The perfect man for me is a charming, sexy, hot as hell lawyer who knows how to negotiate his way into my panties.
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.
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Gosh I just love Piper Rayne books. I also love how they are all interconnected in some way but complete standalones. For me this makes a character connection stronger.
Manic Monday was so good. If you’ve read Piper Rayne’s Dirty Truth Series, then you already know Victoria. I adored her from the start and was thrilled to learn she was getting her own story. Victoria is a strong, independent heroine. She is not a push over and isn’t afraid to speak her mind. This is trait of hers that she unfortunately learned the hard way.
All thanks to an a**hole of an ex-husband.
Reed was so perfect. I loved him from the very minute he appeared. He was so smooth and sexy. As well as attentive and romantic. When he sees Victoria, all bets are off. Reed will do anything to make her his. Of course there are some obstacles that get in his way, the biggest being Victoria herself.
I really enjoyed how their relationship played out. I felt their connection. It was strong and believable. This book also has a good amount of secondary characters that added more depth and entertainment to this story.
I don’t want to say too much more because this book is not too long and the pace is nice and steady. You can probably read it in a few hours without interruptions. I read it in one sitting while my kids were in school, so happy to not have to deal with interruptions.
I absolutely recommend this book. You should check out all Piper Rayne books. They are some of my favorites. This author duo has never let me down.
This is my honest and unbiased review. Thank you for taking the time to read it. 🙂
