Mar. 20, 2019

Advice from a Jilted Bride (The Baileys Book 2) by Piper Rayne is a story of growth and staying true to yourself even while stepping out of your comfort zone to explore just what might be the best decision of your life.

Synopsis:

What’s a girl to do after being ditched at the altar by text message? That’s right. Text. Message.

How does she pick up the pieces and move on? I’m no Dear Abby but here’s a little free advice…

 

Advice #1 – First, purge your apartment of all things him—by tossing his belongings off the balcony.

Advice #2 – Do not, I repeat do not, throw anything out into the hallway because you’ll injure your hot new neighbor.

Advice #3 – When said neighbor brings over Chinese Food do not let him stay and keep you company. It’s awkward when you realize he’s your boss.

Advice #4 – Accept his offer to help you with your side business but think twice before using a date to his sister’s wedding as collateral.

Advice #5 – Investigate who your mystery neighbor really is. Don’t trust his word even if he’s the world’s best kisser.

If you listen to nothing else, pay attention to that last one. It’s the most important and will save you a lot of heartache.

Ceej’s Review:

Advice from a Jilted Bride is a story of growth and staying true to yourself even while stepping out of your comfort zone to explore just what might be the best decision of your life.  This book is different from Piper Rayne’s usual rom-com.  It’s a slow burn romance with some chuckles.  But what I enjoyed most about this book was the growth I witnessed in both Brooklyn and Wyatt.

Brooklyn…my heart broke for her even while I wanted to avenge her.  I wanted to join her brothers in finding her ex then string him up personally by what he supposedly has between his legs.  Oh, and her side business!  I was so proud of her!  But I wanted her to take more pride in it and in herself.

Wyatt…I admit that it took time for me to start liking him.  But when he started taking care of Brooklyn, my heart warmed a little more each time.  A man who does that for a woman he just met has got to be something special, right?

I really enjoyed this book, especially because it was such a different one from Piper Rayne’s usual gut-busting rom-com.  I needed Brooklyn and Wyatt together at the end.  And oh man, the ending!!  Hurry, ladies!  I need the next one!  I gotta know!!!  I wanna see if my guess is right!!

Lessons from a One-Night Stand (The Baileys Book 1) by Piper Rayne is such a fun beginning to the series!

Synopsis:

If you’re a guy like me, and you find yourself having banged your sexy new boss—the school principal—in the back of your Jeep one drunken night, here’s a few takeaways based on my experience...

Lesson One: Always get her FULL name.

Lesson Two: Consider asking what she does for a living.

Lesson Three: Find out why she’s moved to town. Get details. Details are crucial.

Lesson Four: Don’t alter her bio in front of an auditorium of high school students unless you know she has a sense of humor for that sort of thing.

Lesson Five: If you ignore Lesson Four, apologize instead of flirt when you’re sent to the principal’s office.

Lesson Six: NEVER sleep with her again.

Lesson Seven: Pay attention to this one—it’s the most important of them all.

Don’t fall for your one-night stand.

Class dismissed.

Ceej’s Review:

Piper Rayne never fails to bring the perfect mix of fun, giggles and belly laughs, angst that hits you in the chest, and heat that makes you wish for cold shower!  And Lessons from a One-Night Stand is no different. 

Austin is an amazing man.  Piper Rayne needs to send him to me.  Sorry, Holly.  LOL.  Hotness, compassion, intelligence, strength, loyalty, and understanding?  Sign me up!  Even considering how long it took him to come around, I’d still love to have someone like Austin.

Holly is a woman I’d love to hang out with.  She made me laugh.  And her reason for moving to Lake Starlight?  It made my heart go out to her.  The way it ended made me want to stand up and applaud her yet my heart broke a little for her. 

Austin’s sister Savannah…I don’t know if I like her yet.  His other sister Phoenix…all I have to say is she’s lucky I’m not her older sister.  I’m old school and I would not tolerate her behavior and attitude.

Piper Rayne, this is such a fun beginning to the series!  I can’t wait to see what else you ladies come up with!

Bedroom Games Box Set by Piper Rayne is a set full of stories ready to fill you full of belly laughs, giggles, sighs, tears, hotness, and love!

Synopsis:

It may be the Winter Classics, but the bedroom games are about to begin…

As a set of three Olympic snowboarders head to South Korea to compete, none of them knew that they'd be competing for their hearts.

 

This box set includes:

Iced Out (Bedroom Games #0.5)

Previously exclusive material only available to Piper Rayne newsletter subscribers. Exactly why do Grady and Mia hate each other in Cold as Ice?

Cold as Ice (Bedroom Games #1)

An enemies-to-lovers AND best friend's little sister romance between half pipe snowboarders Grady Kale (Rogue) and Mia Salter (Lil' Salty). What happens when you're thrown in to a press tour with your ex-best friend's little sister who you're seeing a new light? You realize karma has a sick sense of humor.

On Thin Ice (Bedroom Games #2)

An enemies-to-lovers… well more enemies-with-benefits involving snowboard cross snowboarder Dax Campbell (Soups) and downhill skier Demi Harrison. What happens when you lose your edge and your superstition is sleeping with the girl who believes you're the devil incarnate? You hope for a divine intervention.

Break the Ice (Bedroom Games #3)

A friends-to-lovers romance between slopestyle boarder Beckett (Hoff) Myers and slopestyle skier Skylar Walsh. What happens when your best friend agrees to help you rehab from a broken arm? Lines blur, that's what.

The Ice Box (Bedroom Games #4)

BRAND NEW novella written from Brandon Salter's (Salty) POV..

Ceej’s Review:

Iced Out: This one broke my heart, not just with what happened with Brandon, but with what why Mia and Grady hated each other.  And it happened at such a bad time.

