the couch.

Adventure Dating my friends dared.
A new and exciting opportunity they said.

I thought they were crazy, but I’m not one to back down from a challenge, so I signed up for the entire four-week deal.

That’s where I saw HIM. Lucas Cummings. He isn’t the classic rich boy I usually end up with. The one whose idea of working up a sweat is waiting for his margarita to be served beachside. Nope. He’s a rough and tough bad boy that all fathers warn their daughters about. You know the type. Cocky swagger, chiseled jaw—the ‘V’.

SOLD, I said to myself, until I discovered he was so much more than just a BOXER.

Left Hook.
Right to the heart.


#TeamUnicorn for the win! The dynamic duo known as Piper Rayne have done it again! When I turned on my kindle the other night and saw this little beauty downloading, I squealed super loud because the moment I finished Charmed by the Bartender I was so freaking ready and willing to jump right back into the modern love world with Tahlia’s sure to be extraordinary story! After what happened to Tahlia in Whitney and Cole’s story I thought that she deserved her happily ever after love story and let me say these authors delivered just that and so much more!

The second I started reading Hooked on the Boxer, I knew that there was no way that I was putting it down until I reached the very end, even if I had to neglect some of my adult responsibilities for a few hours. I found myself devouring Tahlia and Lucas’ story in only a few short hours because it was impossible to not inhale every moment of their book! Just like the last book, I absolutely adored every second and it made me feel all warm and fuzzy inside from beginning to end!

Thalia is the prim and proper woman who left her fiancé at the alter (or more like right before) when she discover his cheating ways. The last thing she wanted was to be in another relationship so soon, but that is exactly what happens when she least expected it to. Lucas is a bad boy boxer who sets his eyes on the beautiful Thalia and knew he was going to make her his…even if he has a few secrets he isn’t ready to share. Their relationship was extremely intense at times and gave me all the feels!

Oh and let’s not forget that shocking surprised in Chapter 26 – holy moly I was not expecting that at all. OOPS…maybe I’ve said too much…oh well I guess I will just leave you all with that little fact while you are reading! Their love story truly spoke tp me and I am once again eagerly anticipating the next installment in the Modern Love series! There is no doubt in my mind that Mad About the Banker…aka Lennon’s story is going to have me experiencing some overwhelmingly intense feeling!


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.
