Sexy Beast, the story of Charlie and Garrett, is one I have been waiting for since the start of the Single Dads Club series, and these two did not disappoint.
Garrett is just the gruff single dad I was hoping he would be. He has endless love for his daughter, which will make some ovaries explode. More than that, though, he is just a good man. He wants to do his job well, surround himself with the people he cares about, and be the best father he can be to his daughter, Sydney. Although he has much going for him, he is weighed down by the fear of a previous loss, and this apprehension prevents him from living a full life.
Charlie is several years younger than Garrett, and they have known each other from a very young age. She has crushed on him for several years, but now, as an adult, she is going to make her move. Readers are going to love that she is the aggressor in the beginning. She decides that she wants him and completely goes for it. Charlie also has a completely compassionate side that makes her the perfect fit for this broken family.
I really loved the story Piper Rayne created for these two. They balance the serious nature of loss and love with the hilarious antics of a single dad raising a pre-teen daughter hitting puberty. Not only do these moments make the reader laugh, but they serve to show Garrett that he needs to open his heart again. The connection between Charlie and Garrett is authentic and makes their quickly developing relationship believable for the reader. What really becomes endearing about this story, though, is seeing this trio become something real and beautiful.
This has been another great series from Piper Rayne. They always bring fun characters and stories, but what I really love is that there is always some twist to their stories I usually don’t see coming, which keeps this reader coming back for more.
ARC received in exchange for an honest review.
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 eleven years who has the potential to break me.

Snap a picture and caption it ‘Teenage boy in front of his first Playboy’ because that’s exactly how I feel right now and I’d bet that’s how I look.
Charlie stands in the doorway wearing a white bikini, her nipples hard and erect, begging to be touched. The first thing I notice is the way she doesn’t cover up, but opens the door wider, ushering me in with her free hand.
“I expected the pool guy.” Her voice changes pitch and I gather she’s as affected by this situation as I am. The only difference is, my arousal can’t be hidden.
“He’s out of town, so you got me.”
“And you can fix it?”
I stop and tilt my head her way. “Is that even a question?”
“Well,” she walks faster to catch up to me as I use a key to open up the one door that’s locked from guests. “Oh, I always wonder what’s behind these doors when I rent other people’s vacation homes.” She peeks her head over my shoulder and the scent of her perfume makes a beeline for my dick, making it twitch.
As he’s begging for an introduction, I squat to get away, but she doesn’t relent. Her tits are practically resting on my shoulder.
“Ever heard of personal space?” I remark, grabbing my tool set.
“This isn’t half as exciting as I thought it would be.” She finally moves back and I stand with the toolbox in my hands.
“Did you think there would be a dead body?”
She shrugs. “Porn maybe?”
“Why would there be porn?”
She purses her lips and looks up at the ceiling. It’s innocent and cute and I’m not sure I ever remember seeing her doing it before. “You know, the owner can’t keep it in their own house because they have a preteen daughter, so they keep their stash in the closet and watch it when there are no guests here.”
“Let me guess? I’m the guy with the preteen daughter.”
“You’re so smart. I see where Sydney gets it from.” She smiles, a mouthful of straight white teeth.
I nod and walk away. She follows.
“Do you need help?”
“Since I really have no idea what I’m fixing, I don’t know yet.” I open the screen door to the hot tub.
“It wouldn’t turn on.”
“That’s not a good sign.”
I open up the back and start working on it. The little I know about hot tubs might not be enough.
Charlie sits on the edge of the hot tub and puts her feet in, her purple polished toenails dipping in and out of the water.
“I think I deserve a discount if I can’t use the hot tub.”
I look up at her and she’s smirking.
She’s quiet for a few minutes while I fiddle around trying to figure out the source of the problem.
“I’m curious, Garrett…” she pauses and I glance up at her. “How do my tits look in this bikini?”

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. 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.
