My musings…

4.5 Katniss & Peeta CROWNS

With each book in the Modern Love series, I fall even more in love with the writing of Piper Rayne.  I enjoy their heroines, their heroes are swoonworthy, and their stories are the best blend of romance and comedy. I am always thoroughly entertained.

I have been anxiously awaiting Lennon’s story because I love this lady, and I think readers will, too.  She is unique and an individual, and she owns that.  She also owns her sexuality, which is one of the attributes I love most in a heroine.  What really makes me adore her is that she is open to pursuing something with Jasper, even when that is not her norm.  I love her openness, her job choice, her adventurous spirit, really just everything about her.

Jasper is equally tied with Lucas for my favorite of the heroes in this series, because how do you choose between a sexy boxer and dominant business man.  You don’t! So, I will be taking them both. Jasper, though, is equal parts supportive, caring, and dominant in the bedroom, the perfect blend for the alpha hero readers love.  Like Lennon, readers will love his ability to dominate but not make her feel controlled, and they will adore that he supports her individuality.  Plus, Jasper has a little bit of bad hidden underneath his suit, which just makes his business side all that more delectable.

This story is fun and entertaining, plus it has all the steam and romance readers love.  Just like their other books, Piper Rayne starts this book off right away with the hot and heavy, and the chemistry between the two is on fire.  What I love most is the conflict path that they chose.  While it is along the thread I thought it would be, it wasn’t exactly what I expected, and I love when authors get me.  As always, it has the HEA romance readers love.

Piper Rayne is quickly becoming a one-click writing duo for me.  I love the characters, the humor, the chemistry, just everything.  Every single one of their novels leaves me entertained and sated as a reader.  I cannot wait to see what they have planned next

Synopsis:

Who knew my brother’s friend could be Mr. Right, and not just Mr. Right Now? 

My brother refused to introduce me, so I blame him. If he’d just caved, and introduced me to Jasper, I wouldn’t be in this mess. I mean, really, what’s the big deal? I’m not interested in the guy’s looks.

Oh no, I want his cold hard cash. (Be honest, you were expecting that other four letter ‘c’ word weren’t you?)

Now, before you go getting all judgy, I’m not a gold digger. I have a legitimate business opportunity for Jasper to invest in. The problem is that my stick-up-his-ass brother is embarrassed that his twin sister invents kick ass sex toys. His problem, not mine.

So, I took matters into my own hands. Defeat isn’t a word in Lennon Hart’s dictionary.

Using my stealthy P.I. moves, I narrowed my search to a time and place where I knew I could find him. It was completely innocent. A chance meeting that would give me the opportunity to pitch my business.

It wasn’t until I sat down across from the gorgeous panty soaking man in front of me, that I realized I wanted so much more than just his money. I could very well want his heart if I wasn’t careful.

Apparently my P.I. skills aren’t as stellar as I thought because Jasper had his own secret—and it changed EVERYTHING.

Synopsis:

Who knew sleeping with the enemy could be this fun?

Was the one night stand a good idea?

Well, no. Probably not in retrospect.

In my defense I had just moved back into my grandparent’s house, I’d lost my dream job, and a guy on Tinder had stood me up. It was like life had suddenly stamped ‘LOSER’ on my forehead.

So when the guy behind the bar started giving me THE look…you know, the one that promised I’d be screaming his name into the wee hours of the morning? When that guy also has the perfect amount of scruff on his chiseled chin, biceps bulging out of his t-shirt, and a cocky grin you knew he’d earned in the sack…when he gives you that look, you don’t bother to figure out what your six degrees of separation are. You jump on that horse and ride it!

Pun fully and completely intended. And accurate by the way.

I fully admit to feeling sorry for myself and acting impulsively, but by the time I’d figured out WHO the bartender was, I was already falling for him.

Synopsis:

“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 on the beach. 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.

AUTHOR BIO:

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.
