I used to think that if you could combine all three into one female, you’d have the perfect woman. The other guys in the Single Dads Club razz me for wearing the crown of the forever bachelor. The one who’ll be in his seventies chasing down young hotties in his wheelchair.
Then why the hell does Ava Pearson—an outdoorsy girl, a brunette, and a woman who screams stability and responsibility—seem to be the only woman on my mind lately?
Especially when I’ve got enough obligations without adding any complications to the mix—my son, my bar…well, that’s about it. But that’s enough for a guy like me.
It’s the cupcakes. It’s gotta be the cupcakes she bakes that keep me coming back for more. After all, the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach, right? Well, it’s apparently a direct target to his dick, too.
Did I forget to mention that she’s my buddy’s daughter…another member’s daughter?
Ava might say she can handle being friends-with-benefits, but I’m not sure she can. Unfortunately for her I’m too selfish of a prick to care—until I do.
“Ahh! I knew Dane would end up being my favorite of this series...and there is still another book to go! … I FLOVED this book!” ~Goodreads Review (Angela)
“What a sweet, sweet second installment of the Single Dads Series. Don't deny your sweet tooth and take a bite out of this! Well done ladies, well done!” ~Goodreads Review (Chloe)
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.
★★★★ Four Stars
Danes story!!! The man a lot of people didn't like in book one finally gets his own book and he will win you over. What you see is definitely not what you get with Dane Murray.
I've always liked Dane. He's cocky, arrogant and a player, but he's also single dad to Toby. Between running his bar and doing dad things he doesn't have time for a relationship. He's scared of commitment, has his own insecurities that he just hides better than most people, but with this book you can really get inside his head and see why he's the way he is.
Ava's first meeting with Dane sees her drowning her sorrows in his bar and the chemistry between them sparks straight away. I liked Ava. She's trying to be independent. She's determined to make her bakery a success and isn't afraid to put in the long hours at work. Of course the fact her bakery is opposite Danes bar is both a blessing and a curse. Trying to keep things between them quiet isn't easy when Dane has an unhealthy addiction to Ava's cupcakes.
This book is fun to read. It's lighthearted, got its sweet moments, plenty of hotness and the bond between Dane and son Toby will melt your heart. The twist in this story made me fall hook line and sinker for Dane. He was nothing like I was expecting to him to be and he's definitely my favourite character upto now. I'm really enjoying the Single Dads Club series and I can't wait for Garretts story next.
