Blurb:

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.

 

MY REVIEW: 

The Manny is a wonderful story of how a man trying to make his dreams come true finds himself in love with three people he never dreamed would be a part of his life, much less his heart.  It is a story packed with belly laughs and snickers, sighs and trembles, panic and pain, and love and joy.

I thoroughly enjoyed watching Vance fall in love with Layla and her children, but imagining the guy who was a movie producer become a manny?  I couldn’t see it.  Until Piper Rayne wrote it.  They never fail me in my quest to be enlightened while being entertained.  I’m a sucker for a story of a good man falling in love with a woman and her children.  Especially when that man didn’t really like kids before he met them.  My favorite scene though, was the one where Vance started his first day as The Manny.  That had me snort laughing!

Vance’s best friends are ones that made me laugh, but one in particular made me want to punch him a few times.  Want to know which one?  You have to read it for yourself!

Piper Rayne, thank you so much for a story that my heart needed!  You ladies never fail to provide the snort laughs, sighs, and that ever sneaky pang.  I can’t wait for more from you ladies!

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.
