Afternoon Delight, the next standalone in the romantic and hilarious Charity Case Series by Piper Rayne is LIVE!

PRAfternoonDelightBookCover5x8_MEDIUM.jpg

The perfect man for me is the one who broke my heart.

#thanksbutnothanks

Once bitten.

Twice shy.

Yeah, I wish.

I’m on a mission to find myself a nice, solid, respectable man. The only problem is nice, solid, and respectable comes in a meh package and is B-O-R-I-N-G as hell.

It’s been established. I have one type. Bad Boy. I tried the other flavors, I really did. But there’s nothing like the allure of a man who takes what he wants without apology.

As if my love life isn’t dramatic enough, Dean Bennett walks into my life again thinking he’s going to win me back with his charm and charisma. He might come in a different package, but under that expensive suit he’s still the same cocky, arrogant, pompous prick who only cares about numero uno.

I’m not that naïve young girl anymore so I have to ignore the fact that the way he looks at me practically sets my panties on fire.

Everyone deserves a second chance to right a wrong. The problem? He’s not just an ex-boyfriend…

He’s my ex-husband.

They said I was a bad idea. Poor. Violent. Criminal. 

They said I’d amount to nothing, and I believed them
too. 
Until I met her.



Layla saved me from my worst, but sacrificed her best to do
it. Now the tables have turned, and it’s time for me to bring her back to the
land of the living.

But I might be too late.  


Because sometimes our worst demons are those we never
expect. And sometimes getting rid of them isn’t a choice at all. 
The odds have always been against us, but this time is
different. But how can I be her true north if I’m still finding my own
direction? I’ll never know if I don’t try. And one thing’s for sure: I’ll try
anything for her.

Blurb
Archer has always wanted what he can’t have—Quinn Dawson. Since the
moment he saw her, he’s been denying his feelings for her, ignoring the void in
his heart he knows only she can fill.
Everything about them was wrong, the kind of wrong that felt so right.
But none of it mattered. Not the terrible timing. And definitely not the mess
it would create if Archer made a move on his best friend’s baby sister.
It was supposed to be one night, but one night is all it takes to make
everything more complicated, and they only have nine short months to sort it
all out.
No, none of it mattered. Until it did.

Excerpt
Those
little bitty shorts ride up her tight ass as she walks. I want to put my hands
on it. Press my cock up against it as I kiss her neck, gathering her hair into
one hand and move it over her shoulder.
I swallow
hard. I can’t think like that. Not here. Not now.
Not ever.
“Are you
done?” Quinn puts one hand on her hip and for a split second I think she knows
what I’m thinking.
“Yeah,” I
say, picking up my last piece of bacon. I pop it in my mouth and stand,
bringing my plate over to the sink. Quinn takes it from me and bends over to
let the dogs lick the remnants of eggs. Her ass is in the air right in front of
me, and I wonder if she’s doing it on purpose to get a rise out of me.
Because she
is, and I have to change my stance thanks to my hardening cock.
“Quinn,” I
start, not sure what to say, but I have to say something. “We should talk.”
“About
what?” She straightens up and rounds on me, crossing her arms. Her eyes meet
mine, drilling in with an intensity I’ve never seen from her. She has little
flecks of blue in her brilliant green irises that I haven’t noticed before.
I move
closer, stepping over Boots. If I say it now, there will be no more wondering.
No more waiting. She’ll either take me or leave me, but at least I’ll know. I
can kiss her now or move on. Somehow, someway.
It’s not
hard. All I have to do is open my mouth and let the words come out, speaking
with unwavering vehemence as I tell her how I feel.
Yet, I
can’t.
Standing
here looking at Quinn, with her messy hair, thick sweater hiding her perfect
tits, and dogs circling around her feet in hopes of more food, I feel more
nervous that I did the first time I stood in front of a patient on the
operating table with a scalpel in my hand.
“Archer?”
“Your
wrist. How’s your wrist?”
“My wrist?”
she questions, nostrils flaring. She lets out a sigh and picks up the plate the
dogs licked clean. “Same as yesterday. I ordered a posture brace on Amazon to
help with my shoulder pain, not that you care.”
I’d offer
to massage her shoulders, but the moment my hands land on her back, all bets
are off.
Suddenly,
Quinn advances. She’s inches away, arms crossed tightly over her chest and head
tipped up to mine.
“That’s not
what you wanted to talk about.” She pulls her bottom lip between her teeth and
cocks her head. “Is it?”
“Quinn.”
“Don’t Quinn
me, Archer Jones. You know as well as I do you weren’t going to talk to my
about my wrist.” She lets out a frustrated breath and lets her arms fall to the
sides. Her fingers brush against me, and my skin feels electric just from that small
touch.
Goddammit.
“But fine.
I’ll play that game. Here.” She holds up her hand. “Examine me, doctor.”
Her words
are meant to mock, but they do the opposite. I’ll examine every inch of her
body. Twice. Three times. Just to be certain nothing was missed.
I take her
wrist and tug her forward, knocking her off balance so she falls against me,
both her hands flat on my chest. I slip my other hand around her waist,
stopping at the small of her back. Quinn’s lips part and she gasps.
Instead of
struggling to get away, she relaxes in my arms, and nothing has ever felt more
right.
Even though
this is wrong.
Quinn is in
my arms, back arched and tits against my chest. My cock is hard, pulsing
against the confines of my jeans. Thunder booms above and Quinn shivers.
“Do you
still want to talk?” My voice is gruffer than I intend, but the harshness does
something for Quinn. She slides her hands up my chest and around my shoulders.
“There are
other things I’d rather do,” she says, voice breathy. Fuck. She’s killing me. She
brushes her hips against mine, feeling my erection through my pants. “And I
think you would too.”
I do. I so
fucking do and she knows it.
“Archer,”
she says softly and hearing her whisper my name is almost enough to make me
come right then and there. I slowly bring my face down to hers. I’m going to
kiss her. After all this time, it’s finally fucking happening.

