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 absolutely loved this story and I am loving the writing style of Piper Rayne and just the way they make you feel the story like it’s believable and real. I haven’t read a bad story by this duo yet. And I have read almost all they have to offer.

This story is brilliant and you just know that with secrets there will inevitably be trouble. But sometimes you just can’t win when it comes to keeping your feelings guarded. Vance is amazing in this book and the friendship he has with Leo and Jagger is true a bromance if ever I read one. But the way he is with Layla and especially her children Payne and Via was just amazing and made you swoon. That is what won my heart with this book.

Layla is brilliant a no-nonsense taking single parent, that knows how to looks after herself and her own. Until Payne scares all the help away. Vance needed an actress and Layla needed help. The Manny was born from this and it’s was fantastic.

This book is a huge recommendation from me and so is all other works by Piper Rayne.

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.
