Manic Monday by Piper Rayne BLOG TOUR
The perfect man for me is a blood-sucking lawyer. #pfftwhatever
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’m back 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.
Then I see Reed Warner again, and 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.

Victoria is one very strong woman whom I greatly admire. Due to her mom's declining health she moves her daughter, Jade, and herself back home to Chicago. They are now living with her mom while she is working a full time job and going back to school to finish her degree. She has no time, no desire for dates/relationships. Plus no trust due to cheating ex.
Reed is beyond awesome in every way. He was the best man for her ex in their wedding but he doesn't have any qualms about that. He and her ex had a falling out many years ago. Victoria really struggles with that and the fact that he's a lawyer. He has so much patience and slowly breaks down every wall and gains Victoria's trust. It was so beautiful that these two connect on some many levels.
Reed gets the job offer of a life time but it means moving out of the area and possibly leaving Victoria and Jade behind. Victoria has to decide whether to uproot Jade and her own life to follow Reed.
I can't decide which point I like best in the book.....when Reed and Victoria first run into each other at Jade's school and right in front of the busy body mom's he leaves all their's mouths hanging open, including Victoria's when he passes by her and says 'Nice seeing you again. We'll have to catch up." or when Jade's dad shows up to pick her up and Victoria's mom has lots of snide comments..... Love that woman!
This was a wonderful easy flowing, warm, fun read.

Piper Rayne, or Piper and Rayne, whichever you prefer because we’re not one author, we’re two. Yep, you get two USA Today Bestselling authors for the price of one. Our goal is to bring you romance stories that have "Heartwarming Humor With a Side of Sizzle" (okay...you caught us, that's our tagline). A little about us... 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.