On a Wednesday afternoon, I ask Trevor Bentley
to marry me. He might be the most arrogant, obnoxious man I know, but I need
him to be my husband for a year.

There are reasons.
He’s not going to be a real husband. Just
part-time. Yes, I have to live with him. And, okay, I also have to share his
bed. And, sure, he’s the sexiest and most exciting thing to ever happen to my
controlled, organized life.
But still… It’s only a part-time marriage.
I’m not going to give him my heart. I know what I’m doing, and I’m too smart to
fall for my husband.
I hope.

Excerpt

I’m feeling
warm and relaxed when I finally get out of the bathtub. I usually don’t walk
around the apartment unless I’m covered up, but since Trevor isn’t here I just
wrap a towel around me. My hair is piled up messily on my head, and I’m
carrying my bath salts and soap.
I open the
bathroom door and nearly run smack into Trevor.
I give a
little squeal and immediately look to make sure my towel is in place. “I didn’t
know you were home.”
“I just got
back.”
“I was in
the bath.”
“I know
that.” He’s looking very sexy in that end-of-the-day way he has. Five-o’clock
shadow. Slightly loosened tie and collar. Half-lowered eyelids.
God, the
man is hot.
“I could
smell you as soon as I walked in the door,” he adds, the slightly rough words
doing nothing for my flustered state of mind.
“You
smelled me?” I’m thinking all kinds of things at the moment, and none of them
are suitable to share with the man in front of me.
He reaches
over, and I swallow over a quick intake of breath. I think he’s going to touch
me. I want him to touch me.
He touches
my bath salts instead. “This stuff you put in your bath. I smelled it as soon
as I walked in, so I knew you were in the bath.”
“Oh.”
It’s
perfectly logical. And kind of a disappointment.
His hand
moves from the bath salts, and his fingertips slowly trail up my towel to the
bare skin at my collarbone. It’s barely a touch, but it makes my skin flush and
a pulsing begin between my legs.
“What did
you think?” he asks, his voice a little thicker than normal.
“What did I
think about what?” I have no idea what he’s talking about. My brain isn’t
exactly functioning at the moment.
“What did
you think I smelled?”
“I… I
didn’t know.”
“I see.”
It feels
like he sees.
It feels
like he sees all of me.
I’m staring
at his plum-colored tie because it’s safer than meeting his eyes right now. I
don’t want him to know how I’m feeling, how his touch, his presence is
affecting me.
“Melissa?”
“What?”
“Are you
planning to move out of the doorway? I need to use the bathroom.”
And that’s
like a load of bricks on my breathlessness. I’m able to meet his gaze now with
a cool expression as I step out of the doorway.
I’m on my
way out of the room when he says, “We can return to this particular
conversation a little later in bed if you want.”
Damn it.
The asshole
knows exactly what I was feeling just now.
Fortunately
I’m not feeling it anymore.
“I don’t
think so.”
“You sure?”
I turn my
head and see him smirking at me, as if he thinks he’s already won.
He hasn’t
won.
“Yes, I’m
sure. The problem is that any kind of conversation with you involves your
infuriating personality, and that just doesn’t work for me.”
“I think it
does.”
“You think
wrong. And I thought you had to go to the bathroom.”
“I do.
We’ll resume this conversation at a later date.”