Cold As Ice: In true Piper Rayne form, there was everything from grins to chuckles to belly laughs to sighs to “where’s a cold shower when you need one” to “oh my heart!” to “I wanna smack him” to pure joy.  I really enjoyed this book!  And I have one word for anyone who hasn’t read it yet…medibation.  LOL!  Go get your copy now!

On Thin Ice: As usual, Piper Rayne brings the heat, the humor, and that bit of a heart clench with On Thin Ice!  I enjoyed this even more than the first book in the series.  Why?  Because I really enjoyed watching an obnoxious guy turn on the charm to sway the woman that hates him.

Break the Ice: is such a sweet best-friends-to-lovers book and brings all the feels along with the trademark Piper Rayne humor!  It’s full of fun, hilariously funny, so frustrating that you want to smack both of them upside their heads, beautiful, and of course seriously hot!

The Ice Box: Finally, the HEA Brandon deserved after Iced Out!  The Ice Box totally melted my heart!

Engaged to the EMT (Blue Collar Brothers Book 3) by Piper Rayne is filled with hot, sweet, and sexy surprises that I couldn’t help but revisit multiple times!

Synopsis:

A Sexy FAKE RELATIONSHIP rom com standalone written by a duo of two USA Bestselling Authors

Luca Bianco is a jerk. There I said it.

He thinks he’s so suave and sexy, walking around in his paramedic uniform stretched out by all his hard muscles and saving lives every day. I swear he thinks every woman in the world would kill for a chance to be with him.

Men like Luca are good for one thing only—a one-night stand—not commitment. I don’t care if my friend did pay good money at a charity bachelor auction for me to go on a date with him, I refuse to do it.

That is until Luca offers me a deal I can’t refuse, and I agree to be his pretend fiancé.

The heat that’s simmered between us for a decade ignites and I’m not sure even Luca will be able to kickstart my heart after I call code blue.

What’s that saying? Love is blind?

Not true. I can see this head-on collision coming a mile away.

Ceej’s Review:

Engaged to the EMT was the Bianco Brothers book I have been dying for!  It’s filled with hot, sweet, and sexy surprises that I couldn’t help but revisit multiple times!

Piper Rayne knows how to turn a man that I would dismiss into one that makes me swoon! Luca Bianco was a man that I normally would roll my eyes at and turn my back to.  He’s cocky, a bit childish, and the tiniest taste of douchecanoe when he’s in the mood to be...or so I thought.  He is intelligent and capable, and yes that bit of childish (he is the baby of the family after all).  But underneath?  He’s a man who has a huge heart that’s sweet, caring, loving, and gentle.  And the way he is with Lauren?  Oh my heart!

Lauren…she had me grinning from the very first book in this series!  I love, love, LOVE her passion, her strength, her love for her chosen family, and her fighting spirit!  I adored how she fought with Luca!  The sparks!  Oh the sparks!  I just knew they’d be perfect together!  And the moment when her heart broke?  She made mine break along with hers.  Although, I was yelling at her I to be patient.  Even with the fight in her, I loved her vulnerable parts, too.

Move over Maddie and Mauro, Luca and Lauren are my favorite Bianco family couple now!  Piper Rayne, I don’t know how you ladies do it.  I really don’t.  I knew you’d make me like Luca.  I wasn’t expecting to love him.  Engaged to the EMT is my favorite Blue Collar Brothers Book!

Crushing on the Cop (Blue Collar Brothers Book 2) by Piper Rayne is a swoon-worthy story full of giggles and belly laughs, sarcasm, angst, and serious hotness! 

Synopsis:

Cristian Bianco has two things against him-he's a police officer and he's a police officer in the 18th District…meaning my dad is his boss.

Growing up as the Commander's daughter and having his magnifying glass focused on everything I did was more than I could handle.

Now, I'm out on my own, living by my own rules. Well, mostly. The 'job' I created for myself has me in some hot water and my exit strategy isn't exactly working out how I'd hoped.

Which is why when my best friend bids on Cristian for me at a charity bachelor auction, I'm not having it. A man in blue is only going to be one thing for me-a problem.

Except after his brother starts dating my best friend he becomes harder to ignore. The eight-pack abs. The sense of style only a girl like me can appreciate. The way he puts his family first. It all adds up to make him one irresistible prospect and has me wondering if he knows how to use those handcuffs the right way-by locking my wrists to his headboard.

A sexy BOSS'S DAUGHTER romcom standalone in the Blue Collar Brothers series.

PRE-ORDER price of $2.99!

Ceej’s Review:

Piper Rayne never fails to provide stories where the romance matches up with the heat level and Crushing on the Cop is no different!  A hot cop who is a good man, sweet, built, loyal, loves his Mama, and not a Lothario?  GIMME!

Cristian…I seriously love him.  I knew I would when we met him in the previous book, but his heart is even bigger than his…d…defined sense of right and wrong (what did you think I was gonna say, huh?) and that’s the biggest part of why I love him.  He made me laugh and swoon and made my heart drop for a moment!  Piper Rayne, I need a Cristian.  Like yesterday.

Vanessa…I love her, too!  I mean, who doesn’t love a tortured heroine who eventually finds her way with the help of a sweet and loving man?  Admittedly, there were times I wanted to shake her or force her to open her heart as well as her eyes, but she needed to learn how to do that on her own.  She made me laugh, made me proud, and made me want to cheer!  I’d love to have a friend like her.

Piper Rayne, you gave me yet another couple to hold close to my heart.  I can’t believe you made me love Cris more than Mauro!!  And, okay, I can’t wait to see how you’ll make me love the last brother.
