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.


Can I just start this review off by saying that our dynamic duo have done it once again! Every single time I pick up one of their stories I know that it’s going to be hands down a binge-worthy read because their characters are always extremely relatable that you can’t help but fall in love with them.

Vance Rose (Charlie’s older brother who we meet in Sexy Beast) and Layla Andrews have that undeniable amount of chemistry that readers absolutely love to experience. This was a story filled with love, laughs, lies and a whole lot of drama…seriously don’t we all love our fair share of DRAMA?! Not only do we have our sexy couple, but we’ve got our sweet little one’s (Layla’s children – Payne and Via) that capture our hearts. As much as I LOVED our couple I think they were our true stars and stole the show!

I absolutely adored Vance and Layla’s story and I cannot wait to see what the rest of the series has to hold! Come on ladies…bring on DOGGIE STYLE!


I could not get enough of this book. I devoured it in one sitting! Piper Rayne does a great job bringing her characters to live and making them real, and loveable. There was plenty of comedy – drama – and love.

It’s the perfect Rom Com and is absolutely worth one clicking…

Now, I’m waiting for the next story from Piper Rayne to drop!

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.