Bad

Too bad she doesn’t want me to be HER boyfriend.
Because she bought me for someone else…

Excerpt

The moment
I orgasm he thrusts his hips and fills me so deep I can’t breathe. The muscles
in my legs are spasming. My eyelids flutter closed—not sure if they want to
stay that way and drag the moment out behind a curtain of fireworks on black,
or open wide to see the whole thing in perfect clarity.
They lose
the battle and stay closed as pleasure courses through me in waves. My muscles
contracting against his cock. The low growl comes from deep within him as he
reaches his climax with me, and then the explosion as he comes inside me.
I laugh. I
can’t help it. I just smile, and laugh, and let the happiness and satisfaction
bubble out of me like some wild child who’s never been let out to play.
“Jesus,” he
says, his body relaxing.
I lean my
face up into his neck. Smelling the new leather of his jacket, the faint scent
of antiseptic from the tattoo, and aftershave leftover from this morning.
He grabs my
hair, pulls it—not too hard, but not too softly either—until my mouth is up
against his again.
We don’t
kiss. We don’t even move. We just go still.
I can feel
him smile. I’m sure he can feel me smile too.
“Now what?”
I ask.
“Whatever
you want, Oaks,” he replies back, kissing my lips softly. Tenderly.
“I’m not
talking about—”
“I know
what you’re talking about,” he says, cutting me off. “And my answer is still,
‘Whatever you want, Oaks.’”
“But—”
“Shhh,” he
says. “Stop thinking.”
I laugh.
“No one can stop thinking.”
“It wasn’t
a request.”
“No?”
He
continues to kiss me. His mouth more urgent. His lips more demanding. His will
imposed.
“No. We’re
going to take that pizza inside,” he says. “Then we’re going to fuck in a hot
shower so we can get warm. And then we’re going eat dinner naked in front of
your fireplace.”
I just
smile.
“Any
objections?”
“Can’t
think of any.”
“Good,
because that wasn’t really a question either.”

With a few simple words, my reliable routine crumbles to dust.

Excerpt
“Listen,
babe—”
She holds
up her hand like a stop sign and for some reason, having her interrupt doesn’t
bother me.
“Did you just
babe me?” Her question is all sass.
“Sure did,
sweetheart. Call ‘em like I see ‘em. Don’t pretend to be offended. We both know
why you’re over here talking to me.”
Her face
turns an adorable shade of pink. “First, stop with the nicknames. Second, are you
for real? What the hell is wrong with you?”
“I don’t
see any issue. You’re the one disrupting my quiet evening.”
“What the…
I mean, seriously? I want to sit down and this is the only available spot. You
honestly think I came over here to hit on you?”
Her
ridiculous question doesn’t deserve a response. My glare matches hers as I
silently explain my opinion on the matter. My expression must tell her
everything she needs to know.
“Wow,
you’re an asshole.”
“You’re the
third woman to call me that tonight. Be careful, I might get a complex.”
“Aw, poor
baby. I’d hate to dent your fragile ego,” she snips with a curl in her lip.
“There’s
nothing fragile about me. Don’t worry. I’m hard and solid. Wanna feel?” I ask
and pat my abs.
She nods to
my hands. “No, thanks. I’d hate for you to rub off on me.”
“Does the
grease under my nails bother you? Princess is afraid of getting a little
dirty?”
“Do you get
a rise out of being mean?”
I lean
against the bar and cross my arms. “I don’t get many complaints. You’re not
from around here, so I’ll fill you in—the ladies love me.”
“Pretty
sure I saw Barbie McCleveage storm off after chatting with you. She didn’t look
too satisfied.”
“Now who’s
using nicknames? Jealous much?”
“Hardly,”
she huffs.  
I smirk
before checking out her rack, being extremely obvious about it. Pushing her
buttons takes away the tension from earlier, replacing it with a surprising
ease. Fighting with her is the most nonsexual fun I’ve had with a woman in a
long time. Wonder how she’d react if I called her ma’am.
“All right,
all right. You’ve broken me down. I was set on not having any company tonight,
but for you, I’ll make an exception. If you insist on standing here, blabbing
away, I’ve got far better uses for that luscious mouth. My place isn’t too far
away,” I suggest while waggling my brows. My behavior is over the top, but what
can I say? She’s bringing out the best in me.
Her lips
part in shock. This stranger just stares at me, and I’m sure she’s about to
turn away… or slap me. Either way, mission accomplished.
But this
chick is full of surprises.

 Synopsis:

Everyone in Fate, Texas knows that Bluebell Carter has always been a little bit crazy. There was that time she colored her hair pink and the time she keyed her boyfriend’s car not to mention how she up and left town and her daddy in the dust ten years ago. Rolling back home in an ugly orange bridesmaid dress was not the reappearance she’d ever planned to make and staying in town was the last thing she ever thought possible. Then again, being in Texas does crazy things to her brain (maybe it’s the heat?) because before she can say “bless your heart” she finds herself tangled up with a handsome, hard-muscled cowboy.

