Review: The Manny by Piper RayneGenres: Contemporary Romance, Romantic Comedy

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.

I’m excited anytime I hear Piper Rayne is releasing a new series! The Dirty Truth series is on its way and starts off with The Manny.

Vance (brother of Charlie in Sexy Beast) and Layla are both part of the Hollywood scene. Vance needs a star for his movie and the person funding the project only wants Layla. Vance is instantly smitten with Layla and when she needs help with her two small children, he steps in immediately. Let the fun begin!!

Vance would love to be the leading man in Layla’s life…but yet he played the villain in her past..she just doesn’t know it. Yet.

The Manny was a quick, fun, sexy read with a lot of sweet and just a pinch of drama! Layla and Vance had immediate chemistry and a slow burn that made this book HOT. However, Layla’s kids, Payne and Via absolutely stole the show!! Vance’s friends Leo and Jagger are the funniest thing ever and I look forward to the meeting them in the next two books in the series!

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.
