SynopsisWho 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. 



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.

Lennon is on a mission. She's at the point of her business venture when she needs to secure financing in order to make her vision of being a sex toy manufacturer a reality. And when she finds a way to track down a potential investor, it's on. Sure, her family may think that she's gone to the loony bin, but that won't stop her. Nothing will. That is, until she meets the person who could make or break her business.

Jasper isn't anything like the man Lennon was expecting. He's not old and grayed and married. Instead, he's handsome and charming and damn near perfect. Her intention of cornering Jasper and convincing him to fund her business goes out of the window. Instead of money, Lennon wants the man.

A sweet and sexy romance blossoms between our couple and Lennon feels like she's walking in the clouds. Until a phone call turns everything upside down and reveals something Jasper has been hiding. And it's a doozy. But Lennon is in too deep to bow out, now.

I wasn't really prepared for this book. I've read the first two books of this series and both had a deep emotional element to them. I was expecting to see one here, too. Yet, this book threw me for a loop. The twist surprised me and then the entire feel of the book changed. It became a roller coaster of emotional events that left me wanting to swoon or cry.

All of the characters in this story were great. I already loved Lennon, even if I did worry about her maturity level in previous books. Here, she really stepped up to the plate and impressed me. I also loved Jasper. From the first meeting, I found him to be a great match to Lennon's colorful personality. Jasper's mother was a little frustrating at times, but even she grew on me in the end.

The romance was scorching hot. There is satisfying chemistry between our couple right from the start. The love scenes begin early on and continue at every turn but I never lost interest or felt the itch to skim over them. I can honestly say that even though I really liked the other two books of this series, this is by far my favorite. 

In closing... 
It seems the series is over now that all three of our ladies have found their matches. While I'm sad to see it end, I'm excited to see what else Piper Rayne has in store for us! Five suns!