Zach West earned his hard body the old fashioned way – lots of hard work on hard Texas land. He’s spent his life playing the role of responsible West brother, the oldest, the protector and guardian. His father’s death left him to care for two younger brothers, a grieving mother and a ranch. He’s had enough of caring for other people to last a lifetime and zero plans to add a woman to that list but Bluebell has a way of driving him nuts that’s impossible to resist. He dreams about her long blonde hair and even longer legs. She’s pretty enough to drive a man to drink, to sin… but to love? Now that’s just crazy.

My Review:

Crazy Little Thing Called LoveCrazy Little Thing Called Love by Jess Bryant

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This book! I loved it! 5 Stars!

I cannot believe it took me so long to read this book! Was I hiding under a rock? Damn!

I absolutely loved this book! I loved everything about it! The premise, the characters, everything! Jess Bryant, you rock!

One of my top three favorite genres of romance is anything to do with cowboys. I swear I was a cowgirl in another life because when I read them, I connect and relate so easily. And Zach and his brothers are some sexy and sinful cowboys!

Bluebell and Zach…..
The perfect, angsty, sexy couple.
After reading the blurb, I thought Blue would be a flighty, selfish character. Not that that is a bad thing it is just what I inferred. I was wrong. I thought Blue to be smart, independent, and confident. And while she did have some issues of selfishness, they were no more than anyone living in her shoes might have. Blue was amazing. I loved her from the very beginning. While Blue was dealing with some personal and tragic issues, she found herself a distraction in the way of a sexy cowboy named Zach. Hmmm, Zach was definitely yummy. He was a strong, willful and hard, no pun intended 😉 as he ran his family’s ranch. Neither were looking for forever so they were perfect for each other. No feelings will be involved. Sure…right…tell me another another lie, lol.

I won’t go into details. I won’t tell you how this story unravels but I will tell you how engaged I was, how I couldn’t turn pages fast enough. I loved every second of this book. Even the parts that made my heart beat faster in way that wasn’t from happy circumstances. There is a lot going on in this story.

There are also two more sexy West brothers that I can’t wait to read next! I absolutely recommend this book to all my GR friends. You will love it!

This is my honest and unbiased review. Thank you for taking the time to read it! 🙂

Synopsis:

Chevi Lane runs with the big boys. Being CEO of a fast-paced, cut-throat boutique auto company, she has to. You might not even tell the difference if not for her hourglass figure, pretty face and wicked tongue. Chevi’s on a fast track to change the world, one auto build at a time. It takes one man to teach her how to slow down.

Jet Maverick is not just ten years her junior, he’s a lifetime behind her in lots of places that matter. Except, Jet knows how to take apart a car and put it back together in a few hours, how to design a genius hybrid engine that could put Mustang on top, and how to fine-tune her body like no one else before. Bonus? He talks like Romeo and looks like an underwear model.

Can Chevi trust the young intern with not just her company’s future, but her heart?

This book is emotional. All the feel are present on the pages and ended up in my heart. I was gutted at times for the issues that Jet and Chevi dealt with. Specifically Chevi.

Chevi is a successful business woman. She runs an auto boutique and is never happier than when she is creating custom automobiles with her two cousins, Bolton and Bentley. Loved those two! While Chevi is a success as far as her bank account goes, she is a mess inside. Chevi is dealing with so many issues and my heart hurt for her. I will say that she is not perfect. Despite the author doing a great job at helping me understand what Chevi was dealing with, she frustrated me at times with her hot and cold behavior towards Jet. There was one particular moment in the book I really did not like her. After that scene, I wasn’t sure I could like her. But in the end everything was moving as it should and I was able to get past my dislike of her.

Jet on the other hand was perfect. He has been through a lot of disappointments in his life leading himself to believe he was unworthy of good things happening to him. That mind-set of Jet’s broke my heart. He was no alpha, but when he put his mind to something, he saw it through. Even if it looked as if he would be unsuccessful, he didn’t give up. So glad he didn’t give up on Chevi because she needed him. He needed her. Jet is intensely possessive and protective. Loved that trait in him.

I won’t give you any spoilers but I will tell you that this book gives us the struggles of alcohol addition and how it is effecting our heroine. While I don’t personally have any experience with this subject, I thought the author did a great job at helping me understand. Mustang Maverick is an intense, emotional and extremely sexy story of two people who truly needed each other to fight the demons in their lives. The end of the book has a couple of incredible epilogues that left me sighing and swooning. I’m so happy I got to read Jet and Chevi’s story. Their HEA was well deserved!

This is my honest and unbiased review. Thank you for taking the time to read it. 🙂
