Title: Real Deal
Series: Single Dads Club #1
Author: Piper Rayne
Genre: Romantic Comedy
Too much make-up.
I could go on and on. The other guys in the Single Dad’s Club would say I’m obsessed with finding them. But none of their kid’s mothers call a maximum-security prison home either, so their opinions mean shit.
Caterina Santora has her own list of red flags…
She’s too young.
She’s my client’s daughter.
She’s my five-year old’s camp counselor.
Even after repeating this mantra to myself every morning on the way to Lily’s summer camp, guess what happens the moment I see Cat? Yeah, that mantra turns into ride me, doggie style and reverse cowgirl.
Every. Damn. Time.
The fact that she doesn’t remember me from seven years before grates on me until I don’t have it in me to leave her alone any longer. I have to have her. But our lives are opposites in every way. In no way compatible.

Review by: Jennifer
Marcus is a single father, trying to raise a five year old girl, and he is getting the hang of the barbies, hair, and all the other girly stuff. Always putting Lilly first is the most important thing to him. When he puts her in the summer camp that caters to single parents, the last thing he was expecting was for Lilly's camp counselor to be a blast from his past. Cat, a daughter of one of his clients, and Marcus have a bit of a history, so when Cat acts like she has no clue who he is, it hits Marcus hard. Cat remembers just who Marcus is, and if it wasn't for Lilly she wouldn't talk to him at all. The two know just why they can't give in to temptation; age, Lilly, location being the main reasons. But what happens when they give in, how will this all work out? Will it be just a fling or something more? Can they keep this a secret in this little town?
I found the story of a single father, something we don't often get, totally refreshing. This was such a good book, with an interesting storyline, characters that make you laugh out loud, and the fact that you could totally understand everything and the reasons behind certain choices made this such an easy read. I can't wait to see who is next up in this single dad's club! I give this 5 stars.
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.
