Manic Monday (Charity Case Book 1) by Piper Rayne


The perfect man for me is a charming, sexy, hot as hell lawyer who knows how to negotiate his way into my panties.


Been there.
Done that.
Burned the T-shirt.

I didn't swear off all men after my divorce, but I sure as hell swore off anyone remotely like my ex. On the top of that list? Attorneys. Everyone knows they can't be trusted.

Now that I've moved back into my childhood home in Chicago, my focus is my daughter, my mom and me. I haven't given up on finding my happily-ever-after, it's just on hold-indefinitely. Yup, life is in a real upswing.

Then I see Reed Warner again, and I'm reminded of all my mistakes. I push him away, but somehow he weasels his way into every part of my life, not willing to take no for an answer.

In spite of my better judgment I can't stop thinking about the way his designer suits fit his muscular frame, or the way his blue eyes seem to eat me up with every glance.

You know when you're on a diet and even hummus seems irresistible? Reed is like the equivalent of chocolate éclair and my willpower is fading fast.

The problem? Not only is he a lawyer…

He was the best man at my wedding.

I never tire of Piper Rayne books.  Ever.  The style of writing, the plots, the humor.  All does me in.

Who would ever fall in love with the best man at their own wedding. Wait.  It doesn't really happen like that.  It's not really this crazy love triangle, wedding night menage trios.  Except for that one part at school pick-up... 

But Reed was the best man.  In all senses of that statement.

The humor is ever present in this one from the PTA Mean Girls, to the dickhead ex, to the loveable Reed and everything in between.

But Reed really is everything in this book.

Duo Piper Rayne once again rains down perfection of how rom con is done, holds the reins of my attention on this one while holding the reign on my brain.  Fancy shit there, huh.  Hopefully I got my word usage right because I'm not re-reading or redoing it if it's wrong.  

What you need to get out of this?  It's a fun, entertaining romp in romance.
