The perfect man for her is the one she hates most. #gofigure

Dating is hard.
Dating in your thirties is even harder.
Dating in Chicago is harder still.

I haven't given up on finding my happily-ever-after, but in the age of swiping right and Netflix and chill, I'm wondering if everything is as temporary as my marriage turned out to be.

Truth is, there is one guy I can't get my mind off of.

Roarke Baldwin has salt and pepper hair I've dreamed of running my hands through and I'm pretty sure that if I checked he really does have a six pack of abs underneath his suit. And I've always wondered what that stubble on his face would feel like between my thighs.

The problem? He's the one man I hate more than my ex-husband…

His divorce attorney.

Every time I review a Piper Rayne book, I feel like I should just cut and paste from my last review.  Not that the books are the same.  Just that I'm always like "best book ever," "favorite one," "absolutely fucking loved."  Blah blah fuckety blah.  *insert rolling eyes*

No, but seriously.  It's ridiculous how much I enjoy these books.  This author duo has me by my eyelashes, and I like my eyelashes.  I will pick up every single book ever written and if they ever start sucking, we will all hear about it.

HOWEVER.  This one did not suck.  This one was right up in my top 3 Piper Rayne books and my fave in the Charity Case series.

I've been dying waiting on this one.  Bee tee dub.  You CAN read them stand alone, not as enjoyable as each couple has their own story, but you won't be lost.

Roarke.  Holy silver fox story.  I never thought someone would be able to write a hot silver fox that would work in my mind.  Piper Rayne did.

I loved the story of ruthless attorney Roarke, peeling back his layers for only Hannah to see.

And then we have closed-off Hannah.

Both independently wealthy.  Both independently successful.  Both with thriving careers.  Both succeeding in life riding the single train. No one needed saving.  Yet, together they are even more of perfection.

What I truly loved aside from all of the above?  The five favors.  And wait until you get into the five favors that Roarke asks for.  What an amazing spin and the best fucking part of the whole book.  The utilization of five simple favors.  Brilliant.

Roarke for the win 100%.
